The “Would You Rather” Tag 4.19.19

Would I Rather???
❤ I’d rather have Jesus than anything this world affords today!
Now, Lord, You know I couldn’t see that kind of question and not think of Your great hymn I’d Rather Have Jesus. ❤
And You know how much I love Your dear Son! ❤
Yet here You have allowed Lovely Anita of Discovering Your Happiness to create another new tag… The “Would You Rather” Tag…  to quote her, “as a BOREDOM BUSTER!”

The ‘Would You Rather’ Tag gives you two options to choose from – it’s funny to see what people will choose.

** Either/Or questions always leave 4 options…. Either, Or, Neither, Both 😉 LOL **


Rules:

  • Thank & tag the person that has tagged you
  • Attach the tag photo
  • Answers the ‘Would You Rather’ questions
  • Tag a handful of friends

My Answers:

  • Would you rather have all dogs try to attack you when they see you or all birds try to attack you when they see you?
    • neither one thank you
  • Would you rather be unable to move your body every time it rains or not be able to stop moving while the sun is out?
    • unfortunately I know both the feeling of not being able to move my body and the feeling of being restless, but at least being restless with the sun out I would mean I could be active with a lifetime of living to do 🙂 making for a sweet peaceful rest.
      “The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep.”
      – Ecclesiastes 5:12 KJV
  • Would you rather spend the rest of your life with a sailboat as your home or an RV as your home?
    • RV for me! Keep me on solid ground please! 🙂
      “And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.”
      – Matthew 7:26-27 KJV
  •  Would you rather walk around work or school for the whole day without realizing there is a giant brown stain on the back of your pants or realize the deadline for that important paper / project was yesterday and you are nowhere near done?

      And covers me there with His hand.”

  • Would you rather never run out of battery power for whatever phone and tablet you own or always have free Wi-Fi wherever you go?
    • I was going to say never run out of power because you can’s use WI-FI on a dead computer, but then I remembered I am typing on a laptop that requires my power cord to stay plugged up to use the WIFI that’s letting me type! LOL

    • Face the real ones, forget the irrational ones.

    • I’ve watched too many people go to jail for someone who never changed, nor gave one ounce of care about the one who took the fall for them.
      I’ve also seen people continue to get away with hurting others because none of their victims not being able to say anything or those aware of their guilt not  speaking up.

      – Unclouded Day, classic hymn

    • All my possessions
  • Would you rather never have to work again or never have to sleep again (you won’t feel tired or suffer negative health effects)?
    • It is so tempting to say No Sleep! Boy, I could just live life to the fullest. But I am reminded of the Breathe Bible Study the Lord allowed me to do.
      Breathe: Making Room for the Sabbath by Priscilla Shirer reminds that God created the sabbath for a purpose… not just for our health, but to allow to enter into that beautiful thing called… REST. Oh how wonderful the feeling of kicking up one’s feet and remember to Be still and know that He is God! ❤ Such sweet fellowship! ❤ He promises His people rest for a reason!
  • Would you rather get one free round trip international plane ticket every year or be able to fly domestic anytime for free?

  • Would you rather have unlimited sushi for life or unlimited tacos for life? (both are amazingly delicious and can be any type of sushi / taco you want)

    • both are so valuable
  • Would you rather give up bathing for a month or give up the internet for a month?
    • Give up internet
  • Would you rather donate your body to science or donate your organs to people who need them?
    • to science… it’s too diseased to help anyone, but maybe the research could save and or prevent others
  • Would you rather be able to teleport anywhere or be able to read minds?
    • my lack of trust in others says read minds, but to be able to transport away from danger is much more helpful
  • Would you rather never use social media sites / apps again or never watch another movie or TV show?
    • no social media or apps. TV is too vital for local news and weather, and the Internet is too unreliable… the connection, the speed, and the information

    • early! Being late throws things off.
  • Would you rather your shirts be always two sizes too big or one size too small?
    • 2 Big! 😉 Baggy!
  • Would you rather live in the wilderness far from civilization or live on the streets of a city as a homeless person?
    • In the wilderness. John the Baptist, Moses, and Jesus thrived in the wilderness.

WHEW! I’m finally done! God bless you 10 times over if you have actually read this far along with me! Lord, help me to choose the ones who love and live for doing these. I want to be a blessing, not a burden!

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 3

Lord, Your challenge for me has come to its 3rd and final day… at least for this challenge. I pray every quote, every word, every nomination, and every read brought glory to Your Holy Name… and will continue to do so. It’s Your blog. Do whatever You will with whatever You want. And do whatever You want with whatever You will!
It’s all for You!

And please bless our dearest and lovely Anita of Discovering Your Happiness for nominating me for this 3 Day Quote Challenge. Thank you, Miss Lovely! ❤


The Rules Are:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  3. Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
  4. Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 1: “God Loves You!”
(click here to read Day 1)

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 2:
“Jesus died for you! What more do you want Him to do? – Die Again?”
(click here to read day 2)

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 3:
(you are reading Day 3)

“He’s like the lightning in the sky each time I feel it near.
The beauty of its pretty color sinks beneath my fear.”

