PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Romans 2:13 says, “For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.” To be honest, I have avoided writing on this kind of Scripture.

10.27.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Leaning

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• When I was a little girl, my mom used to fuss at me to stop leaning on her… I was constantly leaning on her in stores, at church, and at home.

But Jesus can handle … Continue reading 10.27.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Leaning

10.8.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: The Armor of God

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• The Bible tells us to be watchful and prepared, not only for the return of Christ, but for Satan’s attempts to trip us up.
