*Good Monday morn sisters
Very interesting message yesterday at church on eternal salvation and the question of people abandoning or losing their salvation. What it really boils down to is the two camps: so you have someone who is CLEARLY no longer living for God so he is either:
-lost his salvation (or abandoned it )
-He was never saved to begin with.
The purpose of this is not to get into a debate nor even to say which side I would choose, but to say, what is really important is
LIving today, right beside Jesus..spending time with him, living with him, consulting him, staying so close that getting so far that we would worry is never possible. So today ladies, please share with me your number one daily tip on sanctification Tell me how you stay close to Him.
I stay close by starting every day with reading a portion of scripture. I run through the bible once a year. I always have verses circling in my head because of Sunday school, ladies meetings, and support group prep that forces me to delve a little deeper many times a verse pops in my head as clearly as if it popped onto my computer screen.
A verse that stuck in my mind at church yesterday:
New International Version (NIV)
15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.
I also need to be absolutely POSITIVE today and allow no negative thoughts to assail me...my hyper boy is back today. 4 weeks until he goes to school. Father, thank you for this day, thank you for your love that you have poured out in my heart (rom. 5:5) thank you that I don,t have to rely on my love for my hyper boy...thank you that your provisions are all powerful and more than sufficient.
Father, I ask your blessings on Steph, Annette, and Erika today and on any lady whose eyes cross this thread. Thank you Father for reunited your children in prayer
have a great one sisters!
Victory = series of right choices....
Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!
God bless you and yours!
