Pastor Jacob shares his and his family’s testimony through the miraculous journey of the birth of their son, Urias.

Mind renewal is a journey. Everyone starts in different places and ways, but the concepts are the same. Start from where you are at right now. Remember, what you think about comes about. As you think, so you are. To renew your mind, you need to change your mind. Change does not mean wrong, it means different. Renewing your mind is bigger than right and wrong, good and bad, it’s about God and His ways, His word and aligning ourselves to mirror Him. What are you mirroring right now?
We choose to hear (Ask, Seek, Knock), he that has an ear to hear, let him hear. Paying attention to the truth (seed) making sure it is accepted not rejected. The Word (seed) will change us and our lives if we choose to hear, and understand, The Word and accept, and embrace, it as the final authority.
