Bethlehem in Judah….yes you know all about this little place I am sure! At the very least, you know the MOST important fact about it! That is exactly right, Jesus was born there. Continue reading

Do you think the world suffers from Pollyanna Syndrome? Do you believe that so much effort has been put forth into teaching what a loving and
I need a “latitude” adjustment….my attitude is headed south in a HURRY~! Why is that you ask? Because my 9 year old son (dyslexic,add but not adHd) is driving me BONKERS!!!!!! I think we may have gone over latitude and longitude, ohhhhhh 5 THOUSAND times in the past 2 days. He can’t even retain water let alone a lesson! Sheeeeeeeeeeesh, and we’ve done so well in the past……Guess this means another BREAKTHROUGH is around the bend! Why? Because anytime there’s been a breakthrough in this house it has only came after MANY challenges <3.
What do YOU do when you’re up against the wall and ready to just hang the kids up by their ears on the ceiling fan and flip it onto high?
I find that I sleep better when I read just before bed, so I take this time for my “daily bread” bible reading. There are some verses that have been on my mind lately I wanted to share with you all…if there IS in fact a you all who actually do read my blog that is LOL.
Your job is to speak out on the things that make for solid doctrine. Guide older men into lives of temperance, dignity, and wisdom, into healthy faith, love, and endurance. Guide older women into lives of reverence so they end up as neither gossips nor drunks, but models of goodness. By looking at them, the younger women will know how to love their husbands and children, be virtuous and pure, keep a good house, be good wives. We don’t want anyone looking down on God’s Message because of their behavior. Also, guide the young men to live disciplined lives.
7-8But mostly, show them all this by doing it yourself, incorruptible in your teaching, your words solid and sane. Then anyone who is dead set against us, when he finds nothing weird or misguided, might eventually come around.
Now…ask yourself this….WHERE are those who ought to be teaching the younger women to love their husbands/children and to be pure in heart etc? WHERE are those who should be teaching the younger men how to be the men God has called them to be? Where???? I find myself wondering because I see a set of adults between the ages of 30 and 50 who honestly don’t seem to have these things down in practice themselves so how in the world are they going to teach the ones following them down this path we call life?
I’m turning 30 in January, in my book that makes me “officially adult”….therefore I commit to BE THE CHANGE. I’ve never been a partyer…never been wild…I’ve been a Christian for a good while but have always taken the sit still, be quiet, and turn my eyes away approach to these younger girls and girls my own age who act just plain crazy…but no more…not I. I will BE the change…..I’ll call it out of the ones behind me by living it OUT LOUD in front of them and calling them out to be BETTER wives/mothers/friends….I’m committed…..and it starts at home…with my own daughter.
Do you notice these on your facebook newsfeed as often as I notice them on mine? It’s the new thing….quite frankly I wonder if any of these people have ever heard the truth before. Since I am doubting that 98% of them have, I’m going to share a little TRUTH with you here on my own little blog (aka soapbox). Be ready though, because the TRUTH often hurts. I’ll start with some cushy little truths that most of you will be comfortable with, but by the time I am finished rest assured you will either A.) HATE ME or B.) RESPECT ME.
The TRUTH (Jesus) is coming….and he will speak a truth that no man can deny! Every tongue will confess (the truth) and every knee will bow. #BEREADY4TRUTH
The TRUTH is…the BIBLE says BE KIND…it did NOT say BE NICE…there IS a difference. Kindness is based upon good will, Niceness is based upon being agreeable. Kindness speaks truth because it loves, Niceness tickles ears because it doesn’t want to hurt feelings. Kindness walks, Niceness only talks. #BeKIND4getBeingNice
The TRUTH is….God is a JUST God…he looks not upon our ACTS but upon our HEARTS. His perspective is NOT based upon what a “good” person we are…our goodness is but as filthy rags in his sight. His word states directly that there is but ONE way to him and that is through his son Jesus. So being good is fine…but having JESUS is paramount! #GoodPeopleDOgoToHell
The TRUTH is….People do NOT become angels when they die(sorry…but they dont…angels cannot be people…and people cannot ever be angels).
The TRUTH is…..you can’t preach someone into Heaven….its funny how everybody is a saint after they die. #LetYourTESTIMONYSpeakJesus
The TRUTH is….God speaks DIRECTLY AGAINST some things…HE CALLS THEM WRONG…Therefore I too can call them wrong and this is NOT hating. #TakeItUpWithTheAuthor
The TRUTH is….Buying a chicken sandwich isn’t going to change the world! #GoVOTEgetObamaOUTofOFFICE
The TRUTH is….I really don’t care if you like the truth or not… The TRUTH will stand when the WORLD is on fire#I’llSpeakItAnyway
