7 Prayers For A Solid Marriage – 30 Happy Years

 

 

 

 

This past August we were married 30 years…Happy Anniversary to us!! 🙂

 

 

30 years sure is a long time, and is a milestone. Have we had many disagreements? Have we hurt each other? Have there been angry moments? Have we ever went to bed mad at each other?

Sure we have! What marriage DON’T have disagreements?! None that I know of. 😉

It takes a lot of work, trust and prayer to make a marriage work and last. We have that! Not many marriages last 30 years, or even 20 or less!

I was reading through the scriptures this morning and found 7 of them for a happy marriage. I’d like to share them with you =)

Father, I plead that we would speak the truth in love to each other, honestly and openly sharing our feelings with each other

Ephesians 4:15, 25

God, I plead that You would give us wisdom and compassion in dealing with our in-laws

Matthew 5:7

Father, I ask You to protect our marriage from the attacks of Satan. Deliver us from his evil, destructive plans

1 Peter 5:8

Father, help us to discern and deal with those things that hinder and hurt our relationship

Psalm 139:23-24

I pray that we would be kind and tenderhearted to one another, forgiving one another even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven us

Ephesians 4:32

God, create within us a hunger for each other. Let us be satisfied with one another

Proverbs 5:19-20

Father, I plead that we would be patient with each other in all the circumstances of life

1 Corinthians 13:4

That last one is a big one!! LOL 😉

 

 

Lord, I thank You for giving me the man You chose for me! He is a good man, hard working, and trustworthy. I also thank You Lord for giving me our son and grandson! 🙂

What an awesome, loving family I have…How did I get so lucky??! Only God knows. 😉

 

We are going on vacation to Florida in December to celebrate these 30 years!

This is an inspiring true story and an awesome article about a Call Center Rep and Prayer Partner @ Joyce Meyer Ministries. I thought maybe you all would enjoy! 🙂

By: Shirley Green

Meet William J. Howell and family of Red Bud, IL who has a vision so big and beautiful that it warms the heart. Will wears many hats these days as a husband, father, entrepreneur and prayer partner at Joyce Meyer Ministries in Fenton, Missouri.

First, the initial step to opening the “The Chipped Mug” (TCM) in Red Bud, Illinois is the website where everyone can visit and make purchases to help fund the future site of “TCM”. The Chipped Mug was first conceived in the mind and heart of William J. Howell when he was still single and a college student and saw a coffee shop called the “Ugly Mug”. He noticed how people loved to hang out at “The Ugly Mug” which consequently became the local gathering place, a kind of piazza where people can mingle and socialize.

Next, Will relocated to St. Louis, MO to get a job and a month later, he visited the popular website called E harmony.com where he found his wife, Sara. Meeting Sara was one of the best things that happened to Will because Sara is extremely supportive and upbeat; let’s just say meeting Sara was a “good thing” for him. The two married in less than a year of their courtship and remain committed to each other and to the vision of TCM. Now, they have 3 beautiful girls whose names are: Maleah, 4 years old; Joanna, 3 years old & Olivia who is their 1 year old. Periodically over the years, Will’s aspirations to open TCM coffee house repeatedly resurfaced in his heart and mind.

Actually, Will isn’t one who likes change nor easily yields to the propensity to change; change is not a normal part of his character, however, his dream to open the coffee house in Red Bud, IL continues to be at the forefront of his heart. He is pursuing the dream strategically and wholeheartedly which will bring about a great change for his family as well as their community.

At this present time, Will travels about 100 miles per day from his home in Red Bud, IL to Joyce Meyer Ministries in Fenton, MO where he is employed as a Call Center Representative and Prayer Partner. It’s very important and innate for Will to help make a difference in the lives of people; by working at the Ministry, the difference he makes touches and changes lives worldwide every day.

Moreover, Will and Sara believe in living a debt-free lifestyle and currently, every business transaction on behalf of TCM is done through their online web store (TheChippedMug.Net) with no overhead dollars to pay; in a few years, their home will be paid off too.

