Women’s Meeting

 

Yesterday evening was my first women’s meeting at our church. Sister Cheri(Pastor’s wife) held it and taught. The fellowship hall was all decorated very feminine. (sorry for the first time in a long time I FORGOT my camera) She made us a meal, chicken,brocoli, corn, with Alfredo noodles. It was all very good.But the Word she shared was wonderful. It was titled-

A wolf in sheep’s clothing or a sheep in wolf’s clothing-it was on modest clothing.

Her information came from this sermon

The Language of Christian Clothing- By SM Davis

and of course Scripture…

I will to try to do what she shared some justice.

The Language of Christian Clothing

1. The main clothing of the Christian is not the clothing of the outside but the clothing of the inside

 

- the main thing is having Jesus living within us in which these things will manifest themselves outwardly through the fruit in our lives:

-righteousness ( Job 29:14)

- salvation ( Isaiah 61:10)

- strength and honor (Proverbs 31:25)

-Humility (I Peter 5:5)

 

Comparison of what kind of attitude and spirit we should have- and what can be

 

Christ in us without Christ
servant attitude self centered
teachable know it all
not a pharisee Pharisee
grateful ungrateful
want to be like Jesus  
concerned about their testimony before others not concerned

 

 

2. Your clothing  SPEAKS a distinctive language all its own.

Here she shared a story of a news article she read – where a Pastor’s wife was arrested. What happened was this woman was dressed in such a way that the police officer thought she was a prostitute.

 

3. Inward and outward clothing should speak the same language

If we are followers of Jesus Christ- and profess our belief in him- then should we be dressing like the world?

 

4. Outward clothing is important to God and should therefore be important to us.

5. God’s purpose for clothing are protection, symbolism and modesty.

6. A person clothed with righteousness and humility would want to communicate the language of modesty and not the language of nakedness.

7. A person clothed with humility would want to communicate the language of submission

and acceptance of themselves rather than the language fo rebellion and rejection of God’s design

Deut 22:5


The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God.

 

8. A person clothed with righteousness and humility would want to learn their language from the shepherd not the wolf.

9. A person clothed with righteousness and humility will be willing to accept their God given responsibility for their example in this area of life.

She spoke on the differences between a man and a woman- men are affected physically, emotionally by sight. Women are affected by touch,so what we wear does matter because of two reasons

1. we could be sending the wrong message –

2. we could be causing a brother to stumble by our dress.

 

All of this was wonderful information and affirmation on things the Lord had placed in my life and heart a long time ago!

I pray for those who take the time to read this- they will see Christ in the Words and He will be glorified.

His Secret Things…

Deu 29:29

The secret [things belong] unto the LORD our God:

-Not everything of God do we know

- Not everything of God do we understand

 

but those [things which are] revealed [belong] unto us and to our children for ever, that [we] may do all the words of this law.

There are things that we do know through His Word and understand of God. Those things are our responsibility. Those words/ways are to be taught to our children, children’s children, children’s children’s children FOREVER! so that they will do and keep God’s law and ways.

In our human mind we think we know God because He’s like us, right?

Wrong- we were made in HIS image, not His in our image and it is only in HIS image are we made, but without Christ and HIS redeeming blood we are NOTHING like God because without Christ we are DARK, Sinful, and Ugly.

No darkness is in Him( 1 John 1:5)

Only being redeemed are we washed clean, and Christ in us are we able to see the light beaming through the darkness in us to make out HIS image in us.  Only through Christ can we understand and follow HIS ways and Word.

Seek His face, His ways and His Word this day that you may know of this hope that is only brought to us by the Holy Spirit. Find your strength in Him and know that all His ways are revealed in His word. Allow it to guide you and strengthen you. In Jesus Name!

Purging is never easy…

 

This week has been one of a spiritual and emotional challenge. God has been purging my heart, and soul- that purging process is not an easy one and it hurts so deep within me not for my sake but for the shame I have placed on myself and my beloved. 

