MV Hebrews 10:14

13 Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, 14 because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.  Hebrews 10:13-14

I plan to memorize verse 14.  Verse 13 shows the patience of my Savior.  He IS in Heaven, He IS waiting for His enemies to be made His footstool.  

Verse 14 is so special to me.  With Easter coming, I like to spend extra time meditating on what Jesus did for me.  It is so humbling.  By His love, He willing took on my sin, made atonement for me with His life.  He is the only perfect, true sacrifice.  That atonement makes me perfect.  I am perfect, forever!  That is hard to grasp in itself.  

I am being made holy as well.  I am perfect, I am being made holy.  Each day, each moment, I am being made worthy of God's presence by His power, discipline and enabling.  I am growing into the robe Jesus covered me with.  Being made holy also indicates that I will be finished someday, just not today!  I have so much to learn and apply.  I am handing what needs fixed over to God and listening to Holy Spirit's conviction.  God is Good!

Words of Prayers...part 1

Prayer is powerful.  I'm learning to use God's word as a prayer.  What better prayer than to pray God's words back to Him?

May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.  1 Thessalonians 5:23-24

I pray this for those I shepherd.  

1You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
2 I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
4 I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
6 On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night.
7 Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.
8 I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.
9 Those who want to kill me will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.
11 But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God will glory in him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced. Psalm 63

This one just speaks words my soul has.  It resets my focus on God and how I spend my days.

Junk not Welcomed

Well, all the junk in my head had to stop this week.  In reaching out in prayer, God has revealed some things to me that I do need to work on.  He is revealing Himself to me, allowing me to know Him better.   I edited some of my post to reflect the change in thinking He directed me to.

Read here how I have a tendency to try to fix things on my own.  I’ve gone through a spell where on one side I’m running on all cylinders and focused on God’s plan for me.  On the down side, I keep finding things I need to fix.  As if I could really change on my own. 

Thankfully, a weight lifted when God showed this to me.  This whole maturing in Christ, being Christ-like is a LIFETIME process.  It can’t be and won’t be done until I’m called to be with Christ.  I suppose it pride that wants perfection now.  I need to have more grace with myself and press on towards the goal before me.

I’ll post soon what plan God has laid before me.  I’m excited, yet I’m learning patience because all of it takes time and can’t be done right now.

MTC Study

Made to Crave Review
Page 43 in the participant guide.  Giving up secrecy and taking responsibility for my choices (adapted slightly).

This blog helped me open up more to express those thoughts that would float around, sometimes forgotten.  I am gaining confidence in what I write, what God is revealing, in my as His child.  Confidence where God is leading me.

Pondering my thoughts, often repetitive.  It can be exhausting at times to go over the same thought over and over.  This study has yet again reminded me (along with some revelation God sent my way) that I need to quit wishing certain things were different.  Either I need to drop the desire for change or seek God's plan for change and follow through.  

I, of course, chose God's plan.  I don't want to stay in my little box, only seeing the impossible, only to see how hard change would be.

Compete with Horses

“If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan? Jeremiah 12:5 

Over the past two years (more like 3), I've asked God to find me a job that works with K's school schedule.  To find something to fill my days besides idleness.  Of course I choose the idleness.

The past few months He has convicted me on my TV, computer time idle-busyness.  With His help I have obeyed and used my time better.  He gave me Jeremiah 12:5 as an explanation to what seemed like, but wasn't lack of response on my request.

How can I race with horses if racing with men wears me out?  Horses for me is the ministry God wants me to do.  The men are the above mentioned time wasters.  And I do often feel wore out.  To exhausted to do His work.

He revealed this when I was willing to give up on my dreams (writing), willing to move out of my comfort zone (shepherding and service to others), and stop putting my requirements on things (want of an income, time constraints).  He wanted me to expect Him to remove barriers and what seemed impossible. 

Looking at the things I wanted to do, God didn't really take them away, He just wanted me to do it His way.  He lead me to write this blog instead of the writing I did for myself.  He made the uncomfortable, comfortable.  Showing me that I did have the skills, just not used, to be comfortable in His will.  We do not need extra income for a paid position.  My husband provides enough for a simple lifestyle we live.  I am able to be available to my daughter instead of putting her in child care.  I no longer listen to the lie that I need an income for my own security, my own validation - all about me that the world tries to tell me.  In my work for God I am earning more than this world could ever give.

Now I'm ready to run with horses.

Savings Tips

Things I use to save money.  It take time.  Just consider it extra pay to yourself for each dollar you save.

