Just was sitting around today and thinking--I wonder what the people in Worthy would answer....

For those who have been walking with Christ for awhile now, what do you think is the most valuable lesson you've learned thus far in life?

 

You can give more than one if you want. :) I won't count....

It's Between

 

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6

 

And

 

What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?
I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
Psalms 116:12-13

 

Summed Up By

 

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Psalms 23:1-3

 

Trust Jesus

About 10 yrs ago, while I was writing up a reply to a post on another forum, to an unbeliever, I remember thinking at the 2 hr mark "why is this so hard?"

 

What I felt the Lord tell me right then was "If you had studied the bible all these years like you should have done, this wouldnt be so hard."

 

I didnt like that reply. 

 

Thoroughly chastened. And yet still a bit lazy ... a lot lazy ... when it comes to studying the bible.

I have learned that the Lord is the only one we can ever trust completely.  Even the best meaning person will fail us, but God never has or will!

Never and I repeat never, if you have Parkinson's do the following when attending a tea party.,,,,,, :26:

 

Take a plate of scones with clotted cream and in the other hand hold a tea cup and saucer, 

Then proceed to try and shake hands while trying to juggle both of them. 

 

The result can be disastrous, the clotted cream will end up on the carpet   :rolleyes:  :help:

 

Just on a side note, the clotted cream with nonchalance was slowly rubbed into the carpet with one's shoe .  :whistling:  :sneaking:

On a return visit for tea one's eye immediately dropped to see if the mark had been removed.

 

I am happy to inform you that the corgi's had done a good job  :sherlock:

Ya--I've been convicted of this about a few months ago...became very serious about studying the Bible. :) Good lesson

Except for a very few who God has chosen, all one needs to know about spiritual warfare you can find in the book of Ephesians.....    you do not need to know the inner workings of the dark side to fight them....   you could never in all eternity win a fight with them by yourself.....   and if you are not by yourself, you don't need any other information.

 

I went through a living hell to be able to inform you of that little tidbit of wisdom...

Without Christ I can do nothing of any worth.

Trust and obey.

To lean heavily on Christ, trusting Him with every detail of my life.
To rejoice in Christ, to come before Him with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise.
To come boldly to the throne of grace.
To allow Christ to live in me to love and forgive others.
To not think of myself more highly than I ought.
To continually live in God's presence.

These are things I have learned but continue to grow in as I practice them.

What I have learned? hmm... I have learned a lot I've learned that no matter what a person has done or what they what they act like and especially what they look like its not my place to look down upon them because I myself am a sinner as well.

 

I have learned how God sees ppl, how deeply he cares for even the most vile person. How he sees each person as a treasure more beautiful that heaven, more important to him  than his throne and recieving glory and praise and I have learned who he is. Ever since I learned this i knew I wanted to be exactly like that and would accept nothing less.

 

So i guess you could say I have taken a peek into the heart of God and that little peek taught me so much

 1-Keep God First,above everything  & everyone

 2-Praise God in all things & to Him be ALL Glory

 3-Knowledge gets in the way of Wisdom

 4-His Grace is sufficient

 5-If the Holy Spirit does not move me to speak.....be quiet!

 6-Remember always.....Whom I represent

 7-Do all things in Love

 8-Never accuse anyone(even my own eyes can deceive me)

 9-When tho "kick the dust off my feet"

 10- Don't block the Blessings

 Every one of these 10 things I have learned comes with a Testimony that was for my good & to God be the Glory,after a half a century I have learned many more lessons and my hope is that they will all Bless someone and reflect the image of Jesus Christ,Praise the Lord!

clotted cream...yummmmm....good for the Corgis LOL!

 

Well, one thing I have learned big time is it's just really really bad for you to go ahead of God and not wait for Him even if you think He is not answering you

NOUN (plural corgis) A dog of a short-legged breed with a fox like head.

The corgi's origin is difficult to trace.

They can be traced back to a 11th-century manuscript of a Welsh cattle dog.

It is however, difficult to prove if this is the Corgi we know today.

 

All I can add is, that they do appear to have a liking for clotted cream.  :whistling:
