When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep, and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a whip out of chords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables, To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! How dare you turn my Father’s house into a market!” His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.” […]
Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge, which some have professed and in so doing have wandered from the faith. Grace be to you. (2 Timothy 6:20 NIV) Motivating Monday! Paul’s letters to Timothy, were to encourage and challenge his successor. Paul was in prison, stating though he was in chains, God’s Word was not. (2 Timothy 2:9) Timothy was to guard was had been entrusted to his care. This lands across the board for us- what has God entrusted to our care? […]
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Matthew 7:13, 14 NIV) Forward Friday! Thankful for red letter words, David Crowder picked a great song to record. Today’s Scripture is straight from Jesus. From ships to small john boats, we want a tight run vessel. Any fraction of a leak, can lead to the vessel sinking. This my friend, is what I do not want […]
“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in Heaven may forgive you your sins.” (Mark 11: 22-26 NIV) Motivating Monday! Unsure if The Holy Spirit is […]
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, […]

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
