Becoming Who You Were Meant To Be

One day, a boy climbing in the mountains found an Eagle’s nest with an egg in it. When he got home, he put it under a hen along with her other eggs.

Chickens 4When the Eagle hatched, he thought he was a Chicken. He learned Chicken behaviour and scratched in the Chicken yard with his ‘siblings’, he didn’t know any better.

Sometimes he felt strange stirrings within himself, but he didn’t know what to do with them, so he ignored or suppressed them.

After all, if he was a Chicken, he should behave like a Chicken.

One day, an Eagle flew over the Chicken yard and the Eagle looked up and saw him. In that moment, he realized he wanted to be like that Eagle, to fly high, to go to the mountain peaks he saw in the distance. As he spread his wings, he suddenly understood that he was like that Eagle…

Though he’d never flown before and there was no mother Eagle to help, he still possessed the instinct and capabilities.
At first he flew unsteadily, then with greater power and control.

Finally, as he soared, he became the creature that God had made him to be.

‘When we realize in our hearts we have been leading only half a life, the other half is going to reach out to us until we seek the Lord to empower us to Live it.

We were made by God and for God.

Until we understand what He has planed for us and what He has equipped us for we will not feel fulfilled or complete.

God wants our Love and Friendship without Him in our life it is without real meaning or purpose.

It’s only in Jesus Christ that we discover our purpose and our calling.

Isaiah 40: 31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (KJV)

 

.

Music – Eagles Wings
Here I am waiting.Abide in me I pray.
Here I am longing.For You
Hide me in your Love Bring me to my knees
May I know Jesus More and more
Chorus
Come live in me all my life Take over
Come breathe in me I will Rise on Eagles wings
Words and Music By Rruben Morgan

God Bless you greatly for your Support and Encouragement

Christian Love from both of us – Anne.

My comfy old pink Slippers…..

old SlippersI really feel comfortable in my old pink slippers, they have been worn in really well, it doesn’t matter that they are a bit dirty and that there is a few holes in them, because when someone else is around I put my new ones on…..

New Slippers I’m sure they wouldn’t appreciate my old slippers the way I do, to be honest, some say they are Yuk!

I was like this with my old sin Nature, I felt really comfortable with it, of course at times I felt guilt for the wrong I was doing and even asked forgiveness, trying real hard to do what I knew was good but sooner or later I would slip back into my old ways and continue to do what I had asked forgiveness for, after all it was easier than trying to do what was expected of me all the time, it was such a battle!

Yes I wanted to do what was right but I found it just too hard and after awhile I didn’t notice the wrong I was doing as much, it became comfortable like my old pink slippers, I made excuses, minimized my sin, even lied about it and so I continued to hurt God, others and myself, until one day I fell apart and having no support or so I thought, I decided I was not wanted or needed anymore, who could Love someone as Yuk as I was, I’m sure God couldn’t, you can read on the Link below how I was rescued by our Loving Good Shepherd .

Rescued http://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2013/05/25/jesus-rescued-his-lost-sheep/

Does this all sound familiar, yes Paul had a similar battle with his Carnal flesh which he shares about in Romans 7 (see below)

Today I’m going to share God’s Truth with you by sharing mostly Scripture which is God’s inspired word,  it’s not fleshy Man’s understanding that is often shared by those who teach error sometimes knowingly, sometimes not, so please take the time to read the Scriptures, there are others  but let Jesus convict you through these that He has set you free from the Slavery of sin but first let’s look at how Paul overcome.

Romans 7 :14-23 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am Carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.(K.J.V)

Jesus 07But Paul knew the answer to have Victory in his battle, he knew someone really cared and would help him to put to death his old Carnal Sin Nature once and for all.

Romans 7: 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Paul shared with us the need to put our Carnal flesh to death much more than once in his letters and so did others (see below) it is something we must all do, so we can be like Jesus in this world.

Romans 8:12 -15 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

Colossians 3:1-17 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.

2 Corinthians 7: 1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Galatians 24 -26 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. if we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Ephesians 4:23-24 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Jesus Set us FreeWhat is so wonderful is Jesus has set us free from the Slavery of our Carnal sin Nature so we can put it to death and Aim to be perfected in Love and not continue to sin,  when we are Born again we have God’s seed, His Spirit and having His Nature means we can’t sin, Jesus lives in us and He does not sin.

John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who Sins is a slave to Sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

1John 3 : 9 No one who is Born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he Cannot go on sinning, because he has been Born of God.

1John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God sins; but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.

Romans 6:22-23 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto Holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is Eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

Romans 8:1-4 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

1 John 3: 1-11 ( 6-7 ) Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.

1 Peter 1:21-23 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the Truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned Love of the brethren, see that ye Love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being Born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

2 Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace; and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.

