Mark 10 New International Version

The Rich and the Kingdom of God

17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honour your father and mother.’[d]

20 “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.”

21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

22 At this the man’s…

Giving our all for the Lord

Christian Devotions

Romans 12:1-2 1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.

This video is a beautiful devotional Song sung by Jane Brill, Sue Johnson and Kayte Harding-Chestney all about time and talents and laying them on the alter.

Ephesians 2 New International Version

Jew and Gentile Reconciled Through Christ

11Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— 12remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. 13But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

14For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, 15by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, 16

Nobody is a whole chain.  Each one is a link.  But take one link and the chain is broken.  We need each other.  You  need someone and someone needs you.  Isolated islands, we’re not.

From Colossians 1:9:  “For this reason, since the day we heard it, we have not ceased praying for you and asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding,”

Bold Journey

Big Sky Buckeye

From 2 Timothy 1:7:  “For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.”

Showing gratitude, filled with praise

Daily worship focuses mind

Setting aside time for prayer

Bold journey’s mercy, never blind


Sharing devout faith with others

Treasured gift from Holy God’s hands

Serving with kindness, filled with joy

Bold journey follows His commands


Witnessing morning, Lord alive!

Death abolished, new life begins

Revealing eternity’s road

Bold journey sheds dark life of sin


Dying with Christ, now born again

Redemption drinks from blessed well

Enduring faithfulness shines bright

Bold journey freed from chains of hell


Teaching others from Lord’s Gospel

Strength received from His daily grace

Suffering shared, soldiers of Christ

Bold journey meets in Heaven’s place

Truthful Tuesday mistaken?

Therapy Bits

Have you ever been mistaken for somebody else?

The short answer? No!

I guess I don’t have any look alikes in the world.

I’ve never been mistaken for someone else.

Now, my PA Frances is always mistaken for another PA named Katie.

People come up to her and they say, hi, Katie!

Its kinda funny actually.

If I was mistaken for someone else, I’d be very shocked.

I think though, that if I was mistaken for someone else, I’d just be polite and engage with the person who was mistaking me.

Missing sweet Nitro!

Therapy Bits

I miss the pitter patter

Of Nitro’s paws

On my hard wood floor

I miss him snuggling up to me

Putting his head in my lap

I miss his high fives

I miss his licks

He always knew just when I needed to be cheered up

I miss his presence in my life

And I miss having a dog

But I don’t want just any dog

The right dog will come along for me I know

At some point

But for now

I remember fondly

Everything about Nitro.

Psalm 149 New International Version

Psalm 149

1Praise the Lord.[a]

Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.

2Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
3Let them praise his name with dancing
and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
4For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he crowns the humble with victory.

5Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor
and sing for joy on their beds.

6May the praise of God be in their mouths
and a double-edged sword in their hands,
7to inflict vengeance on the nations
and punishment on the peoples,
8to bind their kings with fetters,
their nobles with shackles of iron,
9to carry out the sentence written against them—
this is the glory…

Ephesians 6 New International Version

6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honour your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”[a]

Fathers,[b] do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. Obey them not only to win their favour when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free.

And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him.

If as a child you have been brought up in a Christian family or even in some cases non believers home, you will have no doubt been brought up to respect your earthly parents.

I like verse 4 where it gives a warning to parents not to anger or irritate your child but bring them up to know the Lord. I think that has got to be my favourite verse of this passage.

Yes we all can get annoyed with our offspring at times (mine is 27 now and still she drives me up the wall occasionally) but it doesn’t mean to say we love them any less. A year past in October Ii was the proudest man alive as my wee girl got married, though it wasn’t a Church do she was married in a hotel I still had the pleasure of walking her down this long corridor into the room where the wedding was held. I was one proud Dad
