May 17, 2017 – DO NOT NEGLECT THOSE IN NEED

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 A lot of people we meet daily, walk around with plastic smile on their faces but with heavy hearts. Beneath their designer clothes and expensive accessories lies a broken and shattered person who longs for someone to share his/her thoughts with. As little and insignificant as a warm smile and kind words might seem, they can be the emotional healing someone is longing for. Have you ever passively said things like, “it’s going to be alright” or “God will see you through” to someone and their faces...

MAY 15, 2017 – WHY CAN’T I TOTALLY FORGIVE?

Text:  Colossians 3:13  Bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.

EMOTIONALLY BATTERED BUT NOT BROKEN

In my search for love, just like many others experienced while growing up, I had an experience of disappointment and pain; I was emotionally battered after I broke up with the first person I loved. It was a relationship I cherished so much as it was my first time of experiencing those good feelings of sharing one’s affection with someone. From my perspective, the relationship was built on those boyhood fantasies that had no realistic perspective to them. At that time, was I mature for an intimate relationship? NO. Did I know what love was all about? Not at...
