Showing posts from April, 2014

Where did April go?

My Word for 2014 – DO! I usually write my monthly wrap up post a few days in advance. But this month slipped away.  It's been a strong spiritual month. I went places with the Lord that were hard to swallow. I asked for more and I received more.  But those gifts brought more revelation.  Frankly, it hurt...because I continue learning lessons I thought I knew. I celebrated His deep commitment to humanity, which resulted in His crucifixion. I felt His deep love. I don't want my Easter love to end. One thing for sure, each day I must hang on to Him for nourishment on all levels. I learned that I have much to learn.  He is powerful.  He is sovereign.  It was a month of deep theological shift in my belief. That started earlier this year and it continues.  It was a month of deep ministry to patients and others. It was a strong social media ministry month. It was a strong month caring for those I love. But I can always do much more.  The do word

This Holy Season is the foundation of our Christian faith - 1 Corinthians 15:19-23

Holy Saturday WHAT CHRIST DID IS MAGNIFICENT - 1 Corinthians 15:19-23 1 Corinthians 15:19 If our hope in Christ is for this life only, we should be pitied more than anyone else in the world. 20 But Christ has truly been raised from the dead— the first one and proof that those who sleep in death will also be raised.  21 Death has come because of what one man did, but the rising from death also comes because of one man.   22 In Adam all of us die. In the same way, in Christ all of us will be made alive again.  23 But everyone will be raised to life in the right order. Christ was first to be raised . When Christ comes again, those who belong to him will be raised to life, ...  Thank You for giving us hope and life.  Wow, GOD.  When this season is but a distant memory, I never want to forget Your great sacrifice.   Thank You doesn't seem sufficient... Thank You for Christ.  Thank You for Easter. Thank You for your word.

I failed again - Proverbs 16:2

Proverbs 16:2 The Voice Even when you think you have good intentions,     He knows your real motives. I’m writing to remember that I still have a hard time humbling myself. I fail to love as the Lord loves me. I know what’s required of me. But I failed. I have no excuses. I have fallen short…again. So the next time I think I know. I don’t. But knowing what I know this day, I will go in His power. I will accept His grace, and I will try to love as He loves…again.

March ahead with confidence in God’s word. - Scriptures for my daughter

I believe in celebrating birthdays and feasting with family and friends. I also think the best thing any parent can do is pray for and encourage their children daily. During March I posted Scriptures each day honoring my daughter’s birthday.  My sole purpose in doing this is to remind her that our every need is answered by God and we see evidence of it in His word, the Bible.  Proverbs 22:6. Thanks to the ministry of Bible Gateway for providing online Scripture.   Jude 1:2 The Voice (VOICE) 2  Kindness, peace, love—may they never stop blooming in you and from you. Numbers 6:24-26 Living Bible (TLB) 24-26  ‘May the Lord bless and protect you; may the Lord’s face radiate with joy because of you; may he be gracious to you, show you his favor, and give you his peace.’ Psalm 139:17-18 Living Bible (TLB) 17-18  How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are thinking about me constantly! I can’t even count how many times a day your thoughts turn toward me.
