Bible Challenge (Hebrews 11:17-19)

"By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promisees offered up his only begotten son, Of whom it was sai, that in Isaac shall thy seed be called: Accountig that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure." - Hebrews 11:17-19

Am I willing to offer even that which is most precious?

Bible Challenge (Hebrews 4:10)

"For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works," - Hebrews 4:10

What a blessing to be able to rest in the righteousness of Christ, and not try to work up my own!

Bible Challenge (Isaiah 58:13)

"If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:" - Isaiah 58:13

Whose pleasure will I do on the Lord's day? Where is my focus?

Another "Reliable" Acrostic! :-D

Ready to do chores well
Eager to help
Loves to do things for others
Is a hardy worker
Available all the time
Breaks the ice to ask “can I do something?”
Listens to all instructions carefully before starting
Even in dark places is always cheerful

Posts from the Past
Every Wednesday (Now Tuesday!) I post something that I have written in the past. It may have been written a long time ago, or a very, very long time ago! :-D So please forgive any mistakes!

Bible Challenge (Isaiah 55:8-9)

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9

I KNOW God's plans for my life are infinitely better than mine. Am I open to His plan? Am I willing to follow His way for my life?

Bible Challenge (Nehemiah 4:17-18)

"They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon. For the builders, every one had his sword girded by his side, and so builded. And he that sounded the trumpet was by me." - Nehemiah 4:17-18

The children of Israel had their tools in one hand and their weapons in the other. So many times I get so busy in the Lord's work, I let down my guard towards the Enemy, or I get so busy fighting the enemy I neglect the Lord's work. Am I prepared, by God's strength and through His might, to work for the Lord AND be able to fight against the Enemy?

Bible Challenge (Isaiah 45:9)

"Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?" 
- Isaiah 45:9

Who am I to find fault with the trials God brings me through, or the ways He chooses to teach me and draw me closer to Him? Am I so desirous to learn of God and to be drawn closer to Him that I am willing to go through ANYTHING He brings my way to get there?
