I am in such a hurry this morning. My husband is home today ...thankfully, because the carpet man is coming in a few hours. I think longingly of my knitting at times but it will have to wait another day or so. I've just been having such fun, printing some things on vellum which I've never done before. All because my DH asked me to make a few copies of things for him. Ahh, the wonderful world at our fingertips with a computer. And, isn't blogging just the most relaxing thing ever? Wish I had time to come round visiting, but alas, not today. I'm thinking of you all though and wishing you a fine day...smile.
We heard excellent messages at church yesterday, I am thankful for our Pastor. If you do not attend a good Bible teaching church I hope you will start looking for one this week that preaches and teaches God's word. I was saved sitting under the preaching of the King James Version Bible and believe me, the word of God is powerful. "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Hebrews 4:12
My Bible footnote has this comment..."The living word of God has the power to reach to the inmost parts of one's personality and to judge the innermost thoughts. Soul and Spirit. The meanaing is that the Word pierces to the depths of soul and spirit, not between the two. They stand for the innermost facets of our immaterial nature, just as joints and marrow the material aspect. Both soul and spirit can be involved in what pleases or displeases God." (Ryrie Study Bible, KJV).~~~~God put his finger right on the very heartbeat of this sinner and it was like looking into a mirror and seeing an image ....myself, marred with the taint of sin in my heart. And God, seeing my lost condition, offered himself through Jesus Christ, of the cross of Calvery...to save me and set me free from the comdemnation of sin. Sin so ugly that it deserved to go to hell. Sin so wicked it must be seperated from a holy God forever. The more I tried to tell myself how good I was, the truth could not be denied. I was a liar and sinner....God alone is sinless. I went forward that Mother's Day in church and my Pastor met me at the front of the church, and I knealt that day and confessed to God my sin and doubts and he saved me. I have never been without his cleansing and sweet peace since....Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word..."in hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began" Titus Chapter one, verse two.
