Resources for Life

The journey of life and faith can be overwhelming without connecting and staying connected to God , the very source of our life and a sound support system keeping us on track in the right direction. Our resources are rooted in the infallible and eternal word of God. Staying connected to God and one another reminds us that we are not alone in our struggles, battles and victories. We all need to be encouraged, cheered on and cared for.

We have a number of helpful resources for you, including encouraging scriptures, blog articles and audio scripture readings.  Check it out, below!

The world loves to celebrate love, and the 14th of February celebrated by so many cultures, was born as a day to remember and celebrate human love preceded by divine love. The most selfless and greatest love story ever told and worth remembering as we celebrate the love of our lives, family and friends, is…

He is that light that shines through even in the darkest of times. He gives us a fresh start when we cry out to Him. Hope is very vital to our existence on earth. It is a deep tangible feeling of desire with anticipation.

God directly speaks to the hopeless in the following verse among several others in our shared life resource, the Bible. "For I…

The response to pray for  family and friends, for other people, intercede for our nation and the nations of the earth is an outflow of God’s love and compassion poured into our hearts. Thessalonians Chapter 5 verse 17 enjoins us to pray without ceasing which means that we should not desist from praying! The question is how do we apply this scripture in our everyday life that has so…

| Resources for Life, Trials | No Comments
Praise is a verbal expression of gratitude to God. It is also an act of worship. It is easy to praise God when our lives are going smoothly and according to plan. Praising God regardless of what is going on in our lives is not only an act of worship but also a declaration of faith and trust in God. Praise does not ignore the facts of our current situations, what praise does is to magnify God over our situations. God is never overwhelmed by any situation and is beyond capable of taking care of every situation that arises in…
