Strengthen Your Walk

Day 5   1 Timothy 4:8 “For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” This is the year to strengthen your walk with Christ; spend time strengthening your spiritual muscles, knowing His word, and diving deep into scriptures that can strengthen you when needed. Quite often, in times of uncertainty, I will refer back to a scripture that has sustained me, which helps me focus on my situation and know how to answer someone who might be seeking God and want to …

What Is Our Hope This Year?

  Day 6 James 1:12  “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.” Our promise is set when we turn our life and all circumstances to Jesus. On this day and all days forward, remember that he will come again, we will persevere, and we know that we will receive the crown of life from Jesus as promised. My prayer is this for you: that the Lord will shine His light through you and that you will …

What Do You Want to Pay?

  I saw one of those cute little tea towels for sale online. It had Psalm 107: 1 monogrammed on it.  Then I noticed the price tag hanging from it.  $16.50. Wow, one tea towel almost $20.00.  For that price, I wouldn’t want to use it.  I’d just let it hang in my kitchen as a wall decoration. Psalm 107: 1 says “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.”  What does that cost really?  Can we afford God’s goodness and love?  Do we deserve it?  Truth is His goodness and love are free gifts.  …

Infinitely More

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his all mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. – Ephesians 3:20 Every minute of every day, thoughts go in and out of our minds. While driving to work in the morning, we may be thinking about the day ahead. What we need to do when we get to our desks, the meeting that we have at 1pm, what we are going to make for dinner tonight when we get home. Endless thoughts are constantly going around in our minds. If we …

Words of Praise

Reflections from Corinne’s Garden: God’s Designed Pathway to the Sacrifice of Praise “Let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge His name” –Hebrews 13:15 May the Lord open our eyes to see His glorious Designed Pathway to the Sacrifice of Praise before us this week? The backdrop for this week together is a lovely garden where I spent many years with my disabled granddaughter Corinne. Behavior issues prevented us from going out in public, as a result we came so often that I lovingly named it Corinne’s Garden. Wandering …

New Identity of Praise

Reflections from Corinne’s Garden: God’s Designed Pathway to the Sacrifice of Praise In our third day of looking at how we reflect on lifting a sacrifice of praise let’s continue in Colossians 3:10 which speaks of focusing our new identity in Christ. “And have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” Colossians 3:10 (NIV) My ID card Reads: Image Bearer of God ‘Who am I? What is my identity? This was a thought that crossed my mind today as I watched people come and go throughout the park. The sun sparkles through …

Churches Should Be Model for Others

While We Wait for Christ’s Return – Our Churches Should be Models for Others Not only are individuals held accountable for how we live, but churches are accountable for their testimony in their communities. “We ought to thank God always for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, since your faith is flourishing and the love each one of you has for one another is increasing.” II Thess. 1:3 How would you rate the church’s relationship with God? Is faith continuing to grow?  Is your church consistently trusting God?  How would you rate relationships within the church? Is love increasing?  …

God promises a King – a Redeemer

  Psalm 118:1  “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his faithful love endures forever.” (CSB) One of my favorite verses is found in Psalm 118.  I’m sure it is very familiar to you also. Psalm 118:24 “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Following on down, just a few verses, we find vs. 26 -“He who comes in the name of the Lord is blessed.”  Let’s discover an Old Testament connection with the New Testament! In Matthew 21, we find the event we call the triumphal entry of …

Roman Road

The Roman Road is a series of scriptures from the Bible that explains what’s necessary to obtain salvation. If we asked someone the question: “What are you being saved from?”, we may hear they’re being saved from an eternity in Hell. That’s true; however, we can take the definition of salvation a step further. Romans 3:23 is the first verse in the Roman Road. Sin is the act of doing something wrong in the sight of God – or a lack of doing something God commands us to do. Sin is immoral. This scripture tells us that everyone has sinned …

Self-Testimony

      1 Peter 3:15-16  “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. When we meet new people and develop friendships, how long should we wait until we begin talking to them about our faith? Have we even stopped long enough to consider their soul’s destination? Unless we’re in …

How Heavy Is That You’re Carrying

One of our grands’ backpacks has a strap that is fraying loose. I’ve got to sew it back tightly. The weight of what is carried in that backpack has found a weak spot. Without sewing it back the strap will eventually come totally loose. Oh beloved, God reminds me to sew that backpack. And He remind us all that sometimes the contents we carry is so heavy that our faith starts to fray. We’ve all tried to carry more than we were meant to. We can even get bent over with the heaviness of it all. Pretty soon we think …
