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…

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…

We should live as if we were to die tomorrow….

What would I do if tomorrow was my last day? I would make a phone call or talk to each person I love I would tell them what they meant to me. I would speak encouragement into their life and affirm them and tell them exactly how much God loves them, I would tell them about my faith and about my Saviour Jesus and how much he loves them and has forgiven them and longs to be in their life. What would I have to lose??? I would ask them to forgive me for anything I may have done to hurt them. I would use every single minute to change the world I would leave behind. As a matter of fact that is how I hope I live my life now!!! ~Cam Richmond~ www.lightforlifeinspirations.com www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage www.facebook.com/sayaprayerforme www.facebook.com/theanswerIvefound www.facebook.com/lovewithoutexpectationspage www.facebook.com/RainbowsofLife1 www.facebook.com/AmazingEternalGrace

The Holy Grail of Love

Our mothers and our fathers can not save us and rescue us in the way we long for them to. As children our natural instinct, which is actually perhaps a supernatural instinct is to look to them for all of that. Sadly there are so many parents which devastate this undertaking to care for us, by their own frailty, their wounds and weaknesses or even by who they have become now, which may be just very hard or cold.Where did all this come from in them? Ironically from the same type of wounds that we may have received from them, either purposely or unwittingly. So still today, whether they have hurt us or not, we are longing for this rescue, saving, nurture and so much more from them and they may not themselves be able to give or receive what it is we long for. This supernaturally natural instinct is…

Love and Justice

Love and Justice For me, I don’t know about you, it’s so hard to understand love and judgment both being a part of God…. I am fairly certain that most people see God either as loving or judging… but the truth is that He is both love and justice. Before God created us the world was all ‘right’ but when sin came in, so did ‘wrong’. We see that if there are things are right, then there are also things that are  wrong too. If there is ‘right’ then there is there is ‘wrong’…   God is not all one attribute but his make up, not that I pretend to know or understand all of it, is complex and so He is both love and justice. Actually I think that love and justice are inseparable. However from a human, mortal standpoint…. trying to see the cohesion of love and justice is just…

Love while you can…

Love them while you can! Life turns on a dime… And even though we don’t have ‘dimes’ here in Australia the saying is as true as ever and this is often how life goes. We often think we have time, we often think we can do that later but loving is one thing that we shouldn’t put off for later, or think we have the time for because life is fragile and it fractures and it moves about in unpredictable ways and so we should love the people in our lives while we can. Here today… gone tomorrow… Another saying that strikes me, one of those sayings my mum used to say often. Sadly these days love can seem to be like that but from the people in life whom we hold the dearest, the ones that are there to stay, love should never be here today and gone tomorrow.…
