When I began high school, my parents gifted me a new Living Bible with instruction to read a scripture every day.
Psalm 42:1 As the deer pants for water, so I long for you, O God, soon became my favorite verse. My life verse. It is my desire to share God's Word with others, enlightening their journey to freedom in Christ.

Have you ever thought bearing fruit was all about winning souls for Christ? Have you failed miserably at that? I have.
This study finds the Fruit of the Spirit throughout the New Testament. Jesus talked about it and the apostle Paul talked about it.
Bearing this fruit enables you to bear the fruit of winning souls for Christ.
My goal is to touch your heart, encourage and challenge you in your walk with the Lord. I pray these devotions bless you as you read them.

Psalm 119 is an acrostic broken down into twenty-two sections, blocked by the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Armed with my Bible and Strong's Concordance along with several translations of the Word of God, I began to pour over David's prayers in Psalm 119 choosing the translation that best fit the original Hebrew meaning of the text. This devotional book breaks the twenty-two sections down into recipes for life made from easy steps to follow, using the ingredients below to stir into your life, mixing together God’s perfect plan for your life. As meals are divided into courses, the appetizer, salad, main course and dessert, these twenty-two devotions, or recipes are divided into five courses. Wisdom, repentance, commitment, obedience and trust are the five courses in which we can find nourishment for our spirit and our soul. ©judy lavine

Are you having a test? A challenge? Is your faith under pressure? You say, “I know who I believe in, but things are hard, I need out of this mess! If only I could get out of this mess, I could move forward with God, be what I need to be for Him, do His work, but I’m stuck, trapped, I can’t get out! I can’t do what I’m supposed to do because I’m trapped here.”
In James 1:3, the Message Bible says that when we are under pressure, our “faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors.” (MSG Peterson, 1993) The next verse goes on to instruct us to let pressure do its work so we will become mature and developed. The King James Bible says to let patience have its perfect (complete) work that we will be perfect (complete) and entire (whole), wanting (lacking) nothing. ©judy lavine
