My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26
“For a brief moment I abandoned you,
but with deep compassion I will bring you back.
In a surge of anger
I hid my face from you for a moment,
but with everlasting kindness
I will have compassion on you,”
says the Lord your Redeemer. Isaiah 54:7-8
At the beginning and end of the day, we are only human. Broken, sinful, faulty humans and God loves us anyway. Read more
Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.
But who can discern their own errors?
Forgive my hidden faults.
Keep your servant also from willful sins;
may they not rule over me.
Then I will be blameless,
innocent of great transgression.
May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

The man who finds a wife finds a treasure,
and he receives favor from the Lord.
A quarrelsome wife is like the dripping
of a leaky roof in a rainstorm;
restraining her is like restraining the wind
or grasping oil with the hand.
She [A wife of noble character] speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
[Husbands] Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
God intended marriage to be a partnership that brings value to each other. Read more
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:28-31
Today I think about those marriages that are separated not by choice. Read more
Dear Heavenly Father,
You are so awesome in power and love. There is no God like you in heaven and earth. You love us so much you keep your promises, especially the gift of forgiveness and grace through your Son, Jesus. Jesus who came through King David’s lineage, just as you promised through prophesy.
Dear Lord please continue to dwell on earth and in our hearts. Please continue to fill us with your Spirit and guide us with Jesus’s teachings. Anywhere that your people gather to worship and praise you, I pray that you hear those prayers. Bless the people who cry out to you!
Dear Lord, you are just. Please be with the innocent who are hurt by their fellow man, their neighbor. I also pray for people who have turn their back on you; that they will come back with a humble heart so they can experience the enormous amount of love in your forgiveness. Teach us the right way we should live to honor you and love each other.
In Jesus’s name, Amen.
Dear Heavenly Father,
I praise and thank you for all you have done from the small miracles of breath you give me each morning I awake to the amazing mountain moving miracles of healing broken hearts, sick bodies, and giving us your Son Jesus, our Savior. I sing out praises to you and all the wonderful and mysterious ways you create. My heart rejoices and overflows with all the ways you love me, each day and in each moment, directly and through other people who you have filled with your joy and love. I will continue to look to you for strength and perseverance and I will continue to look for you in all of your creation.
