What the Bible says---Issue 5

So today was another long day. Filled with homeschooling, house keeping and catching up on a show that I absolutely have fell in love with. But even through all that I took time to do my bible study.  I feel as though we should give God time out of our busy day regardless of how busy we may become. If you could just give him 30 minutes out of our day it would help you. 

On to me telling you about my study.

I read over in Jeremiah 29:11-12 Which says::

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
What is God telling us in these verses? God uses the word "I" twice in verse 11. He is saying that it is He not false prophets who knows of his plans. No one knows the plans of God except God.  We often do not know our own minds let alone could we ever begin to know what God's is. We often fear about what God pl…

Homeschool and Martin Luther King JR

Image
Today as we all know was MLK JR day. The day that The government set aside for us as a remembrance to this man. So today I decided in our homeschool we would learn a little bit about him. Of course I had to keep it on a first grade level of learning. My son is smart but didn't want to cause to many questions.  So what did I teach him about?

He learned of Martin's birthday which is January 15, 1929, he was born in Atlanta Georgia.

1947 he became a ordained Minister.

1953 he married Coretta Scott, in Marion Alabama.

In 1955-56 He led the bus boycott in Montgomery Alabama. Rosa Parks was arrested for not giving up her seat which was in the negro section of the bus to a white man. This started a year long boycott of the bus systems.

1963 He gave his speech "I HAVE A DREAM" on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to 200,000 people.

1964 he received the Nobel Peace Prize.

1968 he was assassinated in Memphis Tennessee. While there to lead a peaceful march.

1983 Congress declares the t…

What the Bible says--Issue 4

Today has been a long day but a good day indeed. You know when your in a ministry you need to be faithful to that ministry.  On Saturdays if we are available we go and have what is called Cottage Prayer Meeting with some of the people that are shut-in.  We have been doing this faithfully for a while now.  Not bragging but you know more could do this if they would. Visiting people is something that I was brought up doing. My mom and dad would go to peoples house and we would sit for hours on someones porch and have just a grand time enjoying the company of one another. Some of my fondest memories is on a porch at a place and with people that are very dear and near to my heart, even today.  My husband has fond memories growing up and doing the same thing.  Visiting people bring joy to some that may sit for weeks with no company. The only difference in what we do is we minister to them as we visit. MY husband is always telling them about something the Lord has laid on his heart and shari…

What the Bible says--Issue 3

The other night my preacher husband and I was discussing the differences in a few words biblcally. Sometimes preachers just preach what they have heard, or what has been handed down throughout the generations. Which should be a big no no. That is where a preacher confuses people, because most times they take the preacher at his word and don't research it for themselves.  Christian people have become lazy and rely on everyone else to do the work for them. I am so glad that I have a husband that will search and study it out for himself.  We say that if you're going to tell me about the bible show me where its at in the bible. Prove it to me.  

Any who, back to what I was saying about the words.We got into a discussion about what Unchaste, Chaste, Chastisement meant. 

We we found out that, 
Unchaste means::Relating to or engaging in sexual activity, especially of an illicit or extramarital nature:

Chaste means:: Abstaining from extramarital, or from all, sexual intercourse:
Not having…

What the Bible says--Issue 2

In the study today I read a verse in Psalms and it brought to question, how are you building and who is at the root of it?  You see when we take on a building project we have to start somewhere, it is usually at the beginning, we usually lay that corner stone first.  But you see there is some that think that you can build walls before you lay a foundation. 

In Psalms 127:1 it says Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.


So you see in this verse it's telling us that we need the Lord to build a house. Whether it be an artificial house, such as the temple, or the royal palace, or any structures for that matter. Solomon built many structures, but they would have never succeeded without the Lord. Of all things that we build or build upon it will only succeed if it depends entirely upon God's blessing. Psalms 127 verse 1 states that it is VAIN to attempt it otherwise. In all affairs we must loo…

Where has Manners WENT??

Just putting this out there.

Where has manners went?

The other night as I went into a local gas station, a man probably around my age walked in at the same time. He proceeded to go through the door first and then didn't even hold the door for me. I am still a woman aren't I?

I wanted to ask him if he was raised where men was superior to women and thought nothing of manners toward a woman. But as I have often said God clips my tongue shut many times, to show I have manners in not provoking anyone to anger. 

Moma's PLEASE teach your son's to be courteous to a woman. Teach them manners. Teach them to still open a door for a woman and let them pass by first. Teach them to be polite in conversation around a woman. 

The bible says : In Ephesians 4:29  Let no corruptcommunication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

Not only this manner, but the many others like Saying "may I" instead of &qu…

Jr. History Club--Homeschool Outing

Image
Yesterday was our monthly Jr. History Club meeting. This club meets once a month and we get to learn about all things history.  I know, I know, not everyone enjoys History, but my son is just 6 yrs old and I am trying to help him in learn to love it.  His instructor is an awesome godly lady who takes learning about history to a whole other level. She finds fun things for them to do, not just have them set in a classroom and do paper work. 

We went to the historic Nu Wray Inn that is in Burnsville NC. This is such a wonderful old building. Beautiful inside. It was built in 1833. It was placed on the National Historic Register in 1982.  Thomas Wolfe spent the night there in 1929 when he was a witness at a murder trial in Burnsville.Elvis Presley and William Sydney Porter (O. Henry) were also guests there. We had a wonderful time touring the house and its grounds. Below is a few pictures. I hope that if your ever in this area, you'll stop in for a spell at the Nu Wray for a stay in ou…

What the Bible says:::Issue 1

In 1 Corinthians 6:13 it reads like this, 

"Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body."

I taught this whole chapter in my Women's Bible Study Group. This one verse stuck with me and made me think about how many people do just this and have no worry about what God would have them do. Problem is most unsaved know no better, and most saved don't care as long as it okay with them. 

"What does that mean?"  Well let me break it down for you a little bit.

Paul is the one preaching here and trying to teach the people of Corinth about wrong ways.
Paul’s real subject here is other kinds of wrong desires. Wrong desires can take control of a person’s life and they can ruin that person’s relationship with God. The wrong kind of desires are not helpful to us. It will not improve our relationship with God. If we allow ourselves to give into those wrong d…
