Daily scripture and thoughts

fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10 ESV)

Dear Ones
Fear is not of God.  He desires for his children to know who they are in Him and know that He is with you always. He is the only source of true strength. When you fear and turn to someone else, they can only give you temporary strength. Their Words can bring you comfort but as soon as they walk away that fear welds up in you again. Only the Words of The Lord and His  strength leaves you feeling comforted and at ease.

Lord you know my fears. Lord grant me your peace ever lasting. Guide me through your truth! Strengthen me as I walk forward in 2014. May your truth, peace and love be with me. 

ALLOW 2014 to be glorifying to you!

Daily Scripture and thoughts

but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31 ESV)

Dear Ones
Waiting the hardest thing to do. Man is a create that wants and desires instant gratification. We are part of a society that instant gratification is encouraged and costly flaunted- the Word reminds us that waiting on The Lord renews our strength. We are able to wait, we are able to because the strength we receive is not ours, it is from Him. Waiting means sacrifice, waiting means allowing God to do within us whatever He desires to do to mold us and shape us. Waiting means that We are Not In Control! 

Waiting- means God is God and you are not- we are all waiting in one way or another. The question is are you willing to wait? Are you willing to allow God to use you? Are you willing to be guided by Him and strengthened by Him?

Lord be my strength and I seek you and wait upon you.

Daily scripture and thoughts and more

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. (Romans 12:12, 13 ESV)

Dear Ones
Rejoicing in Hope- how do you do that when everything around you seems to be to hard to rejoice over but It is only in the HOPE that lies with in we can rejoice. Being patient in our tribulation or trial sometimes is hard  when that trial or tribulation seems to be overtaking your life but be in constant prayer. Prayer: I  fail in this department. I wish I can say I am always in prayer with my Lord. I wish I could say that I am faithful in this area but I would be lying. Truth be told- I desire so badly for this area of my life to change.  Lord give me strength  to overcome and be faithful in prayer to you.

Contribute to the needs of the Saints and seek to show hospitality- contributing does not seem hard for the Body of Christ but Hospitality seems to be a struggle with in the Body. People do not want to show Hospitality because then people will see them in their own environment. Transparency is necessary and many have no desire to be transparent in there walk with Christ.


May this Word speak to your hearts...

More-
Today we went to a funeral of the 5 month old baby I posted about earlier this week. Her little face was like one of a porcelain doll. She looks so precious and so peaceful.  The service was beautiful and my beloved's message was words of encouragement in to the believer and to bring hope for the lost.

The Enemy-


What happens in the heart of your child that you become their enemy?
What happens to them that they actually believe that you , the person who brought them into this world, cared for them when they were sick, fed them and clothed them; is their enemy?

I know the lies- I have heard them. I lived them for a long time. I had expectations of how my mom was to be and when she did not meet those expectations I had NOTHING NICE TO SAY.

WOW-
Thank you Lord that you can even reveal my own heart to myself.

I have wondered if I am reaping what I have sown in my own life. I know that my son is planting seeds in the heart of his future wife against us, against me. I often ask myself how is she supposed to love us when he is dumping everything on her.  When he can't express himself for himself, he expresses it to her and in turn she is to bind our hearts to us and love us. HOW?
 He has expectations that things are supposed to be the same for him, though he packed his bags, moved out and has excluded us from his life since then.

All of this division is based on HIS expectations towards us, but he decided to turn from the expectations of righteousness we had for him.

I guess this is where the scriptures come alive:

Luke 12
51Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. 52For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. 53They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

His Word brings division. His Word that so clearly shows that

Titus 3

 10As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, 11knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.

What do you do when this person is your son? When he stirs division among the hearts that he should be bringing to Christ as well as to His family?

What do you do when he does not show the example of Christ? When he shows NO HONOR to you or the Lord? When he has spent his lifetime making people believe ill of you? When he has spent his lifetime showing NO loyalty or commitment to His family?

How is his words about us to her honoring to me  or His father? How is he taking counsel and twisting it, honoring?


Isn't one of the commandments Honor thy Father and Mother?

Lord, I so desperately seek Understanding and need you to intervene in my own heart as I struggle with knowing what you have asked me to do, I have done. I struggle with watching as my children turn from the path that you have given us to guide them on. I struggle with understanding how they could say they love the Lord, and slander us with their tongues to others, especially to the ones they so desperately want us to accept. 

