Take UP Your Cross

Psalm 94:12
12 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of thy law;
13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.

Why are we blessed when God chastens us? What do these verses mean?

We are blessed when God chastens us because he is treating us as a loving Father treats his children. He is wanting us to correct the bad behavior so we will have Godly character. God teaches us his laws so we can follow them.

This is the link to the group I do these Scripture writings with on Facebook if anyone else is interested in doing so also.

Scripture writing - 1 Timothy 5:3, 9-10

3 Honour widows that are widows indeed.

9 Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man.
10 Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.

Verse 3- Honour true widows.
Verse 9- A widow under 60 is not a helpless widow.
Verse 10- Talks about why you should help widows.

I am not a huge fan of this topic. I believe in helping widows when they need it, but we do not live in an ideal world. There are many a res of gray. The Bible does help define some of these areas where others, such as this one, I feel a bit uncomfortable with. Just because a widow isn’t 60 years old, shouldn't make her not a true widow. I think circumstances need to be examined in the situation. It is like saying in this passage that all unmarried women under 60 are busy bodies and gossips. This is not always true even if it may be common. I am not sure how to deal with Scriptures and churches who seem to make unfair rules just because it is worded and interpreted a certain way in the Bible.

Dear God,
If I am wrong in my attitude towards this, correct me. Help me to have the attitude towards widows and others that you desire me to have.
In Jesus’s name,

Do you think the eyes are a window to a person's soul? What does eye contact mean to you?

I do believe this, yes. I love looking a person in the eyes. For one, I like seeing their eye color. By looking someone in the eyes, you can read a lot of things non-verbally about them. You can see when some people are lying. You can see if there is happiness or sadness in their eyes. Sometimes you can even sense evil from someone’s eyes. You can sense other emotions too if you pay close enough attention to it.

Hi everybody

I am sending the prompt slightly earlier than usual. I wanted to send it before I got sidetracked and forgot. Your captain is a lot like the absentminded professor. I'm usually pretty smart but can go to the bathroom and forget why I'm there! lol

Today cruising through the WDC galaxy we got a distress call from RandyJohnson71 (6) who writes about his wife learning to play violin. I tried to learn to play guitar, but I live at the WV Veterans Home. The guys said it sounded like I was "skinning cats" and the poor cats were alive! (Yes. I'm terrible.)

and tell us what you do when somebody tries to play an instrument but could not carry a tune in a ten gallon tub!

I pray that this endeavor doesn't last very long or they get better at it in a hurry.

If you had an extra room in your home, what would you use it for?

Probably storage or a spare bedroom/ work out room. Maybe all 3. I make crafts, but I don't want to be confined to one area. I like to go to different rooms to work on different crafts. Otherwise, I might make it a craft room instead.