The concept behind opening TCM has already been branded and includes their quote, “Changing the world 1 cup of coffee at a time.” The atmosphere at TCM will be one of excitement and the endeavor for the ambiance of the business will be a loving and family oriented social gathering place, the same ambiance Will remembers about The Ugly Mug. Furthermore, this will be a great tourist attraction for the City of Red Bud, IL to help generate more revenue and to gain national notoriety for the town, which means more jobs, which is a good thing, especially in our present economy. TCM plans to incorporate live entertainment, serve tasty desserts and breads from the in-house bakery while at the same time, starting and maintaining a family business that can be handed down to their children and their grandchildren.

From an early age, entrepreneurism was always in Will’s heart like his grandpa who also owned his own business. The name “The Chipped Mug” comes from a passage of Scripture in Jeremiah 18:4-6 where it talks about “I have declared thee as the potter, he made our imperfections as perfect.” This means even with our imperfections, we can still be very useful.

Are Will and Sara trying to get rich from “The Chipped Mug”? In fact, their philosophy and concept is that any excess proceeds generated by TCM are given away to help others. TCM is a “for-profit” family business but operates as a not-for-profit company undertaking many philanthropic projects. Their plans are to purchase an in-town building in Red Bud, IL where their family lives close and owns the coffee house and bakery. Sara and her mom will run the day-to-day tasks of the bakery which will be located inside TCM coffee house. The location the couple has chosen will be in close proximity to their home, the local college, hospital, park and area bank.

Currently Will and Sara willingly support other organizations that are like minded and maintain a core value to reach out to help others. Some of these organizations the family supports include organizations like “Chocolate and the Red Shoe” which empowers women to dream big and teaches them practical ways to accomplish their goals; “Restoration A.S.A.P.” provides relief to those in need of health care through a “Doc On The Block” program offered to those who cannot afford health care & a “Humanitarian Outreach” called Project58.org which helps the people in Haiti & Guatemala build homes and fund other local needs. Also, Will looks forward to the days when he can also support other organizations like the YMCA who regularly goes out into the community to help others.

Mark Batterson, who has become one of the most important people to Will and Sara is a well-known Pastor and author who owns a coffeehouse based in Washington, DC which coins itself as the modern “well” which was a common meeting place in Jewish history. In addition, The National Community Church pastored by Mark Batterson is one of the fastest growing, influential churches in the DC area. Pastor Mark Batterson is also the author of book titles like “The Circle Maker” and “In the Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day”. Since 2009, Pastor Mark Batterson has offered support and information about owning a coffee shop to Will and Sara and always welcomes their inquiries. As you can see, Will & Sara surrounds themselves with a company of shakers and movers who are touching lives locally, nationally and internationally.

In addition, William J. Howell is the Author of his own book entitled “Visual Impairment” and it speaks to those who need help finding their purpose and encourages them to never giving up on their dreams. “Visual Impairment” can be purchased on Amazon.com for $12 and most likely, the book may soon become available to Kindle readers. Still, this isn’t the only title that will hit the shelves; there are more titles by Will in the making yet to be published.

Will’s greatest inspiration of course is his beautiful wife, Sara. “She gives me the encouragement to accomplish whatever needs to be done”; “Sara believes in me completely and she is beside me 100%.” On the other hand, Sara says, “I can’t wait until the day when work for Will is right around the corner from our home rather than 100 miles away.” Sara is definitely a constant motivation to Will and to the dream they have to begin their lives together working side-by-side in their very own family business. Meanwhile, they continue to pour love and support into each other as the dream comes closer to becoming a reality.

ADVICE from Will and Sara: “NEVER GIVE UP YOUR DREAM!” “Listen to those who embrace your dream who will pray for you and support the dream with encouragement as well as offer donations to see the cause come to pass. Sometimes you may have to face opposition or experience trying times with finances to fund the dream but God’s grace is amazing, so never give up.”

In closing, to donate to “The Chipped Mug” coffee house, please visit TheChippedMug.Net where they offer over 100 unique variations of coffee mugs to be purchased individually or to be included in the gift basket of your choice to help generate revenue. Coffee mugs can be purchased for as little as $5 each plus the costs for shipping and handling. Moreover, gift baskets may be purchased in every season for every reason starting at $15 and includes an easy, do-it-yourself kit with the recipe for a basic brownie or cookie mix that may require a stick of butter or vanilla extract, (something we already have in our kitchens) depending on the recipe in the kit chosen. Next, bake the delicious dessert mix from the kit in the oven then pull out a fresh, delicious dessert your family and friends will enjoy! All the jars, coffee mugs & baskets are reusable and all the proceeds generated from the website will help to build “The Chipped Mug” coffee house.