Sunday Coupon Preview blog.  I follow this blog.  I look at the coupons for the up coming week to see if it's worth getting a weekend paper.  My only flaw in this plan is sometimes I forget to get the paper on weekends when the coupons are good.  It does save me on those weekend where there is no coupons.

I file my coupons by month.  Then review each week with sales ads when item goes on sale or I need the product.  I also go to various coupon sites to print coupons from my computer.  

Price sheet.  
I keep a price sheet on items that go on sale frequently and are usually a bigger savings.  It's good to know what you're spending.  I update every few months in the store, which is writing down the price as I shop.  Also, I update after shopping trips.  I enter the price from my receipt.  It's really helpful when I look at sales ads.  I often list things by price per piece, like toilet paper and bar soap.  And remember that if you do have a sales ad with a lower price, Wal-mart will match it.

I list the stores that I'm most likely to shop at and are on my way during my normal week.  I don't like Meijer, since they don't include all their sales in their ad, although one is really close to me.  And for non-grocery items (besides pet food), I pay several dollars more for most items.  If their sales ad was more inclusive, it'd be a different story.  I may be missing out on deals, oh well.  I want to know the deals when I leave my house to shop, not wait and see what each store has to offer.  That leads in to...

Sales ads.  
On weeks I don't get a paper, I go to Shop Local. com.  This site has most the ads for my area.  I still might have to go to the actual store site sometimes.  This site save a lot of time.  Only drawback it it isn't in print and if there were coupons in the ad (like Walgreens), then I'm out of luck.  It's great to use as a comparison on my price sheet.  Then I know whether it is a good price or if I just think it is.

Pleasing Jesus

8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)
31 Meanwhile his disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat something.”
 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”
 33 Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?”
   34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. 35 Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. 36 Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. 37 Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. 38 I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.” John 4: 8, 31-38

I'm still amazed as to how much can be gleaned from this passage with the Samaritan woman.  I recently looked again at the interaction with the disciples around Jesus and the Samaritan woman.

The disciples went into town to buy food.  They were in an area that disgusted them, as the Samaritans were half breeds and according to their law, did not worship God properly.  Samaritans also worshiped idols.  

Yet they went into town to do what they thought would please Jesus.  

Meanwhile, Jesus is working on the spiritual needs, not physical.  So when the disciples return, they wonder what physical food Jesus ate.  What about their effort to get food from the town?  Jesus points out the harvest of Samaritans that were coming towards them.  This is the first time Jesus includes gentiles in His ministry.

I want to go back to what the disciples were doing.  They did what they thought Jesus wanted.  They thought they were pleasing Him with their works.

Do I do that?  Do I say, "I'm going to do this for God.  I want You to notice God and bless me for what I'm doing for you."?  Yet, I fulfill my need by what I did.

Yes, what I do should be for God, but is it God's will?  Am I telling God I'm willing to do what ever you ask as long as I can stay in my safe little place.  And PLEASE, don't ask me to speak to the Samaritans.  It was degrading enough just to purchase food from them.  Am I so focused on my own physical needs that I miss the spiritual needs before me?  

I am challenged to think outside my safe little world.  To look beyond what is happening before me.  To look the the spiritual aspects of those around me.  To point to Jesus, just as the Samaritan woman did.  

I've been patient (well perhaps not completely).  God is revealing His plan for me.  He's showing me the way.  Putting the people in my path to speak with.  He's formulating a plan.  Will I step completely on His next step for me?  We shall see.

My church asked for us to write our testimony.  Keep it short.  Well that's hard for me to do, although I didn't go into a lot of details.  I thought I should post my message here as well.  
I am one of eight children - my dad's youngest, my mother's 3rd to youngest.  I spent time being the youngest, middle and oldest child at home.  I did not grow up in the church.  Up to the time I was nine, I only attended VBS.  At nine, my cousin took me to with her to church.  The church she attended the last time they lived in the area had moved to just two blocks from our home.  In fact, it was where my bus stop was.  Over the next few years, I was able to attend regularly.
We moved away for the school year.  The next summer we moved back and I went to church camp with that church.  During this week, I learned about Jesus and asked Him into my heart.  It was the first time I remember His peace washing over me. 
When we settled in our new home, a neighbor invited me to her church that lived by a lot of rules.  I learned all the things I shouldn’t do to be a true Christian.  This caused me to pull away from God, since I messed up a lot.  As an adult, I attended church sometimes, but felt I needed to cleanup my act and stop sinning before I could draw close to God. 
In my mid-twenties, my brother committed suicide.  God was the only place I had to turn.  He helped me get through.  Unfortunately, the weight of my guilt stopped me from seeking Him.  I did faithfully pray everyday, usually for Him to change my circumstances.  
Fast-forward a few years, D and I were married.  We agreed not to have children.  Yet God had a bigger, better plan.  He sent K just a few months after our marriage.  I knew I wanted to raise her in the church and give her all the love and care I did not receive as a child. 
In June 2007, I submitted my life to God.  I was convicted to know Him better.  At the time, Bible study was boring.  How could I do it everyday?  Through bringing more mature Christians into my life and preparation of my heart within a year, I was doing daily study – almost.  Within two years I was in BSF.  In the fall of 2009, church had a baptism Sunday.  My heart pounded yet again when people were baptized.  When my pastor turned to us and gave reasons to be truly baptized, I could only say yes.  D felt the same.
It’s been a wonderful marriage to see how we went from a self-centered lifestyle to a God-centered one.  To not only see the transformation of my own life, but that of my life-mate.  To see the wonderful heart God is creating in my daughter.
For me, I went from a rude, impatient, angry person to a kind, calm and patient (most of the time) person.  I don’t even look the same.  I went from a size 20W to a size 8.  I praise God for saving me from myself.  

