Saturday- How can we shod our feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace and keep them that way?

We can have the plan of salvation marked in our Bible, or on an index card, or a sheet of paper, or a bookmark, or we can memorize it. We can work to control our emotions and remain even-tempered in tough situations. We pursue peace to the best of our ability.

Scripture writing - Luke 14:12-14


Scripture:
12 Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
14 And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

Observations:
When you make a feast, don't serve others for recompensation. God will reward you.

Application:
Don't do good deeds expecting things in return. God will reward you in due time.

Prayer:
Dear God,
Help me to always have right motives to go with my actions. Keep me on the straight path.
In Jesus's name,
Amen

I love to watch the clouds and sun.
I watch the birds fly all around,
And can have so much fun
Until the sun goes down.

Relaxing where walls surround.

I am not overly enthusiastic about Santa Claus, so I may not be the one to ask. I did notice a lot of repetition. It would probably be a good candidate to turn into a silly little song. It isn't bad writing, just not my cup of tea.

Discussion Questions

1. Why is it important to prepare Spiritually?

You never know when the Devil will plan to attack. You need to be ready spiritually like you would be prepared to react in case of fire or tornado.

2. How can we Spiritually prepare for hard times?

Pray and read our Bible Daily and listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit.

3.What choices during hard times can we make to bring more peace into our life?

We can choose to not react immediately and to give ourselves time to think first. We can try to avoid circumstances, people, movies, shows, etc...as much as possible that take away our peace.

4. What are some hard things you have faced?

My parents and other family members dying. Abuse. Arguments. Heath issues.

5. How have you gotten through hard times in the past? How has God helped you?

God always has come through for me and got me through those times. Sometimes it was the still quiet voice of the Spirit. Other times he sent people to me just when I needed them. He supplied things in advance I didn't know needed until I needed them. He would reveal a scripture, story, or poem at the right time. He would allow me to feel his presence.

6.What should our attitude be when facing seemingly hopeless situations?

Hope in God because all things work together for my good.

7. In what way is this piece of armor offensive/defensive?

It is a defense because it can keep us calm in ugly situations. It is an offense when we repay evil with good. Vengeance is the Lord's.

8. Where are you currently facing a battle at the moment?

My pastor is telling me I should not teach a Bible study because I am a woman and women aren't supposed to teach men. What do you think? I have already been instructed by the Holy Spirit to take a stand and to not stop doing the Bible studies. I will have a meeting with him Tuesday morning to discuss it. As crazy as it may seem, I could face disciplinary action from him and the church for this including being excommunicated from the church. I don't know how this is going to turn out. Pray for me if you will. It is ironic that I am writing studies on the armor of God and am going through this battle of my own.

9. Are you ready with the Gospel of peace?

I certainly am trying to be prepared.

10. What can you do to make yourself more ready with the Gospel of peace?

I could memorize more Scripture with the references so I can have them at a moment's notice.

Friday- Write about how you can share God's peace with other people.

I can share God's peace not only by telling others what Christ did for me but by being at peace with everyone as much as humanly possible. Romans 12 tells us as much as lies within us, we should be at peace with all men.

Scripture writing - Luke 10:38-42


Scripture:
38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.
40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Observations:
Verse 38- Martha received Jesus into her house.
Verse 39- Martha's sister Mary sat at the feet of Jesus to hear his Words.
Verse 40- Martha was busy and overwhelmed with serving her guests and wanted Jesus to make Mary help her.
Verse 41- Jesus answered Martha. He knew she was stressed out.
Verse 42- Jesus knew Mary needed to hear his words more than Martha needed her help. So he refused to make her help Martha and continued letting her hear his words.

Application:
God is more concerned with what is going on in the heart than with outward appearances. Jesus knows what is needed the most and he will guide us to it if we choose to listen to his words.

Prayer:
Dear God,
Help me to always choose to listen to your words. You are a good God, awesome and mighty in power. You are able to calm the storms in our life and give us peace and confidence in stressful situations. You know what is best for us. Thank you for never leaving us alone.
In Jesus's Holy name,
Amen

Discuss a product on the market that needs to be improved. How would you change it? Why?

