Teach by Example

1 12-2 1 Psalm 34 11

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:11

Come, my children, listen to me:  I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

 

The best gift you can give your children is to teach them to obey and follow the Lord which leads to wisdom, prosperity and a happy life. Teaching children to fear the Lord doesn’t mean they should be afraid of Him, it means they should respect Him and put Him first in their lives. Fear of the Lord requires awe, reverence, adoration, honor, worship, faith, trust, thankfulness, and love.  We teach these to our children not just by word but by example. Share Jesus, the greatest gift of all, with your children.

Give Hope

1 11-26 1 Psalm 9 18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 9:18

But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.

 

As we immerse ourselves in the Christmas season let’s not forget those in need.  There are so many ways we can help the poor.  Ask God to lead you in finding a way to help those in need this holiday season and throughout the year. Let God work through you as you donate your time, money, food, or services. A little goes a long way and gives so much hope to many.

The Lifter of My Head

 

1 11-24 1 Psalm 3 3.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 3:3

But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

 

Thanksgiving Day is over and not everyone has or was able to spend time with family and friends.  For some, the holidays can be lonely and even a sad time. I sometimes feel it too. I miss loved ones that have passed and those who can’t be near me. But we are not alone, God is with us in every moment of every day. If we focus on the Lord, his goodness, and our blessings He will get us through it.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 6: Thankful for Spiritual Freedom

1 11-19 1 Psalms 100 4

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 100:4

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

 

I am thankful for the freedom to be able to enter into the house of the Lord to praise and worship my Lord and Savior.  Yes, we have a constitutionally protected right to religious freedom and that’s great, but I’m talking about the spiritual freedom we received when Jesus died on the cross and paid the price for our sins.  I’m talking about abiding in God’s truth which has set us free from a life of sin and death.  Because of God’s love and mercy, we can have a relationship with Him, we can come into His presence to praise and worship Him and for that I am thankful.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 3: Thankful for Another Day of Life

1 11-16 1 Psalm 106 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 106:1

Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

 

God is good all the time and all the time God is good.  I woke up this morning, but not everyone did, so I am grateful for another day of life.  No matter what is going on in your life there is always something to be thankful for.  I’m thankful for God’s love and mercy.  I’m thankful He never gave up on me even when I didn’t deserve another chance.  Life is a precious gift from God and I’m going to be the best me I can be and live my life for Jesus.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 1: Thankful for All God’s Wonderful Deeds

1 11-14 1 Psalm 9 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 9:1

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

 

Thanksgiving Day is quickly approaching and I thought it would be nice to share some of the things I am thankful for.  Today I want to share that I am thankful for my relationship with the Lord and for His amazing grace.  Because of His mercy and forgiveness, I am no longer the same. My heart is filled with gratitude and praise for all the things He has done and continues to do in my life.  He has renewed my spirit and because of this I want to share His goodness with the world.

A Change of Heart and Spirit

1 11-3 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:   Psalm 51:10

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

 

Even David, a man after God’s heart sinned against God, but he recognized that he needed a profound change of heart and spirit and he knew he could not make this change on his own. No matter how much you try to change on your own it’s not going to happen until you give it to God.  He is the creator of your heart and the only one who can renew your soul and spirit.
