Are You Losing Faith in God?

There is a disturbing trend in our world today. Many people are walking away from faith in God. More disturbing, I don't think it is a trend, I think it is a real dilemma in people's lives. Because of the tragedies they have seen in our world, they wonder, "How could God exist with all ...

Obstacles……friend or foe?

Obstacles are part of life. We face them daily and when we do, I don't know about you, I don't like them. They keep me from forward movement. Obstacles are a frustration that distracts from my goal.
