About Freedomborn

anne-1 Thank you for visiting Freedomborn,  I’m a Spiritual Child of The King of Kings and Lord of Lords, my name is Anne but some of my friends call me Annie and it is also my Pen name for Poetry, Stories and Humour. Both names come from the Hebrew name Hannah and mean Grace. Children often call me Grannie Annie which I Love and use too with Blogging and I also use Freedom which is a Pen Name and recently a Blogging friend called me Annie Mum, Wow what’s in a Name!

I live in Queensland Australia, I’m very much a People person believing we are all people of worth and unique, so I have much Joy in sharing with people personally and over the Internet.

My Pets have always been very much part of my life even as a Child and I enjoy spending time with them and for sure I spoil them. The M and M’s Stories are on links below.

look-a-like-mo-joe Mo – Joe is a very intelligent dog and yes he thinks he is boss, I hope he doesn’t mind my telling you that? he is very friendly and good company, his link is below.

micky-5  Micky Moo, is also a very intelligent dog and loves to play ball, yes non stop if given the chance but Micky Moo has been badly abused and seeks to protect himself if he thinks he is in danger but he is overcoming his fear now and we are good friends and he seems to Trust me although he is still very protective at times, his link is below.

About Me…..

My main focus in life is my wonderful Friendship with Jesus Christ, without Him all else would be meaningless. He is my best Friend and never lets me down and I have deep heartfelt appreciation that I’m a Spiritual Child of The KING of Kings and LORD of Lords, part of His Church, The Bride and The Body of Christ and I seek to share with others how truly wonderful that is with the hope they too will realise the same and will know His Melody in their heart.

Most of the Stories that are posted on my Blog I have collected over many years some have been adapted, or a Christian message added, If you find one of your own Stories here that you have written and sent out on the Internet, I hope you will feel blessed that others are also enjoying your God given creativity and Praising God because of it.

As for my own Original Poems, Stories, words of Love, Hope, Joy and Encouragement, please also feel free to bless others with them if they are changed negatively then they are no longer mine and if you wish to claim them as your own, accept them as a gift but  remember they were given freely and are part of Jesus’ melody in my heart.

Please remember I’m an Aussie and our spelling is different with some words, like Saviour, Humour, Realise etc.

I believe very much in freely we have received freely we give which means what The Lord has given me is to be shared freely and this includes all of God’s Truth including the wonderful gift of Salvation in Christ Jesus who has set us free …

You are indeed a blessing to me and I give thanks for all of you who visit. I also give thanks for my Brothers and Sisters in The Lord, we are Christ’s Body, His Church and His Bride to reach out to others in His Awesome Name.

This is the link for my Woman’s Blog which I hope to continue in the near future there is some wonderful Stories focusing on God’s Truth to enjoy and True life happenings too – https://alifeofhopeandjoy.wordpress.com/

This is the link for my Christmas Blog- which also shares God’s Truth in regards to Christmas and in uplifting Stories too. http://christmasblessings.wordpress.com/

Please feel free to share your own thoughts and feelings in Comments and if you have any personal or Theological concerns that are troubling you and you would like to share about in private or if you have something on your mind that just has to be expressed please leave your contact details and I will be in touch.

If you have a prayer need or just want to share any concerns or have questions, please feel free to express them  and ask them too but I do not accept free advertising on my Blogs.

Thank you  and God bless you all greatly … Mo Joe and Micky Moo waged their tails as a Thank you too!

    • Thank you Barton for visiting and yes Aussie is beautiful but than so is your Country, God doesn’t make junk even if Man makes it that way.

      Thank you for joining up with Freedomborn I hope you will be blessed by it’s focus.

      I noticed Barton that you do not reply to Comments on your Blog, to me and I’m sure to others, Blogging is a Conversation not just a one-sided Monolog , it’s not just about what we want to say but what others want to share too and when they do they need to be responded to not just ignored. They are not reading one of your books they are Blogging and if you are Posting your Blogging too.

      Many Blessings – Anne.

    • Thank you for your Kind Encouragement Cavelle, I’m pleased you liked my furry friends, I just want to share that In the short time we have known each other Cavelle I have come to appreciate your Heart focus which is very much God centered and I also value your Kind and Caring thoughts as shared in your Messages and responses, I can see there not just words to you, they are shown in your actions too as you seek to bring Praise and Glory to God.

      I have met many Bloggers over the years Cavelle some are indeed very Special, but yes some come and go too for different reasons. I miss those who no longer Blog but I haven’t forgot their input, I have been greatly blessed by what we have shared together.

      Of course there have been problems too as we are warned by Jesus there will be when we make a Stand against evil and share His Truth, there has been Abuse, Slander Backstabbing as well as Victimization and even Hacking but I move on, God always has the Victory.

