    Divine Direction – Faith To Start

    Hey hey hey (think Fat Albert…I loved that cartoon as a kid)! Man, I love my church!  It fills my tank back up from the week of the world that can sometimes empty that tank and really gets me thinking.  I had a very rough week, but God has kept me afloat (albeit knots in my stomach) and continues to put scripture and people of faith in my life that remind me that His love is real and endures all.   Even though I have been a born again Christian since I was 13 years old,  I haven’t grasped the true power and love of God, well into my adulthood.  I…

    Divine Direction – Power to Become

    I really enjoy going to church.  It is something that I grew up doing and it wasn’t forced down my throat, but by my parents’ examples, it was easy to follow their lead.   My relationship with God is the single most important thing in my life, yet I do not judge others that do not have the same belief system as myself.   I believe that everyone must respect differences and no one should experience shame for anything ever!
