    Jesus Prayed For You

    Following my Morning Prayer, I grabbed a cup of coffee, and scrolled through the Newsfeed on Face Book. When I came upon a friend’s post asking this question, “Did you know that Jesus prayed for you? Go check it out in John 17.” I was curious and grabbed my Bible and read John 17. I was blown away in that Our Lord Jesus prayed for us before his arrest and crucifixion. How did I miss this for all these years? I had heard the Scriptures so many times regarding the Last Supper, Crucifixion, and the Resurrection, but somehow I had missed the middle part on the night Jesus prayed in…

    Our Hope is in the Lord

    2 Thessalonians 2:13-17 “But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as first fruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and…

    A Broken Heart

    Psalm 109:22 “For I am afflicted and needy, And my heart is wounded within me.” Most of us in the world today are walking around with a broken heart. A heart that has been rejected, disappointed, or experienced a loss of someone or something. Is there any wonder to why our world is broken? You and I do not have to walk around with a broken heart. Christ wants to heal our hearts. Ez. 36:26 “Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” What does…

    You Are Beautiful!

    Years ago, I did facials for a cosmetic company. The women would usually comment about their imperfections during the facial. The funny thing is I never saw it! I would feel sad to hear how critical they were regarding their natural beauty. 1 Peter 3:3-4 “Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” What would your day be like if you could truly let down your guard and be yourself? This…

Today, is a reminder of God’s promises found in 2 Corinthians 9:8, “Moreover, God is able to make every grace abundant for you, so that in all things, always having all you need, you may have an abundance for every good work.” Print this verse out and hang it where ever you are hanging out , such as laundry room, kitchen, work, swimming pool with kids, whatever. Remember God loves you and He is with you. Go out and pass it on, for He has abundantly equipped you for great work.…

    My Joy Comes in Believing

    Romans 15:13 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Believing is accepting and trusting in God. It is truth. Today truth is a rare commodity. How do we find truth in the Scriptures. When we read God’s Word we begin to know Him, and as a result we are inspired to speak to Him through prayer. His Word inspires us to move closer to Him. Truth becomes evident and the desires to bring Him Glory begin to unfold. What is happening or not happening in your life right now…

    The Decision

    John 15:5-8 “I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me will be thrown out like a branch and wither; people will gather them and throw them into a fire and they will be burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you. By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.” When at a crossroads in life, and discernment seems difficult, there are…
