Two Favors from God

Image
"O God, I beg two favors from you; let me have them before I die. First, help me never to tell a lie Second, give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs. For if I grow rich, I may deny you  and say, "Who is the Lord?" And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God's holy name." Proverbs 30:7-9

This was playing on the radio right after i wrote my post this morning. God is always there to comfort and encourage us!

What's Causing Disorder?

Image
"For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition,  there you will find disorder and evil of every kind." James 3:16


I know that I cause alot of my grief and frustration by my selfishness. My sons want my attention and I want to sit and watch tv or read and be left alone. I suffer from this "evil" all the time as we all do.
"If you are wise and understand God's ways, prove it by living and honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don't cover up the truth with boasting and lying For jealousy and selfishness are not God's kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic."  James 3:13-15
Sometimes when I read the Word I think well God why did you make us this way?  We want to blame God for all of our flaws and all the evils in the world, but I think that it's us we need to point the finger back to. We have great po…

I Don't Deserve It

Image
You ever feel like that about God's love, mercy, grace and the gift He gave us through His son Jesus Christ who died a guiltless, sinless death for our souls salvation?

That's how I feel often when I've had an "episode" and lost it with my children or husband. Being bipolar and just realizing it after 35 years of life is depressing and embarrasing. I wonder how my family and friends are thinking about me or if they don't think much about it at all. That was my Dad's reaction as if it's nothing new to talk about....well for me it is! If I would've been properly diagnosed and treated as a child then my life would most definitely be different. Now I don't think about getting medication I am too set in my ways and way too stubborn for that. I deal with it in day to day life as stuff comes up.

I know that it will be different as my children get older and are in school. But the life I deserve is nothing like the one I have now. How could God save so…

The Romans Road to Salvation

Image
The Romans Road to Salvation:
Who is Good? 1.Romans 3:10 “As it is written, there is none righteous, not even one…”
Who has Sinned?
2.Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
God’s Price for Sin:
3.Romans 5:12 “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned.”
4.Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Who Paid the Price?
5.Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
The Only way out:
6.Romans 10:9-10 “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth confesses, resulting in salvation.”
7.Romans 10:13 “For whosoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.”

The Great Conflict

Image
Today this war is going on many of us experience it as a personal struggle between doing what is right and fighting what is wrong, others as I myself struggle personally with the conflict of emotional balance in the form of being bi-polar the two sides are manic and depression. Whatever your struggles no this it's a great conflict we all face and if you read Revelation 12 you see ultimately who wins and who is defeated. Stay encouraged in the Word of God.
The Two Sides of the Great Conflict  Revelation (12:1-14:20)
Then I witnessed in heaven an event of great significance. I saw a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon beneath her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head.2 She was pregnant, and she cried out because of her labor pains and the agony of giving birth. 3 Then I witnessed in heaven another significant event. I saw a large red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, with seven crowns on his heads.4 His tail swept away one-third of the stars in the sky, and he thre…

Genesis- Day Two: Sky, Waters
"Then God said, 'Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth.' And that is what happened. God made this space to separate the waters of the earth from the waters of the heavens. God called the space "sky. And evening passed and morning came, marking the second day." Genesis 1:6-8 The Holy Bible Word of God New Living Translation

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, 'Let there be light,' and  there was light. And God saw that the light was good.  Then he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day" and the darkness "night." And evening passed and morning came,  marking the first day." Genesis 1:1-5
