“Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a little oil.” (2 Kings 4:2b NIV) Hearts Matter! Hearts matter and we each have one. Anyone or someone we know feeling hopeless? In midst of societal confusion, seems an endless list of needs. For me, I am most concerned for people deceived- how they became deceived, and how to free them from deception. We are in the lowest unemployment in years, yet, as cycles go…brick and mortar stores are closing opting for internet sales. Wal-Mart and other grocery stores are removing cashiers for self-check outs. Serious health issues need […]
I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength…(Galatians 1:18, 19 NIV) Motivating Monday! Congratulations to all graduates! Amazing time of year seeing our next level of citizens branching into the world. A newfound sense of independence no matter how close or far graduates decide. My hope and desire for each; they’ve been gifted with […]
Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting! (Psalm 139:23, 24 ESV) Forward Friday! Basic 101- The heart is most deceitful above all things and beyond cure- who can understand it? Jeremiah 17:9 is clarified further in verse 10: “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.” In order to move forward, we stop and search our hearts. Are we ready to […]
Fret not yourself because of evil doers; be not envious of wrongdoers! For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. (Psalm 37:1-3 ESV) Good News! A time to search hearts, and be reminded of God’s good news! We can become heavy laden when circumstances do not align like with think they should. We see ourselves or our children’s hard work, train hard and then when by world standards, disappointment fills our hearts. What I have been reminded this week, I […]
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. (Psalm 127:3 ESV) Motivating Monday! God’s ways are beautiful and perfect. A life developing God’s purpose with gifts and talents only He can provide- not the world’s contaminated bulldozing occurring in our midst. His Word is same today, yesterday, and forever more. Aligning with Jesus is far more rewarding than any individual ideology offering. One reward aligns with God’s provision over our lives who He calls to parent- biological, adoption, or mentoring through Christ’s love. Reward It’s amazing to be back with each of you! […]

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
