  1. Anxious? Pray! "Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done" (Philippians 4:6). Can you imagine never being anxious about anything? I am becoming anxious right now just thinking about it! It seems it is like a bandit under the moonlight hiding at every corner we turn. Even in love we experience anxiety. I know I worry about my family all the time. Sometimes there seems to be nothing I can do to escape. Paul gives us some good advice here though. He tells us to turn ou
  2. Red Hot "Later, when Jesus was alone with the twelve disciples and with the others who were gathered around, they asked him what the parables meant" (Mark 4:10). Jesus was a storyteller. Not only that: He was a very good story teller. He told the kind of stories that had you hanging off the edge of your seat, biting your lip, waiting in pure anxiety to find out what was happening. When I was teaching, I liked to tell stories as well. I would try to use stories from the community, from the news, or something that everyone would understand. And man oh man. When you
  3. Girl Push-ups "But why can't I come now, Lord?' he asked. I'm ready to die for you" (John 13:37). Peter didn't really know exactly what he was saying here. He was definitely ready to defend Jesus as we see in the garden when he takes up his sword against the guard. But, silently suffering for Jesus was a totally different story. I know myself, I sometimes forget this too. If it actually came down to it, would I walk gladly to my execution for Jesus like so many have in the past? Dietrich Bonhoffer for example. And so many others before him. Th
  4. High In The Clouds "Dark clouds surround him. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne" (Psalm 97:2). Have you ever thought about what it would actually feel like standing in God's presence? I know myself, personally, all the bad things I do and all the things I struggle with still, I would probably honestly feel ashamed and terrified! I know God loves me, and I know that I am forgiven, but still in the presence of a righteous holy God, I may be brought to my knees in complete terror. Why? I've had to go into court
  5. Led By Faith "It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going" (Hebrews 11:8). I love this verse so much. I guess I love it in this deep passionate way because I understand it. I understand it because I, just like Abraham, was in a situation like this once upon a time. I had so many people talk down to me and tell me I was crazy. I turned down a really good job offer to serve in the ministry. I wonder how many peo
  6. Naw! They wouldn't do such a thing
  7. @lynnmosher yeah I haven't heard any of his songs really. I'm not much of a country music fan honestly. I am subscribed to this - https://thisdaysthought.org/ They send a daily quote with a Bible verse every weekday I really enjoy them.
  8. I honestly thought about journaling every single day right before bed. Maybe it will be a paragraph of that day - maybe more - maybe less. But at the end of the year, go back over everything that I've written and develop a book. Add characters, maybe create my own little world with my daily thoughts and real life moments from the year. That is a big commitment and I honestly doubt that I am discilpined enough to see that through. That would be pretty cool though huh?
  9. Today is the 1st page to a 365 page book. How are U going to write it? ( Brad Paisley) So with that being said, what is your book going to be about?
  10. Thank U for sharing it is very true what you said, "The devil will never show himself for what he really is." He will get you everytime with something that you love or something that you truly desire that may seem harmless. Blessings to you, Chris
  11. Integrity Better a poor person walking in integrity than one who is perverse in his speech and is a fool - Proverbs 19:1 Then the Lord asked Satan, Have you noticed my servant Job? He is the finest man in all the earth. He is blameless - a man of complete integrity. He fears God and stays away from evil. And he has maintained his integrity, even though you urged me to harm him without cause - Job 2:3 I love this definition of integrity from the "Pocket Dictionary of Ethics." The situation in which outward conduct arises out of and coheres with sound, inwardl
  12. Why Should I Pray In Luke 18, Jesus told his disciples that they should always pray and never give up. Do you know what my problem is? I give up. I am impatient and I never fully follow through if the timing isn't within my terms. That has definitely put a barrier in my relationship with God. When that happens you see that things try to slowly ease back into your life that were there before - sinful things - wrong things. A man once confessed that, "Before I was converted I prayed to nobody. Now I pray to God." Why do I feel someti
  13. That is an amazingly cute food dish. It kind of looks like one of those old butter bowls. You know the ones that double for cereal bowls, soup bowls, and kitten food dishes. lol
  14. From Persecutor to Preacher "But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them - yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me" (1 Corinthians 15:10). I am what I am only by the grace of God! I believe it was the 1st year of high school. We had a job fair. Do you remember those? People would come from different places and sit up little booths in the gym and basically try to recruit you into their profession. I had no idea what I wanted to do in my adult life. Unfortunatel
