But as surely as God is faithful, our message to you is not “Yes” and “NO.” For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by me and Silas, and Timothy, was not “YES” and “NO,” but in him it has always been “Yes.” For no matter how may promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. (2 Corinthians 1:18-20) Promises How do we know God’s promises? We study God’s Word! God’s promises will be revealed to us in God’s perfect timing as long as we stay diligent studying God’s Word. Spiritual Journeys begin, and we […]
If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom will not stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. (Mark 3:24, 25 ESV) Motivating Monday! This is definitely a motivating day to channel our thoughts toward how divisive the devil can really be- he’s not playing to be nice. Although, slick and enticing as his taunts can be, luring us into troubled areas- he is deceptive. Why is Beth Moore placing herself in a divisive position? The Southern Baptist have their doctrine as every Church. Why do other Christians go against […]
And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times. O Lord, you will keep us safe and protect us from such people forever. The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men. (Psalm 12:6-8 NIV) A Melody… There’s within my heart a melody…Jesus whispers sweet and low: Fear not, I am with thee, peace, be still, in all of life’s ebb and flow. Wow! Amazing when asking Jesus how to encourage, this sweet song comes to mind. The title is…There’s Within My Heart a Melody. I […]
“I (Jesus) have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV) Motivating Monday! I cannot imagine too many other verses touching deep into our souls with fire- burning flames magnifying God’s power through The Holy Spirit living within. Yes, in this world we do have trouble. Jesus, for this very reason, sent to live in this world; presenting truth though parables to help His disciples understand. As we read through Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John…be sure to have […]
Just as it is written in the law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us, yet we have not sought the favor of the Lord our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to your truth. The Lord did not hesitate to bring the disaster upon us, for the Lord our God is righteous in everything he does, yet we have not obeyed him. (Daniel 9:13, 14 NIV) Faith Daniel proves we can keep our faith, avoid compromise and live with a nation disrespecting our beliefs. He spent decades in Babylon, after captured and dragged into […]

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
