Holy By Tom Smith

This, is a thought as beautiful and scary, as watching the world through the window in a plane. Far below you it spreads out in all its beauty.   God who is Holy, is always present in your life on your best of days and on the worst. In pleasure and pain, sickness and health, in the sunlight of the day, in the darkness of the night   God loves us all, but for God to become a part of your life, you have to accept His son Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.   Jesus answered him,...

A Hope and A Future by Tom Smith

Do you believe that God has a plan for you? A hope and a future? You have prayed, believed and talked to God. Still, everything seems to be getting worse. Your hope begins to fade.

Each one of us is like Robinson Crusoe, alone on a deserted island. We are surrounded by the emerald waters of God’s Love. We gaze out across the open water that stretch out into...

Communion with God by Tom Smith

  Have you ever met someone that tells you the same thing over and over every time you see them? Are you looking forward to hearing the same story again? Probably not.   What about my prayers. Somehow the story Jesus told about the widow that came to the judge complaining about her situation until the judge finally could not take it anymore and saw to it that justice was done, has stuck on me.   Do I really need to tell God the same thing over and over? Does God need reminding? Is it possible that his memory...
