LSOF: Something I found in my email today…

I just want to say BEFORE you read that EVERYTHING in this email below, was from 2005!
AND just go ahead and read on…and then see what my #12 memory verse is:)
God is good!!!

My friend sent this to me, and I just had to pass it on, because it is soooo true! Will we just continue to talk the talk, or actually begin to walk our talk?
It is about whatever it takes….

Be Blessed:-) ~Angie

Would you run?

Imagine this happening to you…
One Sunday morning during service, a 2,000 member congregation was
surprised to see two men enter, both covered from head to toe in black
and carrying submachine guns.
One of the men proclaimed,
“Anyone willing to take a bullet for Christ remain where you are.”
Immediately, the choir fled…
the deacons fled…
and most of the congregation fled….
Out of the 2,000 there only
remained around 20.
The man who had spoken took off his hood…
He then looked at the preacher and said “Okay Pastor, I got rid of all
the hypocrites… Now you may begin your service. Have a nice
And the two men turned and walked out.
*Funny how simple it is for people to trash God ….
and then wonder why the world is in the condition it is today….
*Funny how we believe what the newspapers say…
but question what the Bible says…
*Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven…
provided they do not have to believe, think, say, or do anything the
Bible says.
or is it scary?
*Funny how someone can say “I believe in God”…
but still follow Satan (who, by the way, also “believes”in God).
*Funny how you can send a thousand ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they
spread like wildfire…
but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, you think twice
about sharing.
*Funny how the lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene pass freely through
but the public discussion of Jesus is suppressed in the school and work
*Funny, isn’t it? Funny how someone can be so fired up for Christ on
but be an invisible Christian the rest of the week.
Are you laughing?
*Funny how when you go to forward this message…
you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not
sure what they believe…
or what they will think of you for sending it to them.
*Funny how I can be more worried about what other people think of me…
… than what God thinks of me.
Are you thinking?
Will you share this with people you care about?
Or not?
I picked you~
May the Lord bless you and keep you,
May the Lord make His face to shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
May the Lord lift up His favour upon you
And give you His peace.

Psalm 16:5-6

” LORD , you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. ”

” God is in control
We believe that His children will not be forsaken
God is in control
We will choose to remember and never be shaken
There is no power above or beside Him. ” ~Twila Paris

LSOF: Whatever it takes

Looking Up Pictures, Images and Photos

” My sheep hear my voice, I know them, and they follow Me.” ( John 10:27) HCSB

My dear friends, I have just had a major profound thing happen to me this morning.
It has caused me to break down in complete tears.
This was spoken to my heart today;

“You may hear my voice after the fact, not always before,
but you WILL hear my voice if you ASK for it.
You are being equipped to become something major for me,
but being afraid and discouraged, will not get you there.
And you and I are gonna do this, WHATEVER IT TAKES!”

The morning bible study I am doing is, ” Discerning the Voice Of God” by Priscilla Shirer, and
it is amazing. As a group we were all sitting around and the facilitator was talking about
being there for each other, and coming together and understanding each other, and encouraging one
another in their walk. And she said, ” Its whatever it takes, we are there all the way.”

THEN I was watching my ” Believing God” study today after, and at the very end Beth said almost exactly the same thing but in regards to US personally, ” We have to be strong and courageous, and our success will be oh how much of a grasp we have on God.”

But even if we don’t quite have it yet, even if we still fight those insecurities and little imperfections that hinder us…God is right there saying, ” You and I are gonna do this, whatever it takes!”

I hope this speaks to you as it did me today, the first day on learning how to hear the voice of God,
and it pretty much is shouted out to me:)

I love Him so:)

Be Blessed!!!
