Unconditional Love

April 24, 2018

Don’t let your past determine your future. Look to God for the truth. Don’t let the past steal you from the joys of today. The Lord has so much for you. I pray you will take time to read His Word daily and talk to Him through prayer then watch how he will guide you. He wants to walk with you every minute of the day, you are so important to Him. Ask Him to open your eyes to the truth of His unconditional love for you. See yourself through His eyes.

Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV) says, Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Encouragement

April 22, 2018

Our heavenly Father understands our disappointment, suffering, pain, fear, and doubt. He is always there to encourage our hearts and help us understand that He’s sufficient for all of our needs. When I accepted this as an absolute truth in my life, I found that my worrying stopped.   -Dr. Charles Stanley

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”    James 1:5
“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”  II Corinthians 12:9

Patience

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31

Have a Good Morning

April 14, 2018

Some people have to start their day with a cup of coffee. They feel they cannot function without that coffee in the morning. Others have a certain routine that gets them moving without coffee or breakfast. However you start your day, there is one thing that is essential, that is having time to communicate with The Lord with Bible reading and prayer. Don’t have time you think. Your day will go much better if you start it with Him.

Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

Spiritual Understanding

April 13, 2018

Matthew 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Jesus spoke in parables so that true believers would understand what He wanted them to know and the unbelievers could not understand His instructions. Sometimes our physical seeing gets dim or out of focus and our hearing gets dull as we get older, but we must not allow our spiritual eyes to to be out of focus or our spiritual hearing dulled. How? Just as we correct our physical problem with glasses or hearing aids, we correct our spiritual problems by reading scripture and praying everyday. Allow Jesus to speak to you clearly and pray for understanding.

Brothers and Sisters

April 11, 2018

The USA has many dates are set aside to honor special people. April 11, yesterday, was Siblings Day. A time to be thankful for your brothers and sisters. However, some of us do not have siblings or maybe there has been some family disagreements that have kept you apart. Good news, as Christians we have many brothers and sisters in Christ. There is a bond with other Christians that can even be closer than our blood siblings. Let us be thankful for our fellow Christians and appreciate the relationship that we have with them.

1 Thessalonians 4:9 But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

God’s Handiwork

April 4, 2018

Today, look around you at God’s handiwork. Find something in His creation that you can Praise the Lord for, even if you feel depressed or sad. There was a time when I did not feel like getting out of bed because of the death of a son, but I would find one or more things that God created that I could thank Him for and everyday it got a little bit better, until finally I could Praise Him for everything. We have an awesome God that loves and cares for us.

Preparing for Easter

March 23, 2018

Easter is a little over a week away and many are getting ready. The stores are full of candy, clothes and decorations for the Easter celebrations but very little if any have anything pointing to the true meaning of Easter. The death, burial and resurrection of The Lord and Savior, Jesus. As we prepare for time with family and friends for Easter, let us remember the true reason why we celebrate. Jesus resurrection is proof that there is life after death and we can be sure of eternal life if we accept Jesus as our Savior.

2 Timothy 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

Spring is Here!

March 20, 2018

The calendar says it is the first day of spring. Many of us have been waiting for it because winter has been hard. In northern areas it may not feel like spring yet, snow, ice and cold is still around and the forecast is calling for more. But, we look forward to spring and rejoice when the first flower comes up out of the soil. Christian life is like that. Sometimes life is hard and there seems no end in sight, but we can look to Jesus. He is the One who brings joy into our lives.

Psalms 32:11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
