I love sharing the encouragement and truths that are found in the Holy Bible. Here I've shared some verses which have been helpful for me and highlight the love of Jesus and remind us of what Easter is all about. All you need to do is hover your mouse over each reference, or tap your screen with your finger (on mobile devices) and the verses will pop up. Obviously, this list is not exhaustive. If you have a verse you'd like to share, please do so in the comments!
Those of you who know me well have likely received a yes from me when providing me with two or more options. For example, "Would you like a slice of pumpkin pie or rhubarb pie?" Yes. "Do you want to have pizza or pasta for dinner?" Yes. Very much yes.
Prayer that works has nothing to do with being somebody special. There aren't any tricks, or magic words, or anything of that sort which increases the likelihood of our prayers being heard. What matters is that we actually pray and do so with faith that the One we are praying to can do something about it.
For a long time I found myself sitting somewhere between finding it difficult to set apart time to pray and feeling as if I couldn't be holy enough to be heard.
