  1. 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
  2. Everyone needs contact comfort and fellowship. But the more you focus on what you do not have the worse your problem will be. God tells us to get our eyes onto Jesus. Heb 12:1 ESV Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, Heb 12:2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Heb 12:3 Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. Heb 12:4 In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. Rom 8:5 NKJV For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. Rom 8:6 For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. Php 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Php 4:5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Php 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; Php 4:7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Php 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. You may think this is not touching your problem. Well, it works for me. And now I am completely alone. No five year old to care for or husband at all, no parents or siblings. But I do have 2 grown sons with wonderful families that love the Lord. They are always willing to pray for me on the phone. So there are voices that care. And you evidently underestimate the power of prayer. It does help to sustain us. No, God doesn't always heal; He always does what is best for us and uses it to good. Your anger is an understandable part of your grief. Just never blame God or you will be walking the path of Job. Blame satan for corrupting the world with sin and disease but never turn your anger onto God. Try counting your blessings and focus on on spiritual blessings in Christ. Is that trite? NO. It is the way out of your grief. I lost a dad, that was the personality I knew as my dad, due to a stroke when I was 15. You have lost the wife that you knew. I was losing the husband I had married as well, since we could no longer do the things we had enjoyed doing together. He couldn't remember things as recent as an hour ago. So I loved and enjoyed him just the way he was. And we rejoiced in that fact that we had 54 years together. So get your eyes on all that God has done for you! I am giving you a kick in the rear! I know your need is real and you are hurting. I can only share with you what has helped me through the last 6 years. Try buying a dog and giving it a hug. Be there for your daughter. Try praising and worshipping God for all that you have. Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, Eph 1:4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, Eph 1:5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, Eph 1:6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. Eph 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace Eph 1:8 which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, Eph 1:9 having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, Eph 1:10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. Eph 1:11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, Eph 1:12 that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory. Eph 1:13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, Eph 1:14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
  3. I have never been a man of solitude. Yet, even with all the friends and family dropping in and one party after another throughout the holiday season, I couldn't help but feel that my wife's Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease has separated me from life and into a narrow corner of isolation. The holiday gatherings, Christmas cards, texts and calls could not replace the simple joy of being held and caressed by the woman I've loved for over 30 years. So, there I was, longing for the lost intimacy from someone who, if approached gently and with patience, could still be willing, but there is this 'Big Problem'. In her current advanced condition, I can not cross that invisible boundary that separates husband of a once vibrant, strikingly beautiful woman. I cannot enjoy intimacy with her. She is like a five year old little girl in a grown woman's body. So any thoughts of intimacy is gone forever. She often doesn't even know who I am. So far, I've been faithful and cared for her in the best manner possible but, now I'm starting to feel the physical effects of the loneliness, anticipatory grief and depression that is common among caregivers. Many, due to the stress and heartbreak of seeing a loved one die, one brain cell at a time, pass before the patient does, even if they've always been in excellent health. We had talks over five years ago and she encouraged me to find someone. Am I banished to a life of solitude, devoid of human touch for the next several years? Or resolve to not become the second victim by finding someone with whom I can enjoy meaningful adult conversations, a warm touch or even a day out with my wife, taking her to a movie, getting her nails done or something as simple as shopping for puzzles they can work on together. In that way, I'd be able to honor my marriage vows, "in sickness and in health" so much better than if I'm lost in a sea of depression and die before she does. PP
  4. Hi my name is Micki. Can you please pray for my husband Brian... I pray that he would want to come home.. He cheated and left me at the beginning of 2018 for our teenage girl next door that he only knew for a few weeks. We were together for 6 year and only had been married for 4 months before this happened. No fights between us nothing before this happened. Idk what changed in him he isnt the type to do this kind of stuff. I have also been dealing with cancer while going through this at the same time. I juse finished up chemo and radiation treatments. And reached out to Brian in October. We have only just now slowly started talking again. I just pray that God would be with him and that he would want to come back home to me and want to rebuild our family and marriage again. I do forgive him and I do love him unconditionally. It just breaks my heart so much. I just pray so hard that God could get through to him. I know only God can. I pray that Brian could find Jesus and have a relationship with him. I know Brian is an amazing man, he jas just made some mistakes the same as we all do. I know God as a plan for his life.

