You are a lamp, O Lord; the Lord turns my darkness into light. With your help I can advance a troop, with my God I can scale a wall. As for God, his ways are perfect; the Word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him. (2 Samuel 22:29-31 NIV) Motivating Monday! Today’s Scripture is taken from King David’s Song of Praise. This song can be found in 2 Samuel 22 and Psalm 18. Darkness vs. light, is a real struggle…seems more light, more darkness. An abundant light is being shed…in midst […]

Is it not you, O God, who has rejected us and no longer go out with our armies? Give us aide against the enemy, for the help of man is worthless. With God, we will gain the victory, and He will trample down our enemies. (Psalm 60:10-12 NIV) Forward Friday! I’ve loved and been encouraged by all leaning on Psalm 91. I received the Spirit’s nudge to read Psalm 60. Here King David had battle on his mind. The old saying, “We’re in a world of trouble,” has never been more true. This C-Virus is impacting the entire world. I […]
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. By faith Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. By faith he was commended as a righteous man, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith he still speaks, even though he is dead. (Hebrews 11:1-4 NIV) Motivating Monday! Faith is vital for life. It’s […]
Jesus answered, “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.” (Matthew 24:4 NIV) Forward Friday! Today, I have decided it’s time to stand firm in the armor of God! All week here in America, we have seen schools close, restaurants close, various states in different shifts of this C-virus meltdown. Are we seeing God’s Wrath or experiencing a pure evil attack? Have we felt the brith pains of earthquakes and famine? Do I believe evil comes from God? No. Do I believe in God’s Wrath- […]
Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. (Psalm 90:1,2 NIV) Motivating Monday! When Scripture is underlined in our Bibles, I believe they are meant to remind or catch our attention for such a time. Beside today’s Scripture, I wrote…Always God. God has always been- before all creation, God was here. Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Sorry, the big bang theory is refuted here; Scripture states in verse 2, the earth […]
I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. (John 14:12-14 NIV) Forward Friday! No time for Christians to panic, we are not to fear- God promises to be our shield and rear guard. We need to pray more than ever and […]
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him, shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. (John 3:16,17 ESV) Motivating Monday! Let’s not fear- we are told many times in Scripture to have no fear. It is smart to be prepared, let’s give our cares and concerns to The Lord, Jesus Christ. He promises to be our shield and rear guard. We need to pray more than anything, […]
The word-fake is defined as…not genuine, counterfeit; a forgery, a sham. Fake is false, as telling a lie. Fake media is really fake- caught in many lies…
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope- the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. (Titus 2:11-14 NIV) Motivating Monday! March 2, and 2020 is well on its way! While we expected […]
Deceptive is so deep and dark, as I pray for God to shine light on all darkness; I sense He knows it’s more than we can fathom.

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
