Love Your Children As God Loves You

“All your children shall be taught by the Lord and great shall be peace of your children.” Isaiah 54:13

Our children need our love. To nurture and love them is such a privilege God has given us.

Last night, my nephew and his wife had a baby girl. My sister sent me a picture of my newest grand-niece.
She makes my sixth grand-niece. I also have six grand nephews.

She was only a few minutes old. When I saw her picture, I thought how wonderful babies are. Only God could give such a beautiful gift of pure love. 

How could you not love a baby? I thought back to my own mother and family when I was little, and how much love they gave me. Growing up in a house where you are loved and feel loved is one of the greatest blessings you can have. And if you are fortunate enough that they teach you about God and His love then you are double blessed.

Our job is to raise them to love, to know right from wrong, be respectful, and then the solid base of them knowing our Lord and Savior gives them everything they need in life to move forward in growing so they will be a blessing to others and have the life they were created for.

Darkness and Light!


"Therefore do not be partners with them. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord." Ephesians 5:7-10

Tim Kight, said, "The contrast in this passage is between light and darkness. Light in scripture refers to truth and righteousness. Darkness refers to falsehood and evil. To live as children of light means to be directed by what is good and right and true."

It seems today, people are telling us "Things we know to be bad are good, and things we know to be good are bad."

Maybe before we believe what we are being told, we would be smart to read God's word and confirm what He says is good and what He says is bad before we go off following those who may not be following Christ. 

This reminds me of the serpent in the Garden of Eden, telling Adam and Eve what was bad was good and what was good was bad.

We can not allow others to put us down into their rabbit holes.

"Lord, give us discernment in what we hear from others; courage to stand with you, and protection from being led astray."Susan Reichert

Like A Lion Is The Word


"For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." Hebrews 4:12

God's word is alive and it is active. To know His will, know His words in scripture. And then pray those words. What ever is going on in your life, find the scripture that relates to that and speak God's word to the situation.

One Power Needed

"So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Isaiah 55:11

Power! People all over the world may want power. But there is only one power that can help us in our daily journey. Everything we experience on our journey can be exciting or devasting. There is only one person who is always with us and never leaves our side and that is our Lord, Jesus Christ. And He sees us through.

We walk in His power and in His words that are hidden in our hearts. No power on earth is greater than His.

That is why He tells us to not fear. He is with us.

Who Do You Walk With?


Psalms 1:1-3

"Blessed is the one
    who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers."

Having read this many times, I often wonder why it is so hard to walk with the Lord in our daily lives. These words in Psalm are so plain. Wouldn't we want to walk with the Lord daily and be blessed by Him?

The contrast of the two ways to walk is so dramatic. I pray the Lord will help me walk with Him daily on the path that He chooses for me.

What Path Are you On?

"And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it," when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left."" Isaiah 30:21

The Lord says He will speak to us and tell us the way to go. He says it many times in scripture. 

"In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:6

I think the question becomes, "Will we listen"? Not if He will help us and show us the path. He has already said He would.

But God is not a genie. You don't rub His belly and expect the poof!

Read His word, see what He says to you about the path you should walk. He is full of mercy and grace and He has a path for us to walk. It is a good path.

His Lettersr To You


"Great blessings belong to the person who reads the words of this message from God and to those who hear this message and do what is written in it. There is not much time left." Revelation 1:3

This was the final mention in the Bible concerning reading the Bible.

Many times I have heard people say, "Well, it is so hard to read." Others say, "I don't understand it." Or "It takes too long."

Let me ask you a question. If your dad wrote you a letter, would you read it?

This is considered God's letters to us, showing us how much He loves us. Giving us important information on how to live our lives and receive His blessings. That alone, is worth reading, don't you think?

You see God blesses those who read His word, listen to His word and obey His word.

I personally want God's blessing in and on my life. There is so much going on in the world today and so many things that can be confusing, that I need to know how to operate in this world.

I need to know that He loves me and is eager to help me on this journey. Knowing He has a plan for my life gives me assurance of who I am and that I am important to Him.

Reading the Bible consistenly has benefits for each one of us. We get to see God's character.and how He is holy, faithful, full of mercy and how much He loves each of us. By reading the Bible you come to know Him as your Father in heaven.

Blessings to you!

A New Year! Who Will Direct Your Path


"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.The old has passed away; behold
the new as come." 2 Corinthians 5:17

Restoration! Created new. 

Today, begins a New Year. A new month and a new day. A clean slate. What will we choose to begin? What will we choose to become? 

Those are important questions for us. Many will be making "new" lists for the New Year. Some will even try to follow those lists, for a while. But life gets busy, and many will put the list aside or forget it until the next new year.

For those who belong to Christ, He has made us a new creation. Our old ways He has replaced with new ones. We won't be making a list; we will come to Him requesting He lead and guide us each day so we will be pleasing unto Him. He knows the way on the path He has for us, and if we follow Him we will complete our journey.

May God's Blessings flow over your life this year. Surrender your ways to Him and He will direct your path.

Blessings in 2024
