If You Don’t Move The Mountain, It Won’t Move

Move the mountain

I continually hear the theme about God moving mountains for people in music. The only problem is the Bible never talks about God moving mountains for us. It talks about us moving them.

A Good Plan or God’s Plan

A Good plan or God's Plan

Years ago when I first got saved, I attended a small church of less than 100. We didn’t have a worship band. In fact, all we had was a CD player and a bunch of CDs for our worship. I had been born again for probably less than a year when the youth pastor gave […]
