“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

PSALM 46:10

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 fear…

Passion

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 to…
