Rejoice



Have you ever run into a Christian who seemed absolutely miserable? Every comment they make is negative, and they seem like the joy of the Lord has left. Life is overwhelming and this world in many ways has nothing to offer but pain, misery and sin.  Dear Ones, let me encourage you and remind you that all creation sings praises to our Lord. When we rejoice in Him through our trials, He is faithful to renew our strength. When we give Him thanksgiving in all circumstances, He is faithful to give us His grace in those circumstances.  Rejoice in The Lord, dear Ones, knowing that He is the giver of peace! Allow God to move in you and through you and do not allow your circumstances to keep you from being joyful. Let me challenge you to reflect on things above. Make a list of blessings.. And praise God for those things. Thank you Lord for another day to share your Word of Truth. Thank you for journeying with me- Angie

To live for Christ


As a Believer living for Christ directed by His Word is how we are suppose to live. When you examine your life, can you say that you live and breathe for Christ? If we all honestly examine our lives, we try to throw Christ in every once in a while, maybe just once a week, on Sunday. Dear saints the greatest gift given to us is Christ. Our hearts should be completely dedicated to Christ and our lives should reflect that dedication. Lord, forgive me when my life does not reflect this verse. When my life becomes more about me, than glorifying your Holy Name. Give me strength to live for you.

Casting your cares




Casting your cares. What does that mean? I envision someone taking a rock and throwing it into this enormous lake, never to be seen again. Taking our cares and casting it into the sea of Our Lord, who always cares. The unfortunate part is we think someone cares when they do what we want or what we ask. Not so, the God who cares has heard all you ask of Him in prayer, but remember He knows the future and He knows what is best for you. He is working for your good, so that you may bring Him glory in your life.  
Remember that if "we trust the Lord for our soul, then we can trust Him to care for us in all situations." (Paraphrased from morning and evening by Charles Spurgeon) 

Thank you for journeying with me. -Angie

Devote


As we begin a new year, most start with "new year's resolutions" or promises to be more fit physically, or to change something in their lives.  The last thing thought of is our relationship with Jesus Christ. How many resolve to be closer to Him? How many resolve to read more of the Bible? Or to seek in prayer God's face more? No those aren't the resolutions we seek to make. Today in our scriptures it says DEVOTE Yourself... what does that mean? According to the dictionary devote means: to give up or appropriate to or concentrate on a particular pursuit, occupation, purpose, cause, etc.

To appropriate by or as if by a vow; set apart or dedicate by a solemn or formal act; consecrate.


Dear Saints, let us Devote ourselves this year to be a praying people. To seek Christ with all our hearts with all our souls and with all our minds. 

May 2017 be a year where we journey through scripture together, praying, learning, and growing. Thank you for journeying with me- Angie

The Lord regretted



I couldn't imagine the disappointment, The hurt or even the anger the LORD felt towards the human race. At this point the Savior has not come, man has no Holy Spirit, man is making sacrifices for the atonement of sin, communion with God is not within, but external. Man is left to his own understanding and the heart is wicked. The Lord regretted that He made human beings. He regretted it so much that He made plans to wipe the earth except for one man and his family. Noah stood out to God. Mocked by man, Noah remained faithful to His God in spite of what was happening in His society. He lived out God's commands, finding favor with God.  God decided to protect Him. 

Today in a land where it doesn't seem much is different when it comes to sin and lack of righteousness, are you, dear Christian, standing up and standing out for righteousness sake? Are you seeking the favor of God over the acceptance of man? Rest assured God is watching and knows your heart. In Christendom today we cannot tell the Believer apart from the non believer. Why? Because they act alike. They manifest  the same heart, but one lives believing He is set free and lives according to the ways of the world. Dear one this should not be. If God was to wipe the world of all humans again (which I know He won't because He made a promise) would you be His Noah? Would He find favor with you and save you? Or would you drown with the rest? 

Dear Saints seek to find favor with God, not man. Seek to glorify Him in words and deeds. Stay strong. Thank you for journeying with me- Angie

The Light of The World




The light without it we would not have life. A gift given to us that we just take advantage of. When the night comes, we just close our eyes, knowing in the morning the sun will bring light. We never give it a thought. We have been given another of light. The greatest gift of light,The Light of this World- Jesus Christ. If it was not for Him we could not see our darkness. His Light cleanses us, and brings light to the shadows of our hearts. Dear Saints if it was not for the Light of the World we would have no hope, we would remain in the darkness of our sin. Praise Jesus today for the sun that lights the sky, but Praise Him mostly for His Light that lights our souls and heart! Thank you for journeying with me- Angie
