Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

Fear Not

Dave Canovas The world teaches you to fear. The Holy Spirit whispers in your ear and says otherwise; to fear not. Being trapped in fear and anxiety is no joke and I feel like the world we now live in is not helping alleviate our state of fear. The world makes us obsess and…

Dave Canovas Just how did you do it? How did you not flinch when it was too painful? When you fell while carrying the weight of the world, how did you rise up again? How far ahead did you see when your present was too agonizing? How far back did you have to look…

Peace be with you.

Dave Canovas I joined FB just few months ago. I refused to have one, most of my entire adult life. I thought it was rife with negativity and I thought there would be triggers there for me. Not good for my mental wellbeing but somehow thanks to the “snooze” option my wife taught me.…

What could we learn from Job of Uz?

Life is just full of experiences that could fill a person with so much suffering. Sickness. Poverty. Death. Depression. We all go through suffering at some point in our lives and we all deal with it differently. What could be a slight scratch for one could be an anguish for another. It is suffering…