Give me strength Lord...


Lord let these Words speak to someones Heart clearly!

Daily scripture and Thoughts

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:11 ESV)

Merry Christmas Dear ones- if it wasn't for the celebration of the birth of Christ- how empty and vain would this Holiday be??? It would be about greed and selfishness and materialism. 
Thank you Jesus for your birth- thank you for sacrifice 

Thank you that we have more celebrate more to focus on! Your son Jesus Christ.

Daily scripture and thoughts

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, (Titus 2:11-13 ESV)

Dear Ones
Do you wonder why you struggle with sin and ungodliness? Why you struggle with lack of self control? Because it is God through His salvation and His grace that trains us to turn away from these things? How? 
First off through your surrender of your hearts and lives to Christ. Secondly through the presents of the Holy Spirit, thirdly through the power of His Word and lastly through the comfort of accoubtablity. 

We can not resist temptation, remain pure or even refrain from our flesh with out all four these intact.

Don't fool yourself thinking you can't have one of these and refrain from sin or turn from it. Those who know the Word and have been given a foundation and live in sin bring a greater condemnation upon themselves because you know the truth and have turn from it.

May this truth open your eyes

Tragedy and loss..


Early Saturday morning my beloved received a phone call from our Pastor and His friend- He needed urgent prayer. He was rushing to the hospital his granddaughter only 5 months old, was not well. He said from the limited information he had that they were saying she had died. When he hung up the phone my beloved laid there for a few minutes not sure what to think. The Holy Spirit prompted him to go to David. He said something to me, and I said go. In the meantime I was trying to contact David's sister - whom I am friends with. I asked her how she was. She called me in tears, so I knew that I was needed as well. We hurried dressed, brushed our teeth, and headed to be there for our Dear Family in Christ.

When we arrived David and His beloved wife were standing by the door and you could see the grief and pain all over their faces. Karen who is always a pillar of strength tried to be strong, and smile, but you could tell the pain. Her smile was one that showed that though she was smiling- she could not understand what was happening and why. David knowing the Word of God said "God is still on the throne, and still sovereign." Saying it in a way not only to encourage us but also to convince His own heart which was breaking with lack of understanding.

How do we make sense of a life that was taken so suddenly?
How do we find an answer to that question that is so often asked and never answered?
How do we find peace in these kind of tragedies?

Dear Ones
I have NO profound answers for you. Truly these are questions we all have and have  asked at one point or another in our walk with the Lord especially in a place or season where there is so much pain and no clear answers.

Looking at this past weekend, one thing is for sure, the LORD is who He says HE IS.. He is sovereign. HE is a wonderful creator, and though that little life left us so quickly, with barely any time to live it. She has left an impact on the hearts who knew and loved her.


Little Angel one day we will stand with you in Heaven- You are now in the arms of the GREATEST FATHER- Glorify to Our Lord.

Daily Scripture and Thoughts


Isaiah 7:14
Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Dear Ones-
This prophecy, as you know, is the prophecy of the coming of our Lord and Savior. The greatest story ever told, the birth of our Savior. How timely is this scripture as we prepare ourselves to celebrate Christmas - the Birth of Christ with family. Truly the world stands still. Christmas morning every soul will be home, opening gifts, unsaved and saved alike, in celebration. Businesses will not open in celebration of this day. ISNT it amazing that though many will open gifts, and many decorate their homes, many will say they don't believe in Christ. If they do not believe then why do they celebrate? Why do they take the time to do what they are doing? Because deep down all souls KNOW that the LORD is who HE says He is. 

Rejoice this year- in WHO Christ is, and what HE has done to give us each a new life!  It's NOT about the presents but about the person who came as a baby to live a life, to die for you and me!

Why do you do what you do??

These questions have been cultivating in my mind and heart for months... 
Why do I do what I do?
Why do I homeschool?
Why do I give the Word?
Why do I counsel my children?
Why do I counsel them according to the Word?
Why do I stand for purity in flesh as well in the heart?
Why do I believe in courtship?
Why do I believe that when people enter a family it is not their place to destroy and interfere in relationships?

Why why why?
I homeschool because I desire for my children to live for Christ. I desire for them to be fed things of righteousness, and to have a fighting chance to go against society in area for the sake of the Cross. 

