There is a big list of things I believe. But what is more important than that is what is true. I believe the Bible is true. I believe God is truth and He wrote everything we need to know in the Bible. I believe it is difinitive and unapologetic and stands and defends itself unquestionably and is our greatest tool for life, instruction, correction and battle (defense and offence). Thus, I believe every word in it is correct and true and gives us everything we need for salvation and eternal life with God in heaven through the saving power of Jesus Christ, the true Messiah and only means of salvation from sin and evil. I believe prayer, faith and contrition bring us to direct audience with Almighty God who loves us and wants to have a personal relationship with us. And that is it. I used to have many opinions, but God has lined them up with His truth, thanks and praise be to God!!! His is the opinion which matters because it n is true and perfect and holy. Praise God Almighty!!! Praise my Heavenly Father, Maker of heaven and earth and all that we see or know! May His name be lifted up! May His light cut through the darkness! May His truth set us all free! May those He made love Him and choose salvation! ❤❤❤
Missing my walk ended up being a good thing. Got some sweet time drawing with my daughter and a good talk with my son. And had some great time talking to the Lord Jesus Christ, my very best friend and only Savior, and doing art through quilting, mowing (got rained out yesterday), going to IHOP with my family for brunch, measuring out the back porch with my hubby and planning for them to start working on making a concrete slap patio a sunroom complete with hot tub. I am not sure how this day could have been better. And the most beautiful part of the day was that it was an answer to prayer. I have had several really difficult days, horrible even at times, hard days, ugly even in moments. So I talked to Jesus, my Heavenly Father, about this. I asked Him to help. I was not sure how exactly, but He knows my heart and what I need even before I ask Him. And He gave me a very good day today, a happy husband, a good daughter, a happy son, a wonderful day. This is how good God is and how wonderful it is to have such a beautiful personal relationship with Jesus. He is so much more than my Savior who died and arose to give me a way to be saved and assured of heaven, but He walks and talks with me as I humbly pray, He is my best friend, my confidant, my comforter, the peace and joy and love in my soul. I so honored that He loves me. I am so honored to be His!! ❤❤❤
We who are saved are covered by the blood of Jesus. How it is supposed to work is that we are sinless because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Messiah the moment we humbly accept Him as our Savior. Then we ask Him to forgive our sins and poof, they are forgiven. God is very generous and full of grace. Then, we stay close to Him in humble prayer and Bible reading and worship and living and working for Him and His glory and direction. If we sin then, we go back to God and ask forgiveness. We are covered. Amazing grace!!! It is our job, though, to try not to sin, turn away from doing things that sadden the heart of our Heavenly Father. He gives us ready forgiveness but we need to do n our part. He sure is good to us and His eternal rewards are so worth it. ❤
Our hope is Jesus Christ. Our example is Jesus Christ. Our peace and joy are in relationship with Jesus. Our reason for worship and purpose is Jesus Christ. He is our focus, our eternal future, our strength now, our everything. Jesus is most important of all in existence. Without Him, we perish and very soon for He is coming back for we who are faithful to Him soon. Jesus is our salvation, our life, our comfort, our light and truth. He is the way of love and worth celebrating all the time from now into eternity. Cling to Him. Praise Jesus Christ!!
Where there is a human being on this planet in this condition, there is a heart within that person struggling against impurity. It can be subtle like thinking too much of household upkeep to as damaging as harboring hate to commit a crime against another or self and any possible scenario between. Most of the time an excess of pride and thus selfish thinking, considering one’s self way too highly, is the greatest purity harmed because things are justified such as wanting someone else’s things or looking at things we should not or pampering yourself with monies allocated for missions or whatever. And we get here to the point. Jesus Christ is catching away the true, pure of heart Christians on this planet probably pretty soon here. There will be a catching up and we will be removed from this planet so we don’t have to go through the horrors of the tribulation. Those Christians impure of heart or lukewarm or lazy in their walk or relationship with Jesus Christ will have to go through the horrible tribulation to purify themselves and prove they choose God. I do not want that and certainly don’t want hell in my eternal future, so I want a pure heart and passionate walk and relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I sure bet you do to. So how do we do that? From my viewpoint, deprivation and humility, constant prayer with fastinh, Bible reading, and loving/serving people in your path every time you meet them. That is it. I say “deprivation” because that is how rich Americans would see letting go of luxuries that distract such as idols, money, fancy things, salon and spa appointments, social media and tech, most movies and tv shows, most news, porn, drugs, alcohol, whatever distracts and has been more time consuming and attention enrapturing than God and worshipping Him and your relationship with Him. The Bible is truth. Everything written in it is truth. It has happened or will happen. We must be pure and strong in faith and action and purity of heart and encourage others to be also. I really want everyone saved and so does God in His great love and grace! Praise God! Fall back in love with Him or just deepen your love for Him and throw distractions away. Be ready with me, might be today or in a few years but I have a saying on my fridge: “Jesus is coming for me today… unless He doesn’t.” It is better today day be safe than sorry when the stakes are so high. And God is so amazing and worthy and loving Him as He loves us is so wonderful! You can not go wrong.
When anything happens, good or bad, there is God there with you to thank or reach out to for help. Jesus Christ paid the ransom, paid your fee for not being perfect and when we humbly ask Him, He saves us! God’s grace is enormous!! His love for us is unexplainable. His goodness is unfathomable. And nothing can separate us from His adoption of us when we are saved. We are to use the gifts He purposefully and lovingly gave us for Him!!! So do it. Be saved, do good works for Him, love on Him as He has always loved on you! He and you are an unbeatable team. When you are weakest, He is strongest and nothing is impossible in His provision and care. Today is the day to be His!!!! Yay!!! ❤❤❤
