Something Needs to Change?

by Denise Boggs
“Search me [thoroughly], O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts and see if there is any wicked way within me…” Psalms 139:23-24 When we pray this prayer it is usually when we know something needs to change at the heart level.  No real change occurs outside of trust and relationship, for these are two of the most important functions of the heart.  In a relationship with another, you must be willing to change and trust that God will work in the other person by showing them what needs to change. The rules that govern the […]

Learning to Trust Again

by Denise Boggs
“He heals the brokenhearted and bindeth up their wounds.” Psalms 147:3 God has made full provision for healing the pain of past so you can trust again.
