The

Fear of the Lord

mobilizes us
but
the fear of man

paralyzes us.

We must constantly seek the Lord's wisdom

as we make decision.

~

To Fear of the Lord means

to respect who he is, what he is, and what he says...

and by our submission and obedience

show him that we love him and want to please him.

God is . . .

God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Consider visiting our Trinity page.

God's love toward me

is not just a warm feeling that he has for me.

The Love of Jesus

was shown in great drops of blood

shed for me on the cross.

It was shown in taking upon himself all my sins.

He suffered on my behalf.

My love for Jesus

cannot be

just

a warm feeling in my heart.

That is not true love for God.

Jesus said,

"If you love me, you will obey me."

Dedication is a part of our love of God.

Loving Father,

With all the hustle bustle of the holiday season, I am stopping right now and spending some warm moments with you.

You are the most important thing in my life. You are my Alpha and my Omega. You are the beginning and the ending of each of my days.

You made me, and I am your delight.

And Lord…… I delight in you.

I pray for those who face a difficult family situation at Christmas.

And I pray for those who face family members who are unkind.

I ask for supernatural ability and overcoming grace to help them through unpleasant encounters.

October Thoughts

How do Christians today measure up
to the first Christians? 


Do we keep our convictions in the face of being laughed at, talked about unfairly, and ostracized?

Or

Do we change our values as society changes its values? 


For example:


Do we enjoy glorification of witchcraft in books and movies
or do we shun it?


Do we judge a movie by God’s standards
or do we
justify nudity and immoral behavior as acceptable?


Do we turn away
from dark, occultic entertainment
or embrace it?

Are we bold in our beliefs or have we become lukewarm?

God's Great Forgiveness


September 24, 2023

I have a wonderful friend who loves the Lord.

We enjoy

sitting on her porch and talking about Jesus.

One day she told me that

when the devil's demonic ones

try to

give her thoughts of

worry or fear,

she says,

"Not Now - Not Now."

I now take her advice.

I call it the "Not Now" strategy.

Try it.

The Gospel is offensive to our sinful nature.

The Gospel message

of sincere repentance and obeying God's Word

is in opposition to a sinful way of life.


The Gospel message is in opposition to
what the world teaches.

The Bible says in
James 4:4 b NASB

Do you not know that
friendship with the world
is
hostility toward God?
Therefore whoever wants to be a
friend of the world
makes himself an enemy of God.

Jesus said 

"If you love me you will obey me."

As many of you know,

Dr. Charles Stanley has died.

He is being called

"Everybody's Pastor."

Millions of people listened to him on T.V. and radio.
And thousands went to his church.

I went to his church for several years.
So he literally was my pastor for years.

He strongly upheld the Bible and its principles. 

May his passing remind all of us
that one day
we will leave this earth and face God.

May we live each day in light of that thought.

Each day,
may we all seek to love God dearly
and follow him closely.

And I pray that they would perceive

Reflection for Easter


April 9, 2022

God has been working with me on

being more patient and joyful.

He has nudged me to find the amusement

in frustrating situations

instead of reacting with

impatience.

A simple example...

I'm running late and 

as I am trying to do something, I drop my pen -

I pick it up and drop it again.

But

I choose to see the humor in the situation

not the frustration.

I choose to be lighthearted.

That decision is especially a challenge when driving.

I can

choose to pray for other drivers instead of getting angry.


God is right beside us all day long.

God doesn't want to endure

an agitated, frustrated follower

but instead

delight in a happy, joyful one.

-

Right after I posted this
I walked into the kitchen and God gave me a test.
I passed it by being lighthearted.  Then moments later, I was tested again. I said out-loud, "Again? I just passed that test!"
Even so - I intentionally found some humor in the situation
and laughed.... How about you?

Proverbs 18:17 says,

 "Any story sounds true

until

someone tells the other side

and sets the record straight."

This verse is important to keep in mind when dealing with our family members - especially children. We need to be careful not to jump to conclusions. We need to ask our loved ones their side of the story before we decide a matter.

This verse is also important when we are watching the news. Too often our opinions are formed (and then set in stone) by the person or news organization
where we first hear about

a certain topic, situation, event
or proposed bill to be voted on.

Alarming!

The majority of young adults say

Jesus is not the only way of salvation.

More than 60% of born again Christians in America between the ages of 18 and 39 believe that Buddha, Muhammad and Jesus are all valid paths to salvation and over 30% say they either believe that Jesus sinned just like other people when He lived on Earth or aren’t sure, according to a new study.

https://www.christianpost.com/news/60-of-young-adults-say-jesus-isnt-the-only-way-to-salvation.html?clickType=link-most-popular

Think about it...

If there is another way - then Jesus didn't have to die.


August 29, 2021

Even the children of Christians

are turning away from the God of the Bible.

We must take the opportunity to teach our children and grandchildren about the Bible through reading Bible stories, showing Bible videos, memorizing Scripture, putting on the full armor of God and praying together with them. We must play Christian music around our house and show our little loved ones that we are serious about following Jesus.

Consider our Psalm pages for your teen.
Read and study WITH them!
And - Consider our purity pages.


It has never been harder to be a Christian in the U.S.A. and it is not easy for those around the world.

Do not love this world

nor the things it offers you,

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world,

but let God transform you into a new person

Then you will learn to know God’s will for you,

which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Romans 12:2 NLT version



August 15, 2021

(This was August 2 but I am reposting here.)


