God's Roadmap

Now may the Lord Jesus Christ and our Father God, who loved us and in his wonderful grace gave us eternal comfort and a beautiful hope that cannot fail, encourage your hearts and inspire you with strength to always do and speak what is good and beautiful in his eyes (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 TPT).

How Do Our Words Affect Our Minds and Bodies?


by Barbara Latta

We hear a lot about the power of our words. Because some uses of this principle have been misused, we may turn a deaf ear to listening to lessons regarding the importance of what we say.

But words do affect our minds and bodies. The Bible is filled with admonitions for us to watch what we say.

I have a small book that is a collection of scriptural confessions, titled God’s Creative Power, written by Charles Capps.

This little printed treasure chest has helped draw me out of doubt, discouragement, and bad attitudes on numerous occasions as I refer to these pages.

And as God sometimes does, we can read passages we have seen multiple times and then BOOM—we get a new revelation out of His Word.

A Loving Father's Discipline


by Barbara Latta

I kept my tongue in my mouth for the rest of my growing years. Although it didn’t feel like it at the time, I experienced a loving father’s discipline.

by Barbara Latta

This month two books I have contributed devotions and articles to have been released.

It’s not a coincidence that both focus on the love of God. Maybe the Lord is trying to tell us something.

He really, really loves us!

How Assumptions Can Hurt Relationships


by Barbara Latta

Assuming we know the motive behind someone’s actions can lead to dangerous judgments. Whether it is in marital relationships, friendships, or business connections, we can traverse into dangerous territory when we don’t gather all the facts before forming opinions.

We can learn a valuable lesson about how assumptions can hurt relationships from an incident that happened when the Israelites settled in the Promised Land.