  6. When I think of being faithful in small things, I often think of small practical things a Christian might do for another....like a senior citizen who is unable to do certain things or has difficulty doing something, or is lonely, etc. It might be a small thing to do for us but might mean so much to someone else. Also, as we are faithful in doing the small things, the Lord will often open doors to bigger things.
  7. 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.
  8. Praying for you. God can restore your marriage if it's his will. Keep praying and don't give up.
  9. Dear Worthy members, I advise you to pray for our country, president, government, and fellow federal workers who are being affected by the "shutdown." We need strong, faithful, and kind prayer warriors who will stand up and fight against the powers and forces of darkness. Pray for those who pray and have prayed for us. Lay hands on the weak, strong, small, big, faithless, and hopeless Christian(s). Let us stand in unity and faith. Set aside your differences and fight together. Don't let Satan stop us from uniting just because I'm a democrat and you may be a republican. Or, I'm black, and you may be white or Mexican. We all have at least three things in common: 1. We all have fallen short of the glory of God 2. We are loved, cared for, and favored by God 3. We have been saved ( or prayerfully will be) saved by the grace and mercy of God. My prayer is that we can and will defeat this enemy, and that we can set are differences aside and reason together, as Jesus did with us. Thank You, -East
  10. Hello all!! Glad to be amongst like minded thinkers!
  11. Friends, sister was to marry on 10th and it was cancelled at the last moment. The problem still continues. we are not able to solve Can you agree and pray that God help and find a solution to this problem. Let God solve this problem and bless us. Thank you!
  12. Hello there, I have just returned home from visiting family members. One talked of his favourite musicians, of his life and death, having been addicted to drink and drugs and finally taking his own life. Into my mind came a verse which has often come into my mind during this last year (1 Peter 2:11-12). 'Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. (1 Peter 2:11-12) 'That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.' (Ephesians 4:22-24) * I thank God that I was able to share this with him: for these fleshly lusts are 'deceitful lusts' which war against the soul: or the whole man, the body energized by the spirit of life making a living soul. * These lusts at their worst can become addictions, in which the body is deceived into dependence upon them: such as drink, drugs, and other cravings of the flesh best left unspoken. Leading to depravity or death. * As these verses show, we who are saved by grace, are to put on the new man, by faith: by reckoning on the total sufficiency of the finished work of Christ and His all-sufficent sacrifice for sin. For we have been identified with Christ in His death, burial, quickening, resurrection and ascension to God's right hand: this is the Spirit's baptism: so have died with Christ to the flesh and all it's claims, and been raised to newness of life before the Father, in Him. We are dead unto sin and alive unto God. Believe it! Rejoice in it! For the righteousness of God has been imputed to us, in Christ Jesus our Saviour, Lord and Head. Praise His Holy Name. In Christ Jesus Chris
  13. What does it mean to sin? SIN...Biblical archery term. To miss the mark. The target. The standard. The law. The will of God.I can't do it, hit the mark that is. God says so. Unless I call God a liar. But. God says, I am dead to sin. I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. A new creation. I can do all things, in Christ! Not I, but Christ. In me. The mind of Christ. Abide.
  14. So true Debp, if we are obedient to God in the small things, He is faithful and just to give, require, offer, us the greater things to walk in. Which quite often, are such a blessing to us, as we could never have imagined, blessings, As I’m sure you know, and have tasted. There are many spiritual principles in the Bible that cover life itself. Thanks for your thoughts and insights, as we both feed our relationship with the One who is personally teaching us all things. For He teaches us, as He said, with His “eye upon us” Blessings Thanks for the smiles/joy this morning, SelahSong. For when I read the words; “when prompted by the Holy Spirit” they brought such a smile to my face, than to read; “are in God’s eyes very BIG indeed”. The smile turned to joy. As scripture says; we feed off of each other’s faith. Thanks for feeding and giving me strength this morning. Thanks for the muchity munch. Blessings, Much love in Christ, Not me
  15. You might be the first person to ever say that,lol. This site seems to have grown over the last couple of years, great to see!

