Daily Scriptures 11/26/12

Scriptures: Psalm 78:3-4 3Which we have heard and known, And our fathers have told us. 4We will not hide them from their children, Telling to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done. (NKJV)

Nugget: The impact parents & fellow Christian adults have on children is huge. What children learn from these adults can impact their future walk with God & all there is to learn about Him & our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ.

These scriptures remind me of going to church with my Grandma, going to Sunday School at a young age, & enjoying the words that were taught to me. Those early days of my Christian walk are still with me, as well as the individuals who had an impact on me.

Let’s not be blind to the impact we could & do have on the youth. There’s so much for us to instill in them---teach them, do not hide God’s word from them, & continue to touch future generations with the goodness of God & his strength & wonderful works!

Quote: "Every child born into the world is a new thought of God, an ever fresh and radiant possibility." -Kate Douglas Wiggin

Daily Scriptures 11/19/12

Scripture: Psalm 4:4 Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah (NKJV)

Nugget: Anger can be an emotion that makes us do things we thought we’d never do. The actions behind reacting out of anger usually follow with our regrets, wishing we’d never done something.

Before reacting, we must take the time to be still, meditate, & pray on the direction we should take. We know that “two wrongs don’t make a right”, so it’s best to take a step back, be still, & seek God before reacting.

Don’t allow anger to be a ruling force in your life that brings on regret.

Quote: “How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.” -Marcus Aurelius

Daily Scriptures 11/15/12

Scripture: Psalm 119:68 You are good, and do good; Teach me Your statutes. (NKJV)

Nugget: Many of us have heard the saying, “God is good, all the time. And all the time, God is good.” This is what today’s scripture reminded me of. There’s no limit to God’s goodness. He continues to bless us day in and day out. All we have to do is follow Him, believe in His word, & love & accept His son, Jesus Christ, as our Lord & Savior.

May we not only know that God is good, but may we seek Him & His will daily. Each day is an opportunity for us to experience the goodness of God, but it is also an opportunity for us to learn & to grow in Him as well.

Quote: “A person who wholly follows the Lord is one who believes that the promises of God are trustworthy, that He is with His people, and that they are well able to overcome.” -Watchman Nee

Daily Scriptures 11/14/12

Scripture: Psalm 102:17 He will listen to the prayers of the destitute. He will not reject their pleas. (NLT)

Nugget: We’ve all gone through the times where we feel that God isn’t listening & isn’t answering our prayers. We wonder if He’s up there & what could be going on. It’s as if He’s disappeared on us!

However, God is always there. We may feel that He isn’t, but He most definitely is. God always listens & is always available. He may not answer in the manner or time we expect, but He doesn’t reject the prayers from our hearts & what we send up to Him.

May we continue to seek God in all things; even when we feel discouraged. Our God is not rejecting us, but perfecting something in us that can only come from Him.

Quote: "God does nothing except in response to believing prayer." John Wesley

Daily Scriptures 11/13/12

Scripture: I Peter 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. (NKJV)

Nugget: In many conversations & during many sermons, we have heard it being stated that, “We are in the last days.” Events, on-goings, & other things we see & experience are showing us that this is true.

It’s so important for us to draw nearer to God, to allow Him into our thoughts, actions, & deeds. We must share His gospel with those we know, for indeed the last days are upon us.

How serious are we about our relationship with God? Our walk with Him? Getting into His word? Our prayers? Do we know Jesus? Let us be serious & become more serious about these things & our prayers.

Quote: “Not only do we not know God except through Jesus Christ; we do not even know ourselves except through Jesus Christ.” -Blaise Pascal

Running Update: The Big 10!!

I’m continuing to prepare for the half marathon that I’m registered for. However, I actually registered for a half marathon in December in addition to the one I want to complete in February.  I’ve been in preparation since this past February.


Well, my running partner & I hit a milestone yesterday! We ran our first 10 miles! Whooo hooo! I haven’t done this before & it’s a great accomplishment for sure! Now, if we can do 10, we can do the upcoming 13.1 (half marathon!)

Our running group has recently completed a run in our town along Pres. Barack Obama Parkway; this is a recently opened street in our town. We completed the run to encourage voting (not to encourage voting for a particular candidate). It was a good time!

Yep, my new running shoes have been getting a workout for sure!!

Daily Scriptures 11/5/12

Scripture: Psalm 47:2 For the LORD Most High is awesome; He is a great King over all the earth. (NKJV)

Nugget: With so many things going on now-a-days, we must take the time to focus & to re-focus on God. No matter what people say, what the news says, & how we may get discouraged, we must remember that our God is awesome. Once we focus on God, & all that He has done, our load can be lighter because we know about His amazing works.

There’s nothing happening that isn’t in His plan to happen. Don’t let things, people, & situations discourage you. Our God is a great King & His awesomeness is cannot be measured.

Quote: “God is the light that shows me the way, for there is nothing that God cannot do.” -Unknown
