Is our worth based upon what we have?

Our children?

Our jobs?

Our money?

Is it based upon who we are or is it based upon WHOSE we are?

Day 83 of 365 Days of Sharing ... Consider Your Ways?

Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts, “Consider your ways! You have sown much, but harvest little; you eat, but there is not enough to be satisfied; you drink, but there is not enough to become drunk; you put on clothing, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns, earns wages to put into a purse with holes.”  Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Consider your ways!   Haggai 1:5- 7   (NASB)

Consider my ways?  Hmmm ... now this is something to think about!

Day 82 of 365 Days of Sharing ... Prayer

Those who fail to pray because they do not feel close to God may not feel close to God because they fail to pray. You have to spend time with God. God gave each and everyone one of us free will. We all have a choice. God isn’t going to come busting in like gang busters to get us to spend time with Him. He leaves that ‘choice’ up to us. When I say ‘spending time’ that means reading your Bible, meditating on His word, and spending regular time in prayer with Him. He’s not going to hunt you down. He wants you to draw near to Him, to seek Him out.

Day 77 of 365 Days of Sharing ... a challenge

Are you up for a challenge???

Here you go ...

Challenge: Ask God to bring to your mind any sin that He sees in your life. (Psalm 139: 23-24) It is a humbling experience. After you’ve made things right with God, ask the Lord to bring to your mind anyone you need to seek forgiveness from. Oh, now that is really hard to do. It’s one thing to confess to God, in the privacy of our hearts and minds, but to have to go to someone and admit wrong doing … well that’s a different story. If we are going to be pleasing to God though we must swallow our pride and proceed (Ephesians 4:1-4).

Day 76 of 365 Days of Sharing ... Our Lord Cares

For Those Times When We Need This Reminder …

Scripture:   The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous and His ears are open to their cry. Psalm34:15

I’m Noticing About this Scripture: (1) that the Lord is aware (2) that He is ready to hear (3) that He is on constant standby

I’m Thinking:  (1) that it is so encouraging to know that God is looking out for those who are His (2) it makes me glad to be among the righteous  (note to self:  being righteous does not mean being perfect)

Word Definitions from this Scripture:
            Toward:  in the direction
            Righteous:   acting in accord with divine or moral law
            Open:   allowing access, passage or a view through
Cry:  to utter sounds especially of lamentation, grief or suffering usually with tears

In my own words:  The Lord is mindful of those who obey Him and He stands ready to hear their problems and sufferings.

Take Away:  Our Lord cares!

Additional Thoughts:  The very knowledge that our Lord cares, that He is ready and waiting to hear our cry brings great comfort.  It makes me love Him more.  May we ever be encouraged by this passage during times of trails and temptations.

Day 71 of 365 Days of Sharing ... Our Void Spot!

Day 70 of 365 Days of Sharing ... Do You Know ...

... what the unpardonable sin is, otherwise known as blasphemy against the Holy Spirit?

We read about it in Matthew 12:30-32 and in Mark 3:29 ...

It is ...

An ongoing attitude of rebellion toward God ...

Willful rejection of God ...

A stubborness that resists and rejects the Holy Spirit ...

Any sin for which we will not repent.

If you are worried about committing the unpardonable sin, then you are not in any danger of committing it!

Day 67 of 365 Days of Sharing ... Parenting #2

If I were raising children again, I would do Bible story/games every night.  Yes, EVERY.NIGHT!

When they are small the story/games would be acting out the Bible story, singing Bible songs, playing Bible games, etc.  I would not expect them to sit and listen to a Bible story being read.

When they become readers I would make a game of finding books in the Bible, matching games that involved things like matching books of the Bible with their themes, memorizing Bible verses, asking 'what should we do' type questions as well as ethical type questions, etc.

When they are older readers I would introduce Bible scavenger hunt type activities and deepen the 'what should we do' and ethical type questions.  I would take everyday situations and show them how to use the Bible to find the solution, etc.  I would make it as interesting as I possibly could.

By the time they are high schoolers, we would be doing full fledged Bible studying and discussions. They would continue to memorize scripture and tackle real life situations from a biblical standpoint.  Again, I would make it as interesting as I possibly could.

This is just a small sample of the things I would do during Bible story/games each night.  On those nights when we were away from home or traveling we would do Bible story/game time in the vehicle.

Training our children for the Lord is so much more than just taking them to church 3 times a week and sending them to Bible camp every summer.  The responsibility for teaching children lies squarely on the shoulders of their parents.  Oh, that parents would take this responsibilty seriously!

