Hola from Janet Perez Eckles…Igniting Your Passion to Overcome

God doesn’t promise a day without problems, or moments without trials, but aligned with Him,  He promises a satisfied soul.

Two days ago, even my keyboard felt sticky. The air conditioner decided to stop working. And, in the Florida summer heat, my energy was melting into drops of worry.

Hello from Kathy Collard Miller, here in the Southern California desert.0098_Miller

It was always difficult for my mother to relax and trust God, and even when she was in her 80’s, it seemed like the Lord was still inviting her to trust Him more. My sister and I would say to each other, “You’d think the Lord would stop working on people when they get old enough, but He sure seems to still be working on mom.”

IMG_2939Bob Hostetler here, offering another prayer for writers:

Sometimes it might be tough, but it’s never too late to find the correct direction and head in the triumphant path for our ministry.

From time to time I ask myself why God chose to bless me with friends who don’t mind going out with me. What I mean is that heading out with a blind friend cannot be fun. Instead, it might be a chore as I need guidance and descriptions of many things. Read More →
