    The Best Part of Waking Up

    Bible, I thought, “This is like my morning coffee!” Then that little jingle from Folgers, “The Best Part of Waking Up“…inspired me to make this photo this morning. We need God’s Word to wake up…and it makes the day ahead seem possible when we know God is in charge! If you agree… Pin to Pinterest and share on Facebook to let others know how you feel! 🙂 ]]>

    Day 40 – Break Up Your Fallow Ground: For It Is Time to Seek the Lord

    “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.” Hosea 10:12 kjv Today is the last day of my 4o Day Prayer Challenge which included focusing more on prayer and blogging about prayer here at HCH.  But, today is not the end of my prayer journey, but rather, the beginning.  I’ve learned a lot by centering my focus on one area of my life that needed more attention. In our busy society, it’s hard to stay focused; we have so much going on in our lives.  Try challenging yourself to…

Couldn’t they see that I…

    Day 38 – God Blesses When We Fear Him and Do Right

    Day 38 “And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.” Exodus 1:21 kjv Yay!  Another Sunday is upon us and an opportunity to go to the House of the Lord to worship! In the middle of the night on my trip to the bathroom, I thanked the Lord for my house, and immediately after I did so, Exodus 1:21 came to my mind.  There’s a nice golden nugget to share. It’s clear that God blessed the midwives for doing right! Despite the fact that they were asked to do such evil mischief by the King of Egypt, they feared God and did NOT…

    Day 37 – What Does Your Testimony Say to the World?

    Day 37 Good  morning!  I’ve just grabbed my coffee and enjoying the quiet peaceful Saturday morning…and want to share with you some tidbits from my morning Bible reading from Daniel Chapter 3.  It’s stuffed full of tiny golden nuggets! Daniel had such a great testimony.  My question is do I have a good testimony before others?  I always feel that there’s room for improvement so I aim to learn as much as possible from our great Bible heroes.  Daniel is a great example for us to learn from… 1.  Daniel had a testimony of an excellent spirit. “Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent…
