God's Armour!

Posted by vking on January 30, 2014 at 9:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Ephesians 5: 11-12

Happy T G I F!!

We made it to the weekend.  That's fabulous..even if it's not a 'three-day weekend'!  My mind needs a break.  This first month of 2014 w...

Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man; thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.  Psalm 31:20

Happy Thursday!

Some days I find it incredibly difficult to stay focused on the job at hand, because of all the voices and other distractions clamouring for my attention.  Maybe they all aren't trying to get my attention, but they do tend to be distracting.  And if we are not careful, we will ...

And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God; many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.  Psalm 40:3

Happy Tuesday! 

OK...so I totally flew by Monday and now am into Tuesday.  I slept through my alarm and didn't wake up until after my normal workout time.  I believe that affected my entire day. And it didn't help that the snow was piled up so high in my driveway that moving vehicles around took...

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart.  Lean not on thine own understanding; in all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths.  Proverbs 3:5-6

Happy T G I F!

I don't know about you, but I am extremely thankful another weekend is upon us!  It's been somewhat of a busy week.  And I have a sneaky feeling, this is just a foretelling of things to come.

I love the verses from Proverbs.  I feel as though they can be my battlec...

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended; but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.  I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 3:13-14

Welcome to Thursday!

Sometimes it seems as though we are always anxiously awaiting the arrival of...something.  You fill in the blanks.  It could be the arrival of som...

Death and Life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.  Proverbs 18:21

Happy Thursday!

So...we are already inching towards the third weekend in January.  My how time flies when you are having fun!  And I don't know about you, but this year is starting off how last year ended...with me being involved in a number of extracurricular activities.  I am happy to say that many of them involve using the writing...

Happy Wednesday!

I'm starting out with the idea this will be a short AIM blog because I am feeling the beginning of a cold in my throat.  So, thank goodness I am not having to speak this!

How is your soul?  How do you feel deep down?  How often do you just listen to...nothing, but the sound of your thoughts?  Are they restful thoughts?  Are they peaceful thoughts?  O...

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.  Hebrews 13:8

Happy Tuesday!

I missed my Monday entry due to an isolated power outage for some houses on my street...mine being in the middle of them.  I had several ideas floating around in my head as I was driving to a church meeting Monday evening that I decided to put in a note on my cute little tablet so as not to forget them.

I mused back many years today as I was stopp...

Happy TGIF!

It's Friday...wow!  This has truly been awesome, God-inspired week! Another accomplishment that could not have been done without the Lord at my side.  I was on a fast from Tuesday through to Thursda...

There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee; I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.  Joshua 1:5

Welcome Thursday...day 3 of our Spiritual Prosperity Fast!

We did it!  (The Lord and I)  He knew we could...I just didn't!  The Lord can do anything but fail!  Although I can say that Wednesday evening was a bit of a trial.  All sorts of food smells were assault...

And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us:  we perish.  And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?  Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.  But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?  Matthew 8:25-27

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.  Philippians 4:13

Welcome Tuesday!  Today is the first day of our church's corporate fast and will go through to Thursday, January 9th.  I suppose you could say I have gone back and forth about how I was going to participate.  Well...more honestly, I've gone from not participating to fully participating.  I started out with what I felt I was going to do or not do during the Fasting time....

Happy Monday!  Welcome back to the work week!  (This is probably more for me, because some of you may have gone back to work last week.)

From what some of you expressed to me last year, 2013 was a year of relying heavily on the Lord.  The plans you painstakenly made did not happ...

Happy Friday!

Alright...this is the first Friday of the New Year, and the last day of my long Christmas holiday vacation!  I'm happy, but I'm also sad.  I've gotten caught up on some things, I've learned some things and I've started doing some new things. 

I've gotten caught up on some paper work w...
