My Lifetime AAA Rating

  Don’t you just long to be told by someone that they are proud of you? Its something that we strongly desire as children without even knowing it and I don’t believe that desire ever truly goes away. I think that its just masked by the shell and the toughened exterior we develop or the coping mechanisms that we employ to ‘cover up’ the need altogether. I always knew I was loved but I don’t believe that I was ever encouraged or affirmed in my childhood. To some extent what we need the most are those occasional moments that we receive from someone that genuine conversation when they tell us how special we are, what we mean to them and how they feel about us, rather than just ‘good boy Johnny’. I have a sense that in my wider family that’s how it was, we knew we were loved but…

To be known by God….

  But if one loves God truly…[with affectionate reverence, prompt obedience, and grateful recognition of His blessing], he is known by God [recognized as worthy of His intimacy and love, and he is owned by Him]. ~1 Corinthians 8:3~   If you love God, you are KNOWN by God. Of course He knows us all. He knows about us all but the knowing referred to here I think is one of relationship. A commentary I read says of ‘known of him’ means: “is known of him — is known with the knowledge of approval and is acknowledged by God as His (Psalm 1:6; Gal 4:9; 2 Tim 2:19). To love God is to know God; and he who thus knows God has been first known by God (compare 1 Cor 13:12; 1 Pet 1:2). I want to know Him and be KNOWN by Him him! ~Cam Richmond~ My sites: www.lightforlifeinspirations.com www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage…

Faith in what or whom?

Faith in what? Many people lose their faith in religion. That’s not hard because religion is a bunch of a lot of man made rules governed by humans that are weak and frail and supposedly represent God, combine that with Gods laws which they have also twisted and complicated… when really they are so simple… “Love the Lord your God will all your heart soul mind and strength, and love your neighbour as you love yourself” ~Mat 22:37-40~ And He replied to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect). [Deut. 6:5.] This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself. [Lev. 19:18.] These two commandments sum up and upon them depend all the Law and the Prophets. I know I…

MyPsalms 82-84 ~ Letters to God

MYPSALMS  82-84 I’m reading through the Psalms and I’m writing my own MyPsalms… They are a wonderful way to connect God and I in real conversation. I hope you are enjoying them. Maybe you will feel inspired to write your own Psalms! My desire is to find this place of intimacy, this place of desire and knowing, this place of dependence on Him in all things. My days are so full that I just blow through them with working full-time and all the requirements of a family and then I wonder did I talk to God at all during the day?” MyPsalms 82-84 are below and the links to the album that will contain all of them =) I hope you enjoy them. To keep up with them each day please go and visit my Facebook page The Answer I’ve Found and see the Album ~My Psalms… Letters to God~ MyPsalm 82 Day 82 Read Psalm…

Surely 10 more minutes can’t hurt?

“The universe is not short on wake up calls. We’re just quick to hit the snooze button!” ~Brené Brown~ I was waiting for the alarm to go off. I had set it to go off at 6.45 am and then I had allowed myself to snooze… just another 10 minutes… In my half sleep state I was slightly wondering when the next alarm was going to go off but I allowed the lull of the moment to keep me in bed and knowing the second alarm would surely go off when it was time…. The bed was warm, it was still dark enough, and it was cold outside. Perfect orders for staying in bed.   Finally I dragged myself into consciousness and looked at the clock… Hmmmm 7.26am. How did it get to that? Could it be that I didn’t hear the second alarm? Could it be that I slept through it?…

What the world can’t give, the world can’t take away…

  What the world cant give, the world can’t take away… It really makes me sad that it’s becoming harder to say how I feel about God and my Saviour Jesus and also what I believe. You raise your head you get shot at these days, questioned, interrogated almost. I’m finding that it’s not alright to question other ‘religion’ but it’s fine to tear mine down. I could never be known as a bible basher, although I’m sure ALL those around me know exactly who I am and what I believe. Yes they may read what I write if they choose, (and if not then they are more than welcome to unfriended me rather than me being a nuisance to them), but unless they want to know more personally I won’t be shoving it down their throats. I think I’m a good representation of Gods love because even if what…