I give the Word because it what I am expected to do and as a follower of Christ it is my everything. If I am to call myself a believer in Jesus then I am expected to follow in HIS footsteps and live by HIS WORD.

I counsel my children to see them glorify Christ in their lives, To be the men and women of God, and keep them from stumbling around in their faith and in their walk. Determined to do life their way inspite of what the Word of God so clearly states grieves Christ. Example:

Hebrews 13:4
Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

Here  lies the problem... my children know the truth. They have been given the WORD, and yet they continue in sin. Choosing the ways of the World. Fornicating, and having immoral relations without sex and because they are not committing the act of intercourse justifying their sin and standing before the Lord, crucifying our Lord Jesus once again. And again come justifying in saying well "I am not doing anything wrong" or " I am going to marry her" so all this is suppose to wipe the sin away. 

Hebrews 6
4For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt. 7For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God.8But if it bears thorns and thistles, it is worthless and near to being cursed, and its end is to be burned.


Though they have been given the Word, they are producing thorns and thistles in their lives. Their ground has been cultivated. We have discipled them, we have guided them. We have shown them what was immodest in clothing( things that are way to tight or cut way to low or too short), and we have shown them the standard the LORD placed before them in how they are commanded to live as followers of HIM. But yet they forsake IT- with lies of justification and sin.

I continue to counsel my children in the Word because I will stand before a mighty God someday. I will stand for what I have not said, for what I seen and allowed, but I stand for HIS Word and the LORD's righteousness. Not the lies of this world that say-" they must make their own mistakes and live with them" or even the one that so many like to say " you have taught them right,you have to trust what you have taught them " 
Does these things leave me exempt from speaking the truth or setting the boundaries that need to be set when they need to be set? NO as long as some are in my home and those who are not step foot in my home, the WORD of our LORD will go forth, and The standard and guidelines we LIVE by is that very WORD!!!

I stand for purity because the Bible has 53 different bible verses about fornication. The greatest sin we all commit against our Lord is one using our own bodies. 

I believe in Courtship because it was the bible standard used in scripture for a man and a woman to come together. They remained pure till the day they became one. They did not have any physical contact.

My last questions is one I think so many need to take heed - when you enter into a family- it is not your place to fix that family. It is your place to love that family, the good and the bad. You will not understand the dynamic of that family. You WILL  not understand the relationships but it is not your place to intercede in those relationships and change them. Your intercession will do nothing but cause divisions between family members which is wrong.

I pray that the pondering of my heart that someone will be encouraged and enlightened.

Daily Scripture and thoughts

For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (Matthew 18:20 ESV)

Dear Ones
This is why you are not to forsake the assembling of yourselves. This is why you need and should desire to be with the body of Christ. Not only do they guide you and strengthen you but also where two or three are gathered in His name- there He is among them.

What a blessing to know that as we gather together our Lord Savior is there with us. We need HIM- I need HIM to make me strong. To give me answers, to guide me through His truth and help me walk when I just don't feel like it.


Seek Him today- Stop going through the motions!

Daily scripture and thoughts

Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me! (Psalm 27:7 ESV)

This prayer almost seems like a pray of desperation. A cry out pleading for the Lord to answer when He calls. How many times have we done that? We see ourselves in a place of desperation, often times because we have placed ourselves there, and we need to hear a Word from the Lord. We need to hear his voice, for direction, counsel, only when we need it. What about the time all is well? What about the times when we are good and life is good, do we call on His name then?

Dear Ones- our Lord,heavenly Father is the best counselor, best parent and best to seek advice from. He has the truth in Him. He will always steer you towards righteousness, He will guide you towards purity of heart. He will always be sure that you live according to His Word. Too many times the advice we seek feeds the flesh and keeps you from changing or displaying the full truth. 

Cry out to our Lord. He knows already!

Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word. (Psalms 119:114 KJV)

Dear ones
The wonderful thing about the Word is the constant reminder of how wonderful our Lord is. He never changes. His love is selfless and gracious. We are to find our hope and strength in Him as life changes. You can put all your hope in the fact He will not change.

Lord give me strength through the changes, grace for those who need it and mercy for those who don't deserve it.

Daily scripture and thoughts

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV)

What does it mean dear ones to be a new creation?

What does it mean the old has passed away?

