  1. This morning I started getting stabbing pains in my left upper rib (the back of it.) They came out of the blue. Really strange. I took 3 ibuprofen about an hour ago. But I continue to get these. Please pray the Lord will touch and heal me. Thanks.
  2. Hi!! Can u please pray that my moms health is well. Her thigh has an abnormal lump thing on it. It’s scarying my sister and I. We also only have one car right now, so arranging doctor appointments take time out of work for my parents which strains them. Thanks you so much!! Stay Blessed💕✨
  3. Lord, Please bless Turtletwo and her family with spiritual blessings, salvation and repentance where needed, good health and for her children's work go smoothly. Good health for her mother also may she get excellent care. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen
  4. I tried to avoid ironing but my wife won't let me wear spandex...
  5. Hi danab, Actually those brought up from the dead are a mix of unbelievers and those who never had the opportunity to know Jesus. Thus God is judging them on their works as God`s word says. If their works show that they lived according to a God-given conscience, doing what is right and not wrong, then their names will be in the book of life. The book of life is opened to show who is in there. Those who rejected the Lord will not be in the book of life. The Body of Christ is NOT judged, as the Lord took our judgment. if it was just us in the book of life the book would be closed at the great white throne. God has great mercy for those who never heard of His Son but lived right lives. Marilyn.
  6. Thank you Lord, for teaching me the important of forgiveness, being direct, and asking for what you need. Thanks also, SkilletFan for helping me realize a pattern in myself: getting hurt/offended and running away or avoiding the issue. When I first got married, I transferred from four-year college to a two-year. But at the four-year, I had several close girl friends. They had conflicted emotions about me getting married and going away. Each was different. I tried to keep up with them, but largely felt they abandoned me. Just like my group from high school. For a while I decided basically no one was worthy of opening up to or being close with. I was hurt and carrying all this rejection and bitterness. I asked the Lord to help but it never went away. I'm starting to realize though that just because you need boundaries, doesn't mean you can just avoid every conflict or addressing every thing that hurts you. You can never keep friends that way. No matter how hard I tried, i couldn't just bury all those hurt feelings. It affected me. It affects me now. I'm starting to address the people who have really hurt me, one by one. If they want to be my friend, cool. If not, cool. If just distant friends. Fine, too. But i want to say respectfully exactly what they did that hurt me, leave their response up to them and move on. Please pray that I can learn when to address someone who hurts me, whether it be my husband, an old friend, or a current friend. It's good to overlook some faults, but I'm starting to see that I would just get hurt or offended by a person and never speak to them again! But the hurt always stayed. If I am to have the fellowship with other believers and friends I want, I need to stop doing this. So pray for me to forgive and address people if necessary. Thanks.

    If one never heard the good news they will be judged by there works. If they have works of faith. In there hearts they know there is a God so conduct them self from that. God will be mercyful.
  8. Perhaps, you should try the individual Fellowship forums for the different age groups. I'm sorta of the opposite ... I still see the best is ahead of us. While people often look at the glass half empty -- I'm looking at the glass half-full. While some focus on the tares ... I chose not to ignore the tares, but also realize the wheat is growing with the tares! I believe you're seeing a real change of pace on the forums over the past month. As we've basically realized there are some people that SHOULDN'T post freely in a forum environment because of this very issue. Without love, we're just a clanging cymbal ... so we're seeing the change in moderation style start to affect all the forums. Yes, it did happen in the past, and we've isolated the issue and I believe you'll see more conversations in love with various viewpoints expressed. A lot of this took place in the political forums, and this issue was dealt with. I don't know about that ... I personally have seen this debate for 20 years. This is not a new debate and wasn't settled 300 years ago ... and continues to be the same debate rehashed over and over again. I can see both side of the debate ... and I've posted my opinion on the matter, and I certainly have had people in the ministry team that we're on opposite sides of this same issue over the years. I just want a place for believers to be able to work through doctrines in love. When you can simply have a conversation in love, I believe the Holy Spirit in the end will draw all men to the truth. The problem is when the Spirit is quenched ... I didn't arrive to my views on my own, but rather through experience, through the Word, and being led of the Spirit -- and I realize I'm not a completed work! So as long as we have the fundamental understandings that the Bible is the final authority on matters ... we can simply discuss the Word in love and how that may apply to every day living! I hope I answered all your questions. God bless, George
  9. I think we all have needs within each of the areas you have mentioned and they create the dynamics of those relationships Paul said Php_4:11 I am not saying this because I am in any need, for I have learned to be content in whatever situation I am in. 1Ti_6:8 With food to eat and clothes to wear; content we are in everything. Heb_13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be content with what you have, for God has said, "I will never leave you or abandon you." I think these fit hand in glove with your outline. A piece of wisdom I heard is; we have 3 areas in our life we need to keep balanced....get one out of wack and it effects the others 1. our spiritual life 2. our personal life 3. our professional life I think the work of living in the Kingdom includes being aware of our perceived needs and those of others then balancing those out with what is really needed.
