"Truth"ful Tuesday!!!

 I have two "truth"s I want to share this week.

The first one I heard on a radio broadcast by Dr. David Jeremiah.

Confrontation brings change.  
We get changed  by being confronted with the truth of what God says.
If you do what He says, He will take care of you.
How many of you, this year, have seen God take care of you?
I'm not just talking about in usual ways.
God takes care of His own.
He provides for you.
He protects you.
He cares for you.
If you trust Him for eternity, why not trust Him for next week?

 As we're reading the Bible thru in chronological order, our pastor is bringing a message each week about something we've read.  This past week was about Job and SONday morning's message was AWESOME!  
I could barely keep up taking notes.
This was part of Pastor Bruce's message....
....and oh, how it spoke directly to my heart of hearts!!!

Some people go into the furnace of affliction and it burns them.  
Others go into it and it purifies them.
What makes the difference?
Attitude toward the word of God and the will of God.
If we are nourished by the Word and submit to His Will, the furnace experience, painful as it may be, will refine and make us better.  But....if we resist God's will and fail to feed on His truth, the furnace experience will only burn us and make us bitter!!!


Will I ever be able to speak the words of Job with complete "truth"?!?


Job 23:11-12
For I have stayed on God’s paths; 
      I have followed his ways and not turned aside. 
   I have not departed from his commands, 
      but have treasured his words more than daily food.

'Till next Tuesday, Sweet Reader!!!
Hope your word is popping up and you are keeping it close to your heart as we journey thru 2012!!!

In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  3. Oh, this is gooooooood! Yes, trusting God with eternity and today and tomorrow and next week. I needed to hear this today. God has been speaking to me about being obedient in praising him no matter the circumstances....the sacrifice of praise...as Jonah speaks about and what we read in Hebrews 13. There are truths to be heard and today I thank you for sharing your truths about God with us...

Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
