I do hope you all are able to get out and enjoy the summer, for summer here in New York only lasts for a short time. Then the winter comes to visit shortly after. It is the circle of life. Knowing that our GOD is in control is very comforting to me.
I want to share with you what I see that happens to me and other people. Be it we are Christians or not. There are some Christians that seem very mean, unforgiving and quick to judge in ways that say they are holier than thou. This is not good thing to do to each other. And we need to ask JESUS for help in not to do these things.
“Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:”
King James Version (KJV)
We are all sinners. The only man that walked the earth that is greater than any other man, was JESUS. ( That includes all mankind, male or female.) JESUS is the savior of us all, not just some. All who seek after JESUS and turn to Him for guidance as to how to get into heaven. It is impossible to do without JESUS, we need him 24/7. The ways of the world will tempt you to do things that people who do not love JESUS will want you to do to yourself and others with an evil heart. If they do not love JESUS, they do not love you.
1 John 1:8 – 1:10
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
King James Version (KJV)
GOD hates sin. It is understandable as to why too. It hurts all who are involved in it. Who love the sin they are in. It puts up a wall between GOD and us if we let, for our GOD can not look at sin! Only repentance and accepting JESUS as savior and letting JESUS fully into your heart will get us saved.
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
King James Version (KJV)
See when others judge us, for the wrong and we are doing good….this is not coming from GOD. They will attack us who believe in GOD to make us look bad before others who don’t know us or the LORD GOD.
Isaiah 5:20King James Version (KJV)
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
King James Version (KJV)
I say to all who have been hurt by those who have been called everything but a “Child of GOD” to remember who truly loves you.
IT IS GOD WHO LOVES YOU UNCONDITIONALLY! HE SENT HIS SON JESUS TO EARTH TO SHOW US THIS MUCH!!! AND JESUS IS REPRESENTING THE FATHER GOD!!! JESUS loves us too!!!
Pray first for JESUS to come into your heart. Read the KJV of the BIBLE. Listen to what the Bible is telling you. Pray for help, widom and the truth. LISTEN to what GOD tells you when you pray for the answer.
It may not be the one you expect , because you didn’t have the right answer to start with. GOD did and always will.
We were all born in sin from the fall of the 1st sin done in the Garden of Eden. The devil is busy right now trying to keep all people from getting into GOD’S heaven. He was kicked out of GOD’s heaven, and he sure does not want to see any of us getting in there!
Please do not listen to negative nonsense from people about you or anyone. This is hard for we all are human and make mistakes and sin. But the good thing is , we have JESUS who will help us walk on the right path.
As with the air that you breathe, GOD is there!
Be positive for the LORD GOD.
And HE will bless us for doing so!
Have a blessed day, and pass this blog forward so others will be blessed too for reading the scripture in it.
In the world there are many of us who are single looking for the one who will love us with all of their heart as how we will for them. We will look for this person and at times we will look in the wrong places. In the wrong people. For the wrong reasons.
Trusting in GOD’s plan is perfect because only HE knows what lurks in the heart of all mankind. It is hard to trust in GOD when we are stubborn or the flesh is weak. But for some it seems to be easier to trust in what mankind will say just because we want to be right with GOD.
GOD’s love is pure, unconditional, right and comforting. Trusting in GOD to lead you to the right person for you. GOD will not lead to confusion, or about the mate HE has sent before you. You will feel it happen and it will even feel right 100% in a GODLY way. As it has for me, it will for you as well.
The way how GOD has planned it is so easy, right and most of all sacred. The natural male gender is sacred, the natural woman gender is sacred. These two will then bound as man and wife to be fruitful and to multiply making more mankind and womankind.
Genesis 1 27-28
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it:
When you are feeling lonely, the devil will steal this from you , the sacredness of the natural bound for a man and a woman with his distractions to take this joy from you. You will not know what is sacred by GOD and run from it towards what is not. This can happen to you if you do not have GOD leading you, even from as a child. If you do not know about the word and what GOD is telling us all ….you will not know unless someone tells, you pick up the bible to read it for yourself, or through GOD divine intervention.
Trust in the word of GOD to show you how to deal with the ways of the world and the confusion you see going on right now. looking for a mate is a distraction if you are not listening to GOD who is telling to wait as HE is leading you. The people of the bible had the same issues of what we have today, and with GOD’s help they got through it. See there in the bible there are lessons on how to get through these times from the people in the bible.
You want the best one for you that you can trust, who will pray with you and for you at any second when you need it. Who will go to church with you when you go, this is part of fellowship with like-minded people. There is power in prayer for as you need it, someone will need yours as well too.
The ceremony of marriage is sacred too, and with the right mate you will please GOD. GOD loves us so that in this life we can not see all of it until we are before HIM in HIS heaven bowing before HIM giving HIM honor!
Ravi Zacharias Ministries “Just thinking”
Mr Zacharias will explain this better than I can. He explains the sacredness of marriage and the bond of the union of a natural man and woman in a gentle way. For he very well know that many will not agree with the bible. But it is a person’s choice to listen to GOD or not. But as for me and all of my loved ones we choose to listen to GOD, for it is heaven we seek after to be with GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS for all eternity long. Here are some links regarding sexuality in the worlds thinking.
Anything out of GOD’s plan is confusion, strife , sadness and the feeling of emptiness. You will see and hear people who do not have trust in GOD complain about the new person in their life and all of the new ones after that because they leaned on their own understanding.
1 Corinthians 7New King James Version (NKJV)
Principles of Marriage
7 Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me:
It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. 3 Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 5 Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 But I say this as a concession, not as a commandment. 7 For I wish that all men were even as I myself. But each one has his own gift from God, one in this manner and another in that.
8 But I say to the unmarried and to the widows: It is good for them if they remain even as I am; 9 but if they cannot exercise self-control, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion.
