The Marriage Bed – A Testimony

“Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled;” Hebrews 13:4

The Lord had to teach me what this verse meant, and how making love to my husband is holy, clean, and ordained by God.

I had some very misconstrued ideas about this subject. Such as; you do not make love with the lights on! You have to be quiet! You do not enjoy it, you endure it! You do not pursue or instigate sex, and you never, never, never, ever make love on Sunday!

Do any of these statements sound familiar? It was very hard for me to believe that God had anything to do with sex. I was wrong.

God, by His grace and through the Holy Spirit, revealed His word to me. How He created man and women to be one, both physically and spiritually. To…

Feeling Discouraged?

Image result for cartoon - feeling discouraged

I am feeling this today for it is one of the saddest days in American history. The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of gay “marriage.” Romans 1:26-27 God has called homosexuality “degrading their bodies, shameful lusts, unnatural relations, indecent acts, perversion and debrived minds.” And yet unrighteous people have said it’s okay and is now the law of the land. I need these scriptures today for my heart is very heavy. I must continually remind myself of who our Almighty God is and try to stay focused on Him. Man can do what they want but God is still in control. Amen.

“Let not your heart be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in Me.” John 14:1

“Peace, I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27

“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.” 2 Cor. 4:8-9

“Be confident of this very thing, that He which has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Phil. 1:6

“And let us not weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Gal. 6:9

Is it all for Naught?

images

What is it that we spend our lives striving for?

Is it the success of having those things

that last but a short time?

We reach for the moon and fall short,

only to feel as though we have failed.

He who is on high gives us His will,

gives us His direction,

and tells us what to strive for.

If our sights are set on earthly things

our heavenly life can be jeopardized.

For as we search for fulfillment here,

through work, play, and others,

we are blinded to the great rewards

our heavenly Father promises. 

He who is on high lovingly requests

we reach for His truth.

For it is His truth

and love

that sustains,

fills us with

satisfaction

and completeness.

Therefore,

reach for His life

and He will give you life,

forever more.

The Holy Spirit

It is atrocious what some have had done to them by those we love and are supposed to love us as Christ loves us. The stories are many and some are so horrid that they cannot be told. This is a fallen world and it is only by the Grace of God that any us that have experienced those childhood horrors have survived.

As children we were the victims of unspeakable evil but as adults we are left with the issues of guilt and shame. (along with many other issues) Guilt because we were blamed. “If you hadn’t done….” “If you had listened to me….” “I’m doing this because I love you” “I’m doing this for your own good.” “It’s our secret.” “You told! Now look what happened!” The blame comes in many forms.

I ask you this question – how is a child to defend herself/himself? We are taught…

1997 – 40 Million Plus

Todays statistics are probably even more staggering!

Cyber Support Group

These statistics were taken from RENEW HOPE FOR VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ABUSE. By Robert S. McGee and Harry Schaumburg.

*****

40 Million individuals have been victims of sexual abuse.

35% of all women have been abused.

Sexual abuse will probably increase in the future because of several factors:

1. Child pornography is a growing industry.

2. Step-families are increasing and in which a child is 8 times more likely to be abused. 17% of those raised by a step-father will be abused before age 14 as opposed to 2% raised by a biological father.

3. Numbers of untreated childhood sexual abuse victims may contribute to a growth in sexual abuse cases. 46% of imprisoned sex offenders who show a persistent, exclusive preference for children, were themselves sexually molested as children.

In one treatment program for compulsive sexual behavior 83% reported being victims of sexual abuse.

I’m sure the statistics for today are even more staggering! Pornography…

What Kind of Tree Are You?

No matter how scrawny our faith the Lord will grow it if we trust Him.

Unshakable Hope

Some might be disappointed, but this is not one of those quizzes like I see posted on Facebook. (There actually is one of those quizzes with this same title, but I didn’t take it because I was afraid that the results would show that I was Charlie Brown’s Christmas Tree).
tree-onlyTen or twelve years ago, let’s just say eleven, Mary and I were shopping at Home Depot. After finishing our shopping in the store, we wandered out to the garden department to look for some small trees. It was November, and most of the plants were marked down because they were making room for Christmas trees.

Mary got hung up looking at wreathes and other boring items, so I cruised my wheelchair over to go look at trees. As it turned out, there were not many trees left, and I didn’t see anything I was interested in. Just when I was…

Does Your Representative Support Barbaric Abortions?: Babies Limbs Are Cut Off

Inspirational Christian Blogs

baby-stop-abortion

Editors Note: Bottom line is abortion is wrong – period. Are you aware how gruesome and barbaric these murders of innocent babies are? The babies limbs are literally cut off and the head crushed – am I the only one that thinks these actions at least equal or surpass the brutal killings being done by ISIS? In another equally disturbing procedure – the baby is birthed most of the way with the head remaining in the birth canal – then a hole is cut into the babies skull and the brain is sucked out.

These same people will condemn (as well they should) the extreme brutality of the ISIS killings. Yet we have American lawmakers that support this horrid procedure that is no better than ISIS killings, legitimizing what is so barbaric I cannot understand how anyone can do that to another human being. Sign the petition to stop this…
