Jesus Manifested His Glory

Get Your Eyes On Jesus

When I hear that old hymn Rock of Ages, I hear it in my mind being sung in my father’s baritone. He sings: Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee; Let the water and the blood, From Thy wounded side which flowed, Be of sin the double cure; Save from...

How To Start & Keep Your Habits

How To Start & Keep Your Habits

Okay, but how do I start good daily habits? How do we make good habits? There’s not a one-size equation for making and breaking habits, but the most important variables are humility, honesty, and and asking for help. You’ll need humility to admit you can’t solve...
