The elusive trousers

Where do I start, Let’s see, well I had switched on the light inside my kitchen, and noticed the light wasn’t working, figured maybe, the building’s power was out, because, I could hear someone working down the hall inside one of the vacant apartments, after determining it was the bulb, I had decided that I would head over to “Wal-Mart” on my home from work.

That settled I had gone to the bathroom to brush my teeth, and after heading  back into the kitchen, I noticed on the dining room floor  was an envelope. I picked it up and turned it over, I was in shock to see it was my utility bill.

I quickly got dressed headed out the door for work and stopping at the nearest Kroger, to pick up  a money order. It is my belief, that the Lord had just prevented a big problem,  for had I not gone into the Dining room, my electricity might have been shut off.

While at work, my trousers were acting up again they weren’t sitting properly on my waist, and it was driving me crazy. It was so, frustrating, they were just too loose, I had gone to “Wal-Mart” many times but, it seemed every time, I had gone there they never had my size, so, instead of buying the “Dickies” that have a much stiffer waistband, I had to buy these other trousers, I wasn’t happy with them, but, I really didn’t have a choice. While at work, I thought about how I had wished I had a pair of “Dickies” trousers.

,After work I headed over to  “Wal-Mart” as planned, to see if  they had the Light bulb that I was looking for. I started heading down one of the clothing aisles to head to the back of the store

As I was walking by one of the clothing aisles, on the end cap were to my amazement several pairs of “Dickies” trousers, that I had looked for months, in my size I couldn’t believe it, Thank you Jesus, what a Great God we serve, I kept thanking the Lord I was so happy.

As for the bulbs, I didn’t find them, I figured the next time I’ll head over to “HomeDepot“and check for them there.

God gets the Glory!!! Praise the LORD

God’s Blesssing

While asleep I had this dream it was a Casino setting, in the old west, In front of me was this round light brown round card table. Someone laid out  a five dollar bill and two ones in front of me.

Awhile back, I had to buy some tires, for the coming winter and was going to use the money from my vacation that i had cashed in but, God had other plans.

My brother had sent me a 100.00 check for Christmas(in January) that I hadn’t yet deposited it into my  bank account. I had sent Toyota 50.00 on my last payment.

After the dream I received $400.00 in Cash inside of an envelope (As I was walking from my mom’s apartment on this past Sunday, past one of the vehicles in the parking lot, my eyes caught the license plate on a vehicle it read Malachi 1) from the same brother. In the end of my dream, I heard a voice say $ 547.50, I later received my bill in the mail from Toyota, which came to the total of $547.36. Isn’t God Wonderful, he gave me 500.00 to pay off the tires and even told me how much my bill from Toyota was going to be minus the 14 cents. Like a friend told me today when I told her about the situation “He is an Awesome God” God Bless!!!

Remember God always gets the glory!!!!

Putting God First. Giving God the Glory!!!

Superiority of the Gospel

Today, we are in the book of Galatians, chapter 3:

As I read the chapters below, the Holy Spirit spoke to me, I  have in the past done these same things, always trying to do this on my own, trying to do by my own human efforts and nothing was working, and I couldn’t figure out why.

 

In the past, i was really having some time with sexual sin, it wasn’t until, I went to the altar, that the Lord removed it from my life, this whole chapter just speaks to me and maybe, it will speak to you also. For months I was  always wondering why the Holy Spirit would have me either around this chapter or why I would come across this chapter time after time.   Now,  I know why.

 

Just like it says in the book of Zechariah 4:6

6Then he said to me, “This is what the lord says to Zerubbabel: It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the lord of Heaven’s Armies.

Oh, foolish Galatians! Who has cast an evil spell on you? For the meaning of Jesus Christ’s death was made as clear to you as if you had seen a picture of his death on the cross. Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the law of Moses? Of course not! You received the Spirit because you believed the message you heard about Christ. How foolish can you be? After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort? Have you experienced  so much for nothing? Surely it was not in vain, was it?

I ask you again, does God give you the Holy Spirit and work miracles among you because you obey the law? Of course not! It is because you believe the message you heard about Christ.

In the same way, “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.”  The real children of Abraham, then, are those who put their faith in God.
What’s more, the Scriptures looked forward to this time when God would declare the Gentiles to be righteous because of their faith. God proclaimed this good news to Abraham long ago when he said, “All nations will be blessed through you.”  So all who put their faith in Christ share the same blessing Abraham received because of his faith.
10 But those who depend on the law to make them right with God are under his curse, for the Scriptures say, “Cursed is everyone who does not observe and obey all the commands that are written in God’s Book of the Law.”  11 So it is clear that no one can be made right with God by trying to keep the law. For the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.”  12 This way of faith is very different from the way of law, which says, “It is through obeying the law that a person has life.”

13 But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”  14 Through Christ Jesus, God has blessed the Gentiles with the same blessing he promised to Abraham, so that we who are believers might receive the promised  Holy Spirit through faith.