God’s Cake and Sharing Scriptures For The Week

 

 

 

 

 

My Uncle from California sent this to me through email. It’s awesome! 🙂

God’s Cake…

 

This is about the best thing I’ve ever read as an explanation

 

 

Sometimes we wonder, ‘What did I do to deserve this?’ or ‘Why did God have to do this to me?’ Here is a wonderful explanation! A daughter is telling her Mother how everything is going wrong, she’s failing algebra, her boyfriend broke up with her and her best friend is moving away.


Meanwhile, her Mother is baking a cake and asks her daughter if she would like a snack, and the daughter says, ‘Absolutely Mom, I love your cake.
‘Here, have some cooking oil,’ her Mother offers.
‘Yuck’ says her daughter.
‘How about a couple raw eggs?’ ‘Gross, Mom!’
‘Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?’
‘Mom, those are all yucky!’

To which the mother replies: ‘Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves. But when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!

‘God works the same way. Many times we wonder why He would let us go through such bad and difficult times. But God knows that when He puts these things all in His order, they always work for good! We just have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all make something wonderful!

God is crazy about you. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning. Whenever you want to talk, He’ll listen. He can live anywhere in the universe, and He chose your heart.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!

 

——————————————————–

 

There are many that beg God to tell them WHY they have to go through specific things and many trials. Do you believe all things happen for a reason? I do!

God has everything planned out and knows all things before we do. For me, that is so very powerful. 😉

Various trials and tribulations all make us much stronger than we ever, ever thought possible! They indeed make US the people we are today, having gone through this or that.

It may be sickness, it may be losing loved ones, it may even be having to go through life homeless…it could be MANY things. However, God knows before we do what lies ahead in our future.

This morning I searched for trials and tribulations in the scriptures…this is what I found. 😉

James 1:12

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.

Romans 12:12

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

Romans 8:28

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Acts 14:22

Strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God

Philippians 4:6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Job 5:19
He will deliver you from six troubles; in seven no evil shall touch you

Hebrews 2

For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering.

Ephesians 1:11

In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will,

Hebrews 11:17

By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was in the act of offering up his only son

Teach a Child to Pray – Guest Post

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By: Lori Lauth

 

 

Prayer is a wonderful part of Christian life. We get the opportunity to have a conversation with God. We can have this time with him as often as we want.


 

 

As a child, my mother was the one that influenced my prayer life. In fact, she used to take me to some prayer meetings with her. I learned so much by being around the seasoned Christians. They would often pray over me and teach me scripture. I learned how to pray and then wait to hear that still small voice of the Lord.

With my children, we have prayer time everyday on the way to school. At first they would ask Jesus to bless Barbie but as the years have gone by they now pray for the school, our community, the country and our president. I have taught them the beauty of being quiet and waiting for that still small voice just like my mom and others taught me.

I hope you will take some time to pray with the children in your life. Teach them prayer is just a conversation. Show them by example and then let them have a turn even if they ask the Lord to bless Barbie. Remember they are learning and it’s a progression.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 KJV

 

 

Has this article blessed you? Maybe it’s reminded you to hang out with a child and talk about Jesus. Would you share a comment below? We would love to hear from you!

Sharing a Blog Post – Weekly Bible Scriptures

 

 

 

Clip Art From

 

 

Christian Clip Art

 

 

I ran onto a blog post today that really hit home for me, and wanted to share it with you. It has to do with our spiritual selfs, emotions, and our well being. 😉

If you come here often and If you’ve read many of my posts here on the blog, you will find that I’m a really emotional person that also suffers from depression and anxiety. I try to open my Bible and read a chapter or two every day. However, I miss a day here and there. I just get caught up in my everyday life and my work online. Does that sound like a worthy excuse? I don’t think so. 😉

Usually I try to read my Bible first thing in the mornings, after my workouts. Well, If I’ve got something that’s pressing me and stressing me out that needs to be done soon that particular day, I sometimes skip reading. 🙁 NOT a good thing. As the Word gets me going on a positive note for a positive start to my day. I definitely need to work on that! 🙂


Also, Lara talks about being cautious about what you think about. This is SO true, we all need to stop and think about (what we think about). Sounds a bit confusing, but what we think about sets our moods and outlook on life. Also, Lara goes on to explain that we all need to set our minds on God

(ref. Colossians 3:2, Romans 12:2)

Lara also talks about paying attention to what we listen to. This is so very important. Faith comes by hearing!