As believers in Christ- as we read His Word we are to grow and change. We are to see life differently. We are to be different. We are to be willing to step out and go against the norm and stand on the Word of God and say I will not do that or I will not live in sin. If we are not willing to stand then why do we call ourselves Christians??? Why bother? We make a mockery of the Cross and the sacrifice Christ made. Why care more what others think then what Christ sees in you? When you stand before our Lord then you will wish you would have become new, thought differently and allowed His Word make you new. 

It's not too late to turn from your ways and allow the Word to change you!

Daily scripture and thoughts

Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you too will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise that he made to us—eternal life. (1 John 2:24, 25 ESV)

Dear ones 
Abiding- what does it mean? Abide- to exist, to be, to dwell.

See the Word must live within. It must be a source of life, breathe, and food to you. It must dwell within you that it invades your thought process and your actions.

These Words will pour life into and joy unspeakable. They will penetrate your very heart and soul with His presence and when you face life and situations you face them with His Words and strength that nothing can shake you!

Be strengthened today and allow His Word to guide you when you seek, strengthen you when you are weak and bring you joy when you are sad!

Daily scriptures and thoughts

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! (Psalm 95:1, 2 ESV)

Rejoicing in The Lord, singing to Him true praise and thanksgiving. We have heard how we are to give thanks in all things? Let me ask you how do you give thanks when you have no job and no way of getting providing?

How do give thinks when you hear of all the evil in this world?

How do give thanks in all things?

Dear ones giving thanks should not be mandated or directed by our circumstances. Giving thanks should be directed by how much we love our Lord and Savior. Too many times we allow how we feel to interfere with how we give thanks and how we praise the  King of Kings! Sunday mornings we allow how good the music is to direct how we praise. In situations we allow whether the situation is positive or negative affect how we praise Him.

Do you realize how selfish that is?

Through all things He is always worthy to be praised!

Daily scripture and thoughts

“At that time, declares the Lord, I will be the God of all the clans of Israel, and they shall be my people.” Thus says the Lord : “The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; when Israel sought for rest, the Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. (Jeremiah 31:1-3 ESV)

Through Isreals adulterous hearts The Lord was faithful and desired reconciliation with his people. He has always longed for faithfulness, dedication and love of His children, yet we all so easily wonder from Him. We seek to fulfill ourselves with empty things. Temporary fulfillment. He continues His faithfulness to us inspite of our doubts, and wavering hearts.

Think about how people love, one minute they are so in love, and the next second that love is gone- truth be told loving someone is a choice - not a feeling. Feelings are infatuation or lust not love. The Lord has chosen to love His people, his children inspite of how they love HIM. His love is not based on what we do or how we act.( unlike how we love others )

His love is an everlasting love, a love where He was willing to come to this earth as a baby and die on the Cross..that is true LOVE.

Dear ones  love is one we are to have for our Lord as well as our brothers and sisters. We can't love others based on their actions. We can't love based on circumstances or based on whether they called or act like they care. If that is the conditions to love then we will fail as well. We will not be worthy of love because we do not love others in that way. 

Love as Christ loved that is the command. He loved unto the Cross knowing we would not love him, He loved  us knowing we doubt, and not believe and even justify why we shouldn't love- He loved us in our sin.

Daily scripture and thoughts

By insolence comes nothing but strife, but with those who take advice is wisdom. (Proverbs 13:10 ESV)

Insolence- adjective
1. boldly rude or disrespectful; contemptuously impertinent; insulting: an insolent reply.

How many times in your life have you been bodily rude to someone or disrespectful?

I know one of my triggers, one way my children can set me off is to be disrespectful towards me. Disrespect shows a level of contempt or even disregard to the person who is speaking into you. I believe in my life and actions towards them I have done nothing to deserve that kind of disrespect. Even if I did- how is that fulfilling the commandment to Honor thy father and mother.

Dear ones wisdom is such a gift to be treasured. It is gift of prevention and protection bestowed on you. Why not treasure it? Instead so many resent it.

Proverbs is filled with verses about wisdom and the treasure it is. Read them, meditate and memorize them. For the wisdom being bestow is a gift to guide you!

Daily scripture and thoughts

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground! (Psalm 143:10 ESV)

Often times we desire to know the Will of God. His Will belongs to Him and we must be taught through the Word and the Holy Spirit how to live in His Will. His Will is His to Know and we may desire to know it and live it but we can't and won't if we don't know His Heart. To know the heart of Christ is to know His Will in your life. His Will is for you to lead a life of righteousness, and love as He did. It truly is that simple. Here come the hard part, manifesting that in life. Living life to glorify Him and not yourself, dying to your flesh and sin.

