Hopes Abandoned? Come Now!

  Hopes 5x5 Abandoned by Julie Shiel, Xenya.etsy.com
Come ye weary, heavy laden, Lost and ruined by the fall;
If you tarry till you're better, You will never come at all!
Not the righteous, not the righteous, Sinners Jesus came to call;
Not the righteous, not the righteous, Sinners Jesus came to call.

"Come Ye, Sinners" lyrics by Joseph Hart

times of grave danger

In Times of Grave Danger by franticmeerkat.etsy.com






  On the news, in the media, the web, where ever, what ever, 
~ not everyone who names the name of Jesus Christ is of Him   
                 ...don't get in the boat with them.

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.

By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,
 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. 

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.   1 john 4:1-4

Hal low!

For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, 
it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching 
to save them that believe. 1 corinthians 1:21

hide n' seek

yellow grasshopper from the garden
 no more hiding...it is safe to come out - He beckons you, "Come unto me"

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. matthew 6:33

Hallowed be His name :) matthew 6:6, luke 11:2

The Trio

Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;  Knowing brethren beloved, your election of God."

In The Palace

AP photo from www.businessinsider.com

So, the rebels came in, and threw the strong man (woman) out -
the Gadhafi/Qaddafi's.
.....but who replaced whom? 
And, who will be in charge? -
it is the same in our hearts - we push something out, and something stronger takes it's place.
We are governed by a leader in our hearts - 
it is either the Rebels, or a Gadhafi.......
unless it is the Lord Jesus Christ enthroned.

Critters in the Shop - they have a designer

This is how the little creatures featured in my shop start - as a fluff of wool ....


 after repeated poking with felting needles, much shaping and designing, they start to look more critter-like

then, add some hand painted wool - needled into the critter.......








It did not happen by itself - I made it - and the wool, came from sheep....and the Designer put the information in the sheep to make the wool, which I used, to make the critter :)
Therefore, to say that over time, the fluff of wool  became the critter would be nonsense - someone crafted it......and the little critter in the shop is hardly as lovely or as delicately designed as the real one, full of life, kept and Created by Almighty God.

make.believe

 

"the dot that links make and believe is the place where imagination and reality collide"  from Sony's site explaining the concept of their brand's message"make.believe"

the brand message fits evolution too -  make-believe, yet folks swallow it because it is force fed to them ad nauseam from cradle to grave...

and  make.believe evolution is where imagination and reality collide,  but reality is not overtaken by imagination, and  truth always wins  -
  
EVOLUTION
   make.believe

the make-believe that is evolution and billions of years theories is not now, nor has it ever been, supported by  facts, or science-

Question Evolution 
Question the age of the earth and universe 

"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,
casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ..." 2 corinthians ch.10vs4-5

Do you have your reusable bag?

The plastic bag by eyetOy


they are now *"banished"  from the local markets - the reusable plastic bags that I collect and reuse...
Clerks have told me...repeatedly...that the bags would be banished!...though I really wanted to ignore it  -

 
Whether I have a reusable bag, or not, or even whether reusable bags are banned or not is meaningless -

ignoring God is entirely different


 where will you go eternally? 
Haven't you heard?

we all will pay for our sins.  you think you are paying now? guess again - the federal debt of trillions of dollars can be paid off but you and I cannot pay for our sins - not even one.  Eternal death is the penalty - don't believe in eternity? - guess again;
your soul is eternal; plastic bags are not. so, while folks are running around worrying about having too many plastic bags supplied by markets, grocery stores and the like, and what a great achievement it is to have the bags "banned",


I am saying - grab your salvation while you can! please! you need it, and Lord Jesus Christ is the One and Only Way - He paid your debt!  And the gift of life in Jesus Christ, the gift of grace is free - receive it.......
or not,


 and the wrath of God is something only Lord Jesus could satisfy  - get your account clean with Him now, please -
you will spend eternity paying for it in horror, without grace or mercy...only His Wrath punishing you eternally

just like all the folks telling me that the bags would be banished one day, I ignored it, and here it is ......there WILL come a day when it WILL be too late for you to make a decision -


Time to get yourself right with God - right now, between you and Him and you can do so by praying to God from your heart and mouth-
talk to Him - He needs to hear from you

plastics bags do not matter.

You do.

*Los Angeles County, however, they may still be found

Just One Crop....

Under The Mighty Oak http://www.etsy.com/shop/BehindthePicture

 The Crop of Acorns

There came a man in days of old
To hire a piece of land for gold,
And urged his suit in accents meek:
"One crop alone is all I seek;
The harvest o'er, my claim I'll yield
And to its lord return the field."

The owner some misgivings felt,
And coldly with the stranger dealt;
But found his last objection fail, 
And honeyed argument prevail;
So took the offered price in hand,
And for "one crop" leased out the land.

The wily tenant sneered with pride
And sowed the spot with acorns wide;
At first like tiny shoots they grew,
Then broad and wide their branches threw;
But long before those oaks could climb,
And finally reach their forest prime, 
The cheated landlord moldering lay,
Forgotten, with his kindred clay.

O ye whose years, unfolding fair,
Are fresh with youth and free from care,
should vice or laziness desire
The garden of your souls to hire,
No bargains make - reject the suit;
Don't let one seed the soil pollute.

My child, the first approach beware;
With firmness break the evil snare
Lest, as the acorns grew and throve
Into a sun-excluding grove,
Thy sins, a dark o'ershadowing tree,
Shut out the light of heaven from thee.

L.H. Sigourney

Thanksgiving

 



And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs.  

From our Gracious God, even the crumbs are most plentiful and abundantly enough - and how much more does He always shower us with?

Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.  Psalm 103:2

live a good life?

Because it is not about how you live your life -

it is about Him living the perfect life, and sacrificing that perfect life to pay for the debt and punishment we all have incurred by sin.  You cannot live a good life, neither can I...though I thought I had....
Glad He did.  Do you know Him?
Romans 3:23  "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
Romans 6:23a  "...The wages of sin is death..."
Romans 6:23b  "...But the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord." 


Romans 5:8,  "God demonstrates His own love for us, in
that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us!"
Romans 10:13  "Whoever will call on the name of the Lord  will be saved!"  
Romans 10:9,10  "...If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting  in salvation."

the foolish and the powerless

quilled mouse by LifesSweetDelights  elephant illustration by ankepankedesign



..God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those those who think they are wise.  And He chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful......so that no man can ever boast in the presence of God.
