His Gift to Us!

It’s late in the day. I’ve spent time with God off and on today. I’ve enjoyed a great conversation or 2 about His goodness. It’s been a blessed and busy day. 

It is time to stop everything and spend 23 solid minutes with our Father. An eye-opening scripture about 1 of the greatest gifts that God has given us is what I looked at today. 

Eye-opener: Sin leads to death. There’s no way around it. If we continue in sin, death is the end result. 

How do we stop sinning? Get closer to God. Spend time in His Word. Obey His Word. Pray. Pray. Listen and pray more. Ask God for the strength to not sin. 

The Gift: Eternal Life with Christ. Face to face contact with the ONE who died to save you, Who loves you, supplies your needs and cares for you. 

23 Minutes isn’t enough to thank God for His wonderful gift to us.

Live In Peace! 

Good Morning! 

This is the scripture that God gave me for 2017. I’m so happy to share it with you today. 

For 22 minutes, read this scripture, meditate on it and pray to God about it for your life. While Jesus gave us these instructions, the results of obeying these words is you having peace and pleasing God. We can’t live like Jesus and act like the world.   Its time for us to mature in God!

Love you and I’m praying for you. 

“Love your enemies! Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to be repaid. Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as children of the Most High, for he is kind to those who are unthankful and wicked.  You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate.

Luke 6:35‭-‬36 NLT

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

http://bible.com/116/col.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:

Goodness! 

Rise and grind! 

God is a great God! He keeps us through the hardest of times and blesses us abundantly on time! 

In 19 minutes today read Psalm 31. Can you relate to things going really wrong in life? When everything was said and done do you recall how God still blessed?  This chapter puts God in front of our issues.  God Is our Rock, He keeps us,  He brings us out. The Psalmist praises God with this wonderful scripture…

Psalms 31:19 (KJV)  Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!

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!

Hear His Voice…

May the LORD bless you today. I pray that these 17 minutes will leave a lasting impression in you to want to know God more and more. 

For 17 minutes, spend time with God focusing on having a deeper relationship with Him. It’s s good to know about God, but it’s so much better to know Him. 

Paul’s prayer is for us to have a better understanding of God. As you read, meditate and pray about the scriptures you start recognizing the voice and Will of God. You don’t have to struggle to hear God’s voice or know what it sounds like when you’re spending time with Him daily. Ask for Him to speak and then get your bible, pray and LISTEN. 
Ephesians 1:17-19 (KJV)  That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

Give! 

For 16 minutes today, spend time with God praying about your giving. Thank God for all He gives to you. Ask God to show you who to give to and what you give them and do it. Sometimes we have to give until it hurts, but don’t worry, God promises that He’ll take care of us. 

What can we give to God? Obedience, praise, our surrender. The bible says…

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

Luke 6:38 KJV

Grow A Minute-A-Day With God

Let Me Help You! 

God bless you today as you spend 15 Minutes With God! 

It’s so important to be humble. Don’t get the ‘big head’ because you serve God. Don’t look down on others who don’t. Remember that God is loving. Jesus didn’t and doesn’t look down on others.  He looks at all of us with compassion. Compassion moves you to help someone. If you look at a person and have no desire to help them, you’ve looked wrong. 

This is a lesson for everyone of us. God help our eyes and our hearts. 

This scripture also helps us to realize that we can all be tempted. The greatest preacher to the person who has touched a bible for the first time can be tempted. Jesus was tempted and overcame by the Word of God and so can you today. Speak the Word of God when you’re tempted. Start praising God for the strength to withstand and not succumb.  Thank God for being your help. 

1 Corinthians 10:12-13 (KJV)  Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
