He keeps our tears in his bottle

I sit and write these letters that I write and sometimes I just cry. I just can’t stop them, and unless you know me you won’t know the reason. In Psalm 56, it talks about our tears, and says they are precious to Him. God knows why tears run down our face, that’s why He wrote it in His book.When I look back and see my life, I cry tears of dismay.

Inspirational Message

When was the last time you really enjoyed your work? Impossible? Many would say “yes” but many others would say, “It really is possible to find fulfillment through our work.”God created work for man even before the Fall in the Garden of Eden. We know work is a good creation from the Lord. He gives us the opportunity to find fulfillment in our work as we submit to Him and seek to love those around us in Jesus’ name. As the Holy Spirit lives in and throu...

Go ahead: Take God out of everything!

Wow, now that I’ve grown up, I look around me, and I think IR...

Its founders, Dr. and Mrs. Bill Bright, were greeting all the staff members who were joining the ministry t...

Instead, they have followed the stubbornness of their hearts;…’” (Jeremiah 9:13-14a)Why has the land of Israel been ruined? God answers that question. His people have forgotten and rejected His law.

Listening for love

The first thing I hear on any given morning that I am visiting my daughter is the sound of a very small, happy and contented voice. It is my little grandson playing happily on the bed between his parents, learning the names of his toys, the sounds animals make or the parts of his body.Between finding the dog or the circle in the toy crate, there is plenty of time for cuddles and hugs. This toddler has nothing to fear; he is surrounded by the faithful love of his parents....
