Who or What Would I Like to Be?

        While we were children, sometimes we thought we’d like to be a certain favorite movie star or other famous person. Other times we thought we’d like to be in a certain vocation when we grew up. Perhaps it is part of childhood to fantasize, whether we express our thoughts or not.  I remember even thinking if I could be any of God’s other creatures, what I would choose to be. Perhaps I would choose to be a dove with a mournful song; a colorful humming bird with ability to flutter around pretty flowers and suck their sweet nectar, or a …

God’s Amazing Love

      Romans 8: 37-39  “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall trouble, hardship, persecution, or nakedness, danger, famine, or sword..No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through …

What Shall We Say

Romans 8: 37-39 “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  shall trouble, hardship,persecution,or nakedness, danger, famine, or sword..No, in all these things  we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us: for I am convinced neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither present or future…nor height or depth, nor anything in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” What then shall we say in response to the above? Nothing can separate us from God’s love.  It’s not too late to intercede for God’s mercy …

Women Show Their Love to Jesus

  Mark 16:1-5, 9  “When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. 2 Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb 3 and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. 5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting …

Jesus Appearance After Resurrection

  John 20:1-8 “Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2 So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” 3 So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. 4 Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5 He bent over and looked in at the …

Life Through the Spirit

      Romans 8:1-2  “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.” It was impossible to keep all the Jewish laws; and it especially was difficult for women who were not considered significant to society. It’s amazing Jesus raised status of women. And no matter how sinful. He forgave sins and instead of condemning a woman told her to go and not continue living sinful lives. “The teachers of the law …

The Righteous and the Unrighteous

      Matthew 5:45b “He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” For Your sake we face death all day long: we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. As recorded in the Gospel of Matthew, God causes the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and unrighteous. It is tragic that adults are dying as the result of COVID-19, but little children are dying also. When a tornado or other earth disaster comes righteous die with unrighteous. …

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 …
