This scripture got down in my spirit this morning. Last night, the Lord brought to mind the scripture penned in Hebrews 12:1: “…let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.

I mean, who wants animal manure in the middle of the pretty Christmas story? Yuck!!! It’s almost like we had to do the […]

A heavy oppression weighted down my shoulders. I could feel the pressure even in my knees as I walked block after block. It was late, and darkness overwhelmed me, even amongst the bright flickering lights of the city that never sleeps. My eyes caught sight of a young girl, not much older than my own […]
