And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
As a result, I was convinced if we would just fill the airwaves (the internet) with the Word of God and the love of God, His Word would not return to Him void, but it would accomplish what He pleases and would prosper in the thing whereto He sent it. If we would just obey His leading and leave the details in His hands, it would reach those He intended to reach.

Text taken from King James Bible
“And the Lord God said,it is not good that the man should be alone;I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof”
The family is very essential to any greatness that a nation wants to experience. Without any iota of doubt the general despondency and lawlessness that exist worldwide today is as a result of the moral crass and endemic failure of our various family values system. When a family fails,it creates a domino effect that ultimately fails the community, the nation and the world at large.

I remember being in second grade and sleeping in an attic bedroom. I felt alone, scared, and disconnected from my mom, stepfather, and my brother—my father’s biological child.
I remember being in sixth grade and feeling too chubby and awkward for anyone to like me. I wondered if I could ever capture a guy’s attention, a guy’s heart.
I remember being a senior in high school, but instead of being at school I was sitting at home depressed and pregnant. My boyfriend already had a new girlfriend. I wondered if there would ever be a man who would love me and my child.

Last week I fell victim to the lies of satan. He caused me to become despondent and discouraged. However through the comfort of online friends, church members and others, I began to emerge from this very personal battle I was fighting and losing.
In my failing battle, I had forgotten the “armor of God” and the One to whom I should have turned to during my battle. I knew and believed in God. I didn’t fully place my faith and trust in Him. Had I done so, I would have beaten satan at his own game; fighting his deception with the Word of God just as Jesus did after his fasting in the desert.

“God takes us into the depths so that we may reach the heights.” I thought that sounded pretty good. I patted the shoulder across the corner of the kitchen table with what I thought was a comforting sort of pat.
“I don’t even know what that means,” he said, shrugging his shoulder out from underneath the next pat about to land on it.
“Romans 8:28, God works all things to the good, and all that. You know the verse.”
“I’m hurting here and you’re dropping Scripture bombs on me?”
One day God will look at the poem he has created out of us and go “In Me I am Most Glorified!” In the meantime we must live in what is sometimes the slavery, burdensome, tiring, everyday life we live now. So what do we do in the meantime? How do we learn to live in the Gospel of Grace in a works driven world?
The Impossible Boss?
Have you ever worked somewhere where your boss or the company gave you a list of tasks or an unreasonable time span to do it in, not enough resources, not enough support and said OK your performance review will be based on your ability to complete and the accuracy of the completeness of this list…
