Romans 8:16-18 ESV The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are … Continue reading Provided We Suffer
Philippians 4:10-12a ESV I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how … Continue reading Winning the Battle
Would you all pray for me? My husband and I were gone for two weeks visiting with family and when we got back home I got sick with a bad head cold. My head is all stopped up and I feel dizzy, and it is really hard to concentrate to write anything. I don't take … Continue reading Needing Prayer
Isaiah 9:2 NASB The people who walk in darkness Will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them. What is darkness? It is absence of light. It is evil, wickedness, sin, lies. And, who are those who walk in darkness today? According to scripture, they are … Continue reading Our Yoke Breaker

In him exists no evil. … Continue reading I Take My Stand
This morning, before I sat down to write today’s devotional blog post, I happened to see that someone had read this older post yesterday, and I was drawn to read it again. Thus, I felt led to repost it, only this time on “Run With It.” It is powerful! And, it actually is very fitting for what the Lord is going to have me write about today from Philippians, chapter 1.
