“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! ❤

Liebster Award 2.6.18

God, How exciting You keep the family of God growing, while allowing me the exciting pleasure of being a part of that family! You have whispered my name into the ear of my South African sister Siphe of God’s Anointed Princesses, as she has nominated me for the Liebster Award. I love the powerful boldness and strong stand that You have gifted her with. She has great passion in her love for You, and a strong voice in speaking kingdom language to remind us that we are children of the King  of kings that You are!20180201_0605371Thank you, Siphe, for nominating me for the Liebster Award, and for always reminding me of who I belong to, and the power of that fact alone! ❤
I love how you decorate your blog with all of the different icons, graphics, and your creative uses of them. I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog. Me and God absolutely have faith in the pediatrician who is shy with a bit of dynamite. 😉 

 


So here are the rules and what the Liebster Award is about…

Liebster Award:  The Liebster Award is an award for new bloggers and those with few or small followers. It’s an way of giving new bloggers some recognition and encouragement for the hard work.

Rules…

1.Create a new blog post on your blog thanking the person that nominated you, link to their blog and put in a  graphic of the award.

2.Answer the questions provided and share some facts about yourself.

3. Nominate others and share your post with them so they can accept their award.


My answers to Siphe’s questions for me:

1. If not blogging, what would you be doing? writing poetry/short stories
2. What is your dream vaca place? Sydney, Australia
3. What are your goals for the next 5 years? Keep following God/keep God first
4. Describe yourself in 3 words. ❤ His! His! His!
5. Who is your favourite blogger and why? God! Speaking uniquely through many! ❤
6.  What language would you love to learn one day? what the Holy Spirit allows
7. What is your favourite bible verse and what does it mean to you? There are so many, as the Word itself is invaluably comforting, healing, instructive, and more. I currently sign most things with John 14:27. It speaks of itself… with truth.
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”


Random facts about myself:

  1. I love having so many family and friends around the world who are in love with Christ! What a fellowship! ❤
  2. I love ALL of my family and friends around the world (believers and unbelievers) just as God does. And I love the privilege of praying for each one! ❤
  3. The Lord has been giving me some powerful Christian movies lately, even when watching Netflix movies that I didn’t even know were faith based:
    The Christmas Candle (I thought it was just the world using Christmas to tell of a magical candle, which it was the main theme but was a combo of the Pastor’s lack of belief in miracles, and the people learning that God sometimes uses us to be the miracle/hope in others’ lives and sometimes in our own)
    The Case for Christ (I thought it was a man I knew of to be an atheist out to discredit Christianity, but it was actually his testimony of setting out to do that very thing, but found the truth in Christ himself).
    War Room (My family was excited to watch together and loved it, Lene ❤ )
    Miracles from Heaven (I picked it up today from the library because Lovely A and Siphe both highly suggested it! We’ll be watching it next! 🙂 )
  4. Two of my currently favorite songs (of many) are

The River by Jordan Feliz

 and All My Hope is in Jesus by Crowder
