“For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:”
King James Version (KJV)
Good day to you all. I do hope all is well as we are now into a new month in 2020. It is the month for Black history and Valentine”s Day. Both are good thing s to know about for all people.
Speaking of love on Valentines day…this is something that we all should consider doing is to share the love we have from the body of Christ with others. Many have no idea what this is.
As I have read the way that JESUS would talk to women in the Bible HE had compassion for us. Understanding too. But this was for everyone, not just us women. The Children along with the men. So yeah, that is pretty much everyone of all ages. The elders, infants and those in between too.
1 Corinthians 12:12-27 KJV
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
14 For the body is not one member, but many,
There is no division between the peoples of the body of Christ. Not an issue with the body of Christ when you understand what it is about. There should be unity. Read 1 Corinthians 12:12-27
We are all one, with differents jobs to do as a body would have hands, a head, a heart to make the body work in unity. We are all given different gifts to do to serve. Cool!
Let us do our serving as how GOD wants us to do so, to encourage others to GOD. Let us listen to GOD to find our gifts, and not to compare us to others. Others have their own gifts as how to serve. A foot can not do what the head can do. And if the leg hurts and you can not walk, then the whole body will suffer trying to move about in pain.
Let us find fellowship with our fellow members of Christ so we can edify each other.
Please do pass this forward so others will hear and read the word of GOD and get a blessing from this. We who love GOD and those who need to find GOD. Have a blessed day!
Since as a child, I remember those Sunday dinners that my beloved Grandma made. After Church , I recall the house smelling like good food for the meal was done before we went to church and all we had to do was to heat it up some and eat.
Life was so easy as a child, I tell you. All I had to do was go to Church (I always enjoyed it) go to school, play with friends and cousins, be a good kid and stay out of trouble. And enjoy my Grandmas cooking with my loving family.
I understand that not all people had that kinds of life, and I will say mine was not perfect. There have been some sour kids at school that seemed like something from another planet…but knowing they don’t live with me I was happy about that,
What I loved most was Chicken and Fish. Still do as I think about it. Easy on the tummy more so than beef for me. LOL!
My baked chicken is very easy to do. It is easier than fried. If I can get a whole chicken on sale , I will cut it up like you see below.
Ingredients: Just in case you choose to make it are very simple. Seasoned salt and black pepper to taste. Just sprinkle the seasonings on lightly on your chicken. It can be a whole uncut or cut up like I did. Place your chicken on a buttered baking dish at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Or until it looks like mine where the skin is nice and brown and crispy.
My husband loves potatoes. Loves them mashed even better!
Ingredients: 6 – 3 inch fresh peeled potatoes in a pot just covered with water. Then boiled until tender. Drain water. Add 1 stick of butter, 1/2 cup of milk, salt to taste and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. Simple stuff. Just use your mixer to make it smooth and fluffy.
Now we like peas. I just heat up some frozen peas.
As for dessert, I might just make Jello. Depending on the timing and how many other thing I need to get done during the day.
Enjoy your Sunday dinner with your family, friends or only just with the LORD. The LORD is always with us no matter where we are.
“He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.”
King James Version (KJV)
Dear FATHER GOD,
I do pray for every person that has walked the face of your earth. Be it not saved (yet) or those who have not come to you and your son Jesus for salvation. I pray that those who are reading this you will touch their hearts, open their eyes to what they are missing in pure unconditional love, peace, joy and the knowing that you are in control!
Those who have heavy burdens who need to leave it with you, and who do not know to leave it with you. That you dear FATHER GOD can get them through all of the weight and troubles that this world has given them. I ask for healing of the mind, body and soul for them all to seek righteousness! And for your beloved son Jesus!
For you are fair, loving, good, patient and forgiving at all times. We all need you, every person on this earth! I ask this in Jesus name FATHER GOD and I thank you!
Good morning to all of you!
I do pray that you will have a blessed day and until we all meet the next time of the reading of the nex blog GOD willing. For none of us knows when GOD will send his son JESUS to return. It could happen at any time that GOD sees fit.
“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”
King James Version (KJV)
The LORD is warning all people of the earth of things we are doing to harming each other, the whole earth and our individual selves too. It is all confusion when we do not follow GOD’s laws. The thoughts and ideas we have that are not GOD based are of mankind’s. Man does not know better than GOD. So our ways are not of pure good, for we do things to our limited understandings.
We all make mistakes, and sin because we want to do what we want. Ever try to tell a 2 year old something that they are doing is not right right? And they will let you know thy do not want to listen if they are stubborn. If you don’t have small children around when you go to the grocery store on a saturday morning you might see a scenario like this there. The loving parent will explain to the child, “No you can not have only candy for dinner…” , and the will react. Turn away from the parent upset.
