But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self- control; against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22, 23 ESV) Motivating Monday! Since I’ve back from seeing an epic snowfall in Southern Texas, and freezing since not listening to the Holy Spirit, cookies have been baked, seen my middle child off to a dance, and attended our school’s Christmas concert. My oldest son was gifted with beautiful vocals and thrilled to see my middle child w/his musical talents. We have a choral director who is wonderful identifying talent in her students and […]
He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” (Luke 11:28 NIV) Forward Friday! Jesus always directed people to the Word of God. John 1:1, Jesus is the Word. He knows the Word and how effective when applied to daily life. If we look at examples He set, we too will keep God’s Word ready to use for every situation encountered. Those who hear the Word of God and obey are blessed. Woe to us who do not listen and obey… Tap…Tap… Yesterday, I re-learned an age old lesson. This happens when we forget […]

For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.” (Luke 2:28-32 NIV) Heart to Heart, Today meet Simeon, a righteous and devout believer from Jerusalem. Through the Holy Spirit, Simeon knew he would not die until he saw the Lord’s Christ- baby Jesus. A promise unknown when would take place. Scripture does not necessarily tell […]
And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” Luke 18:6-8 NIV) Motivating Monday! Christmas season is in full swing, choirs singing and office parties happening. As I flipped to Luke looking for scripture coming to mind, Luke 18 caught my attention. Jesus starts this chapter by […]
…give and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you. (Luke 6:38 ESV) Forward Friday! I naturally can think…everyone thinks like me. A wise editor once told me, the reason I’ve been given my ways of thinking…through studying God’s Word, learning life lessons, while apply Biblical Truth…is to share and help others. One thing my husband and I had right from the beginning is tithing. Tithing is the first step in honoring God with our […]

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
