What is Important to Me?


People often ask what would you grab and run with, if your house was on fire ?
People name different things. We have a lock box by the door with important papers, but really the only thing in a fire to worry about is humans and your fur babies. Of course pictures are important but your family would rather have you alive and well.

The question does awaken us to what is important. Family and our pets should come before material things. Now, what is our priority, spiritually? Do we read the Bible if we get time? Or do we set aside a certain time to do read? Do we pray regularly or only when we have time. If we are honest with ourselves, there are times that God takes second place in our lives.

He wants to be first in our lives. When we put God first, He will help us with the rest. If we put Him first, He will helps us accomplish more in the same amount of time. God is faithful and we can trust Him with our time. In our love for Him, let us be faithful to Him.

I walked up to the window in the living room and heard birds, singing. I stopped and praised God for His blessings. It is so wonderful to begin the day knowing that our Heavenly Father cares about the little things that gives us joy. We are so blessed by God and often we do not see the blessings.

We are living in a time of great hope. Not in this world, where evil grows faster then we can even comprehend sometimes. We are living in the age of the great Hope, when Jesus comes for His children. This knowledge should encourage us to reach out to our loved ones, so they will accept salvation. Some will will not hear and so we increase our prayers to God on their behalf.

The attack on Christians is increasing and will grow worse. The more we seek God, the more our faith and courage will increase. The same God who was with the disciples when they were persecuted, will be with His children. Pray for one another so that we can stand strong in our faith and God’s Holy Word. To end our race with priorities on things above, will acquire us to seek help from God daily.

Happy Monday,

The book of Lamentations, is a hard book of the Bible to read. Most times I go pass that book because it is so depressing. Yet, we can learn from the book that tells us of the great sorrow that fell on Israel when they abandon God to worship other idols. The writer is overcome by sadness and her in the midst of his grief he remembers the character of God.

Lamentations 3:22-26 King James Version (KJV)
22 It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
24 The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
25 The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.

Though God was judging Israel the writer of Lamentations, knew that God still loved him and Israel. He knew that God would save them. In the midst of tribulation , he knew God loved them. There will be times we go through stuff because of our sin. There will be times we go though stuff because of the sins of our Nation. No matter what God will not leave us as individuals. America has kicked God out of almost everything, but God has not abandoned His children.

Let us be faithful and true to God until the day we enter Heaven. Seeking to work for the Kingdom of God until the trumpet blows and our salvation is perfected in Heaven.
Betty

Happy Tuesday,

Making It Up on the Spot- Good and Bad

There are things that we can successfully make up on the spot and somethings, we dare not. You are fixing dinner and some people drop by. You can change what you were going to cook into something else that will feed more. Using a buy one large pizza and get one free is always an option .

When I wake up, I like to sing songs of praise to God. Forgetfulness was a problem, until I just starting making up words from my heart. There is nothing wrong with singing songs to God that you remember. Whether we songs we remember or words we make up, if we sing from the heart, God will be pleased.
Today, these were my words:

Rejoice,rejoice
For your sins
Are forgiven.

Rejoice,rejoice
For God will
never forsake you

Rejoice, rejoice
For Jesus is
Coming for you

Rejoice, rejoice
Heavens gates
Are opened wide

These words will never make the radio, but when I sing them to God, I am praising my Heavenly Father. I believe he is pleased at the words I whisper to Him from my heart.

There are things we cannot make up on the spot. God’s Holy Word makes it clear that cannot fight our battles with Satan on the spot. Every day we must put on the armor of God and pray that God will guide us throughout the day. When we are attacked, God will give us the words to say, if we pray and ask Him to do so. We are not fighting against flesh and blood but demons from hell.