    Being Saved

    Thank you to everyone who has responded to my queries. I have much food for thought. You have all given me great advice and loads of information. God bless each of you. Dana
  17. Yes but someone who is dependent upon the government is less likely to have that determination. People are short sighted...people on welfare are more likely to vote democrat...why? Because of the money theyre afraid a Republican will cut their welfare check. As the old saying goes give a man a fish youll feed them for a day. Teach a man to fish and youll feed him for a lifetime. The governments form of help is give a man a fish a day and they will always do your bidding...Because after awhile they will have lost all motivation to learn how to fish.
  18. First off I am praying for steady, reliable work for your husband! You pray about each and every other activity, whether God has called you to do it or if it is "busy work". You should be giving yourself time after your Bible study and prayer and husband in priority. I used to combine exercise and self time by taking a 5 mile walk! The exercise worked off the stress hormones and it gave me time to talk to God, to enjoy nature, to cry if I was frustrated, etc. If I couldn't walk I would take a long, hot bath. When you do have kids your time is not your own till you get them all into school. They really do depend on you. God had to tell me to stay home with my kids. So learning to weed out the things God has not called you to do is important. Learn to say no. And make sure you are not taking on stuff to get away from the house and your husband's demands. Tell your husband that you need his support, his encouragement and his hugs. After hubby was saved it took the death of my dad for him to finally sit next to me on the bed and ask "what can I do to help?" It was one of those times I just needed him to hold me and tell me everything is going to be alright. And it took a stay in the hospital with a crushed foot for him to start doing housework and cooking, which he had always called "woman's work". Making a marriage work is hard work. If the two of you can make it to Christian marriage seminars, it is worth the expense and time to improve any marriage. Sometimes they are offered through churches and sometimes they are public. Some have really funny speakers that help you laugh at yourselves and the mistakes you are making. Sending you a hug, Naomi.
  19. I am so sorry Micki that you had to have cancer treatments and deal with this at the same time. I hope and pray for healing from your cancer and good health for you. Praying your husband will get saved and repent and you can restore your marriage. May God richly bless you.
  20. Hi danab, I quite understand and thank you for being honest. And yes the Bible would be difficult without God`s Holy Spirit to reveal it to us. Some things are straight forward, history, while other scriptures are talking of spiritual things. Good that you believe in a God, the Creator. That is a huge step. Now we need to remember that God is a `friend of sinners,` (of which we all were/are). Thus He knows our difficulties. There was a man in God`s word who cried out to God, "Please help my unbelief." So God is ever ready to help us on this journey of getting to know Him. May I suggest you could pray, "Lord, please help my unbelief," and be patient for God to reveal to you the next step. regards, Marilyn.
  21. So sorry to hear about your trials. the Lord has a plan for everyone, hang in there and pray is all I can say to you at present. I have seen it from another perspective and it is so very sad. No one can give you happiness; that comes from within yourself. Even your man can not obtain your happiness. He might contribute to it, but your happiness is your responsibility. You and the Lord. Pray and make God happy with your praise - even tearful praise. See what happens.
  22. Exodus 7:6-10:29 New King James Version (NKJV) 6 Then Moses and Aaron did so; just as the Lord commanded them, so they did. 7 And Moses was eighty years old and Aaron eighty-three years old when they spoke to Pharaoh. Aaron’s Miraculous Rod 8 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, 9 “When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, ‘Show a miracle for yourselves,’ then you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your rod and cast it before Pharaoh, and let it become a serpent.’ ” 10 So Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and they did so, just as the Lord commanded. And Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent.
  23. He is calling to your heart, Albin! "For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved" (Romans 10:10). Can you just say out loud that Jesus is Lord? Listen to yourself say it. Let others hear you say it. It's true, you know! I am praying for you!
  24. Blessings, In a situation like this, I find it hard to believe that his heart was not pricked toward proper behavior. It is in the small things obedience is learned. Whether or not he wanted to continue doing the job is a separate issue. But the will to listen to what the Peace of Christ in one’s heart is saying. These lessons are for all God’s children that would follow Him truly. Whether one wanted to be a Missionary or a Gardener, the Spirit of Christ is the same in both. Righteousness is righteousness. To all, torwards all, in all circumstances and situations. It is obedience in the small that causes great increase and growth. Blessings, Much love in Christ, Not me
  25. Its cool. They have 6 sea turtles in 2 tanks. 1 of them was only raised in captivity elsewhere and it is doubtful it could survive in the wild. The others either were hit by propellers and have a combination of bubblebutt and/or paralysis or lost limbs due to nets etc. The vets are attempting to attach weights to their shells to help the ones with bubblebutt swim to the bottom of the tanks. Which helps their muscles as well.
