A short devotion: God paints a beautiful masterpiece with the ashes of our lives. It's only when we finally realize that only He can pick up the pieces that true happiness and fulfillment can enter in. Satan tries to keep us down and steal our joy but God says let me turn this trial into triumph and this test into a testimony.Read more ...
Sometimes I feel a personal connection to this past Sunday’s Gospel lesson. Remember the story? The sower and the seeds. I wonder if sometimes our (and my) message is falling on rocky ground, that is, it’s falling on ground not prepared to receive the message, whatever that message may be.
