Day 1 Prayer

    Monday: Scripture:  Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by supplication and prayer, present your petitions to God, and His peace which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. This is wonderful advice, but at age almost one hundred three. still I have not attained that goal; however, believe that I have made some progress. But need to remind myself that if I trust God completely, there will be no room for anxiety. So my prayer is for our Father in heaven to increase your faith and mine. Amen.   Doris Lisemby …

Day 2 Treasures

  Tuesday: Scripture: Matthew 6: 19-21 “Do not store for yourself treasures on earth where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven where moth and rust do not destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal: for where your treasure is there will your heart be, also.” I don’t remember much about the drama: titled You Can’t Take it with You, But there is much truth in that statement. Many spend their entire lives working and deprive themselves of many essentials of life; then leave all they …

Day 3-Two Masters

    Wednesday: Scripture: Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters: either he will hate one and love the other; or he will be devoted to one and will despise the other. You can not serve God and money!”   Probably many have not become aware about this truth,  But the poor can become so consumed with how they’ll become financially secure, and that becomes sin, also. For God is aware of all our needs and we should trust Him to supply all our needs. So Father, we thank You, in Jesus’ name for supplying our daily needs. Amen. Doris Lisemby

Day 4 Don’t Worry

        Thursday: Scripture: Matthew 6: 25  “…do not worry about your life: what you will eat or drink…is life not more important than food?” Probably most people in my society and yours have never really been hungry and worry about having sufficient food to eat, but many are not so blessed: thousands of individuals go to bed hungry every night. Some would enjoy left overs we dump in the garbage. So Father, we thank You in Jesus’ name for the blessings You provide each day, and for the love You bestow on people: both poor and otherwise.   Doris Lisemby

Day 5 Worry about Clothes

    Friday: Scripture:Matthew 6: 28-29 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin Yet I tell you even Solomon was not dressed like one of these. ”   In my walk-in closet are many clothes: most I’ll never wear again and although some may be old and not the fashion currently, I wish they could benefit people who need clothes. Currently while confined to my room in a lift chair Usually I wear a quilted robe each day but can’t go anywhere to wear nice clothes. So I …

Day 6 Seek God

Saturday: Scripture: Matthew 6:34 “But seek first His kingdom and righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well. Do not worry about tomorrow… for each day has enough trouble of its own.” We have no promise of tomorrow; therefore, it’s useless to be concerned about tomorrow, and so Jesus’ command not to be anxious about the day that might dawn. And it is true we have sufficient problems to cope with every day. So Father in heaven, give each person who will reads these words enough faith not to worry about the daily problems of life. We thank and …

Burial and Resurrection of Christ Jesus

    John  19:31-42 31 Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down. 32 The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other. 33 But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ …

The Risen Lord

      Luke 24:13-16   “Now that same day two were traveling to village called Emmaus about seven miles from Jerusalem and they were talking about every thing that had happened; and as they talked and discussed these things with each other. Jesus himself appeared and walked along with them, but they were kept from recognizing Him.” Also,  Jesus appeared to His disciples, but Thomas was absent and when told they had seen Jesus, he did not believe them and said unless he sees the nail marks in his hands and put my hands into his side he would not …

Jesus on Trial

      John 18: 12 b-14  “… after Jewish officials arrested Jesus, they bound Him and brought Him first to Annas,. father in law of Ciaphas, the high priest that year, who had advised the Jews that it would be good if one man died for the people.” Can you conceive of the ill-treatment shown the Savior of the world? Instead of treating Him with love and respect, He was treated like a criminal. But before we are too critical of those people: have you and I shown Jesus the respect He deserves in our lives? Have we given …

Jesus Crucified

        John 19: 16-18 “So the soldiers took charge of Jesus and carrying His own cross, He went out to the place of the skull which is called Golgotha. Here they crucified Him and two others: one on each side of Him, and Jesus in the middle.” Have you accepted your salvation without realizing what a sacrifice it cost your Father in heaven? He loves you and me very much to give His only son to redeem your and my sinful lives from eternal separation and to avoid spending eternity in a place of fire and brimstone. …

Hallelujah Jesus is Alive

“On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he …

Jesus Betrayed

  John 18:1-3 When he had finished praying, Jesus left with his disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was a garden, and he and his disciples went into it.2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples. 3 So Judas came to the garden, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and the Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons.   When He had finished praying, Jesus left with His disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley;on the other side was an olive …
