    God's grace to me- The pathway He sets forth, - the wondrous adventures experienced in His faithfully working out sanctification of the saints in Christ Jesus. The awe ( to me ) of what He has done for me personally.

  1. Are You in a Desert? Reach for God.

    "And he (Jacob) said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me" (Genesis 32:26) Hi, I think an error has been made in the addition of the name ( Jacob) where it has been placed. For Jacob did not say let me go. Perhaps it is a typo. And Jacob was left alone. And a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day. When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched his hip socket, and Jacob's hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. Then he said, “Let me go, for the day has broken.” But Jacob said, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” And he said to him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Jacob.
  2. A church I saw.

    I found it to be very humorous, so I had to look it up.
  3. Sorry but I am hesitant in this day of hacks and corrupting software to open any doument from unknown sources that may even accidently have become harmful. Is it possible for you just include the content in a post?
  4. A church I saw.

    Offered without comment: Who We Are For a church that preaches “all means all,” it might seem kind of funny to have a name that evokes exclusivity. But when Country Club Christian Church was established in 1920, its founders named the church for its geography, as it was and still is today, located in the Country Club District. But Country Club Christian Church is far from an exclusive club. In fact, our ministers, staff, and board take seriously Jesus’ call to love the neighbor, whether that neighbor is across the street, across town, or across the world Here we believe that the love and grace of God is freely given to all people, regardless of zip code, financial status, race, or sexual orientation. Country Club Christian Church is: Approachable, with a nod to formality Modern, with a respect for tradition Energizing, but contemplative Informed and curious about the world What makes us distinctive? We have a long history of theological openness We are a welcoming, inclusive, supportive, loving community We place a strong focus on outreach and service to the broader community Studying and learning are prioritized We have a beautiful setting for worship Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Country Club Christian Church is a part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) denomination.

  5. Prayer for Mark

    Thank you all. Mark looked ever so much better after dialysis yesterday. He is worn out for sure, but of very good attitude. Shows strength I am not sure if I am personally capable of, so he is a testimony to me of the faith of our Lord and how it will prevade the entirety of our lives.
  6. Okay, I am going to ask; Do you still carry a knife? Do you still envision pulling it on someone to show you are serious? If so do you think you have seen any error in your previous judgement to both carry a knife and to pull it on someone? Seems to me that so far you are not doing well for yourself if you have a job offer and your reaction is to want to destroy anything, never mind wanting to destroy your life. You may want to consider turning all that around, turn it on it's head, and as everyone has been encouraging you to do, cry out for the Holy Spirit of God, turn about immediately, repent from your present course entirely, and ask of God: Where are you", "Please show me that I may be healed of the hurt within that makes me fearful and gives me rages to the point of carrying knife and threatening with it.!" Plea for the awareness of Jesus as your own personal savior and Lord. Yes God does forgive, though men may be very slow to be so kind to you. There is consequence for how each of us lives our lives! You have dug a deep hole with a knife, now you have need to fill that hole back in by changing immediately. Please begin to work at filling in that hole with love and make a new landscape, a beautiful landscape of love for others and for your maker in which you will then reside. That is available just as everyone has told you, in God through Jesus by the help of the Holy Spirit. Ask God, repent of your anger, and if you still carry a knife as a crutch to get respect dump it today! You have need of a far stronger protection than any blade of metal can provide. You have need of Jesus whose very word which the message of His deep deep love and sacrifice is stronger than any other two edged sword of mere metal. There is a song a hymn that comes to mind as I type. It is called O The Deep Deep Love Of Jesus. The lyrics include a strong message that I think may be of calming benefit for you as you do take that step to repentance and security in Jesus. Please please seek out this song on the internet " O THE DEEP, DEEP LOVE OF JESUS - Selah " I am somehow led to think it may be of comfort and benefit to you today. May God bless you, Amen. Oh, the Deep Deep Love of Jesus Audrey Assad Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free Rolling as a mighty ocean In its fullness over me Underneath me, all around me Is the current of your love Leading onward, leading homeward To your glorious rest above Oh, the deep, deep love of Jesus ‘Tis heaven of heavens to me And it lifts me up to glory For it lifts me up to thee Oh, the deep, deep love of jesus Spread his praise from shore to shore How he loves us, ever loves us, Changes never, nevermore Songwriters: Mark Ladd / Samuel T.

