A Promise to Renew Your Strength

We’ve talked about mistakes we made in 2009, and our hopes for a better new year. However, hoping won’t make it happen. “Turning over a new leaf” won’t make it happen. We have to resolve in our hearts to follow the Lord, learn His ways, and lean upon Him.

Can you resolve to let the

The Promise of Peace in 2010

Yesterday I asked the question: What would your life be like without worry or stress?

A Promise of Peace (continued)

We’ve been talking about peace–how to get it, how to keep it.

In today’s devotional in My Utmost for His Highest, Oswald Chambers says this:

A Promise of Peace

Everyone longs for peace–yet, if you watch the news, peace seems to be in short supply. Do you experience peace in your life? Consider this:
