The Heart of Our New Creation In Christ

The Holman Bible Dictionary gives a thorough explanation concerning the definition of the English word “heart,” when it states: The heart is the center of the physical, mental, and spiritual life of humans. This contrasts to the normal use of kardia (“heart”) in Greek literature outside the Scriptures.

Limited

At times, I sit and wonder what this life is truly all about. As I sit under the dark skies of the evening, observing the thousands of visible stars, I wonder just what we are.

Although I have only watched the program a few times, the phrase has stuck with me. This program usually has families that have faced some sort of turmoil … Continue reading With No Desire To Change

Disarray

The man or woman with a smile that can light up a room, instantly putting a smile on everyone who is within sight of it. That person who always has a witty joke to share. The guy who goes into the soup kitchen on Saturday to help feed the homeless. A woman whose life revolves around making sure her children have everything they need in … Continue reading Disarray
