Oh Lord, thank You for my beautiful mothers and wife of our two daughters. I am so blessed to have these women in my life. I cherish every moment I have to be with them and to be in their presence as it is awesome to be in Yours. As I honor You Lord, I also honor my parents and this day give the respect that my mothers and my wife deserves. Because it is Mother's Day, I give my attention to everything they have done and continue to do for me now. There is so much love and compassion in their hearts and I know that this can only come from You, God. It is so amazing to have knowledge of You and Your sacrifice for mankind on the cross, since I was a child. Those days I had with my parents, while reading the Bible, I will never forget. It was not their faith that was instilled in me but Your Words did the convicting that I needed to follow You, Lord. My wife is also a great example of being selfless and loving to me no matter what. She's been through a lot, but has never lost hope in me, like You haven't Lord. I know that You instilled this kind of love in her. And now that my birth mom is in assisted living, I want to be with her more and more. I can't wait till our next visit. It is always a blessing to be with her and my stepmother. Lastly Lord, how blessed I am to have Elizabeth as my wife and mother of my kids. I love our time together and I know You prepared us to meet since the beginning of time. May we both never lose hope in Your promises Lord and to continue to walk in faith together. Amen.
Mothers are a gift from God. They can truly influence us to walk in the ways of the Lord, like has happened in my life.
I give honor and thanks to my mothers and my wife, who is the mother of our two beautiful daughters. I am so grateful to have these women in my life. Continue Reading
Proverbs 23:22-25 (KJV)
22 Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.
23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
24 The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.
25 Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice.
I pray Lord that more people will learn to love You and to follow in Your ways. May the younger generation especially resist temptation and not give into porn, sex, drugs and alcohol. Porn can truly deter a person from a relationship with You and a relationship with their future spouse. Pornography and fornication is an abomination in Your sight and it is sad to see so many people into such filth. Sexual thoughts for another person and having sex before marriage is never right, but certainly wrong and I pray that people will wake up to this before it is too late. This sinful lifestyle, while adding drinking and doing drugs is only following Satan, which leads to death. I know that this type of lifestyle will keep people from either not marrying or marrying for the wrong reasons. So I pray Lord that people will confess their sins and give their whole hearts to You, starting today. This will change everything. Thank You for Lord for leading me to my spouse and for her being a good example to me in the faith. This has truly steered me in the right direction and to look to You in the faith. Now I am forgiven by Your blood and can walk in faith and not by the vile passions of the flesh. I love You and trust in You, God. Amen.
As couples, we are to seek the Lord daily and learn from Him each day of our lives. We do this by reading and studying the Bible together as a couple and praying often Continue Reading
1 Timothy 5:24,25 (KJV)
24 Some men’s sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after.
25 Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid.
1 Timothy 5:17,18 (KJV)
17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18 For the scripture saith, thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
1 Timothy 5:14,15 (KJV)
14 I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
15 For some are already turned aside after Satan.
Sex is between husband and wife and anything else is abominable before God. Therefore, marry and keep your eyes on your spouse and the Lord.
1 Timothy 2:1-3 (KJV)
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
We ought to pray for not only our own needs but for others as well. Show love and consider others that are in need in your prayers.
Many of you know Jesus but have never gone out and witnessed for Him. I invite you to trust in Him and to open your mouths today.
Oh Lord, my God, I am so grateful to know You better each day. It is truly a blessing to have Your words in the Bible for me to abide in. Every one of us are sinners and need Your law, in order to point us back to You. Truly, it is easy to get lost in this world as evil is made to appear as good and what is good is frowned upon by this generation. If we went by what the average person says, we'd be led astray and not even know You or what is right. This is because their hearts are far from You and Your words are not in their hearts. Instead, their opinions trump what You've already taught us in scripture and new doctrines come out that lead people astray. This is so sad to see but also so true. I do not wish people in the faith to be led out and unto false doctrines, but I also cannot convince everyone to search the Bible daily and pray often. This I need the people to do on their own. And I know that the only way that this can happen is if they align themselves with Your Word. Then, will they be led out of darkness and into Your light. And as Your presence comes over them, will they understand the truth and be set free from every false teaching and doctrine of this world. This I pray Lord that people's hearts will open up to You , understand Your laws, repent of their sins, and abide in them. I know that we are safe when we do what You say. This is true love when we keep Your commandments Lord. I know this to be true for it brings me great joy. I love You so much God. Amen.
1 Timothy 1:8-10 (KJV)
8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
1 Timothy 1:3-5 (KJV)
3 As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,
4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
