Time has just flown by the election was just a few months ago but looking back it almost seems as though it has been a lot longer than that. No matter your political views it is easy to get caught up with the negatives that seem to come with politics. The thing that is so great about this country is that we have the freedom to choose who we will vote for, but is that…"What’s great about my country?"
When we first meet Mary, the sister of Martha, she is seated at the feet of Jesus (Luke 10:39). As you recall from scripture, she just couldn’t get enough of Him! She even ignored the wrath of her sister so she could hang on His every word. I can identify with how she felt. Can you? There is nothing like how we feel when our faith is strong and filled with awe. There is just…"Are You Sitting at His Feet?"
Who are you…. Really???? This is a question that gets lost in the hustle and bustle of the life that we have lived, are living and hope to live. I don’t know about you, but I tend to measure myself based on those around me and usually it is the people who have hurt me. I am sure that you do the same; take a minute and think about someone from your past, who comes…"Stop Identity Theft"
Amazing isn’t it how our minds work? I actually think that they do not work because the negative thoughts that cloud our mind on a daily basis are not of God. Even a mind as great as Mark Twain must have been plagued with doubts as he stated in this quote” I have been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.” I have an overly active imagination and tend…"Your Thoughts are showing"
If you are anything like me taking time for myself has got to be the hardest thing to do. I remember growing up seeing my mom take care of everyone else but had little regard for herself. After she died I found that journals that she wrote talking about the extreme loneliness she felt because no one seemed to care about her. After reading these I began to question the way that I was handing…"Take time for yourself"
An attitude is a choice and that choice can easily be affected by the people, events and other things around us, so the question is why would anyone choose to have a bad attitude? I believe that the enemy has told us one big lie, and it is the reverse of “That golden rule” that we are most familiar with, instead of: “Do unto others as you would want done unto you“, it…"Attitude of Gratitude"
I must say that at first the topic for today was very disheartening as I do not have a spouse to be joyful about and then it occurred to me that while I do not have one right now that just as God promised in Genesis 2:18 (KJV), “it is not good for me to be alone; he has made a help meet for me.” I simply have to rely on the promise that He…"Your Mate"
Growing up I have always been happy, I even had a bumper sticker that said “Do it for giggles.” This has been my greatest gift from God is the joy that dwells within me. That joy? The Holy Ghost! Romans 15:13 (KJV) Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. I have always tried…"The Joy of Curiosity"
How many times has that snake satan came after you and the fear has either paralyzed you or caused you to flee? That is not what God told us that we were supposed to do. 1 Peter 5:8-9 Common English Bible (CEB) Be clearheaded. Keep alert. Your accuser, the devil, is on the prowl like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith. Do so in the knowledge that…"Chase that snake satan away."
I find the human mind to be so interesting; and I am certain that I am not alone. Countless studies have been done to try to “figure” it out, yet I believe that no matter how much we study the mind we will never be able to truly grasp it. Our mind can be wonderful, even “magical”; the things that we can dream up and create. The advancements that mankind has made just in a…"You Dirty RAT….. The Joy of Being Battle Ready"