Dear ones knowing the Will of God for your life is knowing the heart of Christ, is surrendering yourself to Him!

Is there an area of your life that you are determined to do your Will not His? Be careful- our will leads into sin and a whole mess!

It is never changes and is steadfast through everything. We can rely on it, lean it and be strengthened by it. We must do two things- believe it and read it!

“Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends. (2 Corinthians 10:17, 18 ESV)

Often times as  you seek approval, and desire for others to tell you how well you are doing. You will go as far as share how good you are doing to tell everyone. But most of the time you are boasting in yourself. How many of you boast in The Lord? How many boast about the Word spoken or the Word you read today? What is your conversation about more? Yourself, all the good you do, or all the good The Lord has done for you through you?

I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. (Psalm 119:11 ESV)


To not sin against our Lord we have to know His Word and most of all we must store them up in our heart so when the attacks come we can fight-those words will appear before our eyes to remind us that the fight is His-  that he has defeated already.
Dear ones are you battling something? How are you fighting? Are you engrossed in scripture? Or are you looking to another to help you feel better? 

My sweet children the one you love can not do that for you! They can not be God in your life!!! They can not fight that fight for you. Only our Lord and Savior can fight that fight - that only he has defeated! How many are lifting their eyes to heaven for help, and strength? Young ladies how many of you encouraging your men to pray when they are struggling or praying with them?? 

You can't be to him or to her what Christ is and will be and is!!!

Daily Scripture and thoughts

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. (John 3:36 ESV)

Two statements are made in this scripture- one we are to believe in the Son. We are to know who He is and what He did. 

Two- we must obey. Obedience is the most important part of this statement and of being a believer in Christ. 

It is not just being good, saying the right things but it is about obedience! It is about reading the Word and obeying the Commandments given by Christ. 

Do you know how many there are?

Dear ones- it is important for you to know. It is important for you to obey Christ not just believe in Him.

How do you see Wisdom?


This morning this has been on my mind- Wisdom- What is it? How do you see it?

Wisdom- 1828 Webster
 The right use or exercise of knowledge; the choice of laudable ends, and of the best means to accomplish them. This is wisdom in act, effect, or practice. If wisdom is to be considered as a faculty of the mind, it is the faculty of discerning or judging what is most just, proper and useful, and if it is to be considered as an acquirement, it is the knowledge and use of what is best, most just, most proper, most conducive to prosperity or happiness. Wisdom in the first sense, or practical wisdom, is nearly synonymous with discretion. It differs somewhat from prudence, in this respect; prudence is the exercise of sound judgment in avoiding evils; wisdom is the exercise of sound judgment either in avoiding evils or attempting good. Prudence then is a species, of which wisdom is the genus.

Proverbs 1:2-7
For learning what wisdom and discipline are;
for understanding insightful sayings;
 for receiving wise instruction
in righteousness, justice, and integrity;
 for teaching shrewdness to the inexperienced,
knowledge and discretion to a young man —
 a wise man will listen and increase his learning,

and a discerning man will obtain guidance
for understanding a proverb or a parable,
the words of the wise, and their riddles.
 The fear of the Lord
is the beginning of knowledge;

fools despise wisdom and discipline


Proverbs 3:13-18
Happy is a man who finds wisdom
and who acquires understanding,
 for she is more profitable than silver,
and her revenue is better than gold.
 She is more precious than jewels;
nothing you desire compares with her.
 Long life is in her right hand;
in her left, riches and honor.
 Her ways are pleasant,
and all her paths, peaceful.
 She is a tree of life to those who embrace her,

and those who hold on to her are happy



Wisdom is suppose to be looked upon as a precious thing, something to be cherished. Is that how you see it? When your parents are sharing their wisdom, their knowledge to guide you- do you see that as a curse or a blessing?

Do you see their heart? They have your best interest in mind, they care about what happens to you, and how many pits you fall into. Why would you desire to fall into those pits? 

We live in such a sadistic world- living lives stating "we must experience it for ourselves", " we need to learn on our own", " the best way to learn is to do it and go through it yourself", why? Where is that in scripture? Have you thought about how your see things and think? Does it line up with scripture are you a result of society, doing what others do, learning as they go, and not seeing the blessing behind the Wisdom given to you through your parents or older wiser counsel. 

