I recently happened upon two articles that, while seemingly similar, resulted in different outcomes.

The second article involved a college woman who felt uncomfortable Read More …

#tbt – Joy. It’s not just a dishwashing liquid!

(Originally written 7/20/06) Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me [with thy] free spirit. Psa. 51:12 This was going to be a theoretical discussion about joy, but I’m beginning to see that God is going to use this study as a way to test me as well.  I’ve already been tested Read More …