HELP! 3rd Update on God’s Gateway……

Gateway 1Wow no wonder I’m Computer illiterate, there is so much confusion out there concerning the Internet and it’s tools, even with the professionals,  how can I know what is Truth or error when I’m told different things and they really all believe they are right but how can they all be when what they are saying  is different???

After once again sharing with you  in my 2nd update (see below) that I had been assured all was well by my previous Provider, this morning after talking to Wayne again who is a very competent Computer Technician, I’m back to where I started, he advised me that what I had been told by my previous Provider was impossible, yes my billing account might be closed but I’m still logged into their Internet service or I could not access the Internet with their Modem. I was on the phone most of yesterday trying to sort this mess out so now all I can say is ……..

Help, what do I do now ! just accept the Modem  as God’s Gateway and be thankful that I can keep in contact with all of you or do I seek further to have the Issue resolved? Is there any Scripture reference in regards to Modems ? if you know one please share it with me ….. Wait! I found it, Don’t worry God knows everything and He will lead us  into all Truth!

Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops KJV  ( perhaps our Computers?)

Blessings – Anne

 

2nd Update…..

ModemAfter sharing with you all about my Modem earlier to day, I talked to my previous Provider, they assured my that my Account was closed and advised me that sometimes but not often, Modems will connect with a new Provider, they also told me to keep the old Modem as a back up in case it is needed and the Provider I have now agreed too. 

God’s provision and Gateways are unlimited , how very blessed we all are to have Him as our Loving Abba Father.

First Update…..

Modem

After sharing with you all about my crashed Modem (see below) and how no one knew how I was able to Post with an old Modem from a previous Provider, Wayne my Computer Technician worked it out and yes as he said in was a chance in a million of my being able to connect and Post.

Wayne said it seems that my previous Provider  did not cancel my Account and so it is still active,  this means I have Web access and my Supplier who I have now have gives me email access.

I  give heartfelt thanks for  the Gateway God provided and feel very blessed as  I was able to reassure a friend in need and also correct someone who is in great Theological error and to let you all  know too why I won’t be Blogging till I receive my new Modem,  I will now contact the Provider and tell them of their oversight.

Gateway 1So till I’m in contact with you all again, keep looking for God’s Gateways when you feel like giving up!

Original Post …..

ModemWith being Computer illiterate I would really appreciate if  someone can help me understand how I’m Posting today, it’s impossible as told to me by my Internet Supplier the TIO and also Wayne my Computer Technician.

My Modem died and  when I phoned my Provider they asked me for a new Password and than we reset the Modem, taking it back to factory settings first and disconnecting the wireless again but it still would not work, they told me they would send me a new Modem in 3 to 7 working days, they advised it would have to be reset with my new password before I could use it.

I thought of Blogging on a Computer at the Library as I have done before but decided to just wait although I did pray that the new Modem would come within a few days, I felt at peace although still a bit disappointed I couldn’t keep in touch with you and respond to your comments and Posts.

Later as I was sorting through some old Computer accessories I  found an old Modem I had used with another Provider, it was about 2 years old, I put it aside and finished my work.

I decided to do some filing since I now had plenty of time but I noticed the old modem and wondered if the lights would come on, they not only came on but I was able to download all my notifications from WordPress and e-mails from friends.

I phoned my Provider but they couldn’t explain how I could use it without it being reset and because it was also locked, nor could the TIO whom I phoned thinking my security was at risk or Wayne my Computer Technician, but even if you are able to explain how I’m able to Post this,  it still looks like once again God has provided a Gateway so we can keep in touch, which I will be doing later today seeking to catch up with your Posts and comments.

Christian Love Always in our Unity in Christ Jesus – Anne.

Update on Plagiarism and Copyright

Plagiarism and CopyrightDo people get too Shook up in regards to Plagiarism and Copyright…

Below this update * is a message we Posted previously about Plagiarism and Copyright the reason we have updated it now is because we have found with Christian Blogging that there is some confusion as to what it really means. We both believe strongly, that God’s Truth should be shared freely without worldly restriction and it is something that I also shared from the start of our Blog in September 2011 as shown in our About.

Ron affirms that there is no problem using what others have said in their messages or Devotionals as God uses all good things to strengthen and encourage the brotherhood of believers. Feel free to use the messages on our Posts to uplift and bless others, you will find there are many Authors including us.

Pastors and those who write Devotionals often share their messages without Copyright or the need to acknowledge their Authorship and this is because they believe like we all need to, that what they share is inspired by God and so those who share it are sharing His Truth not their own, it’s not about their glory but God’s. If what they share is in error it will be shown to be by the confirmation of Scripture not by man’s own fleshy understanding.

