    He Arose....

    He was my light in the darkness when the night would never end I set my eyes on Jesus when the troubles would never end then I remembered the night how dark before Jesus came just before the dawn ~~~~ He arose now Jesus He is my life He arose inside me and knocked the darkness Out like a light He arose inside me as Jesus my life and now His life is my life ~~~~~~ He was crucified on a cross between two thieves and put in a tomb so that all could see a death no pardon He died on that tree but then He arose for you and me. ~~~~~~ He Arose now Jesus He is my life He arose inside me knocked the darkness Out like a light He arose inside me as Jesus my life and now His light is my life His light is now my life....

    Walking In The Spirit...

    I apologize, I didn't mean to cause debate or desension with my post. My intent is to inspire and encourage others through my writing. I fed led to write this post as it is in my blog and desired to share it with others. Many others had read the post without retaliation. I am a Spirit-filled believer. That doesn't make me perfect, it just means that I desire the Holy Spirit to move in my life, and to display His fruit and to mature in Who God has called me to be and not to be ruled by the flesh. Again, I deeply apologize for causing any distress.

    Walking In The Spirit...

    There is a daily battle we must face every day and every night for as long as we live. We must fight the flesh and not let it win, waging war between the lines of what is right, good and holy, and what is wrong, bad, and evil. By the Spirit of the Holy Living God, we have the Spirit's power within us if we are a true believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. He gives us the ability to say "No," and resist the urges of the flesh as we submit to the Word of God. Yet, in those weak times if we don't look to God, we will fall into sin. The devil knows our weakness and will try to put condemnation in our hearts if we cave in and gratify the flesh. He knows us all too well. We have to be vigilant of His schemes and not play in his court. You do not have to give in each time sin knocks at the door of your mind. It's really not sin to be "tempted" by the devil...temptation is not the sin and God does not tempt us with the evils of sin. It is when you let down your guard and give in to the works of the flesh. Galatians 5:19-21 says that "Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God." Yes the devil tries to win us over by catering to the flesh and even to our feelings. The grace of God says we don't have to wallow in sin, but can say no. God’s readiness to give and forgive is now public. Salvation’s available for everyone! We’re being shown how to turn our backs(SAY NO) on a godless, indulgent life, and how to take on a God-filled, God-honoring life. This new life is starting right now, and is whetting our appetites for the glorious day when our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, appears. He offered himself as a sacrifice to free us from a dark, rebellious life into this good, pure life, making us a people he can be proud of, energetic in goodness. Titus 2:11-14 Galatians 5 22:24 says "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires." If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:25 what does it mean to walk in the Spirit. Your Spirit is your sanctified, regenerated soul intertwined with the Holy Spirit....Walking in the Spirit is taking up the victory over the flesh and the devil!! It is walking it out in Your Spiritman. It is our way of escape. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. The one fruit we often don't discuss is self-control. Controlling your "self", when weak in the flesh is a fruit of the Spirit!! We need to allow the Holy Spirit to invade our way of thinking. The scriptures do say that we have the mind of Christ. well why are we allowing sin to win?? Its okay to have self control, because it is the Spirit that is willing to take you that extra miles, and its the flesh that is weak to the fiery temptations of the flesh!!! We must take the shield of faith to quench the fiery darts of the evil one. if we dont suit up in God's armor, we dont stand a chance against the devil...Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 1 Peter 1:13

    Heavy on My heart...

    Yes I have talked to her. She has made up her mind this is what she is going to do to help her daughter with the baby... SHe assures me that nothing is going to happen with her and the ex. I am the one having the doubts. They are all going to be bonding without me. I just dont see me going over to his house even if he is at work.
  11. I am on my second marriage. My wife's youngest daughter is having a baby any day now. Our house is too small for a baby and we have 3 big dogs. They have set the baby's room up at my wife exes apartment. Which means that my current wife will be staying over at my exe's apartment even spending the night over there for several months. I have trying to wrap my mind around this for months when my wife told me....Coming out of my current illness with pneumonia....i dont know it has just stuck me again that I need to get out of this situation. Things are way over my head and I feel a heaviness. what would you do if you were in my shoes??? I just want to run away, and get myself out of this situation for my own sanity.
