Good morning.


Once again I, Mike, have been stirred by an article put out by pasters.com. The following is the gist of the article.


As followers of Christ we aren’t perfect. We all fall short from time to time. The Christian life is a guilt-free life, but it’s not a mistake-free life.


The Bible never hides this truth. It is painfully honest about the failures of its heroes. God saved the world after a flood through a man named Noah—who then got drunk and naked, and blew it all. Moses led the children of Israel through the Red Sea and into freedom—yet his anger kept him out of the Promised Land. King David, a man after God’s own heart—had an affair and arranged the murder of the woman’s husband so he wouldn’t be discovered.


Not only does God realize our frailty, He has a solution for our failures: grace.


Paul tells us that "When you were spiritually dead because of your sins and because you were not free from the power of your sinful self, God made you alive with Christ, and he forgave all our sins. He canceled the debt, which listed all the rules we failed to follow. He took away that record with its rules and nailed it to the cross."

(Colossians 2:13‭-‬14 NCV)


You and I—just like those heroes of the Bible—are trophies of God’s grace. The amazing part of God’s grace isn’t just His power to forgive. It’s the strength He gives us when we start over. God can turn failures into triumphs. God can transform broken lives.


With this in mind, what have you got to be thankful for today?


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. You have reason to be content today. God is your portion. The idea of our “portion” is a rather strange concept to us. But in the ancient Hebrew culture you knew what the “portion” of th

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
