Take the Path of Life

“Show me the path of life…” Psalm 16:11 God knows exactly what is going on in your world.  He has provided everything you need to live during these times; and actually He has provided a way for you to live in peace even during times of trouble. Find the path of life, the peace of God.  Once you find the path of life, stay there, don’t let your heart be troubled.  Stop allowing yourself stray off the path, lost and fearful. You have a choice; you simple stay on the path. You have a choice daily; so don’t allow your […]

Embracing Spiritual Maturity

by Denise Boggs
“Not only so, but we[a] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.” Romans 5:3-4  (NIV) Fulfilling the call of God on your life will require spiritual maturity.  The Bible offers us many wonderful examples where God led His child through situations to teach them, and bring them to a more spiritual mature place.  It was necessary in order to prepare them for the work they had before them.

A Sure Sign of Maturity

by Denise Boggs
“…When he (Moses) had grown to maturity…” Hebrews 11:24 There is a day in all of our lives when we come to a crossroad.  We make a choice that signifies we have come into maturity.

You Have a Choice

by Denise Boggs
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”   Psalm 1:1 Every day of our life we make hundreds of choices and each of those choices will produce an outcome.  For instance: we make a choice what foods we eat in the morning for breakfast; nutritious or unhealthy, we choose whether we will go to work or stay home and watch TV all day, and we choose whether we will ride a bike or a car on the highway to […]

God Calls for A Time of Rest

by Denise Boggs
“Come unto me all who are weak and heavy laden and I will give you rest.”   Matthew 11:28 Are you tired and weak from the busyness of life?  Are you tired from the heavy burdens you are carrying?  The Lord is calling you to come to Him and rest awhile. The only way you can truly rest is by laying your burdens down.  Lay them down and let Him tell you what He wants you to pick back up. God set forth times of rest from the beginning.  Even when everything He created was good, He didn’t just keep going.  […]
