    ~Once in royal David's city stood a lowly cattle shed, where a mother laid her Baby in a manger for His bed. Mary was that mother mild, Jesus Christ, her little Child. He came down to earth from Heaven, who is God and Lord of all. And His shelter was a stable, and His cradle was a stall. With the poor, and mean, and lowly, lived on earth our Savior holy.~

  1. According to the standards of this world regarding physical appearance, I have never been considered a "beauty." In fact, I would venture to say that most people who do not know me wouldn't even bother to give me a second look. Yes, this used to bother me if I am honest. But what does God say about physical appearances? Two verses come to mind: Proverbs 31:30: Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. 1 Samuel 16:7: But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” Fortunately, we can turn to our Bible, and help is right there I also would just suggest praying to God to give you peace regarding concerns about this topic.
  2. Hello Worthy Brothers and Sisters, I just applied for a new job opportunity that would be provide me with affordable health insurance (which is something I truly need right now). Praying that if it is His will, that this door to opened for me. I would be working with familiar colleagues and a group of children with significant needs I feel I am called to serve. I also would be able to give my current place more than a 2 week notice due to the timing of Christmas break. Please pray with me that His will be done. Thank you.
  3. Thanks for starting this thread, @turtletwo! Many of my favorite Christmas songs I sang when I was a child in the church Sunday School Christmas program. "Go Tell It on the Mountain" and "Once in Royal David's City." I also love: Silent Night; O Holy Night; O Come, O Come Emmanuel; O Come, All Ye Faithful...too many to list! Any Christmas song that praises Jesus is one I want to listen to. Also, more recent ones- Somewhere in Your Silent Night (Casting Crowns), and Strange Way to Save the World; In Your Care (4Him)
  4. Look at how happy she looks! And they are helping her clean! I bet everyone wants a family of mice in their house now!
  5. That reminded me of the movie Facing the Giants. This thread makes of think of someone I lived near for a brief period of time during my childhood. He ended up playing for the NFL for a brief period of time, and even played in the Super Bowl. He used their advance to the Super Bowl and his social media to praise God and give Him all the glory. Someone like him might pray for a team to win in the hopes that in the end God can be glorified in some way. Maybe it depends on why a person is asking for the win? Is it to glorify themselves, or somehow to use a platform to glorify God? I know this specific individual would have tried to find a way to praise God either way.
  6. Hi Newsie, It's always good to want to learn new things, but I will be honest and say there are things I have learned and seen that I wish I had not. I would suggest, like others have already in this thread, to be strong in your faith before moving on to studying other religions. Have you read your Bible the entire way through? Multiple times? Do you have a support system of believers that surround you in your life? If yes, then consider it. Most individuals are forced into studying specific topics in school, so it's nice to have a choice. Just my 2 cents.
  7. Well, at least he died for a cause? P.S. What do you mean weirdos?
  8. Welcome Michelleblue! It is great to have you here
  9. Yes, you should definitely tell them not to pray for the Bears….and instead ask them to pray for the Packers! Kidding I pay attention to sports, but personally, I do not pray for teams (I will ask people to root for my team). Whenever the Packers won the Super Bowl, people in Wisconsin said “God was watching over them.” Years ago, there were some great men of faith on teams who immediately knelt after scoring and talked about their faith in pretty much all of their interviews. They publicly gave God the glory for every point and win. Don’t know if that still occurs…now it’s about kneeling for a different reason. I say if people want to pray for their favorite teams, it’s up to them. But, they also need to remember that God blesses who He chooses to bless and move on if they don't win.
