There is sure nothing wrong with a good program, or good tradition, or good anything; however, when these become the point we have a problem.

Life is fragile for all of us sometimes, and sometimes we all need somebody to nurse us along either physically or spiritually. Great thoughts here from Julie.

You may recall that yesterday’s post was born from finding a dead butterfly
in the yard.
Perhaps an odd starting point, but who am I to question inspiration.
It was a post based on the idea of fragility…
and of how our lives are laced with such a delicate underpinning…
despite our living life to the contrary.
This was not to imply that we are to live life by walking around as if we were
inside of some sort of delicate glass bubble…encouraging us to be oh so careful
and walk around as if at any moment the sky would be falling on our heads.
Rather it was a post to remind us all that life on this earth is fleeting.
For some of us this life is longer than it is for others…

This post is out of the norm for me. I prefer to stay with teaching the Word but I feel that a little edifying is needed. I sense weariness within the Body of Christ and just want to offer a bit of encouragement.
To begin, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I have been tempted on numerous occasions to quit. “Quit what?” You might ask. Well… to quit blogging, to quit teaching the Word, to quit caring about living holy and pure before the Lord… to just quit life and live the remainder of my life as a hermit out in the woods away from people.

Work is NOT a dirty word. Our Lord made us to work, in Him and for Him. Comments closed here, so head over and share your thoughts. Blessings and enjoy!
I am passionate about faith, life, and work.
Throughout my journey, God has provided me with different work. While I did not always see it at the time, God was at work, weaving His plan in my life. Work is an important concept, discussed often in the Bible.
Early in Genesis, Scripture reveals work as part of the Lord’s created order in the World. Work is not a result of the Fall, for the concept of tending the garden and cultivating the Earth is mentioned in advance of the Fall in Genesis, Chapter 2.
Genesis 2:5 Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the LORD God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground (NIV).

The path is narrow to eternal life, but that NEVER means we all cannot have it. A great post here on Salvation by Desiray. Comments closed here, so head over and share your thoughts. Blessings and enjoy!
Titus 3:5 says” He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
The word “Salvation” appears in the King James bible 164 times, that’s a lot of times. What is salvation and why are some people afraid of it? I am not one to argue over God’s word and so I am not going to start today. Some of you might disagree and you are entitled to your opinion. Let’s go to scripture and see that the word of God says, shall we?

- Job 33:4 ESV
The Spirit of God has made me,
and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
- Psalm 31:6-7 MSG
I hate all this silly religion, but you, God, I trust. I’m leaping and singing in the circle of your love; you saw my pain, you disarmed my tormentors, You didn’t leave me in their clutches but gave me room to breathe.
- Psalm 34:1-4 MSG
I bless God every chance I get;
my lungs expand with his praise.
2 I live and breathe God;
if things aren’t going well, hear this and be happy:
3 Join me in spreading the news;
together let’s get the word out.
4 God met me more than halfway,
he freed me from my anxious fears.

In a time of great stress and contention all around us, hear is some great encouragement from my good blogging friend, Kathy. Also, some great art work by her husband Paul.
The world is changing every day and we just string along?
We follow like a herd of sheep who can’t tell right from wrong,
We listen to the experts, believing every word,
We think they know what’s best for us, but still our thoughts are blurred,
The well known politicians do naught but rant and rave,
But they’re no better than us, their words will never save,
A struggling population from an eternal grave,
We listen to the media, we listen to our boss.
We follow their direction, but still we will get lost,
We trust that all will tell the truth, our faith will quickly fade,
There will be broken promises, and none can make the grade,
Where do we turn when all seems lost, when things just don’t make sense,
There’s only One we can believe to give full…

After a bit of an absence, here we have another great post here from Karina’s Thought. Blessings and enjoy!
Hello my dear readers! I am happy could come back to the blog with my own post and I am grateful to God in the middle of my busyness this evening I could write something to share.
A few days ago one of my business friends invited me to visit her new house. She built a new big and luxury house that surrounded by thick and high wall. I felt a bit weirdness when saw the house from the outside; the house looks more like a fortress. My husband jokingly said, “Maybe this wall could only be destroyed by missiles. Or we must march around for seven days like Jericho wall”
I smiled but suddenly remembered about the story of Jericho wall (Joshua 6:1-27). As we all know the Jericho wall destructed by the irrational and unique ways. After spending forty difficult years wandering in the desert of Sinai, they came to the eastern banks of the Jordan to take the Promise Land and they were facing first obstacle. The City of Jericho! Jericho city was surrounded by virtually impregnable thick massive stone. But Jericho wall was successfully destructed (seemingly) by a foolish strategy. This was a strategy that given by God to Joshua: All men of war and seven priests that bear seven trumpets of rams before the ark must around the city once a day for six days. On the seventh day they shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets. When the sound of trumpets sounded they must shout with a great shout and the wall will fall down flat. (Joshua 6:3-5) Like most war stories, normally a giant fortress could be destructed only by enormous military force with all its weapons. But in fact, Jericho wall destructed not by military strategy and force but by beyond the logic supernatural power…..Read the rest of the post here: Break The Wall
