Love

Deuteronomy 30:6: And the LORD your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your offspring, so that you will love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live. (ESV)

rose-402093_640The heart is a delicate part of the human being, and by that we are not talking about the physical heart, but the metaphysical one, the core of our being, our personality. It is the place from where the rhythm of our lives flows.

The bible says we should guard our heart with all diligence because out of it flows the issue of life (Proverbs 4:23). The point is, you cannot control what flows from your heart, but you can control what flows to it, in the influences you subject it to.

Paul warned that evil influences corrupt good manners (1Corinthians 15:33). And he was talking to believers. He was…

Psalm 89 Remembering the Covenant with David, and Sorrow for Lost Blessings

Psalm 89

New King James Version (NKJV)

A Contemplation[a] of Ethan the Ezrahite.

89 I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever;
With my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.
For I have said, “Mercy shall be built up forever;
Your faithfulness You shall establish in the very heavens.”

“I have made a covenant with My chosen,
I have sworn to My servant David:
‘Your seed I will establish forever,
And build up your throne to all generations.’” Selah

And the heavens will praise Your wonders, O Lord;
Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the saints.
For who in the heavens can be compared to the Lord?
Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened to theLord?
God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints,
And to be held in reverence by all those around Him.
Lord God of hosts,
Who is mighty like You, O Lord?
Your faithfulness also surrounds You.
You rule the raging of the sea;
When its waves rise, You still them.
10 You have broken Rahab in pieces, as one who is slain;
You have scattered Your enemies with Your mighty arm.

11 The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours;
The world and all its fullness, You have founded them.
12 The north and the south, You have created them;
Tabor and Hermon rejoice in Your name.
13 You have a mighty arm;
Strong is Your hand, and high is Your right hand.
14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne;
Mercy and truth go before Your face.
15 Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!
They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.
16 In Your name they rejoice all day long,
And in Your righteousness they are exalted.
17 For You are the glory of their strength,
And in Your favor our horn is exalted.
18 For our shield belongs to the Lord,
And our king to the Holy One of Israel.

19 Then You spoke in a vision to Your holy one,[b]
And said: “I have given help to one who is mighty;
I have exalted one chosen from the people.
20 I have found My servant David;
With My holy oil I have anointed him,
21 With whom My hand shall be established;
Also My arm shall strengthen him.
22 The enemy shall not outwit him,
Nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
23 I will beat down his foes before his face,
And plague those who hate him.

24 “But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him,
And in My name his horn shall be exalted.
25 Also I will set his hand over the sea,
And his right hand over the rivers.
26 He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father,
My God, and the rock of my salvation.’
27 Also I will make him My firstborn,
The highest of the kings of the earth.
28 My mercy I will keep for him forever,
And My covenant shall stand firm with him.
29 His seed also I will make to endure forever,
And his throne as the days of heaven.

30 “If his sons forsake My law
And do not walk in My judgments,
31 If they break My statutes
And do not keep My commandments,
32 Then I will punish their transgression with the rod,
And their iniquity with stripes.
33 Nevertheless My lovingkindness I will not utterly take from him,
Nor allow My faithfulness to fail.
34 My covenant I will not break,
Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.
35 Once I have sworn by My holiness;
I will not lie to David:
36 His seed shall endure forever,
And his throne as the sun before Me;
37 It shall be established forever like the moon,
Even like the faithful witness in the sky.” Selah

38 But You have cast off and abhorred,
You have been furious with Your anointed.
39 You have renounced the covenant of Your servant;
You have profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.
40 You have broken down all his hedges;
You have brought his strongholds to ruin.
41 All who pass by the way plunder him;
He is a reproach to his neighbors.
42 You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries;
You have made all his enemies rejoice.
43 You have also turned back the edge of his sword,
And have not sustained him in the battle.
44 You have made his glory cease,
And cast his throne down to the ground.
45 The days of his youth You have shortened;
You have covered him with shame. Selah

46 How long, Lord?
Will You hide Yourself forever?
Will Your wrath burn like fire?
47 Remember how short my time is;
For what futility have You created all the children of men?
48 What man can live and not see death?
Can he deliver his life from the power of the grave?Selah

49 Lord, where are Your former lovingkindnesses,
Which You swore to David in Your truth?
50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of Your servants—
How I bear in my bosom the reproach of all the many peoples,
51 With which Your enemies have reproached, O Lord,
With which they have reproached the footsteps of Your anointed.

52 Blessed be the Lord forevermore!
Amen and Amen.

It’s a Matter of Perception

Deeply Rooted in Him

Image

 

I took this photo of a footprint in the sand at the beach a week ago. When I went back and looked at it, instead of looking like an impression of a footprint in the sand, it looked more like a raised footprint built up in the sand. I am not a photographer and can’t explain why it looks so different in the picture than it did in person. It is all about perception.