 God is good!

Playlist #2

Another song on my playlist is Shine by Newsboys.

You hear your heart start asking,
"What's my motivation?"

I love jogging to this song.  It's upbeat and that part gives me the encouragement to push through and keep jogging.  I ask 'What's my motivation?'

My motivation?  God and being obedient to Him.  He's called me to jog.  The old me doesn't want to jog.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17

It's amazing, listening to this song, I can push through.  Get to the point to really jog.  I want to stop.  I want to say it's to soon to do a steady jog, I need to walk another minute.  Push through to that place where I am at a steady pace.  I slow pace, mind you I wouldn't win any races.  It's a jog, its a slow pace, it's a place where I could go on longer than I imagined.  It's my motivation that God has a goal for me.  He wants me to stick to it.  He doesn't want me to tweak it, to make it my own.  He wants it to be His.  He wants me to obey.  I get the joy of knowing I obeyed, that I am healthier for the jog and next time I can go longer, do more.

God is my motivation.  Wanting to do what pleases Him.  I spent so much of my life pleasing me only to be unhappy, anxious and depressed.  Spending time with God and learning what He's calling me to do (not what He's calling you to do) and how He's calling me to do it is the best way to spend my life.

MV 3-12 Isaiah 58:10

After reading Isaiah 58 starting at verse 6 (for before this God is speaking how the Israelis thought they were pleasing God, but only themselves), I could only sit back and find peace in knowing this spoke of my future.  

and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
   and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
   and your night will become like the noonday. 

                                                Isaiah 58:10

This verse says what I am to do for my Lord.  I'm coming into full understanding of what that is and what I need to do to be fully trained to do it.

Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
   and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
   and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. 

                                              Isaiah 58:8

This is a verse for when you are down.  How fast will healing occur when I look at my situation from God's view.  What was the reason for my circumstance?  Is it an answered prayer, just not in the way I would have done it?  Like asking for a quick adjustment to time change and then only sleeping a few hours.  Well, yes I would like more sleep, for I know I need it.  However, I will be tired early tonight and I will sleep soundly, waking on the morrow adjusted.

The last two lines are beautiful.  There's a footnote, a different interpretation for righteousness.  

then your righteous One will go before you,
   and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. 

Who is my righteous One - Jesus.  He lead the way for me.  He is also my Lord, who guards my rear.  He is before me and behind me.  He is taking every step with me.  He is guiding me, waiting patiently when I try my own steps only to return to Him.

So my light, the light of my Lord, Jesus will shine out.  Glory will be His!  God is good!

Conversation Questions

I posted a couple conversation questions I can pull out to help me in conversation.  I need to put them to use!

-What's God doing in your life?  
-How can I pray for you?

I heard another that I want to store in memory to use.  I have a neighbor that wears a cross necklace and I would love to ask him.

-That's a pretty necklace.  Is that something pretty to wear or does it represent a deeper meaning to you?

I was warned this could cause some surprising answers.  That it really only works on a small setting, perhaps one on one.  To be prepared to answer to the response with saying I'm a sister in Christ as well or to tell what the cross means to me.

Answered Prayers

I asked K (daughter) if God had answered any of her prayers.  We reviewed some of her recent prayers and realized and thanked God for healing our cat.  

Kabingo is a good cat.  He is a Himalayan and good natured.  He puts up with a lot of mild abuse from my daughter's growing years (think Puss in Boots in Shrek - Deck the Halls).  We joke that he acts more like a dog than a cat.  A few years ago he started to have belly trouble.  The vet couldn't find anything wrong with him.  Other than getting sick at least once a day, he was healthy and not losing weight.  The dr changed his diet, but nothing really helped.  So we put him in the spare room when we were out of the house to 'contain' any messes (and keep it off the couch/bed/chair).

