Presentufaultless recently marked nine years! Thanks to all who keep reading here! I wonder what amazing situations God has in store for us!
I just wanted to put it in print: Who has the final say…. JEHOVAH has the final say! No matter what the doctor, the lawyer, the judge, your illness, your income, or the situation says. JEHOVAH has the final say! AMEN!
Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose on the third day. He died, in fact, for all humanity: past, present, and future. Jesus said He would and did send us a Comforter (The Holy Spirit). Today, Resurrection Day, is our assurance that as He rose we too, who confess … Continue Reading Happy Resurrection Sunday 2018!
January draws to close. Yes , The Good Life is the title of my latest book, but it has also been true for me during the month of January. I skipped past death (had a very close shave with a car) mended an important relationship, the new book was released, … Continue Reading “What a Good Life” Continued!
May you have discipline, faith, and boldness to believe and live God’s Word for 2018! I know we must live only one day at a time. So let us commit to being the the most honorable, upright, and loving servant that will bring honor to the Master. We can trust … Continue Reading Happy 2018!
I’ve been studying spiritual warfare on and off for the last few months. So much to learn, to digest! I am absorbing bits of the Spiritual Warfare Handbook by Dr. Ed Murphy. What do you know about spiritual warfare? Do share!
The silent tongue seems the most damaging to me. I have no statistics to prove it, but somehow this one seems to be so far-reaching. People don’t address wrong-doing (basically sin) in the home, at school, or at church. Our ignoring the wrongdoing does not make it disappear. It just … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! — Day 30
This is the day that discouragement gets addressed. Pegues comments that discouraging someone else is the evidence that you lack faith in God’s ability. I am guilty! I have learned though the more you rehearse God’s Word, your faith increases and you look less at the circumstance and more … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! — Day 26
Prior to accusing someone, Pegues encourages that you ask a clarifying question and listen to the person’s response before you make a statement! Wow! (Wish I had been practicing this. Most likely would have saved myself several embarrassing, “I’m sorry” moments!)
The self-absorbed tongue can be a trap for me, if I am not careful! I have much to say… and well if no one else wants to talk… here’s what I think. 🙂 One does tire of the person who has nothing else to talk about but him or herself. … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! — Day 21
One not need to intimidate others. God controls everything, we do not. The sooner we make peace with this fact, the easier life becomes. Pegues write in the Affirmation Box on page 79, “Because God is in control of every aspect of my life and has set my destiny, I … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! — Day 18
The “belittling tongue” hit home the hardest! Belittling is defined as saying or thinking that someone or something is unimportant or not very good. 1 I would not eagerly admit to belittling people. But, by the time the author finished with her explanations and examples, I felt “guilty” had been … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! — Day 13
Today has been some day and it’s not even close to being done! I have had heard one bad tiding or encountered one difficult circumstance after another — from being challenged at work about my decision-making, to learning that a family member could be facing long-term financial challenges, to an acquaintance’s husband having … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! — TESTED!
Well, the eighth day’s entry was definitely a challenge for me – Day 10: the gossiping tongue- is not. I do my best not to gossip because in church circles I have seen the emotional fallout from those at the receiving end. Females usually burst into tears and males stand … Continue Reading Taming My Tongue! –Day 10
