5 Ways blogging benefits…me

I have  been tagged by Gchyayles (you sweet thang!…LOVE HER), and I am doing this tag, because I think alot of us need to refocus on why we do it, and what the benefits of blogging are. So Gchy gchy girl..all for you!

1.  Blogging keeps me accountable to make sure I am spending time with God, and that what I write has come from my time with HIM. It disciplines me, and spurs me on to learn and keeps me real.

2.  Blogging has helped me to see the body of Christ is a better light, as we are all far away, we share things that would be more difficult in just meeting someone new for the first time.  Its easy to be honest here. And my new love for the Body is an answer to prayer for me.

3 Blogging has provided me with a faith family that I have longed for, it has connected me to people with hearts that are very similiar to my own, and for years I prayed to know just one more person, and HE has blessed me with many!

4. Blogging has introduced me to studying with others on line and helping me to see many different angles of study, and interpretations, and I am learning plenty..Praise God!

5.  Blogging has shown me that you all are not pretend people (Bwan brought that to my attention), and I have had a chance to meet many this summer, and can not wait to see what GOD will do through this blogging experience!

I am part of a blogging family, and God has greatly blessed us through this. 

I am tagging five more…

Heather, Jenny, Steph, Deborah(my African Dolla…I owe her this one too, from a while back…sorry I you),  Sherma (brainteaser)…have fun…and you can leave them here or let us know to come there..but thoughts we want them!! love you!  Don’t forget to visit GCH, and share a little love…I so want to adopt that girl, but she is lady, and doesn’t need another mom..but I could mother her to death! Muaah!!

Favorite Book of the Bible- meme

(if you are looking for the update to the HOPE CRUSADE IN PHILADELPHIA-GO HERE PRAISE365 but then come back!)


I was tagged by Michelle to name my favorite book of the Bible and why?  so although this was a hard one for me to nail down, I picked Hosea.  There is circumstances in life that lead me to other books to encourage me for different reasons…but I think I end up here most often.

Hosea- this books is a perfect illustration of our human defiance in  being faithful to God.  Also a perfect illustration of HIS mercy and faithfulness to do what ever needs to be done to turn us back to HIM.  HE does not let go.  Another thing is the way God led Hosea to marry an unfaithful woman, and to name his children things that would a painful reminder to him and those around him.  Wonder why?  I have pondered on that several times…but the answer I come to is so Hosea could see through God’s eyes.  That is most likely the reason we go through so much suffering, although we complain and stomp our feet..I think the lesson is to ask God to see it through HIS eyes…Just my thoughts.  While reading through Hosea, look specifically for God’s heart and actions…it really shines a light on HIM and put there for us.

Now I am tagging

Book Meme-page123

I have been tagged by God’s Gal, and some of the reads are funny,  mine of course wasn’t funny! 😦 but in all honesty of this whole pile of books near me my Bible was the closest…have fun and keep it clean and family friendly! Thanks 

1. Pick up the book closest to you (at least 123 pages)

2.  Turn to page 123

3.  Go down 5 sentences

4.  Write out the next 3

5.  tag 5 people

Here is mine- Book-Bible page 123(Exodus)

Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd, and do not show favoritism to a poor man in his lawsuit. If you come across your enemy’s ox or donkey wandering off, be sure to take it back to him.

I did my turn, now its your turn! If you are here I am tagging you!
