Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. (Acts 9:1 NIV) Heartfelt Day Wednesdays are always a heartfelt day to write. I have never taken a break like I have for April. April seems to be a whirl of activity. David and I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary on April 2nd. I’ve always wanted to visit Italy, and set a goal to do so by our 25th. When I stated we had planned an action-packed week, this was an understatement. An experience of a lifetime. Rome was incredible with all historical factors. The fact this is […]
The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing. Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. (Psalm 34:10, 11 NIV) Forward Friday! We all know individuals who become flustered to understand Scripture. We either press in or allow discouragement to steal our opportunity to seek the Lord. This scripture alone shows reason why we want to seek Jesus Christ. The Trinity: God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit…all in one. Society has this backwards…lions in movies are shown as strength and weakness is justified and […]
Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:43, 44 ESV) Motivating Monday! When my children were smaller and even today, my comment if a lie is spoken, “When you lie, you align […]
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. But you, O God, will bring down the wicked into the pit of corruption; bloodthirsty and deceitful men will not live out half their years. But as for me, I trust in you. (Psalm 55:22, 23 NIV) Forward Friday! King David was a fierce warrior, dating back keeping watch over his flock. All who have been in Bible Study Fellowship this year, have been enlightened with King David’s life. He was not perfect, however, his dedication to God, with every repentance made, […]
Therefore, although in Christ I could be bold and order you to do what you ought to do, yet I appeal to you on the basis of love. I then, as Paul- an old man and now also a prisoner of Christ Jesus- I appeal to you for my son Onesimus, who became my son while I was in chains. (Philemon 8-10 NIV) Motivating Monday! Philemon’s pronunciation, tweaked my interest in refreshing my memory. This is a book in the NT, one chapter, very short. Who is Philemon? He was Paul’s dear brother and fellow worker. Is his name pronounced […]

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
