If it matters to you, it matters to God!

God cares about even your smallest desire! Whether it's at work, in business, at home, or deep within your heart. He cares! Think of your child who wants a toy.

Are you looking for your tail with your head underwater?

It’s Okay to Have a Bad Day

My dear friends, Yesterday I was full of sorrow. For the past few weeks I have been experimenting with replacing complaining thoughts with the thought, “The Lord will help me,” and trying to be upbeat, look for the positives, express my gratitude to my loved ones and my God, and mostly just try to pretend … Continue reading It’s Okay to Have a Bad Day