The Lord has been gracious, and merciful. He has shown His love to me through my beloved and his gentleness to me. Some days have been even tough to pray, not because I had NO reason to pray but because the pain was so great and I know the Lord could see right to my heart and soul. I had NO words- so in those days I lifted my face to heaven with one song on my heart for my Lord.

Complete

and one for my beloved!

I truly want to sit at your feet my beloved,drink from the cup in your hand,lay back against you and breath, feel your heart beat, This is love is so deep it is more than I can stand.

I want to be to you what God intended you to have in a wife! I know she is singing this song to the Lord, but it is such a love song- it truly shows how I feel about you-

 

Thank you, Lord, for your graciousness, your mercy, in my life- may I continue to seek your face, Read your Word, so that I may bring you glory and not shame IN my life!

Thankful Monday(I know it is Tuesday)

holy experience

46-50

 

46. For the Lord and Restoration in my soul…

 

47. For time alone with my beloved

 

48. For cool nights and bright, glorious mornings

 

49. For young men who follow fervently after Christ

 

50. For the Lord’s continuing His Work within me!

Anniversary but most of all restoration

This past Saturday Samuel and I celebrated our 17th anniversary. It started out being a very quiet day, but then it got busy with things of the church. We only had Maria, Joey and Noah- but they had a youth day at church so we took them.

We played kickball with the youth and parents-which was so much fun! It made me realize that there are muscles I have not used in a while.(ha-ha) We stayed at the church all day fellowshipping, talking and laughing with the families.

Time flew before we knew it was 7:30pm. Samuel and I looked at each other wondering if it was even worth trying to go out to eat at that time. We ended up going to this little Mexican restaurant in a small town that is next to our town. It was ok. I am not a big fan of Mexican. I wanted the fried avocado though.

On Sunday- we went to church and both morning and evening service were so powerful. The Holy Ghost was present! It was so strong that there were things He wanted me to share and shed from the past with Samuel. So that evening was a time of sharing, and confessing. It brought liberation to my soul but it pained me to see the pain in my beloved’s eyes,as I was obedient to the Lord. The devils plans in my life have been defeated. I can stand and say that through the power and blood of Jesus I am cleansed and restored a new! May the Lord lead and guide and give my beloved and I strength to stand on HIS foundation of Rock and not in the sand. As the winds of life blow- we will stand assured that we will not fall because our foundation is not our own but Christ’s!!!

I love you my wonderful, strong, Godly Man of God! You are truly the one God intended for me and for the first time- I know that so deep within me!!!  Thank you for 18 wonderful years, 17 of them as one! May our Lord reign within our hearts and souls, so that we can be molded and shaped into who HE wants us to be!

To God be the Glory

New friends…

 

Last night we had the priviledge to fellowship with some very special people last night. The Saldonna’s are a very unique and special family for some many reason, but one is the trials they face daily- seem so natural and easy for them.

See Mr. Gary is in a wheel chair which in NO WAY LIMITS HIM

His daughter Britney also is in a wheelchair and she has Cerebral palsy.

IMG_0609 

Angie- is so precious because she sees the gifts she has before her in her husband and her daughter. Limitations are not a problem for this dear woman. Her strength shines through as she tenderly cares for her daughter and assists her beloved where he needs her.

 

We have totally fallen in love with these precious people!

 

Here is my new friend Britney

IMG_0611 IMG_0607 IMG_0609 (2) 

 

I have such admiration for both of them. I pray as they seek God together that he strengthens them through his Word and bond them together!

A beautiful thought came to me when we were leaving last night- how beautiful will it be stand before the throne of the Lord and see Gary and His daughter dancing before the Lord completely whole and restored in BODY!! I can not wait and I hope I am standing right beside them!!

well things here in the Sellers home has been challenging. Every one of my family members caught the flu, except Noah and I. Needless to say, I was busy taking care of everyone, and bleaching everything to kill the germs. IMG_9000

 

The 2 weeks before we were busy with things at the church, and very late nights, which is most likely why everyone got sick, but we had fun NONE the less.

 

 

On the 20th of September-

We celebrated my daughter 14th birthday:
