Praying Continually…

Praying Continually…

Last Sunday morning we missed church because Baby Bro kept on sleeping and I have learned not to interrupt his sleep.  My third child is not one to sleep anywhere and roll with the punches.  Anyway, I took some time to retreat to our room and catch up on my Bible study that I had… Continue Reading

War Room- A Call to Prayer

War Room- A Call to Prayer

Did you get to see the movie War Room when it was in theaters?  I wanted to but didn’t get out to see it, so when my parents said someone gave it to them to watch I jumped at the chance to see it.  Wow, was that inspiring and after watching it I felt a strong… Continue Reading

Welcome, 2016!

Welcome, 2016!

Happy New Year! So how is 2016 treating you? My 2016 started out with adding a full nights sleep to my life.

Some Perspective on Prayer

Some Perspective on Prayer

What do we do after we pray and give God our requests?  We wait.  We wait for a yes, no or a maybe, right?  I don’t know about you, but while I’m waiting I keep petitioning God.  My prayer of request goes on repeat and that usually increases the anxiety and tension because it keeps… Continue Reading

Self Discipline

Did you know that self-discipline is a fruit of the Spirit? It is actually a virtue listed as self-control in Galatians 5:22-23 along with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and gentleness.  Steven Lawson in his article Self-Discipline, published in this month’s Tabletalk magazine, brings to light the fact that self-discipline is something we… Continue Reading
