  1. 1Jn 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— 1Jn 1:2 the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us— 1Jn 1:3 that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. John is also very convincing. The point is he was a witness to the resurrection and so is more convincing than than someone who is merely reporting about it third hand. That perhaps is why Jesus said He would give us power to witness after the Holy Spirit had come upon us. We witness as to what we have seen and heard and touched.
  2. Praying that God lead you to a good employer and that He give you an extra measure of grace with them to see your strengths. In Jesus Christ's name, amen!
  3. My point is that one experiential demonstration was far more effective than had I only reasoned probabilities in a classroom. I was a witness of the puzzling expression when I gave them the check and the amazement when they took it all in when they held the bank notice. You can read about God's provision for the Jews in the wilderness, but it quite another when you see it happen before your eyes. Moreover, If God can do this things today, It doesn't take any stretch of the mind to believe that God did it so many centuries ago.
  4. I goofed when I typed. God was not Lord of all my life till I stoped questioning Him. He used me to help provide for the need to the dollar for someone else before they were even aware they were overdrawn at the bank. I actually just provided for the overdraft charge but my friend who was also led to give provided for the main amount. That fact that God would use me to help do this before they had even received their notice from the bank just blew my mind. He is every bit the omniscient, omnipresent God Who provides our needs that the Bible describes. Rational arguments didn't do nearly as much as this demonstration of God's love for these Christians that I had never met.
  5. I have had that happen. It is an opportunity to forgive her, ask that God bless her, and to pray for her. It doesn't matter as much what they think or do, it matters how I respond. I can't change them. I can change me.

    Hello

    Hi Darrell. Welcome to Worthy. That is the goal of many of us here.
  7. Welcome to Worthy, Shauna. Raising kids is hard. Sorry you have suffered so. God just asks that we forgive them. We had suffered some of those things as well.
  8. Welcome to Worthy, loverof, I do hope this site will be a blessing to you.
  9. This was further brought home to me when I was incapacitated for 3 months. I felt so worthless, not even being able to cook for family or do any chores. My knees were bloody from crawling. So I was consumed with self pity. That is when God spoke to my heart that He loves me simply because He created me, and now because He lives in me. I don't have to do anything at all. He simply loves me. It is a hard thing to wrap our minds around that we don't have to do anything at all, and He still loves and treasures us simply because we are. We don't even have to hold down a job or do the things needed to be done.
  10. She is 14, an old decrepit lady like me. We little old ladies have to stick together.. She is deaf and blind, has back trouble, seizures, so life is getting scary for her. We are attached at the hip.
  11. What did they expect when they legalized hard drugs and prostitution. It was good when our son lived there, too.
  12. I don't often feel I love God either. My love is so inadequate and puny when compared to His sending His son to suffer and die for me. Mine is brotherly love for God-- more like affection, deep friendship and that of a daughter; I have not shed my blood on His behalf though that may be required someday. All I do know it that life is not worth living without Him--in the filth and shallowness of the world. When Jesus said to Peter, do you agape love me? Peter replied I phileo love you Lord. So Peter realized his love was brotherly as well. Eventually he did die for God.
  13. We normally reach 100 around Memorial Day, but these cold fronts relieve us often. Our hot spell ranges from the 4th of July to mid September, with the last week of July through mid August often staying over 100 to 112.
  14. The Holy Spirit in my heart cries Abba, Daddy. Gal 4:6 And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” Jesus Christ lives in me to love and forgive others. 2Co 13:5 ESV Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!