Day 66 of 365 Days of Sharing ... 2017 ... Parenting

Over the next few days and whenever else I think of it, I'd like to share some ideas on the following topic ...

If I were raising children all over again, what would I do?

I would teach them that they can't and should not expect to always have what they want when they want it and I would do my best to instill the following truths in them ....

that as a child they are subject to their parents and anyone their parents leave them with, so they don't get to do what they want when they want ...

that when they start school they are subject to the rules and regulations of their teacher and school, so they don't get to do what they want when they want ...

that when they are old enough to hold down a job that they are subject to their employer, so they don't get to do what they want when they want ...

that when they marry they have to work with their spouse in a give and take relationship, so they don't get to do what they want when they want ...

that as an adult they are subject to the laws of the land, so they don't get to do what they want when they want ...

Never in a person's life should they think that just because they want something or want to do something, they should have it or be able to do it regardless.

I would take great care to instill these truths in them because once they understand that while they are an important part of the world, the world does not revolve around their wants and wishes, then and only then have you laid a solid foundation that all other truths can be built upon.

Day 65 of 365 Days of Sharing ... 2017 ... Fellowshipping with the Girls!

Today, a group of ladies from our congregation met to start a study using the book, The Begging Place by Becky Blackman.

I've been trying to find the words to sum up this first meeting and this is what I came up with ...

Sisters in Christ united with the common goal of spiritual growth ...

Sisters in Christ talking together ...

Sisters in Christ sharing together ...

Sisters in Christ listening to each other ...

Sisters in Christ enjoying a time of spiritual fellowship ...

Sisters in Christ growing in our prayer lives ...

Sisters in Christ growing closer to each other ...

Sisters in Christ helping each other on their journey to heaven.

It was a great study and time of fellowship and I'm truly looking forward to the next time we get to meet!

Day 64 of 365 Days of Sharing ... 2017 ... Queen Esther Class!

I'm working on a special series of classes for the little girl's in our congregation.  It will take place June through August of this summer on Wednesday nights.  It will be for girls 5 - 9 years old and will be about Queen Esther.

Here's what I'm planning so far ...

I'm putting together an Esther coloring/activity book for each girl

Within that coloring/activity book will be memory verses to learn, songs to sing, rewards to earn and a project for them to complete.

I'm working on making a set of Esther paper dolls for each girl to help them learn the Esther story.

We will have a banquet during the last class along with a little program. The  mommies, daddies and grandparents will be invited.

Can you think of something else I can add to this series that will make learning about Esther fun for these girls?

Thanks!

Day 56 of365 Days of Sharing ... 2017 ... Favor

But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.  Genesis 6:8

Did you no that?  What does it mean?

It means ...

Noah was blameless ... not sinless.

He was a man of moral integrity.

He walked with God.  This is how he lived righteously.   (He probably mimicked his grandfather, Enoch.)

Walking with God means being obedient to God.  He did what God told him to do, he did all that the Lord commanded him.

What can we learn from Noah?

Day 55 of 365 Days of Sharing ... 2017 ... Encouragement

I was looking back over some notes I took from a session on encouragement I attended at a workshop last year.  Here are the highlights ...

Everyone needs encouragement.

Encouragement is not flattery.

If you encourage others, you will be encouraged.

Do  you know about the 10-minute rule?  Give any negative thing or thoughts 10 minutes to occupy your mind ... No more!  After 10 minutes force yourself to move on and fill  your mind with something else.

If we focus on ourself too much, we can't encourage others.

God is always there no matter what you're going through.

We rarely ever grow spiritually during the fun times.

Some people never look up until they're lying flat on their backs.

Many are so self-centered in their own lives and struggles, it's hard for them to encourage others.

Learn to encourage other people.  In order to do this we must take our focus off ourself.

What happens when we encourage ... (1) God is glorified; (2) Others will be edified; (3) we will be rewarded in Heaven

I hope  these notes are as encouraging to you as they were and are to me!

Day 53 of 365 Days of Sharing ...What I'm Studying!

I’m doodling again!  Some of the ladies in our congregation expressed interest in starting a ladies book club where we meet and discuss a spiritually based book each week.  I thought it was a good idea and joined the group.  The first book we will be reading and studying is on prayer, The Begging Place by Becky Blackmon.  I cannot say enough good about this book, yes, I have read it before and it was so good, I am looking forward to reading and studying it again.  This time though, to help me in my study, I’m going to doodle the book as we go along. (Doodling is not required, this is just something I’m doing to help me glean from the book.)

