Encouraging Thoughts

  1. plastic jesus

    I don't care if it rains or freezes 'Long as I got my Plastic Jesus Sittin' on the dashboard of my car. Comes in colors, pink and pleasant Glows in the dark 'cause it's iridescent Take it with you when you travel far. Get yourself a sweet Madonna Dressed in rhinestones sittin' on a Pedestal of abalone shell. Goin' 90, I ain't scar-ied 'Cause I got the Virgin Mary Assurin' me that I won't go to Hell.

  2. “For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son...”

    The fear in not acknowledging we all were once vessels fitted of the world for destruction until the Revelation of Jesus Christ...is in disregarding that which was first was natural. In not acknowledging we were to be “wasted” and built of destruction for sin and death and iniquity, spreads there is something to be high minded over and also that God is not equal. It was(is)our nature in the sin of the natural man(crucified with Christ))who bears the image of the earthly of to destroy and...
  3. Agreement

    Mark 14:55-64 And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none. ...For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together. (Would bold if I knew how in blogs) For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together. And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying, We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will...
  4. Fasting - is it really necessary?

    MEDITATION ON FASTING One morning I read of the time Jesus spent in the desert after his baptism. The bible tells us that when he came out of the water he was filled with the Holy Spirit, So after he had been filled with the Holy Spirit he was led by the Holy Spirit into the desert where he was tempted by Satan but resisted. Then we are told that he returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit which gave him his authority Matthew 3:16 “ As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of...
  5. Tree yielding fruit after his kind

    1 John 3:9-10 “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. [10] In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.” “...for his seed remaineth in him.” consider that seed which is the seed of God in relation to Genesis 1:11-12 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and...
  6. Multiplying Words without knowledge...

    A few passages to consider in Job. Job 34:35-37 Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom. [36] My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end because of his answers for wicked men. [37] For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God. “Job has spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom.” ... “...he multiples his words against God.” Job 35:16 [16] Therefore doth Job open his mouth in...
  7. “This is the Work of God...”

    John 6:29 [29] Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. “This is the work of God, that you believe on him whom he has sent.” A lot of discussion on “work” never coming to any agreement. All I can share is my own experience and it is this ...the work of God that you believe is ongoing and goes deep is anchored. It doesn’t appear to be an instant “believe” but a full work to completion of “...that you believe on him whom he has...
  8. Hope Lives!

    According to your work...we read what He says pertaining to the outward man which perishes, this world which perishes and passes away, the old crucified ...all things created and made new in Christ. The command is to walk in the Spirit and not the flesh. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. [15] Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their...
  9. Reprove

    John 8:41,51 [41] Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. [51] Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. What are His sayings? Colossians 3:8-9 [8] But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. [9] Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; “...filthy communication out of...
  10. Equity

    Equality and Equity. Two words. It wasn’t until the other day that I learned the two are not the same. The focus of this post is the one I didn’t understand...Equity. Equity is giving everyone what they need to be successful. Of course that is googles definition but it helps give perspective to why “equity” is mentioned as pertaining to God. But then one must also define what success means to them. 1 John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that...
  11. Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven (Part two)

    Luke 11:52 [52] Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. "For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings." (Hosea 6:6). Jo b says, "Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways." (Job 21:14) Matthew 23:13 [13] But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven...
  12. The Key of David (Part One)

    Recently someone asked about the key of David which brought back memories of how God first intervened in my life. I'm hopeful we all have had personal moments where odd things, unexplainable moments take place. Maybe we hesitate in calling it a conversation with God where He answers...this was one of those. My memory was shot. Because of an illness I had forgotten how to drive across town to my mother-in-laws home where I had been countless times. In fact at one point we had lived in the old...
  13. Here I Am - Use Me

    For Your life to be seen through me, I’m desperate to know more of You. As I continue to surrender; Do what You desire to do. Let the fragrance that comes from my life, Flow from what You’re doing this day. As I continue to discover the truth - And I learn to walk more in Your way. Identifying those things of my will - And allowing Your work to be done. So that as I live out this life - Your will and my will - become one. And then I’ll walk in the fruit that does last - Reflecting You -...
  14. His Promise - True

    Acknowledging pain in this Mother’s heart While questions rise in my mind. At what crossroads, did they really depart? Truthful answers will I ever find? Oh, Lord what do You say to do while we heal? “Remember I’m redeemer and high tower Remember I lived and died, it was real Was all to include in this hour. Do you think there is one thing that I do not see? The terror, the doubt, and the tears? Finally, when you yield on bended knee It is then, I’ll redeem all the years. I’ll bring you...