Ephesians 6:12 King James Version (KJV)
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Happy Wednesday,

“Oh I Want To See, Him”

The closer I get to God the more I long to see our Heavenly Father. Yet, when I look around I can see God. I see God in the beautiful sunset. I see God in the face of believers who have gave themselves totally over to God. We can also the love of God shining through people. Sometimes we see Jesus in the face of a parent who has suffered the loss of a child. When the parent says through tears:
I cannot hate the person who killed my child because I will not give into hate. I know I will see my child again in Heaven”. This is a special gift that God has given the parent: the ability to forgive the worse that could happen to a parent.

We should long for the day when we see Jesus. May we live everyday working for God, not out of obligation, but because we love Him so much. Let us be the face of God that people see in this world. When we treat people with love, kindness, and respect, they will know that there is something different in us. Be not afraid to talk about Jesus. I am not saying to force yourself on anyone. Just look out for open doors. If someone looks upset ask them if they need anything. If they begin to talk to you, talk to them about the comfort and joy of God. If they cut you off, leave them be, but pray for them silently.
Betty

Oh I Want to See Him - Lyrics
As I journey through the land, singing as I go
Pointing souls to Calvary to the crimson flow
Many arrows pierce my soul from without, within
But my Lord leads me on, through Him I must win
Oh, I want to see Him, look upon His face
There to sing forever of His saving grace
On the streets of glory let me lift my voice
Cares all past, home at last, ever to rejoice
When before me billows rise from the mighty deep
Then my Lord directs my bark, He doth safely keep
And He leads me gently on through this world below
He's a real Friend to me, oh, I love Him so
Oh, I want to see Him, look upon His face
There to sing forever of His saving grace
On the streets of glory let me lift my voice
Cares all past, home at last, ever to rejoice
Oh, I want to see Him, look upon His face
There to sing forever of His saving grace
On the streets of glory let me lift my voice
Cares all past, home at last, ever to rejoice

Happy Thursday,

Looking at this blank page and it seems my mind is a blank, too. What does God have for me to say, today. Then I remember that when get saved and through out the years as we seek forgiveness, God gives us a blank page. David committed adultery and manslaughter. Yet when God sent the prophet to advise David, God did not call David, a murderer and a adulterer . David had sought forgiveness and God forgave David. In fact God called David, a man after His Own heart.

Knowing that we will be forgiven is not a license to sin. Even though we are forgiven , doesn’t mean we will not have consequences. David was forgiven but he still lost his son, conceived in sin. We can pray that God will help us survive as we eat the bad crop we have sowed. We should strive daily not to sin but remember we have advocate in Heaven who speaks for us.

1 John 2:1 King James Version (KJV)
2 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

Living for Jesus is a privilege and having the Holy Spirit living in our heart is a privilege. Working for God is a privilege. May God grant us a joyful heart as we work for Him. May we rejoice in the knowledge that we will one day walk the streets of gold with Jesus by our side.

The closer we walk with God, the more cleaning out of things in our lives we should do. When we are convicted of things we watch and listen to, we should stop. I was a young adult when Frank Sinatra had the hit ‘My Way’. I have sang that song with radio for decades with song. A few years ago I was convicted when I was singing the song. I do not want to live life ‘my way’. Living my way has led me into trouble many times. I want to live life God’s ways.

Today it is hard to find a TV show where the characters do not use God’s Name as a cuss word. Evil is taking over the TV. Nearly every show has their token gay characters and now Madam Secretary has a transgender. This is no accident. They want to make sin normal. The more we see it, the more we are conditioned to no longer see this as sin. We are tempted to just nod and move on, but it is not about older people. The devil is conditioning children, teenagers, and young adults to accept sin is normal. To question the Gospel. We are raising up the young to reject the Gospel for the world’s lies

There is hope. We teach young children the truth. We pray for the children of the world that their eyes may be open. Although we mourn for the morals of this world, we live in the hope of Jesus. By faith we begin each day, knowing God is with us. He will never fail us.

