Prompt:
Proverbs 10:22
The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

How do we know a blessing is from the Lord?

Answer:
A blessing from God is a true blessing. It doesn't make extra burdens. It makes you better, not bitter.

Scripture writing - Colossians 3:12-13;23-24


Scripture:
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

Observations:
Verse 12- Be merciful, kind, humble, meek, and long-suffering.
Verse 13- Forgive one another. Don't make rash judgements.
Verse 23- Do everything you do passionately for God, not for men.
Verse 24- you will be rewarded by Christ because you serve him. Christ writes your spiritual paychecks.

Application:
As much as lies within you, be at peace with all men.

Prayer:
Dear God,
Help me to always seek peace and pursue it.
In Jesus’s name,
Amen

Have you ever experienced something that just could not be logically explained?

Oh yeah! More than once. I have seen demons, ghosts, and angels. I have dreamed prophetic warning dreams. I have had premonitions. Some “Christians” would not believe some of the stories I could tell.

I had my exploratory surgery today and am fine. The colonoscopy was negative.

Take UP Your Cross


Prompt:
Proverbs 10:6-7
6 Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
7 The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.

What do these verses say about the differences between the just and the wicked? Which category do you and the people you know fall in?

Answer:
I know people from both categories. When the wicked die, people are not sad to see them go, sometimes their own families. I have known very just people who’s funeral’s we're larger than the building could accommodate because of all the good the person had done. Violence is not of God. God is a God of peace.

Scripture writing - Acts 28:6-10


Scripture:
6 Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.
7 In the same quarters were possessions of the chief man of the island, whose name was Publius; who received us, and lodged us three days courteously.
8 And it came to pass, that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and of a bloody flux: to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him.
9 So when this was done, others also, which had diseases in the island, came, and were healed:
10 Who also honoured us with many honours; and when we departed, they laded us with such things as were necessary.

Observations:
Verse 6- since no harm came to Paul after the snake bit him, the people off the island thought he was a god.
Verse 7- A chief man of the island lodged them there 3 days out of courtesy.
Verse 8- The man’s father became ill. So Paul prayed for him soit was healed.
Verse 9- when other people heard of this, others came to be healed.
Verse 10- They were able to leave the island with everything that was necessary to finish their journey.

Application:
One good deed deserves another.

Prayer:
Dear God,
Thank you for providing everything we need. Thank you for your healing power. You are an awesome God.
In christ's name,
Amen

Take UP Your Cross


Prompt:
Deuteronomy 281-14
1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.
3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.
4 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
5 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.
6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
7 The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
8 The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
9 The Lord shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways.
10 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee.
11 And the Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
12 The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
13 And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:
14 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

This is the promise of blessing to those who are the people of God. We are not only blessed but overtaken by blessings. If our life is lacking in blessing, what can we do to obtain these blessings from the Lord? How are we blessed?

Answer:
These verses explain the blessings very well. I need to make sure that I am Seeking Jesus and the kingdom of God first. Then all these things shall be added unto me.

Scripture writing - Acts 28:1-5


Scripture:
28 And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita.
2 And the barbarous people shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and because of the cold.
3 And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.
4 And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.
5 And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.

Observations:
The ship that Paul was on had wrecked. They ended up on an island where there were Barbaric people, people who were considered primitive or uncivilized. Normally, barbarous people were considered to be cruel and dangerous. These people ended up being extremely nice to them. The lit a fire for warmth considering the rainy weather. A poisonous snake bit Paul on the hand, and they expected him to get sick and/or die. They thought surely vengeance had taken him out from some horrible crime like murder that he may have committed. He just shook the snake off into the fire and continued his merry way. No harm ever came to him as a result of the snake bite.

Application:
Even barbaric people can show a lot of kindness when they choose to. When we are laboring for the Lord, God protects us.

Prayer:
Dear God,
Thank you for your protection. Keep me safe from harm as I work to serve you. Give me favor and peace with other people.
In Jesus’s name,
Amen

Take UP Your Cross


Prompt:
Psalm 128:1-6
Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways.
2 For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
3 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
4 Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.
5 The Lord shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
6 Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.

What does it mean to fear the Lord? Should we be afraid of anything else?

Answer:
The Lord should be our only fear. Everything else is nothing compared to the power of Almighty God.

Observations:
Basically, these verses are saying that the group of people with Paul was received gladly. Paul then gave them a report of his mission work.

Application:

Prompt:
Psalm 112:1-8
Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
6 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.
8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.

How can we apply these verses to our own life?

Answer:
When we trust in the Lord, we have nothing to fear. God is our refuge and strength. To live is Christ and to die is gain. It is win-win.

Scripture writing - Acts 16:29-34


Scripture:
29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,
30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.
34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.

Observations:
The prison guard washed Paul and silus’s wounds and fed them.

Application:
Hospitality is simply attending to the needs of a guest whoever they might be.

Prayer:
Dear God,
Help me to always show compassion and hospitality to my guests.
In Jesus's name,
Amen

Write about who's a square for your Blog entry today.

I don't really go around thinking of people as square. I imagine you would think of a pastor that way. I guess it depends on what you think is square. 🤔

Day 3062: April 6, 2021

Prompt: “Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”
― Brian Jacques, Taggerung

Write about flowers and comfort.

Flowers are nice to look at. I can't say for me personally that flowers and comfort go together though. 🤷‍♀️

Take UP Your Cross


Prompt:
Psalm 106:3
Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.

What does it mean to keep judgement? How can we be righteous all the time?

Answer:
We are righteous always through the blood of Jesus Christ and following God's will for our lives. We keep judgement by making good decisions and keeping God's commands.

Scripture writing - Acts 16:13-15


Scripture:
13 And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither.
14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.
15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.

Observations:
Lydia sold purple for a living. The Lord opened her heart to hear Paul's message. She and her household were baptized which indicates Salvation. She was hospitable in offering Paul and his company a place to stay. Apparently they were having a prayer meeting with the women.

Application:
It is the Lord that opens someone’s heart to receive the message of Salvation.

Prayer:
Dear God,
Help us to be a witness to others. Open their hearts to receive the message you have given us. Help us to do it with the right attitude and not think more of ourselves than we should think.
In the holy name of Jesus,
Amen

Sunday’s Scripture writing - 2 kings 6:21-23


Scripture:
21 And the king of Israel said unto Elisha, when he saw them, My father, shall I smite them? shall I smite them?
22 And he answered, Thou shalt not smite them: wouldest thou smite those whom thou hast taken captive with thy sword and with thy bow? set bread and water before them, that they may eat and drink, and go to their master.
23 And he prepared great provision for them: and when they had eaten and drunk, he sent them away, and they went to their master. So the bands of Syria came no more into the land of Israel.

Observations:
The King of Israel showed hospitality to his captives.

Application:
As a result of hospitality shown, relations were improved with the other nation.

Prayer:
Dear God,
Help us to always show hospitality and peace to others. Help us to build healthy and safe relationships.
In Jesus’s name,
Amen

Prompt: What is art to you? Do you think there might be a universal set of rules underlying all aesthetics?

Art is creativity. It is making something yourself. I didn't know there were creativity rules.

Day 2061: April 5, 2021

Prompt theme: Renewal - “We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come.” —Joseph Campbell

How does this quote relate to renewal.

It is hard to obtain the new when you are still hanging onto the old. It is like Salvation in Christianity. We must put off the sinful ways of the flesh and begin to live in the new ways of the Holy Spirit, living a righteous life in Christ.
