While I’m Waiting…


Small Town Browns

I didn’t realize I would enjoy having a blog this much.  When I started, I didn’t really have a plan, but as I posted more, I set a goal to write one post a week, and this week, I’m slacking.  Things at our house are crazy busy, and super slow all at the same time.  We have our usual craziness with Ben’s work, church activities, family activities, and working on the farm.  It seems like a free day as been a rare treasure.  At the same time, we had very different expectations about where we would be right about now and so we talk about the future with a lot of ifs and maybes.

Last year, I wrote a post about how God had put it on our heart to pursue fostering and adoption of a specific young man.  The first step, for us, would be selling our home for a larger space. …

LIFE IS BRIEF


James 4:14

Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

Walking in The Light ~


A reflection of Christ

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Walking in the Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When we walk in the light,
we will recognize sin
we will see the darkness
that still creeps within.

We will see the rebellion,
of our old wicked ways
we will smell the stench
of our own spiritual decay.

When we walk in the light,
we will see all the wrong
we will know to this world
we no longer belong.

We will see our greediness,
our lusts for former things
we’ll know not to fall again
into the traps they bring.

When we walk in the light,
from temptation we will flee
for the light shines brighter
then the darkness we see!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:7

“But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light,
we have fellowship one with
another, and the blood of
Jesus Christ his Son
cleanseth us from all sin.”

CREATION: A BIRTH FROM GOD!


HEBREW HONEYCOMB
CREATION: A BIRTH FROM GOD!

William Andrew Dillard

 

“Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.” Psalm 90:1-2. Thus does the Bible re-affirm creation as coming from God, but uniquely here as a birth from God. The term “brought forth” is in the ancient Hebrew language “Yalad” which mean “to give birth to.” Think with me for a minute or two.
In the relentless search for human mastery, science has learned that all material is made up of atoms. But we must know what the basic building block of material is. So with progress, man achieved the splitting of the atom. It was found that all atoms are made up of neutrons, protons, and electrons. Are these the most basic components of all material? No. It has been more recently discovered that these are made up of smaller building blocks called quarks. But the attempts to split a quark to see what it is made of has been unsuccessful to date. Men have made vaunted progress on most all fronts in these end-time days, but they still do not know what material really is. Incidentally, all of these components of material are themselves invisible to the human eye. So, just what is material anyway? The far reaches of science must limit itself to explaining it as quarks combined to make electrons, protons, and neutrons which combine to made atoms which combine to make all known material elements. So, if all material is made from the same components how is one material expression stone, another wood, another earth, etc. Puzzles can be fun.
How much easier it is for the man of faith to simply believe the Bible! Material, whatever its basic components are came directly from God Who describes these things as a birth from Him. They express themselves in various different forms according to His command and direct will. True science is defined as “systematized facts” and the fact is that men will not produce anything factual that contradicts the Holy Word. One wonders just how many man hours and tax dollars could be saved if men would simply admit the component of faith into their lives!

Grace Is a Dirty Word ~


Grace and Faith fit together

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Grace is a Dirty Word ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Grace is a dirty word,
the devil, he hates it
for there isn’t any room
in his plans for it to fit.

He knows it gives power,
to those who are weak
he knows God’s mercy
is not just for the meek.

He hates the Gospel,
of faith through grace
he despises the fact
this truth we embrace.

He detests the control,
grace bestows on us
it piques him to know
in God we put our trust.

Grace is a dirty word,
the devil knows so well
that those who have it . . .
wont’ be joining him in hell!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8

“For by grace are ye saved
through faith;
and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:”
