Joyce Meyer in her new book, “Power Words book coverPower Words” published by Faithwords gives us What You Say Can Change Your Life.

From the back cover:   Little changes can make a world of difference.

Simply by choosing to talk more optimistically about your circumstances, you can unlock the power of positivity in your life and achieve the amazing things God has in store for you.

Joyce Meyer, #1 New York Times bestselling author, wants to help you understand how everything is affected by the words you use:  your attitude, your sense of joy, and even your success. She explains that when you align your word with God’s Word, all aspects of your life change for the better. You become more peaceful, hopeful, and positive about your future. Joyce reveals how her own life was transformed by changing the way she spoke, while guiding you through advice and scripture that will help you realize the same result.

The good news is God wants to give you the strength you need to beat fear and live courageously. That’s why He tells you repeatedly throughout the Bible to “fear not” because He is with you.

You don’t have to live under the burden of negativity. POWER WORDS will show you how to achieve limitless joy by learning to speak in agreement with God. Use POWER WORDS to start living His best life for you today!

Let’s think about it for a moment, Jesus told us whatever we said we would have. Think what that means:  we speak bad things then that is what we have. We speak negative things then that is what we have. That means we speak good things then that is what we have. Better to speak the good things then don’t you agree? Joyce Meyer has written this book to help us watch what we speak. Ms. Meyer has divided her teaching into five parts. Part One:  The Power Of Your Words, Part Two:  Changing Your Words Is Part Of Spiritual Growth, Part Three:  Right Words Will Help You Make it Through The Middle, Part Four:  Let Your Words Work For You Not Against You, Part Five:  Your Words Can Determine Your Future.  We all need some positive help to watch what we are saying. This is a great book to do that.  You might want to hold it in a special place on your shelf as you might be referring to it again to refresh yourself with these truths.  This is also a great book to give as gifts to family and friends.  They will think of you every time they put it to use.  I recommend it highly.

Lauraine Snelling in her new book, “Someday Home book coverSomeday Home” published by Faithwords begins the adventure with Lynn Lundberg.

From the back cover:   A heartwarming story that celebrates how life-changing friendships can be found in all seasons of life.

The sprawling lake home Lynn Lundberg built with her husband has been an epicenter of joyful family life, from summer holidays spent around the water, to cookies baked in the kitchen with grandchildren in the fall. But since her husband’s sudden passing two years ago, Lynn has been lost in the grief and solitude she feels without him at home. She doesn’t want to sell the big family place, but she can’t exist there on her own much longer.

After hearing of a new way of living–where single women share responsibilities as housemates–Lynn thinks she’s found the answer to her prayers. Soon she meets two ladies with whom she could begin this journey. Angela Bishop, a successful real estate agent accustomed to the finer things in life, has just been jilted by her husband of twenty-five-years. Judith Rutherford, who has devoted her adulthood to caring for her ailing father, must leave the only home she’s known now that he has passed.

These three women seek a place to grieve, to laugh, and to be renewed. But coming from such differing circumstances, will the new challenges they face undo their plans? Or will they begin a friendship to see them through the years to come in this Someday Home?

This is a book about shared housing. Sounds absolutely boring, doesn’t it? Well let me assure you it is far from boring. Lynn is a recent widow, Angela is a divorcee and Judith is a single woman because her father has just died. They all need someplace to live and Lynn has this big home so. All three are broken, have issues of the heart and desires too. Under the expert direction of Ms. Snelling they learn to meld together as sisters and as friends. These ladies are so real that you forget you are reading and you feel that you are actually hanging out with old friends. There are no car chases, nothing blows up however “Someday Home” is exciting, interesting and will keep you flipping pages as these characters work to deal with their new joys and sorrows.  I enjoyed this book. I am so looking forward to the next book from the pen of the very talented Lauraine Snelling.

Bible Commentary: “Second Word-Salvation” The Days Of Lent

February 15, 2016 at 9:25 am | Posted in Bible Commentary | Leave a comment

“Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”(Luke 23:43 NIV)

“Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along with the criminals–one on his right, the other on his left”(Luke 23:32-33 NIV). In the same way the robbers who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him” Matthew 27:44 NIV). One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Christ? Save yourself and us!” But the other criminal rebuked him.
“Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence?  We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong”. Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom”. Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise”(Luke 23:39-43 NIV).

Two thieves are led away to die on a cross, the possibility exists that these two were associates, robbing together across the countryside. Maybe, if they were alive today they might have made it to the top of the FBI’s most wanted list but they were caught and sentenced to death for their crimes. On the same day that they are crucified another is crucified between them, so one thief is on the right, the other is on the left and Jesus, at the highest point on the hill, is between them. Both of them seem to know Him or they learn of Him as they are dying and both begin to curse Him as they hear the others at their feet cursing Him. The Bible doesn’t tell us how long were they hanging there before this conversation begins but obviously they were there for a while.  Maybe it was an hour, perhaps two but one of the thieves has been watching Jesus as He dies and the thief notices that Jesus is different than he and his buddy. Maybe the thief starts to think that perhaps Jesus is who they say He is or maybe he just gets a revelation whatever the case one thief has a change of heart.

One thief is still using his remaining breath to revile Jesus commanding Him that if He was the Christ to save Himself and them. The thief is guilty, he knows his partner is guilty and still he demands to be saved!  The other thief realizes the intensity of this sin and rebukes his partner. “Don’t you fear God,” he tells him, “since you are under the same sentence”? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve”(Luke 23:40-41 NIV). This thief admits that he is guilty and that he deserves the punishment. Before a person can receive salvation he has to admit that he needs salvation. John tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (I John 1:9 NIV). The thief realizes the purity of Jesus, “But this man has done nothing wrong”. Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom”. Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise”(Luke 23:41-43 NIV).

Child of God – How far apart were these thieves from Jesus five feet, ten feet yet only one received the salvation of God, “Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out your decrees” (Psalm 119:155 NIV).  Only one was able to give Jesus thanks, “I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation” (Psalm 118:21 NIV). Two men, both equals, both the same distance from The Savior yet only one receives Him and is accepted by him. “The LORD has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations” (Psalm 98:2 NIV). All the nations are aware of the righteousness and salvation of our God but not all have received it from Him. We need to shout like the Psalmist, “But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation” (Psalm 13:5 NIV). Then we need to proclaim it to the world!

Our prayer:
Lord, help not to grow cold to the power and loving kindness of your salvation to me. Help me to remember how great the cost of my salvation was for you. And give me a humble heart that I  always be able to admit my sins and repent and ask forgiveness to be cleansed by the power of
your blood. Amen.

If you want to have a personal relationship with Jesus as your Lord and Savior pray: “Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and that out of love for me you willingly sacrificed your life so that I may live. I repent of all my sins and open my heart to you as my Lord and Savior. Amen.

If you prayed this prayer for the first time or if you have any questions please contact us. We would love to hear from you.
