Life & Work
Applying the Word of God to your life and ministry is the key to success. But sometimes, it’s easy to get caught up in the hows and whys of applying God’s Word to any given situation. It isn’t meant to be difficult—it’s simple to see the power of God at work!
Single parent, God loves you! Do you know that? Are you secure in that today? If you need a mental and spiritual pick-me-up in the Word, take a moment to meditate on these scriptures from your heavenly Parent, and remember who you are, who He is and just how much He loves you:
Have you made a HUGE mistake? Have you fallen into sin or experienced a broken relationship with a loved one? Have you made choices in your life that lead you question whether God could ever love you again? These are big questions but there’s good news: God always has a plan.

Everyone has days when they need more joy to embrace the life God has given them. In fact, some of Paul’s final words of encouragement included the command, “Always be joyful” (1 Thessalonians 5:16). If you need to give your day a shot of joy, here are five ways to do it.
Now more than ever before, believers must pay attention to God’s instructions. We must take hold of the Word of God and refuse to let go—especially in difficult times. We must be like the writer of Psalm 119 who said: “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.
When trouble arises, the most natural thing to do is to place the blame for it on someone or something. Sadly, many Christians have been falsely accusing God of being the cause of their troubles.
