    FirstFruits~What Are You Pursuing?

    Hello lovely readers and followers! Welcome to Part 2 of the FirstFruits series, where we explore the concepts of James 1. What runs your life? That is the question James asks his fellow believers in verse 11. For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also will fade away in his pursuits (James 1:11 NKJV). A lot of people think that James is condemning all rich people, and that it is evil to have money.

    Believe Again

    A Guest Post by Dainty M.  It’s absolutely exhausting and distressing to believe something will happen and it doesn’t. Or to believe someone wouldn’t do something and they do. When unpleasant things happen and disappointments lace our days, it’s really hard to believe in anything. Some people have stopped believing in love because their experience with it left them heartbroken. Some don’t believe in God because they felt disappointed by Him when bad things happened. I’ve trusted and believed something will happen this year but hey, the 8th month is about to roll around, when will it happen? I’ve drowned in despair and to be honest, believing again is much…

    For My Grandma~A Guest Post by Dainty M

    Hello lovely readers and followers! Sorry I’ve been missing these last couple of weeks. My grandma fell and got really sick. She passed away last week, and it has been very difficult.
