  1. HELLO! My name is Matt Downey and I am new here. I am from Columbus, Ohio and I love God ever since I was a little boy. I am a true Christian and have suffered through many hard trials and tribulations including homelessness, hunger, fasting, sleeplessness, beatings, travels, witnessing, closeness to God, separation from God, spiritual victories and spiritual failures. I guess I have grown to the place where I sort of just want to get back into the ministry of believer to believer strength and courage, because I spent most of my childhood healing and casting out devils. Then I met God and He told me to have some fun, so I ended up retiring and settling in at everything was about Me and nobody else really mattered anymore. But as time has progressed, I have decided that I would like to get back into common ministry and help strengthen and encourage individuals in the Body of Christ to never give up on the highest blessings and to always go forth in God. So that is a little about me. More is that I love web design, travel, spirituality including godliness and angelic hosting, Spirit travels through fasting and prayer, sleeping in, music, praise and worship, church, and pets. I love a lot of other things like art and museums too, but it's too much to list. I have a great family and I look forward to being a part of the online community here. Well, thanks! Matty
  2. Please, out of grace, pray for me again. I haven't been on this site much lately because I've been so busy, but I could really use some prayers about God's will for what I decide about job opportunities that I've been presented with: whether or not to take the jobs. I also need prayer about how to honor God and please Him in my dealings with the people for whom I currently work, as these employment positions are coming to the end of their terms. I would like to leave these positions and relationships in ways that glorify God. Thank you so much for your gracious prayers.
  3. In this article: https://peacefulwife.com/2014/10/06/what-is-godly-femininity/ I found a great list of qualities to aspire to. April Cassidy, in my opinion, hits the nail on the head. Here is a highlight: " She takes responsibility for running her household well. (Proverbs 31, Titus 2:3) She is prudent and has godly wisdom. (Proverbs 19:14) She is modest and humble in her dress, words and behavior. (I Timothy 2:9-10, Ephesians 4:29-30) She does not depend on charm or external beauty. (Proverbs 31:30) She fears the Lord in a healthy way and she fears Him much more than any circumstances or any person. (Proverbs 31:30) —– She dresses in a way that shows honor and respect for God, her husband, herself and others. She does not seek to draw attention to her body but to Christ. She does not wear extravagant clothing, hairstyles or jewelry but allows her good deeds to be her ornaments. She longs to not put any stumbling block in her brother’s way. (1 Timothy 2:9, Romans 14:13) She is generous to those in need within the parameters of her husband’s leadership. (Proverbs 31:20) She has great emotional/spiritual inner strength and honor. (Proverbs 31:25) She has God’s wisdom in her heart and mind, she cherishes His Words and she speaks with godly wisdom and kindness. (Proverbs 31:26) She is trustworthy in her thoughts, speech and actions. (Proverbs 31:11) —– She does “not repay evil for evil but overcomes evil with good.” She trusts God to take revenge if vengeance is needed, she doesn’t take vengeance into her own hands. (Romans 12:9-21) She answers softly and gently. (Proverbs 15:1) She is filled with God’s “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, goodness and self-control.” She is a pleasure to be around. She smiles and laughs easily. She savors and enjoys her family and her life (Galatians 5:22-23, Philippians 4:4-8) She has great faith in God. (Matthew 15:21-28) She is genuinely humble. She understands how great, wise and holy God is and how small she is in comparison. (I Corinthians 13:4) —– She is polite and well-mannered. (I Corinthians 13:5) She is selfless. (I Corinthians 13:5) She is vulnerable and able to share all of her entire range of emotions, needs, desires and ideas and articulate herself well. She knows her emotions are a great blessing and gift from God. She listens to them and evaluates her thoughts and motives as her emotions tell her about problems. But ultimately, she submits her feelings and emotions to Christ. (James 4:7, Proverbs 3:5) She knows