"Be cautious! Do not, in the very beginning, analyze your own depravity or unworthiness, or think over your service and work for the Lord, or concentrate on the truth in the Bible, none of which will help your spirit to rise up. What you should think of first is the Lord Himself. Our object is the Lord; our…Continue
"In the Holy Bible, morning is the symbol of the Resurrection as well. When one rises in the morning, everything is fresh, and everywhere it is peaceful and full of vitality. What a beautiful time the morning is! Indeed, it is advisable that we should get up early and present ourselves to the glorious God…Continue
Here is some more on the Morning Watch, from Newman Sze:
Morning is the time God set for meeting His children and distributing spiritual food to them. Why is it a great blessing for the Christian to rise early in the morning and come to God? It is because morning is the time we present ourselves…Continue
This morning I was reading The Morning Watch Guide, by Newman Sze and felt like sharing some of it with you. I always tell girls to practice the morning watch and so this is just a reminder to us all about it's importance:
What we mean by ‘morning watch’ refers to the tranquil period of time when we…Continue
"The one you think about the most, the one you manage your day around, and suffer the most for, that is your true god."

Some stuff has been said about cyber bullies on God girl. I have something to say about that:
What makes a God Girl different from others? Her love. Not for the people who are sweet and nice to her, but to those who are mean and ugly. Jesus commands us to love our enemies and to pray for them.…Continue
“You speak to us, and we will listen; but do not let God speak to us, lest we die.” (Exodus 20:19)
You don't consciously disobey God, you just don't pay attention to Him. God has given you His commands; there they are, but you do not pay any attention to them, not because of wilful disobedience but because you do not love and respect Him. “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” When you realize that you have been ‘disrespecting’ God all the time, you are…Continue
Ever feel depressed and have no idea how to get out of your funk? I used to get all dark, for like weeks on end, til I figured out something, depression is all about my way of thinking, not about my circumstances. Like I wrote in…
“God isn’t unable to help us, and He doesn’t despise us. He is the ruler of all mankind and the lover of His own people. But through suffering He looks into and searches everyone.

In his Book, Man, the Dwelling Place of God, AW Tozer writes about freedom and choices, those things we decide to do or not to do, and how those prove who we are and who we will become. I read this chapter this morning…Continue
Guilt is a painful thing, it eats away at you, even if you aren't aware of it. But God has an answer for your guilt, confession. Confession is good for the soul. It might be the hardest thing you'll ever do, but when you confess you are healed. We all know about confessing to God, and hopefully we all confess…Continue
I used to think that intercessory prayer was only for those gifted in it. I knew a few women who were "prayer warriors" as we called them, but I never thought that applied to me, until I read this article by Charles Spurgeon.…Continue
Today we are working on part three of the morning watch, and that is adoration. When life gets hard, when you lose your focus, when you are distant from God, one of the best ways to get back to truth and back in love is to remember who He is. And as you do this adoration for who He is flows out of…Continue
