I am not afraid of the ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side. Psalm 3:6

Experts say on average I have about 2,000 thoughts an hour. From rise to rest I am consciously aware of my thoughts 14 hours a day so multiply that by two and I have about 28,000 fleeting thoughts. Some are productive like what I need to do, plans I need to make, others are judgement like what others are doing, how others look, still there are the hopeful thoughts when I think about the futu...

There is no one like the God of Israel. He rides across the heavens to help you, across the skies in majestic splendor. Deuteronomy 33:26

He rides across the heavens to help me. In Genesis 1:7-8 God created a space between the waters of the earth and the waters of the “heavens” and he called that space “sky” so every time I am outside I make it a point to look up to the heavens. Every time I pray with my hands and head lifted upward toward the heavens...

For the LORD watches over the path of the godly. He watches everyone closely, examining every person on earth. He watches over those who fear Him, those who rely on His unfailing love. He watches every movement of the nations; let no rebel rise in defiance. We are the people He watches over, the flock under His care. If only we would listen to His voice today! He will not let you stumble the One who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, He who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps...

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Romans 10:10

I came across this Scripture a few days ago and it has stuck with me since. “Made right with God” I continually repeat. When I make a mistake, when I say the wrong thing, when I don’t do the right thing to live a life of ease I think to myself this is not who I am, Because God said He made me right, right with Him....

I will offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of the LORD. Psalm 116:17

Thankfulness is a sacrifice because to be honest I am more quick to think of things I lack, the things I think I need to be happy, the people I wish would change because as we know I am so perfected but a sacrifice of thanksgiving is something I have to consciously decided to do. To purposely remind myself of all the good things God has done for me. I have it written down because it d...

“Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. But when it is bad, your body is filled with darkness.” Luke 11:34

I once had eyes that could not see that the way I was living my life was dark indeed. I did things without a second thought as to who I was hurting even if I brought that harm upon myself it didn’t really matter to me because in the end I got what I wanted what I thought I coul...

My hope comes from these 4 simple words repeated throughout Scripture:

What’s more I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you. Genesis 28:15

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand....

That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our Spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

If t...

At this juncture in my life I am thinking about the hope of restoration found in Jeremiah chapter 31 because to be honest the stresses I face are no different than most. Right now we are struggling in our finances, we overextended ourselves over the summer and are paying for it in the fall. We spent what we didn’t have to spend and now we find ourselves in debt yet again. Disappointed that we didn’t save more for the unexpected things like tires, AC repair, additional purchases fo...

And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.*(In Greek have put on Christ.) Galatians 3:27

“Put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.” Alarm clock rings at 520am I chug down a glass of juice, wash my face, brush my hair, pull it up, put on my workout pants, a faded t-shirt and shoes and head out the door within 10 minutes of opening my eyes. I greet the moon, my day starts before sunrise. My shower is the ...