      Thank you again Cavelle I look forward to sharing with you again – Anne.

  10. It is your choice Tricia if you want to reject God’s Truth in Scripture, although it’s very sad that you do but yes others have done the same and still do.

    As for my understanding of Scripture, with not being Born with it, I have asked God for His wisdom and received it and also His empowering by The Holy Spirit and I don’t doubt that I have received them, those who say I haven’t got them Tricia are also saying they can’t receive them either and that what God tells us in Scripture is a lie.

    Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get Wisdom and with all thy getting get Understanding

    James 1:5-6 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God that giveth to all liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given them. But let them ask in Faith, nothing wavering. For them that wavereth are like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

    But the Scripture I shared with you Tricia on your Blog that you deleted needs no interpretation (see below) it states very clearly that we do not continue to Sin when we are Born Again and are Perfected in Love, which we are all to aim for putting our Carnal flesh to death as confirmed in the Scriptures so we can walk as Jesus does (1John2:4-6) as He indwells us and Jesus never Sins, or do you think that He does Tricia ?

    1John 3: 1-11 ( 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. (KJV)

    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.
    (KJV)

    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. (KJV)

    1 John 2:4-6 He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His Commandments is a liar and the Truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word, in him verily is the Love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to Walk, even as He Walked.(KJV)

    Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no Condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit.(KJV)

    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.(KJV)

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

    Romans 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His Righteousness for the remission of Sins that are Past through the forbearance of God (KJV)

    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.(KJV)

    Romans 6 :1-2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in Sin, that Grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we that are dead to Sin live any longer therein? (KJV)

    Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life appears then you also will appear with Him in Glory. 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

    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.(KJV)

    Romans 3:30-31 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. Do we then make void the Law through Faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the Law.(KJV)

    2 Timothy 2:20-21 But in a great House there are not only vessels of gold and of silver but also of wood and of earth and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these he shall be a vessel unto honour sanctified and meet for the Master’s use and prepared unto every good work.(KJV)

    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. (KJV)

    Please share with me the Scriptures Tricia that confirm that we do go on Sinning when we are Born Again of God’s seed but this time in Context with the rest of the Scriptures, as we know Scripture confirms Scripture, The Old Testament with The New Testament and The New with the Old and both with themselves.

    I didn’t know where to post this, but I though you may be interested in this documentary:

    http://www.findingnoah.com

    Is called finding noah and is based on a research team (archeologist, engineers and biblical scholars) searching for Noah’s ark. I haven’t seen it yet but I heard an interview with one of the producer and it peeked my attention:

    The interview is here:

Thanks for the Links, I have checked out Finding Noah, it sounds like it will be very interesting, of course others have claimed they have found the Ark too but it doesn’t really matter if they do or don’t, we know it was a reality because God said it was in Scripture and He doesn’t lie or make up Stories, even Parables are based on Truth but He always tells us if it’s a Parable so we know.

      Did you find the Key in Genesis that shows Evolution is not a reality ? it’s surprising how many over look it.

          What I was referring to though was what I shared on your Blog as copied below…..

          Without my telling you what to look for Caleb first pray for God’s leading and than go through the 6 days of Creation as shown in Genesis, just one day at a time and see what was created on each day, than add your billions of years to each day the same as other Christians do who believe in Evolution and see what the result would have been. Read Job too and discover the animals God created that Job could see ? also what shape did God say the World was when they had no Space Rockets or Big Ships? and what did He tell us about D.N.A or than called flesh over 2 thousand years ago when they had no Pathology or any other Scientific way of knowing about it.

      One thing I would like to share with you Patty as well as a link that will explain further, I did not start this Blog with the intention that people would follow me exclusively or seek my Spiritual advice instead of Jesus’ when I Post a message I want others to go to Him not just believe me or what others say in opposition to what I share. Jesus tells us He is our only Teacher although as we know there are many false teachers or deceived ones and also disobedient teachers who confuse and deceive others too.

      This is why Jesus is our Authority first in all things and He confirms His Truth with the confirmation of Scripture not by amendments to it but He also uses Godly Logic, Reasoning and Discernment but they will also not contradict Scripture, instead they will reveal it’s Truth, unlike fleshy man or woman’s logic, reasoning and discernment which add error.

I thought you deserved it, as your blog was one of the first to come to mind when I got the nomination! I appreciate all the ways that you encourage me and others too. Have a blessed day!

        • Most Awards have rules Ufuoma, although I have created some without them but they are more like a Blessing. I did check on the rules of The Very Inspiring Blogger’ Award but like most of the other Awards they have been changed over time, this one originally asked for us to nominate 12 Bloggers than it was changed to 15 and some do much less which means they are not keeping to the rules.

