I was posting recipes. God had spoken to me to add them in, albeit temporarily. I have to say, they were popular and I am glad I was able to share some things my mom and grandmother shared with me, but the purpose of this blog is not to share recipes. I never intended it to be a recipe blog site.
Jesus said it best when He said it isn’t what goes into the stomach that is important but what comes out of the mouth. In other words, you have to eat, but more important than your physical body is the nurturing of your spirit! What comes out of your mouth shows the substance of your heart and it also shows what your mind thinks about. Your mouth shows you what you are made of and you will either speak life or death. There is power in your tongue, so there is power in your mouth!
An acquaintance and fellow writer told me one time, “If you want readers, don’t write devotions. People aren’t interested in devotions or Christian literature anymore.” I felt like someone had slapped me! Our lives should EVOLVE around Jesus. You will only GO as far as you GROW.
We need to know how to hear from God, how to get a grasp on God’s direction for our lives, how to have a spirit of wisdom and revelation at work within us. Solomon didn’t ask for an exotic food or decorating sense or how to look like a ‘celebrity’ when God told him to ask anything from Him and He would grant it. He asked for wisdom!
Wisdom should be the main thing we all are searching for, and if you are smart, you will search for it in Jesus Christ. Even demons know Jesus is God so don’t pretend you don’t. Deep down, you absolutely know it!! Many just do not want to admit it. Admit it while you can for the day will come when it will not be able to save you from hell and it will be too late…you will admit it one day anyway. Every tongue is going to confess Jesus Christ is Lord the Bible says! Do it now while you can still save your soul!!
You will find me bolder. I am not here to pacify you, nor am I here to sooth wrong thinking. I don’t mean to offend, but if the truth hurts then let it change you instead of fighting it. You will lose every time! The truth always stands…ALWAYS! You are fighting a losing battle and why would anyone want to continue to be wrong?
I have found I don’t have to back down from any thing God has called me to do. At the moment, I have sold my home and we are without a real address. I am not homeless. Thank God for a Christian couple who opened their home to us temporarily, but I had to let go of what I had to move into what God has and is preparing for me and my family. I will be writing on more of this adventure in faith in the near future.
I have gone from being ‘safe, steady as she goes, no changes’ to being a risk taker in God! By faith, my family will step into literal air this Friday. God will show us the direction we are to go as we listen and we will go where He says. I guess you could say I am flying, wide open! I hope you enjoy the journey with us.
Every year my husband and I make an annual appointment to have our house inspected just to make sure there are no unwelcome guests living in our home. I got the phone call from the exterminator on Tuesday to tell me they wanted to set up a date. My husband told me to make it Friday, at 1:30 because he would be off that day and if there was something he could take care of it.
Today the doorbell rang at 1:15. I look out the window and there sits the company truck of our exterminator. I was sitting on the love seat in my pajamas, reading “Rhythms of Grace” posts, and had gotten so into them I forgot the time. I also forgot the “bug man” was coming! I looked at my husband with sheer panic on my face and he looked at me and grinned! I “whispered”, “Oh no!!! Look at me!!” He grinned wider!
I raced to the bedroom, slammed the door, locked it, and threw on my clothes. I then cleaned our room in what seemed like seconds. Jewelry I had left out was being thrown into drawers, along with my pajamas. If a professional baseball team had seen me I would be signing papers right now as a pitcher!!
I came out, and “the bug man” was in my wash room. Things began to fly in the kitchen! I looked at my husband’s office and decided not to worry about it, I mean everyone has to have ONE junk room in their house, right?
The dogs were going crazy and jumping all over me as though a serial killer had entered! I started thinking about it all. You really can make a cluttered house look immaculate in less than three minutes. Just make an appointment with a “bug man”. I can’t tell my husband this, he will have him over everyday!
