The Bible
by Janie Buck
Date: 01.04.2011
"For the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart."

If you are not reading and studying the Bible it may be because it exposes areas of your life you don't want God in. You can trust Him for He loves you.

The Word is comforting and nourishing to those who believe, yet it is a tool of judgement and execution for those who have not committed themselves to Jesus Christ.

Some people are just going though the motions of believing in Christ. They may be partly persuaded, but inside they are not committed to Him. We need to give our self a check-up to determine where we are spiritually. Is Christ on the throne of your heart? Have you given all of yourself to Him? We will never know true freedom until we ask Him to be on the throne of our life and allow Him to live His life in us. We do this once and then renew our prayer daily because we forget and live "my way."

The Bible is food for our soul, the inner part of our life. We grow strong in faith when we take time to read and study it. If there is a "hunger" in your life that passions and family and friends can't fill maybe you need to spend time with the Lord in His Word, the Bible. You will not regret it. He speaks to us from the page up, that is the pages of the Bible. Read it and memorize verses.

The Psalmist wrote "Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against Thee."
The Bible Zimbabwe Covenant

Topic: Prayers

I am part of the fellowship of the un-ashamed. I have Holy Spirit Power. The dye has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision as been made. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I will not look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still.

My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, sight-walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed vision, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotion, or popularity. I do not have to be right, first, tops, recognized, regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, am uplifted by prayer, and labor by power.

My face is set, my gate is fast, my goal is Heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my Guide reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not give up, shut up, or let go. I will go on until He comes, and work until He stops me.


Praying Effectively for the Lost by Lee E. Thomas
by Janie Buck
Date: 01.27.2011
I need to read this small book about once a year. It keeps me focused upon the fact that Jesus said, "You are my witnesses." Life gets so 'daily' that I get bogged down with my own life and family. Hope you all are not like this. So, I re-read this book because it keeps me on track about being what Jesus said of us - "You are my witnesses."

You can order it from Lee E. Thomas, 2314 Foster Ln., Westlake, LA 70669. Or call your order at (337) 433-8677 or (337) 433-2663.

It is a very good help for all of us to keep us on track about sharing Christ with friends, family, neighbors and even strangers.
The Power of Crying Out by Bill Gothard
by Janie Buck
Date: 01.27.2011
This is a small book that "will bless and inspire you with a deeper understanding of God's grace and power. Bill Gothard's book has reawakened in me a strong desire to cry out to my Lord with passion and expectancy," Dr. Gary Smally.

It is also recommended by ten other outstanding Christian leaders.

It is so easy to get bogged down in our family and problems that we forget that Jesus said, "You are my witness."

I hope and pray you can find a copy of this small book that was published in 2002. The ISBN number is 1-590532_037-8

You will be blessed and learn how to pray for family and friends.