          I found in the end Ufuoma after receiving one Award after the other even limiting them to receiving them once only, that I had no time to Post or encourage others when they Posted, so I just linked them and thanked those who gave them to us on their Blogs and on ours, although I did intend to Post them too like I did with the others but I do not believe in giving them to just anyone without personally knowing about them and their Blog, just so I can obey the rules because I’m than claiming something I don’t know about them and this is dishonest.

          Also a lot I was originally Blogging with no longer Blog or Blog under a new Identity which is not really showing integrity unless acknowledged, which some do and some don’t, others are new Bloggers who I want to get to know better depending on their responses to me too, I don’t accept one sided Blogging, it is a Conversation and we take an interest in each other and what interests us both in our Ministry for the Lord. I also found Reblogs, Pingbacks and Spotlighting Bloggers as well as creating Power points for them, much more productive in encouraging them because they are more personal but receiving Awards or not receiving them is a choice we all need to make.

          Thank you again Ufuoma for thinking about me, I believe you are a very Spirit filled woman so your Blog is very inspiring and based on Scripture, it is also not shallow like some are and if you let me I would be blessed to be able to thank you for your kindness in nominating me for this Award by creating a Power point for you sometime this year , you choose the Focus such as Children, Flowers, Animals, Sunsets etc and the theme Love, Joy, Hope or Peace etc please let me know if wanted and what you have chosen.

            I’d prefer a themed powerpoint about children, because I work with them, and peace, because that’s the meaning of my name! But no expectations or pressure.

            I hope you and Ron are doing well. God’s blessings always x

    • Thank you Caleb for thinking of us but we have already received this Award as you can see on our right sidebar. I’m pleased though you have now received it too, uplifting encouragement is good and something we can pass on with Awards etc. But like some other Bloggers I do this in different ways now by using Pingbacks, Reblogs and Power points but what ever way we choose to do so, it is good to encourage as long as we are genuine.

      I’m still waiting for you to choose a theme Caleb and focus for your Power point that you agreed would be good for me to create for you, to thank you for your support. I would appreciate you letting me know what they are as it takes a lot of time to collect the Pictures and find appropriate words, although often The Lord does give them to me to share when I’m creating or writing.

          But when someone who never comments on my Blog or doesn’t even leave a like and sometimes even ignores my comments on their Blogs, than tells me I’m great or my Blog is, it makes me wonder how genuine they are , when I give Awards you can be sure I know who I’m giving them to and why but as I shared I now prefer to encourage in different ways but I still agree with you, Blogging Awards do indeed have a place.

    • Hi Ada, it’s now Morning in Aussie Land and I just looked at your comment, so I will take the time to respond before duty calls “House work”.

      I never agree to disagree, God tells us not to do this it causes division, we are to resolve our differences through the confirmation of Scripture, His Truth, without arguing about man’s fleshy understanding of them but we are to still stand up for Him.

      There were no small particles such as; a, it, is, or etc in the original Manuscripts of the Bible, they were added later, God was still taking about graven Images in this Chapter , which means; cut into a desired shape. Pagans did and still do worship graven images and sadly so do some Christians today, they bow down to them and pray to them, Jesus is our only Intercessor.

      But we only have to look at the Symbols used in the Tabernacle, such as the Menorah and Pomegranate Images, God does not go against His written word and they are His thoughts, His convictions, so it is not wrong to have images or Pictures etc but it is wrong to worship them.

      All things good can be used for evil like the Computer, God gave man intelligence and gifting to Create or to invent as we call it today and yes the Computer is used for good but it is also used for evil. It’s all about our heart focus not the object, it is how we use it and what it means to us that can make it good or bad in God’s eyes.

      I have a picture of Jesus and a wooden cross but I do not worship them, they are just a reminder and with many this is the same.

      Most Artists see Jesus as beautiful because of His Love for Mankind and yes His heart is very beautiful but outwardly in the flesh of man, the Scriptures tell us He was not pleasant to look at and being a Jew He would have had short short black hair, we are not told He was not allowed to cut it like Samson. In the New Testament God’s guidlines for men are not to have long hair because of it’s feminine symbolism, the same as woman are to have a covering in Worship, which shows their submission but this is not in reference to hats, we are not to shave our heads.

      With us it’s our hearts focus that is important to God not what we look like on the outside, although we are to obey His guidelines in all things. Our Bodies are God’s Temple but this is referring to our heart, mind and soul, not the outer shell.

      Our Christian convictions must be confirmed in the Scriptures or Creation and not with our own understanding or they will be in error and cause division.

      I will be in touch soon Ada – Christian Love from both of us – Anne.

      • Ada says:

        Sister Anne, first I want to say that I do not mean to offend or say this out of anything but Christian love, etc. You are my sister in Christ, and I likewise. I do not want to hurt with words, yet you admonish me to speak. I thank you, again, for caring enough about God’s truth to do this.

