“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” (Luke 6: 37, 38 ESV) Test Interesting how individuals approach this blog…those with pure hearts, want to learn and those with impure, read to be judgmental. I want people to test the Spirit I write from…strictly from God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit. […]
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:20, 21 NIV) Motivating Monday! We must keep ourselves motivated when forces against us, would like for us to stop. When Monday is spoken- instantly, negative thoughts stir within individuals. I’ve always liked Mondays. Let today be the day, treasures within are identified.

Psalms 23 is overused in funerals. We need to grasp […]

And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment. (John 16:7, 8 ESV) Humility Discussing humbleness and humility this week, describes our President 41. President Bush is well remembered this week. His character and service was impeccable. I pray God is raising more young men and women with […]
But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6 ESV) Motivation Monday! December 3rd, and all decorated for Christmas. A friend posted, not decorated at all, and some may be in the middle…this is most unusual for me. I sat here with the thought… Dear Jesus, I want to be humble, without having to eat humble pie. I’ve had my share and not a desired taste. Have you ever considered drive-thru individuals form an opinion of you? I make daily stops at our local Panera, and yesterday the car […]
