January 1, 2016

Thought For the Week:

For a follower of Jesus Christ, Faith is not just trying something new for a season, nor is it

We walk by faith and not by sight.

Thought For the Week:

Even while we are in a very dark place,
the gift of joy is ours by receiving it and opening it
through faith in Jesus Christ.
Because of the sinless nature of Jesus, and
His total obedience on the cross, we have everything
that He gave to us through that obedience:
Him giving us all things as a result of the love of
the Father, Who first gave all things
into the hand of Jesus.

Scripture Verse:

These things I have spoken to you,
that My joy may remain in you,
and that your joy may be full.

May 22, 2015

Thought For the Week:

What a blessing that God's Word resonates
so specifically for the survivor of abuse and trauma. 
As survivors, we know what it is to feel like we are losing
our life, as we venture farther and farther into the
bottom of the pit of death that was fashioned for us by
our abusers. To know The Healer, our God, is life itself:
He not only brings us out of the pit, but He heals us
when we cry out to Him. God is always faithful,
no matter what, over and over again...His Word says so!

Scripture Verse:

O, LORD my God, I cried out to You. And You healed me.
O, LORD, You brought me up from the grave;
You have kept me alive that I should not go down to the pit.
Psalm 130: 2-3


May 15, 2015

Thought For the Week:

We learn God's perfect order from Jesus in Scripture:
first the Spirit of God descends; then God's
anointing (blessing, protection and empowerment)
falls by grace; followed by preaching the Good News;
and lastly, healing is brought forth in the physical manifestation of His glory all around.

Scripture Verse:

The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because the LORD
has anointed Me to preach Good Tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted...
Isaiah 61:1

Proverbs 10:31-32


May 1, 2015

Thought For the Week:

With a past history of victimization,
as much as we defend against any leaning toward our own personal sin, it is our own hand that builds
the barrier against ourselves toward a
lethal form of self-victimization.

Scripture Verse:

He who covers his sin will not prosper,
but he who confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.
Proverbs 28:13

wear the character of Jesus.

As the elect of God…put on tender mercies, kindness,
humility, meekness,  longsuffering, bearing with one another.

By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us.

you should go; I will guide you with My eye.
Psalm 32:8


March 16, 2015

Thought For the Week:

No matter how much we plan and do for others,
if the bond of love is not present in our heart,
all of the things we do are in vain (unproductive, hopeless, futile, worthless, proud and self-important).

Scripture Verse:
  
But above all these things (tender mercies, kindness,
humility, meekness, longsuffering) put on love,
which is the bond of perfection.
Colossians 3:14


March 6, 2015

and fulfill all your purpose.

and fulfill all your purpose.

February 13, 2015

Thought For the Week:

What a wonderful way to put one's heart at ease
any time of the day: to acknowledge that God will never lie to us, never embarrass us, never walk away from us, never set out to destroy us. And in the end
He has decreed that we will be conformed into
the image of His Son, Jesus Christ.

God is faithful, by whom you were called into the
fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our LORD.
I Corinthians 1:9

Thought For the Week:

Jesus is the original  proprietor of all of the miracles, blessings, restorations and provisions that He
bestows upon us. And, He is also the final and steadfast resolver of all those matters which prompt us to call upon Him in the first place (or in the last place!);
resulting in the many precious benefits that He holds,
waiting and wanting to give to us.

Scripture Verse:

Trust in the LORD with all of your heart and lean not
on your own understanding; in all your ways
acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.

January 16, 2015

Thought For the Week:

We usually marvel at how God can possibly be
wherever we happen to be, and at the same time,
also be wherever another person happens to be;
the truth is that because He is everywhere all the time,
it is we who are in His presence, rather than Him
being in our presence, no matter where we happen to be.

Scripture Verse:

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life,
nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present
nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other
created thing, shall be able to separate us
from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39

He who has a generous eye will be blessed,
for he gives of his bread to the poor.
Proverbs 22:9


January 2, 2015

Thought For the Week:

By stopping the reel and rush of life, we have the place
and the purpose of hearing God's voice to us
by the mere fact that we are finally and suddenly
still before Him; and then, taking note, we can expect
His promises of sanctuary, protection and
confidence in the contentment of the issues of life.

Scripture Verse:

But whoever listens to Me will dwell safely,
And will be secure, without fear of evil.
Proverbs 1:33

O LORD;
And I will look up.
Psalm 5:3

was spoken by God through the prophet saying,

you and give you peace.
Numbers 6:26


November 28, 2014

Scripture Verse:

He who heeds the word wisely will find good,
and whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he.
Proverbs 16:20


November 21, 2014

Thought For the Week:

Especially in the darkest, most perplexing places of
our lives, our Trust in the LORD God Almighty in the midst of it brings His way and His purpose
right into the center of that darkness; making us bright and light in sharp contrast to, and in spite of,
the shadowy and mysterious gloom
that often times describes our physical circumstance.

