Proverbs 14:1,2,3 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.  He that walketh in uprightness feareth the Lord: but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him. In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them. Without thinking things through to the end, sometimes I begin the process of tearing down..... every cutting word every negative attitude every thought of superiority every lazy motive every time I am discontent with the life God has created for me and my family every time I am positive I can do better than my husband.... Without thinking things through to the end, I tear down the very ones I love the most!   It is so important to keep my thoughts under control, which is hard to do in this emotional female body! It takes great determination to keep my mind on  Christ and His kingdom, and His Word, and remembering the rewards that come from building my family up. The things th

first commandment

My husband is so good about following directions!  He doesn't seem to struggle with "doing things by the book". I however, struggle with following directions or rules even after I have read them.... It just goes against my nature to be "law" abiding :-o So how in the world can a person like me ever please God, when the Word of God clearly says in John 15:10  "If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love, even as I have kept my Fathers commandments, and abide in his love." Well, the answer is found in John 3:16 and Mark 12:28-30 "For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." "And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well asked him, which is the first commandment of all? Jesus answered him, the first of all the commandments is.....The Lord our God is one Lord:


The Gospels are filled with stories of how Jesus interacted with people who didn't really fit in.  Not just regular stories, amazing stories of how HE treated them in such a way that was empowering and  sometimes culturally offensive to everyone of that time period.   Jesus interacted with people that were of a different race, different genders, had known sin, or disease, and of every occupation (as well as religious leaders). Surely Jesus desired that all of these people would embrace the truth. So WHAT DID JESUS DO? *He healed the sick *He fed the hungry *He delivered the oppressed *He told people to tell others what God had done for them *He praised people for their great faith *He Humbly obeyed God What didn't He do? * hold to prejudicial norms *condemn *argue theology *act superior It maybe that you are the one who feels like you don't fit in.....remember this,  Jesus wants to be your Savior.  You need only call upon His name to be saved, and you w

New year Resolute

Things you would like to see come to pass this year? Spiritual growth plan? Seek God’s will above all, don’t presume you know it! James 4:15 If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that……. Believe that His will is perfect and good… Jeremiah 29:11 I know the plans I have for you….. Philippians 4:13 tells us, “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” John 15:5 declares, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” If God is the center of your New Year, it has chance for success, depending on your commitment to it. If it is God’s will for something to be fulfilled, He will enable you to fulfill it. If a resolution is not God honoring and/or is not in agreement in God’s Word, we will not receive God’s help in fulfilling the resolution!  If it goes directly against His Word, it is NOT HIS WILL. So, what sort of New Year’s resolution should a Christian make? Here are
