For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are- yet, was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:15, 16 NIV) Confidence The key word today is confidence. The difference between falling into vaping, drugs, alcohol is confidence. People who do these may carry lots of arrogance and pride- all a false sense of confidence. […]
Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that he will reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. (Galatians 6:7, 8 ESV) Forward Friday! Every college degree begins with 101 classes. A basic understanding of facts necessary for higher levels. True- not all individuals desire higher level learning, same for Christians. We either believe in Jesus or not- this does not change God. Higher level learning about God avoids being deceived. He […]

“Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toll you will eat of it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return. (Genesis 3:17b-19 NIV) Motivating Monday! The excitement is in Cape Girardeau, Missouri! President Trump, Sean Hannity, Lee Greenwood, and Rush Limbaugh will be in town for tonight’s rally- vital […]
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts…(1 Corinthians 13:13- 14:1a) Forward Friday! I never realize God’s pick for scripture till I sit down to write. There can be experiences remembered, lessons learned, or what crosses my path during the day. For instance, while waiting at a red light, and seems like yesterday was a red light day. I finally admitted…Ok! God, I did not spend adequate time in prayer. God and I have lots of conversations over red lights. There before […]

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
