God’s Kingdom Will Prevail! Division Will Not…

Furious? To Do Good or To Do Evil? Answer Is....

If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom will not stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. (Mark 3:24, 25 ESV) Motivating Monday! This is definitely a motivating day to channel our thoughts toward how divisive the devil can really be- he’s not playing to be nice. Although, slick and enticing as his taunts can be, luring us into troubled areas- he is deceptive. Why is Beth Moore placing herself in a divisive position? The Southern Baptist have their doctrine as every Church. Why do other Christians go against […]

Words…Flawless like Refined Silver, Truth

Words: Acceptable In God

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times. O Lord, you will keep us safe and protect us from such people forever. The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men. (Psalm 12:6-8 NIV) A Melody… There’s within my heart a melody…Jesus whispers sweet and low: Fear not, I am with thee, peace, be still, in all of life’s ebb and flow. Wow! Amazing when asking Jesus how to encourage, this sweet song comes to mind. The title is…There’s Within My Heart a Melody. I […]

Overcome Troubling Times? Who’s Ready?

overcome

“I (Jesus) 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 16:33 NIV) Motivating Monday! I cannot imagine too many other verses touching deep into our souls with fire- burning flames magnifying God’s power through The Holy Spirit living within. Yes, in this world we do have trouble. Jesus, for this very reason, sent to live in this world; presenting truth though parables to help His disciples understand. As we read through Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John…be sure to have […]

Sin: Compromising Biblical Truth…Indulgence

Deceptive Methods- Increase Societal Confusion

Just as it is written in the law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us, yet we have not sought the favor of the Lord our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to your truth. The Lord did not hesitate to bring the disaster upon us, for the Lord our God is righteous in everything he does, yet we have not obeyed him. (Daniel 9:13, 14 NIV) Faith Daniel proves we can keep our faith, avoid compromise and live with a nation disrespecting our beliefs. He spent decades in Babylon, after captured and dragged into […]

Battle…Motivated to Overcome Distress

Righteousness: To Be Fulfilled, God

But I call to God, and the Lord saves me. Evening, morning, and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice. He ransoms me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me. (Psalm 55:16-18 NIV) Motivating Monday!  Memorial Day 2019, a day we remember all who have served, receiving their ultimate banner waving high. Hearts who served, standing firm for our freedom. It’s easy to see faces, lets not forget their hearts, their inner fiber who were destined to be one of the greatest, by serving. Battle Battle after battle military are trained […]

Hopeless Vs. Standing Firm, Hopeful

Accuse: Heart Matters and Releasing Truth

“Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a little oil.” (2 Kings 4:2b NIV) Hearts Matter! Hearts matter and we each have one. Anyone or someone we know feeling hopeless? In midst of societal confusion, seems an endless list of needs. For me, I am most concerned for people deceived- how they became deceived, and how to free them from deception. We are in the lowest unemployment in years, yet, as cycles go…brick and mortar stores are closing opting for internet sales. Wal-Mart and other grocery stores are removing cashiers for self-check outs. Serious health issues need […]

Commandments: Abiding, God

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength…(Galatians 1:18, 19 NIV) Motivating Monday! Congratulations to all graduates! Amazing time of year seeing our next level of citizens branching into the world. A newfound sense of independence no matter how close or far graduates decide. My hope and desire for each; they’ve been gifted with […]

Search Hearts? Know My Thoughts?

Search Hearts? Know My Thoughts?

Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting! (Psalm 139:23, 24 ESV) Forward Friday! Basic 101- The heart is most deceitful above all things and beyond cure- who can understand it? Jeremiah 17:9 is clarified further in verse 10: “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.” In order to move forward, we stop and search our hearts. Are we ready to […]

Trust the Lord…And Do Good, God is Faithful

Trust the Lord...And Do Good, God is Faithful

Fret not yourself because of evil doers; be not envious of wrongdoers! For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. (Psalm 37:1-3 ESV) Good News! A time to search hearts, and be reminded of God’s good news! We can become heavy laden when circumstances do not align like with think they should. We see ourselves or our children’s hard work, train hard and then when by world standards, disappointment fills our hearts. What I have been reminded this week, I […]

Reward, Good, and Perfect…God’s Gifts

Reward, Good, and Perfect...God

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. (Psalm 127:3 ESV) Motivating Monday! God’s ways are beautiful and perfect. A life developing God’s purpose with gifts and talents only He can provide- not the world’s contaminated bulldozing occurring in our midst. His Word is same today, yesterday, and forever more. Aligning with Jesus is far more rewarding than any individual ideology offering. One reward aligns with God’s provision over our lives who He calls to parent- biological, adoption, or mentoring through Christ’s love. Reward It’s amazing to be back with each of you! […]
