Weapons of Defense: Fighting For Your Soul

Preparing for battle means gathering the right weapons of defense. Fighting for our souls is to fight for our lives.  Dearest Readers, I pray you are being fed well with Mornings In the Word. As my Soul Sister would say, we are in negative numbers. I will miss sharing a daily Word with you. Time in His Word is my life, my survival guide in The Wilderness. Tempted by Satan, Jesus himself pointed the way for us in the wilderness. We learn the best weapons of defense by the Son of God. “Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit...

Characteristics of Spiritual Growth

“Complacency is a deadly foe of all spiritual growth.” A. W. Tozer Dearest Readers, My growing up days I spent longing for growth. I wanted to grow a bit taller. Grow into a bigger clothing size.

Answer your calling, serve from your sweet spot and stop looking over your shoulder, comparing your ministry to someone else. Serve where you are planted. “If I want him to remain until I come,” Jesus answered, “what is that to you? As for YOU follow me.” John 21:22 (CSB-Emphasis Mine) Dearest Reader, I want you to know, as God gives me words to pen, they come from a place of deep work in my own heart.

A Prayer For Your Sunday: Psalms 19

Praying Scripture from Psalm 19 A prayer for your Sunday from Psalm 19 The heavens declare your glory and proclaim the work of your hands. Day after day they pour out speech; night after night they communicate knowledge. No words are needed. Their message goes out to the whole earth, and their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens, You pitch a tent for the sun. It rises from one end of the heavens and circles to their other end; Nothing is hidden from its heat. Your instructions are perfect, renewing our life. Your testimony is...
