To Where the Sun Sets

My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to me, because my name will be great among the nations,” says the Lord Almighty. Malachi 1:11 These verses in Malachi are interesting because they come in the middle of a rant from the Lord about how His people have treated Him. God has asked the prophet Malachi to tell His people that although He has loved them, they have not returned the love. He uses words like contempt and profane and...

Five Minute Friday: Weak {And a special Announcement}

It’s Five Minute Friday where I join Kate Motaung and the #FMFParty girls to write flat out for five minutes. No editing, no polishing, and then link up together. It’s been a long time since I was able to join the party but I’m back now! So come join the fun! MIDDLE Go. I don’t like to admit that I am weak. I’d prefer no one know that I have hurts habits and hang ups. I’ll keep my foibles go my self. Thank you very much. The apostle Paul wrote about his own weaknesses saying, Because of the extravagance...

Love surrounds

Many are the woes of the wicked, but the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in Him. Psalm 32:10 NIV Love Surrounds I love the warmth of a heavy blanket. I sleep with the covers pulled up to my ears and my arms tucked in tight. There’s also a blanket across my feet. It’s not always about being cold, but more often about being surrounded. The Psalmist reminds us that the Lord’s love surrounds us when we trust in Him. That love is unfailing. It is all-encompassing. It’s a love that forgives. And it is all ours...

Love One Another for Love Comes From God

Love Comes From God Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to...

Hannah had prayed fervently for a child and she promised to dedicate the child to God if...
