Blogging Bible Study has Returned!

OH.MY.GOODNESS! I am so glad to see this return. So here is how it will work.  You can go Here to see the weekly line up, and the others are also listed under Blogging Bible Study .

We are starting with Galations, then Ephesians, then Phillipians..one chapter a week.  Then each of us have our own day of the week that we will blog something from that chapter.  Reading just one will just not do, you really need to read all entries from the week, as we are all very different from each other, we will definitely see different things that God will speak to us.  Can you tell I am very excited about this??  I love the accountability this gives me, and lets face it..I love blogging! I hope you will join us or leave comments so that we can also glean from your input.  I love starting a new study…and I love that God will allow me to share my findings here! Don’t forget to check HERE for the line up. Peace!

The Seed Of Bitterness

Struggling many times with disappointment and wondering how it turns into anger and bitterness. It seems without much warning the whole world can turn upside down within my heart. WOW! what or how did that happen. God is always awesome to lead me to something that shines a light on my heart..this week HE led me to Lynse, if you get a chance to read this, i am thinking her questions will do a work in your heart as well… As I pondered her post, and was confronted this last week with issues that just weren’t apparent to me before, I found my self going back to this post..here is my walk through disappointment, anger, bitterness ….  go here

( I will start blogging part of my post here, and the entire post at Philter 48..hope to see your comments here or there, and do go read Lynseleanne’s post very good!)

Fixing my Focus…

Facebook.  Twitter.  Blogs. Outreach. Church. Family. Life good and bad. Work. Friendships. None of which are bad things, but if not in the correct priority is demolition to my walk with Christ. So my struggles, and my lack of “livehappy” is my own doing.

Since my top priority is walking with the LORD, and being all that I can be in HIM, i needed to make some difficult decisions.

~my time with God comes first in the day or this laptop does not open til it happens.

~I am moving my writing to Philter48 because that is my call to write and to be a light that shines, and the accountability that goes with it. I am sure this is a good move.

~Being a part of a church family is God’s will for me…HE has placed me with a group of people who have a heart for the lost, and maybe for the first time I feel like I am home and with my vision “An Army of Love”.  Been struggling with this, but time to stop fighting it and move on with it.

~limiting my facebook time, and my twitter time, but not feeling like I need to stop it.

~family is important to me, and I am working on being more flexible with them, they are a gift from God.

~my friendships are important to me, and I want to be more open to spend more time with them.

~embracing the life God has given to me unselfishly, and living happy, being grateful, and keeping a Kingdom focus.

If you want to read more of ponderings, you will find them at Philter48. My outreach to search and rescue people who are bound by the enemy unknowingly.   You can follow me on Twitter and also on Facebook.

Love you all, and hope to see you and hear from you…Peace

Our Creative Community

I am blessed to be part of this community. I need to be held accountable, and to see that being held accountable does not mean that every time I don’t quite make it to my goal for the week, I am not hit with a hammer! YAY! Instead they encourage me to continue on and try again.  Can you see a picture of Christ in that?  I can. And it has touched my heart and spurred me on like no other!

As I continue to look into my study on the Holy Spirit, HE has confronted me.  When I first came to Christ, my world turned upside down, and nothing seemed familiar, and struggles that had not existed before were relevant in my life.  Some how that has all evened out and a bit of complacency has taken root.  So while reading and asking the LORD to help me know this Spirit that lives in me, I am confronted again with a world upside down, and struggles that are relevant in my life.

SInce the Spirit is here to comfort me (just one instance), and I am without comfort, than I am not allowing HIM to do HIS job.  Not HIM, me!  If I am confused, and do not know which end is up, then I am not allowing HIM to direct me.  When I am fearful of what is going on around me, or in how someone mistreats me, I am not believing in HIS strength that lives in me.  

A bit uncomfortable is truth. But so glad to be on this road, knowing HIM more and loving HIM more.  I am thanking God for “Our Creative Community” as HE is using it to bring me closer to HIM, and to hear HIS voice more clearly. Amazing! Checkout Our Creative Community, and see if its a place where you can also find some encouragement to move in the direction that God is pulling you.
