I've heard this verse, Nehemiah 8:10, many times but have never read the context around it. In Nehemiah 8:1-9 the people gathered as Ezra read God's word. The word was presented so that the people could understand it - they were hungry to hear it and...

A few weeks ago I shared a post about feeling like I am in a pit. Today I wanted to share more from one of the verses mentioned in that post - Psalm 40:1-2. David starts this Psalm off by saying he waited patiently for the Lord and...

In 1 Peter, trials and suffering are mentioned several times. We know that as Christians we will face trials. It is never a question of if, it's a question of when. It's important to remember that every trial we face is a refining process. Verse 6...

Last week was a rough week. Honestly, the last two months have been rough, but after being very down about Kai, more heartache came. While at work my sweet co-worker got a call from her daughter that her daughter had found her fiance dead in...

Last week, I shared Proverbs 23:7 which tells us that our thoughts turn into who we become. Today I'm sharing Philippians 4:8 - Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything...

I keep hearing/reading this verse so it's time to share it. Proverbs 23:7 tells us that what we think in our heart is who we are. Our thoughts are not only who we are, but they turn into what or who we will become. When...

While we were at the healing service yesterday, one of the ladies prayed Isaiah 41:10 over me. There is so much power in this verse. This verse starts out with a command and a promise, which tells us not to fear and not to be dismayed, because He is...
