A few days ago, I was thinking about God’s relationship with us. Most times we think about the flip side of this, i.e. our relationship with God. However, for a change, God had me viewing it from His perspective. Have you ever given this much thought? Have you ever thought about how God sees our … Continue reading God’s Relationship with Us.
So, there I was, doing my own thing and having my own way. I was like a small ship in a large ocean with no sail or rudders to guide me.

Let’s jump straight in and mention these scriptures from the onset. Matthew 5:13 “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men” Luke 14:34-35 Salt … Continue reading Remember You Are Salt!
