  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. Kaitlin Hoff welcome from me. I'm glad to have you, and I look forward to getting to know you. You will love it here. abc
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 🙏 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

  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Father God, we thank you for your love, goodness, and mercy. Father God, we thank you for what you are doing, and going to do. Father God, we thank you for another day. Father God, we thank you for your healing power. Father God, we are asking for forgiveness of our sins. Father God, we lift up the medical system, doctors, nurses, and all people associated with caring for people. Father God we lift up the or government, and leaders. We pray for other countries who are fighting the same battle. Father God we lift up our seniors, youth, young, children and babies, cover them with the Holy Spirit and keep them from all sickness and disease. Father God heal the one who are sick, stressed, and all that affected in any way by this virus. Father God protect and heal the ones who have underline health conditions, as well Father God comfort those who has loss love ones. Father God we pray this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen
  11. Why do I want the Holy Spirit? My thoughts 03 26 2020 continues Chan’s Chapter 4 My reason for wanting the Holy Spirit was to become closer to God. I have learned now that it was to sustain you, and give you power for the work of the ministry. 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: (Eph 4:10-13[KJV]) I like how Chan has reveals in his book that it is for “the common good to help people.”[1] I liked his concept of praying a prayer before you begin to help others. Ask God to 1. Speak to us in order to help the people 2. Humble me that they will know that He is God and not us. He is working through us and not us doing the work with pride. I have always thought that it is a good idea to have a mentor to be honest with us, to help us received the truth about ourselves. [1] Francis Chan, Forgotten God.

  14. Let us pray, Father God we thank you for the many many blessings that you have given us in our lives. Father God we thank you for protecting us all the days that we have walked, lived and breath to honor you. Father God we give you all the glory honor and praise for giving your son Jesus for the forgiveness of sin and deliverance and healing. For life in mind, body, soul, and spirit. Father God we placed our lives, in your hands, your word says 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. (Pss. 91:3-7[NIV]) Father God we stand by your Word. Father God we lift up the doctors, nurses, and all of those who are fighting to save lives. Father God we lift up the medical system who you have given the knowledge and hands, to save lives. Father God we lift up the people who are on the front lines, and the first responders, fighting for the lives of others. Father God we lift up our seniors who are sick and fighting for their lives. For they are our natural wisdom, and knowledge of each family, we love them. Father God we pray for our government leaders, and other government leaders who need your wisdom and knowledge in this fight. Father God when we stand with you, we are standing on Holy Ground. Father God send forth the Holy Spirit to heal, comfort, guide, and empower to do your will in this battle. We pray this prayer in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen Please feel free to continue in prayer for this situation.
  15. Are you running the plays in your life, and sharing with others after Sunday’s Worship? My thoughts 03 25 2020 continue I had to ask myself this question. Like Chan, I was excited to get out and do the work of God. As a child I thought that the work was church work, such as singing, being an usher, teaching little children or making the announcement, all had to do with the enter working of the church. So, as I continued to attend church on Sundays it became what I was taught to do. It was not until I had my daughter, that I really began to realize that I wanted more of God. I found myself not having a personal relationship with Him. From there I began to get educated to learn of Him, and His ways. I learned that we are to be stewards for God and his plans for the world. I attended and completed, catechism learning the bible by questions, and answers, Bible College in Biblical Studies, and finally completed the master’s program in Biblical Foundation. Chan talks about education gives you pride, and the feeling of being fearful as well. I realized that these elements had contributed to diminishing my passion in running the plays in my own life as well as sharing with others. Now, I find that I needed some alone time with God, to ask Him what is next. I came across this book through ChristianMom, and I’m beginning to now return to my passion. Chan mention in his book, Revelation chapter 2 where God talks about to the church about getting back to their first love. That passion that we had when we first got saved. When I got saved and came to this site, I had that passion to want to do my part in sharing Jesus with the world, and I started that right here on this site. One of the things that really stuck with me in this chapter is where Chan mentioned Act chapter 4 where Peter, and John were uneducated common men, with the power of the Holy Spirit having that passion to run the plays given by God, and is so need in the world today. The Holy Spirit is how we maintain that passion, with studies, education and do what He has called us to do.
  16. Most People would love to hear the voice of God My thoughts 03 25 2020 Hearing God’s voice was something I desired to hear. I wondered how could that be? How is it possible? After reading and studying the Word of God, I began to hear his voice. I found that His voice had been written in the Holy Bible, and when I have questions, that voice of His is delivered to me through the Holy Spirit. Once hearing his voice, I found the truth about myself. I was happy. But when giving God complete control, hearing his voice was an eye opener. I was happy, but I found that happy wasn’t truly happiness, there was a lot of things I had to change to be transformed into His image. You see changing is not comfortable for the most part. I felt, how life was going I was transitioning to where God wanted me. Even at a time when I thought things were going in the right direction, God showed me that it was time to move forward. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Galatians 5:25 I felt like, hold on, let me live here for a moment. But yet He wants us to learn to take the risk to trust him, and to follow his lead. Learning to following him, and hearing his voice just know the stakes are higher. God has called us to so much more.
  17. My thoughts 03 24 2020 God has an interesting look on experiencing the Holy Spirit, in His Word. I am at a place in my life where I need to get away in the right place and ask God, what is His will for my life again? As I keep following him, and his path for my life. He brings up the point of finding the Holy Spirit, by ministering to the poor. I can admit that at times my focus has been off. When Chan mention the poor, the Holy Spirit spoke directly to me, this scripture. Matthew 5:3-12 King James Version (KJV) 3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. 6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. 7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. 10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. I truly want the Holy Spirit to guide me in all truths. I am His temple. I certainly want to keep in step with Him. Finding that place and time to get alone with him and be prepared to listen and slow to speak, has been my short coming. I pray that God will strengthen me during this time to minister to the poor in spirit, the morn, the meek, those who hunger and thirst, the pure in heart, peace maker and those who are persecuted … Chan’s book is certainly starting off as a reminder of what we are called to do. When I say we, I am included in that, God spoke clearly to me in this case.
  18. Martha, I would like to welcome you to the site. Glad to have you. If there is anything that I can help with, or support you, let me know. Welcome abc
  19. Father God, we give you praise, glory, and honor. Father God, we thank you for loving us and protecting us. Father God, help us, we cry out to you for the forgiveness of sins. Father God, we cry out for your grace, and mercy to be changed to live for you, and to be the light in a dark world. Father God, we pray for this nation, and nations abroad. Father God, we pray for our natural, and spiritual leaders to have wisdom, knowledge to make the right decisions, and let it be godly decisions, concerning the people, and their lives. Father God, thank you for being the source of all of our problems. Father God, we pray for people who are sick, people who don't know you, people who are lost, people who have family members who have died, and people who are suffering spiritually, financially, physically, emotionally, and with careers, and education. Father God, we pray for your people who are weak in the faith, and for those who are strong. That you will cover them with your strength, and the Holy Spirit, that gives power to do your will in their life, and to support in the lives of others. Father God, we give you glory, honor and praise for all you are doing and going to do, to draw souls back to you. We ask that you raise them up to be a nation of believers. We pray this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen. Is there anyone who will stand in agree with me? Please feel free to continue in prayer for this situation.

Today, please remind us that this time of social distancing and isolation will not last forever.
