Dear Ones, it has been a while. Time sure flies and there never seems to be enough time in a day to do all the things you desire to do. Looks like I might have a bit more time on my hands this summer. So here I am.. Sharing the message of God with you... We are in 1 John chapter 3- John was encouraging his believing brothers and sisters in this verse that we are to manifest love for each other as brothers and sisters, most of all as children of God. I hate to use the example of earthly brothers and sisters because there are many blood related brothers and sisters who hate each other and do not show love to each other at all. So lets just say as children of God, we are to love each other. Too often in churches what we see is people who declare their love for you, but when you need them, they are NO WHERE to be found. Truly loving someone is not loving them just in words, but when it matters most. Through my life this has been a great experience.. People "say we really love you" but their actions speak otherwise. Isn't it sad.. That we use this word "love" so flippantly. Loving someone isn't a feeling you feel, love is an action. IT is something you do. To truly love someone is to show you care when it isn't convenient! Let us love each other as the Word encourages us to. Thank you for journeying with me. -Angie #dailyscriptureandthoughts

Dear Ones, Yesterday in my reading these scriptures stood out to me. I started thinking about Joseph's willingness to take on this great responsibility. His obedience, without complete understanding. Imagine the confusion he felt when he found out the woman he was betrothed to was pregnant. Betrayal, hurt, maybe even anger had to consume him, but even in that he desired no harm to come to her. (Let's remember the cultural background- she would have been killed for betraying her covenant with her future husband) He was going to quietly "divorce her" and just leave it and that, but an angel of the Lord came to him and told him what Mary probably was trying to explain all along. He told him to marry her, and to name the baby Jesus (because it was the husband that named the baby) I wonder in all this how Mary felt. She was betrothed to this man, so she didn't actually pick him, her father did. So she probably didn't love him. I wonder after watching his willingness, his obedience to God, his consideration, and thoughtfulness because he waited till she wasn't pregnant to be intimate with her that her heart grew and her love for him was sparked. What amazing thing to see the willingness and obedience of Jesus earthly parents. Just some thoughts and things to make you think more of how truly wonderful God's plan is. Thank you for journeying with me. - Angie #dailyscriptureandthoughts
