There are seasons in our Christian lives when we go through dry times. There are times when we are depressed, discouraged, disappointed or even have doubts in our faith in God. The Christian life is full of peaks and valleys, highs and lows.

Have you ever been on a short-term mission trip? If not, you should go. Seriously. Put it on your bucket list. Going to another country on a short-term mission trip is a life-changing experience. Actually, it will change your life, the person who goes.

Jonathan Howes

In Romans 8:31-39 the Apostle Paul instructs Christians that God is for us, and he wants what is best for our lives.  Through 5 rhetorical questions, the Apostle Paul reminds us of the incredible benefits of being on God’s team.

A few years ago some friends invited our family to go to Six Flags with them for the day. They had VIP passes, and said that all of our expenses would be covered. So, our family piled into our swagger wagon (a.k.a. minivan), and we followed their family to Six Flags.

I hear people say all the time, “God opened a door for me.” Or, “God closed a door for us.”  Does God really open and close doors to show us His will for our lives?
