Have You Learned to Be Anxious for Nothing but Grateful for Everything?

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:6 Have you learned to be anxious for nothing but thankful for everything? Taking time to show God gratitude is important because He deserves to be praised, is a jealous God and does not go where He is not welcome. As Christians, we are to celebrate Jesus Christ and not tolerate Him. Be grateful…

IS THERE A RIGHT AND A WRONG WAY TO STUDY THE BIBLE?

My previous experience and common method of studying the bible involves reading bible scriptures coupled with other bible reference material when a further explanation was desired. Recently I started reading one of my late mom’s bible’s, (The Daily Bible, NIV by Harvest House Publishers), the New International Version), along with my traditional King James bible. I like the “The Daily Bible” but because it is not designed to be read in traditional chronological order sometimes…

Distinguishing Between Holiness and Hollowness

Jesus assured us that He will bring to full completion the work He began. Knowing this, we should acknowledge that personal holiness can only be realized when one incorporates discipline into his or her life for the sole purpose of engaging in the study of becoming more like Jesus. The bible teaches how to be more like Jesus. Leading a spiritually disciplined life leads to a personal holy life. According, to Pastor John Russell, the…

Video: Seeing My Eyes Through His

Seeing my eyes through His? Are your eyes wide shut? To recognize opportunity knocking at your door you have to be paying attention. The most wonderful thing about youthfulness is that it is blind, you rarely see it coming or going. I have no shame in my game, I know things change, which is all the more reason to drink, drink while the water of life is running. Free-flowing water is opportunity knocking at your…

Be Still and Know that I am God

“Be still, and know that I am God!” (Psalm 46:10, NLT).  One of my favorite scriptures in the bible is Psalm 46:10. My late mother often recited this verse when she felt overwhelmed or moved to share her wisdom on the subject of being discontent. Mother would say “sometimes you just need to be still, let go and let God.”  It seems that every time I heard her say this, I was going through something. Clarity was out of…

SEEING WHO GOD SEES IN THE MIRROR

When we look in the mirror it’s rare to see what God sees. That’s because our vision, thoughts, and opinions of ourselves are not his. In other words, “no matter how much we think we got it all right the possibility that it’s mostly wrong is very very real. Why do you think that is? Well, for starters we are not perfect. Yes, even perfect Patty, pretty Paula or smart Susan fall short somewhere. All…

Skeletons in the Closet

“When your skeletons start falling out of the closet, and chasing you all around the room; don’t be afraid, don’t run, just be still. Now put on God’s Shield of Armour and push them back behind the door where they belong”  15 What I say is true, and you should fully accept it: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the worst. 16 But I was given mercy so…
