Is it manipulative to encourage or influence another’s faith?

These are my latest card creations. I just have this bundle of four ready to give away and then these new ones I’ve made, but haven’t written in yet, and I’ve been wondering if I should continue or…Continue

Do you like to feel in control of your problems?

Do you like to feel in control of your problems? Why or why not? What do we risk by fully turning our problems over to God? What could we gain? How do we fully turn them over? Is it possible?

 

One of my favorite quotes is, "You're not brave, if you're not scared."

Is it manipulative to encourage or influence another’s faith?

These are my latest card creations. I just have this bundle of four ready to give away and then these new ones I’ve made, but haven’t written in yet, and I’ve been wondering if I should continue or stop doing it.I enjoy making the cards. It’s therapeutic in a way, for me, but the primary goal has been to seek to encourage others in their faith in Christ.Many people consider their faith as a private matter, not just personal, and I certainly don’t want to be intrusive or send someone something…See More

Through Him, I have been forgiven, declared righteous, and am precious in God's eyes.

The piece of text on the image said, "I'm not what I ought to be. I'm not what I wish to be. I'm not even what I hope to be. But by God's grace and Jesus' love I'm not what I used to be."



All of us do things or have things in our lives that God doesn't want. None of us live in sinless perfection, but does that mean we shouldn't talk about God or share the gospel of Christ until we do?



I want to please God with my life, but I know I fail in many ways. My failures don't mean… Continue

His death was in exchange for your life.

Have you ever examined yourself on the question of whether or not you turned to Christ out of fear for yourself, your eternal destiny, and what He can give you, or because you were truly sorry for the sinful life you've lived and what it cost Jesus to be your Redeemer, the One Who ransomed you, paid the price for your release from sin and its consequences and you love Him?



His death was in exchange for your life. "Through His blood" means by His death (Colossians… Continue

Well, somehow I made it through this Sunday morning's church service. Just kidding ...



The focus as usual was on God and exalting Him.



Love and thankfulness to God were apparent in those who participated in leading the service ... through the songs and communion, through prayer and the reading of the Scriptures.



Truly, for the time I'm there, they make it easy for me to remove my eyes from my own problems and focus on God.



This morning's Scripture… Continue

"I'm resting in Your Sovereignty"

I ask things of God while knowing that God Himself has need of nothing. Still, I wonder if there is anything I can give to God?



When I pray, I ask for His will. I pray for safety and protection for my family, that He will guard their lives, shed light upon their paths, and make their hearts happy, and I ask Him to save my lost loved ones, and help those I know who are struggling in their faith or facing hardships and loss.



I know I have nothing with which to use for… Continue

Hope your  days are treating you very kindly.  Cold winter days have been our area  for quite some time but gradually  it is getting abit warmer. Can't wait to see the above temps and not below zero. We shall see!

In the mean time have a warm cup of tea, coffee and or hot chocolate while one enjoys the winter days. What a treat seeing some snow come done today.

May  you have a glorious week enjoying your moments of life during your day. Smiles  Gloria

A Blessed Merry Christmas  and a peaceful New Year.  What a glorious week this is  doing this and that and that and this as one gets ready for Christmas eve and day. 

Last of the Christmas cards have been sent out  and enjoying all the ones coming in  the mail box  and the lovely  photos to display year round in a special place for all to see. 

I do have the spritz cookies made but must get at the date filled cookies.  The families favorite two cookies and they are going to be looking for them when all come for Christmas. Such a  glorious time of the season family gatherings bringing joy to every ones heart.  Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones. Smiles  Gloria

Can people love someone whatever is true about them?

Yes! by the renewing the mind.

The UN-renewed Mine!!

#1. An UN-renewed mine is always waging war against unbelief.

#2. Ever praying for faith, but never arriving.

#3. Talking unbelief, yet struggling to get faith,

#4. Confessing failure, at the same time, confessing faith in the Word, yet denying it in action,

#5. Trying to believe, yet never acting on the Word.

 This is the attributes of Love, "God's kind of love" that we are to have as a Christian.

1 Cor. 13:4-8 Amp. Affirmation

God is Love

Because I walk in love, and love lives in me

#1. I endure long

#2. I’m patient and kind,

#3. I’m never envious, nor do I boil over with jealously

#4. I’m never boastful or vainglorious

#5. I never display myself haughtily

#6. I’m not conceited, arrogant or inflated with pride

#7. I’m never rude, or unmannerly, and I never act unbecomingly

#8. I never insist on my own rights, or my own ways

#9. I am not self-seeking

#10. I’m never touchy, fretful, or resentful

#11. I take no account of an evil done to me

#12. I pay no attention to a suffered wrong

#13. I do not rejoice at injustice, and unrighteousness

#14 But I do rejoice when right and truth prevail

#15. I bear up under anything, and everything that comes

#16. I am ever ready to believe the best of everyone

#17. My hopes are fade-less under all circumstances

#18. I endure everything without weakening

#19. For the love in me never fails, never fades out, becomes obsolete, or comes to an end
