Does God REALLY care?


Good morning!

What a beautiful day here in Pasadena. A time to remember how much God loves us and is helping us. Sometimes life gets really hard and its difficult to believe this. That's where having real faith comes in. Developing trust in God and dependance on His help are the next steps after doing all you can with our limited resources. To be able to stand strong in God, you need two things:

1) A real living relationship with God

2) A solid foundation understanding who God is through the Bible

HAVE AN AWESOME DAY growing closer to HIM!

Notice how the foLlowing verse says to be 'like minded.' If you could give someone a boxed up defintion of practically living for God, this would come very close:
Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. 
1 Peter 3:8-12

Wisdom from the Past for Business Today...


In Proverbs it says the wise woman "...considers a field and buys it." Proverbs 31:16 This verse really helped me. I've been inspecting so many business the last few months and have looked into them and 'kicked the tires', so to speak. It seems so many online business are just out to try and gouge you for money with little return. But God is all about giving and says that when we 'seek His kingdom first, all these [other things] will be given to us also."* So God wants us to be concerned about helping people and He will take care of helping us. Along with this He has given us the principle to buy carefully when looking to make a monetary return.

Awake to Hope!


This verse stood out to me today and gave me encouragement. I feel like God is in control of all the things that seem like I have little control over:

"I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth." Psalm 121

A Day Without Worry


Worry is really not trusting God. It is a way for the devil to get us off the road of having Gods peace and doing the right things, to taking the wrong actions without Gods help. Something to think about (especially talking to myself!).

Great verse for today: "present your requests to God and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." Have a day without worry (I'm speaking to myself too!)

Beautiful Morning!


Thankful to God to wake up this morning to such a beautiful sunny day. Great verse: "Who redeems your life from the pit, and crowns you with love and compassion." Psalm 103:34

What a cool sand castle!!! Makes me want to go to the beach - but blah, have to work! lol! Still, just like the sandcastle today has great potential! :-)
