Journey On! 

"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,
neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God
hath prepared for them that love him"  (I Corinthians 2:9).


Trials to Triumphs: From Darkness to Glorious Light

DakotaSometimes we think our problems are too big, sometimes we think our sin is too great, but no matter what we think, the truth is that there is a God who is bigger than any struggle and any sin! 

What you get to hear is the testimony of a girl who is like so many others, except for one thing..... she surrendered her sin, and fully accepted the love of Jesus!

Be encouraged today as you hear of how your heavenly Father brought yet another one of His children into His glorious light » 

Life to Life: Talking to God

Sunset Talking to God means different things for each of us, but in every single case, we need to realize that God is a person, and not just any person. He is the Lover of our Soul, our very Best Friend, our Father, and the One who cares for our every need and trouble.

Here you will read the simple and VERY real conversation held by one getting to know the person of God!

There are a few things I really think we need to discuss here Lord…like my life, for instance. Why am I here anyway? It really doesn’t make sense…if you think about it…from my perspective. I mean, work is fine and all that, sometimes even great! But I still don’t get it. Why here, why now? My mere existence probably bothers more people here than I can even imagine......."

"Why?" . . . Read the rest of Cassie's thoughts and questions, and the very small ways in which she recognized God's voice. »

Crater at Petersburg"Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear" (I Peter 3:15).

Are you ready? Will you be prepared when an opportunity suddenly arises out of nowhere? Many times we miss incredible opportunities because we didn't taken full advantage of the time that God gave us while we were waiting.

Life-Changing Opportunities: Oak Brook College of Law.


"What am I going to do with my life? This may be a question going through your mind right now. It had been ringing in my head since before I was 12!

I wanted to do what God wanted me to do, but I let God know that there were a few things I’d never do, even if He asked me! Not surprisingly, for the next 5 years I didn’t hear a thing from God about what I should do.

Then, sitting at the 2005 Sacramento ATI Conference, “Total Surrender for Total Success,” I finally did what God had wanted me to do all along—surrender everything to Him. Walking out of that auditorium, I could feel God’s pleasure.  Then I just “happened” to walk right up to the Oak Brook College of Law booth. The person handed me some information. I said, “Thanks”, and kept on going . . .