We as adults can do the same thing towards our loving FATHER GOD. Trusting and loving our GOD is what will keep the joy in your heart. You will see there is nothing as perfect and dependable as the love and joy from our FATHER GOD. Nothing. You will always have joy in you when you know this is from GOD, and he is in you.
When our days are done on on this earth and the LORD calls us home….we are then in wait for judgment. We cant pull away and turn in defiance as a small child will because we want to have “candy”.
That part of our lives is done here in the flesh. There is no outlet from death once we are buried into the ground. JESUS came the first time to teach us the right way, the laws of our GOD. Righteousness as how he lived and spoke. How we should live . Salvation is when we trust and believe in JESUS as our savior sent by GOD.
Our final resting place will be where we will wait for our judgement. Our names will be put into the book of life if we deserve it. We will then see the face of JESUS. Our flesh is laid to rest, our souls in sleep until the skies will crack open with JESUS to the rescue for all of us who love Him!
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.
“What is an a la carte menu ? If you request just a piece of fried fish at a restaurant, rather than the fish platter that includes French fries and coleslaw, you can say you ordered a la carte, or a single item from the menu. … The opposite of a la carte is a table d’hôte, or “meal served at a fixed price.”
Good morning everyone! I do pray that you all will have a blessed day!
If you listen to people these days in time, may people do not really know what the Bible is about. They have not read it from cover to cover and they seem so confused when a Christian will ask them if they know JESUS. This is after they say something like “I thank GOD for…” And this is in just casual conversation if the other person says they are a believer.
It is hard enough trying your best to be a Christian and follower of JESUS as it is with all of the negative things going on around you. You NEED to be close to GOD and accept JESUS as our savoir. There is no in between of it.
Many feel it is okay to not to deny yourself of an extramarital affair or sex before marriage. Or what is becoming more popular is same sex attraction. Nope. these bad habits will cause so much confusion and hurt feelings more than a little.
See when you fall and mess up with any thing besides sexual temptations, repenting and seeing your wrong will save you more unwanted strife. Even if you are not in a good way in your faith yet, think about this. Sex is a sacred act for a natural man and woman given to us by GOD starting with Adam and Eve.
Sex is sacred. By GOD. Made for us to be fruitful and to multiply the earth.
Genesis 1:28King James Version (KJV)
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Diseases are passed from one person to another through body fluids. You may enjoy what you are doing be it for 5 minutes or what ever. but there are viruses out there that will kill you. Sexually transmitted diseases are not joke.
You can bring that killer home to your spouse. Spread it to your kids as well because if you are the kind of parent that kiss your kids on the mouth, you can give your kids the sores you have on your mouth to your babies. And that would be awful! (Even if you don’t cheat, kissing your child on the lips is not proper)
Marriages break up when the spouse who cheated is infested with what they have brought home to give to them. Even if they dont die from it, the fact that they came home with this issue lets the innocent spouse know what happened if they never has STD’s.
If you are heterosexual , and not married to your sex partner you still can get infected. Even if you are living together, does not mean he or she will not cheat on you. There is no feeling of commitment in a relationship like this. It may work for some, but you are taking a chance of neer getting married. When a person is in a certain level of faith they will not even consider living without benefit of clergy and the law of GOD. No point when you want to do what is right by GOD to live outside of the law.
Same sex attractions is nothing but confusion. They can not procreate as how a natural heterosexual couple can and are designed by GOD to do. They will have to find children from a heterosexual couples natural bond to take as their “own”. This is not really a true natural way as how GOD wanted things ro be. One person in these relationships is acting more as the male and the other as female as in the “mocking” of what a heterosexual couple will do. So in its way, this is NOT being fruitful and multiplying as in GOD’s plan because this same sex attraction can not. It can only indoctrinate not procreate.
“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
King James Version (KJV)
People with the mental condition called “Gender dysphoria” is a step up to cause even more trouble for all mankind as these people are altering their appearance to look like the opposite sex than what they were born to be. If a heterosexual person assumes who they are in a relationship is their opposite sex….and finds out this dysphoric person was lying to them it will cause serious complications. Some times with horrible conclusions for the dysphoric person. This mental state of mind can be cured and controlled with medication therapies. But with how the way of the world is , people are into the money aspects of things surgery rules over the medication. The combination surgery, and the medicines , and hormone treatments that these people need to keep up appearances is more costly than visits to psychiatrists and than getting the medicine for the dysphoric mental condition.
