    Sunday’s Prayer: For Children

    Although I don’t have children of my own yet, though I will in God’s timing, I have plenty of friends and family members with kids and wanted to write out a prayer for them. This prayer is for children of any age. Father God, I pray that You will surround our children with Your protection. Keep them from the dangers of this dark world and surround them with Your angels. I pray also that You will surround them with Your favor. Cause them to prosper and succeed at whatever they do and to have favor with God and man as Jesus did. Finally, I pray that You will bless them…

    Sunday’s Prayer: For Marriage

    Every Sunday I am going to write a prayer for specific areas of our lives. Today’s is for those of us who are married and it’s from a wife’s perspective, but if you happen to be a husband you can just replace certain words in your mind! Dear Lord, I lift up my marriage to You today. I give You my husband and our relationship together. Make me into the godly wife You designed for me to be. Help me to see my husband through Your eyes of love. Help me to trust in You, to be obedient to You, and to follow You in all things. Help me submit…

    Hearing from God

    I’m going to take a break from my series on sin because God has been speaking to my heart and gave me some things He wants me to talk about on my blog for the week. Today’s topic: Hearing from God. In my quiet time this week I heard the Lord say to my heart that He wants to speak to all His children, but that many of us just aren’t listening. Maybe we don’t take the time to really sit down and have a daily quiet time with Him, or when we do have a quiet time we’re focused on speaking to Him ourselves (prayer) but we don’t just…

    Happy Easter (and Sunday Prayer)

    Happy Easter everyone! Today we’re celebrating the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ! Because of Him, death was conquered and we can now have eternal life in heaven when we accept His free gift of salvation. Praise be to God for Jesus’ sacrifice! And, unlike other religious leaders people try to worship, Jesus didn’t stay dead – He came back and ascended (alive) into Heaven after appearing to many witnesses. That is so amazing! We should all be thankful today and remember the gift we’ve been given on the amazing day of Easter. Every Sunday I’m going to write a prayer for the coming week, so here is today’s…

    Waiting on God

    Do you hate waiting on God? I definitely do. The problem is, it’s a big part of our lives as Christians. We are always waiting on God for something: a spouse, children, the right job, money, blessings, etc. There is never a time in our lives when we won’t be waiting for Him. He’s God and His timing, while perfect, never matches ours. My husband and I are going through that right now. God has made some promises to us that we believe by faith are from Him, but month after month goes by and there is no answer, no blessing, nothing. And the longer I wait, the more doubt…

    Love Does Not Rejoice in Evil

    In today’s post, I’m going to continue my study of love found in the Bible passage of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. I want to focus on the verse, “Love does not rejoice in evil.” I guess our first question is, what is evil? Let’s look at the Word of God. 20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.” (Mark 7:20-23)  29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They…
