Yesterday, I reviewed the Streams in the Desert app. You can also read this great devotional classic online at Crosswalk. I thought I would share today’s devotional with you. It is so powerful! Nothing shall be impossible unto you (Matt. 17:20). It is possible, for those who really are willing to reckon on the power of the Lord for keeping and victory, to lead a life in which His promises are taken as they stand and are found to be...

Sunday’s Song Special – Kutless – Even If

Posted by on Feb 17, 2013 in music, Praise, technology, transformation, Uncategorized | 1 comment

I don’t ordinarily plan to have a Sunday song, but this is just too good NOT to share! My thoughts have been taking me captive all afternoon. After a Praise-Fest and a session of renewing my mind using my I Deserve a Donut App, I knew that the Lord was prescribing a bath for me! So, I grabbed my iPod and had Genius make up a playlist based on One Thing Remains. While I soaked in the tub, up popped a song that I didn’t even know I had...

Saturdays’ Song Special: Kristian Stanfill – One Thing Remains

Posted by on Feb 16, 2013 in music, Praise, transformation, Uncategorized | 1 comment

God is using this song to wash my mind again and again constantly with truth… The chorus has gotten stuck in my mind for the past three days. When I am on the tennis court, teaching kids, vacuuming the carpets at home, driving in my car, in a conversation with my husband (or anyone), the overarching thought going through my mind is: Your love never fails, never gives up, never runs out on me. You know what is TRUE? All other loves may...

…train yourself to be godly. 1 Timothy 4:7b About 16 years ago, I decided to train for the San Francisco marathon. Everything I did was affected by this one goal: To finish 26.3 miles and to finish well. Even in the “small” things, I had an eye on this goal. I was training to be an endurance athlete. How I ate, what I did with my time, what I drank, even the clothes I wore–everything was affected by this goal. During...

Techie Tuesday #03 – Scripture Memory App!

One of the best things we can do to experience transformation and the renewing of our minds is memorize Scripture. The playing of Christian music is one way of getting godly thoughts bathing our minds, but another very practical way is to let God write His Word on our hearts. I seek you with all my heart;     do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart     that I might not sin against you. Praise be to...

Step 11 – Focus on Others

Posted by on Feb 11, 2013 in friendship, practical, service, transformation, Uncategorized | 0 comments

One of the temptations when we go through trials is to turn inward. Sometimes, we may want to isolate from others completely. Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. 9 Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.  …ifyou spend yourselves in...