  7. Did i find contradiction in bible ?

    For really GREAT FUN! Go to this particular portion of Remy Landau's work http://hebrewcalendar.tripod.com/#24.2 and read through the manner in which any one particular date for a celebration or festival may accurately be derived out of the full Hebrew calendar cycle of 689,472 years of days that vary from 353 days to 385 days in length. Be sure to also look up The Qeviyyot http://hebrewcalendar.tripod.com/keviyyot.html
  8. Conflicts at work

    Praying! Also encouraging you to consider your last sentence- "If I have to keep working there". Why must you keep working there? Here is a thought from a person far removed from your situation, but sharing what reading that which you have written does leave with me as an impression; Perhaps if you reread your own writings here on this thread you may surmise that; you have lost, lost authority, and lost supervision of the classroom, but still may have responsibility for it when something goes wrong, including any violations of State guidelines if you carry the title of supervisor. To potentially be held accountable, but not have authority is a rather untenable position for anyone. It is the position of a scapegoat. There is no winning for a scapegoat. There is for the goat only escape or total loss. From reading your very limited review and request for prayer. I offer for consideration, as I also pray for you, that you do write a summary of understanding for your employer/supervisor, but don't challenge that person within it, nor challenge their directives, in that summary. Also do keep a journal or diary of events and circumstances and importantly list the hours you work, date each entry. Do so for future defense and your personal Christian testimony, not for future attack nor conflict. AND seek new employment elsewhere rapidly, be proactive in positive moves for yourself. It reads like you have need for structure that you consider to be responsible and reasonable, and that the company has need for employees and your own supervisor is quite willing to sacrifice structure in order to maintain number of employees that they need in a "classroom", perhaps to meet State guidelines. Your own supervior is perhaps also in a tough spot and has already made their own decision on what they must do in order to keep their own employment position secure. It is a hard thing for companies today to maintain staff, especially when having to meet physical numbers needed on a limited labor budget, for State or government guidelines. Teachers at many levels and in many "schools" feel that pressure, and the lack of support from their own supervisors/administrators today. In general, it seems to me, many people just do not want to work hard, and certainly not follow instructions well, structure is out the window. It is a hard battle to fight and succeed, that of maintaining a structured environment in much of anything today. I sympathize with your dire plight, encourage you to maintain your good testimony as a Christian, and ask that God the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God, lead you through all that you are going through. Amen ps- From the Book of Matthew comes this advice to all of us. May God also led all of us as to how best to make personal application in following this directive. “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
  9. I think you may have meant grubbing not grumbling. In either case it seems a so what issue for me. I am perfectly happy, a cheerful giver in fact to a church, a local body of Christ Jesus, where I have been led by the Holy Spirit to my ever so gratefully uplifted body, spirit, and soul's benefit. I am so happy to have the privilege of helping sustain the ministry and the employees whether they be full time of part time whether they be elders or staff support personnel, I marvel at the kindness God has extended to me by providing such a grand local body for my benefit!
  10. Please pray for my Mom.

    You have a very positive attitude. I suspect your own countenance is a lift to your mother. Praying for her to hear the call of the Holy Spirit to repentance and for her to heed that call. And praying for her to be able to provide excellent work product for her employer, and for the employer to be kind to her in return.
  11. My Cousin Is Broken&Stressed

    Praying. Lord please, help, help this family. Amen
  12. Conflicts at work

    Hi, The way I understand the problems it reads like a rather dangerous or at least unhealthy situation for very young children. So my first immediate prayer is for their safety. I also pray for you, and for the other staff, that you all very quickly resolve this rather severe sounding problem, or that you seek and find a much better place to work, and that the families of these children are not unaware of how their children are being led at this facility. Father please protect all involved at this place especially the children amen.
  13. Dear sisters in Christ on this message board, I ask of you that you read the posts of a sister from Holland that has expressed herself in the general section of a desire for your companionship. Will you please look the posts of JDSOwn@, welcome her and see if a Christian relationship is to be had there for you and for her? I thank you all for reading, and if so led for praying about this. May it be a blessing for you to get to know this lady. I find this is more for the ladies here, and may be a bit inappropriate for me as a male to get deeply involved within, except to encourage all of you to help one another. Thank you

  15. Worst Christian Advice

    Your English is very easy to understand, and perhaps easier than my own fractured style borne of my New England USA upbringing. I even write with a Bostonian accent! I am going to take liberty and request on the prayer request section for ladies to reach out to you from Worthy Forums so that their opportunity to meet you might be better known.
