PROJ365 & FACILITATING FAITH, wk 7

Week 42.

HUBS has been sick with a very bad sore throat/head cold...


and he did something today I've NEVER seen him do.


He drank hot tea.  (my husband doesn't like anything hot to drink, period.)  This was a miracle.
















We BOTH had hot-n-sour soup



FACILITATING FAITH, Wk 7
Isaiah 2:4 “…for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.”

While leading a Bible Study it is important to ‘apply His Word to daily living’, yet being in this world is tough. 

Hatred, doubting and disbelief run rampant these days, don’t they?! 

We’re so close to all of the doubting and disbelief by simply typing a few words into our computers,  reading newspaper articles, seeing inappropriate television images, hearing speeches of SELF aggrandizement as opposed to believing in God.
 
Political correctness seems to have ‘overtaken’.  Could it just be another way the ‘fallen one’ disguises Himself to appear palatable?  Many television stations have been adding disclaimers to religious shows, political candidates and even televised religious services.








These things are quickly accessible; but remember, His Word promises wisdom... it will heal our countries and our world.   When we watch his Hands working justly, read His Holy Word to understand Truth, and (in obedience) humbly believe on His Spirit to guide us while sharing His living within us to those we know (or will be meeting).

Think on your actions...
Are you daily giving a ‘disclaimer’ to the world
and being taken in by the disguises?

He died for us. 

Let's be giving personal input to the world of what He has and is doing
in our lives by growing our personal faith, sharing good news, pursuing Godly knowledge, self control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness and love.

2 Peter 1:8…11 “If you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ…be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure.”

My husband drinks nothing hot either.

Same here, except soup and an occasional capuccino or hot chocolate.
The first is one of my favorite promises in the Bible! Maybe because we lived on the ocean for five years.

his throat must have really hurt for him to drink the hot tea!

Missed you at church yesterday!

Loved the self aggrandizement line! Great word as well as relevant for today!

Poor guy! I hope he feels better soon!

Tea is so soothing when you're sick, but my husband won't drink it either.

Poor guy! Did he make faces while drinking it? :) I had to learn to like hot tea, having been raised on southern sweet iced tea. Hope he's feeling better by now!

Sometimes there's just nothing quite so medicinal as tea. It's grown on me over the years, especially the herbal varieties.

I'm sooooo done with snark. I've taking to leaving the room when hubby watches TV. I don't mind some civil, free-spirited debate, but what's going on now is anything BUT civil.

What a good day to live out a testimony of the sort of peace & calm the Lord grants.

Blessings,
