Joseph from Nazareth, a descendent of David pledged to marry the virgin, Mary, received a personal message of hope from God. Delivered by an angel, Joseph understood God’s direction to fulfill his part in God’s divine plan.
The message to this local carpenter was the answer to a unique personal dilemma Joseph was struggling with at the time of the angel’s encounter.
And Joseph’s obedience would forever change the direction of our world!
October 4 is Bring Your Bible To School Day! How fantastic is that?
The event, started byFocus on the Familyin 2014, is growing in popularity. With every state in the nation involved, 8,000 students participated in 2014, 155,000 in 2015, and 356,000 in 2016, and the number for 2017 almost reached 500,000!
Bring Your Bible To School Day started as a response to America’s schools continuing to forbid religious groups, Bibles, prayer, kneeling for God at football games, or even acknowledging Jesus in the classroom.
This much needed event is something Christian students may partake in openly.Continue reading →
Was it last night, after your feet snuggled warmly under the covers? Did you thank Him for giving you another twenty-four hours to share His love?
Or did you thank Him this morning, before those same feet hit the floor? Did you acknowledge allowing your eyes to see the sun rise; enabling you to make right any wrongs you committed yesterday? (FYI, as I’m writing, I thanked Jesus for my MS.)
Jesus, who was crucified at age thirty-three, spent the last three years of His life on earth traveling the areas of Galilee, Samaria and Judea. His purpose was to share His identity asthe way, the truth and the lightof God.
Even while Jesus was a youngchild of twelve, everyone who heard Him was amazed at His understanding and His answers while discussing scripture.
Jesus, who has the power of heaven within Him, could have saved Himself from the agony of the cross but He chose to suffer. Why, people want to know, did this “man” do this?Continue reading →
God desires you to come to Him during any situation, especially before you make life changing decisions. King David of Israel loved and trusted God, yet he still forgot the need to continually seek Him.Continue reading →
Christians know the book of Revelation in the New Testament. John the apostle, wrote it when he was about 90 years old as a prisoner of Rome on the island of Patmos in the Aegean Sea. Like his first book, John, Revelation reveals the full identity of Christ, plus (in short), Revelation proclaims how final judgement occurs for believers and unbelievers when Christ returns.
However, an important book of the Old Testament too often overlooked on the topic of eternal destiny is Deuteronomy. Written by Moses, he encouraged the Israelites to follow God’s law – and if they ignored God, God states exactly what will happen.
There are many courageous and faithful men and women in the Bible. Their stories show dedication and love for God. While some rose from commonness to power, most remained as everyday people choosing to follow the One true God, one day at a time.
There is one man, in his last hours on earth, who became a follower of Jesus. Blessings!
These are just a sampling of people who simply believed in all of God’s goodness and faithfulness, then in their own way shared His truth with others. Their personal stories are an inspiration to us all.
Absolute biblical recordings reveal witnesses to this extreme historic event. Jesus did arise from the dead! There are so many witnesses to His resurrection, it becomes unfathomable how doubters make claims against documented facts.
Thankfully, though the physical body of Jesus is gone His spiritual presence lives forever! The miracle of Jesus raised to life from death is central in Christianity. There is no one else who walked this earth that man slaughtered, then came back to life!Continue reading →
Praise God! For the past six weeks we’ve sought His perfect plan.

Thank you, LORD, for Calling me, for the Plan you prepared for me, for the Promises you made me which never change. Thank you, LORD, that I Believe those promises and so receive your Blessing on my plan. Amen.Continue reading →
Thank you for praying and worshiping with me these past fiveweeks! Only two more weeks to go in this series. I pray Holy Spirit has worked in your heart and helped you along your path, just as He helps me.
By now, you should have a clearer understanding of God’s plan for you. Something must be touching your heart that you should or should not do in you plan. This seven week series started as a way to share with you how I commune with God, walking in faith to get my Christian screenplay, THE PLAN, read and eventually produced.
I hope my journey trusting God inspires you to start/continue trusting God, as we both seek our plan.
I prayed on THE PLAN before I wrote it, asking for discernment. I prayed for ten months while writing THE PLAN for God’s complete direction. Now, I continue to pray as I stand on His word sharing with you specific scriptures I read daily. I believe in His blessing; expecting more that I can ask or image for THE PLAN.Continue reading →