Keep Your Marriage Vows
10 Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. 11 But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife.
12 But to the rest I, not the Lord, say: If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is willing to live with him, let him not divorce her. 13 And a woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. 15 But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But God has called us to peace. 16 For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?
Live as You Are Called
17 But as God has distributed to each one, as the Lord has called each one, so let him walk. And so I [a]ordain in all the churches. 18 Was anyone called while circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Was anyone called while uncircumcised? Let him not be circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but keeping the commandments of God is what matters. 20 Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called. 21 Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it.22 For he who is called in the Lord while a slave is the Lord’s freedman. Likewise he who is called while free is Christ’s slave. 23 You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. 24 Brethren, let each one remain with God in that state in which he was called.
To the Unmarried and Widows
25 Now concerning virgins: I have no commandment from the Lord; yet I give judgment as one whom the Lord in His mercy has made trustworthy. 26 I suppose therefore that this is good because of the present distress—that it is good for a man to remain as he is: 27 Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be loosed. Are you loosed from a wife? Do not seek a wife. 28 But even if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Nevertheless such will have trouble in the flesh, but I would spare you.
29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short, so that from now on even those who have wives should be as though they had none, 30 those who weep as though they did not weep, those who rejoice as though they did not rejoice, those who buy as though they did not possess, 31 and those who use this world as not misusing it. For the form of this world is passing away.
32 But I want you to be without [b]care. He who is unmarried [c]cares for the things of the Lord—how he may please the Lord. 33 But he who is married cares about the things of the world—how he may please hiswife. 34 There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world—how she may please her husband. 35 And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction.
36 But if any man thinks he is behaving improperly toward his [d]virgin, if she is past the flower of youth, and thus it must be, let him do what he wishes. He does not sin; let them marry. 37 Nevertheless he who stands steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but has power over his own will, and has so determined in his heart that he will keep his [e]virgin, does well. 38 So then he who gives [f]her in marriage does well, but he who does not give her in marriage does better.
39 A wife is bound by law as long as her husband lives; but if her husband dies, she is at liberty to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord. 40 But she is happier if she remains as she is, according to my judgment—and I think I also have the Spirit of God.
It is better to wait for the GODLY mate than to just pick one on your own understandings and desires. We humans do not know what we are doing to each other or ourselves.
If we were abused at any level , age, place, or never taught what love is or the word of GOD….we will give into complicated relationships. Even if they are just your friends you socialize with besides work or school. Even if it is the current “trend” or what is “popular” with many…. if it is not of GOD leave it alone. Your soul is way more important than a weakness of the flesh or a lie of something you think you want to hear.
I will tell you, I as a natural-born woman did want to be married and have kids. But I had known it is better for a woman to wait for GOD to send the right man to me. And not the one I wanted through the flesh. The flesh only sees the cover of what is really in the heart. GOD sees what the heart truly is. A woman who trusts in the LORD doesn’t chase after a man to be her husband ever. Women trust in the LORD who will bring the man who is to be your husband. Men, trust in the LORD who is leading you to be your wife.
Proverbs 18:22King James Version (KJV)
22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.
GODS love is unconditional at all times. The right love that will show us the right love. And when we marry someone who is GODLY this love is in them too. This is why it is best to trust in the LORD at all times. GOD will lead us right.
Trust in GOD, trust in HIS beloves son JESUS. For without JESUS the mediator between GOD and man we can not get into heaven.
I do pra that this was a blessing to you, and may you have a blessing from the reding and the sharing of the word of in this blog and the blog itself. Have a blessed day!
31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
My salmon cakes cooking up.
Good Sunday morning to you all, or what ever time it is for you right now!
Many families now a days spend their time away from each other during the weekdays and the weekends they catch up and have a good meal at the table with each other. But when they are grown and have to take on their own responsibilities as adults….things might change and so enjoy your times together when you can.
My baked veggies in some butter.
I enjoy praying and reading the scripture with my family and then having a good meal. Being filled with the peaceful spirit of the LORD and a full tummy is a total feeling of peace and comfort for me.
My grandmother was an excellent cook and no one I know can or could have cooked as well as she could. When we had family dinners , relatives we have not seen for a while would come and leave full. I remember seeing the men eat so much that they sat in the living room loosening their belts and then falling asleep. Everyone was a hard worker and when we all got together it was either in the church or at the house catch up on things.
Deuteronomy 12:7English Standard Version (ESV)
7 And there you shall eat before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your households, in all that you undertake, in which the Lord your God has blessed you.
35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.
My fruit filled cupcakes with icing.
By the time dessert was ready to be eaten, most of the family was content feeling, but when “the eyes are bigger than the tummy” things lead to the belt loosening thing and falling asleep in the living room.
Everyone said my Grandmom was a good cook. But you can tell that when she didn’t have any leftovers to speak of to put away. My Grandma was a good woman who loved the LORD and raised up her kids to do the same.

25. Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near
Enjoy your new year with those who truly do love you and look out for you. Do not associate with those who envy you and say evil things about you when you are not around. They do not share the heart of JESUS and share the heart of the evil one. It doesnt matter if they are family. For they are people and make their own choices on how they want to live. With GOD the FATHER as the lead, or the fallen one who is lost.
You need no distractions on you path to righteousness. None.
Be joyful, encourage others and particularly for others who are followers of JESUS. For they maybe going through a trail that is weighing them down and you may not even be aware of it. if you are being to self centered at the moment to not see it. Not everyone physically shows what they are going through, nor speak about to others. They may keep things to themselves as they are going through what they are going through.
Enjoy your meal with your family, loved ones, and friends. May this blog post encourage you and bless you as you read and share the word of GOD. #passitforward!
