My Bible Stack (with Videos)

IMG_1579-001

This morning I decided to film a video (Part 1 and 2)  about the Bible Stack under my desk. I have such a close relationship with Scripture as it is the vehicle most often used by the Holy Spirit to teach and guide me into timeless truths.

Checklist for Christians

WP_20150508_11_51_13_Pro (1)

But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:8-11

So, I had to actually create two posts (the other is right here) about my conclusions, or better stated, ramblings, about  1 & 2  Thessalonians. So many of my favorite verses, and if you have read me for any length of time you know that I have many. OK, so the whole Bible is my favorite (except maybe Leviticus of which I am forcing myself to appreciate because it is still very important in the overall scheme of things ie. basically God is saying this is how it needs to be PEEPS! So probably it will be my favorite SOMEDAY!)

Anyhoo…

Onward Christian Soldier (#LentChallenge Concluding Thoughts)

Here it is almost the end of April and I am just getting around to sharing a few thoughts on my latest journey which concluded Easter Sunday. Sort of (more on that in a second). I guess what I mean to say is, I am on a never-ending journey as a Christian. But, I have to say the #LentChallenge  I participated in was a wonderful tool in resetting my eyes towards the One whose eyes are ever upon me.

Journeying with Jesus -Into the Wilderness and Beyond

 

WP_20150228_13_24_05_Pro

 

These mornings I continue to journey through the Gospels along with others for Margaret Feinberg’s #LentChallenge and I am thankful for words on pages that come alive with Spirit and Truth. These words I read are forever new as they are read,  if read with a heart that is willing, available…hungry for truth. This morning as I sat and tried to quell the voices and distractions assaulting my mind, a song came to me, and drew me into His presence and out of myself…because out of my SELF is where I need to be to hear Jesus. The song? It’s called Fill My Cup, Lord, and I was introduced to it by a lovely woman of the Word named Connie, many years ago. She gave it to me on a CD she had made with her voice and spirit singing, and it remains a part of my brain’s hard drive to this day.  When I hear it in my mind, it’s always her voice ministering grace and truth to me.

“Fill my cup, Lord-I lift it up, Lord

Come and quench this thirsting of my soul,

Bread of Heaven,  feed me till I want no more

Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole. “

A Week’s Worth of Jesus?

 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

I am on a journey through the Gospels this Lent Season via Margaret Feinberg’s Lent Challenge. 4 Gospels, 40 days, and here I am wrapping up week 1 and feeling more in love with my Savior than ever before.

See, reading the Bible is not burdensome. But, being a Christian who makes no time for Jesus makes no sense at all to me. You want to feel burdened as a Believer? Ignore God’s Word, don’t pray and tell yourself you are too busy carrying your burdens to spend time with God.

Of course Jesus offers to carry those burdens, but you go just ahead and trudge along carrying them yourself. Friend, that is just foolishness!

If you want to carry your burdens, be my guest but don’t blame God when you’re weary from it.

The thing is we are all busy. We all have the same amount of time in a day. We all have to choose how we will slice up that day according to our priorities. And the bottom line is we get off track. We do. I do and you do. Unless of course you’re a Pharisee….

That’s a whole other blog post.
