  1. I pray for our president and all of our leaders. Our country need prayer and an awaking of Christian values too.

  2. Good questions here. I believe sometime we have to be uncomfortable to move forward sometime, or else we would just stay where we are. Never moving forward. Praying, looking to improve and help others in our daily walk with the Lord with get us where we should be according to God will.

  5. I enjoyed reading this. I believe we have all said deliver us from evil at one point in time. It does seem that there is a lot of evil around us these days for sure. You are right the love of self is growing and wanting to justify sin to do what people want to do to feel better about what they know is wrong. Sadly it seems even some churches are more concerned with pleasing people instead of God. Living to please God is what we should have our mind set to, and helping the lost along the way.

  6. Listening to the Holy Spirit is to live. Living for Christ is to radiate His Word to all we encounter through our actions and our words. Thank you for writing this.

  7. I agree that a lot of churches expect lot people to just walk in, and that can happen. But I believe planting seeds out and about no matter how small it may seem can make a huge impact in bringing the lost to Christ.

  8. I agree that with all that is going on in the world today, it seems that the Lord could return soon. It is always a good time to read, share, and grow with the gospel. But in what seems like bad times it is even more important especially to reach out to those who may not even know the gospel.

  9. Well said. Progressivism is the drumbeat of society. It is well know in politics but only those paying attention can see it in the church. It is so sad that progressives don't want their own church, they want to change conservative churches. It is not about God, for them it is about them being accepted and approved. Sad. Thank you for your post.

  10. I believe that at times guilty of neglecting prayer when thing in our lives are going good. This is excellent reminder of prayer being just as important in good and bad times. The need for prayer should never change.

  11. This is a great example of other ways for tithing. I too believe many Christians are not taking there calling seriously. I have visited a lot of churches before fining a home church and my opinion is that a big cause for the lack of seriousness is watered down teachings. Unfortunately, I found too many churches in my area wanting to serve man more then God. Examples like not preaching all of Gods word and not taking a stand on what his word is against just to to offend anyone.

  12. Dedicating a month, week, service or anytime I think sounds like a good idea to the reading of a parable. My church like to mix think up like this and I will bring this up. Whenever I get to go back to services that is.

  18. Believers tend to ignore the issue of demons for many believe that these spiritual beings have little or no influence in the lives of Christians. Tragically with that display of Biblical ignorance we concede the advantage to Satan. Let me add to your correct statement, "...demons and devils can affect believers if they are not strong in their prayer life....as well as in their daily walk." Believers have authority over demonic spirits and that is through the name of Jesus! Thanks for sharing.

  19. Yes, I agree entirely with spiritual warfare! Life is a constant 24/7 battle between the Devil and ourselves, and the majority of Christians are blinded to that fact. But think about it. Peter was one of Jesus's disciples, yet when he said something contrary to what Jesus would have had him to say, Jesus rebuked the Devil to come out of him. Shouldn't we realize that demons and devils can affect believers if they are not strong in their prayer life? This is a great reminder for me to be in prayer more than ever, especially in the times that we are living in. Thank you for this.

  23. Hi MaryAnn, Thanks for sharing this post. I liked how you shaped it so that those who do not know God can take the opportunity to meet and commit their lives to him. Congratulations on obtaining First Place in the Historical Fiction Category of the 2020 Christian Indie Book Awards Contest. It's nice to come across someone who has actually won one of these book awards.

  25. You are right, we can so easily get distracted from our daily walk with the Lord. TV, phone, internet, or just tired. But, our soul suffers. Remembering the importance of making the time to grow in Gods word will feed our soul. Living a life of more joy and peace!

  26. It was not right to make accusations against Jared (or anyone's) Christianity. It appears the user deleted their account since they made their posts. I think there is nothing more to do at this time but the Moderators will keep their eyes open, and as always, feel free to Report a contentious thread or if you think someone is being attacked.

  31. Interesting, I think you are right. Many of us probably do not take the time to see if our prayer life is in need of improvement. I believe it is part of the relationship you have with God, and the strengthens with prayer. So to me that is something of the up most importance to make sure it is where it needs to be. I think this can be accomplished with being mindful of setting aside time each day. No matter how small to start. Make sure to surround yourself with people that will lift you up and you can do the same!

  37. Take a Lincoln penny, put a piece of paper over it, rub with pencil lead, and the image of Lincoln will appear. And only the image of Lincoln. God puts a piece of paper over my life, rubs with pencil lead, and the image of Christ appears. And only the image of Christ. It's not a magic trick. It's a miracle.

  41. When our kids were around 11, 7, and 4, we stopped dressing the kids up and sending them out for Halloween. It was not something we wanted to celebrate and the kids understood and agreed. We don't even give anything to kids. We turn the light out and no one comes. The kids don't really come down our street anyway for we live on a very quiet cul-de-sac. We do have some little ones now in two houses across the street. So they may make the rounds of the street. I knew about the 500th celebration. A much better event to celebrate.

Please, tell what you think of the content. If you can imagine a polished piece, would you think a book full of this stuff would be interesting?
