A New Way of Journaling

A New Way of Journaling

I have a slight addiction to notebooks and journals. And by slight, I mean a big addiction.

I love opening a new journal, cracking the spine, sitting to write or jot a few notes down. Here's a snapshot of my collection:

I have a notebook just for my to-do lists.
I have a notebook just for taking notes on Sunday's sermons.
I have a notebook just for writing my favorite quotes from books I've read.
I have a notebook just for taking notes on my scripture studies.
I have notebooks just to sit on my desk and look pretty.

Told you I had an addiction.

Dream the Dream

Dream the Dream

Dream a dream, and each step brings you closer to living that dream.

Can my mind be boxed into little tiny thoughts and hopes, longing for small expectations day after monotonous day, or can I live with a dream, wrapped in joy, with an eye on the prize. I want to set my mind free. No walls, no barriers, no confines — just wide open sky.

The S-Diet

The S-Diet

"Dieting" is the key word today, along with "better nutrition," "watch the fats," "lowering our cholesterol," and "exercise." This is very good advice for healthier living. And we need to keep this in check. But I would like to talk about a different diet, one that is also necessary for a healthy and long life.

This is our spiritual diet, or S-diet.

Floored (Again)

Floored (Again)

Let me give you a disclaimer before you read this article:

The brothers and sisters in my branch give me reasons each and every Sunday to realize and understand better just how deep the family of God is.

The Sunday when it was announced from the pulpit that the Lord had opened the door for me to meet the family of God in Guatemala, I had so many handshakes and hugs of congratulations after the meeting.

Miracles at the Water's Edge

We're rounding out the week with more experiences courtesy of the IMOC. Yesterday, we asked you to pinpoint the common thread shared by all three experiences. It was that all were immediate, on-the-spot healings. Today, we're not going to make you guess the common theme. It's baptism. Here are two powerful baptism experiences — share yours for Miracle Monday next month!

More Missionary Miracles

More Missionary Miracles

Yesterday, we shared several experiences from the IMOC, and we've got more for you today. God is truly working with our brothers and sisters outside of the U.S. Yesterday, we asked you to find the common thread in all three experiences. It was that each one involved the rebuking of an evil spirit. Today's experiences have a common thread, too. Can you see it?

Miracles in Common

Spread the Good Word: James 4:17

Spread the Good Word: James 4:17

Today's Good Word comes from Sister Enza Pusillio.

"Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin" James 4:17.

Thanks so much for sharing, Sister Enza! Sometimes we gravitate more toward memorizing the warm, fuzzy scriptures, but we need to commit the convicting ones to memory, too.

Share your favorite scripture with us, and we'll make it our next Good Word Friday.

Year-End Survey Results

Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond to the survey a few weeks back! It's our desire to do two main things with the Gospel Blog this year: glorify God and serve you.

God willing in 2015, we intend to continue publishing the great things God has done by sharing your testimonies, experiences, and miracles. We also hope that the devotionals, lessons, and other writings will be a spiritual supplement to your everyday scripture reading routine.

God's (Good) Plan for 2015

Written by Sister Michelle Watson on Wednesday, 07 January 2015. Posted in Devotional Hits 2303

God's (Good) Plan for 2015

I'm a planner, for sure. I can appreciate spontaneity, but, in most situations, I like to know what to expect. I want to know what hotel I'm staying at on vacation. I want to know what kind of food the restaurant serves before I get there. When I get paid, I want to know ahead of time where the money is going.

How about you? Are you a planner?
