What does the bible say about church to me?

6/30/10 - What does the bible say about church to me? - For He has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of His Son. Christ is also the head of the church, which is the body. He is the beginning, firstborn from the dead. So he is first in everything. Colossians1:10,18. Lord You rescued You me when I had no hope. The darkness that I was in was my fault but You didn't point blame You just loved me. You transferred my heart and soul in the midst of my circumstances before You provided me a way out of them. In the kingdom of Your Son I am Your daughter and I have been Your daughter in plenty and in little but You have never left me. I am so blessed that You are the head of my church, Your body, others You have transferred from darkness to light. They are an encouragement to me, strength to me, and a hope to me. They are You in the flesh. You are first in everything from the moment You spoke time into existence to the end of time when You will reign eternal but especially in me. Thank You for being the first to raise eternally from the dead to give me hope of eternal life in You.

What does the bible have to say about God’s faithfulness?

6/29/10 – What does the bible have to say about God's faithfulness? "For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken," says the Lord, who has mercy on you. Isaiah 54:10. Lord all around me are disasters: oil spills, hurricanes, earthquakes, violence, joblessness, and hopelessness. I think Lord that hopelessness is worst of all because it takes my eyes off of Your faithfulness and focuses on the problem not the solution. You are the solution. Your faithful love for me remains when nothing else around me does. You will never break Your covenant of blessing with me. Lord I don't always feel blessed especially in the midst of devastation but You are so faithful when I am faltering. Though everyone around me may fail , You will never break Your covenant with me. You have chose me and I am holy and dearly loved. Thank You Lord.

What does the bible have to say about the Holy Spirit?

6/28/10 – What does the bible have to say about the Holy Spirit? Don't you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body. 1Corinthians6:19-20. Thank you Lord for my health that I can influence those in my world by doing all you have given me to do. I lift up those just starting their lives, those struggling to keep their lives and I know any life we have is precious and we have for a reason. I pray you would meet their needs and help me to be a light. My life has meaning by what the Holy Spirit living in and through me can do. He is the best gift I have ever received because through him I know the things freely given me by God and I have direct access to God. Thank you for the high price You paid for me by dying on the cross, I can never repay it. I desire to honor You today because I am Yours.

What does the bible have to say about the grace of God?

6/25/10 - What does the bible have to say about the grace of God? For the Lord is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what's right. Psalm 84:11. Lord You are my sun to light my day in this dark world and grow me through the trials I walk through each day. Lord You are my shield from the attacks of those against me. You give me grace I don't deserve, can't earn or repay. It really is all I need and the best thing I can give. You give me glory as a child or God, who can boldly approach You because I have a heavenly calling. You withhold no good thing from me when I do right so Lord remind me I am not always right with You, daily I fail. You also know what is truly good for me not just what I want. Lord I don't want to pray for my will and desire to be fulfilled. I desire the good thing You see for me to be fulfilled so I can be a blessing to others which is a blessing to You and me.

What the bible has to say about a carnal mind?

6/24/10-JIMMY HAS A SECOND INTERVIEW TODAY AT 11AM PLEASE PRAY FOR GOD'S WILL. - What the bible has to say about a carnal mind? – Those who live to only satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. Galatians 6:8. Lord forgive me for failing You when I put my own wants before Yours. I know when I am in the wrong because I see my situation as hopeless and I am bitter and angry due to the death of my joy. Lord it amazes me that when I live to please You and get my eyes off the 'woe is me' I am so blessed to see the life I can bring to others through the Spirit which in turn reminds me of my eternal life in You. My natural carnal mind wants to flee from You. My mind in Your Spirit wants to run to You. Remind me whichever way I am running is where my mind is. I am only complete in You.

What does the bible have to say about obedience?

6/23/10 – What does the bible have to say about obedience? Look today I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse! You will be blessed if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today. But you will be cursed if you reject the Lord your God and turn away from Him and worship gods you have not known before. Deuteronomy 11:26-28. Lord thank You for speaking to me so clearly each and every day. Today is the day, a new day, tomorrow has its own worry and yesterday can't be changed. I choose Your blessing Lord. I have lived with the curse of sorrow, hurt, despair, and fear for too long. When I started this journey with You, I wrote because to speak only brought tears. But through this walk of obedience I have been so blessed. I would have never have chose this road to walk to get here but I would not have become who I am this morning if I hadn't. I know the curse of rejecting You and I can't go back there. There is a tomorrow coming that will change my life in this world but not for my eternity so today I choose You.

What does the bible say about serving God?

6/22/10 – What does the bible say about serving God? – But be careful to obey all the commands and the instructions that Moses gave to you. Love the Lord your God, walk in all His ways, obey His commands, hold firmly to Him, and serve Him with all your heart and soul. Joshua22:5. Lord You ask me to obey the ten commands You gave not all the commands man adds to them.

  1. No other God.
  2. No idols.
  3. No misusing Your name.
  4. Rest on Sabbath.
  5. Honor parents.
  6. No murder.
  7. No adultery.
  8. No stealing.
  9. No lying.
  10. No lusting.

