Let’s Welcome September

September 1, 2018

Very excited to share this month’s Calendar Challenge. But, before we get there, let’s pray…
Dear Father, as the weather cools, remind me of your grace and unfailing love. Day to day life distracts me so keep me close by your side, reading Your Word, and praying for wisdom. Help me enjoy every moment and live in the joy of your presence. Thank you for my salvation.

In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

The Sunny August Days

July 31, 2018

Oh, Father, as we approach this busy month, keep our hearts from drifting. Help us juggle chores with your wisdom and let the warm weather remind us of your steadfast love. Fill our minds with eternal purpose to love you more each day and share that love with our husband, children, and friends. May we overflow with your goodness and kindness to anyone nearby.

In the precious name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

July, July… You Have Finally Arrived

July 2, 2018

The heat is on! Here at Heart of the Matter Ministries, we love summer, but it’s funny how far we park just to grab that little tree which provides a little shade. Even if it’s just a little shade, our cars are just a little cooler for the next ride.

Shade. It’s a good word. Hmm… What does that make you think of? What about offering your life as shade for others? In this month’s Cynthia Chats with Chispa Magazine, I speak of loving one another’s gifts versus squabbling with one another. Loving one another’s gifts, despite our differences, not only allows Christ’s Love to come through, it also provides shade. You see, there is peace in shade.

Seek Him and Choose to Be Shade.

Welcoming April… He is Risen, Indeed!

March 30, 2018

We start this month by celebrating the resurrection of our KING! So, let us begin by singing praises to our Lord. And yes, sing like no one is listening:

“The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His perfect love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting?
Our resurrected King
Has rendered you defeated.

Forever He is glorified
Forever He is lifted high
Forever He is risen
He is alive, He is alive!

We sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah
The Lamb has overcome.”
Kari Jobe

For this month, let’s hold on to His Love, hold on to His Grace…

Welcoming March 2018… Spring Into Goodness + God’s Perfect Plan

March 1, 2018

March, the month that welcomes spring and the month that ends with the start of Holy Week. Where do you want to be this month? Are you seeking more of God’s Goodness or perhaps you’re wondering why He’s silent and you’re not? In this month’s #OthersCentered Calendar we’re prompted to yes, love others, but also to seek within and discern, rather than absorb.

Welcome December: The Final Month of 2017

December 1, 2017

Welcome December.  Over the past year, I have been uploading a clickable calendar themed around that month. Together we have celebrated, we have cried, we have prayed, we have had victory, and some of us, like myself, are still waiting for our prayers to be answered.

As we come together to welcome the final month of 2017 let’s not just come together as a “to-do,” but instead, let’s join in on living out a legacy and ask ourselves the daily question: What I am contributing to make the world a better place?

“Father in this month of Christmas and New Year,
may we grasp your greatness and power found in the
birth and salvation of Jesus Christ. In His Name, Amen.”

Celebrating November, One Day At a Time…

October 31, 2017

Welcome November.   Grab your favorite tea and especially your favorite mug and let’s journey together, each day of this month…

“Father in this month of thanksgiving,
may I grasp your greatness and power
so I may praise you with my whole heart.”
—Cynthia L. Simmons
