Stand Firm: Scripture Writing Plan for August 2019

Because of the ceaseless conflict with Satan (and our own fleshly nature), it is our responsibility to stay grounded on the foundation which Christ has laid for us. Are we looking to Him to be the source of our strength or are we relying on our own power? Are we determining daily to stand firm against Satan's schemes, or do we cave to convenience?

The Beauty of God’s Word: July 2019 Scripture Writing Plan

Psalm 119 centers on God's word---it's beauty, power, value, quality---and it will be our focus in this month's scripture writing. Because we love God, we treasure the words He has inspired and preserved for our benefit. The creation declares His glory, wisdom, and majesty, but His word gives us insight into His plan for mankind, His righteous nature, and His steadfast love for us.

Made One in Christ: Scripture Writing Plan June 2019

We often hear the quote, "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." Children might attempt to cook (or pretend to cook) alongside their parents or work on their toy car while their father works under the family car. A budding artist might attempt to reproduce the signature technique of a master artist. In each case, the imitation springs from admiration. Similarly, when we are united with Christ, we are so in awe of who He is that we attempt to imitate his example.

Living Our Faith: Scripture Writing Plan for May 2019

The book of James is like one of those magnification mirrors women use to put on makeup. In those mirrors, all the lines and contours are easier to see. Cringe-worthy pores, wrinkles, blemishes, and unwanted hairs also become more manifest, and we make any modifications within our power to conceal or alter such things. Every single time I read this book, it exposes the oversized pores and blemishes in my life, challenging me to change both my attitude and my actions.

Rest, Refuge, and Peace: Scripture Writing Plan April 2019

As I was visiting with a friend yesterday afternoon, we started talking vacations. Since having kids, I have felt as though vacations are more work than they are relaxing. More than once, I would have preferred to stay home so I could actually rest. Have you ever felt the same? While we live on this earth, work… Continue reading Rest, Refuge, and Peace: Scripture Writing Plan April 2019

In Whom or in What do we Truly Trust?

Who or what is your “safe place”?

Who or what gives you a sense of security?

It’s easy to pay lip service to God while we place our trust in earthly supports.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. James 1.5 Our lives are peppered with daily choices, and the impact of our choices may have far-reaching consequences. To navigate through our words and our choices, we need wisdom.

February Scripture Writing Plan: The Love of the Lord

Romantic love is splendid, but its presence or absence does not determine our value.

Romantic love is euphoric, but only lasts for a short time.

Romantic love is beautiful, but it pales in comparison to the love of God.

For the month of February, our Scripture Writing Plan will focus on the love of God because there is no greater love than His.