  10. The Assembly of God teaches that it is proof. I don't agree with that. On Worthy we say that the fruit of the Spirit is evidence: love joy peace long-suffering, kindness goodness meekness faithfulness and self control. Also, the Holy Spirit will bear witness in your heart that you are God's child. You will be able to understand the Scriptures more clearly and see how they apply to your life.. These are all evidence of the Holy Spirit being in your life.
  11. I’m sorry to hear abour your mom’s health problem, Kenzie. I know how concerning it must be for you and your sister. Please know that I’m standing with you in prayer for her healing. It is a great comfort to know that we serve a compassionate, loving God who knows and cares about every detail of our lives. May He prove Himself her healer and sustainer in many tangible ways. Grace amd peace to you.
  12. Naomi, I have always been drawn to your transparency and being real. It is a blessing each time you post and this time a reminder to all of us to keep short lists. Thank you for being a part of Worthy. Praying as well.
  13. The sooner you can get her to a doctor the better. Please don't put it off! Praying also for God's healing touch and that He would take away your fear.
  14. @Kenzie Sure. I will be glad to pray for her, Kenzie. It looks like you just joined so Welcome To Worthy!
  15. Father, I pray for Bk1110 father Lord. For healing from the cancer, that the treatment will also be effective with minimal side effects. I pray for strength and good health for the whole family especially also Bk1110's mom. Blessing on her job and may she be able to retire as planned in June. I pray her work would go smoothly too. Blessings on Bk110 also. In Jesus name, Amen.
  16. Scripture says; Luke 16:10 (NASB) "He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much. “faithful in a very little thing”. Scripture calls us to be faithful in a very little thing, as a steppingstone to the greater thing. If we fail to be faithful in the small things is it a wonder we’re not entrusted with that which would be considered a larger thing? As believers who would be pleasing to our Creator in both large and small things, let us, as He has said be faithful in the small things. So as scripture says; James 4:10 (NASB) Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you. It is the small things that we must be found faithful in first. But what does in mean to be found faithful in the small things? Prayer? Bible reading? Sharing Christ? All these things are good and proper. But what is still lacking? You can have all these things and still not be found faithful in the small things. For if you don’t have the one ingredient to add to all the above, your building castles in the air with your own imagination and self effort. What is that one thing? ...... Righteousness. So what is one to do? When the Spirit of Christ in your heart, brings something to your attention, don’t think it’s to small a thing to worry about. For at that moment of time, that is the obedience God is calling you to. For at that moment of time, that is the standard to which you have obtained. Whether it be a large or small thing. For to be inwardly directed by the Peace of Christ in your heart is what we have been called to. Paying attention to the Peace of Christ in our hearts, and it’s nudgings, in the small things, is that that causes us to grow into the larger things. We have all been called to the larger things, but as new born babes we have to be found faithful in the small things first. For God’s heart is set on our growth and obedience in the small things, is that that comes first. So let us agree with Him, that that too, is what our hearts are set upon. For God would have His children, all His children, walk in newness of life, which is walking in righteousness before Him in the here and now. Blessings, as wise builders, we strive to build, and make this a living reality in our life’s. Much love in Christ, Not me
  17. Hi Naominash, WOw, no wonder you are tired, strung out and frazzled & having a break. What a great many burdens you are carrying and judging yourself on each of those. They are all deep holes that can never be filled except by God. I believe you need to firstly work on your relationship with the Lord. Now instead of going to all those meetings and putting on the face, spend time alone with the Lord and really hear Him. His burden is light, yours is so heavy. When you have peace in your heart that you can only be a helper and not be the `saviour` for all those people then you will relax and enjoy the relationships and watch what GOD is doing not what YOU are doing. Who is Lord, you or Jesus? (I`m saying that as one who cares for you to see how you have placed yourself in the centre of everything, and that everyone needs you so much.) Repent to the Lord and let Him show you what HE is doing in people`s lives. Be real, ask for help, be thankful, & appreciate that the Lord is in control and NOT you, (or any of us). all the best, Marilyn.
  18. None. And for good reason. Cats are crazy.
  19. Yeshua was about two. BC one was the conjunction of Virgo in the Leo constellation. A most unusual thing. September 11 was most likely his birth along withe Moses on Tishri one. The day that Kings are crowned. The wise men would have seen this clearly in the heavens.