Lord as I love You, walk with You, obey You, hold onto You, and serve You not as a have to but as the most blessed and precious thing in my whole life obeying those ten things come natural. I wouldn't have any other man but my Jimmy, idolize another man, curse Jimmy, ignore time with Jimmy, disrespect Jimmy and those he loves, murder him, cheat on him, steal from him, lie to him, or desire any other but him. So how or why could or would I do that to You the lover of my soul? Thank You for loving me Lord more than I know. Chastityhead:0)

What does the bible say about praise?

6/21/10 – What does the bible say about praise? – You are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, and God's very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9. Lord I am so awe struck that You would choose me. My purpose is to be Your priest by sharing Your word and Your love with those around me. I might not be able to speak for the nation Lord but I do speak for my home and we love You Lord and when others encamp around to destroy, You are our shield and fortress. Even though every created thing in all the known and unknown places is Yours and Your creation You still personally consider me Your precious possession, I am Your child. Show me every opportunity today Lord to live your goodness. I can see now how dark the lives around me and I remember how dark my own life was without You. I pray You can use me to show Your wonderful light. Chastityhead:0)

What does the bible say about eternity?

6/18/10 – What does the bible say about eternity? – I tell you the truth; those who listen to my message and believe in God that sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death to life. John5:24. Lord I am so comforted to know that I can always come to You for the truth which is not always easy but it is always right. Your message is to admit I need You, believe You are the Son of God, and confess my sins to You. Even though each day seems to drag on while I am in it, I can look back on more than ten thousand days and wonder where they went. Yet I can look forward to an eternity without time, that will be filled with an eternity with You my Lord who loved me enough to die for me before I was created. From the moment I asked for forgiveness from You I started living in that eternity because this no longer is my home. Thank You, Lord, for giving me hope. Chastityhead:0)

What does the bible say about love?

6/17/10 – What does the bible say about love? – This is real love – not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other, God lives in us, and His love is brought to full expression in us. 1 John4:10-12. Lord I couldn't ever love You as much as You love me. You sacrificed Your only Son to forgive of my sins so we could have a relationship. Your Son not only willingly sacrificed Himself so I can fellowship with You right now but even now prepares a home for me in heaven where the church and all that love Him will be His bride. Forgive me when I don't love the slow person in front of me on the road, the angry person that wants my help at work, and all the other people that inconvenience me throughout my day. I want to be a true expression of You today. Grow me to express Your love in sacrifice. Chastityhead:0)

What does the Bible say about faith?

6/16/10 – What does the Bible say about faith? – For every child of God defeats this evil world and we achieve this victory by our faith. 1 John 5:4. Lord thank You that I am Your child and that I can come boldly to Your throne with all my cares and concerns at any time and You are there for me. You have been growing within me the ability to conquer all things opposing me in my life since the moment I accepted You as my Savior. I don't always feel like a victor. Sometimes the things in the deep dark places within me cause my heart to break and the tears to flow just thinking of them. Only in You do I have the faith to stop this from overtaking me. I have the confidence that heaven is eternal and You are with me in the temporal; that hope is all I need. I am assured that even though I don't see the silver lining now all is held in Your hand and will bring about Your glory. My faith is in You. Chastityhead J

What do I do when I am waiting on God?

6/15/10 – What do I do when I am waiting on God? – We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield. Psalm 33:20. Let all that I am wait patiently before God, for my hope is in Him. Psalm 62:5. You are my hope, Lord. You alone know my heart. My desire to have a marriage bound together in You. My desire to have my children love You and have a relationship with You that they share with others. My desire for me to be who You have called me to be in the time You have given me. Help me Lord, help me not to lose hope that You are in control and You will show me clearly Your plan and purpose so I can be in line with You. Shield me Lord from those that would want to snatch my hope. Help me to wait patiently for Your perfect time. I love You, speak to me Lord.

What do I do when I don’t understand God’s ways?

6/14/10 – What do I do when I don't understand God's ways? – Ask me and I will tell you remarkable things you do not know. Jeremiah 33:3 –Lord I ask You and I can't explain how that is to someone that doesn't meet with You consistently, they don't understand. I can ask You in written prayer, in my heartfelt words, in silence within my thoughts. I can ask You because talking to is as natural as talking to my Jimmy. You answer me just as amazingly. You speak to me through Your word by allowing me to read in my daily time with You just the right word, like today, that speaks to my need. You speak to me through these times while I write and pray, I can feel You leading and guiding me. You speak to me the midst of a trial and all I can do is call out and I know You are there because I have a peace. You speak to me through those that have a relationship with You as they share how You impact them. You speak to me when I just sit quiet enough to hear. The remarkable things You tell me that I don't know aren't always the answers that I seek but are always the ones I need. Then I find the answers I seek aren't so important. I don't always understand but I do know that You know and will work it all out for good. ChastityheadJ

What do I do when I am deserted by loved ones?

