The Value Of A Godly Friend

Godly Friend

A godly friend is a priceless treasure. This morning I was reminded of the value of a godly friend while praying for the women participating in my online Bible study program DIG.  I felt like Jesus said, “They need to know that you are praying for them.” So, I opened up their DIG Facebook group and put the prayer I prayed for them in a post . This way they could see and know my prayers for them. (more…)

Journey with Jesus: Walking Through His Word

Journey with Jesus

My journey with Jesus began twenty-five years ago, over a decade since I walked away from church and Jesus at sixteen. When I returned at twenty-nine, I began reading my Bible again not really understanding what I read. To me the Bible was a true account of something that happened long ago. I guess you could say, I equated the Bible to a History Book. (more…)

Attitude of Gratitude

Attitude of Gratitude

If we see a person with an attitude of gratitude, their basic approach to life would be thankful. The book of Psalms show us that David had attitude of gratitude, especially towards God. David authored at least 74 of the 150 psalms. 12 of those 74 psalms are identified as songs of praise or thanksgiving. David understood that everything good he had, God had given him.   (more…)

God’s Calling, God’s Commission, and Getting Your Ministry Started

Girl deciding which way to go.

My Pastor’s message this morning was focused around the reality that we are all made for more. We are saved by God, called by God, for something bigger than ourselves and beyond ourselves.   Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began. 2 Timothy 1:9   God has called each person to their own individual ministry in the body of Christ. That looks …

Hard Work Should be a Labor of Love

Labor of Love

Labor of love defined might be hard work for the sake of love.   This past weekend was a beautiful celebration of love at my middle daughter’s wedding. She married the one she loves at my house this past weekend. It was a wonderful experience, but the wedding preparations required a lot of hard work. I can truly say that I delighted in doing the hard work. It was a blessing to be able to give the gift of a beautiful wedding to my daughter. Why because I love her …

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Actions speak louder than words, is something I have always believed. Not that words are not important, but if the words and the actions don’t coincide and reveal the same thing, then the words seem pointless. Ashley White writes today’s devotional about how actions speak louder than words. I love her biblical insight and personal testimony about how actions speak louder than words to God too. (more…)