  20. `Then Peter opened his mouth and said: "In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nations whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.` (Acts. 10: 14 & 15)
  21. Hi danub, I did not say an unbeliever is added to the book of life. We both agree on that. What I am saying is that God judges all the dead, some knew about Jesus and rejected Him, others NEVER knew about Jesus and His salvation. Those who NEVER knew of Jesus, (& there are millions) will be judged on their works as God`s word says, which shows their motives, from their conscience. God always looks on the heart, God is merciful and knows that many, many people NEVER heard about Jesus, and is NOT going to condemn them for not knowing. Marilyn. BTW there is a difference between an unbeliever, (someone who has heard the good news and rejected it) and someone who has never heard the good news. If they lived by their God given conscience they are called `righteous,` and there are many in God`s word who were like that.
  22. Ever heard the phrase Martha , Martha ye are trouble about many things . IF WE PUT JESUS FIRST , everthing else WOULD be a JOY TO DO . Not many folks are telling you this . Here is the priority . JESUS , TRUTH , FAR Above everything , above even mother , son , daughter , husband wife . Then all others before us . JUST LEARN and focus ON CHRIST . Here is how I get all joy , BY FOLLOWING and OBEYING , KEEPING HIS SAYINGS on my heart , by the grace which HIS own Spirit supplies . For if we love Christ , not a single saying of HIS is burdensome . ITS PURE JOY and HAPPY is the ONE who does them .
  23. its good that you are asking questions!!!! i kinda got where you were coming from as the world is so different to God's ways. that has taken me/taking me the longest time. as i was very into the world i guess. its like everything is in reverse. for exapmple what we think is important oh lets say material things in God's way that is not so. and yeah its ok to have these things its just where they sit in your heart.
  24. Weeeee! I'm still young. For at less another month! Now with that out of the way I will go back and read the rest of your post.
  25. Yes. Praise the Lord! Thanks for asking and also for praying. GBU.
  26. Hi, feeling any better now?
  27. Let God's Word through the power of The Holy Spirit direct you through the means God's Word says The narrow path is following The Scriptures as the number 1 authority... when we suggest a spiritual feeling or intuition as authority we have started down the path of error! Thus why God promised through this success 2 Tim 3:15-17 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. KJV We ask God to direct us in His Word through s/Spiritually inspired teachers that we may teach others also … so as born again possessors of God The Holy Spirit we have the unction to discern truth as we yield to His already learned truth of the Word within us... Sanctification!
  28. Exodus 6:14-20 New King James Version (NKJV) The Family of Moses and Aaron 14 These are the heads of their fathers’ houses: The sons of Reuben, the firstborn of Israel, were Hanoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi. These are the families of Reuben. 15 And the sons of Simeon were Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jachin, Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanite woman. These are the families of Simeon. 16 These are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. And the years of the life of Levi were one hundred and thirty-seven. 17 The sons of Gershon were Libni and Shimi according to their families. 18 And the sons of Kohath were Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel. And the years of the life of Kohath were one hundred and thirty-three. 19 The sons of Merari were Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of Levi according to their generations. 20 Now Amram took for himself Jochebed, his father’s sister, as wife; and she bore him Aaron and Moses. And the years of the life of Amram were one hundred and thirty-seven.
  29. 'And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: .. but they hearkened not unto Moses .... for anguish of spirit, ...... and for cruel bondage. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, .. "Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, .... that he let the children of Israel go out of his land." And Moses spake before the LORD, saying, .. "Behold, the children of Israel have not hearkened unto me; .... how then shall Pharaoh hear me, who am of uncircumcised lips?" And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, .. and gave them a charge unto the children of Israel, .... and unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, ...... to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.' (Exodus 6:9-13) Praise God!
  30. Prayed and Welcome Kenzie.
  31. I agree with willa, we are all so different that our transformation is not necessarily generic. For some it is a process, for others it is immediate. It's not that God is different, He is the same for everyone, but not everyone is truly ready to submit themselves to God. At a moment, they may respond with emotion, but what is truly in their heart only God knows.
  32. I believe for some people they are saved and born again at once, and others are not. I first was convicted of sin, repented and decided to follow Christ when I was in the 8th grade. But I had a lot of bad teaching and was caught in a web of trying to be good enough to go to heaven. Deception. Even though I was baptized, it took some years for me to understand that salvation is by faith. So I backslid and came back to God in 1970. This time when I was convicted of sin I knew I was lost and could never be good enough. Only God's mercy would save me. Again I start walking in the Spirit obeying that which He showed me to do. Finally I surrendered all-- all my doubts, struggles and resistance, all my questions and every area of my life. That was when the Holy Spirit came upon me and I knew but I knew God. Every word of the Bible came alive to me and was pertinent. Joy flooded over me for days. Some people call it a second blessing. I haven't figured it all out. I began in the Spirit in the 8th grade and started over in the Spirit when I was 25.
