“Don’t forget the emeralds that emanate esteem, earnest commitment, encouragement and endurance. Adorn your crown with amethysts of admiration, affection, affirmation, approval, appreciation and attentiveness.”

– NANCY CAMPBELL

Proverbs 12:4: “A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.”

Genesis 2:18: “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, but when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. - James 1:12

 

 Some people say life is hard. I think it's better to say that life can be hard or better still, life is made up of difficulties and challenges. In the words of C.S. lewis hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.

 

Now the biggest problem people have is that they hope for a life without pr

So what in the world is faith? Faith is simply acting like God is telling the truth. It's acting like it is so, even when it's not so, in order that it might be so, simply because God said so. And when we learn to move with our feet in faith based on what God has revealed we can see his power change our circumstances.

You know if we go back to Acts Chapter 16: here's where we see you know Paul takes Timothy under his wing in Acts. Chapter 16,

 

And then later in Acts, Chapter 16, we're going to see Paul and Silas are actually going to go to jail, so paul and silas were wrongfully accused. They were there preaching the word to Roman citizens. Gentiles were giving their hearts to the Lord. They were Receiving Christ as their Lord and savior, and because of this they were giving up all these false idols. So the

One of the things that really excites me about 1 Timithy in the Bible
is that Paul is writing a letter to Timothy and, in this letter, he's really given some instructions of what does it look like to have godly character right? What does godly character for a leader really look like, and another thing that I really like about this book, is that I also think that paul does a really good job of connecting these godly characteristics with the gospel message and really pointing out and showing us th

“It should come as no huge surprise that the secular world is confused and off-base about the identity and calling of women. But what I find distressing is the extent to which (this) has taken hold even within the evangelical world. We see the fruit of that revolution as prominent Christian speakers, authors, and leaders promote an agenda, whether subtly or overtly, that encourages women to define and discover their worth in the workplace, in society, or at church, while minimizing (or even

How many people have you shared the good news of your salvation with? Do you want others to be saved? If receiving Christ as your saviour is wonderful, you will want other people to have Him too as their saviour too. Surely, the joy of salvation, you shouldn't keep to yourself alone. This article encourages you to reach out and win souls for Christ.

What do you expect from the word of God? Your expectation is a function of what you know and understand of God's word. And the word of God delivers to you what you expect from it; for your expectation shall not be cut off. Therefore, increase your expectation of the word of God to increase what it delivers to you.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says on Proverbs 12:4: “A wife of noble character is like a crown on her husband’s head, that is, her strength of character (ḥayil is lit., “strength”) makes her husband pro

Practice Non-Random Acts of Kindness
“Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see” (Anonymous).

You have probably seen the bumper sticker that reads, “Practice Random Acts of Kindness.” The point is that acts of kindness will neutralize random acts of violence. Biblically, acts of kindness are not meant to be random, but via the Holy Spirit, they are to be a way of life (Galatians 5:22).

“Kindness” has been defined as “benevolence in action.” It is basic

"Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went to a solitary place, where He prayed." Mark 1:35

My daily practice has been to follow what Jesus modeled; rising early, in a darkened, quiet, nurturing relationship with Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit.

Solitude, in the union of holy presence, fills me with renewal and spiritual vigor.

I have discovered my days flow smoother in maintaining this habit, which has become my most importan

Hey men, I'm here to talk to you today and just challenge you a little bit from the Word of God. The Bible tells us in Micah  6:8

It says...

 

He has told you, mortal one, what is good;

And what does the Lord require of you

But to do justice, to love [a]kindness,

And to walk [b]humbly with your God?

 

Now I want to look at this first part where it says to do justly. What does that mean and as a man, what Does that mean to for us? To me to do justly means to do what is right to do what's right in

Daily Devotional: Never Give Up

Welcome to today's encouragement. Today's reading titled never give up was written by Patricia Rabin. Time went by. War came in that's how Bishop Semi-Nego of the Kaliko people of south sudan described delays in his church's long struggle to get the Bible in their own language. Not one word in fact had ever been printed in the Calico language. Decades earlier Bishop Nego's grandfather had courageously started a bible translation project, but war and unrest kept halting the effort.

 

Yet, despite

We don't say ``, I shall not want'', because we have everything we desire. We say it because God is fulling every void in our life with Himself. I want to share some thoughts on one of the most popular verses in the Bible. Psalm. 23:1, The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want Psalm 23:1 ESV. Through this simple illustration of God being our Shepherd we see how God tenderly takes care to provide, guide and protect us.

 

Interestingly enough, this Psalm was written by King David, who was once a s

Romans 8:26–27 Do you ever struggle with knowing what to pray for? Sometimes we can think our prayers are too self-centered, too vague, or not important enough to present to our big God. And then there are times when we just don’t know what to say at all. This is not a reason to be frustrated, embarrassed, or worried. Instead it’s a reminder of a profound truth about prayer—you never do it alone. Watch today’s video for encouragement about your prayer life!

Daily Devotions for Men - Attitude

I want to begin with Psalms 32:2

 

New American Standard Bible

How blessed is a person whose guilt the Lord does not take into account,And in whose spirit there is no deceit!

 

The word “spirit here is the Hebrew word “ruach”, which means spirit, breath demon, spirit, spirit of God. It also means mental disposition, and in here we can accurately translate an attitude. Mental disposition is attitude. The word attitude is not found in the Bible, but we understand this concept. Let me read it to yo