It is hard for me to think of right off the top of my head. I try not to be a complainer. Life is too short. If I don't like something, I don't use it. It is that simple. Although recently, there has been a bit of controversy over a certain dog flee collar. It killed some pets and vets are still encouraging people to use it. Yes, it gets rid of the flees, but you better hope it doesn't get rid of the dog too. That one kind of bothers me.

Take UP Your Cross


Prompt:
What has God done for you? What do you do for Him?

Answer:
God is my everything. I could never repay him for all he has done for me. He saved me. He helps me. He guides me each and every day. He is my constant friend and provider.

I write for him and try to live for him. He gave his life for me so I gave my life to him.

Feasting on the Word of God


Tuesday- Write about what you can do to have more of God's peace in your life.

I wrote the Bible study. Lol "Armor of God - Preparation of The Gospel of Peace (Shoes) However, I think for me personally it is going to be to control my temper better and be slower to anger. I have a very bad sarcastic attitude that at times has gotten me into trouble.

Wednesday- What Scripture verses can you have ready to read in difficult circumstances? What promises of God will help you keep your faith and trust in Jesus?

I have many. We are more than Conquerors. All Things work for my good. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you. Look unto the hills from which cometh my help. And it came to pass/ this too shall pass. I called upon the Lord and he heard me. Commit thy way unto the Lord and he will bring it to pass. Proverbs 3:5-6. I quote these things to myself and other Scriptures all the time. I use them in my prayers.

Thursday- Write about how God has pulled you through a difficult time.

God is currently getting me through a difficult time with my health issues. However, I wrote this story for a contest and it is about getting through a difficult time.

Scripture writing - Job 31:29-34


Scripture:
29 If I rejoice at the destruction of him that hated me, or lifted up myself when evil found him:
30 Neither have I suffered my mouth to sin by wishing a curse to his soul.
31 If the men of my tabernacle said not, Oh that we had of his flesh! we cannot be satisfied.
32 The stranger did not lodge in the street: but I opened my doors to the traveller.
33 If I covered my transgressions as Adam, by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom:
34 Did I fear a great multitude, or did the contempt of families terrify me, that I kept silence, and went not out of the door?

Observations:
Verse 29- We should not rejoice in the tragedy of others.
Verse 30- We should not curse others.
Verse 31- We should share of our blessings with others.
Verse 32- We should be kind to strangers.
Verse 33- We be willing to confess our faults immediately.
Verse 34- We should be willing to help others when we can.

Application:
We should bless always and never curse anyone. We should always help others when we can and they are truly in need.

Prayer:
Dear Father in Heaven,
Thank you for all the good things you have given me. Help me to be willing always to share with others. Give me a heart for others in need, and let me always have compassion for others including my enemies.
In Christ's name,
Amen

Take UP Your Cross


Prompt:
Philippians 3:15
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

Do you have a plan ready to share the gospel if the opportunity presented itself? What would you do or say?

Answer:
My primary plan is to start by sharing my own personal testimony or experience. What I would do or say depends on the person I am dealing with. Having been in a customer service setting a lot of times previously while I was working, I can read people at least to a point. Sometimes you have to use different approaches with different people.

Scripture writing - James 2:18-24


Scripture:
18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

Observations:
Verse 18- Faith is shown by works
Verse 19- You do well to believe in God, but you should also fear him like the demons do.
Verse 20- Your faith is dead if your works don't back it up.
Verse 21- Abraham was justified by his works.
Verse 22- His works resulted from his faith, and showed his faith to be perfect.
Verse 23- Abraham had faith in God and was counted righteous because of it.
Verse 24- True belief and faith will always be displayed by works.

Application:
Bottom line: True belief and faith will always be displayed by works. Actions speak louder than Words.

Prayer:
Dear God,
Let my actions display my faith in you. I want to be counted righteous too. Help me to remain faithful.
In Jesus's name,
Amen

Shhh! Don't tell the universe. Lol If it finds out, it might work against me. 🤔 However, I plan to work on my housecleaning and craft-making and playing catch-up on my blogs. I hope I will have enough energy to get a lot accomplished. Shhh! 🤫

Prompt: Write a paragraph or two beginning with the words "The Secret of Love" or "Love is the Secret".

