What Do/Will People Think of Me?

How many people allow this question to terrorize them? I would say the vast majority of people allow this question to eat away at their spirit. I have. When I returned to this area in January 2014, this question plagued me. All I could think was that I left the area on a high note. … Continue reading What Do/Will People Think of Me?

Delayed Revelation

This topic has been a recurring theme in conversations today. In neither of these conversations did we use the term "delayed revelation". The presence of this principle was obvious. The first conversation that brought this to mind was some commenting back and forth with another blogger.

Happy Anniversary: One Year of Overcomers Church

Despite the rumor that we were no longer meeting, we celebrated one year of worship together.
