    God is Thinking About Us

    For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. ~ Jeremiah 29:11 KJV When I was 19, before heading off to Bible college, a sweet lady made me an embroidery-stitched picture with the Bible verse, Jeremiah 29:11. I’m embarrassed to admit it, but at the time I had no clue what the Bible verse really meant. As I began to grow more spiritually in Bible college by continually reading and hearing God’s Word, my spiritual understanding deepened. I remember coming home for a visit from college and glancing at the Bible verse hanging…

    Let’s Leap, Let’s Leap!

    Did you know that LEAPING is a biblical activity? It’s amazing the challenges that you and I are able to LEAP over by the grace and help of God.  He gives us the power and strength to do what we cannot do on our own. With God’s help, you can climb over those steep mountains. You can traipse through those huge obstacles. You can pass over the solid,  brick walls in front of you. With God’s help, you can! David said in Psalm 18:29 (kjv), “For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.” The definition for LEAP is “to jump…

    I Shall Not Be Moved — Are You Planted Deeply in Your Christian Faith?

    The first chapter of Psalms tells us of one who is strong, well-rooted, grounded, productive, prosperous… not easily moved in their Christian faith. “And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”  – Psalm 1:3 KJV ALL needs are met for this well-planted tree…the nourishment of sun and a continual supply of water for the roots.  Because the roots are healthy, the tree is able to be firmly and deeply planted. Think today about your own spiritual life… Are you planted deeply with a good foundation?…

    Pray for America – Every Time You See Our USA Flag

    We’re having a great Sunday here today.  The weather is perfect for a July summer day. On the way to church I saw a HUGE, American flag waving in the wind.  It was so beautiful and grand! I prayed for America right away….and decided right then in there….every time I see our USA flag I’m going to pray for America! Prayer changes things! Would you launch that mission with me? *Pin on Pinterest:  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/138204282290014924/ Ask your children to get involved.  Ask them to remind your family to say a quick prayer for America every time they see a flag. Pray for our leaders, too.  Pray that God grants them wisdom…

    Sunday’s Memory Verse: Study to Shew Thyself Approved unto God

    Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. ~ II Timothy 2:15 I let my hubby choose today’s topic, and he thought I Timothy 2:15 would be the perfect fit.  He said people today really need to get back into the Word of God.  Just carrying it to church on Sunday is not going to cut it.  So many people aren’t reading, nor studying God’s Holy Word!  It’s so very important to becoming Christ-like… God’s Holy Word does these 5 things: – Helps to purify and cleanse us, renews our mind (John 17:17, Ephesians 5:26, Ephesians 4:23)…
