For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have everlasting life.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world through Him might be saved.
John 3:16-17 NKJV
When picking up a basket,
please carry my precious children
through whatever they may face.
Carry my family and friends
wherever You want us to be.
Fill us up, use us,
and may our lives be pleasing –
beautiful before You.
Father God,
please pour out a passion for You and Your Word,
for hiding It deep within our hearts
to spend It as great Treasure throughout the world,
pouring It into the lives of others
so that they might enjoy Its great Power.
So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth:
it shall not return to me void,
but it shall accomplish that which I please,
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Isaiah 55:11 AKJV
Have you ever watched a rabbit fleeing a predator? They move quickly, leaping in zigzag directions, making it difficult to be caught.
May we, our families, our friends…
be vigilant and flee
from any subtle or sinister temptation
seeking to gain our attentions to ensnare us or destroy us.
(James 4:7; 1 Cor. 6:18)

desperately crave You
and Your Word.
Oh, that all would taste and see
that the Lord is very very good!
(Inspiration from Psalm 34:8)

that Jesus Messiah embraced the suffering of a cruel Roman Cross
to free us from the slavery of sin,
and He granted us access to the Presence of God
every moment throughout Eternity.
May messages bearing Truth be planted into fertile human hearts,
yielding abundant faith-filled fruit.
How You long to gather people throughout the world

Your children, into Your Presence
and strengthen their understanding in Your Word daily.

of information and ideas that seek to infect their minds and hearts.

in church services or God-honoring events.
May parents not be bound to doctrines or places or methods,
but willing to plant their families
in churches that will cause their entire family to flourish.

and our greatest delight.

“Well done…”
