Is once saved always saved?
Does it matter what I do even though I am righteous?

Are you righteous when you kept quiet when you should have spoken up; when you lied to your boss that you were held up in traffic but skipped to mention that you woke up late? What would you say to someone who knows you very well? Are you righteous?
From exciting changes like settling in a new place to dire shifts like divorce, protracted illness, or the death of a loved one; Uncertainty, they say is the only certainty. Is this really true for Christians?
Sometimes life throws you a curveball. That was what happened to Hef-zibah. This post is the story of her 18-days battle with pain, stress and uncertainty.
Hef-zibah’s story embodies the range of emotions, and thoughts we face when we go through pain and uncertainty. Hang on tight! You’ll see how God responds to faith and prayers.
The Christian is no better than a non-Christian, but he is infinitely better off. It is like two men on a plane, one of whom is wearing a parachute while the other is not.

Do you have regrets about wasted time and opportunities? I know I do. I can think of many occasions, I squandered my time on meaningless pursuits.
How would we live our lives if we realized that we carried in us pieces of answers to people’s problems?
What if we deliberately decide to notice people’s pain? What if our plans occasionally get interrupted? Would it mean something to us that stopping for the “one” might pull them, a step closer to the father’s love?
Why are many Christians broken and beaten up in life? Some are battered in the workplace, in relationships, in finances, in marriage, in career, and in many other areas.
