Isaiah 43:19, “So I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” The best way I can make myself actually rest is by watching movies.

Ephesians 5:33 NAS, “Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband.” Yes, I realize this Scripture is a marriage reference. No, I’m not married anymore. I’m so far away from marriage it’s not even funny. LOL However, during my Scripture reading …

Galatians 6:10, “Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” Have you seen this picture floating around the internet? I know I have on Facebook for sure. I do think is a good representation of how God tries to bless us. He wants us to trust …

“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” ~ Proverbs 29:1 KJV I first learned about a word for the year in my Facebook groups. Last year, my word was “Thankful”. It fit so perfectly. Last year was a great year. There were some ups and downs, but my relationship with God grew. My prayer life changed. God provided in …

Psalm 37:4, “Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” A few days ago, I wrote about the desires of our hearts, and how God feels about that.