how to appropriately express her emotions and she knows how to discern when her emotions are lying to her and not to be trusted (i.e.: PMS, pregnancy, peri-menopause). She cares about her husband and what he wants, needs and desires. (I Corinthians 7:34) She is careful to care even more about what God desires. (Matthew 6:33) —– She thinks on things that are good, true, noble, excellent, praiseworthy, pure, right and admirable. (Philippians 4:8) She takes her thoughts captive and does not allow unruly emotions or worry to hijack her mind or rob her of God’s peace. She, through God’s power, is in control of her own thoughts. Her feelings do not reign as tyrants over her. (2 Corinthians 10:5, Philippians 4:4-8) She does not argue or complain but shines brightly for Christ in her attitude. (Philippians 2:14-16) She shares her heart and her ideas, needs and feelings without being contentious or disrespectful – but always speaks respectfully, gently, graciously and humbly. (I Corinthians 13:4-8) She is full of grace, forgiveness and mercy because she abides in Christ and has experienced these things in abundance from Jesus. (John 15) —– She never gives up on God, her husband or the marriage covenant. She keeps her word and her promises. (Matthew 19, I Corinthians 13:7-8) She keeps no record of wrongs she has suffered. (I Corinthians 13:5 – for any wives who are truly being abused, please seek godly, biblical, experienced, wise help. “Do I Condone Marital Rape or Abuse?”) She rejoices continually in God and in His truth. (Philippians 4:4, I Corinthians 13:6) She hates all sin and evil. (I Corinthians 13:6) She tears out any trace of the smallest root of bitterness as soon as possible and doesn’t let it fester. (Ephesians 4:31) —– She is sober – not addicted to drugs or alcohol. (Titus 3:2) She uses her words to give life and does not use her words to tear down or destroy. She does not gossip or slander anyone. (Proverbs 18:21, 2 Corinthians 12:20) She is chaste – she does not entertain immoral or lustful ideas about real or fictional men (or women), she does not flirt with other men, she guards her marriage and her heart, she does not touch other men in a sensual way, she does not get involved in any trace of adultery, fornication or immorality. If she sees that there is a temptation coming, she flees from it. She does not want to create even the appearance of evil. (I Corinthians 6:18, Proverbs 4:23, I Thessalonians 5:22) She is reverent and respectful in her behavior at home and in public. (Titus 2:2) She does not allow happiness, her dreams, her desires or romance to become more important to her than Christ, her obedience to Christ, her husband or her marriage. She has proper priorities. She enjoys happiness when it comes, and romance when her husband offers it to her – but she is not consumed by a desperate desire for these things. Her only desperate desire is Christ. (Titus 2:3-5) —– She teaches her children and other women good things. (Titus 2:3) She loves her husband and children affectionately. (Titus 2:3) She is sound and solid in her faith. She knows the Word and handles it well. (Titus 2:2, Ephesians 6, 2 Timothy 2:16) She guards her heart, because it is the wellspring of her life. (Proverbs 4:23) She is willing to forsake all others (family, friends, past boyfriends, etc) and leave them in order to cleave to her husband (Genesis 2:24) and she realizes in the same way that she must forsake all others in order to cleave to Christ as her Savior and only Lord." I have enjoyed this post. I have limited Godly examples of women to really model after so articles like this really help me. I have not always been the best example but by the grace of God, I see more of these qualities in my life. I am not sure how to tell if I have that "quiet, gentle spirit." But I do know I enjoy teaching other women about God.
  4. Why do we think these phrases are passages in the Bible? One reason is people haven’t read or don’t actually know what is in the Bible. Another reason is sometimes we use what we perceive as Biblical truth to reinforce own pre-existing beliefs or what has been taught to us. Yet some of these phrases do at times reflect Biblical truth or concepts. Sometimes, however the phrases are a result of folk wisdom or cultural use of the terms. -------- #6. Is "Cleanliness is next to godliness." in the Bible? If so, what is the passage or similar phrases used in the Bible? If not, where does it originate from?
