Matthew 28:16-20: “Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him, they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

1 Timothy 5:20 — “Those who continue in sin, rebuke in the presence of all, so that the rest also will be fearful of sinning.”
Every day I begin my devotion in prayer. I ask God to clear my conscience so I can bask in the wisdom of His Words. After reading the word, I begin to go into deep prayer and then write that prayer in my prayer journal. This journal has all of my thanks, all of my request and all of my sin.
2 Samuel 11-12: “David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.” And Nathan said to David, “The Lord also has put away your sin; you shall not die. Nevertheless, because by this deed you have utterly scorned the Lord, the child who is born to you shall die.”
Lately, God has given me a desire to add real value to other people. Worrying about my needs all the time has caused me to feel depressed, anxious, and angry. So although I still care about myself and even desire to make sure I stay healthy and productive, I am trying to be less self-centered. I want to be more others-centered. Because when I am others-centered, I feel peace, joy, and happiness.
1 Timothy 1:19 “Keeping your faith [leaning completely on God with absolute trust and confidence in His guidance] and having a good conscience.”
Catching The Season’s Contagious Colds
The winter season is here! We’ve traded our boat-shoes for snow-boots and our mornings are spent shoveling the car out of the snow and defrosting our car windows. Snowflakes decorate our home windows while snowmen stand proudly in our front lawn. The kids are engaging in snow fights, making snow angels, and building igloos in the backyard. When I was younger, I shoveled snow off of my neighbor’s sidewalk and driveways for extra cash.
Stand firm with the Gospel. I’ve always been confused about the meaning of the passage in Ephesians 6 about the full armor of God.
