Me, Jesus and CLARITY

How to connect with God.  Lessons I’ve learned. I once read in a book that said God speaks to you loud and clear. All we have to do is listen, feel, smell, touch,  to know God’s presence in your life.  Usually if your pondering something and your jawbone or temples hurt, it’s a nay!  But……if… Continue reading Me, Jesus and CLARITY

Thursdays Dose Of Knowledge ~ The Crucifixion Of Jesus

CRUCIFIXION WAS A BRUTAL, gruesome, and highly public form of capital punishment employed by various ancient societies as a deterrent.  Sometimes rulers ordered that members of rebel groups be crucified  dozens at a time, with crosses lining the roads.  When the Romans took control of the Mediterranean world, they perfected the science of crucifixion. The… Continue reading Thursdays Dose Of Knowledge ~ The Crucifixion Of Jesus

Thursdays Dose of Knowledge ~ The Last Supper

FEW EVENTS IN JESUS’ life are remembered more frequently than the meal he shared with his closest disciples on the night when he was arrested.  That meal is known by such names as the Last Supper, the Lord’s Supper, the Eucharist (thanksgiving), or communion. That last evening, however, posed concerns other than food.  Jesus realized… Continue reading Thursdays Dose of Knowledge ~ The Last Supper

It doesn’t matter what your vision looks like in the natural.  God is a supernatural GOD. He is not limited by your resources, by your environment, by your education, by your nationality.

Thursdays Dose of Knowledge ~ The Tree of Knowledge

The Garden of Eden was a place of unimaginable beauty, prepared by God specifically for humans to enjoy.  It had trees that were “pleasant to the sight and good for food” (Genesis 2:9), it was watered well by four rivers, and it abounded in precious metals and stones.  All of this was for the humans… Continue reading Thursdays Dose of Knowledge ~ The Tree of Knowledge

1 Samuel 16:7 (GW)

But the LORD told Samuel, “Don’t look at his appearance or how tall he is, because I have rejected him. God does not see as humans see. Humans look at outward appearances, but the LORD looks into the heart.”      

God’s Everlasting Love

38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.   Romans 8:38-39

I’m so blessed!

I am sitting here wondering how I came to be so blessed.  My surroundings are warm today.  A new year, new hope, and new dreams.

What does it mean that God works in mysterious ways?

God works in ways that are often deemed “mysterious”—that is to say, God’s methods often leave people totally bewildered. Why would God tell Joshua and the children of Israel to march around the city of Jericho for a week (Joshua 6:1–4)? What good could possibly come from Paul and Silas being arrested and beaten without… Continue reading What does it mean that God works in mysterious ways?

Is a believer supposed to be able to feel the Holy Spirit?

We are not filled with the Spirit because we feel we are, but because this is the privilege and possession of the Christian. Being filled or controlled by the Spirit is the result of walking in obedience to the Lord. This is a gift of grace and not an emotional feeling. Emotions can and will… Continue reading Is a believer supposed to be able to feel the Holy Spirit?

Gathering Our Selves

 When we fall fragmented, we are actually beside ourselves energetically and need to gather ourselves back together again. Have you ever felt like this?  My sister and I were discussing what happens to us when we get this feeling.  Some call it lazy.  I call it time to be still.  Our lives are often like… Continue reading Gathering Our Selves

A New Day, Another Chance

Have you ever wondered why nothing around you is changing?  It’s simply because you are not changing it.  We are creatures of habit and nothing will ever change for us. FALSE!  Direct your own change by changing your own habits; changing your own thinking and your own doing.  I’ve been telling myself for years, I… Continue reading A New Day, Another Chance

Cultivating Spiritual Fruit

 

Galatians 5:22-23 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.                    

                                              fruite of the spirit

The fruit of the Holy Spirit refers to the nature of the Spirit revealed in the life of the believer. The fruit of the Holy Spirit is for character.  Spiritual fruit is evidence of spiritual maturity. Like fruit in the natural world, it is a product which is the result of the process of life. Spiritual fruit is Christian character in both personal and social conduct and is a product of the Holy Spirit at work in your life and your response to this work. Just as fruit takes time to develop in the natural world, spiritual fruit takes time to develop. It is the product of natural growth in the life of the Spirit.

LOVE~ Good will, brotherly charity, out of love for God and according to his will, unconditional holy affection. JOY~ cheerfulness, calm delight, gladness, greatly be exceeding. PEACE~ absence of conflict, quietness, tranquil state of a redeemed, believing, obeying soul. LONG-SUFFERING~ patience, in faith.  GENTLENESS~ softness of temper, mildness, benign spirit, kindness. GOODNESS~ uprightness of heart & life, virtue. FAITH~ belief, with the predominate idea of trust or confidence in God or in Christ.  MEEKNESS– softness of temper, a fruit of confidence in God and a form of temperance.  TEMPERANCE~ spirit governed self-control, fruit of character by dying to self in yielding to the Spirit in obeying His Word.
