  • “ Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment” (1 Corinthians 1:10).

    It was hardly a pleasant topic for dinnertime conversation—worms. Parasites, actually. But my daughter’s explanation was so fascinating that I didn’t give the setting a second thought as I listened to her tale and downed my linguini.

  •   Recently when I was praying concerning a heartfelt matter I began to remember some wonderful comforting Scriptures.

    First I want to remind you that our enemy has no intention of leaving us alone, especially if he thinks there is a notable weakness in our life. I have always felt like Satan could not read our mind- but he can plant seeds in our mind, if we don’t rebuke them. He can read out actions, also, many times we profess doubt by the very words that come out of our mouths.

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (Matthew 6:19-21).

  •  “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers, but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night” (See Psalm 1, RSV).

  •    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want (Psalm 23:1).

    In my younger years I questioned this verse of scripture, “I shall not want.” I wondered, why am I not to want the Lord as my shepherd? As I became more mature and gained more understanding of the scriptures I realized that God would not allow my need to go unmet.

  •    Did you ever think about what could be the most important thing you could think about? Sounds like a riddle, but it isn’t. It is you and I asking the question, “how will it be for me when I face judgment?”

    It is something we will all face someday.

  •    “Then the LORD stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me, ‘Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.  See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant’”  (Jeremiah 1:9-10).

  •   “ It is the Spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; . . . ” (See John 6:63a, RSV).

  •    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). While reading the whole chapter of Hebrews eleven, I can imagine God walking down the middle of a big hall similar to what we have here on earth as the “Hall of Fame”. I picture God painting out faithful people who please and obeyed him.