If we have doubts about who is the Author of what we share in reference to God’s Truth , than we should not be sharing our fleshy thoughts with others and when we do share we must always have the Confirmation of Scripture if asked, yes God gives us creativity in how we share but we share His Truth not the worlds.

Personally we think it is wonderful that Christian Pastors and Devotional writers share their God given heart thoughts with each other, with having different Congregations it means many more are uplifted and encouraged.

We can see great similarities in the Gospels, this is because they have the same focus and yet we also see their individuality too. Paul also shared many Truths from the Gospels as Jesus did with the Old Testament, this is why not just some parts of the Scriptures but all of them are inspired by God as we see in the Scripture below and this includes all Paul’s letters too.

2 Timothy 3:14- 17 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto Salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. ALL SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. (KJV)

.

.*Previous Post on Plagiarism and Copyright……

.

PlagiarismAre you in a Twirl in regards to Plagiarism/Copyright

.

.What is Plagiarism… Going by some people’s understanding, if we share or even e-mail a message or story or a saying, poem or verse or idea if it does not give a reference to who wrote it, we will be committing plagiarism even if we don’t claim we are the Author, this is not correct, it’s not just because someone thinks we have plagiarized, we need to have signed it with our name or claimed in some way that it is ours and if we have done this and it is also Copyrighted, we may be fined if taken to court and found guilty but many are not Copyrighted and so can be used freely.

We can’t answer for others, but we never claim unless they are that the Stories messages, poems, ideas we Post are ours and we correct those who think they are, this is also stated clearly in our About. But we don’t always mention when they are own compositions, so that they can be used freely without the need to contact us and this is why we don’t Copyright anything, we Trust God, we also don’t receive personal gain financially and we believe like everyone else we are answerable to God in what we share. But some do use what they earn to reinvest so they have the resources to spread the Gospel further as Paul did this with his tent-making.

We do correct error and rebuke or warn those who sin without repentance according to God’s word but not by our own fleshy understanding or others, we do so in accordance to God’s guidelines in the Scriptures and in Love and for Love but that is not Saccharin sweet worldly love, if needed we will get the whip out like Jesus did, not literally but we will be firm and to the point.

What happens when a Christian shares without citing the Christian who wrote it breaking Copyright , does that Christian then take them to court even though God tells us not to do this but that we are to privately resolve our differences and forgive others or should we as Christians who claim what we write is inspired by God not freely share but instead do as the worldly dictate, but then we do realize sometimes it’s needed to publish.

Thankfully some Copyright does not apply if what is used is not for financial gain but the material must not be claimed as our own or that is Plagiarism, as Christians we need to obey the rules of the land if they do not conflict with God’s guidelines.

Does God give us Scripture in reference to Plagiarism/ Copyright ? some claim Revelation 22:18-19 is talking about this but God was referring to changes being made to deceive, do we share messages to deceive others like false teachers or do we confirm everything with Scripture or do we Trust in our own understanding, logic, wisdom and reasoning or someone else’s, do we ask for God’s wisdom and seek Jesus Christ our only Teacher through the empowering of The Holy Spirit to teach us all things and do we have the mind of Christ and know what He knows. 1 Corinthians 2: 9-16

On this Blog ( see our About ) we have shared many stories collected over the years through e-mails there was no reference on most to where they originated but if there was we used it, we are still looking for some.

Because Checking on the Internet was very time-consuming and many times proved fruitless, it showed that some of the stories had also been used by others, and quiet a few times by different people but they too mostly had no reference as to who originally wrote them and some cited different Authors for the same message or Story . So can all these Christian men and woman be accused of having broken Copyright in their sharing Jesus Christ with others, if we go by the rules of the land and they were copyrighted by others, yes they can with some Copyright laws but not with all. What does God say….

Mathew 10: 7-8 And as ye go, preach, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

So is God telling us that we can’t earn an income from sharing the Gospel, no we have that freedom just as Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 9

We really believe what we have shared is God’s inspiration and not just our own understanding so we need to be willing to share it freely as it was given to us, this is what God asks us to do with all the gifts He has given us, we each make our own choices.

The world tells us we are to seek after recognition and financial gain, we are not saying these are prohibited but for many it is their only focus… God tells us as Christians they must not be our focus. Yes we are to encourage and uplift others but not to glorify ourselves or make money our god.

We can’t answer for anyone else but for us we now choose as Paul did a greater reward by not seeking to gain financially for ourselves or to seek for personal fame and glory from sharing God’s Truth and we trust God to provide for our needs, God’s work done in God’s way never lacks God’s supply.

Christian Love in our Unity in Christ Jesus – Anne.
