Morning Hello

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Hi All,

Looking forward to this morning, I will be leading my Ladies Bible Study, we are studying the Book of Hebrews, it is an in-depth study. The gals are enjoying it and bring a lot of their thoughts and questions to the study, I can see that they are really doing their homework with reading the chapter and digging in to the Word to see what God is speaking to them individually. Indeed there is a lot of sharing and personal testimonies.

Today we are in Chapter 3...We are taking a few verses at a time and using a great study Bible that takes us into some background history and also using Bible Commentaries, Dictionaries, Maps and we also do a Word study...

For today's snack I have a special treat for them, a blueberry-peach-raspberry pie and I also have some peanut brittle to munch on and of course coffee, tea and hot chocolate...

Hope you all have a great day...You are doing a great job, keep up the great work!

    What study Bible are you using for your class? It sounds like a fun group. Enjoy your ladies, and the snacks (in moderation-the snacks, not the ladies). May the Holy Spirit bless your gathering!

Daily Devotions with Heartlight

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

March 20

1 Peter 2:2-3

Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

Thoughts on today's verse

Salvation is such a precious thing! But like a newborn baby, we become obnoxious or sick if we stay in the same place we were spiritually when we were saved! Read Hebrews 6 and see what God has to say about remaining immature! We must really want to grow. We must crave what is good and what builds us up. What are you going to do today to satisfy your spiritual appetite?

Prayer:

Mighty God, thank you for loving me and saving me. I really want to mature in your grace. Bless me today as I seek to pattern holy habits and fill myself spiritually with the things that will help me grow. But Holy God, I know that true growth comes only from you, so I ask you to strengthen me by your Spirit as I pursue your character. Through Jesus' mighty name I pray. Amen.

Daily Devotions with Heartlight..

Monday, March 19, 2012

March 19

Galatians 5:22-23
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Thoughts on today's verse

A lot of different religious groups will give you all sorts of ways to know whether or not you have the Holy Spirit. Jesus has one simple answer: "by their fruit you will know them." Paul gives us the definition of holy fruit. Say them out loud and ask the Lord to make it true in you: LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, SELF-CONTROL.

Prayer:

Abba Father, through the Spirit I call upon you. Please fulfill in me the character you possess. I want to exhibit the qualities of your child, Jesus, through whom I pray. Amen.

Setting the Tone for Your Day!

Sunday, March 18, 2012

Believe it or not, we have the power to set the tone of our day:

If you want your day to be filled with positive thoughts you need to focus on the good and wholesome things that uplift your emotions, when you chose to fill yourself with things that edify & build up you set the tone for a day of blessing and not defeat!

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

    I love that verse, Judith. I just read the front of your Spark Page and your story is so inspiring! I, too, believe in the power of prayer to heal, and you are a living example of it. May He hold you gently in His hand and bring you strength in your incredible journey!

And thank you so much for the prayers for my son! emoticon

    Thank you Judith for the perfect way to begin the Lord's day! There are so many negative things that we hear on the news today. But instead of feeling depressed, we need to keep our focus on the wonderful and magnificent God whom we serve.
I will strive to meditate on those positive things today!
