Good Great Saturday Morning/Afternoon to you beloved.  My apologies for my posting disappearance from this blog. I’ve been in deep study and thought again with the OT(Old Testament), which was one of my resolutions for this New Year, to complete a book for my grandkids about what grandma thinks and believes about God, as my papaw did for I without him knowing it. I inherited a lot of his books and writings after his death.  I hope to share with you a series about people of the OT and lessons I learned from their behavioral actions. I hope you enjoy it, and as I always say, you may not agree,and that is fine. I just ask that you keep in mind that these are my thoughts revealed to me by none other than the Holy Spirit, Himself, for my understanding of the Lord. Thank you Jesus!

40 Days Journey – Your Heartfelt Prayers Are Needed

Great Evening Beloved Readers,

I am going to partake on a journey through the books of Proverbs, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, and Nahum for the next 40 days. These are the books the Holy Spirit placed in my heart just now, to search for answers concerning self knowing and doing the Lord’s will. I am doing so in the name of Jesus in honor of this Lenten season and I shall not fail. It’s a first for me to celebrate the full Lenten season.

I am asking that you who follow this blog, keep me lifted up in prayer every morning, noon, and night, please, please. There is a fire and joy burning inside of me that needs to surface for me to completely be on accord with the Lord. I’ve kept His glory buried deep within and now it is time for the unveiling to begin. The Lord has told me since last September, to prepare myself, to move UP, and show that His glory is with me, as He did with Moses. I am ready to move.  I am ready to glorify His name.  I’m just ready!  We can do it!  10… 9… 2… 1 Blast off!   Many thanks to my brother in Christ W.H. for such a spiritual insight today. Letting it go and letting God. He has 40 days, LOL.  God bless you forever and ever. 

With that being said, I won’t be posting until the end of April, Lord willing.

Feel free to email me words of encouragement anytime or leave a note here. I think it is listed somewhere on this site.  Please read this story and enjoy the message …”you just never get too old to enjoy life and to pray!”

 http://www.childrenstorytales.com/toot-toot-the-little-red-caboose/

Please pray the prayer below for me. Get to It! (Command)  :-)

Philippians 1: 9-11 – And this is my prayer: that your {Shelia’s} love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you { she } may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christto the glory and praise of God. – Amen, Bless the Lord!

Leviticus 19:16-18 

 You shall not go about as a talebearer among your people; nor shall you take a stand against the life of your neighbor: I am the Lord. ‘You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him. You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.

Amazing finds below.  Regardless of skin color, we who are Christians are all looking for the One and Same Christ to return. That leaves me to ponder why is there still division between races as a Christian?  Why are there still predominately black and predominately white churches in existence? I’ll keep pondering! And though many find it hard to believe, the bible also tells of more than one race of people in existence. One would think the Tower of Babel is still standing smack dab in the middle of New York or Washington D.C.  Know the Word!

 

Pet Peeve - I don’t know who started labeling blacks as “African American”.  Perhaps it came from inside the black community. I have not a clue to be honest. I just found it absurd the first time I saw or heard of the labeling.  Anyone with common sense and knowledge would know that there are White Africans as well who are also Americans. Do they have the option of selecting “Black or African American” on manmade generated forms?  I always chose “Other” and write Human Christian beside it.  Who’s  Who? What business is it to anyone as to what race I am of? It is the human race. Duh!   Again, Know the Word!  What gives? I’d rather be labeled as a Christian devoid of any ethnicity.   Hmmm? You can call me “my people”  :-)

2 Chronicles 7:14 - If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Be Ready!  Be Ready! Be Ready!  Don’t get Ready!  Be Ready!

Rain-One of God’s Many Treasures – My Thoughts

Deuteronomy 32:1-3 – Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: because I will publish the name of the Lord: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.