We've done this for over two years.  I prayed for him to stop.  Until a month ago, I didn't think he'd be healed.  Then K started to prayer for him.  She didn't like his crying when he was in his room (long cat howls).  She wanted him to be free.  And more importantly, she wanted him to stop being sick.

So when we acknowledged that he wasn't getting sick, thanked God for the answered prayer, I meditated on it.  Why was her prayer answered and mine wasn't?  What was it about her prayer that was better?  

Then my attitude and motivation for my prayer came to me.  I prayed for him to stop so I wouldn't be burdened with clean up.  I didn't want to be bothered taking him to the vet, buying expensive food, listen to him cry in his room.  In case you missed it, my motivation for his healing was very selfish.  I also gave up on the prayer, I accepted he would live the rest of his days like that.

K's prayer was motivated out of love for Kabingo.  Out of a true desire to see him healed.

It wasn't that God ignored my prayer.  It just my prayer wasn't a sincere prayer.  God made ways for us to endure the cat's sickness.  Helped me get past my desire to get rid of the cat.  It gives me something else to think about when my prayer seems to hit the ceiling.  Am I truly seeking God's will? or my will?

Who I am...

In knowing striving to submerse myself in God, I found I didn't know who I am.  Who am I in Him?  

In Ephesians chapter 1,  I learned I am:

Chosen - God chose me before the creation of the world
Holy - I am sanctified through Christ as holy
Blameless - The same for blameless.  Christ bore it all.
Loved - God gives me, chooses me, because He loves me.
Predestined - God chose me before I knew Him.
Adopted - Accepted me into His family and helps me become like Him.
Pleasure of God - it was His pleasure to adopt me.
Part of God's will - He planned for me to come to Him.
Redeemed - Christ traded His life to buy mine.
Full of Grace through Jesus - Grace that Jesus secured on the cross for me.
Forgiven - Jesus bore my sins so that I am free of guilt and free to live in Him.
Wise - God lavished His wisdom on me, making His will known.
Understanding - God lavished His understanding on me.
Knowledgeable to God's will  - That I know what He purposed, what He will bring to fulfillment bringing all under one head.
The body of Christ - I am part of Christ, as all saints are.
His praise and glory - In my life, reflecting His glory, sing His praises, loving His children, I live.
Christ inheritance - I have inheritance in Christ and I am His inheritance.
Hopeful to His power - God's great power that raised Christ is in me, I have hope in that power.
Under Christ - I, as part of Christ body is under Him.
In Christ - I am in Christ and He is in me.
Blessed - I, as God's adopted child, have His spiritual blessings that are present in my spirit in the heavenly realms, even now.
Sealed - I have the Holy Spirit living in me, giving me grace, wisdom, discernment, revelation.  This seal protects me from tampering, keeps me fresh (not stale), marked with a promise.

Wow, a lot in just twenty three verses.  How much more can I find in the rest of the book?  I want to replace the lies that float in my head and start to see myself as God does.  It is only when I see as He does can I have His perspective on the world around, when I know Him.

Domestic Support - tips

If you’re living in clutter and want to make a change, that’s the first step to making that change, so congratulations!

One of my biggest advice is to observe other’s in their home when you visit.  And if you’re house is cluttered, then I know that you visit other people’s homes, LOL.  Even on TV, look for how things get done.

For me, I noticed my sister-in-law, who is a clean fanatic, starts her dish water while she prepares dinner.  This allows her to use her wait for it to cook time to clean any dishes used while making dinner and it’s easy to take the dishes from dinner to the sink and finish the job after dinner.

Get in your mind the laundry isn’t finished until put away.

That each time I go out my back door, I need to have a recycle pile in my hand to put it in the bin.

On TV I watched Walton’s mom clean her kitchen.  Counters are cleared after each meal.  All things are put away so that she can do her work effectively.

Get the idea?  I mentioned Fly Lady before, which is a good place to start.  However I found that I had a tendency to waste time on the emails instead of spending the time doing it.  It was a great tool to get started with when you don’t know where to go.  I use many of her time management principles and how she breaks down a large task to manageable smaller tasks.

I took from Fly Lady having wipes in the bathroom to do a quick polish.  I might not do it daily, but the wipes are available when it needs done (at least once a week). 

Bottom line is that you need to figure out what works for you.  Start on one point and you’ll find you’re freed from the bondage of junk.  I find it difficult to ignore what needs done.

