The Baby is due today…Oh no it isn’t…Is…Isn’t (Non-fiction)


Just a funny story that happened to me.

Always A Writer

Fighting Temptations!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 7:24,25

Who will free me from …sin and death? Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ.

Dear Father,

Thank You for cleansing me of sin and giving me victory over temptation through Your word.

Amen

Prepare For Blessing!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 84:11

The Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord gives grace and glory; no good thing does He withhold from those that walk uprightly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As you wait for God to fulfill his promises to you, the thought may enter your mind that you are not good enough for God to give you what you want. He is probably preparing you to be ready for his plan to be carried out.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Thank you for loving me. You are so wise and kind, so I will wait for you.

Amen

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you! I Corinthians 6:23

Trust God’s Plan!

1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT

No mind has imagined what God has prepared for those that love.

You’re Radiant, Reflect His Glory!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 34:5 NLT

Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It has been said many of the loveliest saints do not know their own beauty. So consider: Do you ever receive compliments that take you by surprise?

Ever since I was an infant I was complimented on my smile and I still am. I was a cute baby, but age has changed me, but my smile is still praised. Thank you Lord!

 ~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Thank you for shining through me and making me radiant with Your likeness. I pray others will know You as Savior, and love you more.

Amen

The Power of Prayer!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

James 5:16 NIV

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Your all-powerful God waits to respond to your requests with his unlimited supernatural resources. Do you pray, but don’t feel the sense of power. Do you take him a long list of wants without thoughts to His desires?

 ~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Help me understand the power of prayer.

Amen

My Sweet Lord’s Prayer


The Lord’s Son looks down to see

At what he calls humanity.

Are we following God’s plan to,

Doing what he’s asked us to?

Following his sweet words

and all the lovely birds.

Put your hand in ours

Spending many, loving hours.

Praying for humanity

And all the earthly beauty.
