But in your hearts set apart (sanctify) Christ as Lord. 1 Peter 3: 15 niv March 27,2012
Greetings Brethren, you who are precious to our Lord,
What does ‘set apart Christ as Lord in my heart’ mean? How often am I deaf to the Truth I read!
Warren Wiersbe defines it this way: “It means to turn everything over to Him, and to live only to please Him and glorify Him. It means to…Continue

The storms of life are gathering, the darkness increasing, but it is only temporary my child for soon the sun will shine again and you will emerge from the hiding place of my wings into the dawn of a new day. Through the enemy rages and the wind blows and the water threatens to overtake you. It is only a threat, designed to make you fear. Be secure in yourself, be secure in me to give an answer to the wind and the waves and those who rise up against you and sometimes that answer…Continue

March 19, 2012 - The Time Has Come - Kerrie E. Bradshaw
The time has come for change. The time has come to stop your weeping and move forward in me. Hiding out is not an option. Withdrawal is not for this season. This season is for boldness to go after the enemy and push him back. The more you withdraw the bolder he gets. Sound the battle cry! Rak Chazak and use the weapons of your warfare to push him back. As David said, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come…Continue

March 21, 2012 - Pull Back Your Breastbone - Kerrie E. Bradshaw
I am the Lord your God, King of the universe. The world is changing. This is not the country you grew up in. The innocence is gone. The demonic agenda has taken control, for the heart of man is not mine. You will know them by their fruits and their fruit stinks, putrid and rotten, It is a stench upon the land. It is not too late as a nation to reverse course, not too late - YET. The heart of the people will be revealed…Continue

As a single christian father of two amazing little girls, life does seem to be more satisfying and partially complete for me. On the same note, if i may be real for a minute, i still find myself at a miss when it comes to not having the love and time spent romance of tht special someone. I trust and believe tht God, in his time will reveal who he has for me. Keeping in mind tht to remain faithful and patient while waiting on God is no small task! Yet i kno tht myself and any others such as…Continue
Next weekend I will be attending a Woven Women's Weekend through our church. It is a 24 hour retreat at a hotel. It is a very nice time to get away, worship God, pray, have fun with other women and friends. My best friend and I attended this retreat last year. It was an amazing experience. I was at a very low point in my life. I had just recently lost my job, and was unemployed. I was dealing with a lot of things. Through prayer and encouragement I was able to see the light at the end of the…Continue
Recently I fell in love with a very wonderful man who brought to my life such joy, passion and energy. My friends and I saw a side of me that none of us had ever seen. I was so very happy but then the dark side of my life rose up and began to bring me down. As a teenager I was a victim of sexual abuse which absolutely destroyed my sense of self worth, sense of beauty or goodness or belief that I was loveable or capable of loving a man. So when this gift of God's love came into my…Continue
Keith needs to get off the methadone, please pray for wisdom as how to achieve this. We are reading 2 books together, Knowing God and The Wake-up Call.
Both talk about living a fully surrendered life.
I believe and know God heals and can deliver Keith.
Getting off methadone can be a very long process if he does it like the medical community suggests. Detox can be very hard for the body, so Keith will need to lean on God like never before.
Thanks for your…Continue
March 16, 2012 - My Servant Job - Kerrie E. Bradshaw
The Lord your God is one God. The Lord your God is a God of love, but I am also a God of justice and I mete out that justice with a firm right hand. The God of all mercy and grace beckons you to come, to come and sit at my feet and hear the words of my very heart, for mercy reigns supreme. The rod of judgment is falling in your midst; a disobedient nation and a people who have brought this on themselves. The questions I asked my…Continue

March 15, 2012 - Don't Mess With Him/Her - Kerrie E. Bradshaw
I am the Lord your God, King of the universe and everything revolves around me. My hand is the source of every good thing. My eyes travel to and fro looking for a righteous heart. In those who serve justified by faith and righteous by my blood. My eyes pierce the darkness and nothing can hide from my sight, not the darkest of hearts and minds, for I see every thought and every plan hatched in the dark nights against my…Continue

Just a little over two months now since we lost our mom. It may seem odd, but we are still celebrating the fruits of that day...that very sad day that brought our family together.
Our family has never been overly lovey dovey. But some amazing changes have come about. I've reconciled with one of my sisters where there has been a riff on and off for 7 years and I make a point of saying I love you to everyone in our family when we're on the phone. To some, I've NEVER said that before.…Continue

GREATER things are yet to come! Praise his name!
There is no turning, praying, confessing, asking that can add to or help pay for what only God Himself give us when we put our Faith alone in Him alone. Good works are necessary for rewards, blessings, and God's friendship but have no part in helping us get to heaven. Hope we all agree. www.greatestnews.org

1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and…Continue

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians…Continue

We all know what being a Christian is. Or, at least, we should. Read your Bible. Pray. Go to church. Tell others about Jesus and the wonderful gift of salvation. And abstain from sin.
Yes, we should abstain from sin. You may be saved, and that knowledge, knowing it can never be taken from you, doesn't give you license to sin. Remember Jesus's words to the accused adulteress? "Go, and sin no more (John 8:11 KJV)."
Paul twice also gives nix to the idea: "What…Continue
