8.31.17 Prayer Prompt: Friends Forever

PRAYER PROMPT ••• About a year ago, I started doing the Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies.  I haven’t missed one since and through this online community, I’ve met and befriended so many amazing women from all over the world.  One thing that has struck me over this year of online study is that I will probably never meet many (if any) of these fellow online … Continue reading 8.31.17 Prayer Prompt: Friends Forever

8.24.17 Prayer Prompt: The Company You Keep

PRAYER PROMPT ••• The company you keep matters.  1 Corinthians 15:33 says, “bad company corrupts good character.”  If one bad apple spoils a bunch, can our character fall to the same fate?  Yes.  As much as I want to believe that we can “fix” others, we simply can’t.  And a bad character can bring us down.  But shouldn’t we, as Christians, spend more time with … Continue reading 8.24.17 Prayer Prompt: The Company You Keep

8.20.17 Prayer Prompt: Using Our Spiritual Gifts

PRAYER PROMPT ••• In 1 Corinthians, Paul talks about spiritual gifts.  Honestly, while I don’t talk about it a lot here, spiritual gifts is one of my favorite topics to study.  What are your spiritual gifts?  Don’t even say, “I don’t have any.”  The Holy Spirit gives all God’s children spiritual gifts.  We don’t have every gift listed in the Bible, but when we use … Continue reading 8.20.17 Prayer Prompt: Using Our Spiritual Gifts

8.9.17 Prayer Prompt: A Yeast Infiltration 

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Have you ever made bread?  It’s amazing how so little yeast can overtake the batch of dough and cause the whole thing to multiply.  Ever put rising dough in a bowl that was too small?  Yeah, me too.  It’s like that old horror film from the 50’s, “The Blob.”  Paul used an illustration of yeast as a warning in a letter to … Continue reading 8.9.17 Prayer Prompt: A Yeast Infiltration 

8.7.17 Prayer Prompt: Throw Your Good Deeds in the Fire

PRAYER PROMPT ••• My favorite verses in scripture are Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”  These verses leave no ambiguity about it – nothing we do is good enough to earn a place in heaven.  We … Continue reading 8.7.17 Prayer Prompt: Throw Your Good Deeds in the Fire

8.5.17 Prayer Prompt: God Calls the Unlikely

PRAYER PROMPT ••• One of my favorite things about studying God’s word is His unexpected way of thinking.  He loves to use the least likely candidate or the most unlikely of situations to bring about amazing results.  From a Human Resources perspective, His way is like pulling the most unskilled and under qualified candidate out of the stack of resumes and offering them the job! … Continue reading 8.5.17 Prayer Prompt: God Calls the Unlikely
