Why You Should Write Yourself A Letter

I wanted to let you in on a letter I wrote to myself the November before last. As I re-read these words recently, my eyes welled up with tears at all God has done since this was written.

God’s Compelling Love For You

God’s love. Many people claim it, several more talk about it; but few truly understand it. Paul called it incomprehensible and unfathomable; Job recorded it as unsearchable and limitless. Jeremiah confirmed it is everlasting. John described it as the evidence of being a follower of Christ. Mark reminded us to demonstrate it to God with all our heart, soul, mind, …

When God’s Dreams Are Being Birthed In You

Mary is my Bible hero. I must admit she’s one of many favorites but when I think of someone I long to be like, I think of her. Upon greeting her Gabriel spoke: “Good morning!