6/11/10 -What do I do when I am deserted by loved ones? –Those who know Your name trust in You, for You, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for You. Psalm 9:10 – Lord I have never met You face to face and can't pretend to understand You, Your reasons or why and how everything is as it is. I know that in the most low, most fearful, most painful times of my life I had to only say the name of JESUS and I felt calm; peace to rise up, to sleep peaceful, to accept healing. I trust You to work out all things for Your good purpose, to restore what the world eats away at me each day, to prepare an eternal home for me nothing can destroy or take away. You don't abandon me, let me down, or fail. Help me to forgive those that fall short when I am in need and quickly remind me how very many times I fall short for You and You love me with an everlasting love. I search for You in the beauty of this morning, in the mid day break from the constant, and at the end of the day home safe with my loved ones, You are the only One that is, will and always walk me through my day. Thank You that I am never alone. Chastityhead:0)

What do I do when I have marital problems?

6/10/10 – What do I do when I have marital problems? – Then the Lord God said, "It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a helper that is just right for him." Genesis 2:18. Lord You spoke everything into existence. You speak to the wind to be still, You speak to the dead to rise, and You speak to those in need to be healed. It is not good for those You have called to be married to be alone. Time apart from my beloved is consumed with when we can be together again. I want to be his helper, not mother, not maid, not roommate. Show me and speak to me on how I can best help, serve and come alongside my Jimmy as his best friend, his lover, his soul mate. When disagreements do come, remind me Lord that You made me just right for him and he for me. Our relationship is for better, worse, sickness, health, forsaking all others, as long as we live not that of my kids, friends, or family.

What do I do when I have financial troubles?

6/8/10- What do I do when I have financial troubles?

Once I was young and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread. Psalm 38:25-Lord You have, You are and You always will provide. Lord I know that You will not abandon our family. These are tough times, stretching our faith and I ask for forgiveness for losing focus for Your ultimate goal which is to draw us ever closer to You. You have blessed us so abundantly and even though this chapter in Jim's job is closing I know that the next door You open will hold more opportunities to shine as a light, love with Your heart, serve as Your servant, and care for others as You care for us. Help me not lose focus. ChastitytheadJ

What do I do when I have troubles in my life?

6/7/10- What do I do when I have troubles in my life? We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 2Corinthians 4:8-9 – Lord I am pressed on both sides with trying to please myself and my family and others while trying to live how You have called me. Thank You Lord that I am not crushed because You are a shield about me. I am perplexed by the future and don’t know what’s in store. I do not despair though because my hope is in You. I am hunted down when I stand firm in You but yet You never leave me or forsake me. I am knocked down by the heartache and pain the decisions those closest to me make yet I know that You have begun a good work You will bring it to completion. You are my all in all. chastity head :)

What do I do when I need confidence?

6/4/10 – What do I do when I need confidence? So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that He has promised. Hebrews 10:35-36 Lord my confident trust comes from being in Your word, being in prayer, and then seeing and believing in the miracles in my life. My reward is Your kingdom not my paycheck, not my things, not even my family or friends because all these will pass away. I lack patient endurance; I don’t even think I understood it until I had my teenagers. But now Lord I have a better understanding and am clinging to my need to do Your will in the midst all the uncontrollable circumstances in my life. Lord I wrap myself in the promise of an eternal home, of a lifelong marriage centered on You, and of my teens who have been trained in You to one day walk confidently with You. chastity head :)

what do I do when I doubt God?

6/3/10- What do I do when I doubt God? And don’t be concerned about what to eat and drink. Don’t worry about such things. These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers all over the world but Your Father already knows your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and He will give you everything you need. Luke 12:29-31. Lord forgive me for being concerned about what our family’s future holds with Jimmy’s job ending. I know my worry causes me to not hear You, trust You, and let go to You. Lord You have called me to be different than the unbeliever and thank You for reminding me this morning that I am complete in You. I rest assured in You, I am confident in You, and I am overjoyed that You have called me and You are faithful and my future is in Your hands.  chastityhead

What do I do when I am grieving?

6/2/10 What do I do when I am grieving? Sing for joy, O heavens! Rejoice O earth! Burst into song O mountains! For the Lord has comforted His people and will have compassion on them in their suffering. Isaiah 49:13 Lord I sing for joy that this is not my home. Lord I rejoice that You are my God and You hold all things in the the palm of Your hand and no one can snatch me from Your hand. Lord I burst into a song of thanksgiving for all the things I do have instead of a song of lamenting the things I don't have. Lord You have comforted me when I lost loved ones, when I couldn't change decisions or actions made, and when I felt hopeless. You had compassion on me by giving me other people to love, by putting the decision to trust You in my heart and purpose to act on it, and by filling me with hope for the future again because this is not my home. chastity head :)

What do I do when I feel lukewarm spiritually?

6/1/10 What do I do when I feel lukewarm spiritually? But watch out! Be careful to never forget what yourself have seen. Do not let these memories escape from your mind as long as you live! And be sure to pass them on to your children and grandchildren. Deuteronomy 4:9 Lord I have seen hearts change that i never thought would, lives born by Your grace alone, provision when there was none, You divinely watching over my kids when I always can't, friends who come alongside at just the right time, all my needs met, some wants met, too. Lord let me not be lukewarm toward You. Lord let me always remind my children and myself of how You are who I am on fire for and to be cold toward You is denying all the wonder You have blessed me with thus far.
