A calm moment

A calm moment is a rare find in any woman’s chaotic day. But she needs it. She needs the moment to refocus and refresh her soul. She needs the inspiration to find God in the mess and the mundane that often defines her. She craves the solitude of a moment with the Master to quiet the storms. She needs to laugh and remember why she loves being who she is.

Do you ever get a calm moment? You need to take one every day no matter what or where you are. God needs you to be free of restrictions, distractions and any other worldly obstacles in your way.

Reflecting

 I am Having one of those moments-no hours, wait it's days where I find myself just reflecting on so many blessed moments in my life. I find myself smiling and then all of the sudden reality sets back in as the voices I hear are getting closer and more distinguished. The grand boys are playing around instead of sleeping, my husband is walking past me mumbling under his breathe, my daughter is shush...ing the boys to be quiet and then to top every thing off my computer is acting crazy again.

God Makes You Secure

God Makes You Secure-From Devotionals Daily
 
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.— Isaiah 41:10
Question:Who among us never struggles with insecurity?
Answer:No one.
Insecurity is a universal phenomenon that paralyzes some folks and sends others into a frantic scramble.
Insecurity basically means we feel uncertain. We can’t relax because we are fearful that something negative might happen to us, and we are unsure as to how to respond.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17I love the classic movie, “Anne of Green Gables.” One of my favorite lines from Anne is, “Tomorrow is a brand new day with no mistakes in it!

The Armor of God

Lately I have been talking to a fair amount of women who have been trying to dodge the fiery arrows of the enemy. When I tell them that I have been doing the same but my defense is scripture such as Ephesians 6:16 - Take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Faith forms an impenetrable wall of fire around you and with scripture no weapon formed against you shall prosper. So, the next time you are feeling overwhelmed by the enemy please make sure that you have your full body of armor on.

Devote yourselves to prayer...

 
Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving: Colossians 4:2 NASB
 
 I just love all the different versions ofthe bible when it comes to certain passages like today's. In the Message Bible it reads:Pray diligently. Stay alert, with your eyes wide open in gratitude. Or in the NIV version it says it this way-Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.I chose the NASB version because I like the word attitude which if we are all honest with ourselves we all can have an attitude of some sorts and most of the time it's not one of thanksgiving.

The Power of the Cross

 
No matter how weary you may be, how discouraged, howbruised by life and its problems, The Power of the Cross can truly impact yourdaily life and spiritual growth. What is the power of the cross? Jesus ofcourse!!  He endured the cross for youand I and all the other you and I’s out there. Could we do what Jesus did? Comeon be honest to yourself? I honestly don’t think I could withstand all thebeatings or the humiliation from all the scoffers’ day in and day out.
 
The Power of the Cross is there for you and I to notonly learn from it but to allow us to                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             feel the Lords forgiveness, love, grace, mercyand so much more.

Are you taking in all your moments

 
In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps. (Proverbs 16:9)
 
Are you taking in all your moments?
 
Ahhhh... a moment to catch my breath, a moment to hear the sound of nothing, it’s quiet the stars are shining so bright this morning and the air is cool and crisp as I take in a deep long breath. Good morning Father, I love you and thank you for this moment of peace so I may reflect on what you brought to me yesterday and thinking did I do all I could do to honor you not only yesterday but each day you give me?

A Sweet Perfume

A Sweet Perfume
 
 
 
This week as we gather with family and friends for Thanksgiving let us be reminded of the sweet fragrance we can be to others.
 
Follow God's example therefore, as dearly loved children andwalk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us asa fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:1-2
 
Do any of you just get so frustrated and are getting ready to lose that one last nerve left in your body when someone will wave you over and want to share with you all their happy talk?
