The Last Fruit of the Spirit- Temperance

May 24, 2022

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: Galatians 5:22&23

Temperance is Emotional Restraint or Self-Control. Do we ever get angry and loose self-control? We have a temper and it shows.

How do we conquer bad temper? Give it all to Jesus. He wants us to be in control over our emotions.

Is it sinful to be angry? Not necessarily. What is sinful is how we control that anger. If we find ourselves getting angry, it is better to walk away than to shout, yell or worse.

The old saying I’d count to ten before you react. Good advice. Today let us decide to control our temper and give it to the Lord.

Fruit of the Spirit- Meekness

May 23, 2022

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: Galatians 5:22&23

Biblical meaning of meekness: Meekness is essentially an attitude or quality of heart whereby a person is willing to accept and submit without resistance to the will and desire of someone else.

What a great definition of meekness. God’s Word tells us to be willing to have an attitude of submission. That is preferring others before ourselves.

Most of all we must have a heart that is submission to God. Allow Him to change our attitude of being right to accepting another’s desire above our own.

(That does not mean we have to be submissive in an abusive situation. If you are in a relationship that you are suffering abuse, get out, pray that God will give you wisdom and show you where to go for help)

What To Do When You Can’t Pray

May 13, 2022

Sometimes we are in a place where we can not pray. We may be ill depressed or discouraged. Maybe we are in the middle of something that is sinful. God knows all of our problems and He is waiting for us to pray.

Be honest with God. He has the answer. Tell Him that you do not feel like praying and ask the Holy Spirit to pray for you. The Bible tells us that Jesus is making intercession for us. We can’t hide our thoughts from God.

But, thank Him for loving you and understanding. God wants our praise even when we are unable to pray.

Soon the time of prayer will return and our relationship with God will be even better.

Where Is Your Treasure?

May 11, 2022

You may have a beautiful home or you may be living in a place of poverty. You may not have a home at all and have no earthly possessions. Whatever you have or wherever you live will not matter when you get to Heaven.

How do we lay up treasures in Heaven? We must be sure we are going there by trusting in Jesus for forgiveness of sin.

Obedience to God’s Word. Loving God with all your heart and loving one another.

Telling others about salvation. There is a crown for soul winners. All our treasure in Heaven we can lay at Jesus feet. He is the One who is worthy of all our love, devotion and treasure.

May God bless you today. Happy Mother’s Day to all who have the joy of being a Mother.

This day may bring some sadness to those who have not been able to have children. May God bless you and bring a special blessing into your life today.

The Bible verse today is a prayer that God will bless you and may His face shine on you all.

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

Tomorrow Is Mother’s Day!

May 7, 2022

1914, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Mother’s Day a national holiday to be celebrated every year on the second Sunday of May. He recognized that mothers are the backbone of society.

The Bible tells us to train up a child in the way he should go, and he will not depart from it.

Your Mom is the biggest influence in your life since childhood. Tomorrow is a great opportunity to honor her and tell her thank you, if you are blessed to have her still with you. If she has passed on, honor her memory.

What Children Need From Mom!

May 6, 2022
This happy couple has 5 children. Michelle is a good example to her children.

Children need from their moms, a good example. First she must love the Lord with all her heart.

Then next, she must show respect and love for her husband.

Children who have a good example set before the feel love and security no matter what the circumstance around them.

An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. Proverbs 21:10-12

Sometimes it is hard and feels like an impossible job, but God is with you to give you wisdom, grace and love for them.

So today, give them your time, kind words and a special hug. You have the greatest gift in them.

Mothers, The Greatest Job In The World

May 4, 2022

A mother has the most influence on a child’s life. What she says and does teaches her children on how they should speak and act.

As Christian moms we should teach our children the Word of God from the beginning of their lives. We start by singing songs about Jesus. Read them stories from the Bible. Most of all pray with them and for them.

Our words are so important!! Speak softly and kindly. Listen to them. Be careful to encourage and not set a bad example by harsh or unkind words.

Being a mother is the most important job in the world. We never know what our children will become. We may be training that child to be great for God. A little girl who could influence a country like Esther, or a little boy a great leader like Moses.
