Jesus Knows Me

google image

Jesus, who is actually one with God, created me. He knows everything about me ~ my past, my present and my future. He knows what I did, what I am doing and what I will do. Even if I were the only one to follow Jesus in the whole world He would have sent His son to die for my sins. That is how much He loves me!! I want to follow Jesus the rest of my life and be obedient to what He tells me to do.

Light for Today: I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me ~ just at the Father knows me and I know the Father~ and I lay down my life for the sheep. John 10:14-15

Pray In Secret

google image

Find a special place to pray. A place where you can go and no one even knows you are praying. A place where you can shut the door and talk to God all by yourself ~ where you can tell Him anything you want. A place where you personally get acquainted with your Heavenly Father. It is impossible to be a dedicated Christian without definite times of secret prayer.

Light for Today: But you, when you pray,go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place. Matthew 6:6

The Bible says to pray without ceasing. Let's think of that as always being aware of God. We realize His presence wherever we are: at the grocery store while shopping, as we cook dinner, while we are crafting... We welcome God wherever we are.

Light for Today: Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving. Colossians 4:2 NKJV

Why Worry

google image

Do You Worry?

Does it help to worry? Has worry ever dumped a pile of money on your desk to pay your bills? Has worry ever kept your children out of trouble? Have the sleepless nights and headaches caused by worrying ever solved any of your troubles? Worry changes nothing! Rather pray and listen to what God tells you to do. He will help you.

Light for Today: Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you. 1 Peter 5:7

Love Accepts

artist: Trina Clark

We can't take a person and pick only a few things to love about them ~ we must accept everything about them for it to be really LOVE. Maybe they're not so good at managing money or they have some health issues. We love them anyway and endure with them.

Light for Today: Love...bears all things, believes all things, endures all things. 1 Cor. 13:7 NKJV

His Majesty

google image

Have you seen His Majesty?
It's all around us...
The snow falling
The wind blowing
A kitten's purr
A baby's smile
Young love

Maybe you've experienced it in a personal way...
Sins forgiven
A relationship mended
A migraine healed

You were an eyewitness to HIS MAJESTY!

Light for Today: We were eyewitness of His majesty. 2 Peter 1:16

Sister' s Day

artist: Grandma George

Is the winter getting long and dreary? Plan a Sister's Day! If you are like me and don't have a sister, invite your sisters in Christ. Eat at a special restaurant, exchange small gifts you made yourself, anything to make the outing sweet. Use your imagination. The important thing is to share inspirations and snippets of your lives. Don't forget to thank God for the special blessing of "sisters!"

Light for Today: Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, ye righteous and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart. Psalm 32:11

We don't want to deliberately disobey God but sometimes we simply aren't listening. We're so busy running hither and yon that we forget to listen. That doesn't mean that we can't listen and be busy at the same time, because we most certainly can. It's all in the listening. Are you purposely listening for God's voice?

Light for Today: Then they said to Moses, "You speak with us and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die. Exodus 20:19

Impossible Goal

google image

Set an impossible goal this year. One that you know you can't keep unless you have help. One that you have to ask Jesus to help you constantly. Maybe you wake up in the morning slightly grumpy. Ask Jesus to help you wake up sunny. With His help you can wake up every morning with a smile and a cheery good morning. In this way Jesus will also become your very very very best friend!

Light for Today: My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:2 NLT

Suitcases & Burdens

google image

Did you know that it is easier to carry two heavy suitcases ~ one in each hand ~ than to carry only one? Two balances while one is lopsided. The same for burdens. Carry only yours and you are lopsided. Help your friend carry her burden and you are balanced. Try it and you will be blessed.

Light for Today: Carry each others burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2

Kindness in your eyes.

Light for Today: For the happy heart, life is a continual feast. Proverbs 15:15 NLT

Love One Another

artist: Trina Clark

Help others by grasping each opportunity to offer encouragement and assistance. Love one another no matter their color, race, church or creed. Everyone deserves love and encouragement.

Light for today: Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs. Proverbs 10:12

Live Simply

google image

Observe the lilies how they grow, they neither toil or spin ~ they simply are. Jesus knows our circumstances and if we stay focused on Him we will grow spiritually...just like the lilies of the field. Stay focused on Him and He will make use of every minute we have.

Light for Today: And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Matthew 6:28

Choose Wisely

google image

Choose wisely this year. We will each be faced with many choices but we need to remember that all our choices have eternal consequences. One of our wisest choices should be to grow spiritually.

Light for Today: All of us who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too, God will make clear to you. Phil. 3:15 NLT

God Will Take Care Of You

google image


Whenever I am tempted,

whenever clouds arise,

when song gives place to sighing,

when hope within me dies,

I draw the closer to Him,

from care he sets me free...

For His eye is on the sparrow,

and I know He watches over me.

Light for Today: Commit thy way unto the Lord, trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass. Psalm 37:5

Note: My Mother-in-law passed away early this morning so our year has begun with tears. However we have joy in our hearts because she has went to be with Jesus.
