  2. It is the book of practical Christian living. I read it, I understand it, but I am having a hard time trying to do it. It is like a block when it comes to doing it. I can do the simple stuff. God says in his word be a doer of the word. I am trying very hard to move forward with the reading and studying, understanding and doing what God has given through The Book of James. I'm still working on doing the word of God and not just hearing. With God all things are possible. Start at the top. http://www.christianmom.com/forums/s...-Book-of-James The Book of James has changed my life and it will change your life, as well.
  3. Father you have brought us to a calm to spend quality time with you. 🙏 Father we lift up the name of Jesus, the name above all names. Father we give you praise, honor, and glory. Father we thank you for the big things you do, and we thank you for the smallest things as well. Father, You have our attention, forgive us for the times that we were so busy going about our day. You have brought us to a calm for time with you, quality time to spend with us individually in our own way. Father thank you for opening eyes, to see spiritually, and not just in the naturally. Father thank you for opening ears to hear you spiritually, and not just in the naturally. Father you have the attention of the world. Thank you God that you are a living God that we can call on, in this time of physical, and health needs. Father we are willing, and open to hear the Holy Spirit, communicating with us to do your will. Father this is our time this night, and weeks or month, to be open to hear and see your will. Thank you for drawing the lost in a dark world. Thank you for renewing ones who has strayed from your will and purpose. We pray this prayer in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen

  6. Hello Lillie, Wonderful news, and to God be the glory. I went through a natural childbirth. It just so it happened to be before the pregnancy, that I would ride my bike to work (7 miles), and along the beach 25 miles one way, so about 50 miles. When I found out that I was pregnant, I stopped riding. So, I started going to aqua aerobics. But let me tell you I didn’t plan on a natural childbirth. Now this was my first, and only child. I was in labor for a few days and the last day, my daughter was coming so fast, that when my doctor arrived, he couldn’t get his suit off fast enough. So, he told me not to push, until he changes. When he returned. He could see her head. I pushed the first time to learn what to do, and the second time she was out. It was too late for an epidural. I am so grateful; it happened that way. This was my first and only child. I knew that I might not have another child, because of my age. You know everyone’s experiences are different. But, I didn’t find it much painful. It was painful but not as some drums it up to be. My daughter was born on August 13. I also breast-feed her, and I bought a pump. I tried to make the best experience of having one child. She is now 22 years old and attending college. She is an artist. God has blessed me, and her with His perfect situation for our lives. So not planned, and not prepared, I look back, at riding my bike, and aqua aerobics, and have drawn a conclusion that, God, knew His plan for the birth for myself, and my daughter. He planned it all. Caution: It is good to hear the stories of others, but you have to adhere to the consultation of your doctor. Always stay in prayer with God, as you carry the greatest gift and miracle of giving birth and being bless with a child. Second to the gift and miracle of God’s son Jesus to the world, that we have life and the forgiveness of sin. Father God, I pray for Lillie, the father, and their soon to be child that she takes this time to seek You in her life for the plan that You have for this birth. Father bless her with the happiness that she has not felt before, because she lives for You. Give her wisdom, and knowledge to do your will as being a Christian mom, and a loving mother to her child. As these days pass allow her to read your word, and impart your Spirit into the life of the child that she holds inside. We pray this prayer in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. abc
  7. Hello, I'm currently 21 weeks pregnant and I'm looking for advice on childbirth. My due date is August 4, so I still have quite a bit of time to prepare but I really want to take the time to do it right and be fully ready for the big day. It's my first pregnancy. I really want a natural birth, no epidural would be ideal and (like a lot of women I'm sure) I'm worried about the pain, but more specifically no being able to bear the pain for long hours if my labor isn't quick. I know I will need more strength than I naturally have and I hope God will provide me with it. I was wondering if any Christian mom here had any advice on how to prepare for the birth, how to pray about it, how to build strength with the help of the Lord and so on. I was thinking maybe making a playlist of worship songs that I could listen to while in labor, or pick out specific verses that me and my husband could pray about beforehand and during labor too. Thank you for your answers, I pray that all of you are safe during those difficult times. God bless you!

