David’s appearance was as a shepherd David’s appearance was as a servant David’s appearance was selfish David’s appearance was senseless 1 Samuel 171 Samuel 16:1-7 But God didn’t look at his appearance. God looked on David’s heart!
God used Judah’s bad heart for good. (Gen. 37:26) God used an unrighteous act to transform Judah’s heart. (Gen. 38:26) Judah reveals his heart when he offers his life to save two.

Genesis 12:1-3 Genesis 21:6-7 Genesis 22:1-14 Romans 8:28

I just spent several minutes on Facebook (I admit it) and saw several people make comments about the Judge and whether or not he…
by Sara Blasko I have a goofy sense of humor. Like seriously goofy. Some of the things in life that I find hilarious are when my GPS tells me “you have arrived”. I always smile and say “thank you!” like I have accomplished some great milestone in life. Driving around in northern Michigan in the summer you can’t help but notice all of the road construction. It is a blessing and a curse. We need the roads to be repaired,…
By David Acker, Youth Minister “I don’t need to do that.” My heart has said at times. I shake my head to rattle out memories at times. I go for a walk in the woods, and try to have a squawk of a hawk or the crashing waves of the ocean drown out my thoughts but quiet pervades this me. I am having another innate struggle with God.
