Worry and the Question of God's Sovereignty

Worry and the Question of God's Sovereignty

Growing up in Church this was one of the easiest verses to memorize.  I even remember a song to the tune of these words spoken by Jesus, never really thinking about the context of it, except that I should be seeking God first in my life.  As I continued to grow spiritually...

Three Ways to Glorify God in College

Three Ways to Glorify God in College

A few weeks ago I started college again at the local university after studying Christian ministry online for over a year. Just walking through campus the differences I noticed between the two were almost tangible. It wasn’t until I sat through all my classes when I began to really think...
