Inspiration, Christianity and My Life, Children

Speaking the Word


Years ago a preacher named Elbert Willis held some services at our church. He claimed that he had lived many years and never been sick and that reading scriptures each day and making confessions about the scriptures kept him healthy.   Elbert said that he had put the scriptures on 3″ x 5″ cards and read one set a day including the confession. So I made my cards and each day as I drove the kids to school one of my kids would read the cards and the confession.

As the years went by I lost touch with the cards. Then last year I found them again. As I read through them I realized that over the years these scriptures had helped guide my life. And the confessions had actually become part of my prayers.  There are scriptures for 14 days and a confession to go with each day. So I am going to share the first seven days this week. Use them, if you like to help strengthen your faith.

Enjoy your week I will be back next week with more.