(ref. Romans 10:17, James 1:22)

And lastly, this is one of the things that hit home for me. Watch what you say Have you ever said something on impulse without thinking of other’s feelings and also the consequences? I seem to do this often. 🙁 That’s something else I need to work on. 😉

From Lara’s blog post : Think BEFORE you speak. REPLACE bad thoughts with what is good, worthy of praise and honorable. And this brings us to the scripture…

Proverbs 18:21

Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Weekly Scriptures Arguing and Fighting – Forgiveness

 

 

 

Good afternoon, 🙂

 

Hey we all argue once in awhile, and some of us call it fighting. It’s nature to not agree on everything. We are all made unique with our own opinions and feelings. That is what makes us all interesting. If we were all the same with the same opinions, feelings, and views about everyday life and the world around us, then this world would be quite a boring place, wouldn’t you think?

 

So with that said, there will always be arguements and various unique opinions and thoughts. We are all human and not the same; we are all unique.

 

What does the Bible say about arguing and fighting??

 

Matthew 18:15

If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.

Matthew 12:36-37

I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned

Thessalonians 5:9

For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ

Proverbs 28:25

A greedy man stirs up strife, but the one who trusts in the Lord will be enriched

Psalm 144:1

Of David. Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle

1 John 4:1

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world

 

Some scriptures on forgiveness

 

Psalm 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise

Psalm 86:4-5 Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.

Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

 Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.

Psalm 103:8-12 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

 

Accept the ever standing invitation from Jesus for forgiveness of all sins through His blood!

 

Hope you all have a great week! 🙂

 

Lord Show Us The Way – Ask and Listen – Guest Post – Scriptures For The Week

 

 

 

 

 

 

By: Lori Lauth

 

 

 

 

Recently during a morning of running errands, I made a quick pit stop for a cup of coffee. As I got back in the car, I realized getting back into the flow of traffic in the direction I needed was going to be a challenge. As I got into the car I prayed silently for God to show me a way so that I didn’t have to make a bunch of u-turns in order to get back on my route.

Just as I started driving I saw a car driving in the direction I needed to go and I started to follow. I ended up on a small access road that took me to a red light that contained a turn arrow. Praise the Lord! I had never seen this road before but it had been there all along.

Sometimes we get so turned around by life when we look at the big picture and forget to remember that we have a good shepherd that guides us. All we have to do is ask and listen. Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.

(Isaiah 30:20 NKJV)

May our hearts cry out to the Lord to show us the way today. He is wanting to help and lead every step of the way. 😉

May you have a great week! =)

Weekly Scriptures – The Model Prayer

 

 

 

I opened my Bible this morning and there it was Matthew Chapter 6…He wanted me to read the whole chapter 😉

 

Includes the scriptures of the model prayer: Matthew 6:9-15

Within The Model Prayer Jesus taught his disciples that when they pray, what motive and attitude they must possess

1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

I hope you all have a blessed week! =)

How a small-town experience and a love of scrapbooking inspired a Christian fiction series.

 

By Courtney Walsh

 

 

A couple of years ago, some very sweet friends gifted us with a long weekend in their cottage in a place much like Sweethaven. A com­munity where the houses are passed down through the generations, rich with history and filled with stories. I began to imagine the women of this small town scrapbooking together while the summer sun waned and their children caught lightning bugs.

 

 

Suddenly, I wanted to live in this place. With these women. And I wanted to uncover their secrets.

Remembering Mom and Bible Scriptures For The Week

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I opened up my Bible yesterday morning and found my Mother’s memorial prayer card…I have not read that in a long time. =)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is what it says on the back…

 

 

 

Safely Home

 

 

I am home in heaven, dear ones,
Oh so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty,
In this everlasting light.

 

All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;

I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in heaven at last.

 

There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth;
You shall rest in God’s own land.

 

When that work is completed;
He will gently call you Home:
Oh, the rapture of that meeting;
Oh, the joy to see you come!

 

🙂

 

Here is Mom’s favorite Bible scripture…

 

 

 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

 

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

 

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

 

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

 

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

 

Psalm 23

Matt 8:11

 

 

And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God
