Marriages are being pushed to the limits and loneliness is a daily experience for many. The risk of getting ill from coronavirus for many has become a secondary fear to the pressure of the pot. But, here is the thing. Instapots make the best stews. There is something about the pressure environment that the Father uses to bring to the surface things that were hidden.

The Tree and the Rock (A Parable)

Jack Hancock Awakening, Growth, Walking with God Leave a Comment

by Dr. Jack Hancock There once was a large smooth Rock that was clearly visible to the people.  Everyone saw the Rock and marveled at its strength, size and appearance.  The people were proud of this Rock and the “way it was”… they were comfortable with it.

It’s like when Moses had to lift his arms to win the battle. Kenny Loggins was holding up my arms. Thank you, Kenny.”

Why’d the Introvert Cross the Road?

by Jessie Flowers I like my cozy little corner of the road. I like comfort and quiet. A lot. Throughout my life, I’ve enjoyed being alone. I enjoy eating by myself, going to the movies by myself, cooking by myself, shopping by myself, walking by myself. Thankfully, I like me. Maybe it’s because I grew up in a really rural …