Happy Saturday,

The Cost of Hate

Every week there seems to be somewhere in the world were someone kills several-to many people, simply because the shooter is filled with hate. The Democrats want to blame guns. Guns are not capable of killing on their on. The problem is not guns, the problem is the person behind the gun. The shooter did not start out with a plan to kill people. The person allowed anger to consume them. When one is over come with anger, bitterness grows, and hate takes away all reason from the person. Sadly, most of the time, the person realizes too late, that murder solved nothing. This is way many killers, end of killing themselves.

When we are angry at a person, we need to take that anger and hurt of being overlooked or mistreated. to God. We can begin the process of forgiving the one that caused us so much pain by praying for them. I am not saying it is easy, but doing so we will keep us from growing a bitter vine in our heart. We can do this when we love God more then we hate the person that hurt us. God will take away the hate and heal our hurt if we allow Him too, work in our lives.

We grow spiritually when we are willing to give up the idea of any revenge against someone and give ourselves over totally to God. His will, will bring us peace of mind. The devil will happily remind you of the hurt but each time we ask God to help us to forgive, we will grow stronger in the Lord. If mankind did this as a whole, there would be less murders committed in the world.

Blessed Sunday,

I went to the Doctor and he put me on some medication for chest congestion. I feel worse today then before going to the Doctor. That is normal. When medication starts to work, we will often feel really bad. Spiritually God prunes His vines so they will produce more fruit. Pruning is uncomfortable and often makes us feel bad. If God did not prune His vine (His children), the vines would become overflowing and there would not be enough nutrients to produce a healthy crop.

As God’s children we want to be spiritually healthy and produce as much healthy fruit as we can for the Kingdom of God. When we ask Him, God will comfort us and with His Holy Spirit, provide the oil that will seal the cuts so that they may heal. Never forget that we can always trust God with our lives. He will be with us until they day we enter Heaven, where we go to be with Him.
Betty,

John 15:1-9 King James Version (KJV)
15 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

--------------------

Happy Monday,

I AM TIRED OF-
You can fill in the blank. How many times of you said I am tired or heard someone say that they were tired of something? Tired of people killing people, strangers, simply because they are so filled with hate. Tired of evil congressmen who care more about kittens then human babies. We can grow weary, when we work for a boss that has no concern for people, only the love of money. Those of us with chronic diseases get tired of suffering every day. Jesus knew we would become weary and tired.

Matthew 11:28-30 King James Version (KJV)
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.


Galatians 6:9 King James Version (KJV)
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Isaiah 26:3 3 You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.

When we are over come by exhaustion, rest in the Lord. When we feel dismayed by the evil in the world, be encouraged in the Words of the Lord. God has not forsaken us. When we are overwhelmed, talk to God. As Paul said, press onward to the prize of Heaven. May God give you peace and joy today.
Betty

Happy Tuesday,

Make Me A Blessing

Sometimes we encourage one another and sometimes we depress one another. If we go around talking about how miserable we are all the time, the devil can use us to discourage others. There is nothing wrong with venting to a loved one or a friend. Even in the midst of battles, we can still have a joyful heart. Let us pray each day, that we can begin the day with joy that overflows onto those around us. Pray that God will make us a blessing to one another.

Happy Wednesday,

‘Oh’ Happy Day’

I have heard it said that even if the only thing that Jesus ever did for us was to save us, we would still be richly blessed. What sorrow on earth can be compared to eternity in Heaven? Yet, not only did Jesus leave Heaven to live and die for our sins but He walks with us daily. God knows us better then when know ourselves. He knows the good things about us and He knows the bad and yet He loves us with a perfect love.

He walks with us through our trials and our sickness. He comforts us when we are grieving. He sustains us when we feel that we cannot take another step. He fills our very beings with joy, peace, and love. We can rejoice here on earth for His comfort and grace towards us. We can live with peace and joy knowing our future in Heaven is secure. What wondrous love is the love God has for His children! Let us not walk in despair , but lift our head up and rejoice in the goodness of our Heavenly Father.
Betty

Happy Thursday,

Today my thoughts seem to be on a race track running from lane to lane. I lean my head back and try to focus on one thought, which seems like an exercise in futility. Unfortunately, this can happen in Church. The Preacher says a word, which sends our thoughts off on a tangent. We want to listen but our mind is not working with us. What do we do? We pray. We pray for peace of mind.

