Are you being tested?

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:2-4 (KJV)

Trouble can come in many forms. It can be a loss of a job or an illness. Most times we pray to God when these types of things test our faith. We need to pray every day for continually income and healthy lives. We need to pray this for all of our friends and family because we can be effected by their trouble as well.

It’s ok that you haven’t done this in the past because you’ve been forgiven. The time to start is now. Don’t wait until your faith is tested. Don’t be embarrassed or feel like you don’t know how to do this. God will lead the way and he will show you what to do and how to do it. So start your day with prayer and you will feel joy and happiness every day.

Rejoice!

Rejoice evermore. 1 Thessalonians 5:16 (KJV)

This verse is true in so many ways. When you are feeling down because of the weather or a situation in your life, remember that God is there for you and he will always be there. Lift your problems to him and then be glad and rejoice. God will take care of you and any situation you are in. No matter what it is or what others say about it.

When you walk in God’s footsteps, you will be led in the direction you are to go, so don’t get discouraged or down because the light is at the end of the tunnel and God has a plan. So, do as my Grandma always says. “Keep on the sunny side”!

Do you let others get to you?

The economy appears to be in a bit of a slump right now and that can cause people to be down and discouraged. When this happens, people are grumpy and take it out on others or they want you to feel the same as they do. We can’t do that because it’s not God’s desire for us. We need to chose to be cheerful and full of joy each and every day. No matter what happens or what doesn’t happen.
Here is a Bible verse for you to remember when you go out into the world and deal with people.
“Set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth”.  (Colossians 3:2, AMP)

Bible verses to live by!

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

I’ve been searching the Bible for a couple different Bible verses and found what I was looking for. They are definitely verses to remember, say everyday, and to live by. Here are the three I was looking for.

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

Matthew 21:22

And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.

Mark 11:24

Therefore I say unto you, what things soever you desire, when you pray, believe  that you receive them, and you shall have them.

I hope these verses mean as much to you as the do for me.

Path of life

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalm 16:11

Prayer…is it hard for you?

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

Prayer is the easiest and hardest of all things; the simplest and the sublimest; the weakest and the most powerful; its results lie outside the range of human possibilities – they are limited only by the omnipotence of God. ~~ EM Bounds

This quote is so true. When you have something bad going on in your life and you need God to help you out in every way, it’s hard to sit down and pray for God’s guidance and help. On the other hand when you have something simple it’s easy to pray. Why is that? Maybe it will be easier to pray the longer and more often you pray. One can only pray about it and thank God that it will happen. Don’t wait until you are in desperate need of God’s help, pray every day that things will go in your favor and you will be successful in whatever you do.
