When I was growing up, I used to hear the saying, "Sticks and stones can break my bones, but WORDS will never hurt me." I'm sure you heard it, too, probably more than once. Oh my, nothing could have been further from the truth! My brother and I used to get in some pretty nasty name-calling sessions from time to time. Being raised in a "Christian in name only" home, we were not taught to love and respect each other. I remember a glass ashtray flying through the air, as well. Thankfully, his aim wasn't very good...haha  Okay, enough about my childhood.

God's word tells us that "death and life are in the power of the tongue." Prov. 18:21 It goes on to say that "those who love it will eat it's fruit." If we could only see the choice we have each day to either bless or curse with our WORDS. I know that over the years I have spoken things out of my mouth that did not bring life, and if I could go back and undo them, I certainly would. But, once we utter them, they have gone out either to edify (bless) or to harm someone.

This verse also tells us that whichever one we love the most, life or death, will be on our tongue, meaning that whatever we feed on the most, will eventually come out of our mouth. So, the good news is...we have a choice in the matter. We can choose to feed on His goodness, His word, His faithfulness each and every day. Then our words will line up with His words. Our words will bless and not curse.
I pray blessings on your life today!

This is the invitation...

"A certain man gave a great supper and invited many, and sent his servant at supper time to say to those who were invited, 'Come, for all things are now ready.' But they all with one accord began to make excuses. The first said to him, 'I have bought a piece of ground, and I must go and see it. I ask you to have me excused.' And another said, 'I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them. I ask you to have me excused.' Still another said, 'I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.'"  Luke 14:16-20

The master of the supper, (who represents Jesus) then said to the servant, "For I say to you that none of those men who were invited shall taste my supper." [The master referring to those who were invited but refused to attend.]  Luke 14:24 in quotes

What is your reply to Jesus' invitation to come and dine at the marriage supper of the Lamb? Will you give an excuse? Or will you be attending?
[Rev. 19:9 "Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'"]

You Are Healed!

"Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered Him stricken by God, smitten by Him, and afflicted.

But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him,

and by His wounds we are healed." Isa. 53:4-5 NIV

It has been DONE!

See your sickness today on the body of Christ. See your brokenness on the body of Christ. See your worry and anxiety on His body. See your depression put upon Him. See your financial lack or poverty put upon Him. He took it all upon His body on that cross. He did that for you and for me.

He accomplished that so that we could enjoy PEACE. Peace in our physical body, peace in our minds, peace in our finances. What a Savior! Receive from Him today what He paid such a great price for.  He loves you!

In Christ

Two little words, but oh, two such important little words. The crux of living the Christian life is knowing who we are in Christ.

Today, I've been listening to Pastor Lawson Perdue teach on "Resurrection Realities." What a great series of teaching CD's! I recommend them to anyone who wants to go further and learn more about their identity in Christ. This is where we find Victory. This is where we find Hope. This is where we find our very Existence. In Him.

If you'd like to get the series for yourself and grow in the knowledge of your own identity, click the link below.

God is Good!

This is a bit of an understatement. Well, okay, more than a bit.

In my reading this morning, (as if we didn't already know) Psalm 145
talks about His goodness. I especially picked up on verse 7. which says, "They
shall utter the memory of Your great goodness, And shall sing of Your righteousness." We have songs that talk about God's goodness, but none are really able to express the depth of His goodness. I don't believe we can fully know it until we reach heaven. I only know what He has done in my life; He has given me new desires (that line up with His desires), He protected me, even when I didn't belong to Him; He has healed many, many hurts; He has given me new life. For all these and more, Lord, I praise You!

What has He done in your life?

Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever! He healed then...and He heals now.
Our healing has been provided for in the atonement, just as our salvation was provided for. If you are sick in your body today and need healing, let your faith be strengthened by watching this awesome healing testimony below.

Creation is evidence of God's existence. David and I went camping recently in Buena Vista, CO. What a beautiful place. The mountains, including Mt. Princeton, the smell of the pine trees, the beautiful birds, (the hummingbirds put on quite a show) the Arkansas River, the cactus flowers and much more.

We wouldn't have all of that without a Creator. He is the grand Designer of the nature we so enjoy. Being out in nature is very therapeutic, but I really don't believe it's nature itself that brings us such peace and tranquility. It is the God of nature. It is the One who made all of it. A person can try to deny the existence of God, but in his heart he knows there is a God. God built that knowledge into every person.
