New Culture

Ephesians 4:1-3 (NKJV) I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.  I am currently reading a devotion by the authors…

Simple Trust

John 3:16 (AMP) “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life.  John 3:16 is probably the most well-known and highly exploited Bible verse of all time. Rightly so – it is the basis of the new…

Teach Me

Psalm 143:10 (AMP) Teach me to do Your Will (so that I may please you), For You are my God; let Your Good Spirit lead me on level ground. Oh, this little nugget of a verse for today can speak volumes to the overwrought mind and overwhelmed heart. In fact, David wrote in the very…

That New Thing

Isaiah 43:19 (AMP) “Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.” Has a scripture ever jumped off the page at you before or in this case the glowing…

Feeling Alone

Psalm 91:1-2 (NLT) Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. What is the first thing you do when you walk in…

Waiting on the Whisper

I King 19:11-13 (NLT) “Go out and stand before me on the mountain,” the Lord told him. And as Elijah stood there, the Lord passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was…

Life is Good

I Thessalonians 5:16-19 (NIV) Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit. “Life is good.” The first words scribbled in my journal this cold January morning. Who am I telling? Me, I guess. Sometimes in the chaos and craziness of life…

Christ My Husband

Ephesians 5:25-27 (NKJV) Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy…

Invited Guest

John 14:26-27 (NKJV)  But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your…

Going Someplace

Psalm 1:1-3 (NKJV) Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that…
