Thinking with a Renewed Mind

Lately, I have been meditating on Philippians 4:8 – “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” (ESV).

Heaven on Earth

Allow me to start by making this disclaimer, I do not think that I am anywhere near an expert on this subject. My thoughts are based on teachings, self-study, hours of discussion, and lots of prayer. Still, I do not believe I have even begun to crack open all that Heaven on Earth could be. […]
