WHEN WE CAN’T FIND HOPE

This post is a contribution by a B4Ter working in the Arab world. Look and see, there is no one at my right hand; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life (Psalm 142:4). David went through a number of very difficult times in his life. We...

LABOR DAY IS EVERY DAY!

This post was contributed by a worker in North Africa. It’s Labor Day today, at least in the USA. In essence, it is a holiday or day of festivities, held in honor of working people.  Ironically, we celebrate “work” by taking a break from work! Whether employed in a...

THANK YOU GOD FOR CHERYL

You know, whoever said, “timing is everything” was right on. Chuck Noland (played by Tom Hanks), in the movie “Cast-Away” understood that. He thought he had his life planned out perfectly, “no worries,” great job, giving his girl an engagement ring … that was just...
