what encourages me


Let’s begin a week on a high note.  We have just come through a great weekend with lots of stuff that has encouraged me.  My wife and I went away for a night and had a great time relaxing and even doing a little shopping.  Church was great with several people taking steps toward God.  Got to have some excellent conversations about God’s grace in our lives.  Another are the conversations with some people struggling who are seeking God for breakthrough.

So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.

It is in the middle of strain that God moves ahead of us.  He is our strength and is our guide.  And I must confess that what will keep me connected to God is often the things I listen to on the radio or on my playlist.

This post is taking a strange turn because I am simply going to share with you want is on my playlist and what I am listening to as of late.  Thanks for asking “what’s on my playlist?  (Even if you didn’t ask)
