A zeal to do God's will

The lyrics from one of my favorite Mississippi Mass Choir songs, entitled "It Remains to Be Seen," say, "The safest place in the whole wide world is in the will of God. Trials come great and small just stay in the will of God. Come what may from day to day keep the faith and be still. It remains to be seen what God can do for the one who submits to His will."

'Double-mindedness' part of faith

Lent started recently and we're well on our way to the celebration of Easter, but there still are many Christians who struggle with faith issues in their lives. We live in an age of fast-track mentality, media frenzies and "hurried child syndrome." What do we find so attractive about this type of lifestyle, quick results and instant gratification? Is this truly the way we are meant to live, driven by habit and trendiness?

Give and it shall be given

Struggles with faith common this time of year

Last week, we observed Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of Lent in the Christian calendar. It occurs 46 days before Easter each year and derives its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of believers as a sign of repentance to God, according to www.stbarnabaschelsea.org. The ashes used to mark the sign of the cross on each worshipper's forehead commonly are gathered after the burning of the previous year's palm branches from Palm Sunday. Those receiving the sign of the cross are encouraged to wear it until it wears off as ...
