The Loving Kindness of our God

by Denise Boggs
“The Lord will command his loving kindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me …” Psalm 42:8 At night you can sleep in peace because you know God is already working things out for tomorrow. The Lord actually commands His loving kindness to be accomplished, so you will receive all His blessings. He commands it. He is ext ending His loving kindness towards you. This is His promise and you can rest in His promises. Look for it, His loving kindness will show up visibly. Deut.28:8 says, “the Lord shall command the blessings upon […]

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 […]

No matter what the circumstances are we must focus on the goodness of the Lord. If we look at our circumstances and ‘give in to our feelings’ we will sink […]

Finding a Safe Place

by Denise Boggs
  “Create in me a pure heart, Oh god and renew a right spirit within me.”  Psalm 51:10 There was a time in my life that I needed a safe place for God to do open heart surgery. My heart was broken and as hard as I tried, I could not recover. During that time, well-meaning friends said things like, “Can’t you snap out of it and just get over it?” No, it wasn’t that easy. I needed someone safe to understand what I was going through- to listen to how I was hurting and help me release the pain. […]

You Are Chosen and Have Purpose

by Denise Boggs
“He hath chosen us in Him…” Eph 1:4 Have you ever thought about what it really means to be chosen by God?  Do you remember an event or a series of events when it became clear that you were chosen?  Did you feel God’s sovereign hand protecting and guiding you? You have been chosen to be God’s child so you can be His representative on the earth. Paul said in Ephesians 1:5, that He planned for us to be adopted and revealed as His own children. This is our identity and purpose in one verse. Once you discover your identity […]
