A Flawless Shield

Day 7 It’s always interesting to me to hear Christians talk about God as though He has faults and failures and limitations — like us humans. They believe their situation will never change, or if it does they won’t like it even more, so they say things such as, “well, that’ll never work or that’llContinue reading “A Flawless Shield”

He Can Do All Things…but fail

Click on the photo to listen to song Day 6 The thing about God is He is all things — comforter, healer, friend, guide, counselor, creator, and warrior. I have turned to Him for all these traits. But this year I am looking to Him to be my warrior. He has never lost a battle.Continue reading “He Can Do All Things…but fail”

His Love Endures Forever

Day 5 Have you ever struggled with what to pray? Or whether or not you are praying “correctly?” Or even if you are praying for the right things to happen in your life? My BSGs are doing a study by Charles F. Stanley called 30 Life Principles. Life Principle #1 is: Our intimacy with GodContinue reading “His Love Endures Forever”

God Is My Rock

Day 4 I really admire people who have the gift of poetry. To be able to take everyday life and turn it into a beautiful metaphor. Or, just make clear a concept in a few simple words. I found this beautiful poem about what God is that I thought you might enjoy! He is ourContinue reading “God Is My Rock”

Praise God From Whom All Blessing Flow

DAY 2 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;Praise Him, all creatures here below;Praise Him above, ye heav’nly host;Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost! About 22 years ago I started regularly attending church. As my husband’s family was Presbyterian, we decided to also join our local Presbyterian church. This Doxology, as it is called, wasContinue reading “Praise God From Whom All Blessing Flow”

Bless The Lord

Day 1 This is not the praise song I intended to start with. You see, I looked at this beautiful video and then moved on to others. But every single time I tried to copy the other URLs into this post this video kept getting copied instead. A few dozen frustrating times later I realizedContinue reading “Bless The Lord”

Clean Feet

Did you realize that Jesus, in the upper room before His death, cleansed all the disciples’ feet.  By all I mean even Judas’ – the betrayer.  Jesus, however, made it clear that not all of the disciples had been cleansed. “Those who have had a bath (cleansing of the spirit) need only to wash their feet (toContinue reading “Clean Feet”

Gather As Many As Possible

In a world that seems so divided do you know the one experience we will all have?  We will all die.  Sounds uplifting doesn’t it?  And although God doesn’t want us to dwell on our impending death, He does want us to know the truth of our life – that one day it will end.  We won’t know theContinue reading “Gather As Many As Possible”

Wave Your White Flag

What battles are you facing right now? For me it’s my fears about the direction the country is going. I am a patriot through and through. I’m not a fan of people who twist history to meet their needs for victimization. That may not sit well with people but I will not judge others forContinue reading “Wave Your White Flag”

Persistence

Where do you place the idea of “persistence” in your life? In God’s realm it is one of the most highly touted human characteristics..Persistence gets us to grab hold of the life God wants for us. It molds us into better people. Persistence takes us over the finish line when we continually pray in worship,Continue reading “Persistence”
