God cares about my workouts!

God truly does want to be involved in all of the details of our lives. He cares about everything that concerns us. I didn’t work out today, but God did offer me some much-needed encouragement and guidance. I was cleaning up my son’s room when I saw an unflattering view of my upper arms in the […]

In Isaiah Chapter 46, verses 3-7, God the Father says,”Listen to Me, O house of Jacob, all you who remain of the house of Israel, you whom I have upheld since you were conceived, and have carried since your birth. Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who […]
