Seek Wisdom

The God of the universe, who is infinite in knowledge...wait…let that sink in. Infinite in knowledge.  He will give wisdom to all who ASK. God is not holding back and providing wisdom for us. Firstly we have to either humble ourselves or become humbled in order to see that...

Shameless Post

A strange thing has been creeping up on my twitter feed a lot recently that boggles my mind, and I don’t understand how it doesn’t set off some warning bells for other readers as well. This “Shameless tweet” idea. A person seems to think that if they start the...

Praise to the | Conference?

  Conferences are great. They inspire, ignite and encourage people to make change happen, not only in their lives, but in their worlds.
