In your opinion, what is the best Christian movie you have seen and why?

I Am Not Ashamed is the best so far that I have seen. Here is the review of it that I wrote in my Rising Star program, "Review of I Am Not Ashamed.

How has God provided for you lately?

He has provided food, shelter, clothing. He is my constant and steady companion. He is my help when I need him. He is my anchor. He is my everything. What has he not provided? He provides my everything!

Do something for someone to show them you value them like Jesus values them, and then write about the experience. What did you do? How did it make you feel? How did the other person respond? Etc...

I try to do this with everyone every day. Today, I helped an elderly neighbor when they had fallen out of bed. Yesterday, I carried in her groceries. I try to put other's needs before my own within reason. Most of the time it is well received. Rarely, I get a negative reaction sometimes. It always makes me feel good to love others.

Write about someone you can share your faith with during the month of June. How will you approach them? Write out a plan. What are your concerns and what can you do about them? etc...

This is a good question even for me. There are a lot of people I know that don't know the Lord like I do. I am doing 2 network marketing businesses, and I can't help but notice the similarities in Christian soul winning. I think one of these days I need to write about how Christianity and network marketing are similar. It's really rather interesting when you think about it.

I would like to use my new network marketing skills to witness to others. There is a lot of negativity associated with it, but it isn't all bad. I am learning so much. Even if I don't make a lot of money at it, I value the things and skills I am learning from it. That in itself is worth the investment to get started in the business of network marketing.

Since next Monday is Memorial Day, Do you believe you can still speak to the dead once they are gone? What is your view of Saints and Sainthood?

I realize that many people believe in saints and saint hood. I personally don't believe we should pray to our dead. I won't say that you can't speak to them. Are they aware of it? I don't know. However, I do believe we should only pray to God (including God the Father, The Holy Spirit, and Jesus). I feel that when we pray or ask favors of anyone or anything else, we are putting them in the position and authority of God. If God is the ultimate authority, why bother asking anyone else?

Let's write about Jesus and the difference he has made in our lives.

Jesus Christ has redeemed me from my sins. He is preparing a place in Heaven for my soul when my body dies. He has repaired my relationship with God the Father and has given me the ability to also become a child of God. He has made a huge difference in my life now. I am daring to dream again. I have a new hope. I can face tomorrow just because he lives.

Write about the story of King Solomon.

King Solomon was made king after his father David. I find it interesting that he is also the son of Bathsheba, Urriah's wife before David had him killed. He was the wisest man on earth at that time. Because of his being king and his wisdom, he also had many riches. God gave him riches and wisdom because he originally asked God for wisdom to lead God's people.

Proverbs 4:20-23
20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

What do these verses say to you?

The writer is expressing the importance of the words he is saying. He wants the reader to take them to heart and to not forget them. The writer's words will extend the reader's life and will add health to it. Keep guard over your heart because everything in life flows from it.

How does waiting on God increase your faith and dependence upon him?

It makes us aware of how much we need God. We realize we are not in control and that his timing is perfect and he has our best interest at heart.

What do you believe about revenge?

Revenge belongs to the Lord.

How can a Christian remain vigilant in Spiritual Warfare?

A Christian remains vigilant by reading the Bible and spending time with God in prayer.

Proverbs 4:14-19
14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.
15 Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.
16 For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.
17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.
18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

Write about what this scripture passage means to you.

I believe this is saying don't get involved with evil people when they are up to no good. Walk away if you find yourself in a situation where they are trying to get you to join them in their mischief. They live, eat, drink, and breath to do wickedness. Wickedness is darkness and therefore blinding. Goodness is as light. It makes it easier to see straight. Goodness will become brighter and brighter the more it is practiced.

What attitude should we have when we pray and worship God?

We need to be humble, emptied of self, and reverent and respectful toward God. We need to remember who we are and who he is.

What promise or promises of God are you leaning into during this time in your life?

All things work together for good and I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I also remind myself that Christ came not only to give us life but a more abundant life also. I remember God has a perfect plan for my life.

Proverbs 2:16-19
16 To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;
17 Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.
18 For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.
19 None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.

Explain and write about the strange woman these verses are talking about. How can these verses be applied to our life?

20 That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.
21 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.
22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

April 1st
Since April 1st is April Fool's Day, What does the Bible say about fools?

The Bible has so much to say about fools. I could probably write a Bible study on it. Maybe I should. Without taking a lot of time looking up verse by verse right now, there are a few things that come right to the top of my head. A fool says in his heart there is no God. A fool is full of folly and lacks wisdom. A fool mocks those who seek wisdom. They are quick to fall for and into mischief. The foolish man does not build on good foundations.

April 2nd
Proverbs 2:9-11
9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.
10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:

Write about these verses and what it means to have an understanding heart.

I think these verses mean that when we find pleasure in learning and it is more to us than just filling our head with facts, we will gain understanding and common sense to go with that knowledge. We will understand and value every good path. Because we know how to put our knowledge to good use and apply what we learn to real-life situations, we will be able to make good choices and decisions and be able to avoid trouble.

April 4th
Proverbs 2:12-15
12 To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;
13 Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;
14 Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;
15 Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

When we get wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, These verses describe the type of person we will be delivered from. What are your thoughts about this?

When we have good understanding, we will know not to get ourselves into trouble with this type of person. We can avoid it. It will also help keep us from being tricked or fooled by such a person.

March 25
Proverbs 1:20-22
20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:
21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,
22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

I find it interesting that the writer describes Wisdom as a person. Why do you think that is? What does this mean to you?

Just from reading it without doing a lot of research, I would personally interpret it as speaking about the spirit of Wisdom. Since wisdom can be a spirit, it would explain referring to it in person form.

March 26
Proverbs 1:23-27
23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

Who or what are these verses talking about?

If we turn our backs on God, he turns his back on us. We will suffer as a result.

Proverbs 1:28-31
28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:
30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way and be filled with their own devices.

What do you think these verses are talking about?

When God turns his back on people, he will ignore their cries for help and will allow them to suffer the natural consequences of their own actions.
