What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task. I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, Read More >
I just want to encourage our prayer lives. There is never a time in our lives when we should not be in consistent communication with our Father in Heaven. Don’t know how? Just open your mouth and pour out your thoughts to God. Still don’t know what to say? Romans 8:26 advised us that “Likewise Read More >
Tonight I had the privilege to join, via facebook, a bible study that Sydney attends at Ohio State (TBOC Bible Study). Darnell Dees was the worship leader and in his worship he emphasized the “daily” part of daily bread. This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your Read More >
We Need All The Pieces
The other night I was watching “Discarded Things”, a movie on PureFlix, and a few lines from one scene have been speaking to my heart each day. We’ve all heard analogies about life, here are a few that I’ve come across: Life is like a roller coaster. It has its ups and downs. But Read More >
I’ve being trying really hard to not get in a mundane routine during this national pandemic we know as COVID-19.

Is “New Normal” Really New?
During this national pandemic, known as COVID-19, we often hear: I wonder when things will get back to normal. I don’t think things will ever be normal again.
