The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. (Proverbs 16:9 ESV) Motivating Monday! April 2, 2018- I have been married for 24 years. Over the weekend, the melody of Because He lives…all fear is gone, has permeated my thoughts. Jesus did rise again, seated at the right hand of God, interceding for mankind, including you and me. Have you ever felt desolate? Seeing no hope in a situation? Planning our own ways, man’s plans, without seeking God’s Will, allows for detours and never finding our way. Man’s Plans Surrendering self-ideologies, or man’s ways may cause […]
For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ. (Philippians 3:18-20 NIV) Perfect Timing The movie, I Can Only Imagine, came out in perfect timing. The example of redemption, God’s purpose prevailing in Bart. The knowledge given to Bart, knowing who to contact and keep […]
Therefore, as you received Jesus Christ the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in Thanksgiving. (Colossians 2:6, 7 ESV) Motivating Monday! Yesterday, our pastor’s sermon was one for the history books. He began discussion with a security blanket and how we all have items held tight for security before releasing to embrace healing or new God has for us. Let’s see…change was a big word he used. I encourage all to listen to full message found on Cape Lacroix Church’s website. Walk During worship, the […]
“I will teach you about the power of God; the ways of the Almighty I will not conceal. You have all seen this yourselves. Why then this meaningless talk?” (Job 27:11, 12 NIV) Forward Friday! Let’s move forward! Why leave room for any meaningless talk? Last week my 14 year old says, “Mom, you have to read Job 20!” Almost stunned, I replied, “I sure will!” Wow! My youngest taking upon herself to read Job, this momma’s heart was proud as if she performed a hat trick in her last soccer game. However, I am thankful to be brought back […]
Elisha said to the King of Israel, “What do we have to do with each other? Go to the prophets of your father and prophets of your mother.” Elisha said, “As surely as the Lord Almighty lives, whom I serve, if I did not have respect for the presence of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, I would not look at you or even notice you. But now bring me a harpist? (2 Kings 3:13a, 14 NIV) The Difference… Three Kings and one made the difference when matters depended on God’s intervention. The Old Testament is fascinating with history and stories that […]

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
