16 Days of Believing~Highest Servant

There is a God who created the world by speaking into existence the universes with mathematical precision that exists up to the minute you breathe your next breath.  By the breath He used He created minute breathing moving entities, made light that traveled trillions of light years away to this earth, formed the DNA that made each living thing so that it remained in His image yet was specifically different.  A God who is so intellectual but able to stoop and become one of us that our sins might be forgiven and be conquerors over evil.  A God whose joy is to COUNT the stars naming them one by one and numbers our hairs, made the sparrows and knows where they are. 

A story about a couple of motorcycle riders, you know dressed up in their leathers, dark glasses, young couple on one and an older gentleman on the other.  On getting off the bike the younger lady walked over to the older gentleman and engaged in some animated conversation.  Her hands were moving about furiously as the older gentleman looked intensely on.  The onlooker realized that the younger was using her hands in sign language.

That is the way Jesus came into this world~dressed in our worldly clothes, speaking our language, becoming one of us, using His hands  as the young person did, to help us get closer to Him.

John 1:1-5 

JESUS--remember who He was
He was one who wept over Jerusalem because of its sins and did not know why he came into the world, He stooped to wash feet, He created and led an angel choir.  He clutched the grass and rock in the garden before the cross in agony over our sins and cried to God If there is no other plan then I will go and do it forever!

How great is that! He is the Resurrection and the Life. 

Then He served breakfast.

19 Days of Believing ~ Tongues

Speaking in tongues, is to speak in other languages that people understand, even with an interpreter the language should be consistently understood by others. 
The Holy Spirit fell in tongues of flame on the disciples to empower them to preach the gospel to all people in their different nationalities and languages.

17 Days of Believing- Providence

Providence....a word to think about, a word that is so up to faith and trust and acceptance of whatever happens to our lives is meant to be. It takes in a lot of attributes as these words imply......
n theology, divine providence, or simply providence, is God's activity in the world. "Divine Providence" (usually capitalized) is also used as a title of God. A distinction is usually made between "general providence", which refers to God's continuous upholding the existence and natural order of the universe, and "special providence", which refers to God's extraordinary intervention in the life of people


This is all theology but in my real life what is providence , what are some evidences that God has looked after me.
my son brings up the fact that we went to the States one time, i was stopped by the law and could have been fined for $800.00, but was only given a warning....whew !!!
Finances are the biggest thing for me and always seem to be in trouble over it...i have had to consolidate lately and after a couple of submissions the loan finally came thru and there was virtually no reason for it to do so.
I had no idea how to decorate the church for campmeeting this weekend and the mess and thinking and not knowing what to do but at the last day God used his nature and we get everything together.  He puts thoughts in our head of what we could use and make.  pictures later!!!

21 Days of Believing--being thankful

Do you believe in being THANKFUL!  So many things to be thankful for...i love what Oprah is doing....sending thank yous around the world
Thank you......
~So i am so thankful most of for a Creator that is the alpha and omega, beginning and end to all things in my life and in this world.  For the mighty power of the protecting angels around us, for the Spirit that speaks and guides every minute and for Jesus who intercedes on our behalf to the Father

~i love old houses and am glad they are around even just to look at
~Thankful for the boundaries of the rivers and oceans, that the flood will go down
~thankful for the fellow who i have been talking to, that he listens, i am thankful that i got to meet him even if only by phone, am thankful that he got in touch with me
~especially the rain that patters on the roof in the silence, watering the garden, causing the birds to sing, melting the snows, bring water for the well, keeping things green, for the fresh smell in the air,
~for understanding, forgiveness, grace,
~for silence and music,
! for the beeping on my stove, at least i know it is still working, i better go move what ever is making it beep!!
~for sleep, warm covers, rice!
WOW A MILLION OTHER THINGS,  I wish you would email a few who ever is looking at this email.  I want to be a believer that being thankful will bring happiness!

