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.

Back to school

When I sat down this morning, I had no idea what I would write about, but God came through. I opened a document that I began writing the other day and at the top was my life verse. It fits perfectly with my upcoming week, and surely there are many people out there who are …

Starting over

I’m not big on change. The familiar, tried-and-true is much more comfortable. So these past few days on WordPress have been a little unsettling. It doesn’t “feel” cozy like it did on Blogspot. The posts seem like they’re shouting because the photos and words are so large. I don’t like shouting, especially at six a.m. …

Commandments

John 14:15 ESV“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. It should be that simple. There are just two commandments:…“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’…‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37b, 39b ESV)The first one, I feel pretty good about. The …

Be obedient

Every time I read the Old Testament, I get so frustrated at the Israelites. They traveled with the physical being of God–as a pillar of cloud by day, and as a pillar of fire by night (Exodus 13:21-22) yet they had the audacity to disobey Him, to complain, even to rebel. I don’t know how …
