    Broken Records

    Ever notice how some people feel the need to blast the music they are listening to.  I drove by someone who was blaring their music so loud… I cant ever understand it.  Can u not hear it good enough for yourself?  Or is the message behind the song so urgent that you need to force it on the rest of us? The bible says to travail and pray without ceasing.  (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) But be assured that God is not deaf to your cries.  He knows our hearts cry before we utter a single word.  I often hear from my fiance, i’m not a mind reader! As in, “Be specific.”…

    I’ll meet you there

    “When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.” – Isaiah 43:2 Recently there was a boating accident on the St. Lawrence River here in Ontario.  Three men were fishing on a boat; two lives were saved, one was taken. I can only imagine what it would feel like, to feel so helpless and out of control in such a situation.  The world can take so much from us at a moments notice, yet still, I know…