22 Days of Believing~ Peace

This dandelion was so huge i had to post it today, do you believe it?  
My Peace i give to you
Peace with God and in the midst of trials
Paul  says in Romans 5:1
There having been justified with God we have peace thru Jesus Christ

Eph 2: 17 
Jesus came and preached peace to those who were far and near
Where do you see yourself--far or near?
are you an enemy of Jesus?
We think by punishing people we can bring them to Christ as Paul says in Acts that he persecuted the people and was very angry  Acts 9 says we are actually persecuting Christ!!
we can only find peace thru talking, reading, praying and confessing our sins to Christ
1 john 2:1
Jesus writes to us so that we won't sin and He is our Advocate before the Father
John 16:33
In Him we can have peace, but in the world we have trouble, but Jesus has overcome the world!!!
Matt 28:20
Only God can give us peace--and lo i am with you always even to the end of the age!!!!

Jesus is love
Jesus gives peace

23 Days of Believing-Prayer

PRAYER this morning is a wonderful thing.  first thing in the morning I think about God who gives me every blessing i can use for that moment, for that day.  The connection we have with the Creator of the universe is instantaneous, accepted and brought before the God who is on the throne!

This reading is wonderful --the Lords Prayer
Also in song by my favorite actor and singer Barbara Striesand

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom,
the power and the glory are yours.
Now and for ever.

We can pray and instantly there is an angel who brings our prayers to Jesus, prays over them and interprets them in language the Father will accept, who in holy communion talks to the trinity and delivers the answers by Spirit and angels and messengers 

And so may you feel free this day to talk to the Father who hears with comfort and hope .....

24 Days of Believing-Baptism

Baptism ~ how can i paint a picture for you the awesome life of a forgiven person given grace by a sinless Being who loves a sinner like me!  Leaning back into the everlasting arms and brought up again with Hope of a life with Him who carries all burdens!  How all water washes away and carries in its streams  the sins of the whole world that settles in the dirt of this earth to be cleansed again.  I come to God in prayer knowing He forgave on the cross and lives again to give me new life every day! I am buried by only One and rise again by One who carries me thru life with One that will give me hope to live in this lonely planet.
God, the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit are three but one in unity and purpose as i want to be,  i cannot do it alone and so the Comforter in the name of the Spirit carries me thru life.
Romans 6:3-6Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.”

Acts 8:35-38 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.”

Two went down into the water, they were buried, representing Christs death, and brought up again, representing the ressurection, to new life, immersing fully in the water.  Jesus was at the age of 33 when he was baptized as we should follow Him in like manner!

Blessings to all who believe!!!

25 Days of Believing-Second Coming

#24 The Second Coming Of Christ

The second coming of Christ is the blessed hope of the church, the grand climax of the gospel. The Savior's coming will be literal, personal, visible and worldwide. When He returns, the righteous dead will be resurrected, and together with the righteous living will be glorified and taken to heaven, but the unrighteous will die. The almost complete fulfillment of most lines of prophecy, together with the present condition of the world, indicates that Christ's coming is imminent. The date and time of that event has not been revealed, and we are therefore exhorted to be ready at all times. Support is found in these Bible passages: Titus 2:13: Hebrews 9:28: John 14:1-3: Acts 1:9-11: Matthew 24:14: Revelation 1:7: Matthew 24:43,44: Matthew 26:64: 1Thessalonians 4:13-18: 1Corinthians 15:51-54: 2Thessalonians 1:7-10 and 2:8: Revelation 14:14-20: Revelation 19:11-21: Matthew 24: Mark 13: Luke 21: 2Timothy 3:1-5: 1Thessalonians 5:1-6

26 Days of Believing--Communion

It is amazing!  I have 15 minutes and have not thought of anything to write yet!! i look at these horses and think how they think when they are friends with a human, they listen and obey, but know the difference between a good and a mean person.
I am baking bread this morning and just popped it into the oven and my thoughts were how thankful i am for bread!-the kind i eat that fills my stomach when i am hungry, and the Bread-Jesus is the bread that fills my life when i am lonely! The Life of my soul.... and the Bread-the Word that gives us hope and guidelines.


