Christian Living

Beeda Speis’ daily devotional-type posts which often include her thoughts and feelings on a certain subject. Each post features a Bible verse of the day and suggestions for prayer.

Each week, beginning on Monday, she chooses the main theme and finds related Bible verses which she shares in her FaceBook prayer group, Pray In The Stillness (formerly 7th Hour Prayer Power). Come along beside her to pray together on a specific topic, need, or group of people.

She asks everyone to set aside time to be still and focus all of their attention on their conversation with God, talking to Him but also listening.

I believe that through the power of prayer, we can draw closer to our Father, glorify Him, and make a difference in the lives of others.

I would qualify for government assistance programs now if I weren’t still working. (Most of these programs are based on income.) …

When I had breast cancer, I endured periods of grieving for a life I might not have lived. I had an aggressive cancer that was caught super early and so my prognosis was really very good, but I still had numerous periods of grief. It’s difficult not to think the worst when your body is …

Things of the Flesh

When I think of putting God first, my initial thought is how I greet Him each morning. How I begin my day seems to have an impact on the entire day. I’ve been working on my waking attitude for over a year now because I realized it had gotten quite bad. Now with this illness, …

The Truth Shall Make You Free

The past few weeks have been especially difficult. Maybe I’ve written those same words several times since January, but this set of symptoms that I have make me long for “normal” days instead of varying degrees of my “new normal.” It gets hard to distinguish between bad days and not-so-bad days. I don’t say this …