Last night, there were heavy rain and thunderstorms with high winds in my area. I am a thunderstorm lover, rain, wind, tornadoes, hurricanes, you name it, I love it because it reminds me of how powerful God is.  Although storms can be damaging, they are so beautiful.  Did you know that storms produce both faith and fear within us? As for me, storms give me more faith to move forward, without looking back. They said even the wind and the sea (water) obey Him…Huh?  Matthew 8:23-27-And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.  And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.  And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.  And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.  But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

I often associate certain rains with a joyful cleansing from heaven for a beloved saint or child of God’s who was just buried. The thought of a friend’s mother, came to mind when I heard a loud thunder.  Please pray for my friend, she is not taking the death to well. The scent of geraniums and smoky lavender filled my room and a smile came across my heart, and I heard the words “I am pleased, just rest and wait.”  I was about to bundle up and read about Noah before nodding. Ring! Ring! It’s 9:45 p.m.  My grandson Elijah called, and said “Grandma, our lights went out, are yours out?”  I told him “no, get your flashlights I gave you and pray.”  He said, “Ok, but I called you first and I wanted to tell you we love you.”  Emanuel was in the background saying “ask her to come over here”, while their mom was yelling in the background “get off the phone, go to bed, it is lightning.”  I told them to get to sleep because the Lord wants them to rest so that they could go to school tomorrow. We both said “I love you” before hanging up.  I am glad the Lord has instilled in them through my actions, that they can rely on their grandmother for protection and comfort, if from no one else on earth. TYHS!  :-)  

2/21/14- It is Friday morning, I woke up (PTL) and the sun was shining brightly and the weather was nice after such a horrific storm all night til the wee morning hours.  I began to sing…There’s got to be rain in your life by Dorothy Norwood.  Thank you Holy Spirit for ministering to me via that song! I’ve got to learn how to play that song on guitar. Help!

My heart was thinking about rain and I was led to write a post about this majestic element of God.  I could be wrong too, but rain is spoken about more in the OT than the NT, but that’s because I live and breathe the OT and I love Jesus.  This verse came to mind Matthew 5: 45-That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Most of us look at rain as an inconvenience. Rain can cause a change in plans and attitudes.  It can cause fear and joy. It is necessary for things to grow. It is the number one chemistry element H20 used to put out fires and is used for the building up of many structures. Rain can replenish oceans, ponds, and seas. Rain can cause destruction by rising into a heavy flood washing away graves, homes, trees, buildings, remove paved roads, and can cause death.  I look at RAIN as a way for us to reevaluate things in our lives. Read Genesis 6-9. I think of this as being one of the most important events in the bible that make us aware of how powerful God really is. He said I AM, Amen.

Matthew 7:25-27- And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it 

Oh yeah!  Rain saves lives too. Look here… Isaiah 55:10 – For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

Rain opens the eyes and hearts of many and can cause one to respect the Lord and His will. See here… Samuel 12:17-18- Is it not wheat harvest to day? I will call unto the LORD, and he shall send thunder and rain; that ye may perceive and see that your wickedness is great, which ye have done in the sight of the LORD, in asking you a king. So Samuel called unto the LORD; and the LORD sent thunder and rain that day: and all the people greatly feared the LORD and Samuel.

Now let’s take a look at a few more bible verses about rain, apply them to your life, and let the verses minister to you:

Genesis 7:4 – For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

Isaiah 45:8 -Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.

Jeremiah 5:24 – Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.

Amos 4:7 – And also I have withholden the rain from you, when [there were] yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered. 

Hebrews 6:4-8 -For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, and have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, if they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:  but that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. (Rain as Renewal)

Psalm 68:8-9 -the earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel. Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.

Jeremiah 10:13- When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.

Deuteronomy 28:12 -The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.

Acts 14:17-Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.

1 Kings 8:35-36-When heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou afflictest them: Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, that thou teach them the good way wherein they should walk, and give rain upon thy land, which thou hast given to thy people for an inheritance.

Genesis 9:14-16 – And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. (Rain is even part of His promise. RAINBOW…get it?)

It’s just water, you say.  Think again. As we go about in our busy day-to-day lives, do we ever stop to think about how powerful and essential RAIN is?  It is the first element used by God to make man take notice of His power.  Correct me if I am wrong in that thought. Rain comes and goes according to the Word of God. Scripture tells us that RAIN is one of the Lord’s many treasures.  It is a gift from God. To end this, I ask that each and every one of us deeply think about the significance RAIN (i.e. tears, water, snow, floods, storms, death, joy, feeling lost, etc.) plays in our lives, whether it is the lack of or an abundance of it in our daily lives. What does your Doppler Storm Radar look like?  Look nigh to Him who controls ALL Rain.

