Pain Transformed

Pain Transformed

by Danetta Kellar @DanettaKellar You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

In the Grave – But Not Dead

In the Grave – But Not Dead

While meditating and reflecting one day, I thought about things that most humans think about  – What happens when we die? Where do we go when we are deceased? Do we go to heaven? Do we go to paradise? Do we stay in the grave? The Apostle Paul says to be absent from the body […]

God Looking Down From Heaven

God Looking Down From Heaven

I love science. I can’t get enough science and space and all that shows us who God is. I’m in awe of the fact that God is the creator of the universe and that He’s there and here. I sometimes try and picture what its like for Him, up there in Heaven, wherever Heaven is, […]

What’s Heaven Like?

What’s Heaven Like?

One thing I’ve talked to a lot with my Christian friends is what heaven will be like. We’re told early on that: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1-3 But we’re curious. We know heaven will be awesome. We’ll be in the presence of the Lord and there will be no […]
