Targeting Grace

We had plans for a quick trip to Walmart to grab a few things and then head back to the RV Park; Abba however had different plans. Dave mentioned we could leave early and breakfast at Panera Bread and I thought about it for about two seconds and acquiesced since it was His idea. It

Prayerful Grace

There are times to walk the streets, to sit in church or sit and soak in His presence. Then there are season when you are called to hide away for a bit in order to intercede. It seems recently that we have been inundated by prayer request and desperate situations. Literally there have been days

Simply Grace

Witnessing Demystified Sometimes I think church teaching about witnessing has complicated the process to the point of actually keeping people from witnessing. There are several methods that are taught where you need to memorize Scriptures in a certain order and use them to birth someone into the kingdom. This often leads many Christians down the

The Choices of Grace

Today’s travel was harrowing, watching other people break down, coming upon a wreck just a after it happened, the intense heat and of course the traffic going through Pasadena. It did however cause me to reflect on how Abba not only promises to order our steps but to guard them as well. There are always

Kisses of Grace