        I still am convicted of the Scriptures I mentioned. I’m not going to pretend to have all the answers, because I don’t. I’m not going to say the following is my solid argument, but I bring up the time that David ate the shew-bread (it had been forbidden) and when Jesus forgave the adulteress. Perhaps it was to the glory of God, referring to the branches, etc., being made. There’s no other way that I, at this moment with my current knowledge of the Bible, could explain this.

        Exodus 20:3 to Exodus 20:5 (of course, I’ve mentioned Exodus 20:4 before) are similar to Deuteronomy 5:7-9, which says this: “Thou shalt have none other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God…” (Deuteronomy 5:7-9a).

        The point that I’m trying to make by this passage is that the Scriptures say do not make a graven image (or the “likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the water beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth.” I will come back to this.) and NEITHER are we to worship said graven image or put it before God. (Because, obviously, God is the only God to be worshipped- He is so mighty and wonderful.) In other words, the Scriptures say that making a “graven image” is wrong, and that “graven images” are also worshipped, which is very wrong (of course).

        I will admit that the interpretation of whether “graven images” are carved or just simply anything visual. In the other Scriptures talking about “graven images,” many of them use the words “molten” or “carved.” So what about photographs? Well, I believe that they’re molten (because it is made up of something tangible- ink).

        You said that our convictions must be confirmed in the Scriptures or in the Creation. I’m not exactly what you mean about Creation. However, I think about our “selfie-taking” society. More often than not, these people take photos to show off themselves. What else do I say?

        I don’t have any problem with photos of stuff like rocking chairs, shoes, or non-nature items. I’m not too comfortable with a camera, but I don’t see the Scriptures banning photos like that (unless, of course, you were to literally bow down and worship them or put them in priority before God).

        I do not take this lightly (I know you don’t either) and I hope that you don’t think I do. I struggled with accepting it (and still struggle to properly follow it). I prayed about it, and I knew it was wrong. I try my best to obey, even though it can be tempting to do so otherwise, because God has been so good to me and how can I just take His perfect Word lightly?

        I would be uncomfortable taking an unnecessary photo of myself, because I would feel very vain. There’s no reason for ME to do so. Other people don’t get that feeling, but I do…which is important as it says in Romans 14.

        And you are so right, that even “good” or “innocent” things can be used for evil. The computer is a good example. The phone is a good example. Music is a good example.

        I wrote this all in Godly love, and not to offend, create strife, or anything else, Sister. Please do not take it so.

        In Christ,

        Ada

        • You have not offended me Ada and it was not my wish to offend you but to resolve our differences, although now I feel we do agree on most of what we have both shared. Personally I honestly believe you are a beautiful, Loving Christian Woman, seeking God’s will with all your heart. And I agree with you as I shared, we are not to worship absolutely anything but God as The Father and Son, The Holy Spirit will motivate us to do this and we won’t have to make ourselves, we will want to.

          As I confirmed about the Scriptures you shared Ada, when read without the small Particles, God is talking about worshiping graven images of anything in His creation. Pictures are not graven but come through recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film.

          But yes anything as you said Ada can be used for idolatry and as you mentioned too if anyone worships themselves or others worship them, like Models or Movie and Singing Stars, the Queen , the Pope, the Virgin Mary, Saints, Popular T.V Evangelists or even Bloggers , if they are more important than God and so worshiped, than it’s Idolatry.

          Some people earnestly seek after worldly Popularity or even fleshy self – worth but as Christians we don’t have too seek after these things, God’s values us as people of worth already, Jesus died for us and we don’t have to earn His Love or pay for it.

          I will leave a link for you Ada about this Truth, the Post also has a video attached with a song that God used to touch my heart when I was an Atheist. God doesn’t need us, He is complete in The Godhead or Trinity as They are called today but He chooses to need us.

    I’ve responded to your comment but just in case here’s a shortened version (it got really long):
    By my interpretation of Exodus 20:4, I do not believe in making physical likenesses (whether carvings, photographs, drawings, etc.) of “natural elements” (like humans, animals, plants, the sky, etc.). I mention in an old post (probably not perfect but more in depth than what I’m writing now) that I’m not sure if there’d be instances like Drivers’ IDs or School IDs where (modest, serious) pictures might be OK. But definitely not when it is not required do I believe photos are ok. I mean no offense when I say this…it’s my belief and my conviction (Romans 14 says that it is a sin to go against a conviction).

          But I will say Ada in reference to Romans 14, our convictions must be based on God’s Truth not just on what we think or what others have told us.

          Exodus 20:4 when read in context is in reference to idolatry, for instance, it is alright to have Pictures, we even have them in our Computers, they interact with the programing, otherwise we would just be looking at a blank screen but we don’t do what the Pagans do which is to worship graven images as gods and they do this with animals and even Trees, which they carve and than adorn with their gold and silver but these are not Christmas Trees as some claim but hopefully people don’t bow down and worship them either. Pagans actions show they hate God and love the created things.