The secret of love is selflessness. It is being willing to put others needs before your own. It is the type of love Jesus gives and models so we can love others the same way.

Take UP Your Cross


Prompt:
Write your favorite Bible verse? Why is this your favorite verse?

Answer:
Psalm 37:23-24
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.

This tells me the Lord delights to lead me and direct my paths. It is his pleasure to help me. I will not be completely destroyed or cast down because the Lord will hold me up.

Scripture writing - James 2:14-17


Scripture:
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

Observations:
Verse 14- It is one thing to say you believe in something. It is an active belief when your actions show it.
Verse 15 & 16- If you know someone is in need, and all you give them is well wishes, how is that going to help them. You can show that you believe they truly are in need by giving them what ever it is that they need.
Verse 17- Belief in Jesus Christ without out actions to back it up profits no one.

Application:
It is one thing to believe something, but it is another to prove it. Actions speak louder than words.

Prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help me to show my faith through action. Help my love for you to be more than just words. May people see and know you through the life I live.
In Jesus's name,
Amen

Take UP Your Cross


Prompt:
Isaiah 53:2-5
2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Have you ever experienced a personal healing or seen someone else healed?

Answer:
I have witnessed a healing. When I was around 10, my mom burned herself on our new microwave. She put a loaf of bread in there to defrost it and forgot to take the twisty tie off. It caught fire, and she put it out with her hands rather than risking the house catching on fire. As a result, her hands blistered.

I went to vacation Bible School that day and requested prayer for her from everyone who would listen. She had wrapped her hands so she could take me and pick me up before heading to the doctor. When she picked me up, one of the ladies asked her if she could see her hands. Mom took the wrappings from her hands to show the lady. We all got a surprise when she unwrapped them. Her hands were as though they had never been burned. I don't know that I would have believed it had I not seen it with my own eyes. I had seen the burns and blisters that morning. By afternoon they were completely gone.

I wrote this in 2019 on Facebook.

Reflecting on 24 years ago today. My heart is saddened by the tragedy that took place that day. I can't help but remember it. It feels like a lifetime ago. Although I was fortunate to not lose someone I loved that day, I knew people who did. I heard so many stories in the following weeks and months about how lives were affected and changed. It was like a dark cloud hanging over my high school graduation which was only a month and day after that. I felt the ground shake and heard what sounded like thunder when the bomb went off downtown. I was at home and nearly fell out of the shower because the ground shook so hard. I had the privilege of helping a friend who worked for the city answer some of the letters that poured in from other people and high school aged students from around the country. Their were so many and they didn't want any of them to go unanswered. It is hard in some ways to explain how it affected me personally. No I am not a victim of it, but to witness the aftermath of something like that so close to home deffinately leaves it mark or impression. It is hard to believe that some of the children affected are grown and now pursuing their own careers now. It makes me feel kind of old....

Scripture writing - James 2:5-10


Scripture:
5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

Observations:
Verse 5- God chooses the poor of the world but rich in faith.
Verse 6- People despise the poor and prefer the rich who oppress them.
Verse 7- The Rich people despise God.
Verse 8- You do well if you love your neighbors as yourself.
Verse 9- If you have favoritism, you sin.
Verse 10- If you offend in one point of the law, you are guilty of breaking all of it.

Application:
If you commit one tiny sin, you are a transgressed of God's law. Even if you do good, you have broken it. We can not have favoritism with other people. We should treat everyone equally.

Prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help me to treat everyone equally without favoritism. Let me not despise or mistreat those who are less fortunate.
In Christ's name I ask it,
Amen

Prompt: “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
How successful are you in resisting the kind of world Emerson is talking about? Or if you wish, how successful can anyone be in resisting that world?

Oh I am definitely myself and proud of it. Many have tried to change me and failed. I can not pretend to be something I am not. I simply can not stand it. I think that is partly the preacher’s kid in me. It has earned me a reputation of sometimes being a rebel. In some ways I certainly can be. I try to be one in a good way now though. That wasn't always the case.