    Welcome back...

    I was glad to find this site when I really needed it. God places me in the right place to develop me for the purposes of His will for the site, and for my life. abc
  9. Are we completely surrendered to God? My thoughts 03 31 2020 Chapter 6 Are we completely surrendered to God? If God would ask us, or our group to do anything what would it be? Are you open to the Spirit? Or Are you just comfortable? Be open to the Spirit. How do the Holy Spirit lead people? Just ask Him, Holy Spirit, what do you want me to do right now? What do we do? what do we say? who do we talk to... ? You see to really experience Him, we must seek Him, diligently, conscientiously, thoroughly or meticulously. God will send you to where He needs you, to a place, to a need, to a desire, somewhere He needs us... When you get there, it could be a word of encouragement, to someone hurting, to someone sick, someone dying, or even to someone, who can hold us up. You just never know; it can be just to tell someone that God love them. I want to tell you, God loves you, no matter what you are going through, or what you have been through. I am here for you in the natural, and God is always with you, and He is very near, through the Holy Spirit.
  10. Help from the Heart and at Home Whether you are on your own staying at home, or with your spouse or family, let’s share some ways you are coping and helping during this unprecedented time! I’ve been inspired by seeing our local students individually sewing masks at home, volunteering to get groceries for senior citizens or walk them through online ordering grocery deliveries, helping with yard work, etc. I’ve seen many churches holding prayer vigils either hourly for a certain period of time or praying for specific people, situations or places. I’ve seen a trend of hanging homemade hearts outside your door and teddy bears for children to search for when out for exercise with their families. Musicians are making music from home and sharing online either individually or virtually with other individuals to make an online group! The videos online of people are singing, clapping, cheering from their balconies to support each other and hospitals during their shift changes! I saw a story of a group of doctors and nurses from my area flying to NYC to assist in the crisis. The stories go on and on. I know there are stories of pain, suffering and sacrifice, and stories of hope. Please, if you feel comfortable, share your ideas and ways of coping for you individually or as a family and ways you or those around you who are able are helping!
  11. We just watched this movie again last evening. What a great movie and story. Worth watching again, if you’ve seen before.
  12. 🙏 Father we sing praises to your name, oh Lord. For Your name is Great and Greatly to be praise. Father we pray this night for the USA, as well as other nations. We lift up our leaders. Father we pray for the sick, the hurting, and for all in the states and out of the states who don't understand. Father we pray for Your people, and those who are lost, that they would come to You. Father we are asking that you give us peace in this situation. Father help us to find the good in this situation, and fill our days with prayer and praise to You. Your word says when praises go up, blessings comes down. Father right now we are asking for meds, for recovery, for vaccines, ventilators, PPE's for the front line. For strength to do Your will. That all bring glory to you, that they are raised up as solder in Your army to show Your love that You have given to us, the free gift of life and not death. We pray for the blessing of healing, and complete restoration to life, and living. We pray this prayer in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen

  14. It the last day but just know this, and it is written in the word of God, and we are heirs to His thrown (Romans 8:17 [NIV]). Read this Psalm and you will find comfort and encouragement. Psalm 91 NIV 1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. a 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. 9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, 10 no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; 12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. 13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. 14 "Because he b loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. 15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” During this time I have to continue to remind myself of the truth in God's word. For it will bring you peace.
  15. How excellent is the name of Jesus? Father God in the name of Jesus, we pray for, and we claim the healing, that Jesus died for the people on this earth at Calvary over 2000 years ago. We put our trust in the power of your Word, that says, “By Jesus’s stripes we are healed” We ask for the wisdom of Solomon to be imparted in the leaders of the earth. We pray for wisdom, that the church will take godly actions in this situation. We give You praise, that your will be done in all people. We pray for blessings, and to open minds, and hearts of the people on the earth to turn to You. From whence cometh our help. For we know that our help comes from the Lord. Who has made heaven and earth. We give you all admiration, and awe, for the victory that is already won. May our faith, and agreement be in unity with the power of the Holy Spirit. We give God all the glory, honor, and adoration for what He is doing now, and in the future. We pray this prayer in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen

