Hardships and Struggles: “Was It A Lack Of Faith?”

King David in Prayer -- Wikipedia

Was It a Lack of Faith? If you are presently experiencing hardship and difficulty, I beg you to realize that you are not alone. The struggles, pain, and hardship that you face in life are not the result of a lack of faith as some might teach.


Even though King David was described as a man after God’s own heart and he faced many challenges. Our hope does not rest in what we see. It does not rest in our talents and abilities. Our hope must rest in Christ Jesus.

Elliott Powell Music Ministries: “Songs of Ascent” EP Release

Songs of Ascent by Elliott Powell

Cee Harmon‘s insight: When I listened to Elliott Powell’s Songs of Ascent album for the first time, three words came to mind: anointed, comforting, and powerful.  His music is boundless and has in it the potential to attract people from all walks of life to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

See on:


The Songs of Ascent EP is slated for release on February 11, 2014 and will be available at all major online retailers.  Elliott Powell is a Presbyterian Pastor and Christian recording artist that uses music as a platform to share the Gospel.  He began his music career in the Hollywood, California entertainment industry.  After achieving a measure of success,  he felt that God was calling him to use his abilities in music in a new way.

Powell served faithfully for 10 years, as an ordained minister in church settings, before turning his attention to a ministry dedicated to proclaiming the message of Christ through the ministry of music.  He formed Elliott Powell Ministries in 2013 to move forward with the vision that God gave him.

Woman From PA Writes Book About the Truth of God

PA woman writes book about the truth of God. Herald-Mail Media:
Without a clear concept of God, one’s view and interpretation of the world will falter. …

Cee Harmon‘s insight:

Eugenia Roche of Mercersburg, Pennsylvania (USA),was led to write “Equipped to Build a Godly Generation” to help strengthen parents, church leaders, children, youth workers and mentors to effectively  communicate and God’s attributes to those around them.  It is also an easy-to-use reference tool for people seeking answers about the one Christians refer to as the one, true God.
