Giving It Up For God!

As Lent came around this year, I really had no intention of giving anything up.  Not that I wasn’t interested, but I didn’t have any ideas on what to do.  However, on Monday I had a conversation with God and to my surprise HE gave me an idea! It went something like this…. “Should I […]

The Struggle with Sacrifice

This coming weekend is my church’s “Consecration Sunday.”  Your church may call it something different, but it basically comes down to the one Sunday of the year when the church asks each person in the congregation to pledge what they will give to the church for the upcoming year.  This is all in an effort […]
