I sent to him, saying, “No such things as you say have been done, for you are inventing them out of your own mind.” For they all wanted to frighten us…(Nehemiah 6:8, 9a ESV) Friends Fear tactics have been around since beginning of time, remembering the serpent, Adam, and Eve. Reason being, satan was once Lucifer, a high ranking arch angel along with Michael and Gabriel. Friends and associates like Michael and Gabriel are ones to connect with. They look out for our good, encouraging us in God’s purpose. My guess, Lucifer never discussed his plans with these two- like […]
The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. (Acts 17:30 ESV) Happy Labor Day! Motivating Monday! Biggest lesson I saw watching A&M/UCLA’s football game last night…hesitancy will lose a game. I was not raised around football, it was all basketball in Kentucky. My high school did not have football and our children’s high school does not have football, even though football is big in our public schools. Last year was my very first watched football game between A&M and UT. My point- hesitancy can be a killer for many things in our lives. […]
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. (Psalm 55:22 NIV) Moving Forward! Forward Friday! Moving forward is key to seeing light at the end of tunnels. Certainly many feel they’ve been through tunnels this past week. Harvey has even made his way to middle America. Who cares about minors when there’s majors to focus on. This is a lesson learned when we switched to my husband’s denomination. We can agree to disagree on minors, needing to agree on majors. This brings balance and harmony to any situation. Difference When […]
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 ESV) Service The proof is in the pudding! Interesting why this expression popped in my mind as I sit down to write. This idiom is defined as the end result, marking success or failure in one’s effort. I haven’t heard this expression in many years, Yet, when I think about this- proof is certainly in the pudding for all effort working in Houston/Texas coastal flooding, as well as Oregon and Montana fires. On smaller efforts, a church our oldest has been attending in College Station, held an international […]
“…that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Matthew 5: 45 NIV) Monday! Motivating Monday! A good word for enduring trials- noting this includes everyone. As rain continues to pour on Houston areas, the verse it rains on the righteous and unrighteous came to mind. We have been traveling to Houston/Galveston areas over the last year and half. I have always felt God’s sweet Spirit with every interaction. When stopping at convenient stores, individuals in the airport, […]

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
