    As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desir...

    He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, 'Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.' Simon answered him, 'Master, we wor...

    He told them this parable. 'Which of you men, if you had one hundred sheep, and lost one of them, wouldn't leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one that was lost, until he found it?' Luke 15:3 WEBWhen I first got serious about serving the Lord Jesus, I was a musician and played ...

Connect To The Vine

  • Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch cant bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:4 WEB

    The ministry of Jesus from the first recorded miracle of turning water into wine, until His resurrection was about three-and-a-half years. He took away the sins of the universe and if we let Him personally, He will takes ours. He changed the world that He lived in.

    We labor each day for so many things when in reality, if we just get in tune with Him, we would accomplish so much more and it would be more fulfilling. Like Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus while Martha labored in the kitchen, sometimes we just need to sit and listen. Often though we are like Martha, making sandwiches that no one ordered and just getting tired and frustrated.

    Jesus is the Vine, and it is our connection with Him that makes our own life bear fruit. I find that when I spend some quiet time with the Lord before I start my day, pray for a few minutes, read a little scripture and listen, that my day goes so much better. It reminds me of why I am doing this and that I am not just struggling alone in life. After a few minutes alone with the Lord, I am much stronger.

    Always include the Lord in Your day. Remember that without Him, you can do nothing of lasting value. Taking just ten minutes to stop, pray and listen, can change your life, those around you, and the world itself.

    Prayer: Father strengthen me today and cover me with Your presence. Draw my heart to You Lord and let me see through Your eyes. Use me and make my life count for Your kingdom, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: Hello all! Just wanted to let you know that we plan to resume the weekly Bible Study starting NEXT week. This week, we are still pretty busy working on details of the website, so thank you for your prayers and understanding!

Tina G I think that sometimes Im Martha and sometimes I'm Mary. When I was younger I was more Martha, trying to keep up appearances, running around trying to keep everyone happy...and yes, what I got was exhausted and empty, with nothing to give anyone.  As I've gotten older and my walk with Jesus matures, I see that being more like Mary benefits me and everyone around me.  Being quiet and listening did not come easy! I found it so hard to turn off my head. With practice my head has quieted down and I feel connected to our heavenly father.

Twila Stierwalt If I don't get my spiritual food daily I start to starve spiritually. I thank God for His word, and how He speaks to me. I thank God for the life He has given me and want to live it to the fullest. Only Joy, peace, comfort, courage and hope comes from my Lord Jesus Christ.

Carol Pady I begin everyday with coffee and Jesus.  Coffee with caffeine to wake me physically and God's word and devotions to wake me spiritually. I can live without the coffee but I can't live without God's word!

Kathy Banfield
Kathy Banfield As my "sig line" says, "A day hemmed in prayer will never unravel"--and it's so true! One day I was in a rush to catch an early bus, and didn't have time to pray--well, I ended up getting on the wrong bus, encountering a dead cat which upset me terribly, and in short, my whole day unraveled before it even began.I'm usually awake much earlier than anyone else in my house, so prayer time is usually not an issue. And I'll especially need it this week! Thanks and blessings, Kathy

Michael Griffin
Michael Griffin Another awesome devotional, Pastor! thank you so much for keeping us all encouraged. we MUST let Him lead the way. If we would just trust in Him, everything else lines up as He would have it in our lives. I've been amazed at how he has changed situations, not only in My life, but those around me as well, that have been "watching" me! Praise His holy name!!!

Liesel  aka  Lisa Wardle
Liesel aka Lisa Wardle Amen and Amen! I'm and always have been such a hyper person, always trying to be busy doing things. This devotional was a direct message from the Hl. Spirit, and to be more in tune with my Lord and Savior I'll have to slow down, listen and connect, and trust my Lord to take care of things!!! He knows what we need better than we do!!! Praise the Lord, and thank you for your message and your ministry!!!

Deleted Member Amen, we can get more accomplished in our lives by putting Jesus first, I too have to slow down and sit and listen to His still small voice, that I might would miss, if I didn't allow myself to slow down and hear what Jesus has for me.

Deng Tembreza
Deng Tembreza My first prayer for the morning before I get is Goodmorning LORD GOD.  And the rest of my prayers goes on for my day. I read the RHM devotional daily before the day ends.  Although not the first thing in the morning I never failed to read it though. Thank you Pastor Dion for all your devotional messages.  They are all food for my soul.
