New Ministry Excitement!

I have been blessed to be part of a group of people who are looking to God (by being in the Word), and also gleening from each other.  Philter48 is much more than a forum, it is discussion, articles (blogs for men , women, teens-this one not quite ready), forum style Bible Study, and also other topics following after the Verse Philippians 4:8  Whatever is…  Registration is easy and painless, and you will not be given to spambots, or any solicitation.  Its just a safe place to think and build community with other believers.  Do you have to be a believer?  No, but those are the topics we are looking at..and I do think everyone can benefit from it.

I have been posting on the Womens Blog, and I am excited about what God is doing in me through this.  CPKroboth III has been blogging there on the Mens Blog, and I am sure there is a blessing there for you men. 

There is just so much there, TV/live chat…which can also be used as a chat area, a section in the forum to leave prayer requests (who does not need prayer? that is my question) God has been good in giving Carl and Brian this vision, and providing the support they need to get it going. 

Hoping to see you all there, and hope that you will be as blessed as I am in this.  Join us, we would love to hear your thoughts, encouragements, and your struggles.  Come, do life with me!

two paths…seeking HIS Righteousness

twopathsSeems like I have been looking at these paths forever but in reality it has been 8 weeks.  Spiritually speaking.  Since walking on the path seeking HIS face, and HIS righteousness…the path keeps getting smaller.  Along with that, people tend to be left behind, and more believing God is needed. God will take care of those who are not going with, and God also calls me to follow after HIM.  The paths up to this point have been much easier for me to discern direction.  I am sure although I believe my road is extremely narrow, that it can become more narrow.  At the same times, I recieve warnings from other believers that this may be deception.  My only answer to that is…I need to believe GOD, and if I choose in error, I am still believing GOD, and HE will have to rescue me, and I believe that HE will.  Still not wanting to turn away Godly advice.  Are you starting to understand my dilema? 

I have come to this…

*Jesus is the way..and all men come to the Father through him. (John 14:6)

*My deepest heart cry is to know HIM more and love HIM more.  (Phillipans 1:9-11)

*fear of the LORD is sometimes interpretted as a critical spirit. Fearing the LORD is better than what men say. (Jeremiah 32:39)

*Walk by faith and not by sight.(Hebrews 11:1 )

*waiting for HIM to say “this is the road, take it.”   (Isaiah 30:21)

Last question for today..HOW does this verse play in to all that I am thinking? This is where I continue to come back to, and the verse that seems to be tucked in the back of my mind. ..

Isa 35:8 (NASB) — A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it {will} be for him who walks {that} way, And fools will not wander {on it.}

Two paths…feeling the pressure to choose, and yet I want HIM to tell me. What HE speaks to me is…”Believe ME”..

(Update- I choose today, and I am believing God that HE is always faithful, and will finish the work HE has started in me and through me.  Thank you all for your great encouragement, and prayers! love you)

Reading your Bible?

Last Evening my daughter and I started studying Ephesians together..well we only got through 6 verses..but hopefully more later today.. I am in search of a plan that takes me through my Bible, but I am not really interested in doing it in a time frame.  I know me, if you set a deadline before me..I will make that deadline! But if I take the time I really need to do it, better end result. 

I seem to be with out a study at the moment, I am working on Philippians, but that will be a slow process, and I need something to have my quiet time with.  Any suggestions?? Do you use a Study workbook? Any new and exciting studies out there, that I should know about??