Children are affected from the sexual confusions by the parents. Be it from what ever sexual perversion we people might have, our children are affected by it.
Selfish desires create confusions because we decide we know better than GOD. We don’t. Shaking our hand up at our GOD because we were lied to by satan to fall into these temptations. The devil is laughing at us when we don’t listen to GOD.
GOD’s laws were made to give us joy and peace. No confusion as to what we are created to be. No apples wanting to morph into a banana or whatever. No enveying what someone else has because you want it when GOD is giving you what you need and we don’t see it. because we are watching others.
We humans need to read the word, and stay in prayer. GOD’s way is right, pure and loving. We don’t have to worry about if the man we are dating is a natural male or not when we wait on GOD to send us the right man. Although I will say paying attention to bone structure too will let you know if you are looking at a true male or not. A mans bone structure is larger than a womans, such as the hands, feet, shoulders and head shape. Leaning on and waiting on GOD is the best way on all things.
We all should think about all we do and to put GOD in all we do. Once we have accepted JESUS as savior we will want to do GOD’s plan with out giving it a second thought. Not to stay in a sin that is wrong by GOD.
I pray for all people I know to have their hearts opened and to repent who do not follow our beloved JESUS. Who do not love GOD, but love the sn that they are in. I pray that you will ask JESUS to come into your heart and to repent and be saved. To give you the strength to ignore the temptations and lies that the devil was telling you so that you will continue to be unhappy. Or in a false state of happiness. You may not believe me right now, but if you go to a quiet place and pray to JESUS, HE WILL answer you! Your eyes and heart will be opened. I tell you there is no joy on this earth like there is with our beloved FATHER GOD and HIS son JESUS. Nope, there is nothing that closes close at all.
Remember, the devil lies to us all to make us all fall. But JESUS can pick us up. I wrote this topic today for love and peace and for the praise of our FATHER GOD. Not to judge. GOD is the only one who can judge fairly. I am just a messenger of GOD’S word. For we all do sin every single day knowingly or not.
Have a blessed day, and may you all get a blessing from the reading of GOD’s word and the blessings of this blog. Pass it forward so others will get the blessing too!
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!
Hello everyone, I do pray that you all will have a blessed and happy new year of 2019! May GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS always keep watch over you and all of your loved ones wherever you all maybe on GODS earth!
I want to share something with you about starting your new year off with joy and peace. We need to think about the different people we come across in our travels from year to week to days and so on.
During your course of the day , of any day in your life you will meet a negative person who just seems to maybe even enjoy being negative. These people we should pray for avoid and move on.
You may have even tried to show them about being negative is not good way to be, by being positive. You know, telling them good things, showing them the blessings in life and all they seem to come up with is a complaint or something negative. as if to turn their backs on joy.
I know many people who are suffering with this negative mindset, and I do feel sorry for them even though I do know this is a choice they have made to be.
Anyone can feel depressed at any given time, but to dwell on it is not good. It will keep you down. Until only the LORD to throw a rope to them up and out into a wonderful perfect blessing!
King David in the Bible who wrote the Psalms dealt with negativity and by reading the Psalms you do see how much he did love GOD and depended on GOD to pull him up. GOD did just that, and he always did.
You see the trails he went through in his time of life is no different from what we as the people of today go through right now. He had his haters too, that sought after him to destroy him. When you are a loving child of GOD this is what happens every single day when you have to work or be around those who are un GODLY and hate GOD. They will see that there is something different about you and will hate you too.
1.Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
Even if you have recently been saved and now love GOD and HIS son JESUS, those people you once called as a friend will now turn against you. Hating you, because now you are different to them. They can sense it in you. You are now covered with the blood of JESUS and do have Him in your heart.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
What you will need to do now is to see that were you were is not where you needed to be. Those people who you once associated with will not want you around them. For their heart is not like yours now since you have accepted JESUS as your savior.
Prayer, faith , trust, understanding and making GOD your 1st best friend in your life who is THE perfect best friend to have and HIS son JESUS is 2nd because he is the son who came after the FATHER GOD in heaven. That’s how it is for me, and I am very comfortable with that too. You will see you can not depend on people, or things of the world to find your joy, for it is in the LORD. You will never be alone of feel alone when you will see that you have two very, very, very good loving friends with you at all times in your life.
Here is a site with even more scripture to read that is encouraging. For we follow the lead of JESUS our savior.
John 15:18-27King James Version (KJV)
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Please be safe as you may choose to celebrate the new year, keep GOD 1st in all you do. Blessed as you read this blog and GODs scripture included, and pass forward the blessing to others to read as well.
