Ticklish Laughter

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine, a merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance.

When see my kids laugh it makes me feel so happy. When I heard Stephen laugh outloud for the first time what elation filled my heart. The most beautiful noise in the world I believe is your child's laughter.

How much more does our Father enjoy seeing us laugh!

Tonight, after reading a bible story with my kids, I tickled all 3 at the same time. Then a thought struck me; why did God make us ticklish?

One Hypothesis, I read was that tickling serves as a bonding experience between parent and child.
All I know is that God wants us to have fun sometimes, and maybe he enjoys "tickling us", seeing us laugh by allowing funny things to occur in our lives to stimulate that reaction.

Thank you God for all you allow in my life, and for all the laughter you have sent across my path. Thank you for cheering the heavyhearted, using the useless, loving the undesirable....

In the world but not part of it.

Last night I did not sleep well. I had trouble falling asleep and when my breathing started to even out and my body began to enter the first stage of sleep, my youngest son's cries rang out. He had thrown up and my daughter's belly wasn't feeling much better than her brother's.
I did not have a good feeling you might say, from the moment my head hit the pillow. In the stillness of the night, I could still see the light from the downstairs hallway cast its incadensent shadows upstairs bringing me some sort of asylum in the darkest part of the night.
Overwhelming emotions swelled up inside me as I shrugged them off reasoning within myself that I was just overtired. My kids have been more sick then ever this past year maybe due to the fact of living in a high populated area.

The oppression here is much greater than the town I was living in before. The devil has been throwing obstacles, the world has been forceful in their lifestyles, and my flesh weaker.
I see a great need to spend more time with the Lord even when the Devil keeps my schedule busy. I see a great need to evangelize the lost even though it means being in the world and facing all their wickedness and try not to be part of it at the same time.

God's prescence is like that hallway light giving me light and shelter in these last days. To keep Him in my life so bright I must immerse myself in His word, in prayer and in fellowship with godly saints and listening to godly music.
A constant fight it is, but I (we) must not keep my eyes only on the Lord, but my ears, my feet, my hands, my HEART.

Esteeming one another in Love

Philipians 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

We should look upon our own faults and be severe towards them, but concerning others we should be patient and graceful, and not quick to point out other people's faults. We should not be busy-bodies, always observing and wanting to see one another's fault and telling others about the "problem" in someone else's life. Love covereth a multitude of sin. If we really love our brother and sister in Christ we would not allow anyone to talk bad of them. Ps 50:20, slandering a brother is evil in God's eyes. Slander is to talk bad or belittle another, ruin their name or lie about them.

The spirit of pride tries to make one feel above another brother, but really,we should think and treat our brothers and sisters in Christ higher and better than ourself.

For myself, I am convicted. I pray we all get convicted and begin to lift up and encourage one another, serving God with like-mindedness.

Iniquity cont'd

Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

This describes today’s age. Cold hearted, apathetic, half hearted having or showing little ardor, zeal, or enthusiasm. If that sounds familiar it’s because you have encountered some of today’s “Christians”. It is also the definition of “lukewarm”. The bible talks about this last age as people being lukewarm. Iniquity has reigned in the hearts of many, idols taking place of God, leaving hearts cold towards God and His word.

I pray that my heart never gets cold towards the conviction of God, that he helps rid any idols lurking in my heart, laziness in serving Him and restores unto me the Joy of His salvation.

Woe to us who set up idols in our hearts! We place stumblingblocks of our own iniquity in our face. If we regard iniquity in our heart the Lord will not hear us. How much will we have to account for in that day!!!

iniquity was not found His [Jesus] lips == Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh: If we have our iniquity purged then our lips would be clean too.
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell

We must yield our members servants to righteousness unto holiness. Crucify our flesh daily from its lusts.

By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.
Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity,

It is possible for us to change. Let us love righteousness, and hate iniquity; fear the Lord, depart from evil, put God first and above all in our hearts.

Heart Sick

Proverbs 13:12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.

My hope is in the coming of the Lord, and though it may be deferred for yet a little while longer, I will endeaver to the doing of God's will. And though my heart is sick now, I know my heart will recieve it's desire one day.

But when my heart's Desire cometh and will call me out by my name and recieve me up unto Himself, it will be worth it all, it will be the tree of life flowing through Him unto me.

I can't wait for that day.
But I must wait for that day.
I must not veer to the left or to the right.
I must not fall away.
Never let Him out of my sight,
But in His prescence stay.

The Great Commission

We must preach the gospel to all the earth. I believe there are souls that have been saved but have not worked for the Lord or fell away. How much more power and lost people regenerated if those fallen away would be renewed to repentance?

My mom's last words were about her lost sheep. About the child who had went astray, out of the fold. Saved are all her children, but one was not in God's will. Her burden fell on my shoulder's, and I wanted so bad to help that lost sheep.

I pray that God will answer my prayers and renew this lost sheep's heart. I am trying to do all I can, all God will allow me to do. But I know in the end only God can change her heart, only she can desire with her whole heart to seek after God.

I am but a lowly, humble servant. Borne in sinful flesh, condemmed to an everlasting justly deserving fire. Thank God I am also a redeemed, heaven bound, unworthy but made child of God by His mercy and power-to-save-the-vilest-sinner precious blood.

I believe with God nothing shall be impossible, even fulfilling the Great Commision.
Lord help me be faultless help me serve you, help me bring others out of the fire but also help me help others to walk in the Light until we need no more try.
