My one word for 2018

I have to say, this one word sure is a good replacement for a list of resolutions that will never be followed through with. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy!

The Isaiah 53:5 Project

If you’re like most people, each January goes something like this: You choose a problematic behavior that has plagued you for years and vow to reverse it. In fact, you can probably think of two or three undesirable habits—make that four or five.

Thus begins the litany of imperfections to be perfected commonly known as “New Year’s Resolutions.” All of which are typically off your radar by February.

“My One Word” is an experiment designed to move you beyond this cycle. The challenge is simple: lose the long list of changes you want to make this year and instead pick ONE WORD.

For 2018, my one word is OBEDIENCE which is perfect becuse I know I am not always as obedient as I need to be. And, for that one reason alone, I am really missing out.

“Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in obedience to…

Jesus fixes EVERYTHING. Great thoughts on forgiveness here from IB with a link to some more great thoughts from Aldtric Johnson. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy.

See, there's this thing called biology...

insanitybytes22A bit funny, the other day I encountered a couple of articles on forgiveness that just pushed all my buttons, that annoyed me so much I was quite prepared to get up on a bucket and start preaching like the prophets of old. Wrong headed, that’s what they were, devoid of love, all wrong hearted, victim blaming, unkind, legalistic. I wrote a blog post full of words, “thou shall not weaponize forgiveness in such a manner!”

But then……I don’t want to be negative all the time, I don’t want to focus on all the things we in faith can make a real mess of, and how hurtful that can be to other people.

So I trashed the whole post and decided to just let it go. God with His perfect timing, promptly called my attention to this breath of fresh air, just a post that made my heart sing, that…

The greatest of guests

The Lions Den

In and under the most wonderful playgrounds of the world, requires the greatest of guests.  May I introduce you to the king of the oceans, designed for His pleasure, and courtesy of the Creator, and a reminder that some things never change.

(And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. Genesis 1.21)

The great whales were whales then, they are now, and ever shall be whales.  ‘After their kind kinda shuts the mouths of godless evolutionists everywhere.

Oh, then there is this:  For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

But first, this One needed to be born, of a young lowly…

Wisdom Wednesday

My comment: The fact that all have sinned is something too many refuse to get; they continue to think of themselves as “good people.” Good wisdom for us today, thank you.

Blog Host response: So very true..”refuse to get” and then we use as an excuse to not be faithful in our call to witness, leaving the lost even more convinced that they are “good people.” We all need God’s wisdom. Blessings today!

Friends, if that doesn’t convict our hearts about the need to stay faithful in our witnessing, I suspect nothing will. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy.

After 20 Years Moses announces retirement

There is a a saying that a cowboy’s work is never done. It should be said that a Christian’s work is never done. Some biting thoughts here from Tom. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy.

Hard Times Ministries

Following the announcement yesterday by CBS News that Paul the Apostle hung up his bibles, the Middle East heralded Moses, the Father of the Hebrews was withdrawing into retirement.

This is the FIRST whereas all of God’s prophets in the past have never retired, nor was it the expectations of this for the two aforementioned prophets. After all, they were at the peak of their performance and call to duty.

A spokesperson for God could not be located, but 60 minutes pledged a follow up on its tv series.

“I simply had enough.”  Moses exclaimed when asked for reasons.

Paul the Apostle muttered, “Give someone else a chance.”

The brevity of answers baffles the religious communities, but yet we see contemporaries retire commonly with most members of faith.

“No such scripture exists.” Says critics of this retirement.

Thus, a new process has been initiated and installed with perhaps all members…

WHY DOES GOD ‘TEST’ US WHEN HE ALREADY KNOWS (In case you missed it)…

Thanks brother Altdric for writing this powerful post. I pray that a brother or sister will be edified. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

wp-1486245548577.jpg

Why does God test us when He already knows what we will do?

He doesn’t have to ‘find out’ how strong we are…He already knows.

He doesn’t have to see what we will choose…He already knows.

Yes, God tests us so WE can see how strong we are…or aren’t. Just like any other assessment, tests let us know where we stand, and where we need to grow.

Tests allow others to benefit from witnessing our strength, and to learn from our mistakes…

However, there is one more reason God tests us that is so obvious in scripture, but we if we aren’t careful we’ll miss it…


God somtimes wants to prove a point to the enemy.

God knows the outcome beforehand, but the enemy doesn’t.


The enemy thinks he can tempt you to do anything he wants and put God to open shame.

God loves it when we prove the…

My 15 Favorite Christmas Bible Verses and a Christmas Prayer

Merry Christmas to you and yours. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy

Heather C. King - Room to Breathe

Every Christmas Eve, my dad read us the Christmas story, Luke chapters 1 and 2, from the big golden family Bible in the original King James.  I still hear his voice…I still hear the words.

If you’d like to read the full Christmas story, you can find two famous passages in the Gospels:  Luke 1-2  and Matthew 1-2.

Here, though, are 15 of my favorite Christmas Bible verses from the Old and New Testaments, reminding us of the Savior, the season, the gift…

  • Isaiah 7:14 NIV
    Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
  • Isaiah 9:6-7 NIV
    For to us a child is born,
        to us a son is given,
        and the government will be on his shoulders.
    And he will be called
        Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,christmas11
        Everlasting Father, Prince…

HAVE WE MADE OUR QUEENS…KING? #GODLYMARRIAGE

The topic of Biblical submission can be controversial and contentious for sure. Here is a well handled treatment of it here. Well done to brother Altdric. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

wp-1490615338207.jpg

Anyone who reads my writing knows I love to clarify anything that can be misunderstood or twisted. Anyone who has read my writing or watched any of our #SONdayBlessing videos knows I love, cherish, respect and honor my wife. I consider us to be equals in our marriage and I am fully aware of God telling us in 1 Peter that we are to honor our wives, and not doing so can hinder our prayers…

1 Peter 3:7 (NKJV)

Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.

I am fully aware and happily accept the husband’s responsibility to love our wives as Christ loves the church. This is the sacrificial love that’s is defined in Ephesians…

Ephesians 5:25-29 (NKJV)

25 Husbands, love your…

Instant gratification 

I want what I want, and I want it NOW! That’s what most of us seem to think most of the time. God’s schedule is not ours, though. Some good thoughts here from Jesus and Green Tea. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy.

C.C. Brown

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”

‭‭1 John‬ ‭2:15-17‬ ‭KJV‬‬

The problem with the wide range of technology today is that it creates unrealistic expectations.  We are able to talk to a voice automated speaker as if it were our very own personal assistant.  The internet gives us unlimited access to anything that our heart desires with just one click and social media provides temporary gratification beginning “one like” at a time.  Everything moves at warped…
