Biblical Truth

"Bible exposition without moral application raises no opposition. It is only when the hearer is made to understand that truth is in conflict with his heart, that resistance sets in. As long as people can hear orthodoxy divorced from life, they will attend and support churches and institutions without objection. On the other other hand, the man who preaches truth and applies it to the lives of his hearers, will feel the nails and the thorns. He will lead a hard life, but a glorious one." -A.W. Tozer

I must be a Christian child,
Gentle, patient, meek, and mild;
Must be honest, simple, true
In my words and actions too.
I must cheerfully obey,
Giving up my will and way;...

Must remember, God can view
All i think, and all I do.
Glad that i can know I try,
Glad that children such as I,
In our feeble ways and small,
Can serve Him who loves us all.

-Amish school verse from "The Riddle of Amish Culture" by Donald Kraybill

I pray that this Palm Sunday is filled with joy for everyone.
I myself, feel just a little bit sad. Palm Sunday means it was the homestretch for Christ. I can imagine him on the donkey, riding into town, and him feeling so sad. Knowing that these same people who poured love and palms at his feet, would so quickly turn against him and deliver him onto torture and death. That saddens me.
Thank God He will rise again, thank God that He DID.

Mark 11:1-26
1And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,

2And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him.

3And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.

4And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.

5And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?

6And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.

7And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.

8And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.

9And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:

10Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.

11And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.

12And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:

13And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.

14And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

15And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;

16And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.

17And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.

18And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.

19And when even was come, he went out of the city.

20And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.

21And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.

22And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

23For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

24Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

25And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

26But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

And above all things, He asked the Father to forgive them. If He can forgive for what happened to Him, surely we can forgive people for things that are minute, compared to what He went through.

To God be the Glory. That usually sums up everything we can be thinking at the moment. If something bad happens in our lives, we pray that God can be glorified through it.
To God be the Glory. When something wonderful happens, we praise God for it. We give Him the glory. Guess which one pertains to me?

Photobucket

I would LOVE to say that something wonderful happened. And rightly I should, because i have two wonderful children, a supportive Church, and good friends. Hey, I even have a husband! lol. ;)

But unfortunately, we face homelessness again. Yep. To God Be the Glory.

We currently live in my dad's apartment. He's engaged (he is a widower), and I was told that I had a year to find a job (I guess housewife is not a job), and find a new place to live. Ok, I could deal with that. A year. Ok.

Last week I was told the date of the wedding is moved up to six months from now.....


Uh, ok Dad, I know you love the woman, but is it worth just throwing away your "family?"....anyway I digress.


So with my husband only working seasonably, and myself unemployed and homeschooling, our situation is a bit daunting to say the least.

So off job hunting I go, and the MOMENT i find a job (God willing), my kids are going to have to go into a private Christian school, which also will be a drain on our resources and of course there is the apartment hunting.

So, if you just happened to think about us, pray for us.

Not that I'm worried....ok, you got me there. I'm just a TAD worried. But I take comfort in Him.

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Matthew 6:25

We will be okay.

To God Be the Glory, In Jesus' Name.

Hi!

Hey ya'll I'm back! It's been a while since you've heard hide or hair from me. ALOT has happened. From Child Services investigating me, to birthdays, my life has been busy. But busy in a good way. I will tell the details soon, but first I want to clean up this place a little bit. Cobwebs seem to be forming along the edges of my sidebar...
