Today’s Affirmation: I give you what I have.

Expectations are huge. Do we expect God to use whatever we do have? It may not seem like much to us but do we have faith in the Almighty to use us for His glory? Can you believe you already have all that it takes?Today’s affirmation comes from Acts 3:6 where Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you.”Do you think the crippled man sitting at the gate called Beautiful in this story expected more than just the typical beggars reward from Peter and John when they passed…See More

Today’s Affirmation: I find blessings at the end of the rope.

Hanging on for dear life many times we feel like we are at the end of our rope. No where else to go, out of options, losing our grip. As my hands lose their grip I have to trust God with whatever comes next. I can not hold on any longer.In Matthew 5:3 the Message says: "You're blessed when you're at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.”The New American Standard Bible says a version most of us have heard: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the…See More

Dan Miller commented on Tom Raines's blog post Today’s Affirmation: The blessings of the Lord make me rich.
"I've enjoyed the blessings of the Lord while at every level financially. But I certainly enjoy being rich financially more than remaining in poverty. I enjoy being a trusted conduit of blessings (in many forms) that I can pass on to others."

Today’s Affirmation: I will do today what the Lord has prepared for me.

Do you believe that the Lord has a specific plan for you today? Can this day be planned for you and you not even be aware? Can God be so specific to you? I am not prepared intellectually to debate predestination but I do simply believe in scripture.This affirmation was derived from Psalm 139:16:“You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” (NLT)Have you ever experienced God showing you a scripture at a…See More

Today’s Affirmation: I seek the wisdom from above.

Today’s Affirmation: I seek the wisdom from above.I find great comfort in knowing God’s wisdom is the ultimate way to go and the benefits to all are so much greater. I cry out for wisdom and lift up my voice for understanding today. This affirmation is drawn from James 3:17 “However, the wisdom that comes from above is first of all pure. Then it is peaceful, gentle, obedient, filled with mercy and good deeds, impartial, and sincere.” God’s Word Translation.Sounds like a great friend, huh? Let’s…See More

Today's Affirmation: I give to God all that I have.

Today’s Affirmation: I give to God all that I have.ALL. How can three letters form such a HUGE word? Mark 12:44 is the source of this daily affirmation. This is the story of where the poor widow gave her two mites as her offering. She gave out of her poverty.Are you broke? Broken? Some of us are both sometimes. The preceding verses in Mark 12 are full of the temptations of the Pharisee’s and Sadducees trying to trap Jesus with their trick questions. We still do that to each other don’t we? Even…See More

Today’s Affirmation: By the Grace of God I am what I am.

Today’s Affirmation: By the Grace of God I am what I am.What is your story? We all have a story of who we are and what we have experienced. By God’s grace we are who we are. No matter the story we can glorify the Father. Our darkest hours and our brightest moments may be used for His glory and to help our fellow man.This daily affirmation comes from 1 Corinthians 15:10 where Paul says “…But by the grace of God I am what I am…” Paul states this after saying in 15:09 that he was not worthy to be…See More

Today’s Affirmation: The blessings of the Lord make me rich.

What does “rich” mean to you? I have heard of rich chocolate or rich soil. Man, are they rich! Is rich the same as wealth? I am NOT saying there is anything wrong with wealth and I am perfectly OK with generating wealth for myself and others. Just was impacted by the readings today and interested in other perspectives.…

I know that I added my blog address in on my profile page...I am sure that if you scroll down each person's page to the "questions" you will find website addresses...I added mine in the website area.

I think that the blog entries that are listed at the bottom of the 48days page are "internal" blogs just on the 48 days site...I am not 100% sure of that though.

I found out how to add some more of the widgets to the right hand side of the theme page that you and I both use...I can help you with that if you would like...email me at ktroupe@gmail.com with a way to contact you and I can walk you through it.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for getting involved with the group and discussion. I typically ask one of our members if they would lead the weekly discussion.

Kim did such a great job last week, I asked her to lead it again this week.

The next issue of the newsletter will be out in a few days. 4 Points Coaching is a weekly. May we start sending it your way?
