God has a plan – trust Him

God has a plan – trust Him

The Bible says, ‘The LORD will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right’ (Psalm 84:11 NLT). Sometimes we pray for a certain thing, believing it’s good for us. But God, who has a plan for your life, knows what would be ‘good’ and what wouldn’t be. Billy Graham’s

Trust in God’s goodness

Trust in God’s goodness

The Bible says, ‘When the people saw how long it was taking Moses to come…down the mountain, they gathered around Aaron. “Come on,” they said, “make us…gods who can lead us”’ (Exodus 32:1 NLT). Why did Israel make a golden calf? Because they wanted a god you can see. It’s ...

Trust Must Be Earned

Trust Must Be Earned

Here’s a magic bullet that teenagers like to use in order to manipulate their parents: ‘You don’t trust me!’. So we start backpedalling. ‘No, dear, it’s not that I don’t trust you being out with your friends or taking the car, it’s just that I…’ and then we run out of words.

Stop Trying to Control Everything (1)
