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.

Let It Out

I was greatly moved by this passage: Then David and the people who were with him raised their voices and wept until they had no more strength to weep…. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God… And David inquired of the Lord…1 Samuel 30:4 & 6b & 8a This is how we should

House of Mourning

We’re reading this book Holiness by J.C. Ryle in a life group that I’m in and last night I came across this passage: “Some of us know by bitter experience what a long and weary time it is between the death of those we love and the hour when we bury them out of our

Take Time to Mourn

I had a surprising number of conversations yesterday about death, grieving, and mourning. Maybe it isn’t really surprising considering how many of our loved ones have passed away since the pandemic began. We try to make sense of it, but it’s just so overwhelming. As Christians, we’re aware of 1 Thessalonians 4:13 (ESV): But we

How’s It Going?

If you’ve done the tasks this week, how’s that going? Have you gotten any reactions/feedback? I’m sure the lives you touched were made better by your outpouring of love and that you’ve planted seeds this week. Pray that those seeds will be watered. I prayed throughout the day yesterday about the texts I sent out

Text the World

We don’t have to travel the world on foot in order to spread the gospel like Paul and the apostles did. We can transverse great distances online. We can see each other online or on our phones no matter how far away we are and in a lot of instances, no matter the location. Additionally,

Random Act of Kindness

Today let’s all commit to doing a random act of kindness. It can be as simple as a text or phone call or as difficult as doing something outside our comfort zone. Whatever God calls you to do today, be a doer, not a hearer only (James 1:22). “For a good tree does not bear

What do you do?

What do you do with God’s word? Do you hear it on Sundays (or on Christmas Sunday and Easter Sunday only) and then spend the rest of your week living as if you have no idea what the Bible says?ORDo you take what you’ve learned and try to apply it to your daily life? This
