Top 10 Posts of 2017
“Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered” Psalms 105:5 (ESV)
This week I’m sharing the Top 10 Posts of 2017. I always like to take the first of the year to recount some of the top or most popular posts of the previous year. I like to share them for a few reasons…
First, there are several new subscribers/followers who may not have seen or read these posts and might find some of them to be helpful.
Secondly, looking back also helps me to remember what God has done and is still doing through this website. I continue to hope and pray that I am making an impact with what I write and share.
Lastly, it helps me (and hopefully you too) have ideas of how to pray based on what the current need or demand is, and when I know that I know how to continue to pray for others. What people are frequently searching or clicking on can be an indicator of some of their needs. Whether it’s a need for spiritual growth, leading others to Christ or overcoming personal struggles, I can pray more specifically based on these posts and their popularity.
Take Some Practical Steps:
- As you look through this list of most popular posts, please stop and take a minute to pray for one or more of the topics that stand out to you.
- Please click on and read or re-read one or more of the posts from which you feel you may be able to receive some benefit or of which you might need some reminding.
- Pay it forward…if one or more of the following posts has benefited you, please consider sharing the post on Facebook and/or your other social media channels (sharing links are available at the end of each post). You can also forward posts to specific people you know who might benefit (you might prayerfully consider who to share them with).
- Lastly, please pray for me this year to #1-continue to help others, #2-for me to have to right words at the right time, and #3-for the right people to be directed to my site for God to help them.

Do you ever just feel attacked? Maybe it’s time to fight back…in the right way. I do believe there is a time and a place to endure attacks, but I also firmly believe that God never intended for us to be doormats to be walked on by people. This post has a prayer to go on the offensive when you’re being verbally attacked by people.
This post contains some scriptures for when you feel attacked or persecuted. It’s helpful that God has given us some encouragement & direction on this topic. These scriptures are helpful and comforting to let us know that we’re not alone, that God is our avenger, and that we will be blessed and graced when enduring persecution.
Thank you for all of your support and encouragement in 2017! Praying for you to be very Happy, Healthy & Prosperous in 2018 and all the years to come!
