Where are your roots?

Addiction. What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “addiction?” Is it drugs? For most people it is. Maybe after you’ve read my story you’ll have an altered mindset about it. Addiction is “repeated involvement with a substance or activity.” An activity addiction includes things such as gambling, sex, internet, pornography, and shopping. Even working can be an addiction. Some of these can seem harmless or even positive. But in fact, they run at the background of our life constantly and cost us psychologically. What’s promising is that once we see how it works, we stand a chance to overcome it. Anything that has complete control over you IS an addiction. We have three viable...

He is the Servant

“but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.” -Philippians 2:7 At my church, every year, we do something called You Matter Week.

He is the Advocate

Have you ever had someone accuse you of something that you didn't do? I have and I could remember the feeling of helplessness and anger all at once. But I also remember the moments when someone dear in my life stood up for me. They knew I was innocent and they had my back through it all. I'm sure we have all experienced that at least once in our life (if not a lot more). This brings me to 1 John 2:1- My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. An advocate is someone who pleads for or in...