          There is more I can share Ada about Idolatry and also superstition, legends, folklore and old wives tales but I will do so when I Post about them to save detail here.

I have high respect for people like you who have stood their ground in raising God’s banner. Know that I am with you and Ron in spreading the good news of our Father in heaven and doing great things for His greater glory. I am though at the stage of returning back at the moment. I have been away to look for answers to questions that have pushed me away from loving Him completely. I’m finding it hard to regain how it was before, but I’m trying and praying. You will see this recurring motif in my blog posts. I’d like to believe that we have a God who loves us unconditionally, a Father who will take me for who I am and bless me and cleanse me from my unworthiness. I use to write about my faith here: http://tuningfork181984.blogspot.co.nz/. One day, I should be able to write for Him again. Thanks again. With lots of love, Jake.

    • Thank you Jack for your Loving reply , it would take a lot of detail to share how I fell into sin but like you not away , I never rejected Jesus, I will leave a link below for you.

      God never stops Loving us even if we get trapped in a worldly focus, which leads to fleshy actions and yes we have both done this and many others have too but like the Prodigal son we have both come to our senses and repented and Wow what a welcome home!

      Why don’t you feel it like you did before, your feeling guilty and Satan is making sure you do but you are forgiven Jack, you always were, now move forward , step out in faith and tell the world just how much you are Loved. Seek ask and knock and the door will be opened to your completeness, ask for The Holy Spirit and God’s wisdom and than you will know without a doubt, just how much you are Loved by God.

    • I spent some time on your Blog Jack, I would like to share a thought with you and ask your feelings about it.

      Your Loved one is very close to you but she starts to have questions that she wants answered , others have been saying things and now she has doubts about you and wants to be sure that your for real or if she is wasting her time. You Love her greatly and have all the answers she will ever need and you also know that she will be in danger if she leaves you but you can’t force her to stay, who wants a puppet but it hurts you to think that she will fly away to find her answers because it also means you will be separated and this will hurt you greatly and in the end do a lot of damage. Is it Love to let her go or is it Love to ask her to stay by your side.

      Blessings Anne.

      • It depends actually, but I would be honest to her, Anne! I would give her all the answers even if in turn she will hate me and will choose to leave me. Although probably not if it will only put her in so much danger.

        To love is to be honest.
        To love is also to let go
        and to allow the other person to grow
        and find herself in the greater scheme of things.
        It is my only hope that someday
        she will come back.
        For if she does,
        then we are truly meant for each other.

        I hope I’ve answered your question somehow.

        Blessings! 🙂

        • God never gives up on us Jack, He knows those who are His from Eternity and He holds on tight, He knows the danger we will be in without Him but if we choose our own fleshy way, He does not force us to stay but it hurts Him to see us suffer and some loose their direction and never find it again. When we fly away to build our own nest, we loose the security and comfort of God’s, we can’t fellowship with Him when we choose to sin.

          But God Loves us enough to reason with us to stay, as we see in the Scriptures, He sent Prophets to warn His people, He showed by creation His anger at the wrong they were doing, seeking to warn them not to continue but no one listened to Him and than with there being no other way, He sent Jesus and it caused Him great heartache to see His beloved Son suffer and to also be torn away from Him when Jesus took the penalty for our sins on the cross. We are wise to listen to Him and to His words in Scripture and in our heart.

          He tells us not to fly away, not to go into Satan’s Territory, like the Prodigal son did and so he was separated from his father and all his benefits, he lost everything including his feeling of self worth, he was willing to be just like his fathers servants, without any of his birth privileges.

          God wants to save us from this Jack, yes He will let us go and so we choose to experience His discipline, which is time out, if He didn’t Love us all would be good and we would feel no loss but He created us to experience loss and to suffer for the wrong we do, meaning we will reap what we sow and this was out of Love for us so we will come to our senses and when we do Wow what a welcome home! but only after our heart repentance, which means turning away from what He calls evil and seeking to do good by the empowering of The Holy Spirit.

          What cupboard we choose to come out of will count for Eternity, Satan’s might seem to offer lots of space to be ourselves but it has rusty nails that piece the heart and destroy all the goodness in the soul, God’s offers freedom to be all He created us to be, He offers us Eternal Hope, Joy, Peace and rest.

          God’s Love does not willingly let us fly away when it knows we are in danger, to do so is not True Love, it’s Saccharine sweet worldly platitudes that appeals to the flesh….Choose this day who you will serve.

          Christian Love from both of us – Anne.

    • Yes I have been trying to leave a comment A Servant and also responding to yours, on my last Post Wisdom, as you can see with your comments on it.

