My eyes are always on the LORD, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.
The wise vigilantly watch the Lord instead of worrying about their enemies. Seek first His kingdom and God’s kingdom will watch over you.
~ Pastor Bob
You’ll Get Through This
In You’ll Get Through This, pastor and New York Times best-selling author, Max Lucado offers sweet assurance. “Deliverance is to the Bible what jazz music is to Mardi Gras: bold, brassy, and everywhere.” Max reminds readers God doesn’t promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. It wasn’t for Joseph–tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed–but his Old Testament story is in the Bible for this reason: to teach us to trust God to trump evil.
With the compassion of a pastor, the heart of a storyteller, and the joy of one who has seen what God can do, Max explores the story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good.

To have courage to move forward and pursue what God calls us to do each of us needs a good dose of Integrity—more than simple honesty, it’s the key to success. A person with integrity has the ability to pull everything together, to make it all happen no matter how challenging the circumstances. Drawing on experiences from his work, Dr. Henry Cloud, a clinical psychologist, leadership coach, corporate consultant and nationally syndicated radio host, shows how our character can keep us from achieving all we want to (or could) be.

In Integrity, Dr. Cloud explores the six qualities of character that define integrity, and how people with integrity: Are able to connect with others and build trust, are oriented toward reality, finish well, embrace the negative, are oriented toward increase, have an understanding of the transcendent.
Integrity is not something that you either have or don’t, but instead is an exciting growth path that all of us can engage in and enjoy.
