Studying for me lately has been taking a word and digging deeper with it…connecting that word to a spiritual truth. While browsing through blog posts last night there is this thing called daily word promts on The Daily Post…to get your blog more attention, or to help you think of something to write about.

So the prompt yesterday was enroll, at first I was just curious to read, not really write, but after reading a few I decide I would give this promt a try… if I write I will always try and make sure it connects to the truth! Hence all of the Bible verses at the end! The truth has been very powerful to me in my life…hence my blog name… So anyways if you have any questions please do ask! My writing is only inspired by the truth, but to change your life you must not read only what I have to say, but the word of God can only give the the true and real TRUTH, I hope you too may desire it too! God bless ❤️

The book of life,
Have you enrolled yourself?

Maybe your there but…someone else enrolled you so your not really there…

The book of life, the word,
We study, to receive the knowledge,
To receive the life.

They were destroyed for their lack of knowledge,
Not because of an unrighteous judge,
But because they chose not to Desire life,

Not to Desire the book of life
Not to Desire the word,
The word of truth,
The truth that brings forth knowledge
Knowledge of peace,
Knowledge of understanding,
Knowledge of truth,
Wisdom.

Instead they chose to enroll in the book of self righteousness,
The book of fighting this,
The book of confusion,
The book of losing,
The book of I don’t knows,
Highs and lows,
Sorrows.

Wanting to find that happiness
But not wanting to give up that one thing,
That can change it all,
And that is yourself!

I don’t believe it they say,
Who, what, where, when, why?
I mean your telling me I have to die,
That seems like a lie,
But they didn’t even try.

Maybe they took a look in the book
But they gave up
as soon as it got tough.

You know that part where you must die,
In order to receive life,
Makes no sense,
So I will just live my life on the fence,
Of this truth,
Because it probably just a spoof,
I deal with this pain,
Instead of use it for a gain,
Of of love that has overcome,
This thing called death,
To give life, love, peace,
Wisdom, knowledge, and truth.

And the only thing that separates you,
Is you.
and what (lie)s within you.

take away the lies replace them with truth,
The truth of the one who died for you.
don’t look around and ask yourself who’s with you,
don’t say hey what about you,
this salvation is only for you,
what you don’t know is that God see’s all,
he has it covered, but his only concern is you.
are you covered?

covered with, shame, blame,
or covered with a NAME.

 

Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. Hebrews 10:19-25

Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and whoever loves the Father loves the child born of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and observe His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is the One who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for the testimony of God is this, that He has testified concerning His Son. The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son. And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. 1 John 5:1-12

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the Lord,
And He will have compassion on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
And do not return there without watering the earth
And making it bear and sprout,
And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth;
It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
“For you will go out with joy
And be led forth with peace;
The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you,
And all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Isaiah 55: 6-12

To the angel of the church in Sardis write:
He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars, says this: ‘I know your deeds, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God. So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you. But you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments; and they will walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’ Revelation 3:1-6

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”
And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He *said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Then He said to me, “ It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” Revelation 20:1-9

how will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard, God also testifying with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will. Hebrews 2:3-4

Therefore My people go into exile for their lack of knowledge;
And their honorable men are famished,
And their multitude is parched with thirst.
Therefore Sheol has enlarged its throat and opened its mouth without measure;
And Jerusalem’s splendor, her multitude, her din of revelry and the jubilant within her, descend into it. Isaiah 5:13-14

 

Beloved… The Liebster Award

Liebster: a person much liked or loved by someone else…

Beloved… let us love one another for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God he that loveth not knoweth not God for God is love, beloved let us love one another
1 John 4:7 and 8

I mean, I’m so constantly in awe of how God works, I hope that through this blog you can find inspiration and motivation to dive into his awesomeness too, it is incomparable to anything that this world has to offer! Because he teaches something about love that grows and grows each day that you put your faith in him!! So beloved, I have known this verse since I was a little girl because it was a song we used to sing and the tune was so catchy that it became on of my favorite songs to sing, also one of my favorite scriptures.

A blog post about love will come soon after this, because the love we are reading about here is a love called agape and God and Christ are the only ones who who have truly perfected this love, this love is not based on feelings but actions causing reactions!

But right now I want to thank Cristina Tuttle, that is how love works after all, through encouragement, uplifting each other, and helping each other grow! She took the time out to consider another person like me to motivate me to keep working towards a goal and ultimately when we are encouraging others to live a life for God that is love! If someone in your life is trying to help you grow closer to God please don’t ever take offense to that but be thankful that they loved you enough to try and help you, you know love doesn’t always come in a pretty package like a box of chocolates wrapped in a big red heart! But sometimes it does and in this case the encouragement from my first post being nominated for a liebster award felt like a box of chocolates wrapped in a big red heart! I’m new to blogging this was my very first post and it really did encourage me! So thank you dear friend I hope I can do the same for you! Thank you for inspiring me and can I just say a little encouragement goes a long way!

Please do check out her blog!

