This was actually a difficult one....

Quest: (N)  an act or instance of seeking

I am definitely on a quest to learn more about God everyday. Are you? 

 29 But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul
Deuteronomy 4:29 NKJV



I love YouVersion.com 

I love that they an app for your smart phone too!

No reason not to get your devotion in now.  Not that you should try to make up a reason not to get it done. God made time for you and you should do so for Him! 

I have been doing a year long devotional reading plan through You Version. Right now I am on day 90.

"David asked God to search for sin and point it out, even to the level of testing his thoughts. This is exploratory surgery for sin. How are we to recognize sin unless God points it out? Then, when God shows us, we can repent and be forgiven. Make this verse your prayer. If you ask the Lord to search your heart and your thoughts, and to reveal your sin, you will be continuing on God's "path of everlasting life."

Included with this is scripture from Psalms. Psalms 139: 23-24 NKJV

 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; 24 And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting. 

God's plan for me...well this verse and devotional definitely reaches out in His time for sure. Dwelling on our thoughts can be devastating if they are not with Him. When you struggle with where you mind goes....pray this verse so that He can help guide you.

UnHooked! 7 Steps To Emotional Freedom Book Give Away!

It has been to long since I have blogged. I have been very sidetracked. I am hoping to get back on track. I have been given a task by my Pastor's wife and I hope that I can share it with you at the end of the week. As you been to pray and seek the Lord; you have to be willing to hear what God has to say. God has shown me me somethings and I hope that I can grow in my Spirit and glorify God.

BUT back track!! As a part of the CWA Review Crew, I was given an opportunity to enter into a giveaway for a self help book. After reading what the book was about, I am more excited than before. Everyone loves to win, but to win something so helpful and uplifting makes it all that more exciting.

 One of the requirements to enter into the contest is to answer this question.....

"What would be the best thing that would happen if you were able to get “unhooked” from the impact of a past painful experience?"

So many ways to answer this question but be sure it is a heartfelt answer. Pray and listen to what God says.

Telling Brings Fellowship by Rosemary Jensen

1 John 1:1-10

In 1 John 1:3-4 we see John eager to tell his friends and associates what he knows of Jesus - what he has "seen and heard".  It seems that he could hardly wait to tell them, because by telling them what he knew of Jesus he would promote fellowship with his friends.  True fellowship was what John wanted, and it is what we want too.  Fellowship is not just camaraderie; it is what two or more people experience when they have the same goals and desires, when they think alike and communicate in such a way as to actually enter into the others experience.

John wanted this kind of communication with his friends.  It was as if he was saying to them, "Let me tell you what I have seen and heard of Jesus Christ so that we may have the same mind about him, the same desire to know him better, the same experience of him."  Then he goes on to say that we will have this fellowship because we have fellowship with the same Father and the same Son, Jesus Christ.  We fellowship with God (the Father and the Son), and he brings us into fellowship because together we share his life.

Are you eager to declare to your family and friends what you have "seen and heard" of Jesus Christ so that you may enter into true fellowship with them?  Telling them about Jesus (and also listening to them tell you!) is the most fulfilling experience you can have with other human beings.  Exchanging the knowledge of Jesus Christ with others will bring you greater joy than you can imagine.  At least that's what John says in 1 John 1:4: "We write this to make our [and your] joy complete."  Telling brings fellowship and fellowship brings joy.

Talking with others about Jesus is always risky.  They may label you a fanatic.  You may risk turning them off.  But it is worth the risk, because it will bring that complete joy you desperately desire.

These are not my words but those of Rosemary Jensen. This was published in my Bible and I felt compelled to share it with others. It definitely rings true in my heart as I hope it does in yours.


To Easy Drill Sergent, To Easy!


Definition of PRAYER
a (1) : an address (as a petition) to God or a god in word or thought <said a prayer for the success of the voyage> (2) : a set order of words used in praying.

The dictionary actually list many others that go with this and make it sound so much more complicated than it really is. Prayer is so simple, free and yet so very Powerful! The power of prayer can only be surpassed by God alone.You can find so much in prayer. To me, this post really only needed that one word. Prayer.

Psalm 107:28-30 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven

Matthew 7:7  ”Ask, and it will be given to you seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Matthew 21:22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

Mark 11:24  Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

John 14:13-14 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it

Mark 9:29  And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”

Acts 9:40 But Peter put them all outside, and knelt down and prayed; and turning to the body he said, “Tabitha, arise.” And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up.

James 5:14-16 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another,that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

Ephesians 6:18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,

Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