The first assignment is to read chapter 1 with the first meeting coming up in a couple of weeks.  I’m in the process of reading it and I’ve already doodled the first page in the spiral notebook I’ll be using for the study. Doodling helps reinforce what I’m reading and I am excited about studying this book this way.

Day 52 of 365 Days of Sharing ... 2017 ... Likewise Ye Older Women: # 2, 2017

For a period of about 5 years a few years ago I wrote a monthly bulletin type paper for women titled Likewise Ye Older Women.  Each month I wrote about a different topic, always for women, and distributed it to women individually and through churches. 

I have picked this back up and started it again.  Permission is granted to print and distribute each issue to other women as long as there are no changes made.  The document is set up to be printed front to back on a single sheet of paper and then folded in half.

Here’s the current issue …

Day 50 of 365 Days of Sharing ... 2017 ... "A Happy!"

I received a ‘happy’ in the mail yesterday!  What’s a ‘happy?’  It’s when someone gives you something for no reason; it’s given just to make someone happy!  What a special thing to do!  I feel so blessed and loved!

My ‘happy’ was the book, Lightening Your Load, Repacking Your Bags for a Fuller Life by Nancy Eichman  and it came from a friend I get to see for a few days once a year.

This is the same friend who taught me about ‘happy’ gifts.  It can be something as simple as a candy bar, cookies, homemade bread, etc.   I love this idea and concept, don’t you?  Wouldn't this be a great personal ministry for each of us ladies.  Just think how much 'happy' we could spread!!!  

I want to be a ‘happy’ giver so I’m planning what to give and who my first recipient will be.   And, since I want to be a ‘happy’ giver on a regular basis I plan to create a template to use to make the tags I'll attach to each ‘happy’ gift.  This will enable me to be able to print the tags off and have them ready for use when needed.

Thank you Pama for my 'happy' gift and for introducing me to another way of showing Jesus’ love to others!

Day 49 of 365 Days of Sharing ... 2017 ... Learning to BEE Like Dorcas

It's banquet night and I had one of their guest teachers (who is very talented in this area) make each girl a corsage to wear.  
I had the girls meet me in the classroom before our guests arrived and I pined their corsages on them, went over there last minute questions and tried to calm their jittery nerves.

Our guests arrived and the banquest started.  The girls did amazing in their presentations, I was amazed at how much they had learned about Dorcas.

The girls presented the 2 guest teachers they had had with a gift, got to open the prizes they had been earning and had refreshments while we invited our guests to look through the things on the table ...



Not all the girls finished their embrodiery work, but that was okay too.  The goal was for the girls too learn about Dorcas and about how they could BEE like her.  I feel like we succeeded!

I simply loved teaching this class and would do it again in a heartbeat!

I have tried to give you a glimpse of what we did, if you have any questions, please feel free to asked.

I taught a teenage girls Bible class for 8 years and have lots more material that I'll share at a later date.

Weeks 10 - 12 (I was back in town.) found us preparing for our our upcoming banquet.  We made invitations for the girls to hand deliver to their mothers and grandmothers inviting them to the banquet.   We also gave invitations to our two guest speakers.  

In addition, each girl was to prepare a 2 - 3 minute presentation on Dorcas to give at the banquet and that's what we worked on during the 3 week period of time that remained in the series.

Lessons 6 and 7 found us reviewing previous lessons, working on our ABC memory verses and scrapbooking. Yes, that’s right scrapbooking. I had been taking pictures all along so we took a couple of weeks and put them into a scrapbook. I let the girls do the scrapbooking themselves.  What fun they had with this!

And what did we do while the girl's scrapbooked?  We talked of course ... about whatever they wanted to talk about!  I did a lot of listening and they did a lot of sharing.  Sometimes it was biblical issues they wanted to talk about and sometimes it was teenage girl kind of drama stuff.  We spent 2 class periods doing this ... and the girls loved it!

Lesson 5 found us looking at the words influence and example. We talked about what each meant and about Dorcas’ influence and example. Then we applied it to their lives and talked about the influence they had, the power of their influence, and the importance of knowing that their/our influence affects those they/we associate with.

