Blessed are the Persecuted

Matthew 5:10-12 – “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” We will be persecuted for doing what is right. It is…

Blessed are the Peacemakers

I hate confrontation. I recently deleted my Facebook because of debate with a 'family' member over politics. I was so sick to my stomach over it. It wasn't peaceful in any way. As Christian's we are to be peaceful in everything. We are called to be like Jesus. We will probably be mocked or ridiculed. In return we are to be peaceful. We give up that right to 'justify' behavior that isn't glorifying to Christ.…

Blessed are the Pure in Heart

"Man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart" (1 Samuel 16:7) He knows our heart. The deepest crevices. As I sit here praying. Pondering. I read the twitter feed about Allume. I go to the website to see the line up of speakers. They have been sold out of tickets for awhile. I also heard there aren't any rooms left. He knows my heart Why I long to go again…

Blessed are the Merciful

Blessed are the Merciful. To not have a blind eye to the needy. The poor. The orphans or widows. To have eyes like Jesus. To see what He sees. James 2:13: "For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment To show compassion for another. Both our older boys are merciful. Joey is a Certified Nurses Assistant and Tommy is a wild-land firefighter. Both jobs serve others…

Blessed are Those Who Hunger & Thirst

What you are hungry you thirst for determines where you are in life. Are you hungry for that new car? New iPhone? Desires of the flesh. Or are you hungry for Him? To be with Him? To be more like Him? This is the hunger that this verse is referring to. God will quench the thirst of those that desire Him like a person walking in the Sahara without water. He will fulfill your hunger…

Blessed are the Meek

Definition of MEEK 1 : enduring injury with patience and without resentment : mild 2 : deficient in spirit and courage : submissive 3 : not violent or strong : moderate I was NOT a meek person. Then I read Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit changed my life. It opened my eyes to what affect I was having on my children. The example I was setting when I would lose it. It wasn't…

Blessed are those who Mourn

Blessed are those who Mourn days after mom passed the boys lost a brother. A blog about Hope Blessed are those who Mourn When you are in the pit of grief and mourning He has you! He WILL carry you! He is telling you…

Blessed are the Poor in Spirit

My interpretation of this verse isn't poor as in money poor. I think this means being detached from the world as in 'Be in the world, not of the world.' Being completely void of anything that isn't God. Every bit of you is given up for Him. Love as He loved. Leaving the judging of others for Him to do. For it isn't until we are 'poor' of all other things do we then have…

Beattitudes Series

I've decided to do a series on the Beatitudes. With all of the goings on in the world with this being an election year and looming financial problems of our country, I felt the need to refocus. To find the positive. To step away from it all. To get back to the core of my Christian faith. To BE more like Him. I pray you will be blessed by this series!
