Cast Your Cares: The Lord Will Sustain

Cast Your Cares: The Lord Will Sustain

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 days. But as for me, I trust in you. (Psalm 55:22, 23 NIV) Forward Friday! If anyone knew more than President Trump about enemies chasing him, King David understood. President Trump is attacked from every angle…enemies trying to find a crack to destroy. Every time, He has overcome with truth. I always say, “He is not my preacher, […]

Life: Choosing Real Over Artificial…Abundant Life!

Life: Choosing Real Over Artificial...Abundant Life!

Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I have told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from Heaven not to do my will but to do the will of Him who sent me.” (John 6:35-38 NIV) Motivating Monday! After a few years with an artificial Christmas tree, I […]

Being Saved, Biblical Truth Sown in Love

Being Saved, Biblical Truth Sown in Love

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved is the power of God. (1 Corinthians 1:18 NIV) Motivating Monday! I love Paul’s honesty, he was not in Corinth to baptize, he was there to preach the gospel. He was straight forward, understanding this was not done by human wisdom, only God’s power. Being saved is an uncommon term these days. Assuming, not politically correct within many churches as more foolishness takes over. It’s sad though, the ones perishing do not realize, rejecting God’s salvation. Being saved is asking […]

Time...Culture War Deepens and God

Then he(angel) told me(John), “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, because the time is near. Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong; let him who is vile continue to be vile; let him does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy.” “Behold, I(Jesus) am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” (Revelation 22:10-13 NIV) Forward […]

Anxious Thoughts Vs. God

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6,7 NIV) Motivating Monday! In midst of societal confusion, anxiety and depression have become close to epidemics. Hallmark move channel is a favorite for many and almost every commercial has to do with anxiety and depression treatment.

Fear Not! Scripture Lasts All Generations

Fear Not! Scripture Lasts All Generations

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10) Forward Friday! Thankful God informs through Scripture- His Word is for all generations. God is not surprised by what America is experiencing, it’s not His first rodeo. When sin increases, and seems to have exploded with many churches justifying sin, America is in trouble. Fear struck like a wave pounding my heart last night- the reality of how close our freedoms are slipping. Be Informed Have […]

Their conversation is documented in John, however, reflects many of our conversations with Jesus. Jesus is now sitting on the right side of God- Our Father, interceding for you and me. […]

Deceived: Clarity Needed, Avoiding Societal Confusion

Deceived: Clarity Needed, Avoiding Societal Confusion

Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”  Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God- I say this to your shame. (1 Corinthians 15:33 ESV) Forward Friday!  Importance is always making sure Scripture is not taken out of context. In today’s Scripture, Paul was discussing a hot topic, commentary states most explosive in the Corinthian church; life after death, Jesus’ resurrection. Even false religions still battle today. Any time there are two sets of ideologies at odds- safe to say…Biblically aligning one will be good, and […]

Do Evil? Answer Is....

But Abram said, “O Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?” And Abram said, “You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir.” (Genesis 15:2, 3 NIV) Then the Word of the Lord came to him:”This man will not be your heir, but a son coming from your own body will be your heir.” He took him outside and said, “Look up at the heavens and count the stars- if indeed you can count them.” The […]
