There’s just no Substitute for the Bible and prayer.  Period. Here are some practical strategies to help you as you make time to be in His presence.

I Know My God will be Faithful

God’s timing is impeccable. The Children’s Ministry magazine this quarter had a story in it that caught my eye.  It was about Willie, a 10-year-old Atlanta boy who sang the song, “Every Praise” for three hours until his kidnapper said, “Get out of the car.” I pulled up a Youtube video showing Willie on a talk show and he said, “I knew that Jesus was going to be with me and He was going to take me through the steps {Read More}

Flip-Flop Cupcakes

Inspired by yesterday’s post, Walking it Out, today I want to share a fun summer dessert, Flip-Flop Cupcakes. The kiddos will enjoy them and, let’s face it, the adults will too! You will need… Cupcakes (already frosted) Keebler Vienna Cookies Air Heads Xtremes sweet and sour candy (or another similar candy for the straps) Directions… Slip a knife between one cookie and the crème to separate.  These type cookies don’t pull apart neatly like an Oreo, so the knife helps {Read More}

Walking it Out

* Affiliate Links I love what Beth Moore writes in her new Bible study entitled, Children of the Day. She writes, “Come walk with Me. Even with a limp. That’s what Jacob did (Gen. 32:31). Even in the fire. That’s what Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego did (Dan. 3:25). Even when we feel like all hope is gone and no one came through…Come walk with Me, whatever shape you’re in, no matter how wounded or bruised. Just bring Me your whole {Read More}

The Ultimate Example of Kindness

Recently I happened upon an interesting story in the Bible that I don’t remember reading before.  It was from 2 Samuel 24.  It’s about the time  the Israelites were once again rebelling against the Lord and punishment was imminent.  Through the prophet Gad, God gave David three choices as to the consequences.  One, he could choose seven years of famine.  Two, he could choose to flee for three months from his enemies while they pursued him.  Three, he could choose {Read More}

In His Presence #24: The Majesty of My Redeemer

“On the glorious splendor of Your majesty and on Your wonderful works, I will meditate.” Psalm 145:5 Recently, the word “majesty” has just popped into my mind over and over.  I have been spending some of my In His Presence time delving into the meaning of that word.  I am in awe when I think of the majesty of Christ.  I have been listening to the song, Majesty on Youtube featuring Michael W. Smith and Crown Him  (Majesty) with Christ {Read More}

In His Presence #22 : What’s Your Mission?

I went to hear Pam Tebow, mother of the famed quarter back Tim Tebow,  speak recently.  What an anointed speaker she is, with many wonderful things to share.  One of the things the Lord spoke to me about was when she asked, what’s your mission? Ms. Tebow said missions can change with seasons of life.  She shared, “Mother’s with young children, you know what your mission is.” Don’t we often try to busy ourselves with things we think are our {Read More}

In His Presence #21: Live Differently

“Live Like No One Else.”  I just read that on someone’s car.  It was a bumper sticker from Dave Ramsey.  I know the premise behind that sticker is that we need not go into debt feeling like we have to keep up with the “Jones.”  But, I think, as Christians we could take that slogan even further. The Bible says: And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you {Read More}

In His Presence #20: A Steadfast Mind

My personal In His Presence time for the past few weeks has been focused on “my mind.”  I want to have a steadfast mind like it says in Isaiah 26:3: You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. In the book, Breaking Free by Beth Moore, she goes to great length to examine four phrases from this verse. The first is:  You will keep.  She explains that God is like a “watchman” {Read More}

In His Presence #19: Think on These Things

I hope you are still making time to get In His Presence.  If you’ve missed a week, the devil will definitely try to make you feel guilty, but don’t give up!  When thoughts like that creep into your mind, remember Philippians 4:8, Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things (ESV).  When {Read More}
