You are a WORTHLESS NOBODY!!!!!!!

That is a powerful sentence.  “You are a worthless nobody!” Now, who in their right mind would say that to somebody?  Well, I know there are some out there that would mean that.  However, most of the time, we have said that to ourselves.  Case in point, I have lived in this sphere for the last two years now.  It’s not all the time, but off and on.

Good will always overcome evil

It’s a sad day when you wake up to the news station discussing a horrific event that has taken place in our country.  As a Christian, pastor, and leader, I am continually saddened by all of the martyrdom, famines, starvation, malnourishment, and human trafficking that takes place all around the world.  It seems that everywhere you look, evil prevails.  What a hopelessness!  And yet… (more…)
