Prayer and the Word

Beeda Speis posts to her blog every day, but some days, due to time constraints or writer’s block, all she can share is a prayer and the word. Somedays, it may just be a Bible verse or passage.

It’s her prayer that the Bible verse will be the exact one that a reader needs to read at the exact time the reader needs to read it. God’s sovereignty is over all things, and all things work to bring Him glory.

It’s through prayer and being in the word that we draw closer to God. Taking that time to be still and focus only on Him allows us to build a more intimate relationship with our Father.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!Serve the Lord with gladness!Come into his presence with singing!Know that the Lord, he is God!It is he who made us, and we are his;we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.Enter his gates with thanksgiving,and his courts with praise!Give thanks to him; bless …

Praise God for His protection

We as Christians seek comfort in God’s protection and praise Him when He sees us through difficult times. Last evening I had a wonderful conversation with a Christian woman, a friend whom I met during a writing course. I love her faith. She told me that she and her mom read Psalm 91 every single …

The Fruit of Our Lips

These words just resonated with me this morning: “…continually offer the sacrifice of praise…the fruit of our lips,…” I never thought of praise as a sacrifice before. Even though I knew the Bible tells us to bear fruit, I never thought of my lips bearing fruit, but now–just imagine if we all bore fruit in …

Begin Your Day With God

Well, for the first time in 3 1/2 years, I missed posting here (yesterday). I have no idea how that happened except that I was rushing yesterday morning. Which, if you think about it, is ironic–or more accurately, a God thing, considering our topic this week. We divide our time among family, friends, work, life-stuff …
