Reading The Bible Is Important!!!

Reading the Bible is important to any Christians walk with God. We learn about our Savior, what He has done for us, and what we must do for Him. We learn through the Bible what things please God. We learn how to pray, what and who to pray for. We learn how to resist temptation and think pure thoughts. We learn how to share the Gospel. What would we be, what would the world be with out the Bible?

by Amos Wells

I supposed I knew the Bible,
reading piecemeal, hit or miss,
Now a bit of John or Matthew,
Now a snatch of Genesis;
Certain chapters of Isaiah
certain Psalms (the twenty-third),
Twelfth of Romans, First of Proverbs,
yet I thought I knew the word.
But I found a thorough reading
was a different thing to do,
And the way was unfamiliar
when I read the Bible through

You who like to play at Bible,
Dip and dabble here and there
Just before you kneel a-weary,
and yawn out a hurried prayer;
You who treat the (crown of writing)
as you treat no other book -
Just a paragraph disjointed,
Just a crude, impatient look -
Try a worthier procedure,
try a broad and steady view,
You will kneel in very rapture
When You Read The Bible Through.

Wanted: Soldiers Marching Heaven Bound

"I am a soldier in the army of God. The Lord Jesus Christ is my commanding officer. The Holy Bible is my Code of Conduct. Faith, prayer and the Word are my weapons of warfare. I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, trained by experience, tried by adversity and tested by fire.

I am a volunteer in this army and I am enlisted for eternity. I will either retire in this army at the rapture or die in this army; but I will not get out, sell out, be talked out, or pushed out. I am faithful, reliable, capable, and dependable. If my God needs me, I am there. If He needs me in the Sunday School, to teach the children, work with the youth, help adults or just sit and learn, He can use me because I am there.

I am a soldier, I am not a baby. I am in place, saluting my King, obeying His orders, praising His name, and building His Kingdom! I am committed. I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn me around. I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside. I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit.

When Jesus called me into this army, I had nothing. If I end up with nothing, I will still come out ahead. I will win. My God has and will continue to supply all of my needs. I am more than a conqueror. I will always triumph. I can do all things through Christ. The devil cannot defeat me. People cannot disillusion me. Weather cannot weary me. Sickness cannot stop me. Battles cannot beat me. Money cannot buy me. Governments cannot silence me and hell cannot handle me. I am a soldier. Even death cannot destroy me. For when my Commander calls me from this battlefield, He will promote me to Captain and then allow me to rule with Him. I am a soldier in the army, and I'm marching, claiming victory. I will not give up. I will not turn around. I am a soldier marching heaven bound!" ~ B. J. Morbitzer

Take the pledge. Enlist in God's army today!

Around The World... In Prayer

saw the sick, many left to die.

I wasn't there in person... but I was there in spirit. I was praying for those in Africa, those who have no hope. Intercession is a great tool that we have. We can go all over the world in prayer with out ever leaving our "praying room." 

"But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." (Matthew 6:6)

We are called to pray for our authorities. 

"all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness." (1 Timothy 2:2)

We are called to pray for peace in Jerusalem. 

"Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper." (Psalm 122:6) 

There are so many things that we could pray for, the list is pretty much endless. Even though God knows our hearts, He still wants us to share those thoughts with Him

"The breath of man is a lamp of Jehovah, Searching all the inner parts of the heart." (Proverbs 22:27)

Inspiring Prayer Quotes:

*Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?-- Corrie Ten Boom

*Faith in a prayer-hearing God will make a prayer-loving Christian. --Andrew Murray

*God's answers are wiser than our prayers. –Unknown

*Prayer does not fit us for the greater work, prayer is the greater work. --Oswald Chambers

Prayer and faith go hand in hand.

"Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done." (Matthew 21:21)

We must also pray for the nations. Check out this site Operation World for daily prayer petitions from different nations. If we all pray with faith, I'm sure God will do a mighty work in this world.

Book Review

Growing up I really didn't like reading. I saw it as a bore and a waste of time. It was even hard for me to stay awake while reading the Bible. Over the years God has put in me the desire to read. I sometimes find myself reading late into the night a good book I felt I just can't put down. I thought that I would share with you some of the books I like.

1.Left Behind: The Kids. These books are about 4 young children who somehow have heard about Jesus, but haven't given their lives to Him. The rapture occurs and the 4 of them are left to fend for themselves while their family and friends have been taken up into the clouds. Judd, Vicky, Lionel, and Ryan all meet and unite and receive Jesus. They are left in the tribulation, fighting for their faith and lives. I have books 1-8 and so far they are really good. Can't wait to get the rest of the series. There are 40 books!!!

2.Elsie Dinsmore Classics: Book 1: These books take place on the southern plantations of Roselands, The Oaks, Ion, Viamede and Woodburn. Elsie is a young girl whose mother died during child birth and father despises her. He feels as though the child had taken away his lovely wife. Elsie must learn to obey her ungodly Papa's every command as long as they do not interfere with her biblical notions. Elsie father learns to love her and Jesus after time. Through out this series you feel the love and laughter (and you'll probably cry). The Elsie Dinsmore classics have 28 books. I am up to number 3...
3. The Shiloh Legacy: In My Father's House. I have just started this series by Bodie Thoene. They are about 4 young main men fighting in WWI, risking their lives for freedom and peace. Birch, Max, Ellis, and Jefferson's stories are shared and through the struggle of the Great Depression, God works in the midst of it all. This book has different story lines, which is a highlight for me in books. They keep you suspenseful. I have finished book one, am up to book 2 and there are 3.

Aizess over at Home School Journal wrote this review on it:

In My Father's House (Shiloh Legacy series #1) by Bodie and Brock Thoene was an excellent read. Excitement was high throughout the book and I thoroughly enjoyed the descriptive language that was showered throughout it. I was drawn into the stories of Birch, Max, Ellis, and Jefferson.

This is the first book that I have read with different story lines happening at once. So, I disliked this format at first. Afterward, I got used to it and, actually, it enhanced the suspense in the book because the Thoenes would usually leave characters' stories at such critical points! Also, this book dealt with some serious immoral issues such as fornication; however, the Thoenes deal with these issues in the right way and in the end they contribute significantly to the series.

I love the way the Thoenes weave Christianity into the book in such a smooth way. The few sermons that are in the book were a blessing. Sometimes, they even made me want to shout AMEN! And the strong faith of the Canfield family was a breath of fresh air.

I enjoyed this book immensely and would highly recommend it.

I hope that you will look into these books and see if they are something you'd be interested in. All of these books are Christ centered and are good reads. Comment below if you have read them any of the books or if you have any suggestions. I'd love to hear them. Check back for more great books reviews

A New Jouney...

A new journey is what I am ready for. I've started my blog to share my life with others. I hope to encourage others in the way of Jesus, and hopefully be encouraged as well.

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. 
Hebrews 10:24-25 

Through out my blogging I will share with you pieces of my life. I am a young lady of many hats but still a child at heart. I'm planning to share recipes, my crafty creations and all things me... after all this is my korner
