He Cares

“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” (1 Peter 5:7 NLT) Why are we so independent?  Why do we always feel we have to do everything by ourselves that is for ourselves?  How many times have we endured frustration we wouldn’t have had to endure, or struggled much more… Continue reading He Cares

"Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms.” (Psalm 68:19 NLT) I was reading last year about a young man in China who carried his friend to class every day.  His classmate was suffering from Muscular Dystrophy and was unable to walk.  So for some 200 days a year for the… Continue reading Praise
