Christian mom ~Sept~

Welcome to Sept.

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a rousing cry, with a call from one of the ruling angels, and with God's shofar, those who died united with Messiah will be first to raise; then we who are left still alive will be caught up them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and thus we will always be with the Lord. So encourage each other with these words.

1 Thessalonians 4: 16-18

Welcome September 2014. Each day we are blessed with grace to sustain us. Thought I will add this post.

GOD DESIGNED IT SO THAT OUR GREATEST JOY IS CLOSENESS TO HIM
God designed the world so that our greatest joy is closeness to Him. No matter what you seek in life, no matter how much money you have, no matter your luxury, you'll never get greater pleasure than simply lifting your heart to Him.
Think about that: the basic act of worship is the source of highest gladness. And it's free! When we seek God -- when we love Him, when we adore Him -- He draws us above all physical circumstances.
No matter what you may be going through (pain, depression, worries), if you praise God He will bring you to joy.
That's because praise brings us close to Him, and there is no joy like the joy of knowing the Lord. He sends graces that can completely defy our circumstances. He brings joy where, by the standards of the world, there should be depression. There are those in poverty. There are those who are lonely. There are those with cancer. In God they find happiness.
The opposite is true of those who ignore God and thus set themselves at a distance. Take a look around and you'll see many of the rich with grim looks. No matter what they accomplish on earth, if they don't have a closeness to God, they never find true gladness. Meanwhile those who love the Lord have the glow of well-being.
To draw close we must love Him and seek to do His will, to be what he planned for us to be. We must seek Him in everything. Then comes a joy that's indescribable. You can buy a yacht or a Mercedes -- you can marry well, you can be the most powerful person on earth -- but if you don't have God you have not experienced true happiness. You have missed out on that transcendental elation -- that ineffable joy that put a smile on the faces of so many saints who to the world seemed poverty-stricken. Remember that smile on the face of Mother Teresa!
When we pray, we draw close to God, and He grants us feelings that can not be attained elsewhere. God is joy and when you draw nearer to Him you draw nearer to joy. It's that simple. There's nothing you can do that will bring as much happiness. And closeness comes through praise. Adore God through the day. Do it from the heart. Love Him. Praise Him over and over -- ten times, a hundred times. Praise You Jesus, praise You Christ.
That's what will bring you joy because the Lord is joy personified.

Amen!
DH always says that worship is the ONLY thing that we can give to the Lord that he didn't give us first. We can offer time, money, even dedicate our children, but He already gave those to us.

September already! I can't believe it

I love that you posted this verse, Naz!! Because this month contains Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashanah, and it's so fitting.

To answer your question from last month, we do attend a Hebrew Roots congregation in the Dallas area called Beit Yashua. Have you heard of the Hebraic Roots Network (online HR TV channel)? The vice president, Ed Harris, is our pastor.

I've got a question about something you posted in last month's thread, Naz... one of the things you mentioned leaving a church over was Creationism. Is that something other than believing all things were created by a creator?

Quick quick...5yr old is OK. Thanks for praying. It has been a very long day!!!

Creationism is the whole "young earth" thing. If you don't believe that the earth is 6,000 years old & Genesis is the foundation of the bible you are WRONG! Ken Ham - Answers in Genesis - has it's place. But it is not everything. Jesus is above all. The Gospel is the foundation.

Oh, I went to Beth Israel with Johnathan Cahn. I will look up Hebraic Roots Network.

Glad to hear your 5 year old is ok!
I had the same question on the creationism but wasn't going to bring it up.
I believe every single word in The Word, but things like young earth are speculations and not make it or break it for salvation. It can be entertaining to discuss and hear others opinions, but if it gets too heated, what's the point? If its not essential then its okay to agree to disagree IMO.

About creationism- To much of the focus is on science. Yes, some people have questions about that stuff. Answer in Genesis/ Ken Ham can be very helpful in answering those questions. But it does not go past that.

It's funny you mention about the Gospel being the foundation... I'm trying to work my way through a DEEP Bible study series called The Creation Gospel by Dr. Hollisa Alewine. It's hard because there is so.much. So much depth it's mind-blowing. She lines up the 7 days of creation with the 7 spirits of God, the 7 biblical holy days, etc. It's like whoa. But with a new 9 month old, the study has fallen to the side for now. Study in general is not out the window, just big heavy ones. haha

Happy Friday

And this is my prayer: that your love may more and more overflow in fullness of knowledge and depth of discernment, so that you will be able to determine what is best and thus be pure and without blame for the Day of the Messiah, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Yeshua the Messiah --- to the glory and praise of God.

My husband may be completely done with outpatient next Friday (and presumably begin working just part time after that) so then our normal will change yet again. Trying to remain calm and just trust. That is so dang hard sometimes.
