Live Like Jesus! 

On this 21st day of June, we are spending 21 minutes with God. Ask the hard questions today…How do I live and love like Christ does?  What do I have to give up so I don’t miss the mark? 

I pray that you make time to hear God’s response so that it’s s not just the 1st Day of summer, but the 1st day of your new life. 

Be blessed today!

But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.

1 John 2:5‭-‬6 NLT

He Has the POWER!

for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him.
Colossians 1:16 NLT


Everything is for God. Our lives, this world, all of it was created by God for His glory. No matter what we see or don’t see, God still rules. 
Take 20 minutes today to thank God for His power and ask Him for help trusting Him more.  God has everything in His hands. Stop worrying about what you see, what you read, what you are going through – and trust our God to handle it. 
Love you! 
Colossians 1:16 (KJV)  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:


Happy Father’s Day! 

My payer is that you spent time not only with your earthly father today, but that you took time to say…

Thank YOU Heavenly Father for being the greatest Dad ever! 

After all, He’s created your earthly father, He created you. He will be there when your earthly father isn’t our can’t be there and always will. 

Give God the praise He deserves!


Start Over And Do It God’s Way! 

 Start Over and Do It God’s Way…

It’s a Great Day to spend 12 Minutes Alone with God! Read this scripture and pray a prayer of thanks and praise to God for forgiving us, washing us and being the God of another chance. 

Choose today to begin again. After you’ve asked for forgiveness, let that thing go and get away from it, in your mind and your body. Know that God has forgiven you and start over. Remind yourself that you are forgiven. If the sin pops up in your mind (which it often does), remind yourself that you’re forgiven and that you have started over. Think about God forgiving you, read this scripture, pray and move on. 

Psalms 103:8-12 (KJV)  The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.


Plans, Plans, Plans…

11 Minutes today alone with God!  You can do it! Take a look at what we’re focusing on today…

Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV)  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Have you dealt with a problem or situation for a long time? Or, have you lived with a situation for years? In this scripture, the people of God had been in captivity for 70 years. Jeremiah went to God on their behalf and after 10 days this was God’s reply. 

God has a plan for your life. 2 verses later tells us to seek him. Are you seeking God’s plan for your life? Many times we go with our own plans and we find ourselves living with a situation longer than we should because we refused to seek God. 

Praise God for His plans for you! Thank Him because the plans are good! (Where else can you find that?) Repent for doing things your way. Ask God to lead you and then follow the way that He leads. 

God bless you today! 


He Makes You Look Better! 

Blessed Sabbath! 

For 10 Minutes today, thank and praise God that you don’t look like what you’ve been through!  Thank God that today you are better, stronger, smarter and wiser because of His love for you!   This scripture says He dresses us with His saving power and covers us with His goodness. Do you know anyone else who would do that? 

I was a mess and I can still be a mess, but I’m so thankful that God chose me! I’m thankful and beyond grateful for how He blesses me. I’m not where I should be, but if you know me, I’m definitely not what I used to be. Thank YOU God! 

Isaiah 61:10 (KJV)  I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.


Be Free! 

If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just [true to His own nature and promises], and will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness [our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose].
1 JOHN 1:9 AMP

Are you growing? 

Are you spending more time with God? 

For 9 minutes today, spend your time today with God, meditating on this scripture…

1 John 1:9 (KJV)  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The Amplified Version says it this way…

If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just [true to His own nature and promises], and will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness [our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose].

1 JOHN 1:9 AMP

Be free! Let it go! Tell God about it. Ask for his help to stop and ask him for the desire to be right. It’s between you and God… now work it out! Love ya!

My Letter To God

My Letter…Today Was A Sad Day

Dear God, 

Today was sad for me. I started the day with a headache, my house was not clean, my cat woke me to feed her. I couldn’t get out of bed, but I did. After going to the bathroom for the 2nd time in 2 hours I found some energy to read Your Word. Thank YOU for letting me share with others what I learned and letting me understand what You showed me. 

I made it to work. Thank You for traveling mercies. At work the headache moved into my back, neck and arm. Some things started going wrong. Work problems started and then the dreaded call. Things at home took a very bad turn. I ran to take care of everything that I could take care of as best as I could.  I blocked back tears thinking about how the entire week lead up to this point. God please help us! 

As I realized that I was helpless in a lot of ways I say down and dropped a few tears. I prayed and asked you to help us, cover us and bring us out of all of these troubles.  You have me the strength to go back and finish my work day. I accomplished so much. You helped me to get the impossible done, even with me thinking about home. When I would year up, I remembered that You have my back. 

It’s now evening and as I sit and process ask that has happened I really must say, thank YOU LORD for helping me through this very sad day. I couldn’t have made it without you. 

God, I still need You to Bless and keep my family. Help us quick, save us and deliver id’s that we may honor YOU. Bless my job, everything about it, my position, my boss, my department and co-workers.  Lead me and guide me to be all that You want me to be, in JESUS’ name. Amen. 


So You Think You’re Wise…

Do you think that you’re wise? 

For 8 Minutes today, we will spend time with God focusing on the wisdom that He gives. 

James 3:17 (KJV)  But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

God’s wisdom is not man’s wisdom. God’s wisdom is loving, peaceful, gentle. It can’t be mistaken. They book of Proverbs taught us to ask for it. Pray for God’s wisdom in your decision making. 


7 Minutes to Bless Someone! 

Take 7 Minutes today with this scripture…

Galatians 6:2 (KJV)  Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

Thank God for every time someone came to your rescue. There were times in my life whiten people helped me and I never expressed the need. Thank God for people who listen and obey God when instructed to help others. 

Pray and ask God how you can help someone today. Maybe you can sit with someone who’s older and feels a little lonely.  Maybe you can volunteer and help someone with their children. Volunteer to clean the church. Help at your local pantry. Carry your neighbors groceries. Invite someone to dinner and share how much God loves them. God will lead you to who you can bless if you are sincere.

Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2 NLT
