13When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their OWN evil desire and enticed. 15 Then, after desire had conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it […]
A psalm of David. 1 LORD, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief. 2 Do not bring your servant into judgment, for no one living is righteous before you. 3 The enemy pursues me, he crushes me to the ground; he makes me dwell […]
Proverbs 3:5-6 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. This verse can be so hard for me at times. I want to trust Him with evrything I have, but when I am presented […]
Coffee brewing. Kids screaming. Dog barking. Dishes piled up. Laundry overflowing. I feel unappreciated, exhausted, constantly needed, and COMPLETELY overwhelmed. So basically, I am exactly where the enemy wants me to be. Tired, feeling defeated, and ready to explode. However, could I just say, that as a devoted follower of Jesus Christ, I am called […]
As I sit to type, I am grateful for this outlet. Whether others read this from start to finish, or it passes them by, it is still a gift…a gift to me. See I have this calling, gift, maybe a curse; I don’t know what you would call it, but I feel people’s pain. Sometimes […]
Dear Heavenly Father, My heart weighs heavy today as so many lives continuously are claimed by the darkness of this world. So much pain circles around us. The inner struggle remains real and continuous for all of us. For some, the pain is too great. The war within is far too much to bare and […]
Abba Father! Thank you for choosing us and allowing us to have the privilege of being re-birthed into Your kingdom. Made new as we have been provided with the grace needed to clean our lives up. To allow sanctification as we choose to be set a part for Your purposes. Praise YOU, Lord, for the […]
Blessed are the ones who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Matt 5:4
When we hate our sins, and in turn, desire to carry our God’s commandments more then our fleshly tendencies, then does God’s grace empower us to overcome it. They (our individual sins) do not simply ‘disappear’. No, it is a war and you much choose to crucify them every time they rear their ugly head. Satan tempts, but we CHOOSE to bite.
A man is tempted by their own fleshly desire, which, when gives birth to sin, causes death. James 1:14-15
Therefore, let us consider it pure joy when we face trials of many kinds, as it produces endurance and maturity. James 1:2-3
God’s correction is a gift. Cleanse yourself. Set yourselves a part. Say no through tye power of grace. You matter! We are the salt and the light, but we must become transparent in order for our light to shine through. I love you!
Psalm 119:113-144 Samekh 113 I hate the double-minded, but I love your law. 114 You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word. 115 Depart from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commandments of my God. 116 Uphold me according to your promise, that I may live, and let me not be put […]
Dear Heavenly Father, Forgive us, Lord, for allowing our own selfish desires to give birth to death. By seeking self first, rather then Your kingdom, O Lord, all things have not been added, but yet subtracted from us. We humbling come before You, on our knees and with hearts fully exposed, pleading for a change […]
