Hebrews 6:12 Through faith and patience they inherited the promises. Which of those two virtues do you struggle with more, faith or patience? For me it's definitely patience. It's easier for me to trust God's promises than it is to trust God's process. I hate to wait. But I'm challenged by the words of Pastor John Piper, "patience is faith in God's timing."

My knee jerk reaction was "May the Fourth be with you!" Star Wars quip which was quickly followed by disbelief and fear. It was a yay/yikes kind of feeling. I felt like a mom who just found out that after a year of tr
“Now give me this mountain.”
What is the tallest mountain in the world?
It depends on how you are measuring but most experts say Mount Everest. The topographical giant is 29,000 feet above sea level. It’s considered the rooftop of the world, you can see three countries from the summit. While Mount Everest may be physically the tallest mountain in the world, all of us face mountains even taller. We come against challenges and obstacle that stand between us a
