    At the same time my understanding returned to me; and for the glory of my kingdom, my majesty and brightness returned to me. My counselors and my lords sought me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent greatness was added to me. Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King ...

    After a little while again those who stood by said to Peter, "You truly are one of them, for you are a Galilean, and your speech shows it." But he began to curse, and to swear, "I don't know this man of whom you speak!" The rooster crowed the second time. Peter remembered the word, how that Jesus sa...

    We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 WEB.As I writhed in pain in the chair, the dentist wrestled on with the split tooth. It was very painful, and I didn't want him to touch it, let alone tug on it like ...

Scary Movies

  • For this cause, I remind you that you should stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God didn't give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:6-7 WEB.

    Have you ever felt a sense of dread come over you? Have you been afraid of that monster in the closet or under the bed? My older brother, who had a driver's license, was a serious horror movie fan. I must have seen every scary movie that was released while growing up. Don't let that happen to your children. For years I paid the price, and I still despise them today. We saw so many they became comical. Why would someone do that with a chainsaw?

    After I started drawing closer to God, He revealed to me that most of our fears are rooted in not trusting Him. Though it can be a very powerful enemy to overcome, He is the ultimate power. Faith understands that God will protect you. Fear is believing that He will not.

    Often it's because we feel we have let Him down. That God is mad at us, and we may get punished. Yet, God removes our past sins away from us just as if they never happened. If you grew up like I did and your brain was trained to think a certain way, it could take a while to retrain your thought patterns. I had to memorize this verse and say it often. "For God didn't give us a spirit of fear."

    God's Holy Spirit gives us power, love, and a sound, disciplined mind. Which is the complete opposite of fear and panic. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you (James 4:7). Let your mind be renewed, and take on the mind of Christ.

    If God is for us, who can stand against us? Think positive and don't dwell on what may happen because it may not. Put your trust in Him, and don't try and work it all out in your mind. God knows the end from the beginning. He is well able to prepare you for what is coming. Don't be afraid.

    Don't you be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you. Yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness. (Isaiah 41:10 WEB).

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for being there for me. Please remove the fear from my life and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Let me walk in faith and power and be a part of what You are doing on this earth today. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: For those participating in the Creation Photography weekly themes, here is this week's challenge from group leader, Dianna Wyles: Genesis 8:22 'As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.' ~ This week we are kicking off the summer with some reflective fun! 'Reflections of Summer' will be our next fun-loving theme and is wide open for some creative interpretation, so do get creative! My photos this week are mostly reflections in water but I did throw in a memory reflection or two as well. So many ways to express the meaning of reflection. The sky's the limit, show us what you got! Have a fantastic week y'all, God bless! ~ Here is the link: Creation Photographers
