But I can’t flee to the mountains; this disaster will overtake me, and I’ll die. Look, here is a town near enough to run to, and it is small. Let me flee to it- it is very small, isn’t it? Then my life will be spared. (Genesis 19:19b, 20 NIV) Flee Lot was told…flee to the mountains or he’d be swept away. Sodom and Gomorrah’s culture became sin filled, scripture states “Sin so grievous” to the point, God destroyed. He rained down burning sulfur, the cities were destroyed, including people and vegetation. God’s plan was to protect Lot and his […]
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me, put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. (Colossians 4:9 NIV) Motivating Monday! If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands. If your mad and you know- wait, don’t stomp your feet. Children may be viewing actions. It’s scary when our children behave in like mannerisms. It stops me in my tracks, and then relieved I’m trying my best to please God with all my actions, even though times I fail. Actions A relationship with Jesus cannot be all […]
Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. (John 15:13, 14 ESV) Forward Friday! If I was a betting person, and I am not…I would never gamble with my Spiritual journey. Many find items to worship, yet, fail to take Jesus serious. Yes, He has forgiven a thief on the cross- we’ll see him in Heaven. Yes, Jesus healed people with no faith…yet, would I wait to be one of them. Healing I will always want, thinking I am a lucky […]
In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.” (Hebrews 12:4-6 ESV) Fun? Discipline is not fun, it’s not fun giving and it’s not fun receiving. However, we need discipline to produce respectful behavior, and in […]
For all that is in the world- the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life- is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. (First John 2:16,17 ESV) Forward Friday! What a week! As I ponder God’s leading, I keep saying, “God, I really do want to be a nice person.” I can no longer withdraw, there are wonderful people around to become friends. Yet, life lessons and some day I will have […]