My questions for you all are…

What brought you to blogging, and how has it changed you, and/or helped you?

Saved? it happens frequently as a type this post…It becomes saved to no longer disappear, protected from an accidental computer crash…What does saved mean on behalf of your life? Does it scare you to think of not being saved?

I believe the heart is the most fragile part of the human body, do you agree? Why or why not?

Thinking of the heart, what makes yours happy?

 

And to answer theses questions from

https://friedpixels.wordpress.com/2018/02/02/the-liebster-award/

Question #1:

If I could enter my favorite book, and permanently replace one of the characters, what would it be, who would you replace and why?

Of course I’m gonna have to take this one into my favorite book of all, I’m not really a reader of books other than self help books, children’s story books, and the Bible the best self help book of all if I do say so myself.

Found in the Bible in the the book of;

Luke 10:38-42

Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word. But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me.” But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”

I would love to be Mary the sister of Martha having Jesus in our home and seated as his feet listening to his word! As I live by faith I know I have the ability to also be at his feet but many times I find myself as Martha distracted by all of the preparations and cares of this world that I don’t always give myself the opportunity to sit at his feet and listen to his word! I would love to be there in that moment!

“Find me here at your feet again,
Everything I am, reaching out I surrender,
Come sweep me up in your love again,
And my soul will dance,
In the wings of forever”

Touch the sky- Hillsong United

One of my favorite songs at the moment, and this verse gets me every time.  I pray I find myself more often in this moment.

Question #2

What is the one impossible thing that you won’t ever do?
I absolutely, hate the eerie, creepy, scary stuff and you will never find me testing out a ouija board! I don’t like to put myself into situations that are going to play with my mind in ways like that!

Question #3:

When you were little and people asked you what you wanted to be when you grew up, did you grow up to be what you wanted to be?
My mom was a stay at home Mom so my whole life I watched her and that was her job. She dedicated herself to her children and husband everyday and I observed the ways she took care of the home, my dream was to be a stay at home Mom just like her! And yes I’m very fortunate to have a husband who works very hard that I may stay a home too! I’m a mom of 3 little ones who are huge blessings, But let me just say this it’s not as easy as she made it look!

Question #4:

So…adulting. how goes it?
Yep adulting, sure makes me realize how much time I wasted away as a kid, teenager, and young adult but that’s just a part of life, as kids I guess thats their job, to have long boring days that your just trying to figure everything out, childhood is actually awesome now that I’m and adult I sometimes wish I could be that carefree again, so I live through my little humans, but adulting it can be a challenge, as I watch my kids grow I think back on those feelings I had as kid, just full of joy and love and laughter…sometimes my burdens get to them though and I try really hard not to let them, because it’s is such a sweet thing to have that innocence! So adulting…I just a ball of emotions, and challenges, sometimes feels like that ball is rolling on a roller coaster track, but I tell you the beauty of that surrender once again, kind of takes you off that roller coaster on to some pretty amazing wings, that fly you around seeing the world as if your a kid again,
Knowing that whatever happens you have someone special that you loves very much watching over you! Adulting is kind of figuring out how to release yourself from all of those burdens again, having my precious little babies really help me keep all of that in perspective, I mean do we really need to worry about half of the things we do anyways? Christ tells us no!

“And He said to His disciples, “For this reason I say to you, do not worry about your life, as to what you will eat; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds! And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life’s span? If then you cannot do even a very little thing, why do you worry about other matters? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith! And do not seek what you will eat and what you will drink, and do not keep worrying. For all these things the nations of the world eagerly seek; but your Father knows that you need these things. But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you. Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭12:22-32‬ ‭

That’s where I’m at so far with this adulting thing!

Question #5:

If you had access to unlimited resources, tools, help, money, etc. How would you make this day great? A day that would go down in history.

“”Sell your possessions and give to charity; make yourselves money belts which do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near nor moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭12:33-34‬ ‭

I do have unlimited access, kind of falls in line, with the whole adulting thing, so I guess that would only require of me time! I wish sometimes I could just pause, maybe, get a phone call from God telling me exactly what to do, but that is the reason he loves us so is he gives us this wonderful thing called free will so we’re not all just a bunch of robots, my heart and mind sometimes pull me in directions that mess me up! But that too is the beauty of time we learn, we grow, and surrendering daily, helps us see clearer and clearer each day and I’m just waiting for that day when I get to be with him, that will be the day that goes down in history! For now I get to enjoy each day trying my very best, and giving it my all!

 

Question #6:

what is the most fascinating piece of advise you have ever received?

“And He said to him, ” ‘ YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭22:37‬ ‭

Doesn’t get better than that right there, I work on this daily, with a reflection on my heart, mind, and soul! My prayer is that I can pass this off to as many people possible, because this advise, word,
Commanndment….is really the center of the true meaning to life, and that is to Fall deeply in Love with our Father in Heaven, our Creator, our everything!

Thank you for reading, God bless! ❤️🙏
