My favorite bible verse

Do you have a favorite bible verse? Philippians 4:6 is probably the first Bible verse I ever memorized. I was about 12 years old, and visiting the Philippines when my older cousin introduced me to the gospel. At that time this verse was used to remind me not to worry about school, friends, and every day problems of being a teenager. Today this verse helps me with work, family, and the every day struggle of living in this world. My problems and worries have changed as I get older but my reliance on the word of God and his promises have not changed.

Thoughts on God…and Hawaii (Regular Updates)

Keep your eyes on the prize! Have a great morning (or night). Please keep our brothers and sisters in Hawaii in your prayers as they go through what looks to be a storm with some punch.

If you are from Hawaii, let us know how everything is going out there. Prayers to all. PJSLB

update 1: breaks my heart to see this on Facebook as i have countless friends and family in direct path of this hurricane.

A Christian life full of scars

I come to church today full of scars. I remember the years in church screaming and begging for a breakthru. Instead, life was full of challenges and false starts. I never understood the journey I needed to take but I was strong in my faith (even when life told me I am crazy).

Today, I sit here in church with my breakthru. You would think after waiting for all these years, i would be “over the moon”. The thing is, I feel the same. My love for God is still the same, my trust in God remains. The only difference is I have more scars and more stories to share about how God provided in the end.

Have a great weekend my brothers and sisters in Christ. PJSLB
