  • Do I truly Believe?

    Do I truly Believe?

    What am I here for?  What am I wanting to get out of this?  What am I willing to put into it, to get what I want?  Have you ever asked yourself these questions or asked at least one of them to yourself?  If so, are your motives in the right place or are you…

  • God’s Holy Fire “How Foolish Can You Be?”

    “How Foolish Can You Be?” — God’s Holy Fire for 06/24/2017 How foolish can you be? After starting your Christian lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort? — Galatians 3:3 NLT Key Thought Try harder! Be better! Achieve more!

  • What is your Greatest Treasure?

    What is your Greatest Treasure?

    I have to say that this spoke to me today. It makes me think of where should my treasure be. This devotion by Phil Ware says it best! “The Greatest Treasure,” and brings at least to me a question: Who is my Greatest Treasure? As Christ followers He should be our greatest treasure, but are…

  • Are you putting the Full Armor of God on?

    Are you putting the Full Armor of God on?

    In this mornings devotion reading, I find myself thinking and wondering if I and other Christian’s are putting on the full Armor of God on a daily basis as the Word says for us to be doing.  I know that it has convicted me of this as I know because of the busyness of the…

  • Are we trying to buy the Spirit of God?

    Are we trying to buy the Spirit of God?

    It’s a good question, when you stop to think about ones actions and deeds.  are we looking to please man or God?  Do we want to secure ourselves a place in heaven or we just going a long with everyone else?  It’s something to think about and ponder.  We need to trust in God, that…

  • Who Controls Us?

    Who Controls Us?

    It’s a good question.  Who are we controlled by?  We hate it when others try to control our lives and we get defensive when they do control or try to control our lives and thoughts.  So the real question should be ‘who do we want to be controlled by,’ Satan or the Holy Spirit?  That…

  • What Idol’s are you harboring?

    What Idol’s are you harboring?

    In today’s devotional I am reminded about what we must give up to enter the kingdom of God.  This can be and is a tough subject for a lot of people.  I know that at times it is for me.  We cannot enter the kingdom on our own accord, but we have to have the…

  • Are you harboring any unforgiveness toward anyone?

    Are you harboring any unforgiveness toward anyone?

    Are you harboring any un-forgiveness?  I know that I do and have; today’s devotion talks about having un-forgiveness and how we hold onto that un-forgiveness and how we can have faith as small as a mustard seed to deal with that un-forgiveness.  The hardest thing that we can do to ourselves and others is to…

  • Are you straddling the fence?

    Are you straddling the fence?

    The reason that I ask this question is because I was once doing that same thing.  Wanting to have it both ways and still claimed myself to be a Christian.  Well it does not work that way and it is a trap from Satan to try and entice us into doing things that are evil.…

  • Love one another

    Love one another

    Do we truly love our fellow man or are just walking through the motions? It’s a question that I ask of myself and you. One that if we are truly followers of Christ, that we should be doing on a daily, moment by moment basis. I read in my devotional from Phil Ware this morning…

  • Be Holy!

    Be Holy!

    In a world where being holy is not acceptable, because we are to act perfectly, I find that in my devotional reading this morning that, that is what Christ is wanting us to be.  More holy in Him.  Now I find myself wondering how that would be perceived in this world, but as the devotion…

  • Walking in Peace

    Walking in Peace

    You may or may not know that I have been working on getting closer to God and becoming free from my past hurts, habits, and hang-ups.  It is a calming, freer feeling as I walk in the Holy Spirit in my corner and within me.  Guiding  and leading me every step of the way.  However…

  • Digging Deeper

    Digging Deeper

    Have you ever dug deeper within yourself? I have been on a Spiritual journey lately where I have been digging deeper, getting rid of the things that have caused me pain over the years. It is not an easy process to go through, but one I felt was necessary to do, because there were some…

  • Rediscovery and healing

    Rediscovery and healing

    Since June 13, 2015; I have been on a spiritual healing journey.  Renewing my mind and digging deep into my spirit listening to CD’s and reading material having to do with my past hurts, hang-ups and habits.  Digging deep into my soul, spirit, and dealing with my past hurts from people who have used, hurt,…

  • Are you ready for Christ’s return?

    Are you ready for Christ’s return?

    Are you ready for Christ to return and take you home?  A good and powerful question.  As I was reading in my daily devotions this morning.  This question is something to ponder and to ponder very seriously.  This is not to be taken lightly at all, because when Christ does return it’s going to be…

  • A tale of Two Powers

    A tale of Two Powers

    Do you know that you have two powers that want your attention?  One is good that wants you to follow Jesus and the other is Satan trying to destroy you no matter what you do.  Satan is always lurking around looking for ways to get into our lives.  Wanting to turn us away from God…

  • What is in your boat?

    What is in your boat?

    What is in your boat?  No, I’m not talking about a physical boat.  I’m talking about the boat of your life.  The one that you use for security, safety and comfort.  What are you clinging to?  I read in my devotions today about how we can make things our boat instead of making Christ our…

  • Do you have doubts?

    Do you have doubts?

    Do you have doubts?  I know that I have and I have sometimes allowed them to go to far. Well in my devotion this morning Jesus was talking about doubting. That we all will doubt, but by trusting and having faith in Jesus that He will get through it and will get closer to Him.…

  • Have we really answered the door for Jesus?

    Have we really answered the door for Jesus?

    I was reading my devotions this morning and this struck me pretty hard.  The devotion is written by Phil Ware and it’s “A Year With Jesus” devotion for today. “No Room!” — A Year with Jesus for 12/23/2014 Note from Jesus Dear Disciple, Have you really made room in your heart for Me? I’m not…

  • Do we really know the truth about sin?

    Do we really know the truth about sin?

    It is an interesting question.  As Christians we need to know the truth about sin and where it actually comes from and from whom.  If we continue to live a life of sin then how can we be a child of God?  It does not make any sense nor does it make it right.  God…
