Daily Devotional

Do you even realize how much God Loves You! Yes YOU! Every single detail of your daily life is so very important to God, the one who placed the sun, moon, stars and universe in it's place ALSO cares deeply about whether you will get that job, if your children will ever listen to you, if your parents will stay together or separate, if you car gets fixed, if you have a home, if you will eat tonight, if that long lost friend will ever be in your life again...."EVERY" thing that is important to you IS important to God! Trails can be a distractions, BUT when you allow God To be God in the process of moving "Through" the trial, God Will not only restore all that you have lost along the way, but He will create in you all that you were meant to be in the first place, allowing you to fully step into the reason your were created.

Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. 1 Peter 5:7

“Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.” Proverbs 4:23 (NCV)

I knew they were there, but I tried to ignore them and deny their existence.

They controlled how I felt in the morning, and when I went to sleep. They would often cause my emotions to feel out of control, making me feel out of control, too. They would dictate how I reacted to situations or conversations. They often caused me to feel offended, angry or hurt, whether it was truly justified or not. They never ceased to remind me of my shortcomings and flaws, making me feel inferior and often without value, and they constantly tried to pull me down with discouragement or hopelessness, stealing my peace and joy.
Who are “they,” you ask?

My thoughts.You see, life had been unusually hard for many months due to a painful situation ...

Learning From Our Failures

By Shana Schutte

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

A few years ago when I was forty-six, I strapped on skis for the first time. And, last week I skied for the fourth time. Although I have improved, I still fell—a lot. I fell when I was getting off the ski lift. I fell when I was standing in the ski lift line and almost got pinned under the chair lift. (I know. It’s funny to me now, too.) I fell multiple times while I was attempting to ski on a new part of the mountain that was steeper than I was used to.

After we got home on our last day on the slopes, I was a little discouraged. My goal was not to fall down on the mo...

Quality of Life


Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. Proverbs 13:20

What does it mean to have quality of life? Good health? Harmony at home? A happy heart? Financial security? Freedom of speech and worship? A fulfilling career? Grateful and content children? A meaningful marriage? A life of significance? Peace with God? Probably some of these elements and more make up a life worth living—a quality life.

Moreover, the quality of our lives is determined by the quality of our relationships. Who we spend time with is who we become. If we spend time with those wise in their finances, and if we pay attention, we can become wise in our own finances. If we are intentional in our faith, we will worship ...

Our goal is to help them to become successful in every area of their life.Get Help: The programs of the Phoenix Dream Center are available to meet the needs of hurting and lost people by teaching them how to overcome life-controlling issues that range from homelessness, hunger, and lack of education to substance abuse and human trafficking.
