In Difficult Times, God Hears Our Weeping

by Denise Boggs
The Lord has heard my cry for mercy;  the Lord accepts my prayer.  Psalm 6: 9 It seems that everywhere you go now people are discouraged, hurting, and afraid.  The news media gives us a steady flow of painful reports that often overwhelm us with concern, and attempt to steal our hope. Unfortunately, in our cluttered and hyper-paced lifestyles we often rush through our challenges and attempt to control the outcomes ourselves.  We sometimes get drawn-in to the painful reports and feel overwhelmed with the difficulties. It is important to recognize that in our times of difficulty, we have a […]

Where Can I Go to Find Safety?

by Denise Boggs
“It is better to trust and take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in man.”  Psalm 118:8 In the days we are living, there is troubling news on every side.  There are wars and rumors of wars, famines, and earthquakes in various places. Everywhere you turn, you hear of devastation. Many are like the man who called our office today from another country asking: Where do I go where it is safe?

Whether you turn to the right or the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, “This is the way; walk ye in it”  Isaiah 30:21  When we have decisions to make and doubts are flooding our soul and others suggest courses of action that are conflicting, when caution dictates one approach but faith the other, it is the time to stop and be still.  The scripture says, “Be still and know, I am God” (Psalm 46:10).  This gives us the permission that it is “ok” to quiet the intruding opinion of others around us and then calm […]

Our God is With Us

“I cried to the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of His holy hill. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me.”  Psalms 3:4-5 There is turmoil and difficulties in our world that continually confront us.  We are challenged every day, and it is often hard to keep our minds and hearts set on God.  We know He is with us, but we often neglect to acknowledge and recognize His blessing in our lives.  He Loves us so much that even as we sometimes ignore Him, He is always there to hear […]

God’s Purpose for Your Life

by Denise Boggs
“I will cry to God Most High …who brings to pass His purposes for me and surely completes them.”  Psalms 57:2 AMP Do you seek and desire to know what is your purpose?  You may be wondering, “Why am I here and what am I suppose to do with my life?” So many times we run here and there pursuing this idea or that idea trying to discover God’s purpose for our life. We read in Psalms 57:2 that God has established His purpose for each of us and He will bring it to pass. All we do is continue […]
