Set Your Mind

Because of the times that we live in, I am often asked what Aglow’s stance is in the midst of what looks like the redefining of society. To know where we stand, you can read our Core Values.  Our stance will always align with Biblical values. Those values are fixed and cannot be redefined.

Our God who never changes, who is the same yesterday, today, and forever has forever fixed Himself to be the anchor in our lives. He is immovable and not tossed about by the whims of society.

Jump In! The Water is Fine

Beware of the thing of which you say – “Oh, that does not matter much.” The fact that it does not matter much to you may mean that it matters a very great deal to God.  Nothing is a light matter with a child of God.  Nothing in our lives is mere detail. God is in the midst of everything. We live to honor and bless Him.  If there is a place of doubt in your heart, stop Immediately, no matter what it is. Inquire of the Lord.  Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you any area that needs an adjustment. God wants you to be entirely His, and this means you have to watch, listen and respond…to keep yourself fit in the things of God.