How often is our perception of a person or a situation skewed by our personal perspective? Too often we look at a person or situation and decide why someone acted a particular way or why a situation turned out a specific way. When we do so, we are ascribing motives and variables than may not exist and our perception may be a bit off.

What if instead of looking for people’s motives, we look at…

Thoughts and Sharing Current events

Just thought I would talk a little about what I have been up to lately and share a little of my own thoughts.  Much of my time is being spent trying to list things on the internet to sell.  I have been working on a  little web site and am now adding things to it for sell. After much thought I decided to just put things in my stores on Etsy, and Bonanza and just link the items in on my page.
I am not a web master and had to find an easy and free wysiwyg editor to work with which is truly easier said than done. And I know nothing about CSS and can not even figure out how to make a style sheet.  The point here is that one gains a new respect for people who build web sites when they pursue a project of this sort.
My main reason for the web page is that people are always asking me where I list my things.  I have more than one place and with the web page I can share all of those places at one time.  Seems like a great idea anyway!  The problem is that it is very time consuming and trying to juggle buiding the web site and accomplishing the other things that I have to do in my life is difficult to say the least.  And yes I am saying that with a smile on my face.
It is a challenge and one that I hope I can accomplish.  Slowly I am adding some things to my stores and I do mean slowly. Hopefully as I get going I will gain momentum and get things listed faster.  When I look around on the web and see stores that have 100’s and thousands of items I think; “Wow! These people have put a lot into that.  I bet they had help.”  It is a lot to do by yourself and involves a lot more than people understand.  I am the photographer, book keeper, lister, web page builder, writer, buyer, seller, mail clerk, bargain finder, social media person, computer operator, and then on top of that wife, chief cook and bottle washer, and overall household manager. I guess one might say I am a multi tasker.  Not a very good one either!
One thing I know for sure is this.  If it were not for my relationship with Jesus I would go completely stark raving mad. A lot of things get put off til tomorrow that I thought I might get done today. Many things sit on the back burner for the day when I might be able to get to them. Sometimes I tend to put God on the back burner and then I remember that He belongs front and center, in my heart and Lord of my life.
It is when I keep Him there that things don’t seem so tough.  You see He carries me most of the time.  When I get too tired to walk He tells me everything is going to be ok.  This is just a season and soon it will all be in the past and I will be able to breath a sigh of relief and know that at least I tried to do what I was supposed to do.
There have been times in my life that were much tougher than now. A time when I had no place to call home, times when freedom was a dream, times of hunger, fear for my life,  loneliness, despair, heartache and deep depression.  Grateful doesn’t even begin to express the way I feel about my life at this present time.  Blessed is more like it, although I know that through it all and because of it all I have been blessed.
Many things that might have been tragic in my life have been turned around for the good by an Almighty God that loved me and lifted me up no matter the situation. Many times it happened  in ways that I would not have chosen but God’s ways are higher than mine and He chose the way that would teach me a lesson that I would never forget.  I know He was right and am truly grateful for it.  Everything that I have gone through in my life serves a higher purpose. I can understand and empathize with others that have gone through similar situations or may be going through them now.  I am not one to judge people because when I point one finger at them there are 3 pointing back at me.
Yes everything happens for a reason and this is all just a season soon to pass.  We are in a day and age when any moment the Rapture may take place. Many terrible things are happening in the world what with all the active volcanoes, the earthquakes, floods, pestilence, disease, violence, wars and rumors of wars and signs in the heavens that tell us that the time is near. This Day of Grace is drawing to an end.  My heart is heavy for those that are lost or those that scoff at God. Those that call what is evil good and profane the Word of God to make a mockery of Him.  My hope is in God and it is in Him alone that we can find peace, salvation, and the safety and security that we really need.  An eternal security like none that anyone else can offer us is to be had if we have Jesus as Lord of our life!
Ask Jesus to be Lord of your life today. You will never regret it because His yoke is easy and His burden is light.  There is only one way to enter the gates of heaven and Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Light!  He is the Lamb of God that was slain for the sins of the World. Without Him there is no hope. Without Him all would perish.

The meaning of numbers in the Bible

Excerpt:

An essential key to understanding the design of God’s Word is through the meaning of Biblical numbers. The connections and patterns of numerals, when we search them out and understand them, reveal the handiwork of God. Although the arrangement of some is obvious, others are not and require in-depth Bible study. The Biblical numbers found do not exist by random chance but by design. Each one has a particular meaning and symbolism attached to it by our Creator.

Those who research the Bible have discovered patterns in the occurrences and frequency of certain Hebrew and Greek words. These offer additional proof that God inspired every word used in the book that boldly proclaims to reveal His will, plan, and purpose for man. God challenges us through Isaiah that HE ALONE is Creator:

“‘To whom then will you compare Me, or who is My equal?’ says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold, who has created these things, who brings out their host by number.” (Isaiah 40:25, The Holy Bible in Its Original Order)
