Are You Satisfied with Jesus?

Are You Satisfied with Jesus?

| Written by Andrew Wommack | What would it take for you to be satisfied in life? Is Jesus enough? In John 14:6–8 (NLT), Jesus tells His disciples, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father, except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!” Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.”  Philip wanted Jesus to show them the Father, but Jesus said you already see Him. Who was right: Jesus or Philip? Of course, Jesus was right. Philip missed it when he said, Show us the Father, and then we’ll be satisfied. Philip was saying, I’m not satisfied with you, Jesus.  The problem wasn’t with Jesus. Jesus was God manifest in the flesh (1 Tim. 3:16), and He was perfect. The problem was that Philip only knew Jesus after the flesh. In...

Why and Where are People Moving to Florida During the Pandemic?

Why and Where are People Moving to Florida During the Pandemic?

Have you noticed any new construction in your Florida city, town or neighborhood? Most people have! Building cranes and new construction sites seem to be everywhere in the state. If you have the feeling that Florida is a “growth zone,” you are dead right. In the 2020 Census, Florida passed New York as the nation’s 3 rd largest state. The pandemic years of 2020 and 2021 have done nothing to slow Florida’s growth; in fact, that trend has accelerated. Other states looked on with envy as the population influx into the Sunshine State continued. The current growth estimate (December 2021) tells us that an average of 1,100 new people move into Florida each day. Over the next year, Florida will add almost the equivalent of a new Seminole County. This would be impressive under any circumstance, but it is especially so given the fact that total U.S. growth is the slowest since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Why does Florida continue to attract so many new people? Some of the...

Strength Training for Seniors

Strength Training for Seniors

Good nutrition, proper rest and medical care are all recognized as important elements of senior health. Social media and marketing professionals do an outstanding job of targeting seniors with information (and misinformation) about food, drugs, Medicare plans, and sleep aids. There is another essential element for maintaining good senior health that is not heavily advertised. Regular physical exercise is a key to maintaining seniors’ good health. Participating in regular strengthening exercise promotes emotional and mental health as well as physical wellbeing. It can be of benefit in managing medical conditions often seen in seniors including arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease and back pain. Beyond all of that, strength training will make daily living a far more enjoyable experience. Climbing stairs, carrying groceries, or simply rising from a chair unaided are tasks that younger people do without a thought. As we age, these simple abilities can become more and more of a challenge, but regular strength exercises can keep seniors independent, mobile and healthy. It is a common misconception that “bodybuilding” or muscle-building exercises are exclusively...
