WATER! you are what you drink.

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own” (1 Corinthians 6:19). Therefore, brothers and sister, we must take care of our bodies, even as we take care of our places of worship.

God is still moving

There are a thousand reasons why you should trust God with all your heart. But, just knowing that God sent His only son to the cross to die for you, is reason enough. However, many people do not trust or even think there is a God. Despite all the compelling and convincing evidence, they reluctantly decline to believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior.

Here is an audio clip that has been around since I was a kid. I hope you will find touching and convincing as I have.

Is The Catholic Church A Force For Good In The World?

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the Catholic Church is a force for good in the world. When it comes to preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, and looking out for the poor, the Catholic Church is second to none. It has, more so than any other religious institution spread its wing in diverse places across the globe. Wherever there are suffering and oppression, the Catholic Church is there to lend a helping hand.

Nevertheless, the Church is not perfect. Its failings in recent years and in its distant past continue to be an Alcatraz around its neck. However, such failings should not in any way shape or form take away from its importance as a force for good in the world.

I strongly believe was it not for the Catholic Church, even with its failings, the world would be worse off than it is today.

God holds your future in His hands

“He that spared not His own son, but delivered Him up for us all, How shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? (Romans 8:32)

There are a thousand reasons why you should trust God with all your heart, but just knowing that God sent His Son to the cross to die for you, is reason enough. Since God allowed His only begotten Son to suffer and die an agonizing death upon the cross so that you could be forgiven, How could He ever fail you in any other way?

 If you can trust Him for your eternal destiny, how can you not trust Him for your entire earthly journey? Will not the One who is preparing a place for you in heaven take care of you while you are on this earth? The God who holds your future is the God of your daily peace, your daily joy, and your daily bread.

God holds the future in His hands

Dread not the things that are ahead,
The burdens great, the sinking sands,
The thorns that o’er the path are spread,
God holds the future in His hands.


God holds the future in His hands
and every heart He understands.
On Him depend,
He is your Friend,
He holds the future in His hands.

We know not what tomorrow hides,
Of sun or storm or good or ill;
We only know His dear hand guides,
And He will be our Father still.


His hand created earth and sky,
The zephyrs and the storms that rage,
And years to come and years gone by
To Him are but an open page.


Live close to Him and trust His love,
Assured that while on earth we roam,
Whatever may come, He bends above
To guide His children safely home.


James Rowe (1866-1933).

Let God fight your battles

“The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent” (Exodus 14:14)

How blessed you are to have God fight your battles. When God is your defender, you don’t have to argue back, fight back, yell back, or talk back to others.

You don’t need to plan out your arguments to justify your actions. God does not need to use your tongue as His weapon of warfare. Quietness of heart, mind, spirit, and voice will keep you in a place of great peace,

You do not need to defend yourself or justify any of your actions if you are walking in obedience to what God has asked you to do. If your actions are based upon God’s calling in your life, it is justification enough. If what you do is motivated by love, this is reason enough.

Psalm 59 is David’s prayer to God when he faced imminent death at the hands of Saul, Who had sent men to watch David’s house to kill him:

 1 Deliver me from my enemies, O God;
be my fortress against those who are attacking me.
2 Deliver me from evildoers
and save me from those who are after my blood.

 3 See how they lie in wait for me!
Fierce men conspire against me
for no offense or sin of mine, LORD.
4 I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me.
Arise to help me; look on my plight!
5 You, LORD God Almighty,
you who are the God of Israel,
rouse yourself to punish all the nations;
show no mercy to wicked traitors.[c]

 6 They return at evening,
snarling like dogs,
and prowl about the city.
7 See what they spew from their mouths—
the words from their lips are sharp as swords,
and they think, “Who can hear us?”
8 But you laugh at them, LORD;
you scoff at all those nations.

 9 You are my strength, I watch for you;
you, God, are my fortress,
10 my God on whom I can rely.

   God will go before me
and will let me gloat over those who slander me.
11 But do not kill them, Lord our shield,[d]
or my people will forget.
In your might uproot them
and bring them down.
12 For the sins of their mouths,
for the words of their lips,
let them be caught in their pride.
For the curses and lies they utter,
13 consume them in your wrath,
consume them till they are no more.
Then it will be known to the ends of the earth
that God rules over Jacob.

 14 They return at evening,
snarling like dogs,
and prowl about the city.
15 They wander about for food
and howl if not satisfied.
16 But I will sing of your strength,
in the morning I will sing of your love;
for you are my fortress,
my refuge in times of trouble.

 17 You are my strength, I sing praise to you;
you, God, are my fortress,
my God on whom I can rely.
