“The Only One”

portugal-3029665_1920

Scripture reference;

10 For whoever keeps the whole Law but stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of [breaking] all of it. 11 For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but you murder, you have become [f]guilty of transgressing the [entire] Law.” James 2:10-11 AMP

10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” Romans 3:10-12 KJV

Am I the only one who swallows hard
And feels insecure whenever
I read commentaries
On certain passages of scripture?

cat-2031337_1920

Am I the only one
Who resorts to posturing
….And even charming
In order to get the upper hand
When the Lord taught us to pray
“Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done.”?

deer-3764290_1920

Am I the only one
Who though guilty of so much,
Am still so drawn to the Lord
That I am only at peace
When I am reading scripture,
Singing hymns, and praying quietly?

Is it just me
Or is it convicting in here?

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7 KJV

Is it just me
Or is it comforting in here, too?

“Guidance”

Scripture reference;

“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.”  Isaiah 30:21 KJV

 

12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:12-13 KJV

 

I have a precious friend. Her name is Faith. She is old enough to be my mother. We first met in 1999. At that time my son was eleven years old, my daughter was five and I was 32.

She has been my “Titus Woman”*.

It all started at a ladies luncheon in the spring of that year. She and an elderly lady needed a ride home. We dropped the other lady off at her own home in town. and then continued on to Faith’s home which was about a 20 minute drive from there.

It has been my experience that when it comes to the Family of God, that genuine “assembling”…(see John 4:19-26) is usually not contrived, but rather “foreordained”.

When our heart is ready He admonishes us that there is something He requires, and then He provides the means.

Faith was confident of that truth when we met, but  many years passed before I was fully persuaded.

Yesterday we assembled again. She read some quotes of Frances J. Roberts. I had never heard of her. They were just wonderful! Earlier today I couldn’t wait to look her up online. I found the following quote. I hope it blesses you.

 

“His desire to bless you goes infinitely beyond your own personal desire to secure His blessing. There is always peace in His presence. Do not disturb this by anxiety to know what is in store for tomorrow. Out of the very tranquility of worship will be born the guidance you need.”

Older women similarly are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor addicted to much wine, teaching what is right and good, so that they may encourage the young women to tenderly love their husbands and their children, to be sensible, pure, makers of a home [where God is honored], good-natured, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored. Titus 2:3 AMP

Just Imagine

He has so much insight…a really great blog!

Unshakable Hope

I saw the movie, “ICanOnlyImagine” the other night. It’s a great biographical story about salvation and forgiveness. Writing movie reviews is not my thing, but I highly recommend this movie.

After seeing the movie, I began thinking about the title of the song and the movie, “ICanOnlyImagine. Bart Millard, the man who wrote the song and the one that the movie is about, was imagining his dad in heaven as he was writing the song.

I started thinking about the imagination, especially when it comes to heaven and eternity.

What is the imagination?

(It’s) “the ability to form a mental image of something that is not perceived through the five senses. It is the ability of the mind to build mental scenes…”

The imaginaryrealm is not just the stuff of kids; for good or for evil, our

Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears[a] we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.” 1 John 3:2-3 ESV
