Everywhere – from east to west – praise the name of the Lord. Psalms 113:2

There is a lot of talk today about what unites and divides us as people. From families to the massive global community, we don’t like division, yet we experience it. We like unity and community. It is a gift that brings joy, delight, and well-being to everyone within its reach everywhere.

As a follower of Jesus Christ, the great unifier within families, communities, nations, and cultures is God. For decades I have experienced the truth of this through Warm Beach Camp Ministries. People gather from all walks of life to worship God, and He meets them right where they are at. In my limited world travels, I have also experienced the richest connections of community and unity by worshipping God. Where people gather in praise, there is usually better unity and community. It is beautiful.

Psalms 113 goes on to describe God in amazing ways:
• God is high above the nations (Verse 4).
• God’s glory is higher than the heavens (verse 4).
• No one can compare to God (Verse 5).
• God looks over heaven and earth (Verse 6).
• God lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump (Verse 7).
• God establishes those He lifts up among princes (Verse 8).
• God gives the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother (Verse 9).

God is everywhere.


I am grateful that God is everywhere. We need someone who is far greater than we are. We need someone whose glory is bigger than we can think or imagine. We long for someone to whom there is no comparison. We need someone who looks after us, who takes care of the poor and needy, and who establishes them in life among leaders and influencers. We need someone who brings life where it has not been possible to conceive it. This is God. He is everywhere.


Give praise to God. He is everywhere. Give praise to God. He brings us together.


Dear Father God,

Thank You for being everywhere. Thank You for taking care of us and bringing us together. There is no one else worthy of worship and praise. We praise and thank You.

In Jesus’s name, we pray,

Volunteers Are Integral to the Horsemanship Ministry

Imagine you are standing next to a horse, physically vulnerable, and mentally terrified. How will you get on? How will you get off? How will you sit in that saddle way off the ground? How will you go, stop, and most importantly, steer? With your mind racing and your body doubtful of this situation, you turn to the volunteer who is smiling at you and say, “Could you please help me?” The Warm Beach Horsemanship program is unique: we provide ...

Gone Forever

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” Revelation 21:4 NLT The Apostle John is writing down the vision from God about a time when everything is made new by God. God is back among us: I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will ...
