“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be. (Matthew 6:19-21 ESV) Forward Friday! In midst of uncertainty of last few months, I believe many individuals have been reminded truth about our treasure. Social distancing is not new for me- I began social distancing 13 years ago. I had always been heavily involved in my […]
“O Lord, God of Abraham, Issac, and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. Answer me, O Lord, answer me so these people will know that you, O Lord, are God, and that you are turning hearts back again.” (1 Kings 18:36b-27) Motivating Monday! Wow! Elijah stood strong among all the false prophets and proved our God- Alpha and Omega, beginning and the end…is the true God. How many times in the Bible have God’s people turned their hearts from […]
Don’t be deceived my dear brothers. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created. (James 1:16-18 NIV) Forward Friday! Freedom is on my mind, and if the Son(Jesus) sets us free, we are free indeed! Where’s freedom like this gained? It is through Jesus, The Word of Truth…a new birth where old things fade, and we become a new creation in […]
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 the present age, while we wait for the blessed hope- the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. (Titus 3:11-13 NIV) Motivating Monday! Grace brings salvation, the starting point to all Christ-centered Spiritual journeys. We have churches dismissing powerful arrival of The Holy Spirit within a person, empowered taking next steps into newness in Christ Jesus. The initial salvation prayer is the bridge, from […]
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’. […]

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
