10 posts below, what AWAITING wrote really hit home for me. I am on a new journey with God. This year has been so incredible for me. I have grown a lot and I want to keep growing. I have written a little bit about renewing my mind. The things she wrote about I have been working on. She has written a lot of really good stuff since she has been on this team. If you have been on this team for a year or more,you know she writes a lot. She wrote a few days ago that she is doing some type of recipe book, or some thing like that, so she has not written as much lately. well, I hope you like reading some of these old threads. There has been a, you can be thankful every day thread - from a -z, that, as wonderful as is , blocks some threads from staying on our team page. At times it only stays on the front page for a day. So, I am mixing things up a bit. Hope you don't mind.

This thread is very old. It is actually VERY OLD, like a year old. So AWAITING has NOT just had surgery. I have started to dig deep into our threads,honoring things that people have written.

What a good word. I definitely needed to read this today. Thanks for sharing!

"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body." 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

As Christians we don't have a choice if we are going to serve the Lord in the way He COMMANDS!. I found out the hard way there is NO maybe you can do it this way, just try in with the Lord. To coin a phrase "It's His way or the HIGHWAY!" Sometimes we may think itís callous of the Lord to command that way but letís get real. If He didnít direct our ways , we would be in such a HUGE MESS!.

ROM 12:1- Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship.

2- Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

3- For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.

10- Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.

11- Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

12- Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION

Itís an uncompromising order, but we have no choice if we are going to SERVE THE LORD1


The Lord Is My Strength

When I said, ďMy foot is slipping,Ē your love, O Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul. The Lord has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge. Psalms 94:18-19, 22

Thank you for the Corinthians verse...I, too, have a medical problem and I have let my husband shoulder much of the burden of keeping the house and the children while I, relieved to finally have a diagnosis, allowed myself to let things go. Including myself and this earthly body. I started attending church in April and was saved shortly thereafter. A month or two before, I had felt something drawing me to faith.
Thank You, God-I now realize it was Him calling me.
I am now trying to turn things around and get this earthly body back to where He wants it to be-healthy and fit. And I am also slowly working on getting my life the same way. I thank Him, not as often as I should, for my wonderful husband.
We can do anything, if we just let Him work through us!

Praise the Lord for your having a right heart before God with these neighbors. You are being a wonderful example and I know it is sometimes maddening when you wonder why they don't get it? Their eyes are still blind to the truth because satan has blinded them. We need to pray for these people for you too. So, that's what I will do. Your reward in heaven will be great, keep the faith.
In His name, Lori-lee emoticon


Ps. 5:11,12
But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favor wilt thou compass him with a shield.

2 Corinthians 5

5 God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
6 So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord.
7 That is why we live by believing and not by seeing.
8 Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord.
9 So our aim is to please him always, whether we are here in this body or away from this body.
10 For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in our bodies.


I wonder all the time who is watching me. What I say, where I go, what I do. We are suppose to be representatives of Christ. How we live is a huge reflection of whether or not non Christians will hunger for the Lord and accept Him as there PERSONAL SAVIOR!

As family we have been dealing with one of our neighbors. Our daughter and I have spoken to them many times about how the Lord can and will help them if only they would ask and turn their lives over to Him. But it never fails, when there is trouble, they want religion. As soon as things get better, well it wonít take much to guess the outcome. Itís not that our lives have been perfect by any means. I especially am going through a medical problem. I recently had minor back surgery and because Iím a diabetic, itís taking forever to heal. Itís bad enough that Iím confined to a wheelchair. But I had to learn a hard lesson in life that the more I complained the more difficult it was not just for me but also my family. Many times I took the easy way out and left the burden on my husband and our daughter. It wasnít until I had a long talk with myself and I listened to the still small but strong voice in my heart of hearts , that I made a choice to do more for myself. The changes havenít been much but each change in my actions gives relief to my family. My goal is one day to become independent enough so I donít have to rely on them.

My neighbors in a way have a handicap. Itís called COMMONSENSEITES. Instead of sitting down and figuring out how to handle a situation that had arrived or even better yet preventing it from happening, they come to us to help them. We help them when we can along with giving them some advice. But itís like PREACHING TO THE WALL!



Matthew 25:35

For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in;

Every time I get upset and donít want to help them, this scripture verse pops up in my mind and I give in. Sometimes itĎs costly to us but we canĎt refuse and go against the LordĎs will. One day maybe they will make a strong commitment and ask the Lord to come into their hearts. Until then we must do the work of the Lord and be an example, so that they and others will see Christ in us..
