Naaman’s servants went to him and said, “My father, if the prophet would have told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more then, when he tells you ‘Wash and be clean’!” So he went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him, and his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy. (2 Kings 5:13, 14 NIV) Forward Friday! Wash and be clean! Simple…though we find foolish and dismiss. The world around us, many are hurting, needing solutions to […]
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be eaten by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord as spoken.” (Isaiah 1: 18-20 ESV) Motivating Monday, Good news or bad news first? Our country is dividing further apart- left leaning more left and right staying steadfast, grounded in God’s Word. Governors are […]
“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 […]

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
