    RHM Devotional: Climbing God's Mountain from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfi...

    He took a towel, and wrapped a towel around his waist. Then he poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, 'Lord, do you wash my feet?' Jesus answered him, 'You don't kno...

The Jigsaw Puzzle

  • For it is precept on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little. Isaiah 28:10 WEB

    With little pieces of the jigsaw puzzle scattered all over the table, we began to try and assemble it. This one was seriously difficult because someone had mistakenly mixed a couple of other puzzles together in the same box, and now there were pieces that did not belong there at all. Fortunately we had a picture to go by, and eventually it started to take shape. When finally complete, it was beautiful.

    God sees the bigger picture of your life, while you cannot. He knows what pieces to keep, and what needs to be removed. After walking with Him a while, your life will begin to take shape, and when complete, it will become something beautiful.

    Work with God and allow Him to separate you from the things that do not belong in your life. He will not separate you from your friends, or the things that you love and want to keep around like lust, or greed. You have to hate it, guard against it, and separate yourself from it. If He delivered you from something that you love, you would just return to it.

    We have a free will to choose what God we serve just as Joshua and the Israelites (Joshua 24:15). Calling Jesus Lord only gives Him a title, it is doing what He says that makes Him your Lord.

    Also, do not get ahead of God and begin to throw out things that He intends to keep. Just work at His pace. You do not need to understand everything right now, He does, and that is enough. It is one piece at a time and one day at a time. It is line upon line, here a little, there a little, eventually this thousand piece puzzle will begin to make sense.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I choose You today. Please help me get in tune with Your plan for my life and change what You will. Guide me and help me make the right decisions. Teach me and make Your path clear to me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Happy Sunday! The RHM Live weekend service is happening today at 10am EST! We will be continuing our online Bible Study with Chapter Five of the Book of Acts. To find out more or join us this morning, go to this page: RHM Live

Lord, You gave my life and it is Yours. Le t Your Will be done, but please, I beg of You, please take away the pain in my body lately, especially this stomach pain. You know how much work takes out of me, but I cannot relax and recharge with this pain draining me further.  Please heal what is caasing it, take the pain away so I can sleep, relax and eat without fear. Thank you Lord. Amen.

Thank you all so much! After I posted this my stomach pain stopped, Praise God, but the back pain that had accompanied it was still there. It finally improved enough for me to sleep, and I was much better the next day. The Lord is so wonderful and so are you all for praying for me. ((hugs))

Right now I could use some prayers--I have cut out non believers in my life and have returned to church and a mens group. I have struggled with not feeling good enough after my divorce proceedings almost 5 years ago.

You are making good choices, Ted, cutting ties with non-believers, returning to a good bible-believing church, a men's group (is it a men's bible study?), being part of Refreshing Hope, and asking for prayers! Please know that you are in my prayers, the Lord is with you every step of the way, you may not feel it at times, but I can assure you, He is!      Lord God, I lift up Ted to you, please fill all of his needs according to your will, goodness, mercy and grace. Please give him the peace that passes all understanding and let him feal your presence, in Jesus name I ask and pray, Amen!

Ted, you did the right I had to remove my family/sibblings from my life and I love them so much. They're what I call toxic peple they don't bring you up the bring you down. They don't care for you they only care what they can get from you. Jesus, I pray for Ted, who broke all chains to start to have wonderful feelings what he did to save his soul. To walk with Jesus, I pray that you give him so much lo ve and peace in his life likenever before. Let him feel like he's reborn into a new life with all hthe new people that walk into his life because they're children of God too. I pray in Jesus, name. Amen <3 Peace, I pray for you and a new life of love. Amen :-)
