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…)

Partakers of A Rich Inheritance

RICH INHERITANCE

In my last post, I concentrated on the fact that Paul prayed for the Ephesian church to know What Is The Hope Of God’s Calling.

Thought Life Renovation: We All Need One!

Thought Life Renovation

A thought life renovation is a lot like a house renovation. Have you ever watched a home renovation or even lived through one? I lived in an old house while I renovated it. One room at a time, I removed and resurfaced old fixtures and features and brought in new materials and elements. I transformed the entire house room by room. The renovation took time and commitment to see its completion but it proved worth it. Right now I am in the midst of renovating a townhouse for my youngest daughter …

Stressful Situation

No doubt David was experiencing a stressful situation when he wrote Psalm 69:1-3. Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing; I have come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. I am weary with my crying; my throat is dry; my eyes fail while I wait for my God. Psalm 69:1-3 (more…)

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…)

The Day God Called Me to Women’s Ministry

Happy group of adult women having fun

I will never forget the day God called me to women’s ministry. I understood that God was calling me. However, I had no idea what that meant for a thirty-seven year old woman with three daughters, a husband, a job, and a very busy life. The only thing I knew to do was pray that God would reveal His will. The cry of my heart was, “Send me; I will go.”     Three months went by and I heard nothing else from God. I decided not to tell anyone except my …
