Slaying Giants

5 Minute Proverb: Slaying Giants
5 Minute Proverb
There is a retailer today and they keep depositing money in the bank, money in the bank, and they keep depositing it. There is an abundance, with them having more than they know what to do with, because of the way they handle their affairs.  

Think about it. You see examples of retailers not doing this in the news right now.

You are slaying giants now in this time. It is all on how you handle your affairs. 
Every time you are acting in a way favorable to God it's like putting money in the bank. The Lord will show you how to manage these times.

 A word fitly spoken is how you manage your affairs. It is like a beautiful table laid before you, it pleases the Lord. Your actions will reflect Jesus.



All glory and honor to my Lord Jesus Christ,
Sherry

What's your relationship status?

What's your relationship status?
MELANIE KRAMER, AOL
What's your relationship status? If you had to post your relationship status with God on Facebook, what would it be?
Are you in a relationship with him? 
What would that relationship look like?

What's your relationship status?

When I first heard of a "relationship with Christ" about a year and a half ago, I wondered what are they talking about? Jump forward a year and a half and I have figured out this dilemma, but I won't write a testimony today. I will save that for another post. Anyway, I prayed about how to write this post, and the Lord told me "walking with God." Enoch and Noah walked with God. When you walk with God you definitely have a relationship with him. The Lord gave this message to Micah too.


O' people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. 
Micah 6:8 

I'm still having trouble with the beginning of this post and the Lord says to me, "Seek first the Lord..."

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all of these things will be given to you as well.
Matthew 6:33 

Jesus is penning love letters to you all of the time! He is watching over you like a protective father. He witnesses your trouble, your heartache, and your pain. Your trouble writing posts. He watches from afar and waits patiently for you to invite Him in. 
What's your relationship status?
He is always watching and witnesses how you treat others. Is it with respect and kindness?  He will notice; if given the opportunity, are you honest. (i.e. David and Bathsheba)

But I, the Lord, search all hearts
and examine secret motives.  
I give all people their due rewards,
according to what their actions deserve.
Jeremiah 17:10

Jesus said, "I tell you the truth,when you did it to one of the 
least of my brothers and sisters , you were doing it to me!"
Matthew 25:40

He is penning letters to you all of the time, you just have to tune in. 
He loves you...what God's love looks like.  
He takes delight in you.
For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.
Psalm 149:4

 He wants to be in a relationship with you as intimate as marriage. As here, in this verse when God is speaking about his people of Israel.

I will make you my wife forever,
showing you righteousness and justice,
unfailing love and compassion.
I will be faithful to you and make you mine,
and you will finally know me as the Lord.
Hosea 2:19-20

In this relationship he will refine your character like silver is refined.
You have tested us, O God;
you have purified us like silver.
Psalm 66:10

Refining is used by God to discipline us. Expect it and accept it.
I have refined you, but not as silver is refined. 
Rather, I have refined you in the furnace of suffering.
Isaiah 48:10

Till he gets out of you the character he wants.

Fire tests the purity of silver and gold,
but the Lord tests the heart.
Proverbs 17:3

He disciplines you and heals you.

"But consider the joys of those corrected by God!
Do not despise the discipline of the Almighty when you sin.
For though he wounds, he also bandages. 
He strikes, but his hands also heal.
Job 5:17-18

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those that love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
Romans 8:28

What's your relationship status?
So, why do you want this relationship?

Don't you realize you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.
Romans 6:16

Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.  So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the spirit control your mind leads you to life and peace. For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God's laws, and it never will.  That's why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God.
Romans 8:5-8

You want to have Christ live in you.

 The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you.
Romans 8:11


God's Mysterious Plan
Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down deep into God's love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, how deep his love is.
May you experience the love of Christ, though it too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
Ephesians 3:17-19

That is what a relationship with Jesus Christ is.

Don't exchange the truth about God for a lie.
                                                                             ~Romans 1:25

True Love

True Love: The Charm of Home
We search after love and all of its trappings.

True Love: The Charm of Home
We look for something beautiful.

True Love: The Charm of Home
We look for something sweet.

True Love: The Charm of Home
We look for something lasting...

but, all of the worldly visions of love will fail you. 


My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. ~Galatians 2:20



This, this is real.

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  This week I shared, What does love look like?

Gianna Jessen: Story of an Abortion Survivor
Here, I normally tell you I will feature the posts I enjoy, but this week I will feature this post with the most views.  I did not enjoy this post.  It made me bawl all the way through it.
I want to give all glory and honor to the Father above for allowing this little infant to live and to give her testimony glorifying Jesus so, that the truth may be know as to what the spirit of evil is.
