It’s in the past, God’s forgiven it…

11james

We hope you enjoy this excerpt from Walking in God’s Grace…

It’s in the past, God’s forgiven it, so I can move on without talking or dealing with anyone else, right?

The answer to that question depends. If what we have done wrong is a personal issue, then it is between God and us. Once we have confessed and accepted God’s forgiveness then it is indeed in the past.

Now, habitual sin is another issue. Habitual sins are ones we keep doing and will continue to do, unless we get help. We should seek counsel for and wisdom in how to overcome and deal with them.

Trust

love-826934_1280By Pat Thacker

Trusting in God during times of stress, heartache and loneliness.Trying times brings a lot of things to the surface that’s for sure.

I read a blog today about the Potter & the Clay,and the writer brought out a lot of good points like,God is in control of even the small things we take for granted. God turns up the heat to get rid of baggage  we really don’t need. And I tell you it works!

Only God can bring good out of a bad, sad, ugly situation. It’s truly amazing how God does things, truly it is ashes into beauty .

What We Believe – About The Bible

love-699480_640

We believe the Bible (Scripture) as found in 66 books, considered the “Canon” of scripture, is the revealed Word of God. Several things determine such books, among them being is it authoritative and/or is it prophetic. This is determined by either having the authority of a spiritual leader of Israel and/or an apostle of the church.

Such books must be consistent with each other in revealing truth, being dynamic and received by the early church. We believe God inspired these books, as the Holy Spirit moved men. This inspiration is true and equal to all parts as contained within the original manuscripts, and as a result, they contain no error.

Finding My Way

finnmark-960737_1280By Kimm Crandall

It’s been a few months since I have sat in a church. The two times I have shown up were to rock the babies, change the diapers, and wipe little noses so that the moms and dads could sing the hymns and hear the word, but I have not warmed a seat myself. This has been a choice. I’ve pulled away for many reasons that I cannot write about. Reasons that don’t have much to do with God or anything else that can be talked about here. This is the longest I’ve been away. I want to be there. I just don’t know how.

I rocked another baby this Sunday. Tears rolled down her apple cheeks as she called for “Mama”. I sat and rocked and held her bottle to her quivering lips even though she could hold it for herself. It felt good to help. It is holy work when we comfort. And as I heard the faint sound of hymns filling the rented high school theater on the other side of the cinderblock wall, I myself wanted to whimper…

Jesus Rejoiced

clouds-843201_640by Wendy Alsup

 
Other than posts on refugees and political fear, most of my posts the last few months have come from my Bible reading in the book of Luke. I have been working slowly through various books of the Bible since picking up a New Testament with Psalms at a sale at a Christian bookstore that was going out of business in 2011.
 
I’m using that New Testament almost like a journaling Bible to chronicle my path through the New Testament. I should have long since made my way through it, but I only have one or two days a week where I can sit in it like I want, not so much studying it (I study the Bible all the time) but truly meditating on it—ruminating on it. I like to do this on my porch swing in the mornings, overlooking the pond on our farm…
 
 

My Mom

blogby Jessica Dixon

 

Proverbs 31:28  Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her—

I hear allot of people say how wonderful their mom is but let me take a moment and say how wonderful mine is. To start off, my mom was never even supposed to be a mother from a man’s point of view, but God had a different plan! He blessed her with myself when she first got married to my dad.  Then 9 years later my sister came along. She has always said God has a sense of humor…lol.
 
 

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