For it is so in the bible that even Jesus Wept!

Some Days I eat the bear – Other Days the bear eats you

A few years ago, Billy Collins wrote a masterpiece called “Some Days.” Some Days you eat the bear and other days the bear eats you is Collin’s poetic explanation of the piece. In it he asks the question:

“How would you like it if you never knew from one day to the next if you were going to spend it striding around like a vivid god, your shoulders in the clouds, or sitting down there amidst the wallpaper, staring straight ahead with your little plastic face?”

In essence, what he is saying is, Some Days you are at the top of your game – other days you are not. Some Days, as a writer, speaker, singer, preacher, parent, a Christian, leader, professional, athlete – you are on top of the world, but other days you are dull, uninspired, bored, creatively challenged, down, depressed – at a wall.

Quotes I Love About Respect

Guten Abend Beloved! I shall share a few quick thoughts of mine before presenting the quotes. I decided to research some quotes about RESPECT for one of my workshop presentations. I have learned over many years that RESPECT is a mixture of genuine love and truth and that my life is no more important or less than another persons life. I’ve seen so less of it these last 30 something years and the lack of RESPECT towards God, self, others, and things have become worse. Disrespect is no longer kept on the DL (Down Low) by many Christians.  It can been seen as clear as spilt dark oil upon dark waters and the moon doesn’t even have to be shining upon the waters.  Now that’s very reflective!

A lack of RESPECT appears to be one of the reasons, if not the main reason, that people in the workplace, in church, in families, and in relationships fail to get along, fail to experience joy, fail to prosper and grow, fail to communicate effectively, fail to be on one accordance in loving and doing for one another, and basically fail in life goals planned for one by God Almighty. People avoid even greeting certain people while in church. Over the years, I have witnessed people in a church sanctuary turn 1 aisle into a 4-way emergency pew exit. They will look directly at a person and skedaddle off in another direction to avoid speaking to that person, or start talking to a person closest to them that they normally sit by. And… they even have the audacity to think that it goes unnoticed by others and the avoided person.  It’s a sure sign of disrespect towards others as a Christian while at church. I don’t like reading or seeing such signs of disrespect especially in the church realm.

Let’s go deeper…. A person that does this in church is also showing a lack of reverence for God in a place of worship. Now that’s sad. What’s even more sad, is that people (Christian or Not) inside the church still don’t comprehend that God is watching their actions INSIDE His house of worship. My advice to those who do such an evil deed in church need to realign their heart with God and communicate with the person they are avoiding about any issue(s) that makes them avoid speaking to them. Disrespect among Christians causes ground for Division.  (yeah something similar to that which causes ground for a divorce)  Listen closely….There is only 1 aisle to the Kingdom of  God and it is through Jesus Christ. I know…The Truth Stings and Saves!

What’s that idiom?  A house divided against ITSELF cannot stand… easily translated into Everyone involved must unify and function together or it will not work outBeloved, have we not yet learned as humans, that even the apple respects the worm and the cow jumped over the moon while the dish ran away with the spoon?  Think about it!

A Respectful Apple

That’s all that I have to say on the matter, and to back up my thoughts, I ask that you meditate on this bible verse of which you’ll have to figure out with deep thought and conviction on your own why it is referenced. TYHS! 

Genesis 1:28 – Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

“What is the quality of your intent? Certain people have a way of saying things that shake us at the core. Even when the words do not seem harsh or offensive, the impact is shattering. What we could be experiencing is the intent behind the words. When we intend to do good, we do. When we intend to do harm, it happens. What each of us must come to realize is that our intent always comes through. We cannot sugarcoat the feelings in our heart of hearts. The emotion is the energy that motivates. We cannot ignore what we really want to create. We should be honest and do it the way we feel it. What we owe to ourselves and everyone around is to examine the reasons of our true intent. My intent will be evident in the results.” – Thurgood Marshall

Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
