    A Lesson Learned from Manasseh

    The Bible, God’s Holy Word, is truly a source from which we can glean lessons on a daily basis.

He reigned a total of 55 years. (vs. 1) He was a king that did evil in the sight of the Lord. (vs. 2) Here’s a few truths to take away from II Chronicles 33… 1. When we do wrong, we also influence others to do wrong. God’s Word says, that “Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to…

    Good Morning, Lord!

    “My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.” – Psalm 5:3 KJV This simple Bible verse of David’s psalm spoke volumes to my heart this week.

    5 Bible Verses on Using Our Words Well

    During this time of dealing with being cooped up inside due to the quarantine, I think WORDS have become more essential than ever… They have become our main source of connecting with each other during a time where we may not be able to physically gather together in groups and social activities. Our very WORDS can be a fountain of encouragement to those who are sick, depressed, discouraged and lonely. Here’s FIVE Bible verses on using our WORDS well… “Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.” – Proverbs 16:24 kjv Think about what you can do to encourage someone else each day…

    Be Content.

    It was last Saturday that I had my first little meltdown about this whole corona virus quarantine situation… I wasn’t crying over materialist things that I didn’t have or couldn’t have, but rather, it was the fact that life has changed so drastically. I wanted to go see my parents. I wanted to be in church and Sunday school. I wanted to go see the sweet people from our nursing home ministry. Despite being an introvert, I WANTED to be around people! It was shortly after this meltdown when I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, that I saw a grim photo that instantly stilled my heart and made it…
