Growing Stronger One Day at a Time.

“God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain,”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭6:18-19‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Rest in the Lord

“For God alone my soul waits in silence and quietly submits to Him, For my hope is from Him.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭62:5‬ ‭AMP

Live for the sake of Christ

“But whatever former things were gains to me [as I thought then], these things [once regarded as advancements in merit] I have come to consider as loss [absolutely worthless] for the sake of Christ [and the purpose which He has given my life].”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:7‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Acknowledge the Lord when planning:

“In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:6‬ ‭AMP‬

Love God Greatly

“You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and mind and with all your soul and with all your strength [your entire being].”
‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭6:5‬ ‭AMP‬‬

The Battlefield of the Mind

“We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ,”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭10:5‬ ‭AMP

Our Steps are established by the Lord

“The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him;”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭37:23‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Jesus is our everything!

Lord…

Help us love on others as long as life lasts,
Help us not become spiritually dull,
Help us be strong in our faith,
Help us endure hardships.
Help us stay on the narrow road.
Help us make wise decisions.
Help us be humble and merciful.

We will keep on doing what is good and never give up.

We will honor the harvest of Your blessings, Lord.

We humbly come to you and ask for guidance, wisdom and discernment as we proceed with our daily journey.

Jesus is our everything!

Thank You for preparing us to be better equipped. We want to be faithful servants in Your Kingdom, Jesus, one day at a time!

Your Spirit gives us LIFE and joy.

In Jesus’ name we courageously pray and boldly praise, Amen

His Never-Ending Grace

“Therefore let us [with privilege] approach the throne of grace [that is, the throne of God’s gracious favor] with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find [His amazing] grace to help in time of need [an appropriate blessing, coming just at the right moment].”HEBREWS‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭AMP

“but Christ is faithful as a Son over His [Father’s] house. And we are His house if we hold fast our confidence and sense of triumph in our hope [in Christ].” HEBREWS‬ ‭3:6‬ ‭AMP‬‬

“O LORD God of hosts, who is like You, O mighty LORD? Your faithfulness surrounds You [as an intrinsic, unchangeable part of Your very being].” PSALMS‬ ‭89:8‬ ‭AMP

Lord,

I enjoy meditating on Your Word day and night. The more I reflect on Truth, the closer I am to You, my ABBA Father.

Your never-ending grace, morning mercies, and presence are palpable in time of distress.

The closer I am to You, Lord, the more confident and hopeful I am about the future. You are my only Refuge and Hope until my last breath on earth.

You are a faithful God.

In Jesus’ name I praise,

Amen.‬‬

120 Days Challenge in the Book of Psalms

Friends,

I would like to extend an invitation for the upcoming 120 days Challenge starting on September 1❣️

As you may already know, I love the book of Psalms.

We will complete the entire book of Psalms, 150 chapters, this coming Fall.

Every year during the Holiday season, I’m in touch with personal losses, regrets, loneliness, and grief so I have decided to establish a new tradition this year! I want to read and journal the book of Psalms every Holiday season just like I did when the Lord rescued me from the pit of darkness.

In Christ, there is victory and He is our ABBA Father, Refuge and He is our only Soulmate.

Join our challenge today…

I would love for all of you to come along side of me every year.

We will begin the #120daysBookofPsalmsChallenge on Sunday, September 01, as I mentioned earlier.

“Read the Book of Psalms, 1-2 chapter(s) a day”

Mondays thru Fridays, one chapter a day.

Saturdays & Sundays, two chapters a day.

We will be reading one or two chapters a day, inscribing the verse in 1-2 translations, writing down our observations, inscribing the cross references of the selected verse and journaling daily including Sundays for 120 days.

Yes, it will be quite intense BUT it will be quite enriching… the Holy Spirit will embrace our souls one day at a time.

I will share a fact or two from the commentary BE and if you read a commentary on your own, you are welcome to share with the group. You will then earn an extra ticket to enter the general drawing.

If you choose color coding, you will also earn an extra ticket for the general drawing.

You will enter the general drawing for the following:

* for each day you journal and share,

* extra ticket for sharing commentary,

* extra ticket for color Coding.

The Grand Prize winner of the #120daysBookofPsalmsChallenge will obtain the entire Bible Reading Journal Series for 2020 or seven volumes of your choice in case you want to choose one or two of your favorites, a retail value of $80.00 (this is for the person who journals for 120 days)

Note, if there are more than one winner, these winners will be part of a “special” drawing.

For the second winner prize:

The winner will receive the #120 days challenge tote.

For the third winner prize:

The next 3 winners of the “general“ drawing will win a pencil case, “Rise Up and Journal.”

Who’s counting for the #120daysChallenge?! I am.