      WordPress must not be sending them through your e-mail or they are also being Blocked again. I noticed strange things when I commented on other Security risks Blogs too but WordPress don’t want to know.

      Please contact WordPress yourself A Servant and explain whats happening, they may listen to you.

      There could be another option though, since I have just changed Providers and now my Comments are being blocked again as they were before but not on all Blogs, perhaps it’s given this person access again to hack. I have the same main Supplier now as I had than but through a new Provider.

      Anyway A Servant , we are to count whatever we go through for The Lord as gain but not meaning we rejoice for what we suffer but that He is with us as we are afflicted by Satan and his followers, God will help us as His Redeemed, beloved Children endure and also ensure that we will have the Victory in Christ Jesus and He will expose those who are seeking to hurt us too and so they will reap what they sow unless they come to heart repentance and so we continue to pray they will see The Light and not remain in darkness but it is their choice God will not force them.

    • Thanks again Bee, I’m still having the same problem with Posting and have not yet heard from WordPress, but I will try again later.

      I do appreciate your thoughtfulness Bee but like all Awards I only accept them with the understanding there is no pressure to Post straight away. I have thought about Posting some of the ones I have now a few times but then had problems and now some who I Blogged with and who I knew their focus, no longer Blog and I like to take time to get to know other Bloggers, so when I give Awards they are genuine.

      God asks us to take an interest in what interests others, Blogging it is not just about expressing our own thoughts, everything we do in Jesus’ Name is to include others, of course with Blogging we can’t do this with everyone or we wouldn’t sleep or work but I love to respond when I can to those who show they appreciate what I share and visit them too and respond as I read their messages, hoping they know I also appreciate their sharing but I still try to do this with others even if we don’t agree but with just a few words or a thank you, To me Blogging is a conversation it’s not just one sided, like friendship we share together but if not I move on although not always because I want to and sometimes I will even try again, unless there seems to be no point.

      See you soon – Christian Love Anne.

      How very blessed your Son is to have you for his daddy, by your example he will be a real man of worth with a foundation in The Lord that won’t crumble, I’m so grateful that you have shared your Love for him and your wife with us but I often think of you and your work as a Nurse and feel you must be tested in your faith as you see people and their Loved ones suffer.

    Looking again at 1 Corinthians 2:9-16 again in context it reveals many Truths we may not at first see or understand. We do indeed have the Mind of Christ when we walk in His Truth.

        thanks for the offer. and thanks for this verse you posted on the other site

        1 Corinthians 2:9-16
        “….The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
        11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them?
        In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
        12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who
        is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.”

        and I remembered this verse too

        “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all
        without finding fault, and it will be given to him”
        – James 1:5

        so, I will definitely ask God for wisdom.

          Thats wonderful savedbygrace, I’m praying for you to be greatly blessed, we do indeed need God’s wisdom. As you no doubt know Scripture confirms Scripture which we see again with the verses below, Jesus is telling us because we are His friends will know the things of God.

          John 15:14-15 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.(KJV)

          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)

      To me I believe in encouraging others, uplifting them, commending their strengths and things about them that I find special or unique and Ron does the same, maybe he passed it on.

    Hi my little sister, so I’m your big sister…. opps missed the comma and wow has that caused a lot of error before today. It did not rain yesterday but it is forecasted for the rest of the week, I have wet throughout my house but it is from the dogs, they won’t go outside with the flooded yards. Ron’s coming tomorrow if he can get through, some roads are now blocked.

    I’m still praying we won’t have to evacuate like they warned last year, I decided to stay because they would not take our pets, they were going to use a helicopters to rescue us. I had to make that decision on my own because phone lines were down and all roads were blocked so I had no contact with Ron. I was very calm, many were praying for us but the dogs were very distressed I could not leave them like that alone, thankfully within a few days it stopped raining and the water drained away. Like you Caddo I’m sensitive but in some ways it is a blessing, we are more carful of others feelings and understand when they loose it . No I didn’t visit with Steve often but he was everywhere in the town I lived in, every shop had a picture of him and his family, they are still trying to keep him alive to attract the tourists but it is not the same.

    Love and BIG ((((( HUGS))))) Annie

    • Caddo Veil says:

      Dearest Anne–Well I feel better too! I’ve been praying since I got your earlier message–wondering what God wants me to do, regarding blogging and comments–how to prevent misunderstandings–or whether that’s just our enemy the devil trying to impede our efforts to serve and glorify God, and love one another. Just about every day I come under attack, and want to give this whole thing up! But I know that can’t be God–only the enemy, wanting to steal my joy! So I’ll continue to pray for wisdom as to what to say in acceptance speeches, and commenting on blogs (the poetry stays as is–if folks have a problem with that, too bad!). You can pray for me too! We’ll pray for each other!!

