Spending Time with Jesus

Posted by Amy Spear on February 2, 2017 at 3:05 PM Comments comments (0)
When you think of powerful preaching in the New Testament we naturally think of Jesus. Aside from Jesus we might also think of Paul. What about Peter? He is not one I think of right off-the-bat, after all he was the one who denied Jesus three times and left Him at His most critical moment in life. But listen to these words... "Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: 'Rulers and elders of the people! If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man w... Read Full Post »

When you don't know what to say?

Posted by Amy Spear on August 18, 2016 at 11:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Speechless. Completely speechless.

That is how my prayer time has been lately. Several people I know have gotten some bad news about their health and have asked for my prayers, but all to often I am left without words. My heart cries out to God, but my voice is left silent.

In moments like these I rely on the truth of this verse,

“And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them...

How sharp is your sword?

Posted by Amy Spear on December 31, 2015 at 10:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Have you ever laughed out loud while reading the Bible?

 

With my stomach still growling after dinner tonight, I did just that, laughed out loud!

 

Matthew 4:2 “After He (Jesus) had fasted 40 days and 40 nights He was hungry.”

 

Ok stop right there. Laughing commence!

It was only after the 40 days that you are saying he was hungry!? Forty!? Well, that is proof enough for this food lover to be persuaded that Jesus is Lord!...

Changing my Heart one Dinner Conversation at a time.

Posted by Amy Spear on October 20, 2015 at 12:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Is there a part of your day that you look forward to the most?

My favorite part of the day is dinner time. It’s time for me to catch up with my kids and husband and spend some quality time with each other. Telling stories and sharing in the exciting things that took place in our day brings blessings to my soul.

We play a game called High/Low. Everyone has to share their favorite part of the day, their High, then they share their saddest part of the day, their Low. I started...

I Can't Buzz and Slower

Posted by Amy Spear on September 17, 2015 at 10:30 PM Comments comments (0)

“A bee is never as busy as it seems; it's just that it can't buzz any slower.” Kin Hubbard

Not a week goes by that I don’t complain about being too busy. But I know I’m not alone because the minute I start grumbling, others chime in as if it’s a competition to see who is the busiest. Our society sounds like a swarm of bees needing somewhere to nest and give it a rest!

Rest and renewal are essential; in fact they are a blessing. God set the example for...

The Olive Tree

Posted by Amy Spear on September 10, 2015 at 1:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Did you know there are over 40,000 types of olive trees! Crazy isn’t it!

“The olive tree, Olea europaea, is very hardy: drought-, disease- and fire-resistant, it can live to a great age. Its root system is robust and capable of regenerating the tree even if the above-ground structure is destroyed. The older the olive tree, the broader and more gnarled the trunk becomes. Many olive trees in the groves around the Mediterranean are said to be hundreds of years old, while an ag...

Heed the Warning of the Whisper

Posted by Amy Spear on August 24, 2015 at 10:55 PM Comments comments (0)

5 pages into Lysa Terkeurst’s book “The Best Yes” and I am hooked, and caught all at once. I will be honest reading is a past time I miss. So if I indulge in a book it must captivate me quickly. Well by page 5 this quote grabbed me, “We said yes to so much that we MISSED what I call our “Best Yes” assignments- simply because we didn’t heed the warning in the whispers within the subtle space.”

I am only on page 23 of the book...

Good Ol'Mrs. Howard by Ginger Gann

Posted by Amy Spear on August 24, 2015 at 9:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Good ol’ Mrs. Howard. If you lived outside the city limits, as a child, chances are you rode a bus to school. Even with an age difference of almost seven years, my sister and I knew only one bus driver. You could set your watch by the arrival of Ms. Howard’s bus. For miles the approaching sound of churning gravel, accompanied by a trail of chalk white smoke, predictably announced her impending arrival. Grabbing our sack-nasties and throwing them into our backpack; we ran breathle...

I Wept and Wept

Posted by Amy Spear on August 13, 2015 at 11:45 PM Comments comments (0)


It’s odd the things that capture your attention. But as I read Revelation, I became intrigued by this verse. “I wept and wept because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or look inside.” John had been given an astonishing vision of the throne room of God.

Donald Trump And Straighttalk

Posted by Amy Spear on August 11, 2015 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (0)
According to a survey done my NBC using survey monkey Donald Trump is leading in the polls by 23% for republican nominee. The numbers are shocking all major media outlets. Several talk radio hosts are suggesting that Americans are ready for a candidate who talks plain and doesn't play the game of political correctness. I am not endorsing or critiquing any political candidate. I am more interested if Americans really do want straightforward answers that don't hedge under political pressure. If s... Read Full Post »