The Law and God’s Promise

15 Dear brothers and sisters,  here’s an example from everyday life. Just as no one can set aside or amend an irrevocable agreement, so it is in this case. 16 God gave the promises to Abraham and his child.  And notice that the Scripture doesn’t say “to his children, ” as if it meant many descendants. Rather, it says “to his child”—and that, of course, means Christ. 17 This is what I am trying to say: The agreement God made with Abraham could not be canceled 430 years later when God gave the law to Moses. God would be breaking his promise. 18 For if the inheritance could be received by keeping the law, then it would not be the result of accepting God’s promise. But God graciously gave it to Abraham as a promise.
19 Why, then, was the law given? It was given alongside the promise to show people their sins. But the law was designed to last only until the coming of the child who was promised. God gave his law through angels to Moses, who was the mediator between God and the people. 20 Now a mediator is helpful if more than one party must reach an agreement. But God, who is one, did not use a mediator when he gave his promise to Abraham.

21 Is there a conflict, then, between God’s law and God’s promises? Absolutely not! If the law could give us new life, we could be made right with God by obeying it. 22 But the Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of sin, so we receive God’s promise of freedom only by believing in Jesus Christ.

God’s Children through Faith

23 Before the way of faith in Christ was available to us, we were placed under guard by the law. We were kept in protective custody, so to speak, until the way of faith was revealed.
24 Let me put it another way. The law was our guardian until Christ came; it protected us until we could be made right with God through faith. 25 And now that the way of faith has come, we no longer need the law as our guardian.
26 For you are all children  of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.  28 There is no longer Jew or Gentile,  slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children  of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you.

Putting God First!!!!

God works in mysterious ways

This happened awhile back, there was an employee that had mentioned of trying to find a house to rent and what I believe I can remember she had looked at several, one morning as I began to pray, I believe the Lord had put it on my heart to pray for her, when I got to work, that day, this person began mentioning a series of events, where she had gone to look at this house, and had later spoken to the Land Owner, who had asked if she had any trouble in finding the key box, because three other people had come to look at the house and for some weird reason hadn’t been able to find the key box. She explained that she didn’t find any problem in finding the box,  I told her I had prayed for her earlier that morning. God gets the Glory!!! Putting God First!!!!

tart cherry juice

 

Awhile back i was inside Kroger, and i wanted to get some Tart Cherry juice for the arthritis, that I was having with my feet, and i didn’t want to try the one with sugar.

i’m looking all over the place for some and couldn’t find any, then it was like the Lord I believe was prompting me to ask him.

So, I  asked the Lord, where could i find some Tart Cherry Juice, and i heard this small voice, say, behind you. I’m thinking  behind you?

I was over by the frozen hamburger, by the bakery, I turned around my shopping cart, began looking I was still not finding it, this time I believe he told me it was by the Organic, I’m thinking I don’t know where that is, then sure enough, next to the raisins, there it was . Praise God, Thank you Jesus, sorry for doubting you.

God Gets the glory, Putting God First!!!!

So, who was Saint Nicolas

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Nicholas

Saint Nicholas (Greek: Ἅγιος Νικόλαος, Hágios Nikólaos, Latin: Sanctus Nicolaus); (15 March 270 – 6 December 343),[3][4] also called Nikolaos of Myra, was a historic 4th-century Christian saint and Greek[5] Bishop of Myra, in Asia Minor (modern-day Demre, Turkey).[6] Because of the many miracles attributed to his intercession, he is also known as Nikolaos the Wonderworker (Νικόλαος ὁ Θαυματουργός, Nikólaos ho Thaumaturgós). His reputation evolved among the faithful, as was common for early Christian saints,[7] and his legendary habit of secret gift-giving gave rise to the traditional model of Santa Claus through Sinterklaas.

The Term Santa Claus

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Claus

Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, or simply Santa (Santy in Hiberno-English), is a legendary figure of Western culture who is said to bring gifts to the homes of well-behaved (“good” or “nice”) children on Christmas Eve (24 December) and the early morning hours of Christmas Day (25 December).[1] The modern Santa Claus grew out of traditions surrounding the historical Saint Nicholas, a fourth-century Greek bishop and gift-giver of Myra, the British figure of Father Christmas, the Dutch figure of Sinterklaas (himself based on Saint Nicholas), the German figure of the Christkind (a fabulized Christ Child), and the holidays of Twelfth Night and Epiphany and their associated figures of the Three Kings (based on the gift-giving Magi of the Nativity) and Befana. Some maintain Santa Claus also absorbed elements of the Germanic god Wodan, who was associated with the pagan midwinter event of Yule and led the Wild Hunt, a ghostly procession through the sky.

A candy cane or peppermint stick is a cane-shaped stick candy often associated with Christmastide,[1] as well as Saint Nicholas Day.[2] It is traditionally white with red stripes and flavored with peppermint, but is also made in a variety of other flavors and colors.
