Jesus loves you right now!

Don’t beat yourself up IF YOU SIN OR MAKE A MISTAKE, or are not with the Lord right now. Jesus has already beaten death for “YOU!” Don’t ever think Jesus loves everyone else and went to the cross for everyone else but you. If you have a conscience that you have done wrong or feel that you are not right …

God created ‘free will’

God is beyond smart. God is Holy. God knew that in a world of free will that there would be evil, but also a capacity for real love, selfless love. Human beings are wicked by nature. Just like a chef who is in the middle of adding ingredients in a recipe, God is in the midst of filling us with …

ISAIAH 55:10-12

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: It shall not return unto me void, but it …

Look to Jesus

Life can be a real battle at times, especially when we are overwhelmed with worldly troubles. But, our issues and problems in life are not going to give us peace with our issues and problems. We can pray for specific help for our problems. But, we probably won’t run out of problems in life. Keeping our overall primary focus and …

Victory!

In any short or long-term plan that God has for us…We can never have victory unless we complete the process of GOD’S plan for us. We will always have victory, when we complete the process of GOD’S plan for us.

Much can go wrong in life, PRAISE BE TO GOD!

Much can go wrong in life. However, many more things can go wrong in life if our SOUL’S and SPIRIT’S are on a joint venture to destroy ourselves. Numerous actions, thoughts, and words can put us in the grasp of Satan. Some of these things are a flat-out rejection of Jesus, claiming to be a Christian but leading a dual …

Looking at Jesus face to face

One day we will all look at Jesus face to face. I never took much time to actually consider how that would be. Imagine being thoroughly ashamed that we lived our lives for our own selfish happiness and pleasures as a priority, while we know that Jesus lived and died for us. Jesus sacrificed His entire life even unto a …

Jesus and people happy

It’s okay to be happy!

Life is hard enough without causing ourselves problems. One day, a person can suddenly ‘WAKE UP’ to the realization that all along they’ve been an assistant to Satan to destroy themselves. In this case, I’m not certain which is the worst feeling; the destruction that a person has caused themselves over the years, the years they were held in bondage, …

Gratitude To God For The Storms

There’s no one that hasn’t experienced some sort of tribulation, strife, or storm in their lives. It’s how we handle each and every storm that matters. It’s times like these that remind us that we aren’t in control and we don’t have all the answers, but God does. We may feel lacking in competency and wonder how things will work …

God is love

God is love. How, then, are things not always wonderful and perfect? In the grand scheme of “everlasting,” at this point, we are just mere babies growing. If you were God and you had a home, who would you want living with you? Would you want friends who were grateful for your love and blessings, and who loved you in …

Fear Not! Have faith!

Have you ever felt that all of your hope was lost? Were you ever in a situation where you feared that a good outcome seemed impossible? Join the crowd. It must have been hard enough for Noah to build an ark for God let alone be ridiculed for his faith during the process. Moses, Paul, and Peter, among other children …

Feeling discouraged?

There are many reasons that we can become discouraged in life, including when things that we thought would work out in a certain way worked out differently. If we stay steadfast on the path God has laid out for us, it is a guarantee that things will not only work out well, but they will work out better than expected. …

Living a God Centered Life Written by Lisa Connor

What is a God Centered Life? For Christians, it means that God is at the center of their life. God is first and foremost. God comes before their children, their spouse, their friends and family members. Putting God as the center of daily life builds a strong spiritual foundation that can weather any of life’s storms. Jesus said in Matthew …

I felt too tired to go to church today By Rhonda Childs

This morning, my arms felt tired, my hips, shoulders and back hurt from Fibromyalgia, and my left foot hurt from an accident in 2010 where it was broken in seven places. Overall, I just felt tired, and almost cancelled. I pushed through, and at church we all sang hymns of praise, worship, and love to the Lord, and I was …

The Stranglers and the Wranglers

Many years ago and unknowingly at the time to the University of Wisconsin, they were conducting a social study that would yield much insight to the advantages of encouragement. There was a male undergraduate literary club that demonstrated great talent in writing. However, the club members critiqued each other’s material to such a degree of brutality it was to the …

Parable of the Lost Sheep

Written by Rhonda Childs The following Luke verses were an inspiration behind the name of my ministry, as I was once a lost sheep myself. In November of 2010, I surrendered completely to Jesus. I can attest that thereafter, although there can always be problems and troubling times in life, I have also received an immensity of Holy blessings beyond my wildest …

Looking to the future

Written by James Rathman Although we want to have a conscience, we never want to be unforgiving to ourselves for our past actions. Jesus forgives us for our sins when we repent and ask Him to forgive us…so we can forgive ourselves also. But, by reflecting to our own personal history for productive reasons, we can use the truth of …

Psalm 23

King David was once a shepherd who had humbly and wisely recognized that he was also a sheep, in regards to being completely dependent on God. He knew that without God, he was helpless, as all of us are. God is not just our great creator, God is also our perpetual sustainer. A shepherd knows all of his sheep . …