      I wasn’t really serious about us talking by phone, but since that seems to have excited you–maybe I should consider it more seriously (no bull or kidding). It’s possible that I, too, could call you without it being a hardship financially–I’m quite the gabber, though! Talk talk talk!! I can’t post my phone number for obvious reasons–however, if I had an email address for you, I could include it there. If I can’t find your contact info on your blog here, you can email me — caddoveil@comcast.net–Then we can trade info, and figure out if calling will work out or not. I’ll find out more about my phone plan, too.

      So glad the rain has stopped for now–is this a seasonal thing, there in Australia? Like monsoon season? I can’t wait to learn more about your homeland, Anne. Thank you for your generous heart toward me–such a huge wonderful gift and blessing to have you as my new sister! God bless you abundantly–take good care of yourself, get some rest!

              Hi Caddo so it seems we are resorting to name calling….

              Love you my beautiful sister, don’t forget your phone number so I can phone you. Annie

              I lived 5 minutes from Steve, his wife was a Christian but Steve wasn’t but we don’t know what happened at the point of death, so we can’t ever judge.

              • Caddo Veil says:

                Oh WOW–you lived so close to the Irwins? So, did you know them well and get to see them a lot? I kind of wondered about their faith, or lack of. Didn’t think Steve was saved, which seemed sad for the obvious reason–but also because he was just such a Good man (which we know isn’t enough, but it’s hard–maybe I’m not being clear: if someone is really a monster, and not saved, then it makes more sense somehow to me…). It’s possible the Lord grabbed him at the moment before death–I sure hope…

                Now I recognize that you’re teasing me–about the name-calling, silly sister stuff–but you’re right: what we notice critically in others, is often a mirror of our own attitudes–I’m guilty. I tell myself I’m silly when I’m being overly-sensitive to stuff (defensive over trivial things) or when I’m trying to joke around to keep from being too-serious.

                I think I’ll try to find a web article on Aussie “language”–so I can study up on how to talk like you! And yes, checking out the phone plan is on my to-do list–will get back to you about that. I need to find out the time difference too–it’s pretty big, isn’t it?

                It was really interesting to read that you’ve been blogging quite a while in Australia–before “here” (wherever that is–I’ve got blogger friends from all over now!)–and some of the difference in styles and such. Anyway, I just rolled out of bed–need to get dressed and do an errand before I get to stuck to my computer chair!

                God bless you BIG, my lovely fun sister, Anne (are things drying out yet, around you?)!!

    Dearest sister Anne– I’m writing this over here, in hopes you’ll get it easier/earlier than if I put it in reply to your comments on my blog. For goodness sake’s, my much-loved sister–stop worrying so much! You know the problem with emails, or these blog comment boxes, is that we often have to guess at what people mean and how they’re feeling when they say something. In truth, we are strangers, so we don’t know each other’s sense of humor–and can’t read their faces as they’re writing to us. I’ve run into this problem a few times of late–and I feel so bad, because I certainly don’t want people to misunderstand me, and think I’m being critical or acting offended. AND I’m equally “sensitive”–or “guilty” of misunderstanding what someone has written.

    I honestly believe the blogging community–particularly those of us who are believers–would never intentionally cause any hurt. I know I don’t–and I know you don’t, so stop fretting, dear heart. And the cultural differences make for something new and fun to learn about–I can’t wait to read the post about blogging Aussie style!! (I’m working on a short story right now, so it’s going to have to wait a bit…)

    Too bad I can’t call you on the phone so you could hear my voice–my joyful laughter–as I say, “don’t fret anymore, now, y’ hear”. Maybe Aussie’s say, “no worries, mate”?? You and I are spirit-sisters forever–we don’t even need awards to share how much love we have for each other, and for the Lord.

    In my comment, which apparently set you to worrying–about bull riders, and “no bull”–I was referring to my love for my boys, the bull riders, who God used so powerfully in my life to teach me some great lessons. And one of our blog sisters suggested I think about doing a post on that–telling the lessons I’d learned from them. So, hopefully, I’ll have time and creativity to write that post before too long. So, me saying “no bull”–meant, I think, the same as you–that I’m not kidding about the lessons, and my intentions to write about them.

    Are we okay now, Anne? Let me know if I can explain it better. And I’m so sorry about the flooding–I’m sure that makes you very anxious, and keeps you from getting good rest. I’m praying that you will be alright, okay? Much much love, your sister Caddo!!

