God is Better than Google

Did you know there are 11.944 billion Google searches performed every month? Just think about that for a second. In that second that just passed there were 4,545 searches…and each second that passes…it doesn’t stop…and it’s growing!! We ask Google every question you can imagine. And so many more that we can’t imagine. From the good (new and expecting parents’ searches increase by 2.7%!) to the questionable (Ever looked at the auto-complete suggestions…who’s searching for THAT??), people are unafraid of […]

You never know what God is going to do next… I […]

Very Nice Verses

I was writing a song with a friend recently and we started talking about beautiful Bible verses.  Today, as my recommendation post, I thought I’d give you a few of my favorites.  These are meaningful for life as well as beautiful language — kind of how I’d like my songs to be — that’s a tall order to live up to! Romans 11:29 …for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable. Proverbs 13:12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a […]
