Good-Bye and Hello

Well, today is the last day of the Old Year. At the beginning of this year I set out to write and draw everyday. I did that 238 times in 365 days... I am ashamed I didn't do it everyday as I hoped, yet I am also glad I had the opportunity to do it as often as I did. God blessed me in many ways this year and even though as I look back through these post I see the unfaithful attitude I had at times, I know that even then God was with me. He had me go through some of those things to make me who I am today and who I will be tomorrow, even if I don't see that now.

I am going to continue to blog, not everyday, maybe not even weekly... I will write, and share the things that God lays on my heart to share... I will be coming up with a new title for this blog since if I am not writing daily I can't have that name...

It is my prayer that this new year will be a trek filled with wonderful things that God has planned for me, for you, for all of us. Good or Bad, Happy or Sad, life can be lived in Faith, Love, and Joy...

Now Good Bye to the Old and Hello to The New!

Thank you Lord for the world of possibility that lies before us!

Yesterday I read a devotion that spoke about this verse in Hebrews 4:12
"For the word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of the soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and the intents of the heart."
After I read that devotion I read the passage from Proverbs for the day (Proverbs 27) The quote today is from that chapter. It always amazes me when things all come together in a way that can only be from God. Like going to Sunday school and learning about something that touched your heart and then the service being about that same thing, something you needed.... This was a similar event and happens quite often to me. I will read one thing and then the next will go along the same line... so here is what I am getting from these two passages.

The Bible says we are to be content (Philippians 4:11, I Timothy 6:8, Hebrews 13:5). This I think is speaking of our physical lives. To be content with our jobs, our living situations, and anything else that may come our way in this life. In our spiritual person, we should always be striving to be who God wants us to be. The word of God will help us to seek "perfection" to grow continually in the spirit. So spiritual we should not be content. The Bible talks about the milk and the meat of the word (I Corinthians 3:2,  Hebrews 5:12-13, I Peter 2:2). We should want to get to the meat of the word, deep thoughts and profound ideas that will bring us closer to the Christians God would have us to be.

If we become content with our lives spiritually then like the quote says, the "satisfied" soul loathes the honeycomb... They don't want the sweetest parts of the word anymore or any part for that matter. They are fine just where they are... "satisfied".

We should be like the person in the second part of the verse who is hungry and longing to learn and grow in the meat of the word, even if it is tough, bitter, hard to handle. Even if it steps on our toes and makes as want to hide. The word is what helps us grow and learn to be who God wants us to be, if we become satisfied with who we are spiritually we grow stagnant, and God has a hard time using us.

Lord, I long to never be content spiritually, I want to always be learning and growing in your word and your life for me. I do need to learn to be content in my circumstances so that those outward things of this world do not make me forget to look for the spiritual things you send my way. Thank-you for your word and your guidance in this world.

"A satisfied soul loathes the honeycomb, But to a hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet." ~Proverbs 27:7

The Quote:
"There is born to you this day in the City of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." ~Luke 2: 11
We do not know the actual day or hour that Christ was born. It happen many years ago in Bethlehem. God came to earth to live a perfect life, to teach us how we should live. He lived on this earth as a lamb without blemish, so that He could be the Last and most perfect sacrifice for us all! On a tree many years ago, our Savior died to set us free. He paid the ultimate price so we would not have too. I am so glad it didn't stop there.... He rose from the grave and is sitting at the right hand of the Father, waiting for all who will believe in Him to join Him!

God had such magnificent Love for us, even though we had turned our backs on Him many, many times tthat he gave us the most precious gift anyone can get.... Forgiveness.

May God bless you and keep you this Christmas Season and throughout the years to come.

Lord, I pray that you love would be manifested in each of our lives in a way that can only come from you and that we can share that love will all we meet! Thank-you for your most precious gift!