For the Lord God is a sun and a shield;
The Lord will give grace and glory;
No good thing will He withhold
From those who walk uprightly.

Philippians 4:13


October 24, 2014

and confidently, without worry.

Let me never be put to shame.

repair, rebuild, make well and to bring back.

And heal you of your wounds,' says the LORD.

Thought For the Week:

strong in our own strength, we are actually in the
deepest place of our own weakest condition.

fruitful, useful and valuable when it is God's strength 
moving through us; and thereby, we are being lifted
into the heavenlies and sustained by His grace.

Scripture Verse:

Beat your plowshares into swords,
and your pruning hooks into spears;
Let the weak say, "I am strong."

The LORD's unwavering faithfulness is designed
for this assuredness: no matter how high the wave of the enemy is against us ~ coming slowly at us from afar
or descending down upon us with great strength and terror ~ the wave of the LORD for our safety
and rescue is always, always higher, wider and deeper.

So they shall fear the name of the LORD from the west,
and His glory from the rising of the sun.

conquered by the blood of Jesus Christ.

Whom shall I fear?

August 29, 2014

Thought For the Week:

God is my chosen best friend, the one I run to for
cover; the one I run to when I seek the protection of a buffer against all that assails me, because I trust
Him never to fail in His own word to me.

Scripture Verse:
      
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

my refuge and my fortress;

August 15, 2014

God's abundant riches into our lives,

for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.

being led away with the error of the wicked...

Thought For the Week:
 
Dwelling on the words, the promises, the principles

For to be carnally minded is death; . . .
Romans 8:6a
 
 
June 13, 2014

(steadiness, regularity and coherence)
by which we commun with God
reveals the outward reliability, dependability

interact with others in our daily life.

and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice.
Psalm 55:17
 
 
June 6, 2014
 
Thought For the Week:
 
When we are consumed with the heaviness of a
sorrowing of heart or the pain of a deep physical distress, we usually think to cry out to God in desperation:
"O, God! Help me!" But, how good
it would be to cry out to God on a more regular basis,
so that when the heavy times come, our crying
out is so much more of a natural course
that we are able to arise much sooner.
 
Scripture Verse:
Is anyone sick among you? Let him call for the elders
of the church, and let them pray over him,

May 9, 2014
 
Thought For the Week:
 
It is impossible to compare the cost of a life of
passing pleasures and crumbling treasures against a
Godly life lived in the manner of Jesus Christ.
The cost of the former outweighs any possible worth,
and the latter costs nothing,

Scripture Verse:
 
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which
Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled
again with a yoke of bondage.

in the land which you go to possess.

Thought For the Week:
 
Alongside those times when we are scorned,
because of our alliance with Jesus Christ,
are all the other times when the control of our tongue
will prevent undue criticism from others toward us.

If you let Christ be Lord in these affairs,

Thought For the Week:
 
Investing daily in the Word of the Lord requires
our time, effort and resource;
but it will gift us with a return of
Holy Spirit endowed empowerment and authority.
 
Scripture Verse:
 
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a
mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed
into the same image from glory to glory,

Thought For the Week:
 
When we yield - Surrender - ourselves to the Lord
in all of His ways, we automatically enjoy
His yield - Harvest - in our lives.

Thought For the Week:
 
Does God feel too far away from you?
Does He seem to feel the farthest away right in
the middle of your darkest hour? 
Although feelings are neither good or bad,
they cannot always be counted on to be trustworthy.
These are always the times to trust God's
solid promise to you that He will not ever leave you.
     
Scripture Verse:
       
The Lord will not abandon His people.
I Samuel 12:22 NLT

Thought For the Week:
 
Even when the best part of us might have a feeble
thought of revenge because of wrongful acts or
words against us, the better road to follow is always
God's perfect design. After all, it is a road that is
heavenly enhanced and far superior to anything we
could construct. It will outdo, outshine and go beyond every single human endeavor.
 
Scripture Verse:
 
Doing wrong leads to disgrace,
and scandalous behavior brings contempt.
Proverbs 18:3 NLT

Thought For the Week:
 
While we may change from season to season,
and sometimes even minute to minute,
God never changes; not even the slightest shifting.
 
Scripture Verse:
 
But He is unique, and who can make Him change?
And whatever His soul desires, that He does.
Job 23:13

Thought For the Week:
 
Fear is an inveitable entity within the human heart
from time to time. Rather than giving it full throttle,
give it entirely to God, and receive His
complete shelter and security.
 
Scripture Verse:
 
Now the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision,
"Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent; ..."
Acts 18:9

Thought For the Week:
 
Not only does God's sovereignty include
the whole of everything, His rule and power
also embrace and contain how it is all accomplished . . .
how it is all put together.
 
Scripture Verse:
 
Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous!
For praise from the upright is beautiful!
Psalm 33:1
