Messages in difficulty and loss . . .

Sacred Signpost #5: Struggles

Messages from God come in many packages. Primary is the Word of God in found in Scripture–the treasure chest we are privileged to have in the Old and New Testaments.  Scripture is “God-breathed,”  which is what inspiration means. I cannot encourage you enough to drink deeply of the Word of God. If you find it […]

How do we stay fit in the life of faith?

Sacred Signpost #3: Surrender

Hello friends!  On last week’s Ziglar LIVE broadcast,  I addressed the question of fitness in the life of faith. There is so much emphasis in our world on physical fitness, but how much more important is spiritual fitness?!  So much so, that I encourage you to do as I once did:  agree with God that […]