  22. After we’ve come to faith in Christ, God leaves us in this world for a very clear purpose: his own glory. But how are we to glorify God for the rest of our lives? The Bible reveals that God has laid before every Christian two infinite journeys which we are to travel every day: the internal journey of growth into Christlike maturity, and the external journey of worldwide evangelism and missions. This book is a road map for the internal journey, laying out how we are to grow in four major areas: knowledge, faith, character, and action. In this book, we’ll learn how God grows us in knowledge, faith, character, and action. We’ll also discover that spiritual knowledge constantly feeds our growing faith, faith will transform our character, our transformed character will result in an array of actions more and more glorifying to God, and our actions will feed our spiritual knowledge. This upward spiral will lead us to become more and more like Jesus Christ in holiness. And not only will this book help us understand Christian growth in detail, it will also give us a passion to grow every day for his glory.
  23. “How do you do it all?” That’s the question that wife, mom, actress, and best-selling author Candace Cameron Bure is often asked. And it’s a question that women everywhere are asking themselves as we seek to balance all of our roles, responsibilities, and opportunities. So, how do we do it? Working since the age of 5, Candace has been in a balancing act for nearly her entire life. She is the first to tell you that there is no miracle formula for perfect execution in every area of your life, but there definitely are some lessons to be learned, lessons that come to life in Candace's story. Come along and dig into Candace’s story from her start in commercials, the balance-necessitating years on Full House, to adding on the roles of wife and mom while also returning to Hollywood. Insightful, funny, and poignant, Candace’s story will help you balance it all.
  24. Do You Feel Like You're Missing Something? What if this feeling wasn’t a bad thing? It could be a longing for more of God and a catalyst to living the life that was designed before the foundations of the earth were laid. A lot of us, if we’re honest, are afraid. We hold our dreams close to our chest. But our passions have a purpose—they were engineered for God’s greater plan and he intends for us to use them for his glory and purposes. In Restless, Bible teacher and fellow struggler Jennie Allen explores practical ways to identify the threads of your life and how to intentionally weave them together. She explains how your gifts, passions, places, and relationships aren’t random; they’re deliberate and meaningful. And your suffering—it’s possible it has produced the very thing you want to give back to the world. Using the story of Joseph, the dreamer, Jennie explains how his suffering, gifts, relationships—all of the threads of his life—fit into the greater story of God and how our stories can do the same. What would happen if God got bigger than your fear and insecurity, and you spent the rest of your life running without reservation after his purposes for you? You were created for more.
  25. Revolutionize Your Health ... Once and for All During an afternoon of baptizing over 800 people, Pastor Rick Warren realized it was time for change. He told his congregation he needed to lose weight and asked if anyone wanted to join him. He thought maybe 200 people would sign up, instead he witnessed a movement unfold as 15,000 people lost over 260,000 pounds in the first year. With assistance from medical and fitness experts, Pastor Rick and thousands of people began a journey to transform their lives. Welcome to The Daniel Plan. Here's the secret sauce: The Daniel Plan is designed to be done in a supportive community relying on God's instruction for living. When it comes to getting healthy, two are always better than one. Our research has revealed that people getting healthy together lose twice as much weight as those who do it alone. God never meant for you to go through life alone and that includes the journey to health. Unlike the thousands of other books on the market, this book is not about a new diet, guilt-driven gym sessions, or shame-driven fasts. The Daniel Plan shows you how the powerful combination of faith, fitness, food, focus, and friends will change your health forever, transforming you in the most head-turning way imaginably---from the inside out.
  26. A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven. Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear. Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us. Told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.