Pray is important to our spiritual health. Prayer is not just about request but about us laying our heart out to God. Willing, sharing our desires, fears, and worries with the One who knows us best. Prayer is also praising God for the many blessings He bestows on us and our families. Prayer is also listening to God. Quietly waiting to Hear what He has to say to us.

One of the best gifts, that God has bestowed on us, is the ability to pray anytime and anywhere. We will never get an answering service when we call out to God. God does not take days off or vacations. Prayer is not an exercise that we do. Prayer is a relationship with the God of the Universe.

Psalm 34:17 King James Version (KJV)
17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

Proverbs 15:29 King James Version (KJV)
29 The Lord is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.

Colossians 4:2 English Standard Version (ESV)
Further Instructions
2 Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.

It is not our righteous that God sees. When we are a child of God, Jesus’ own blood covers us with His righteousness.
Betty

Happy Friday,

Waiting, Waiting, Waiting

There seems to be a lot of waiting in life. Waiting for a decision from a job interview. Waiting for results of medical test. Sometimes we can even get frustrated waiting for God to answer our prayer. Yet, there is a reasons for the waiting period. When waiting for God to answer, remember that God already has the answer. The waiting time is a time for spiritual growth for us. When our prayer requires action on the part of another person, God may be softening their hearts, so they will be willing to do God’s Will. Other times He is softening our hearts so we will accept His Will. His Will is always the best for His Kingdom and when we live in His Will, He will bless us.

Waiting does not have to be wasted time. We still work for Jesus while we are waiting. We still read the Holy Bible while we wait. We continue to pray as we wait. In other words, we are still growing spiritually while waiting on God’s Answer. There is a lot in this world to pray for. Every day we see our government turn further from God and embrace sin. We see hate played out in shootings across this world. As we get closer to the end of the Gentiles there seems to be some kind of weather disaster every week.

As we wait for the rapture we try to live each day to the fullness for God. Working for the Kingdom, as we long for the return of Jesus. Longing for Jesus does not mean we do not enjoy the happy things in our lives. We will have a new grand baby in a couple of weeks. We are joyful about this new baby girl. The Lord is merciful to His children and He does bring diamonds of joy in our lives. Let us live with great expectation for the rapture, while at the same time enjoying the daily gifts of joy, that God provides for us.
Betty

Happy Saturday,

“You Can’t Handle, The Truth’

A famous line from a movie but now is true for most of the world. Christian beliefs and principles are considered hate speech. Declaring what the Bible says about sin is hate speech. It’s okay to say you love Jesus as long as the ‘Jesus’ you serve does not condemn sin. Today, people want a God that will protect them, but stay out of their business. They legalize sin and then wonder why judgement is coming on the world in the form of hatred of one another and weather disasters.

We cannot put God in a box and then expect Him to answer our prayers. So many prayers are not even Biblical. Pastors and Congresswomen praying for the success of Planned Parenthood, what blasphemy ! How can we justify asking God to bless an organization that kills babies in the womb? States in our Country promoting abortion to the day of birth! We wonder why we have mass killings. We have devalued human beings in the womb and wonder why young people and adults have no respect for life anymore. We teach kids that their birth was an accident. We tell them this world was created from a Big Bang and then wonder why killing comes so easily.

When we took God out of creation, we devalued life. God knew every person before they were born. Our lives are no accident. God had a purpose for every one of us. Sadly, too many are too self absorbed to give a thought to God or to giving God a place in their hearts. When we step out of our desires and give God control of our lives we are not bound, but find freedom in living for God. His ways are always the best.

