Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (1 John 2:15 ESV) Friday! Forward Friday! Every time, I think of Onward Christian Soldier. As we move into the weekend, I trust the word God brings forth will help us move forward. Things of this world are not to be loved. God does want us to live an abundant life and I believe God’s Word about tithing. However, guarding mind and heart helps avoid pitfalls of loving the world. Things Chapter two continues defining […]
He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God’s sight.”(Luke 16:15 NIV) Tugged Have you ever felt tugged between two components? My feeling yesterday was tugged between two competitors- satan trying to bring me down and God trying to lift me up. I want to be like King David crying out and then I am amazed with exciting moments of the day. The heaviness of our heart, The Holy Spirit working extra to comfort, to council, to speak […]
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3 ESV) Coffee! Motivating Monday!

This is not my general nature, usually I do attempt to spread a […]
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak and he will declare to you the things that are to come. (John 16: 13 ESV) Friday! Forward Friday! Many are happy for cooler weather and excitement of Friday night football. I am really excited in midst of all societal confusion, we have a straight path to truth. When the Spirit of truth comes…dear friends, He came! There’s no hotline to call- sorry no 1-800-HSpirit. We call on the name, […]
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1 ESV) Failure Attitudes seem to be carrying over in my thoughts. The attitude I dealt with yesterday was my own feeling of failure. As I ponder this failure feeling, one I’ve been confident to avoid thinking- is a feeling many experience. It’s like we’ve been given this most amazing gift, yet, look at it from afar…stumped. We see clearly through gift, understanding contents inside. What will it take to make a giant leap of faith, to gain confidence in owning the gift? Leaps […]

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
