Sunday’s Quote

By Dr. S.M. Lockridge

The Bible says my King is a seven-way king….He’s the King of the Jews; that’s a racial king….He’s the King of Israel; that’s a national King….He’s the King of Righteousness….He’s the King of the Ages…..He’s the King of Heaven….He’s the King of Glory….He’s the King of kings, and He’s the Lord of lords. That’s my King. Well….I wonder, do you know Him?…. David said, “The Heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His handiwork. My King is a sovereign King. No means of measure can define His limitless love. No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of His shoreless supply. No barrier can hinder Him from pouring out His blessings. He’s enduringly strong….He’s entirely sincere….He’s eternally steadfast….He’s immortally graceful….He’s imperially powerful….He’s impartially merciful……. Do you know Him?

He’s the greatest phenomenon that ever crossed the horizon of this world. He’s God’s Son….He’s a sinner’s Saviour….He’s the centerpiece of civilization….He stands in the solitude of Himself….He’s august….He’s unique….He’s unparalleled….He’s unprecedented….He’s the loftiest idea in literature….He’s the highest personality in philosophy….He’s the supreme problem in higher criticism….He’s the fundamental doctrine of true theology….He’s the cardinal necessity for spiritual religion….He’s the miracle of the age…. He’s the superlative of everything good that you choose to call Him….He’s the only one qualified to be an all sufficient Saviour…… I wonder if you know Him today?

He supplies strength for the weak….He’s available for the tempted and the tried….He sympathizes and He saves….He strengthens and sustains….He guards and He guides….He heals the sick….He cleanses lepers….He forgives sinners….He discharges debtors….He delivers captives….He defends the feeble….He blesses the young….He serves the unfortunate….He regards the aged….He rewards the diligent….and He beautifies the meek……. I wonder if you know Him?

Well, my King….is the King….He’s the key to knowledge….He’s the wellspring to wisdom….He’s the doorway of deliverance….He’s the pathway of peace….He’s the roadway of righteousness ….He’s the highway of holiness….He’s the gateway of glory……. Do you know Him?

Well….His office is manifold….His promise is sure….His light is matchless….His goodness is limitless….His mercy is everlasting….His love never changes….His word is enough….His grace is sufficient….His reign is righteous….and His yoke is easy, and his burden is light. I wish I could describe Him to you, but He’s indescribable….He’s incomprehensible….He’s invincible….He’s irresistible.

Well, you can’t get Him out of your mind….You can’t get Him off of your hand….You can’t out live Him, and you can’t live without Him….The Pharisees couldn’t stand Him, but they found out they couldn’t stop Him….Pilate couldn’t find any fault in Him….The witnesses couldn’t get their testimonies to agree….Herod couldn’t kill Him….Death couldn’t handle Him, and the grave couldn’t hold Him. Yea!!!, that’s my King, that’s my King.

Father…”Thine is the Kingdom….and the Power….and the Glory….Forever”….and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever. How long is that? And ever…and ever…and when you get through with all the forevers, then…. AMEN!….AMEN!


Good Reads…

This link is for the mom who feels overwhelmed and drained in the heat of the moment. If you are like me, a reminder like this  is so helpful. Time goes so quickly and the moments we have now will soon be history.  I’m gonna miss this…

This is a great e-book on teaching our children good habits. I want begin this kind of active training with my little ones. I get overwhelmed with all the areas of need but this lays out a plan that makes it seem attainable. Hopefully we can learn these habits together.

Be A Yes Mom was a great writing to remind me of the need to take the opportunity and lay aside my own desire (or lack of it) for my little ones that need to hear the word “Yes”. Just a few days ago, I was making some boundaries clear in relation to which books in the bookcase they make look at without asking. A few on another shelf are theirs also and I told them to ask before they get those. My son said, “Will you say “Yes”?. Ohhh…Maybe I’ve said “no” too many times.

This last recommendation really encouraged me to lay aside the way I feel about myself and focus on Christ! Exhale and Dance!

Enjoy these articles and feel free to share your thoughts.

Sunday’s Quote…

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.”

~Albert Einstein

Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

Colossians 3:9

That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

Ephesians 4:14 & 15

Wordless Wednesday!

“You will never cease to be the most amazed person on earth at what God has done for you on the inside.”

~Oswald Chambers


I’m busy! I get overwhelmed!

I want the peace that passes understanding.

I want to be sweet with my kids.

I long to be perfect…

a perfect wife, a perfect mom.

I see so much lack in my life.

Then like a flood the tears fall as GRACE pours in and THE ONE who is peace whispers deep and clear.

Why do I think I need to perform for Him?

Why do I try?

He wants me to trust that he has and will perform for me!

Will I trust?

If you have time and wanna be blessed to tears read this post written by Ann at Holy Experience.

A Merry Heart…

Proverbs 15:13
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance…

Proverbs 17:22
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine:

These are two verses that come to mind as I ponder the difference between a person that deals with stress in a positive frame of mind and one that sees life as a drudge. As a busy mom, I can easily get caught in a negative, overwhelmed state. It’s thankfulness that produces joy… and joyful is a happy heart. There is always something to be thankful for.

Top 5 things I am grateful for:
An AMAZING Father in heaven
A husband who adores me
3 healthy, happy kids
A sound mind and healthy body
Life in the country