    Hi Martha, yes there are times that because of life circumstances we battle but it is not God who brings these battles or who causes us to suffer and have hardship. God is Love and can do no evil, we ourselves, others or because we lives in a fallen world controlled by Satan do indeed suffer. It is not a weakness or sin to cry or grieve, Jesus was known as a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief and He cried, He was real He did not wear a mask. Tears like laughter are a gift from God to help us heal and even with tears in our eyes we can have God’s deep Joy in our heart. I have been through some very violent Storms in my life and the Lord helped me and now I have His wonderful Truth to hold onto too… I will share some with you, but if you would like to share more in privacy please feel to use the link below shiningbrightlights but you are also welcome to continue here if wanted …

When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

I appreciate prayer support to be sure I hear what He is revealing to me so that I can walk in faith on the right path. Thanks for your wonderful reply here. I so appreciate it. IHS, Martha

  89. How delightful it is to be welcomed as a child of the King of Kings! So life giving. My dear priest, Fr Rick, comforted me a while back when I was feeling very low and full of self doubt. I was then and am now facing a challenge that I can’t seem to rremedy and was full of feelings of having somehow failed. His reminder that I am a daughter of the King of Kings was so uplifting to me. I don’t understand why I still face the need I’m facing and worry about my ability to care for those I must care for, yet I know God has a purpose in it and so when my weakness as a human brings worry, He restores with with His peace and love! Growing pains – His plan for our lives is always best and His timing is perfect!

      Hi Joshua I’m sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your kind offer of the Kreativ Blogger Award, I have had to make some major changes to my Blog and now have my husband Ron helping me. I have already received this Award and believe you can only receive it once, but because of the problems with my Blog have not posted it yet.

      I was going to nominate you for it, but instead I will talk to you about another Award that is very differant, no rules etc I hope you like it, I will let you know next comment. But if you like Awards Joshua and they are a great way to encourage other Bloggers and to meet new ones, I have other Awards that need people who are interested in receiving them and your a very uplifting writer so I would have no hesitation in nominating you for them.

      Christian Love Anne.

          Hi Franny for some reason your comment is not on top, anyway I found you, as I shared on your Blog I thank you very much for your kindness and your understanding in that I need to have time to fufil the Award rules. I believe if I accept an Award then I need to respect the person who created it and comply with they have asked but I need time to do so which they don’t rule against. What I now do is attach the symbol so others know I have it for those Awards you can only receive once and then post later, the others I will post straight away unless I want to present it to others as a blessing.

          Thank you again Christian Love Anne.

  94. Hey Anne!
    Thanks for commenting on my blog with the encouragement of Romans 8:28 – That too is one of my favourite verses that has kept me from falling in the deep end many times. I am enjoying your blog and also reading a fellow Australian, Don’t seem to find many Aussie Christian Bloggers. As a 19y/oi appreciate your wisdom and encouragement, Keep going strong for the Lord.
    Yours In Christ

      Dear Nicole, thank you, how wonderful to receive your encouragement on my Blog today, it’s my Birthday and I feel it is a beautiful gift that I can also thank God for. When I read a few of your messages, I felt what a very passionate and focused young woman for the Lord you are, I was blessed to see your heart focus.

      I have only had my Blog for 3 mths but have been commenting on other peoples Blogs for a long time.I’m disabled and so I have more time then most to blog, I have met bloggers from all over the world but mostly Americans, I’m now seeking to connect with Australian Christian Bloggers again.

      Thank you again Nicole, Christian Love Anne.

      Sorry Nicole but I don’t know why your blog is rejecting this comment, I had no problem the first time with the URL.

  97. Hi Anne
    I have read a few of your posts. We have a few things in common but the greatest of these is our love for our Saviour and our desire for all to know, love and serve Him. I will be visiting here again when I have more time.

    It is good to “meet” a fellow Queenslander here.

    I saw your post in the forum. It’s easy. You should start your topic to something which you really know about; where you can give lots of info, and share about many things regarding your topic. I was also new here, and started first day of Sept. i was like you don’t know where to start, but as long as you know what you are writing about, it will be easy for you to get another one for next time. It will takes time until you will have readers, its not like.; you post today and you will have many readers the following days.. It can take months or weeks to finally have few readers or subscribers to your blog. What you must do is to just write and write many topics as you can, post it, and readers will soon know that your blog exist.. Just enjoy what you are doing, give update to your blog. Best of luck.! 🙂

          Good to hear from you again Anicka we have lost touch but thank you for nominating me for the Versatile Blog Award but as you can see I already have this Award although I have yet to Post it but will do so in the near future… how did you go with the Awards I nominated you for, I must check your Blog again, sorry that I have not done so before although I did for a few weeks but as I believe we should not have pressure with them I thought like me you would post them later perhaps you have I will check again.

          I was told that we can only receive this Award once by another Blogger the same as some other Awards but I’m not sure if this is true now because I can’t see where it tells us this in the rules I never checked them before I didn’t know you could, I just believed this Blogger as she was telling others the same thing, perhaps she believed it was true.

          But when I do Post this Award I will also thank you for nominating me and nominate you again
