Please pray for my son who continues to fail in trusting and seeking
Jesus. II pray that he will be strengthened in faith, mind, and body.
Pray for all mothers and their prodigal sons and daughters that we, too,
will trust in God's mercy and goodness. Lord, we offer up our trials to
Yesterday I heard a story about a young couple who had to search
through 8 tons of garbage to find two weddings rings worth over 0,000
that they accidently threw into the garbage. They, through prayer and
determination found their treasure. But I realize my true treasure is my
relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And I am willing to go
through everything and anything , even garbage, that I might know, love,
and serve my Lord now and always.
The rings were worth 0,000
Celia, Thinking and praying for you!

Thank you Salina. Your prayers for me mean so much. I hope you are
I have found that I am not successful when I try to up "things" for
Lent--like sugar or frozen yogurt or Starbucks. Rather, this Lent I have
given up my stubbornness in a particular relationship. I am amazed with
my change in attitude. I pray for continued mending of relationships,
peace and harmony in our family. We need each other, particularly as we
SE - thank you for sharing your beautiful spiritual awakening.
Thank you for such a thought-provoking devotion, Amy. :)
The image of Federal Reserve and the question, "Can I discover the
true, eternal value of my real rock, my faithful deliverer, Jesus
Christ?" prompted me to think: Will I be able to recognize Jesus when He
comes back again? Or will I be like the Jews who tried to stone Jesus
when He claimed to be God?
I have been told in Scriptures that Jesus is coming back again just like
the Jews were told the Messiah was coming. How do I know I won't miss Him
just as the Jews did?
Then I remember how the FBI agents are trained to spot the counterfeits.
They don't learn about the counterfeits, they study and study the genuine
things until they master the look of the real thing!
Do you ever wonder if Jesus is speaking on TV so the world can hear Him,
will you say He is blaspheming just as the Jews did when He came the
first time? Remember we don't know what Jesus looks like and He doesn't
wear a halo. And if He is anything like He was the first time, He was an
ordinary Joe according to Scripture.
I would study and study the genuine One, Jesus Christ until I master the
real One! That will be until the day I see Him face to face in life or in
1 John 4:2-3, "This is how we know if they have the Spirit of God: If a
person claiming to be a prophet acknowledges that Jesus Christ came in a
real body, that person has the Spirit of God. But if someone claims to be
a prophet and does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus, that person is
not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist, which you
heard is coming into the world and indeed is already here."
2 Peter 1:2-3a, 4b, 8, "May God give you more and more grace and peace as
you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. By His divine
power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We
have received all of this by coming to know Him........ He has given us
great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to
share His divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human
desires......The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful
you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." Amen!
To me, the Bible is the biography of our God. It tells me Who He is, what
He did, what He is doing and what He will do.
Hebrews 4:12, "For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any
two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of
joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the
I heard a saying from my Bible Study Fellowship teaching leader long ago
that I made it into bookmarks for all my Bibles: On one side it says,
"What does this passage of Scripture reveal about God - His Person, His
Purposes, and/or His Work?" On the other side it says, "What I believe
about God determines what I believe about myself, my world, my purposes,
my life and how I behave!"
Thank you Lord Jesus, you are my true Lord and Savior. Thank you
For my faith, my life and my family. Please Lord have mercy on me
Forgive me. Amen