And so we  eat the Bread which is part of his body that gives us life, we devour its words and find grace to continue our life, we drink and go thru life to forgive and give grace to others as He did, We wash the feet and be a servant to uplift and bless  and obtain the blessing the Spirit on earth here gives to each of us.

The Water
The Bread
The Blood

will continue this evening.......

John 6:48-58
I am the bread of life.  Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died.  This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat of and not die.  I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.  The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, "how can this man give us his flesh to eat?"  So Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood you have no life in you;  he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.  For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.  He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me and I in him.  This is the bread which came down from heaven, not such as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever."

I Corinthians 5:7
Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened.  For Christ, our paschal lamb, has been sacrificed.

Matthew 26:26-28
Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, "Take, eat; this is my body."  And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, "Drink of it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."

29 Days of Believing ~ Sabbath

Sabbath!  the name itself is restful! and worthy of meditation.....
 A day when we can rest from work, daily chores, remember that the worlds birthday is on that day, enjoy creation, take the time to enjoy inspirational music and reading, a day for family and friends, a day to remember how good God is, for the Spirit to recreate a new frame of mind even amidst the chaos of raising kids, as I very well remember.  The Sabbath gives us a reason to know our beginning and end.  It gives us our time.  A blessing seems to just follow this day.

The Sabbath
Genesis 2:1-3 Click here
Psalms 33:6  By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made. All the host of them by the breath of His mouth
Psalms 33:9 For He spake and it was done, He commanded and it stood fast

Exodus 20

New International Version (NIV)

The Ten Commandments

20 And God spoke all these words:
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
“You shall have no other gods before me.
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand) generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns.  For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
13 “You shall not murder.
14 “You shall not commit adultery.
15 “You shall not steal.
16 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

30 days of Believing ~ God's Plan

You may think that this is a funny title as originally i was going to name it days of Revelation, but to read this book we need to start with the beginning and believe what it says.  it is important to believe or else why read!!  It is right from the Bible, from the mouth of God! who says He is the Way, the Truth, First and Last!
Today is about His Plan to save us from the grip of Satan and bring us to heaven ---
The Love that the whole world tries to explain, and comprehend met with his Son and Spirit to discuss what should be done should the time come when man would sin.  How would they help the people to understand?

The Plan:

Thru words of scripture the prophecy says: "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." Genesis 3:15.

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour." 1 Peter 5:8.
another verse:"I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee," was the word of Jehovah to His servant; "and will put My words in His mouth; and He shall speak unto them all that I shall command Him." Deuteronomy 18:15, 18.

The Sanctuary and Sacrificial ceremonies pointed forward to a special people that would imitate the saving grace for each person and be ready for the time Christ would come the first and second time to take the people who would follow Him to heaven.
Matthew and the gospels brings us  Baby Jesus to come to earth, grow up and live as an example for us, then in death thru the Crucifixion and rising to Life on the third day prove to the world He is the conqueror of life and death and He is the only Master of the Universe.

Jesus says, "I have loved you with an everlasting love." Jeremiah 31: ... (Psalm 103; Psalm 147:3; Matt 19:2; John 5:21; Eph 4:15; 2Pet 3:18) ...“I come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly.”- the words of Jesus in. John 10:1

31 Days of Believing

As you come on this Journey with me, traveling down the roads of time and into the future, say a little PRAYER with me for the truth to be known, accepted,  that we can be assured of the grace that for all these years God has offered each one of us.

Are you READY:

Genesis~ God has created a garden in which He planted foods and animals of every kind on a world that was formed in six days, weather was predictable and perfect for the creation of man and woman made in the image of their creator.  Characteristics that represented one another. He gave creation every seventh day to rest from work,  reconnect with Him.
 UNTIL - in one moment it was wiped  away by the presence of one who wanted to destroy every living representation of God.  Satan was created.  Angels and cherubs,  every living thing had the breath of a God who gave his infinitous love to each thing.  Every act of patience, forgiveness, yes -annihilation of false representations,  grace, sacrifice expressed the love He had for his workmanship, even Satan himself.

...and it was good~it was good!  and it will be again when He comes the second time to take us all home to where we began and to His creation in the beginning before sin.

read Genesis
