On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. (John 20:19, 20 NIV) Forward Friday! TGIF! Wondrous harmony can be heard from many- how thankful we are for Friday. Summer breaks are over for most, others are nearing end. I do not want this Friday’s blog to be any regular Friday…I want us […]
“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:23, 24 NIV) Motivating Monday! The Samaritan woman could recognize Jesus as an important religious leader. Though, Jesus was clear how the Samaritans worshiped what they did not know. His disciples where surprised he was talking to a woman. The disciples thought he must be hungry, yet when Jesus told them He has food- […]

When applying Scripture to daily life and specific situations, God’s power is released like a protective covering. If you could have been in my vehicle any of the three close calls this summer, you can attest to how God protected me, […]
We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eye witnesses of his majesty. (2 Peter 1:16 NIV) Forward Friday! Today my youngest child turns 16! As packed as today will become celebrating- I can assure we were eye witnesses of God’s majesty during my pregnancy with her. Dating back to November 2002, my lowest spinal disc blew- I was 32 years old. We had a 5 year old and an eight and half month old, and life was about to become very interesting. Personal […]
For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord. (Jude 4, NIV) Motivating Monday! As today’s Scripture was appointed, my next step the devil tried to block. My password was not working. I attempted several times. I knew today’s blog must be written, I began to rebuke the devil and prayed. My next try, my password worked. The book of Jude is only one chapter. I encouraged 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
