Today I was reading Psalm 143 – Hear my prayer, O Lord; give ear to my pleas for mercy!  In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness! 2 Enter not into judgment with your servant, for no one living is righteous before you. 3 For the enemy has pursued my soul; he has crushed my life to the ground; heContinue Reading

That may be a weird word for today – but in God’s Word, we are told to be thankful in ALL things! The only way to do this, is to focus on God. God is good – I am almost surprised (but I shouldn’t be – because He IS Faithful!),Continue Reading

Today I am in Psalm 5. It is a total outpouring to God in times of trouble. Do you pray? Are you pouring your heart out to God? Talking to Him about your fears and worries? Are you drawing on the One who can give you peace and strength toContinue Reading

“Let not your hearts be troubled.” I wasn’t even sure how to start this post. My mind is sort of muddled right now, (I just checked, looks like I have a slight migraine to account for my trouble in focusing). But I looked again at the beginning of this passageContinue Reading

Everyday I am reminded of how God loves us! Today as I was reading in Psalms 36, I wanted to highlight the last half of the chapter – it is so good…. Psalms 36:5-10 Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. 6 Your righteousness isContinue Reading

Right now, our world is full of fear. A lot of people are in a panic. But God’s Word is a comfort to us during times of trouble! Just now, I finished reading Psalm 35. I copy and paste it in Day One on my iPad. Then I “bold” (noContinue Reading

I am humbled to be God’s servant – I am thankful that I can reach out to you. For awhile, God has led, and continues to lead me in an online, digital ministry. I have been doing this for such a long time and sometimes I wonder if it isContinue Reading

Do you spend time daily in God’s Word? What do You do? Do you do the same thing year in, year out? Or do you change it up a bit from time to time? I do change mine up a bit, to keep it fresh.
 For awhile, I have beenContinue Reading

For the past 6 months, God has been speaking to me about “Being still”. It has been so many times in His Word that I have seen the concept of being still, waiting on the Lord etc. It has really had me thinking about how busy my life is andContinue Reading

In the morning, especially if I wake up early, I look at my Facebook feed. It gives me a chance to look at what is happening and opportunities to pray for people as well. I do this as I am waking up (I may be up, but my brain isContinue Reading

In Church, we recently started going through the book of Ephesians. One of the challenges our Pastor had was for us to read through the whole book, twice each week. Since it is only 6 chapters, not a hard task. I really like to listen to the Bible using theContinue Reading

What does that mean for you? Are you starting a “New Year’s Resolution”? New Routines? New goals? I do like thinking about being refreshed, renewed. It is a time to look at what you did last year, and what you would like to see happen this year. It’s the 1stContinue Reading