  26. Humility and willingness are really big requirements, as is diligence. I have a neighbor who wants to be a missionary. I hired him to help with weekly yard work for just my back yard. He came weekly or every other week for a couple of months and then he just stopped coming. He didn't say anything to me or his family. He just stopped. I paid him $10. per week for working about 15 minutes.
  27. Peace with God Through Faith Romans 5 ESV Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned— for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come. But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many. And the free gift is not like the result of that one man's sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification. For if, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ. Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous. Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
  28. So true, the law was given that sin might be made manifest. So as you brought forth, mankind might see their need of a Savior. Would to God that all mankind would see their need. Blessings, Much love in Christ, Not me
  29. Welcome to Worthy Picky. You certainly do have a problem and one I have not faced to the same extent. A care givers support group might have ideas for you. My husband had beginning stages of Alzheimers and we could still talk about things we did many years ago. He was lonely as well and going through a lot of grief so was very depressed. I didn't know how to help him. He refused to take the medications that might have helped. We still prayed together every night and he would agree with me. That had always been a real bonding time and it helped a little. He was unable to turn his head to kiss or do much with his right hand due to arthritis. So it even hurt to give me a kiss. Fortunately he passed away in Oct. of 17 so we didn't go through the extent that you have. It must be very hard on your daughter as well. Do either of you have parents that might help? That would at least be someone else to talk to and share the burden of your grief.
  30. 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.
  31. The superficial answer is “Breaking of God’s law.” The deeper answer is “Sinning is the state or condition of all man.” For example, a fish swims and a sinner sins. Everyone is born into a condition called sin (Except for Jesus who is without sin). No one can escape this condition by obeying the law or doing righteous works. The bible compare the righteousness of a sinner to a filthy rag. Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. The law was given to make everyone aware that he/she is a sinner. Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. The law cannot save anyone. But the law is necessary. Because without it, everyone will not know what is sin. Resulting in not having the need for a saviour (Jesus).
  32. It is a wonderful prayer request, and I am praying for the same thing. God bless
  33. I would just like to go ahead am state to anyone that keeps saying things like God wasn't at the beginning of the relationship. Well god wasnt a part of my life at all until recently. I've only just started to have god in my life. So I do not feel like it's that big of a request to pray that Brian would come to the Lord too.
  34. Father, it is You who is always faithful. You are the One who has remained faithful to Micki throughout her separation from her husband and throughout her cancer treatments. You are the One who gave her the grace and strength she needed to get through each day. You are the One beside her right now. Comfort her in her sadness and once again, give her courage and strength as she tries to rebuild a relationship with her husband. Help her to shine in his eyes as one "more precious than pearls." Help him to see clearly the ugliness of what he has done and repent. Help them both to build a relationship together with You. I ask these things in Jesus' name.... Amen.
  35. Our inability to completely live as God intended us to live is evidenced by particular acts of sin and trespasses. This is something far deeper than trespassing particular rules and speaks to the fall of humanity. Sin as a whole is related to our inability to live the perfect physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually healthy life God had originally planned for humanity. It is our falling short of God's intention and our inability to even reach it through our own efforts. I think Christians often lose sight that our salvation is not just forgiveness of individual trespasses but also becoming a new creation in Christ which directly addresses our sin-nature and the fall of humanity. Forgiveness deals with God overlooking particular trespasses we've committed. Being a new creation in Christ with a new nature directly deals with our inherent sin nature.
  36. Great nick- name,Faither..........welcome to this great site, new friend....
  37. My passion is to discuss Faith and Salvation . Do you have a place you could direct me to?
  38. .....the biggest sin of all is thinking one has no sin......repentance is the cure for that...it sounds like this... “Lord Jesus, have mercy on me, a sinner”...... the sound of a contrite heart , that is where Christianity begins....pray for that contrite heart if you do not possess it.....
