Prayer for True Joy

Oh Lord, help us to feel true joy today in spite of our deepest troubles.  

No more waiting for calamity around the corner! Lord, today help us to expect the best knowing You are with us and You are protecting us.

For Your word says, "I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.  No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice.  My body rests in safety." -Psalm 16:8-9

-In Jesus' name, Amen.

Walking Together Towards Jesus

Inside scoop for you on tonight's Dancing With the Stars.  

You might be surprised to hear who Candace Cameron Bure chose as her icon to appear with her on Dancing with the Stars tonight!  

It's Christian Author and Speaker, Angela Thomas! She has written many books including "Do You Think I’m Beautiful?" and "When Wallflowers Dance". 

I adored how Angela said she responded to the producer's questions on why she felt that Candace calls her an icon.  Her answer is something we should all strive toward in our relationships.  

"We both know I am not her icon.  Jesus is her icon and I am just walking beside Candace toward Jesus." 

Don’t we all need a friend like that? 

If you have a friend that is walking beside you keeping you focused on Jesus, cherish that friend and get on your knees and thank God.  

If you do not have that friend, it's time get down on your knees and pray for God to bring you one! I'm convinced it's the key to navigating life's challenges.  

Do you have a friend like that?
