Valuable

1 Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” “Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to […]

Bring a Bucket!

Psalm 81:10 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.” Man, I love this verse! Here is what it speaks to me:First, God starts off by saying what He has already done. I think that’s a great practice; say what God did […]

The Dread of Reputation

Psalm 62:7 “My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.” I really like the first part of this verse. I feel like it takes the pressure off. Like saying, ”All I am, it all depends on you, God.” The word honor means, “high respect.” It is good to […]

We Get to Inherit This

Psalm 62:1“Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him.” When I hear the words, “the rest of God” or “entering into the rest of God”, I get a sense of curious peace. I would love to find out what this rest in Him means, and I also get a sense of […]

He Is Not Silent

Psalm 50:3 NIV“Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him, and around him a tempest rages.” Lately, I have been noticing Bible verses that talk about God speaking. It makes me wonder; what does He speak over our lives? What is the Holy Spirit saying as He intercedes for us? […]

Under His Wings

Psalm 91:4 “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings, you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.” In this scripture, I like how God shows how protective He is. I wonder what it would look like in your life if God covered you the way this verse […]

At Home, In My Love

John 15: 9-10 (MSG)“I’ve loved you the way my Father has loved me. Make yourselves at home in my love. If you keep my commands, you’ll remain intimately at home in my love. That’s what I’ve done — kept my Father’s commands and made myself at home in his love.” I find the Message translation […]

In This Moment

Hebrews 2:11 “Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters.” If this verse seems a little confusing, I can clarify. The One who makes people holy is God, and those who are made holy […]

With My Name

Psalm 89:21-22“My hand will sustain him; surely my arm will strengthen him. The enemy will not get the better of him; the wicked will not oppress him.” A trick one of my brothers taught me was to replace the word him, with my name. So, whatever your name is, put that name in the place […]

Joy Will Overtake

Isaiah 35:10“and those the LORD has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”’ I think the greatest feeling ever is when you are just so in love with God that He is what you […]

Jesus Is Ready

Lamentations 3:25 “The Lord is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him.” I like how after the comma, it says search. It is like those who search for Him, are gonna find him (Look at Jeremiah 29:13). Like one day, you are going to get to the spot where […]

In the Well

Isaiah 12:3-4 “With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. 4 In that day you will say: “Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.” I absolutely love this! Especially verse three. I feel like these […]

Even Still

Psalms 22:2-3 “2 My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, but I find no rest b. 3 Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the one Israel praises.” Do you notice the italicized b after the word rest? At the bottom page of my Bible, the b […]

I am thankful I get to be that person for this semester! 1 Chronicles 16:15-16 NIV 15 “He remembers his covenant forever, the […]

So That All Will Be Saved: December 10, 2018

“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:17 God did not send his son to earth to condemn us. He did it so we could all be saved. Through Jesus, we are saved just as God planned.

Integrity > Wealth: December 3, 2018

Proverbs 19: “Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity, than he who is perverse in speech and is a fool.” Our possessions often cloud our judgement. Or maybe it’s the possessions that we don’t possess. There’s nothing wrong with wanting something, it is when we become jealous and obsessed that those objects […]

No Worries: November 12, 2018

Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up. Proverbs 12:25 As human beings, we worry a lot more than we should, which usually causes other people to worry as well. Why Worry: We all know that worrying doesn’t do us any good, but we do it anyway. (I should know!) But […]