  33. Glory , hallelujah and praise the LORD . Keep up the wonderful work . You all are loved .
  34. Our first apartment was two rooms and a bathroom in a complex of many apartments all alike., was hard to find my own sometimes. Cost $63 a month including utilities. That was ninety cents less than my car payment. There were no overtime laws and we were "salaried". I was paid $325 a month to be on duty most of the time (Funeral business). I had two Sundays a month off plus one and a half Saturdays. Gasoline was usually 25 cents a gallon. My first three bedroom two bath home cost only $24,600 brand new.
  35. If poor wretched sinners like us have concern about “ fairness”, don’t you think a perfect God That is full of a Love we can’t e ven fathom is at least a “ tiny” bit concerned? He knows exactly what He is doing and the Bible says that those who never had the Law have it written in their hearts .Their conscience tells them the same truths that the Law gives and their thoughts will either accuse them or defend them.God has a more than fair plan for all. I am not smart enough to be God’s critic......are you?
  36. Hi danub, Glad you brought that up. Now when someone hears the good news of Jesus dying for their sins and receives Him by His Holy Spirit into His heart, then they do NOT come under God`s judgment. Jesus took our judgment upon Him on the cross. And wonderfully, our names are written in the book of life. (as you said). Our names are written there BUT we will not be judged at the great White throne or anywhere. However...many people do not hear or know about Jesus dying for them. God, who is rich in mercy will only judge them according to their works. They are the dead who are brought to life to face the judgment of the Great White Throne. If they had lived their life according to their God-given conscience then their names will also be in the book of life, which is why it is opened. The other dead who did not do according to their God-given conscience but live only to themselves, will be judged on what they have done and then judgment will be passed accordingly. Those people did not want to live with a right conscience but took pleasure in selfishness. Hope that is more helpful, Marilyn.

    Being Saved

    Our God is the only ONE Who can judge righteously. He knows the very thoughts and hearts of people. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. None is righteous, no not one. We all are deserving of God's wrath. That is why, in His love, He sent His Son to redeems us and pay for our sin with His own blood. Whosoever wants to may come. If they reject the Truth, it is their own doing. All we can do is present them with the Gospel of God's love and pray for them. Perhaps you can write to these people and tell them of God's love for them if you missed your opportunity to share the Gospel. God can set them free from the lies of Satan and of false religions. Never underestimate the power of God and of His word.
  38. So I'm going through a list of people I've hurt and people who've hurt me and sending them apologies or addressing ways they hurt me. I'm clearing the air! It's amazing how much lighter I feel! Forgiveness. Who woulda thought that's the key to healing. Oh wait. Jesus taught that.
  39. Willa

    hi

    You are in the right place to learn about God, His righteousness, and His overwhelming love for you. He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins on a cross so that you can be forgiven and be adopted into God's family. He wants to know you even more than you want to know about Him. So we welcome you here with open arms as we also want you to know the joy, peace and love that God gives us when we become followers of Christ.

    I read that and see that it applies to those who are listed in the book of life. Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Rom 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. Faith is what gets you into the book (saves you). That's how I understand it.
  41. Welcome to Worthy, Metalharpey! Nice to meet you. Thanks for sharing a lil about yourself. This is a great place, and I’m sure you’ll find a lot of help and support. I hope you’ll enjoy your stay here. God bless you!
  42. Nobody is predicting the day or the hour the Lord is returning. But the fact is ... that a simple observation will clearly show my previous points as accurate. Satan is not bound ... and he's running around, like a lion seeking whom he may devour! So clearly we are not in the Kingdom of peace promised --YET! But it is coming!
  43. Here is something that happened yesterday and I havent posted elseswhere yet.... My drivers license expires in a couple of weeks and I have been dreading renewing it. Im bald, my eyes are a bit blurry thanks to chemo (they will readjust over time) and I havent seen the eye doc in a few ... many ... years. So I was stressed over 1) having a photo of bald jadey 2) having to make the time to get new glasses when my eyes were not yet back to normal. Yesterday out of the blue I got a letter from mvd stating that my drivers license has been extended for 5 yrs and I do not need to do anything to renew it. The Lord takes care of me even in small things.
