This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. (Joshua 1:8 ESV) Forward Friday! Happy to be moving forward, except sad to see baseball season over. The World Series was intense and came down to giving Houston more to celebrate. What are the chances of seeing so much good come out of Harvey, to have Astros be World […]

Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgement on disputable matters. (Romans 14:1NIV) Disputes Motivating Monday! Topic on disputes seem daunting for Monday. Nothing like opening a can of worms to catch a fish, keeping one from hunger. When disputes are allowed to linger, we begin depleting peace within. The problem is not disputes, the problem is how we handle. For God’s people, The Church, this is a powerhouse scripture to understand and apply to daily life. Faith In today’s times, weakness in anything is not acceptable or willing to be accepted. When testing faith, levels are presented in […]
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. (Matthew 11: 28-30 ESV) Forward Friday! As with many, our thoughts have shifted to Irma and words associated with this storm. Words like beast, nuclear, and worst than Andrew- the governor stated. Andrew was a category 5, most destructive to strike America. There’s now Jose and Katia active as […]
The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. (Acts 17:30 ESV) Happy Labor Day! Motivating Monday! Biggest lesson I saw watching A&M/UCLA’s football game last night…hesitancy will lose a game. I was not raised around football, it was all basketball in Kentucky. My high school did not have football and our children’s high school does not have football, even though football is big in our public schools. Last year was my very first watched football game between A&M and UT. My point- hesitancy can be a killer for many things in our lives. […]
The steps of a man are established by the Lord, And he delights in his way. (Psalm 37:23 ESV) Monday! Motivating Monday! School will start in our area later this week. Our two children will begin a week later. Thankfully, we’ll have our oldest home a few days before he heads back for fall semester. He has been working hard with an internship and taking eight hours this summer. I hope one thing I’ll be remembered for is loving to be a mom. Yet, I am “that” mom. My oldest did not necessarily like it as a youngster and most […]
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. (Ephesians 6:13 ESV) Moving Forward! Forward Friday! Many are moving right into the new school year. Wow! I was shocked to see kiddos heading back to school this week. May our Lord, Jesus Christ protect all schools and know that He walks in with every believer. Jesus is in public schools as He is in private schools. Only difference, individuals represent Jesus in public school, the overall ruling body of private Christian schools is […]
This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. (1 John 1:5,6 ESV) Light Forward Friday! Hearing from individuals with first hand knowledge is trustworthy. Straight from Jesus, we know God is light and no darkness can be found in Him. One key principle/foundational truth- to be a Christian, we believe God is light. He is truth. The devil is darkness and no […]
Finally, be strong in the Lord and his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. (Ephesians 6:10,11 NIV) Armors Armors are weakening and even falling off, leaving many open for the devil’s schemes. I’ve had a strong nudge this week to encourage those overwhelmed with pressure, making decisions to away from God. When God’s name is used- I am speaking of the one- and only true God. The Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, working together unified. What a beautiful picture painted for us, gift of unity. […]
How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! (Hebrews 9:14 NIV) Happy Independence Day! Motivating Monday! Happy Independence Day to you! Hard to believe we are into July and the 4th will be tomorrow. What’s hard to fathom, our recent President of the United States spoke in Indonesia, warns Americans against too much patriotism. There is something seriously wrong with this headline. Do not be deceived, there is a key group trying to […]
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 ESV) Truth Ignorance is simply a lack of knowledge. As individuals move away from church and knowledge of Jesus, more ignorant one becomes. As these numbers multiply…so does ignorance in our cultures. They can be the most decorated scholar and still be ignorant in Biblical truth. Eternity is not based on IQ tests, certificates hanging on the wall or the sharpest restored vehicle, worth millions. With the underlying government financing riots and creating ways […]

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
