Keep It Moving!

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.  2nd Timothy 1:7  (KJV)

Happy TGIF!

So what are you holding onto for dear life?  What have you not turned over to the Lord?  Do you really feel equipped to handle the level of turmoil that you're going through?  Is your worrying about it regularly making your burden any lighter?  Have you paralyzed yourself into a corner...not able to move fo...

The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.  Psalm 29:11 (KJV)

Here we are...close to another weekend.  But to top it off, this is (for some of us) a three-day weekend.  WooHoo!  Hopefully, if you don't get to enjoy the three day weekend, you at least get to enjoy an extra day to your weekend (if you have to work on Sunday...)

Sometimes it seems as though we are waiting for someone to give up permissi...

And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord's, and he will give you into our hands.  1 Samuel 17:47 (KJV)

Guess what?  We're at the middle of the week again!  Unbelievable!  I am still reeling about how quickly this year, 2013, seems to be flying by.  If someone had leaked and revealed to me what would transpire...I might have laughed at them.  But, this has been an awesome year...

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.  Jeremiah 30:3 (KJV)

Yea!  You survived Monday!!!  Sometimes Mondays can be the roughest days of the week.  It generally comes right behind having two days off in a row where you tried to accomplish a month full of 'To-Do's' in two days.  Not good, but that is sometimes what happens.  I am still wo...

August wrap-up...

For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.  Psalm 31:3  (KJV)

Welcome back to the last work week of August!  Wow!  It just seemed like yesterday when I turned over the August page of my calendar.  Where did this month fly off to?  This is kind of the last week of summer...as far as I'm concerned.  Labor Day will be here before we know it. My job is doing fine.  My home business is ro...

Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy unto our Lord; neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.  Nehemiah 8:10  (KJV)

Happy TGIF!

This week was an emotional roller coaster for me!  But today is Friday and it's all good. 

I'm not even sure how to begin to tell you all the ways I've been blessed over the past...

And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.   Habakkuk 2:2

Welcome to Wednesday!

We've almost come to the end of the Sanity Hunt.  This is number 7...did you locate the reference for this verse?  Very good!

I like this one because it makes me think about a couple of things.  Setting personal goals, writing them down...maybe even sharing them with a friend to w...

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye search for me with all your heart.  Jeremiah 29:13 (KJV)

Welcome to Wednesday!

In case you've been keeping track, this is the third verse from last Friday's challenge.  Tomorrow, Thursday, we will have the fourth challenge verse as the opening verse and Friday, I will have the fifth one.  And next week, I will use the other five as opening verses for the AIM blog entries.  Hopefully, by the time ...

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.  Philippians 1:6 (KJV)

Happy Monday!  Alright every...welcome back to the new work week!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  Mine was capped with a win by the Tribe...WooHoo!  The first half of the game was questionable...to say the least.  But...the second half!  That's all I'm going to say!

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.  Psalm 28:7 (KJV)

Happy TGIF!  The weekend is upon us!  Thank you Lord for getting us through another hectic work week!  God is indeed our Rock!  No matter how steep or high the waters around us may rise, his presence is even higher.

I have something a little different for today's AIM bl...

The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof; but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.  Matthew 8:8 (KJV)

Good morning and welcome to Thursday!

Before I get into today's blog entry, let me give you a bit of history about how this particular scripture came to be today's verse.  I had the idea to do a 8/8 tribute because of the date (August 8th - 8th month and 8th day)  I shared this wit...

For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guid me.  Psalm 31:3  (KJV)

Happy Wednesday!  We're half-way through the work week.  Of course it did go quickly for me since I only started my week yesterday...but still.  I'm still happy!

One of the things that we tend to wrestle with is whose advice to take.  We sometimes have a number of people (family, friends, co-workers...what have you) all wanting...

Great peace have they which love thy law; and nothing shall offend them.  Lord, I have hoped for thy salvation, and done thy commandments.  My soul hath kept thy testimonies; and I love them exceedingly.  I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies; for all my ways are before thee.  Psalm 119: 165-168  (KJV)

Welcome to Tuesday and the beginning of another work week.  I had a much needed day off on Monday, so today is the first day of the w...

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.  1 Peter 4:10  (NIV)

Happy Monday! 

Whew...what a weekend!  It wasn't really a 'fun' weekend, but a lot was accomplished.  Believe it or not...I weeded this weekend.  That was something I've been thinking about doing for awhile, but didn't tell anyone...just in case it didn't happen.  A lot of the impetus...

Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart; wait, I say, on the Lord.  Psalm 27:14 (KJV)

Happy TGIF!  It is finally Friday!  The Weekend!  Yay!!!

What a hectic pace I've had for the past few weeks...wow!  One big church project is basically complete.  Another project is slowing heading towards another level forward and I'm starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel to start a couple of pers...
