But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?” “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. (John 4:32-34 NIV) Perfect Example Motivating Monday! Time to be motivated! A perfect example of Jesus’ thoughts higher than ours and his ways not our way. His disciples were thinking surface level. Thankfully, Jesus did not leave his disciples confused, He explained- as He will do with every individual willing to learn. Spiritual […]
Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved. (Psalm 55:22 ESV) Circumstances Forward Friday! How easy to place burdens on a hook and cast out and away to the Lord. This concept sounds easy, yet with most of us…concepts sound easy until time to make happen. I’m guilty- with my can do anything attitude, David often sheds reality. When it comes to circumstances weighing our hearts down, it’s hard to pick up and cast, often leaving individuals hopeless. Hopeless or Hopeful? With Christ, we are never hopeless. When […]
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13 ESV) Monday! Motivating Monday! Fatih, hope, and love…all three powerful entities to unify our maturity in Christ. I’ve mentioned a few times recently God’s love is counterfeited and defined as tolerance in world we live. I will show the difference in today’s blog. Love does win! Love Love is… Patient Kind Rejoices with Truth Bears all things Believes all things Hopes all things endures all things Love does not… Envy Boast Arrogant Rude Insist on its own way Irritable Resentful Rejoice […]
Finally, be strong in the Lord and his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. (Ephesians 6:10,11 NIV) Armors Armors are weakening and even falling off, leaving many open for the devil’s schemes. I’ve had a strong nudge this week to encourage those overwhelmed with pressure, making decisions to away from God. When God’s name is used- I am speaking of the one- and only true God. The Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, working together unified. What a beautiful picture painted for us, gift of unity. […]
So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good. (1 Peter 4:19 NIV) Monday! Motivating Monday! God calls various individuals to encourage. We can only encourage what we have overcome with knowledge gained from past experiences. If you were set to have a root canal, I will be no help. Unless knowing God’s Word to comfort during necessary times. My happy self came to an abrupt stop after seeking God’s will, aligning with God’s straight path…when the going gets tough, the tough get going. The only thing- be […]

Find yourself blessed to find one who will sharpen with iron. Though the words are sometimes harsh and/or hard to swallow know it is a blessing, as I have. Christ provides many words for us through the day, we have to be willing to see, hear and move into His will. Praising Him even in the storms of life.Kim Baker. Sikeston, MO