Blessed Sunday,

Women Easily Deceived

It is upsetting when God’s Word say that women are easier to deceive then men. Adam was not approached by the devil, but the devil approached, Eve. Eve sinned because she was deceived. Adam chose to sin. God warning us women is not an reproach but a warning to be careful. The last couple of years, we have seen women do things in public that are too evil to even write about. Women who have rejected the truth of the Gospel for lies of the devil.

2 Timothy 3:5-7 King James Version (KJV)
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Women do a lot of thinking and are easily led by those who teach and promote evil. If we are not anchored in God’s Holy Word, we can be led down the garden path of evil. It is gone beyond women acting silly to women engaging in sin that is repulsive and hideous. This does not have to be so. We must choose to judge every knew scheme against the Word of God. I saw a video yesterday where two women who looked possessed by the devil were promoting abortion and choosing not to bring children in this world. The whole time they were talking they were waving their arms in the air as if they were controlled by the devil and I believe they are.

The devil knows that in today’s world it is the women who controls the family. If mama says no Church, then the family doesn’t go to Church. If mama rejects God, she will lead her family right into hell. We must teach our children the truth. Teach them to be aware of the evil around us. The devil is tearing apart families by starting with the women.

A woman who is walking with God will guide her family to walk with Jesus and to worship our Heavenly Father. Being strong women is not a sin. We must be strong so that we are not led by every new belief that comes on the scene. Pray that God will protect our home from evil. Pray that God will keep us firmly in His Word and help us reject the evil in the world.

Happy Monday,

“It Is No Secret”

As a Christian, we are not in the dark about what God wants for us to be doing. The Great commission makes it clear. Of course we are all not called to the Mission field, but we are all called to pray for those who have God has called.
Every field is important. A Sunday School teacher for Children is just as important to God, as the person in a foreign Country. We will be Blessed when we work for God out of love and not obligation. Shut-ins can still pray one another.

God knows our struggles. He knows our weaknesses. If we ask Him, He will sustain us and give us strength. We can rest in the Lord and He will revive our bodies and spirits. Whatever stage in life we are, we can pray that God will use us for His Kingdom.
Betty

Jim Reeves Lyrics
Play "It Is No Secret"
on Apple Music
"It Is No Secret"

The chimes of time ring out the news
Another day is through
Some one slipped and fell,
Was that someone you?

You may have longed for added strength
Your courage to renew
Do not be disheartened
I have news for you.

[Chorus:]
It is no secret what God can do,
What he has done for others,
He'll do for you.
With arms wide open,
He'll pardon you
It is no secret what God can do.

There is no night, for in His light
You'll never walk alone.
You'll always feel at home wherever you may roam,
There is no power can conquer you,
While God is on your side.
Take Him at His promise,
Don't run away and hide.

[Chorus:]
It is no secret what God can do,
What he has done for others,
He'll do for you.
With arms wide open,
He'll pardon you.
It is no secret what God can do...

Happy Tuesday,

A Rough Day

Everyone is familiar with a rough day. There are two kinds of rough days. One is when something bad happens. Another one is when many little things happen one after another. On its own, one little thing is not that big a deal but when things pile up one by one, we can become short tempered. We can begin to feel sorry for ourselves. Have you ever said:”Why does everything have to happen to me?” I think we all have.

When we step back and get our breath, we calm ourselves and then we can relax. Not only can we find physical rest in Christ, but we can find spiritual and emotional rest. We can be refreshed when we talk to God. He is willing to listen to our concerns and fears. In His great love for us, He actually listens to us. He does not tune us out or pretend to listen.

When you have chronic health problems, you try not to talk about your issues all the time. We do not want people to avoid us because all we do is moan and complain. We can take our concerns to God. He will listen and He will help us. We lay out our issues before the Throne and then we praise God for His faithfulness. Even if you are still in pain when you finish praying, you can walk away rejoicing in the goodness of our Lord and Savior.

Rough Day-Take it to Jesus

Betty
