Minds…Must Be Opened for Understanding

Minds...Must Be Opened for Understanding

He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you. Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms.” Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. (Luke 24:41-45 NIV) Motivating Monday! After raising from the dead, Jesus spent limited time with the disciples. When reading the NT, the disciples keep us turning pages- they really did not understand much and even after Jesus explained in parables…they still had trouble. This is much like when first engaging into our Spiritual journeys’. […]

Potter/Clay…Take Time, Seeking and Finding

Potter/Clay...Take Time, Seeking and Finding

But now, O Lord, you are our Father, we are the clay, and you are our potter, we are all the work of your hand. (Isaiah 64:8 ESV) Forward Friday!  Moving forward we must do, praying continuously for all in need: healing, safety, economy, Government leaders, medical teams, medical committees, school officials…all making decisions, concerned about their people. While many of us are home- we’ve taken a step back with focus more on family, less distractions. I find myself in a Martha’s world, when my heart desires Mary’s heart to sit down and anoint Jesus’ feet. Seek Kari Job has […]

Endure…Seeking Jesus, Finding Deliverance

Endure...Seeking Jesus, Finding Deliverance

We do not want you to be uninformed brothers, about the hardship we suffered in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life. Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves, but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. (2 Corinthians 1:8-10a NIV) Motivating Monday! The day after Easter 2020, hopeful all had a wonderful day home, finding a deeper meaning […]

Supernatural Power- All God’s, His Will Be Done

Supernatural Power- All God

I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices with great riches. I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees, I will not neglect your word. Do good to your servant, and I will live; I will obey your word. Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law. (Psalm 118:14-18 NIV) Forward Friday! Yes, Easter weekend is here! As we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection, success in following God’s will, Jesus is Savior of the world. Why is it hard to follow God’s Word- Old and New Testament? Jesus is the ultimate […]

Faith: Mountains to Move, People to Save

Faith: Mountains to Move, People to Save

But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. Be merciful to those who doubt, snatch others from the fire and save them, to others show mercy-mixed with fear- hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh. (Jude 20-22 NIV) Motivating Monday! This week, I’ll be reminding myself- Don’t pass over the Pass Over! A statement from Jentezen Franklin’s sermon yesterday. It’s easy to see how fast paced many […]

Light/Darkness…God, A Shield, Take Refuge

Light/Darkness...God, A Shield, Take Refuge

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 […]

Protection: We Need Aide, His Name is…Jesus!

Protection: We Need Aide, His Name is...Jesus!

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 […]

Faith…Vital for Life; Right Vs. Wrong

Faith...Vital for Life; Right Vs. Wrong

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 […]

Deceive…Enemies Have Zero Value for Life

Deceive...Enemies Have Zero Value for Life

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- […]

Dwelling Place…Throughout All Generations

Dwelling Place...Throughout All Generations

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 […]
