Be You!

Luke 12:2 “You can’t keep your true self hidden forever; before long you’ll be exposed. You can’t hide behind a religious mask forever; sooner or later the mask will slip and your true face will be known.” (MSG)

Wearing a mask can be draining and discouraging. Even the nose mask that we had to wear for protection during the Coronavirus pandemic was uncomfortable. Yes, we tried to make it fashionable. But by the time you have had it on it all day, after a while what happens? Read the rest of this entry

In Faith

1 John 5:4-5 “You see, every child of God overcomes the world, for our faith is the victorious power that triumphs over the world. So who are the world conquerors, defeating its power? Those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.” (TPT)

Check Up

Philip.4:6 “Don’t be anxious about things; instead, pray. Pray about everything. He longs to hear your requests, so talk to God about your needs and be thankful for what has come.” (Voice)

Calm Down!

Ephesians 4:26 “And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry.”

In Life

Psalm 107:2 “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy” (KJV, emphasis added)

Your Attitude

Prov.28:1 “The wicked flee when no man pursues them, but the [uncompromisingly] righteous are bold as a lion.” (AMPC)

Righteous Stand

Prov.28:1 “The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.” (NIV, emphasis added)

Will You?

Ps.50:10-12 “For all the animals of the forest are mine, and I own the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird on the mountains, and all the animals of the field are mine. If I were hungry, I would not tell you, for all the world is mine and everything in it.”

What are you sacrificing today that most people will not sacrifice so that you can live tomorrow as few people will? What are you sacrificing?

In Obedience

John 2:5 “But his mother told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