The Lord gave me this quote as a Life Quote for the poetry He has given me through a poem He allowed me to pen several years ago called Frozen Box, just as He has given me John 14:27 as a Life Verse from the Bible. It is posted as the tagline for my poetry blog gaillovesgodspoetry. It really sums up a lot about Me and God (my salvation testimony), as well as the long time struggle with My Fear of God. At the time I wrote it, I was young and just coming out of years of abuse, a lot of dysfunctional years for our family, a dysfunctional school, and was a single mom of the cutest little pair of arms that the Lord blessed me with. So of course my writing was still growing as mentioned in Me and Writing (my writing testimony).
The Lord has allowed me to grow so much, and my fear of Him as well. Recently, He has allowed me the grace to stand and face Him, to enjoy the magnificence of His majestic presence in the midst of a storm cloud, and different scenarios that would normally have me horrified. I am not standing as though to dare Him, nor defy Him, but by His sweet leading to look upon Him in awe! To know the peace and joy of knowing He is with me… for me… and strenghtening me… to trust Him more. It is because of John 14:27 that I can now stand and glory in His beauty in reverent fear.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!
– Amazing Grace,
Stanza 2
hymn lyrics by John Newton


Nominees for Day 3:
Something to Stu Over
Matthew Winters (Comeback Pastor)
Inner Man Theatre

(You are reading Day 2)

“Jesus died for you!
What more do you want Him to do?
– Die Again?”

So often others are told of Your love for them to give Your ONLY begotten Son for us… to allow Him to suffer persecution, pain, agony, fear, betrayal, and to bear the weight of every burden of every sin in the world on His shoulders… all to save us from eternal death! And STILL! It’s not enough! That famous word that seems to be everyone’s favorite excuse…. BUT!
But…. He doesn’t understand.
But… He’s never suffered like I have.
But… He’s never been sick.
But… He’s God’s Son.
But… He’s perfect, I’m not.
But… He doesn’t have family and friends to worry about.
But… He knows He’s going to heaven.
But… He’s never been afraid.
But… He’s never lost anyone to death.
But… He’s never had to face the public.
But… He’s never had parents.
But… He’s never had siblings.
But… He never had to go to school.
But… He’s never had to go to church (under someone else’s authority.)
But… He’s never had to worry about the law.
But… He’s never had to obey.
But… He’s got angels looking out for Him.

These may sound so made up or completely ridiculous, but I have heard them all and more. When people don’t know who Jesus is, or don’t know Him personally, or go on only what they have heard or learned, they will believe anything, or NOT believe anything. I use to believe some of these myself. But until we read Your Holy Word for ourselves, we just do not know who You are Lord, or what Your Son suffered.

We just don’t know of the agony and fear that gripped Him so tightly 3 different times in the garden. We don’t realize that while He was God in the flesh… that He WAS… IN THE FLESH… meaning He willing took on the pain and agony that the human body experiences… the weak and tempted mind that Satan tried to manipulate in the desert… the lonely and homesick spirit that longed for home and the heavenly Host that worshiped everything Holy about His Father… the obedient child who submitted to His earthly parents to set a Godly example… the Jewish boy, youth, and man who was subjected to the same Pharisees and Sadducees that He knew would be His accusers… the friend who watched His dear friends grieve over the loss of His dear friend Lazarus whom yes He did resurrect… but He was also the cousin who lost His own dear Cousin John the Baptist to a senseless murder… a decapitation… by a corrupt government… and whom was NOT resurrected.

The sad truth is that if we do not want to believe, we won’t. If we don’t care, we won’t. And if someone else giving their life for us is not enough, it simply isn’t. That is our human flesh. But there are just as many that don’t know until they read or have been told. And to think that sending Jesus to die again would make the better impact is impractical because as You told the rich man who was in hell begging You to let Lazarus go back and warn his family… if they will not believe the MESSAGE, then it will not matter WHO delivers it. The Holy Spirit has to help someone believe. It is our responsibility to make sure we at least pass on what we do know… to let them know that You do love them… and that Jesus did give His life for them… that You are waiting so lovingly for them to welcome You into their life… and pray for them. ❤

❤ May You find us faithful! ❤

Thank you, Lovely A for nominating me for the 3 Day Quote Challenge.

“GOD LOVES YOU!”

The most important thing to tell anyone I ever meet, and if by chance someone comes across this blog and reads those words… it may be the first or only time they ever hear it. We all need to hear it… the first time… each day… each hour… each second… each struggle… each joy… in our darkest depression… during our out of control anxiety… when fear grips at our soul. We need to know God loves us! And we need to be reminded… because our enemy sure waits to bombard us with the sins that so easily beset us… and to weigh us down with the stresses of life… and suck the life out of us with the unfortunate and cruel reality of death. If I have only one moment to say one word to any one I meet…. it is to assure them of Your tender, faithful, longsuffering, unconditional, never ending love! ❤ The love that has saved us from eternal death!
