Ignoring the Presence of God

Our world is filled with God’s presence. I used to think God only showed up if you  asked him to. Or for the truly spiritual. And of course God could never meet you in your own home when you’re alone, it had to be at church. Yes, church is where God is. Fortunately I was…

The Sparrow

Ever feel like God doesn’t see you? In a sea of over 6 billion faces, how could he recognize yours? Sometimes I don’t feel special or important to God, but that couldn’t be any further from the truth. The truth is that God doesn’t play favorites.  His love is the same for each one of…

Weary and Burdened
