  How often have we heard people say, “I need to pray for more patience?”  Perhaps, you have said it yourself.  Yet others will say, “You better not pray for patience,” as if the prayer may cause God to administer some sort of cosmic test.  Whether they pray for it or not,...

  Romans 2:4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance (KJV)? As counterintuitive as this may sound, loneliness is not necessarily a bad thing; in fact, it can be a very good thing....

  We were all created for relationship; not one of us was meant to be alone.  When sin entered into the world, relationships began to break down, and loneliness entered in as well. The very first relationship to break down was the one between God and man.  Every human being is born...
