Fire In The Sky

 

Exodus 13

21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:

22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.

The Old Must Die

The old must die to make way for the new. Rebirth comes only when you are ready to let go and not a moment sooner.

 

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

(Forgive) Post for Day 358

I was bullied and picked on because I was so different to everyone else, and I definitely didn’t believe or even know I was fabulous back then. But those hard times made me everything I am today. It’s all water under the bridge now, but being bullied and going through adversity definitely made me stronger.

Forgive That You May Be Forgiven

Forgiveness starts with you. Forgive yourself, as well as those that have wronged you. If you cannot move pass old transgressions you will never truly move forward. What joy is in a journey that ends too soon?

 

Ephesians 4:

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Another 60lbs of Produce for $10

The line stretched back around the church parking lot! I don’t think I have ever eaten so well, felt so good or been so healthy and happy! My cravings for sugars and meats have drastically diminished and I heal from my workouts quickly. I can’t seem to get over the energy and strength that I find in the new me and it just keeps getting better each day… Thank you Father in Heaven!

 

Daniel 1:

5 And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king’s meat, and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king.

6 Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah:

7 Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abed-nego.

8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

9 Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs.

10 And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who hath appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he see your faces worse liking than the children which are of your sort? then shall ye make me endanger my head to the king.

11 Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,

12 Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink.

13 Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king’s meat: and as thou seest, deal with thy servants.

14 So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days.

15 And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king’s meat.

16 Thus Melzar took away the portion of their meat, and the wine that they should drink; and gave them pulse.

17 As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.

18 Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar.

19 And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king.

Matthew 16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

The Beast Within

Your true nature is always hidden just below the surface of your civility.

Psalms 73:22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.

Practical and Prudent

Always consider a task before committing to it. Though the Lord may provide, a fool may mistake their desires over His. After all, if you can’t even swim maybe you shouldn’t try to walk on water.

 

If you want to build your castles in the sky, first you must establish your foundations on solid ground.

 

Luke 14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?

Getting Healthy

I’m a little too tired for a full post today. Teresa and I have been on a health kick lately where we are eating better and exercising more and today we did our best jog yet. 3.4 miles trip around the lake and we intermittently  jogged about 2/3’s of it! That’s basically a 5k! Go team us! Thank you Lord!

 

1 Corinthians 9:

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
