WHO AM I…? REALLY?

WHO AM I…? REALLY?

Who am I? Why am I here? Why was I created? For what purpose was I created? These are the questions of a searching heart.

We look to the stars for our purpose. We look to nature for ‘the why’ of our existence, then we worship IT. We try to satisfy…

But neither one of them had the courage to go to the kitchen.   Then, all of a…

FOR FREEDOM HE CAME TO SET US FREE!

She was only 13 as she stood on the auction block that day. Her head held high but she was filled with such shame and sadness. Her clothes were worn and filthy from working in the cotton fields from sun up to sun down… and she was only 13. Her life had been one of loneliness and misery. Her parents were torn from her when she was five years old and sold to a slave owner 10 miles from the…

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY – HUSBANDS AND FATHERS!
