Change of Heart

“Sometimes God doesn’t change the situation, because he is trying to change your heart.” I am pretty sure that many Christians have probably heard this quote before, or have seen picture images of it surfacing all over the internet and on social media. And I am pretty sure that most Christians, when reading it, would nod their heads in agreement or even say a silent…

God is in the Details

We have heard the expression, “don’t sweat the small stuff,” and that is a powerful and important statement.
