But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. (Matthew 6:33 ESV) Friday! Forward Friday! Have you ever tasted cotton candy grapes? I remember once my daughter pointed these out and even purchased, yet, I never tried. What refreshed my memory this week was the sermon I heard this past Sunday. Rev. Preston Greenwaldt, Pastor- A&M United Methodist Church in College Station, Texas gave simple, yet, most powerful sermon. Why choose a red or green grape when cotton candy is a choice? Do you want more? Seek Many times while […]
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. (Psalm 55:22 NIV) Freedom Mid-week and 2017 freedom celebrations around America are now in the books. I’m impressed with all the red, white, and blue I saw being worn yesterday. It’s possible, I am deep in the heart of Texas, yet, as my son speculated…patriotism is being renewed. Americans with foundations in Christ have rallied together in prayer and truth. The Lord cares and promises to sustain His righteous. Self-Righteous This may confuse any agnostic, atheist, or new Christian stopping by to […]
How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! (Hebrews 9:14 NIV) Happy Independence Day! Motivating Monday! Happy Independence Day to you! Hard to believe we are into July and the 4th will be tomorrow. What’s hard to fathom, our recent President of the United States spoke in Indonesia, warns Americans against too much patriotism. There is something seriously wrong with this headline. Do not be deceived, there is a key group trying to […]
If you put these things before the brothers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, being trained in the words of the faith and of the good doctrine that you have followed. Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness. (1 Timothy 4:6,7 ESV) Taking for Granted? Forward Friday! Moving forward with part two of 1 Timothy 4. Wednesday’s blog discussed how consciences determine if path taken conflicts with God’s Word. For Christians…now this has become tricky, not all people who consider themselves Christians, believe scripture applies to them. We are privileged in […]
Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared. (1 Timothy 4:1,2 ESV) Consciences In today’s scripture, let’s zero in on where the problem begins…consciences. Consciences are defined as an inner feeling or voice viewed as acting as a guide to the rightness or wrongness of one’s behavior. Where do these feelings come from? External reasons sway our feelings or internal conflict. Solve this problem by taking control of feelings/emotions, making a firm decision to […]

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
