Be Determined!







To follow God's leading you must have confidence that:

  • He has a definite plan for your life;
  • you are capable of hearing from Him;
  • and whatever He asks of you, He will enable you to do!

Once you've heard from God, be resolute!

Things worth having never come easy. If you find yourself weakening, ask God for determination and He will impart it to you through His Spirit.

Don't go in a different direction because of worry, or discouragement, or the sentiments of others.

I’m learning what resolve means as I am studying the life of Daniel.

Godliness is never accidental, neither victory coincidental.  Both stem from up front daily resolve.

(Beth Moore)


Please join us at the Café for more incredible words of hope and encouragement today!


Thought I would like up to this meme as well.

Heavenly Father, Such beautiful JOY and confidence as we follow You! Thank You for this beautiful delight we see here!

I'm so thankful that I am confident! Thank You Lord for Susan and her many delights and learnings that she willingly shares so well! Continue to pour out Your blessings on her and hers so that neither victory nor Godliness are coincidental or accidental... but part of You plan for her. Help us to be determined and resolute by Your Spirit in You always... seeking You more!!!

Ohhh Lord... it is such a JOYFUL day when so many are seeking You and singing praises! Thank You for Toia's new song that joins with Amydeanne's.

Let us allow You to put a new song in our hearts and from our mouths will flow continual praises! Yo are an awesome God!

I'm so glad that we can grab hold of our new song and send the enemy to tremble and quake in fear of You. Love You Lord and thank You for Your love for Toia and each of us!

Love, peace and God's grace and blessings Susan...

Praying right now.
Psalms 9:9-10 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

Thank you, Susan, for these wonderful encouraging words and the Sweet Scripture - not to mention the adorable photo! And isn't that Beth Moore Bible Study one of the best Bible studies!!! I did that using the audio mp3 a while back as I would drive from home to babysitting grandchildren and was so encouraged! Have a sweet day!!! :)

Amazing and comforting words. Praying!
John 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Praying for Rick's recovery!
Know that I'm here praying!
Psalms 94:17-19, 22 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up. In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul...But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.

My pal really wants to read a tale I wrote within a video on her Youtube channel.
I'm concerned that my story may be stolen by some one, and also have them claim it as their own, not that I think this really is adequate for anyone to want to steal it. How likely do you think it might be that my story will be plagiarized? Can there be anything Youtube does to attempt to stop plagiarism?.

The number of mobile phones has risen sharply since the early 1980s, with
nearly 5 billion handsets in use today, prompting lengthy debate about their potential link to the
main types of brain tumor, glioma and meningioma.

Sergej Ostrumow, an employee at Digital One,told
the Times: This problem is caused by the F. B. I., not our
company." It's only $35/year after a free use period, but with the code below it can save you $5 off their normal price. Their free trial sold me on it after using it on the course! All the information about features, courses, and detailed information is online. In my case, at least, when it comes to receiving an unwanted dinnertime phone call, readers don't have to worry. When I want to tell my readers about my new novel, the last thing I'm going to do is call them up to talk on the phone.