How can a person know if

he or she is going to heaven

when he or she dies?

Look to 1 John 2:4 - 6 for the answer....

"Someone may say, 'I am a Christian.

I am on my way to heaven;

I belong to Christ.'

But if he doesn't do what Christ tells him to,

he is a liar.

But those who do what Christ tells them to

will learn to love God more and more.

That is the way to know whether or not

you are a Christian.

Anyone who says he is a Christian

should live as Christ did."

We show honor and value to a person

when we focus on his or her strengths.

We show dishonor to a person

when we focus on his or her weaknesses.


On the rare times that God calls us

to come to a person and address his or her

weaknesses or sins,

we need to pray and get in the right mind-set

and then talk to the person in love and gentleness

by gently informing and not attacking - 

and while avoiding anger and sourness in our tone.


In Matthew 7:1-5, Jesus gives us an illustration about

informing others of their sin and he uses a foreign object in

the eye to represent sin...

Jesus teaches us to first learn how to take foreign objects out of our own eye before we attempt to take the foreign objects out of our neighbor's eye......

When you take something out of your eye, you are gentle. God teaches us to be gentle when addressing the sins and weaknesses of others - as though we are picking out a foreign object from our own eye - that is gentle!

And those of us who have faced our own weaknesses and sins -  and have worked on improving our Christian walk -  know that WE need grace from people and grace & help from God. And therefore, at some point in our spiritual growth, we put two and two together and realize that we need to approach others in gentleness.
This is your wake up call if you have not realized that yet.


Yes, we have to confront (judge) others sometimes.

 An Amazing Video

A woman thought

her first bridal dance was ruined.

But it wasn't.

She just needed to stay calm and not panic.

We who love Jesus are the Bride of Christ.

When awful things happen,

we can remember this video and realize that

Jesus our Bridegroom

can do the impossible

to fix our broken hearts

and messed up situations

if we give him time.




And the lyrics to the song

can inspire us to intentionally

dance through life

with joy -

dance like we've never been

hurt and we've never been sad.

We can listen to the lyrics and decide to dance

while we wait on Jesus to make things right.

Jesus doesn't want yesterday to ruin our today.

Take note:

The groom had a surprise for his bride,

and Jesus has surprises for His Bride.

Lord,

your love and devotion for me

makes me want to reach out and love the world.



Lord of Love,

Remind me to be a miracle this day.

Nudge me, Lord, as I begin to pass by a person who needs a smile.

Direct my attention to an elderly person who is struggling as he or she is going through a door.

Make sure I notice the tired mother with a fussy child who would be thankful if I let her go ahead of me in the grocery line.

Bring to my mind a relative who would delight to receive a phone call from me.

Give me creative thoughts of things I can do for the children of my church to make an ordinary worship day - a day of celebration.

Lord, teach me how to be a walking miracle.

In Jesus' name I pray,

Amen

A September Prayer

 to our Lord

written by a

Visitor to our Site


Jesus,

I humbly come before you eager to spend my day with you. 

I know when I start my day connecting with you it is much easier to hear your voice. 

As I quiet my mind, let me hear you whisper my name,

calling me your beloved,

reminding me that you love every moment

that we get to spend together.

  Lord, you deserve my first and my best everyday,

so I am working

to love you as you commanded, with all my heart,

all my soul, and all my mind.  Guide and direct me, so I can

use my talents and treasures

to honor you,

knowing all that I am and all that I have is because of you.

I pray this in your beautiful name,

Amen

As we move closer to God, we become less selfish.

As we move further from God, we become more selfish.


I follow close behind you,

protected by your strong right arm. 

Psalm 63:8 TLB

Loving Lord,

Let my life be of value to other people.

Help me to fashion my day so that

I give blessings

to those you have put on my heart

and

to those you have put in my path.

Amen

Have a Problem?

Sometimes you just need a manual.

In 2020, I suggest we need an

e-manual.

~ ~

We have e-books.

We have e-commerce.

But what we really need is an

Emmanuel!


Have you ever searched for a manual

to help you fix a problem?

Even before looking for a manual, the first place

we should look is to

Emmanuel



Jesus is called "Emmanuel" or "Immanuel"

which means "God with us."


June 27, 2020

The Bible is a guidebook,

a blueprint,

a road map.

It is an e-manual (Emmanuel = God with us).


We get lost in the woods

without frequently consulting the Bible.


Psalm 119:18-20 TLB

teaches us to say:

Lord,

 

18 Open my eyes to see wonderful things

in your Word. 

19 I am but a pilgrim here on earth:

how I need a map—

and your commands are my chart and guide.

 20 I long for your instructions

more than I can tell.

Celebrating

The Wonders of God.


Dear Lord,

I praise you for you are an Amazing Artist.
You are the Master Painter of our World.

From your palette, you brushed the world with splashes of forest green, sky blue, and sunny yellow.

You created lush jungles of jade and arid deserts of gold.

You formed majestic mountains, and then you took scoops of brilliant white snow and topped their peaks.

You shaped multi-layered canyons and adorned them with copper-colored hues.

Your exquisite creation is vibrant and full of variety.

Joy and thankfulness rise in me as I meditate on the beauty of your world.

Amen

I will sing of the lovingkindness of the Lord forever;

The Lord always leads us toward righteousness.

So if we are following him,

we will go toward righteousness.