Day 41 of 365 Days of Sharing ... 2017 ... Learning to BEE Like Dorcas

By patsy norwood ~ © 2008 - 2017 ~ All Rights Reserved

Lesson 4

After reviewing previous lessons we delved into lesson 4 which was based on Dorcas’ death. We talked about how the dead were cared for in Bible times verses how the dead are cared for in today’s times which came as a result of ‘Dorcas’ body being laid in the upper room.’ In the midst of our discussion one of the girls said she needed to ask me a Bible question later. Well ladies, if the girls want to discuss Bible we are going to discuss Bible even if it is in the middle of a Bible lesson, so we stopped our lesson on Dorcas and addressed her question. She made the statement that in a discussion with one of her friends she had been asked if she was going to the prom this year and she had said no. When asked why, she stated that the Bible taught that the type of dancing that went on at proms was wrong. The friend, of course, wanted to know where in the Bible it said that. That was my student’s question, where in the Bible does it say dancing of this nature is wrong. I was overjoyed with my student’s response and willingness to be different and was more than willing to arm her with the knowledge she needed to carry an answer back to her friend. We started at …

I Peter 4:1-4 (NKJV)
Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles – when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking, parties, and abominable idolatries. In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you.

After reading these Scriptures I asked if she/they heard the word dancing anywhere in the reading and she/they correctly answered, ‘no.’ I told them they were right and then directed them to look at the word ‘revelries’ in verse 3.

Definition of revelries …
An occasion or course of noisy festivity with dancing and other forms of entertainment

We then turned to
Galatians 5:19-21 (NKJV)

Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you before hand, just as I also told you in time past that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.


Here again I noted to them that we don’t find the word ‘dancing’ but what we do find is the word lewdness (some translations use lasciviousness) in verse 19.

Lewdness/lasciviousness
Wanton acts or manners; indecent bodily movements, unchaste handling of males and females

I then asked the class if any of those behaviors occurred at a prom and they all agreed that they did.

We turned to one more Scripture found in
Romans 13:13 …

Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.

I explained to the class that I didn’t write the Bible, that this teaching did not originate with me, but came from God’s word and that sometimes being a Christian meant that we would be different.

She then had another question … What passages of Scripture would be good to read during the partaking of the Lord’s Supper each week? Ladies, my heart soared with joy, these girls were listening even when I thought they might not have been! I explained to her that all the Scriptures were good ones to read during the Lord’s Supper then I shared with her what I do. I open my Bible wherever it might open and start reading quietly to myself and continuing reading until the Lord’s Supper is completed. I explained to her that by reading God’s Word during the Lord’s Supper it keeps my mind focused on Jesus and the tremendous sacrifice He made for me, for mankind. I also explained to the class that I am human just like everyone else and that if I don’t do this I find my mind wondering about things such as lunch, the many things I need to do at home, etc.

This young lady left class that night with Bible facts straight from God’s word to help her help others and to help fortify the choices she is making. From a teacher's point of view, it just doesn't get any better than that!

Day 39 of 365 Days of Sharing ... 2017 ... Learning to BEE Like Dorcas

By patsy norwood © 2008 - 2017 All Rights Reserved

Lesson 3

In lesson 3 the girls were well on their way in their stitching projects had the needle ‘stick’ marks on their fingers to prove it.

Our spiritual lesson centered around Acts 9:36 and the fact that Dorcas was full of good works and charitable deeds. We spent a good portion of the lesson discussing what constituted good works and charitable deeds and our motives behind them. We also talked about what type of things each of them, as teenage girls, could do that would fall under this category.

And of course we checked their homework assignments, continued to work on our ABC memory verses, stitched some more, talked - talked - talked, and closed out the class in a circle of prayer.


Tomorrow I'll post the handout that went with this class.

I have searched and searched for the pattern I used for the teenage girls to embrodery on their pillow cases as part of the 'Dorcas' class, and  can't find it.  However, this one is very similiar!  

Each girl in the class traced the design onto their pillowcase and then started the embrodery work. We set aside about 15 minutes of each class period for them to work on their projects.  The girls were not allowed to take them home until after the banquet.

Day 36 of 365 Days of Sharing ... Learning to BEE Like Dorcas, Lesson 2

By patsy norwood © 2008 - 2017 All Rights Reserved


Lesson 2
In lesson 1 we introduced this series on Dorcas by laying the ground work and learning about the city where Dorcas lived along with the circumstances that led up to their being so many widows and orphans in Joppa.

In lesson 2 we talked about the fact that Dorcas was a disciple of Christ, what the difference was between an apostle and a disciple, and how people today become Christians. We took some time and marked in our Bibles the verses showing how the New Testament says people became/become Christians. And of course, we worked on our ABC memory verses and did some more stitching!


Note:  the handout containing the Scriptures we marked on how the New Testament says people became/become Christians is included in our Lesson 2 handout which will be posted tomorrow.

The pattern I used for tracing the bee onto the pillowcases that the girls embroidered will be shared later in the week.

I hope you are enjoying this series, if you have any questions feel 
free to leave them in the comments.
