Let It Be Jesus In Our Prayer Lives

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

Let it Be Jesus...in our Prayer Lives.The Law of God doesn't require that you "pray three times a day" or "pray early in the morning" or "pray long prayers". The Law of God requires far more...it requires you to "pray without ceasing" (I Thess. 5:17). This means to pray all the time, from...

Whatever It Is

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

Whatever it is...don’t let it steal your joy.  Whatever it is...don’t let it discourage you to the point of giving up.  Whatever it is...don’t find your identity and worth in it because you won’t find it there. At least not in a lasting way.  You...
