Have Courage!

COURAGE
A Cookie Takes The Bite Out of Fear!

What is it that brings fear to your life? Is it declining health, a broken relationship you need to mend? Is it an emotional need that you can’t even explain? Is it a mental battle that continues to put you in bondage?

Those in Christ are given everything we need for a Christ-glorifying life. So that we might have a life full of purpose, hope, and yes…
IMG_4951COURAGE!

Today, ask God to strengthen you and fill you with courage. Let’s reach out to those in our path and share God’s Word of courage, and of faith in Christ alone.

“Share each others burdens,
and in this way obey the law of Christ.”

Galatians 6:2 NLT

So many 'Sweet Life' Blessings!
So many ‘Sweet Life’ Blessings!

Debra and I were so blessed to have the privilege of sharing the ‘Sweet Life’ with the precious ladies at the Southern Baptist Convention Women’s Expo!

 

 

What a wonderful experience as we listened, loved on, and encouraged one another to keep on serving as God leads. Debra and I encouraged the ladies to rekindle  the ‘JOY’ of sharing Jesus Christ with others in their church and in the community.

Debra and I ask that you pray the contacts made will be a reminder that God sees and knows  all we walk thru and He is right there walking with us, leading us and guiding us as we follow Him. What a joy and privilege to serve.

Where’s The HOPE?

Hope Is Like A Cookie..
Sweet To The Last Bite

Hope in Jesus Christ lets us live faithfully in the future tense,
confident the past is forgiven, and our present is providential…
the best is yet to come!

Learning lessons of HOPE by making cookies is a fun and exciting way to trust God’s promise of eternal life to believers.  The peace He gives overrides the bitter… even to the last bite of life.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy spirit.”
Romans 15:13

Special thanks to my two granddaughters and their friends for helping with this FUN video!

I LOVE DOORS!

DP front doorDo you love doors?
I do!

I love driving around the neighborhood… just to see different doors! When the seasons come and go, sometimes the doors change… they give a little lift! The doors seem to express a little glimpse into the gal that lives there!

Today, I’m not thinking about the doors that let you into someones home.  The doors that God, himself opens and closes are the doors I’m thinking of today. JB Front Fall doorOur heart is the first door that opens so we can receive Him as our personal Savior.  But, all along this wonderful journey,  we grow and need His direction.  We seek the doors to open … and close … as He chooses.

Today, Debra and I are asking God to continue to open the doors He has for us to minister.  Our desire is to be used by Him where He leads.JB & DP Car full

Please pray with us as we seek His will.

My devotional has a great verse for these thoughts.


A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.

Proverbs 16:9 NKJV

Can I get a “AMEN”!
