Our human experience
Our human experience is filled with barren places and crooked paths. However, the Scriptures indicate that God is in the exchange business. He is willing to take the fallen state of His children and give His beauty in exchange, which is restoration, peace of mind, love, truth and orderliness. In other words, He is offering His abundance and freedom for mankind’s lack and limitations.

Many people are dealing with life-dominating problems, and questioning God’s providence and care, wondering why they should have to undergo their challenges. However, prayer and meditation on Scripture will give some insight into God’s ways, while a change of attitudes and mindsets could be of added help towards a sense of balance and better living.

What will you find in “Lessons for Today?”
In this the First Series, you will find lessons that address various everyday challenges, and show how they can be overcome by using practical and biblical principles. For example, the following topics are addressed:
● breaking unwanted habits,
● developing assertiveness,
● stability, spiritual discipline,
● prosperity, discovering inner peace,
● reaching other goals

Our Mission
Our mission is to share with you a way of life that would enhance your everyday experience, therefore at the end of each lesson, five Question Helps and seven Scripture Helps are given. Both these Helps are reflected in the lesson, also Personal Reflections and Timeless Gems that are relevant to the lesson are given.

It is our hope that as you make use of these teachings and their various helps, the Spirit of God will bless you with insights and impartations from Himself, and we encourage you to journal these spiritual revelations.

A Quotation By Archbishop Romero

I found this great quote by Archbishop Romero, who was assassinated 30 years ago, and thought I would share it with you:

It helps, now and then, to step back and take a long view.
The kingdom is not only beyond our efforts, it is even beyond our vision.
We accomplish in our lifetime only a tiny fraction of the magnificent enterprise that is God's work.
Nothing we do is complete, which is a way of saying that the kingdom always lies beyond us.
No statement says all that could be said.
No prayer fully expresses our faith.
No confession brings perfection.
No pastoral visit brings wholeness.
No program accomplishes the church's mission.
No set of goals and objectives includes everything.
This is what we are about.
We plant the seeds that one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise.
We lay foundations that will need further development.
We provide yeast that produces far beyond our capabilities.
We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that.
This enables us to do something, and to do it very well.
It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord's grace to enter and do the rest.
We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker.
We are workers, not master builders; ministers, not messiahs.
We are prophets of a future not our own.
