I have to give glory to God for anything in me that is good.

When you visit Beckie’s blog you get a real sense of calm…at least I did. I don’t want to sound crazy but Christian’s have a way to bring calm with their faith and it is clear here at Beckie’s blog. Her first post that I stumbled upon was the Meme about “Why I Blog“. It is great to see the reasons people blog and it gives a real insight into the minds of bloggers and why they choose to dedicate time to this way of expression. Nice job Beckie and keep on blogging!

You can be critiqued too at Critique My Blog. Go ahead~you know you want too.

Rules from God

Got this in an email and you may have seen it before, but I wanted to share it.

1. Wake Up !! Decide to have a good day.
“Today is the day the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” Psalms 118:24

2. Dress Up !! The best way to dress up is to put on a smile. A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks. “The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at outward appearance; but the Lord looks at the heart.”
I Samuel 16:7

3 Shut Up!! Say nice things and learn to listen. God gave us two ears and one mouth, so He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking. “He who guards his lips guards his soul.” Proverbs 13:3

4. Stand Up!!… For what you believe in. Stand for something or you will fall for anything.. “Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good…” Galatians 6:9-10

5. Look Up !!… To the Lord.
“I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me.”
Philippians 4:13

6. Reach Up !!… For something higher. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, And He will direct your path.”
Proverbs 3:5-6

7. Lift Up !!… Your Prayers.
“Do not worry about anything;
Instead PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING.”
Philippians 4:6

Remember:

God answers Knee-Mail.

I just saw this video and it just about blew me away! Talk about feeling insignificant! Good thing I’m significant in my Father’s eyes.

Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful that I am on my way out the door (I can walk) to go (I can drive) to a Beth Moore Bible Study (I’m so thankful for Beth’s studies) on Daniel (thanks to a very special friend, neighbor and co-blogger). This has been such an awesome study and in the next few days, I want to share something I read this morning doing my last minute homework!

Not by Might

Music has always been a part of my life. I love lots of different styles but praise and worship music is my absolute favorite! I don’t often listen to any kind but that or contemporary Christian. Yesterday, at bible study, we sang a song that I’d never heard before and I love it. Here are the words:

Not By Might

No not by might
Nor even power
But by Your Spirit, O Lord

Healer of hearts, binder of wounds
Lives that are lost restored
Flow through this land
‘Til every man praises Your name once more.

It’s from the CD Days of Elijah-Worship Songs of Robin Mark. If you’ve never heard it, please get it. I pray it will minister to your spirit as it did mine.

Many years ago when I first became a Christian, a very dear friend told me that she was thankful she could go to the bathroom. This week I want to share my thanks for my five senses…and several other things.

Taste: Psm. 34:8 – “O taste and see that the LORD is good;
How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!” God has provided a bounty of food for us to taste.

Sight: 2 Cor. 5:7 – “for we walk by faith, not by sight–“
and Matt. 5:8 – “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” and by the blood of Jesus, my Lord and Savior, I am made pure in heart! Although I wear glasses, I so thankful for my eyes.

Smell: Gen. 27:27 – in reference to Jacob stealing Esau’s blessing, Isaac says – “…is like the smell of a field which the LORD has blessed;” With Spring approaching, we’ll soon be able to smell God’s creations

Hear: Matt. 10:27 – “What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops.” Whispered in your ear…I can hear God’s whisper!!! And I can hear our granddaughter when she’s unhappy.
John 8:47 – “He who is of God hears the words of God…”

Feel/Touch: Mark 10:13 – “And they were bringing children to Him so that He might touch them;”
1 John 5:18 (Amplified) – “We know [absolutely] that anyone born of God does not [deliberately and knowingly] practice committing sin, but the One Who was begotten of God carefully watches over and protects him [Christ’s divine presence within him preserves him against the evil], and the wicked one does not lay hold (get a grip) on him or touch [him].” WOW! To hold my husband tight and feel his arms around me is such a huge blessing!

I’m also thankful for BibleGateway for offering a Bible reference toolbar I could install on my browser. Although I have several Bibles on my desk, it’s so easy just to go up to the toolbar and type in a word or scripture reference, and … there it is!

Again, I’m thankful to Christine for my new blog look.

Have a blessed day!