Who do you seek counsel from? Older wiser people or people your own age, who doing things as you are doing them??

I wish when I was young I saw the wisdom being bestowed on my life as cherished jewels. I did not have anyone guiding me through scripture. I had no idea what or how precious those words were. Now through the pain, through life, I have come to this place realizing how foolish youth are, and how they take advantage of their youth, their time, the moments the Lord gives them to embrace wisdom, and use it to bring glory to HIM in their lives. 

 SO be it another generation who does not LOVE wisdom or see it as the blessing it is.

Daily scripture and thoughts

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:17 ESV)

Everything you do- everything -how many of us do everything in word or deed? Think of all the things you do all day- it says everything you do in your words or deed - do everything for Him. I wonder if we all took the time to think of all we do, and consciously devoted it to Christ if there would be anything we do that we would not or could not devote to Him because it is sin? Try it today- as you get up say I do this for your Lord Jesus- and see how far you go before you come upon something you can not devote to Him!

Lord I dedicate these Words to you! May I walk with you all day- I give you praise my Lord for all you do in my life. Be with me as I consciously walk with You to do all things in Word or deed to Your glory!
In Jesus name- Amen

Life struggles

Do you ever wonder when the struggle will end? When you will see a time when it just doesn't seem to always be a dog eat dog? Or robbing Peter to pay Paul situation? When will it end?

I often wonder that- and the the inner battle begins.The battle between flesh and spirit. The one speaks to me and reminds me of scripture and convictions and then the other side that reminds me that I am an able body capable of assisting in even a small way. 
This voice in my head reminds me of what I have been called to: caring for my children, schooling my children, guiding them in righteousness and the Word while the other one says if you worked it would help some. 

In so many ways I feel like I am failing. I have no determination or faithfulness in schooling Noah. I have not been diligent in giving him the Word. What has happened to me? 

I know on this side of eternity the battle will never cease. It will always be raging. Why do some in this world seem to not struggle? Why does it seem like their lives are full of ease or contentment? I know it is a facade - it is just a mask.

Lord I am weak and I need you to give me strength for I am falling and failing in so many ways. 

Give me strength.

Daily thoughts and Scripture

Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. (John 16:24 ESV)

Asking in the name of Jesus- that is the kind of power we have, but we must remember that when we ask it must line up with the character and will of God. We can't just ask in His name expecting riches. We can ask in His Name expecting answers, direction,peace and provision.

Remember when we ask in His name- that mighty name of Christ we must be sure that what we are asking for is part of who He is.

Lord let this word embed itself in our hearts so we might hear and know that you are truly a mighty God. Lord you are worthy and you bring peace in time of trouble and strength when we are weak!
Be with all of us this day. Meet our needs -
In Jesus name - Amen

Daily Thoughts and Scripture

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life. And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him. (1 John 5:13-15 ESV)

Many times these scriptures are misinterrupted. People use them as an incantation to their fleshly desires. Saying but I asked accoring to His will or another translations says accoring to the name of Jesus but truth be told you must know the heart of Christ. His heart is not to give us riches unending but just what we need so that we can survive. He does not desire to answer prayers that woul lead us away from Him. His desire is to get us to  place of knowing who we are without HIM, and to need HIm more than life or breath.


Believe it when I say that The Lord loves you and deisres  to be with ou always, an desires for you to know Him. If you desires to know God's will. To know what HE would have you do, you must know the WORD. The Word guides us with all truth and shows us exactly what HE would have us do in all things!


Dear Ones to Know God's will you must know the voice of God in turn you must know the Word.

Daily scripture and thoughts

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; (Psalm 130:5 ESV)

Sometimes as we seek to do God's will and pray we have to wait. In today's day waiting is agony. Imagine the time of letters, where you sent a letter with a message that was in need of a response, no telephones or email for instant response. You waited and waited anxiously for a return letter to be brought by the postman. Often times when we are seeking for an answer from The Lord we must wait- wait in anticipation, wait in torment it seems but wait we must for His answer is worth the wait.

In the meantime as we wait as we pray, we will find the hope and strength we need in His Word.

Dear Ones if you are in a season of wait, find your hope and strength in His Word because He truly is the strength you need. The Wait is never long when you realize whatever you are waiting upon is eternity!
