Yesterday we were a part of dedicating our first grandchild - what a joy it is to us to see a Godly seed begin life, to watch this little man grow and develop the calling of God in his life. Lord help us to model you, to guide him to your Word, and glorify you in all we do! We praise Jesus for you! #babysuthers #samsellersfamily2016 #instablog June 27, 2016 at 09:27AM

This song resonates my heart this season

The words of this song spoke so deeply to me this morning, https://youtu.be/GYU5aGQV6j0 Take Me to the King Truth is I'm tired
Options are few
I'm trying to pray
But where are you?
I'm all churched out
Hurt and abused
I can't fake
What's left to do? In this season after serving a church for two years,we are looking around wondering what to do next? Going to another church that does not line up with our convictions? um NO we did that way too many times and we even served in one believing God had us there to help open up the Word to them. To help guide them to true discipleship. ( boy does that sound prideful)  We want to serve God's people using the gifts of shepherding discipleship and teaching. Oh many churches would say come here or here because we "need" you. But do they really??  I have no desire to be a part of a church that people are checking their spiritual box every Sunday.Monday thru Saturday have no contact with each other. I have no desire to be a part of a church, as the new person I  have to work and work to feel welcome and a part. Since when do guest in your "home" or " church body" have to make themselves feel welcome or a part?.. Thought it was our job to bring them in? Not "well you came to our church you have to make yourself a part", throw all the information of cell groups,bible school, bible studied, at you and if you do nothing with it "oh well, it's on you." ( yep I am ranting--- sorry)  On to what this post is really about... Me/ Us.  My heart is that God use me/us and I ask that He speak so clearly to Sam and I as we seek His face, His will for His glory!     Solo para La Gloria de Dios,    Angie

To Live is Christ

I decided this summer to start a new bible study- on my own. It is a Beth Moore study- I am in my second week and it is on the life of Paul. So far it has been very good- today’s time in the Word was on the life of Stephen. You know the very first martyr for Christ. Stephen's story in scripture is very short but very powerful. In the end, he was stoned to death and his last words were similar to the last words of Jesus. “Lord do not hold this sin against them.”

Forgiving someone is not easy but to ask forgiveness of the very people who are killing you. Do wonder wow- how could he? He could have easily asked for the Lord to vindicate him. To make those people who were stoning him suffer for the pain they were causing him. Instead, he asked for God’s mercy to be upon them and for him to not bring judgment down for what they were doing.

Why would Stephen do that? Why would he not ask to live? Why not beg God to stop this and intervene? Stephen realized his life was just a vapor that appears for a little time a vanishes away. He found no value in his life or his physical body. He desired to do the will of God with not only and open heart but arms spread wide. Knowing in the end that he would stand before the throne of Glory and see the face of Jesus. What better reward in life is death.

In our society, “ we tend to equate victory with survival”. The cancerous patient finds victory, after destroying their body, losing their hair, and barely surviving chemo or radiation, if they live, and have no cancer left. The destruction that occurs in the process doesn't matter as long in the end, they can still breath. “To overcome peril is synonymous with living through it.” This mentality we have is such a temporal one. From the eye’s of God when we die for the sake of Christ, as Stephen did, it is the most awesome calling of all. ( I am not saying if you have cancer you should not do chemo or radiation- it was an example of how tightly we hold on to our lives over dying. We would endure anything to live)

The truth is this life is fleeting and as Believers, we are to keep our eyes upon Jesus- holding tightly to Him, and not ourselves. In the end, Stephen’s body broke, and "he laid there covered in blood- Jesus’ blood.” His life glorified the living God all the way to the very end. Never trying to cling to life but being willing to surrender it all for Jesus.

What a testimony!

Are we willing to surrender it all for Jesus?

Godly influences


via Instagram http://ift.tt/1sVwApj

Often we pray for Godly influences in our children's lives. Let's face it- in today society that is so few and far in between. Let's direct our prayers that they stand for righteousness and rise above the crowd. It is hard to be the beam of light. Chances are they won't be cool or popular. Think about eternity whose approval in the end do you seek or even need to enter the gates of heaven? Don't just settle for this life, populArity or being cool. Set your eyes on heaven. #instablog

Biblical Womanhood

It is so hard in our society today to know what true Biblical Womanhood looks like. If you stand for anything at all. If you are strong, with a strong mind and strong opinion then you are not what some Christians would define a “submissive” “meek” or “gentle” woman should be. If you stay home and take care of your children, then you are not worthy or have no worth in todays society. Though raising your children is the hardest job in the world, there is no worth in it in this society.

This sermon is one worth taking the time to watch.

Feminine beautiful Classy Women

What is it suppose to look like to be a feminine,beautiful, classy women in today's society? Today women do not leave anything for a man's imagination. They do not understand how precious of a jewel they are and that men are to work to win their heart and earn seeing any assets they have to offer. Oh how I wish someone would have taught me that I was worth more than comments like, " hey baby what's your name" as they eyed me up and down! I was worth more any fleeting attention a male would want to give me that didn't value me as a person or even as a woman but viewed me as an object. Ladies, you are worth so much more, present yourself in that worthy manner. Realize who you are and make any male work for your attention and affection. Take heed from this older woman- It will save you heartache.

Living life

The hardest thing about watching your children grow into adults, marry or move forward in life is the lack of daily involvement or connection you have. In this season in our lives we (my beloved and I ) are beginning to feel the hole that occurs in our hearts when one child is missing from our lives. We never encouraged our children to join the military for many reasons. I know some would wonder why since my beloved and I were priory military. It is based on that knowledge and experience is why we did not want them to join. Did we have bad experiences, no. In all actually I loved the military and why I never went back in I HAVE NO IDEA. I guess back then the extreme sense of responsibility towards my children overrode any desire or dreams I had for my life in sense of a career. We did not want our children in that system. We brought our children up in the ministry of reconciliation ( Christ ministry), to be Warriors for the Kingdom of Christ. To guide those around them to Christ through not only words, but how they live. The military serves one purpose- it is a ministry of wrath. It is brings consequence to those around us who would dare choose to come against this nation.While the Word says to love our enemies and to do good to those who persecute you ( which is someone who goes against you) So tell me how do we walk in both ministries without giving our allegiance more to one than another? Oh there is the prime question that most "American" Christian can not answer. The military requires your allegiance to them, to their mission, and to your job. (It becomes the God in YOUR LIFE and your heart) It is such a delicate balance. One in which if you are not grounded. If you are not seeking Christ each day, you will get completely into it. Completely unaware that you are there or that your allegiance has shifted. Military does provide you a sense of purpose, gives you direction, knowledge in a field, and also opportunities out of the military to work in different aspects of a career. It doesn't come without its pro's but at what cost? At the cost of your walk with Christ? How do we balance all of this within us? For those of you who are tempted to comment please think carefully. These are my inner most feelings about all of the changes occurring in my life.(hence this is my opinion based on scripture and my experience) Our walk with Christ is to be most important to us. There are some very close to us who think we are ridiculous and honestly even go as far as to say we "take this to seriously" ( our Christian walk) or even go as far to say " we are "too radical" for Christ"! My words to you who think those thoughts: Christ was so radical about his love for you he spread his arms wide and was nailed to a cross for his love for you. So tell me what is really too radical for Christ. Nothing we do, nothing I do in this life will compare to the sacrifice that was made for me. My concern is not how successful my children are in this life time,how big their houses are or what kind of job they get, but how they love the Lord their God with all their heart soul and mind so that one day when they stand before the mighty King who will call their name from the Lamb's book of life. Also, I may see their faces for all eternity as we stand before the Lord in worship. Solo para la gloria de Dios Angie
