Blessed Mothers –

For ANYONE who has read a few of my posts know that besides the other RANTS that I may do from time to time – talking about being a parent – talking about politics – talking about relationships – talking about ministry – I SURELY do a great deal of blogs about who I affectionately call ym “Mommy Cakes” ……… She indeed is utterly amazing!

Blessed are the Mothers who love God, for their children shall  not be ignorant of their Creator and His plans about them.  Blessed are the Mothers who love the word of God, for their children shall know of the way, the truth and the life.
image

Blessed are the Mothers who love the house of God, for their  children shall enter there and sit with them in the presence of God. Blessed are the Mothers who love to pray, for their children  shall feel the power of prayer and many shall find salvation. Blessed are the Mothers who love to give to the cause of Christ,  for their children shall become supporters of the Kingdom of God.

Blessed are the Mothers who love the family altar, for they  shall have their reward in this world and in the world to come. Blessed are the Mothers who love to speak kind words to their  neighbor’s children, for thereby they shall win  other boys and girls besides their own to Jesus Christ. Blessed are the Mothers who love to be companions to their  children, for they shall be called understanding Mothers.

Blessed are the Mothers who love to fight life’s battles  bravely with a strong and steadfast faith in God, for their  children shall know where to find strength in time of need. Blessed are the Mothers who, when they are old and gray,  can look back upon memory’s wall with no regret and can say,  “I brought my children up in the fear of the Lord.”  Theirs are the mansions in glory.

Eery test that you have experienced is the kind that normally comes to people.  But God keeps his promise, and he will not allow you to be tested beyond your power to remain firm: at the time you are put to the test, he will give you the strength to endure it, and so provide you with a way out.

 

Relationships

Being Kind v.s Being Right


image

Being right is a matter of perspective as well.  I may see right differently than you do…so we get back to the greatest law, which is the law of love.  God is love and if we show his attributes, we will truly be in the right in the end, even if we do not see things the way others see them.
image

Showing love and understanding towards other people’s frailties and weaknesses is what God prefers. We could be right but let it be tempered with kindness towards the other person. God commands us to love one another, that includes being kind.

 Something God slowly whittles away at over time until your life is no longer about you if you give your life to Him. Life  becomes about serving God and serving others above all else. When we can come to a point in our life where what we want is of little significance, we no longer have to be right, our personal value in this world means nothing!

As the bible says, we are stronger when we are at our weakest moments, when all we can do is turn it all over to God, He then fills us, build us, holds us up.

It is possible for us to ‘lose’ our peace, even after being saved, like if we get angry or afraid. When this happens, it is primarily our fault, if we are supposed to be accountable to ourselves, though other people can play a role in it. When Jesus said that He gives us His peace, He covered us in these regards. So that if we lose our peace, we may still have His peace, and also use His peace to help get our own back.

Peace is not tranquility, it is not serenity, and it is not being calm. It is actually the desire of joy having been accomplished, just as joy is the desire of love having been accomplished. Tranquility is temporal, and serenity actually involves what is around us more than what is inside of us. Tranquility is temporal, because it is like a drug that is injected into us, hence the meaning of the suffix ‘quil,’ just like a porchipine’s quils. Serenity has to do with a peaceful atmosphere. Not that tranquility or serenity are bad things, they just aren’t the fullness of what peace is.

My face looks like how some people’s mind may be thinking as they are reading this Babbling Blog!!!!!! But this isn’t really confusing, it’s just kind of technical!!…… LOL

In looking at the fruit of the Spirit, love, joy, and peace are as love, faith, and hope. Showing a simlarity between peace and hope. The first three fruits of the Spirit are actually nouns, while the next three deal with what you get when the first three are accomplished. Together, love, joy, and peace can all be found in the spirit, while patience, kindness, and goodness may be found in the soul; leaving faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control to be found in the body.

{spirit: love, joy, peace soul: patience, kindness, goodness, body: faithfulness, gentleness, self-control}

The last three fruits of the Spirit have to do with how to come into possessing the first six, in preceding order. This is true just as what Paul was talking about in Romans 7 about knowing how to perform what is good is all about the body, just as he said that sin was in his flesh, and that it was no longer him who was sinning, but sin itself. And thus is it also true that the soul enters in, as we wholly walk in the Spirit, and not in the flesh, just as we may still sin, but through faith our insides aren’t sinning, our outsides are.

If the last three fruits of the Spirit deal with the body, and if peace also deals with the body (love, joy, peace; spirit, soul, body; love, faith, hope- showing how peace, the body, and hope are connected), then peace is also how to come into possessing love and joy.

Goodness then helps us keep our peace, as goodness can show us how to possess patience and kindness, just as goodness also deals with how to possess the preceding fruits of the Spirit, as goodness has to do with the body and hope.
