For the scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden. (Romans 9:17,18 NIV) Intrigued This scripture has always intrigued me. Bottom line…God is Sovereign. He is Alpha and Omega, He is beginning and the end. God operates based on mercy, not on our desire or effort. Yes, when we conform our hearts to His, we’re apt to receive […]
But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every evil practice. (James 3:14-16 ESV) Monday! Motivating Monday! Take deep breath and breathe.

Corruption is being revealed in democrats, established republicans, and media. Wikileaks was once loved by democrats, unbeknown to them Julian Assange and associates […]
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you, he will never let the righteous fall. (Psalm 55:22 NIV) Monday! Motivating Monday! What is great about free will, we have a choice. What is bad about free will…making the wrong choice. Is there right or wrong? Yes. Does there have to be a wrong side to life? Yes. If we care about what happens to us at the point of death, we’ll want to be right. Norm… Where society has trouble with this and many church members have failed, individuals choosing sin to the point it becomes their […]
Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them. (Jeremiah 1:17 NIV) Clean Slates I made a remark on a pro-HRC post, “Time will tell…last 8 years have proved true.” I was asked, “The last 8 years prove what true?” Before answering this, please know I was led to pray for God to create a clean heart in me.

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
