Ever wonder why words are so very exciting and important to us? God’s words that is!
“The Lord God has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He awakens me morning by morning, He awakens my ear to hear as the learned.” (Isaías 50:4)
As a young girl I remember writing letters to family and friends and was always encouraged by their responses. I would also write about my pets, nature and creative writing. I enjoyed making cards (even to this day at 65 years of age.) I enjoyed writing as it would encourage others or just let them know that I cared. Later I enjoyed crafting, drawing and continued writings. Continue lendo
Ultimamente pensamentos me levaram de volta para os meus dias como uma mãe solteira criar quatro filhos. Cenas do passado inundaram volta como recordei os desafios que enfrentaram a minha família na preparação para cada ano escolar. Estas memórias são acionadas por conversas recentes sobre as necessidades de meus netos para o novo ano escolar que rapidamente se aproxima. Outras memórias apareceu de ver todos aqueles anúncios de volta às aulas.
Lembro-me de como os dias de verão chegou ao fim a emoção de estar fora da escola tinha o seu curso e os meus filhos, na verdade, queria voltar para a escola! Eles olharam para a frente para ter um novo professor, reunindo-se com velhos amigos, fazer novos, e compras de roupas e suprimentos necessários. Durante estes tempos medo tentaria segurar e me convencer de que eu não teria dinheiro suficiente até mesmo para o básico. Continue lendo
For years I had no idea that wrong thinking could cause havoc in one’s life.
The enemy has deceived many into thinking that it doesn’t matter what you think as long as your actions are all right. The truth of the matter is that eventually your thoughts will become actions if you entertain them long enough.
Negative thinking keeps one from reaching his potential in life. Often parents make the mistake of saying words to their children that may scar the child for years to come. Those words are not easily forgotten and because of the very impressionable mind of a child much damage is done that may affect them all of their lives. Continue lendo
I love reading God’s Word, even out loud, and receiving new revelation from it. In John, capítulo 9, several things caught my attention. In verses 2 - 5, the question was asked Jesus about the blind man. Basicamente, the conversation went like this (paraphrased). “Who did sin, this man, or his parents?” Jesus answered: “Neither, that the works of God should be made manifest in him.”
As you read the account you discover that Jesus personally made clay, anointed the blind man’s eyes with the clay and said, "Vá, wash in the pool of Siloam.” This is faith in action! Verso 9 diz: “Some said this is he when they saw him. Others said, “He is like him, but He (the blind man) dito: “I am he!" Continue lendo
Last week we ended with the assurance that if we as God’s people truly repent, it can turn our families and nation back to God and receive His blessing. Scripture teaches that when the righteous rule a nation is blessed. Individually and corporately we must first repent.
A powerful man of God, Charles Spurgeon, wrote about the water-downed gospel message and worldly church practices that were already apparent in his lifetime. I was led to read this after spending time with God regarding this devotion. I ask you to take a few more moments to read his teaching on this subject. Obrigado. Continue lendo
