Understanding: Full Riches, Treasure Found

Understanding: Full Riches, Treasure Found

  My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine sounding arguments. (Colossians 2:2-4 NIV) Justified?   I could have written this very same letter, however, Paul had great concern for Laodicea, as I do…America. The town of Colosse was located on a major trade route, receiving from […]

Deceiver: The Devil Plays Dirty- Be Watchful!

Deceiver: The Devil Plays Dirty- Be Watchful!

Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully. (2 John 7, 8 NIV) No! No! Distracted from Jesus’ teachings and running ahead is not good. 2 John is another quick read, reality check. At some point, this has happened to us all, except not all repent and return to Jesus’ teachings. When brothers and sisters dip into sin, The Bible directs […]

Deceptive Methods- Increase Societal Confusion

Deceptive Methods- Increase Societal Confusion

Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. (James 1:19, 20 ESV) Forward Friday! Many of us would love to move forward, beyond deceptive methods- increasing societal confusion. God’s Word is vital and approachable for every need we have. When listening to news updates, we want truth- not opinions. Thankfully, I listened to Senator Susan Collins speech and now I’ve listened to Kanye West’s soul pouring out with President Trump. To have false accusations against these individuals is […]

Fear: Satan’s Mojo, Avoid Being Deceived

Fear: Satan

For this reason I remind you to fan into the flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power and love and self-control. (2 Timothy 1:6-7 ESV) Motivating Monday! A quiet whisper in midst of societal confusion, keep eyes on me- Jesus. The day has arrived like walking a high wire or even a low beam where balance is key- keeping eyes looking ahead. God did not give us a spirit of fear. However, learning God’s Spirit, we explore what it […]

Promises…God’s Faithfulness Revealed

Promises...God

The righteous perish, and no one ponders it in his heart, devout men are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace, they find rest as they lie in death. (Isaiah 57:1, 2 NIV) Motivating Monday! With heavy hearts, thoughts and prayers are with survivors and family members of the Duck boating tragedy in Branson, MO. Also, a fire in San Marcus, TX began early morning with five individuals missing. The sermon we heard yesterday- made a valid point, we can be with Jesus […]

Call…Who? Jesus, He will Answer You…

Call...Who? Jesus, He will Answer You...

Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known. (Jeremiah 33:3 ESV) Motivating Monday!  Feeling motivated as I write, I must share the song surging God’s love and empowering me to want more- more out of this life. In order for more, we have to become centered for balance. Today’s photo is a prayer bench made by my middle child for an extension of the church we attend. Looks like a perfect place to find time with Jesus. I’m loving travel with our son’s baseball team, however does […]

World Problems…Take Heart, Jesus Overcame

World Problems...Take Heart, Jesus Overcame

“I 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 3:33 NIV) 2018 If satan cannot work through our President and current administration, he’s frantically seeking other paths to steal, kill, and destroy. One area has been the media, yet, even a few are seeing truth from time to time. Another area is attacking our youth. They have been heavy on my heart this entire school year. I hope 2018 is not based upon January’s foundation being laid. Yesterday, a […]

Politicians, Motives, and King David

Politicians, Motives, and King David

Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws. Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble. I wait for your salvation, O Lord, and follow your commands. I obey your statutes, for I love them greatly. I obey your precepts and your statutes, for all my ways are known to you. (Psalm 119:164-168 NIV) Motivating Monday! Lord, Congress is in a dead-lock, with so much good happening in our nation; increased jobs, lower unemployment, stock markets an all time high, military support back strong- world wide economic activity is through the […]

Vital Teaching: Be Sober- Minded, Watchful

Vital Teaching: Be Sober- Minded, Watchful

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. (1 Peter 5:8, 9 ESV) Forward Friday!  This has to be the most vital blog for adults and parents to understand, in order to teach their children. The devil is real. He is the same serpent tricking Eve into eating the forbidden fruit that he is today. He is constantly prowling like a roaring lion, looking to see who he can […]

Hope…Fruits Influencing World Changes

Hope...Fruits Influencing World Changes

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self- control; against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22, 23 ESV) Motivating Monday! Since I’ve back from seeing an epic snowfall in Southern Texas, and freezing since not listening to the Holy Spirit, cookies have been baked, seen my middle child off to a dance, and attended our school’s Christmas concert. My oldest son was gifted with beautiful vocals and thrilled to see my middle child w/his musical talents. We have a choral director who is wonderful identifying talent in her students and […]
