I could have named this entry “Do not believe everything you hear”. But in this case I think it is more or less the same.
We are given one life here on earth. It is up to each and every one of us to do what we can to make something out of the time given. Use the time carefully and not foolishly. You do not know what is ahead, or whom you might meet. Who knows if the person you pass is an angel. Genesis 18:1-5 The Lord appeared to Abraham near the large trees of Mamre. Abraham was sitting at the entrance to his tent. It was the hottest time of the day. 2 Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. So he quickly left the entrance to his tent to greet them. He bowed low to the ground.
3 He said, “My lord, if you are pleased with me, don’t pass me by. 4 Let me get you some water. Then all of you can wash your feet and rest under this tree. 5 Let me get you something to eat to give you strength. Then you can go on your way. I want to do this for you now that you have come to me.”
Think about that. Who knows what else you might find or whom you might meet. Remember to read your bible together with God and other people, so you may grow in your faith.
Gods blessingsby Lady Birgitha
Fall has come yet again to my neck of the woods. This morning I saw the mist lifting and the sun shining through the thin vail. It was a magical moment of pure beauty. I could feel God close by, it was so intense those short seconds that I looked but what I felt was not only his presence but his breath. I know it might sound crazy but that was the feeing I had. That is how close I felt to Abba for a few seconds.
But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.
We get one life here on earth. Make the best of it and choose carefully, because how you choose here will determind where you spend eternety. God will not make that choice, just as he did not make any other choices for you. Only you can make that choice in how you live here and now. Tomorrow has not yet been written, so do not leave what you can do today wait, because you do not know.
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.by Lady Birgitha
