Get Your Praise On!

by bonnernaz

While I’m giving praise to God…it reminds me of some of my reading lately, especially from Anne Graham Lotz, from her book, The Joy of My Heart, in which she writes about getting your praise on. She states that “Praise defeats the enemy! Psalm 22:22 (NKJV) – “I will declare Your name to my brethren; in […]

Psalm 19 – God had it right all along

by bonnernaz

Scripture & Thought Psalm 19:8 – “The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight for living.”   What is the purpose of our existence? Some might say, “Well, it’s to be happy, of course.” In fact, even the Declaration of Independence lists […]

Are You Leaning Into Jesus?

by bonnernaz

This week, I’ve been thinking about what God might be doing in and through us. I mean, how has God been working in your heart and mind while we’ve been having all this “extra” time on our hands, etc? In other words. . .What’s your story of faith? What has God been trying to teach […]

Luke 11 – Daily bread

by bonnernaz

Scripture & Thought Luke 11:3 – “Give us day by day our daily bread.”   It seems sort of funny now, but back in the ‘60s the word bread was a term for money. So if someone said, “You got any bread, man?” that’s what they were talking about. Jesus taught us to pray, “Give […]

Living With Abandon

by bonnernaz

I’ve been reading from Lysa Terkeurst, in her book, Embraced,  and I have felt God tugging at my heart for a deeper walk with Him. I want to share just a piece of what she says . . .   I long to be a woman who follows hard after Jesus. And I’m not talking about a […]

Hebrews 12 – God disciplines those He loves

by bonnernaz

Scripture & Thought Hebrews 12:6 – “For whom the LORD loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom he receives.” Have you ever wondered what the phrase “Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me” means? Let’s remember what David said a few verses earlier: “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1 NKJV). David, a shepherd himself, would […]

Where Do You Find Safety?

by bonnernaz

I was reading this week, from Michele Cushatt, in her writings of “I Am Safe” and I wanted to share some of that with you all. I thought it was very fitting for our world today. She takes it from the scriptures of Ezekiel 34:28 – “They will live in safety, and no one will make them afraid.” […]

Look for the Hope in Each New Morning

by bonnernaz

It’s important that we try to reach out to each other during these days of worry, concern and uncertainty. Staying connected has never been more valuable, or important, than these days! So, let me encourage you that when someone comes to your mind, first of all to pray for them, then give them a call […]

What is Behind that Life-Changing Breath of Wind?

by bonnernaz

I have a story I’d like to share that comes from Carla Grace, that’s rather heartwarming. It reminds us that miracles happen all around us, all the time. We should be thankful! Two years ago in downtown Denver my friend, Scott, and I saw something tiny and insignificant change the world, but no one else […]