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Roman 12:2a
If it is encouraging, let him encourage…Roman 12:8a

I am an encourager.  God has called me to this.  The problem lies in the fact that I didn’t know how to encourage others.  Yet this passage in Roman states clearly how to learn.  Don’t conform, or follow the ways of this world.  Allow God to transform me, to bring out the encourager in me.

Once I got on board with developing this gift, I began to learn.  An encourager has a smile on her face most of the time.  As posted before, I need to put the smile of faith on.  To encourage is to really listen and see.  Use God’s eyes to see beyond what is there and hear beyond what is said.  (Not to say develop supernatural powers, but to tap into the supernatural spirit that indwells you.)

To encourage I must have patience.  Patience to allow the other to speak, not jump right into rescue mode.  Patience to keep going when I see no fruit from my actions.  Patience to wait on the right opportunity.  Patience to obey God even when I don’t see how my little action could possible change things.

Most important to encourage is to keep the focus on Jesus.  To always point to Him. 

To do this, I must know Jesus.  I must have scripture in my head, even if I don’t know the address of the scripture.

MV 3-3 Ephesian 1:17

When a verse is put in front of your face in three or more times in less than two days, I think it's God's way to say this is your next memory verse.

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you a Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that you may know him better.  Ephesian 1:17

Oh how I pray this for me and all that I know and love, even those I don't know and love.  This culminates what God is directing me to, to know Him better through writing His word on my heart, prayer and Bible study.

Patience is one of those fruits of the spirit we all long for, yet don’t pray for because we don’t want to endure the disciple that goes with the training.

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful.  Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.  Hebrews 12:11

This is one of my favorite verses, so applicable to life.

What harvest comes developing patience?  In my life, many things.  For one, I am humble.  I don’t lose patience when dealing with others and jump to frustration or anger over how I’m being treated.  I accept that no matter how they behave, I am secure in who I am in Jesus.  I deserve worse than what I’m enduring, yet whatever happens it isn’t important in light of eternity.  Read and meditate on the Sermon on the Mount and see if your attitude isn’t changed.

Patience enables me to persevere.  I read the comments on the For Better or For Worse Dec. 4, 2011 comic.  I loved how she said her mother had endless patience so that she completed and got done what needed done.  How would my life change, what could I learn if I kept going and didn’t give up?  All those things I wish I could do could be a reality if I started the process with the intention to have the patience to see it through.

As you can see, patience is one of those foundational fruit of the spirit upon which others can grow.  In patience I can show kindness, gentleness (I’m not in a hurry to get it done), love, faithfulness, and goodness.  And through patience I get to joy, peace and self-control. 

I am able to encourage other by my patience.  I set an example for my daughter to follow.  I am tempered.

Engage me

Thanks to God for this blog, I'm getting better at speaking, sharing with others.  We had the opportunity to celebrate the wedding of our nephew recently.  During that time, it was expressed by someone that the larger group should have made effort to engage the smaller group (sides of the new family) in conversation. 

The word engage struck a cord with me.  I laughed at the notion that it was the responsibility of a "larger" group to engage the smaller group.  This then leads to asking who's responsible for engaging another person?  And of course the application question: do I expect other people to engage me?

I recalled the night before the wedding celebration, I asked for opportunity to be social.  Some in the group thought that was odd, since we (D and I) seem social.  However, after reflection, I agree I'm often friendly, but rarely social.  I'm so happy I asked for prayers on this point so I didn't miss this whole need to engage others.

Back to the application question.  It's not the expect others to engage me, I just struggle with small talk or at least starting small talk with someone else.  Being the first to speak is hard.  Or keeping a conversation going by not dominating the topic and allowing the other person to speak.  And worse, what to do when everyone seems deep in conversation, how do I join?

The word engage reminded me of a church message I listened to when K and I went to church in Aspen, CO while D was in a conference.  It was about how God's people are to engage others.  We are to say hello, acknowledge their existence.

John 4:7 - When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, "Will you give me a drink?"

Acts 3:4 Peter looked straight at him, as did John.  Then Peter said, "Look at us!"

These are just two of many examples the Bible has to show that I, as a Christ follower, should reach out to others.  It's not up to them to reach out to me.  This isn't to force myself or my service on them, but to be available.  

So I'm learning some conversation questions:
     -What's God doing in your life?  
          This allows them to either reflect on God
          goodness or confess they don't believe.  
          It's basis point for me to continue the con-

    -How can I pray for you?
          This is better than how are you doing, in 
          that it jumps right to sharing.  The person 
          may say I'm good, but I'll keep at it for this 
          is an area that God wants me to improve 
          upon, being a intercessor for others.
