    Without Vision

    “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” – Proverbs 29:18 Abib stands for Early Spring. In the Hebrew lunar calendar, around March or April, was when the Israelites were led out of Egypt into a blooming new land full of milk and honey.  (Exodus 13:4-5)  It was a good time to travel. Spring is significant of new life, and new beginnings.  It gives us something to look forward to when the winter of life becomes treacherous and never ending.  We all look forward to ground hog day, hoping for a sign that spring is near.  We all need a vision, a hope for a…

    Faith In Action

    “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” – Hebrews 11:1 Trust is an act of faith.   Faith is not evident in your life if you do not activate it.   “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” – James 2:17 It takes faith to trust in God. You can’t see Him, but you know in your heart He is there, and that He loves you beyond measure.  Jesus died on the cross and left his Holy Spirit as our comforter; to encourage us in our faith, as signs and wonders follow them that believe. (Mark 16:17) The Lord…
