Jeremiah 29: 11: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” This was my husband’s favorite verse of Scripture.

Since my husband passed in January I feel like a lost sheep at times.

Woman of the Most High God “Where are the signs that follow believers?,”

How do you know someone really believes in God? It’s how he or she lives their lives every day. Are they different from the worldly people? Do they take the same? Do they continue to live the same way they always lived? Is there something different from other people?

Women of a New Season “His banner over us is love!,”

Song of Solomon 2: 4: He brought me to the banqueting table and His banner over me is love. Last week we had a teaching in church about the last days.

Women of a New Season: “She swallowed a fly”

Romans 16: 17-18: Now I beseech you brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which you have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. When I was a little girl there was a comic on tv who sang a funny little song that is actually an English Nursery Rhyme, about a silly old woman who swallowed a fly.
