This Too Shall Pass!!

Whatever You Are Going Through- Walk Through It By Faith, and Not By Sight!!

-We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.
(2 Corinthians 4:8-9)

Hey Neighbor!

Sometimes it seems like we’ve become burdened down with more weight than we can carry, but never forget the our God is a Heavy Load-lifter and a Mind-Regulator, and This Too, Shall Pass!!

Here’s Another Oldie-but- a-Goodie!!

*************************************

It’s been said that as We live this life, We will find that We are either;

Going through troubles..

Just coming out of troubles…

Or about to go through troubles…

For those of You going through today, I would like to Encourage You to Walk through it by Faith, and Not By Sight.

Take a Read through 2 Corinthians Chapter 4:

Paul tells Us that When we go through life’s tribulations; deterioration of the family, divorce and bitter separations, mental and emotional breakdown, financial woes, physical illness and pain, etc., If we will walk through it trusting in, and relying on God, then Our suffering is but a temporary, momentary, affliction…

And This Too Shall Pass!!

No!! Our troubles aren’t going to cease whenever we want them to; it’s not our own timing that’s important, but it’s God’s timing.

-But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.

(Psalms 31:14-15)

Paul says that this current suffering that we are experiencing, in the natural, will produce great gains for Us spiritually, and eternally.

So although we are experiencing suffering in this fleshly tent, and these bodies that we live in are dying and deteriorating daily, Paul reminds Us that the inner man- the Spirit Man- is being refreshed and renewed daily!!

Paul encourages Us, as he reminds us that although there is trouble all around Us…

As we we walk through with God, He will give Us peace…so we’re not stressed-out.

When we are confused and perplexed, He gives us His grace (his kindness, mercy and favor)…so we’re not left in desperation and despair.

When we’re persecuted and it seems we’re fighting battles on every hand, Praise God we’re never forsaken nor defeated, because He causes Us to triumph over Our enemies.

Even when we are weak in the knees with fear and we fall down…it’s the Truth of God’s written Word that renews our Faith and Encourages Us to Get back up and Press On!!

Sometimes life’s roads appear to be rough, and rocky!!

And Yes!! Sometimes those mountains do look insurmountable, but your troubles won’t last always!!

God will give you hinds’ feet!!

And as you journey through these crooked places, with God’s Word in Hand and His Word hidden in Your Heart, you will make spiritual progress and You will make it out alright!!

By Faith, You will reach the summit – leaving your troubles and your sufferings far behind!!

So Be Encouraged Today!!

This Too Shall Pass!!

Trivia Thursday – Name That Prophet!!

-So Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah. The king rose to meet her, bowed to her, sat down on his throne, and caused a seat to be set at his right hand for her, the king“s mother. (1Ki 2:19)

Hey Neighbor!

On (Trivia) Tuesday, We were searching through the Bible for a certain king (Solomon), who had no choice but to execute his misbehaving older brother, Adonijah!!

Adonijah had deceptively sought the assistance of the queen-mom, Bath-Sheba, as he strategically sought to strengthen and exalt himself within the kingdom.

In the lead scripture above, we see where Bathsheba approached her son, Solomon to make this ill-advised request, on the behalf of Adonijah!!

This was not a very wise move on the part of Bathsheba…and although Solomon did not discipline his mother for making this near treasonous request, he did admonish her…for the queen-mom was not operating in the best interest of her king/son.

Now there was another queen-mom, who was indeed striving to be an asset to her son and his kingdom, although he was a defiantly, wicked king.

She had witnessed the great sufferings of his father, and wanted to lend her son some wisdom and advice from his father’s fateful reign as king.

This mother graciously approached her son, recommending that he seek counsel from his father’s ‘tried and true’ seer, regarding the fallout from her misbehaving son’s afternoon of drunkenness and revelry!!

The queen mother had overheard her son’s frantic conversation inside the banquet house…and thus the king was extremely terrified and greatly perplexed with his troubles, so much so that the blood had drained from his face, and his knees had begun to knock!!

When the King’s great and ‘wise’ counsel of men could not help her son to resolve his perplexing problem, mom stepped in with her wise recommendation…

It was time to call ‘The Man of God!!’

Who was this ‘Tried and true’ Prophet/Seer that had come so highly recommended by the queen-mom??

Can You Name This Prophet??

Nuggets Of Wealth for Life and Health: Probiotic Rich, Fermented Tomatoes!!

Hey Neighbor!

Your Health Must Matter Most To You!!

I am bringing in my tomatoes for canning!!

Last year was my first trial at canning, because I had cucumbers and tomatoes growing out of my ears!!

I had no idea what to do with my abundant harvest, so I called my Aunts, but nobody knew how to can.

So I was forced to learn on my own!

I bought my mason jars, which were very limited in quantities in most stores, so I just ordered them from Amazon!!

I also found this wonderful website called, Mary’s Nest


Mary teaches several different canning techniques, but I particularly like this fermented tomatoes recipe because it’s very rich in probiotics (good bacteria) and therefore great for gut health!!

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4fXPKaWjK60&feature=youtu.be


Anyway, I adapted the recipe to my own preferences…go and check her out on YouTube to get your canning tutorial and the full details for your exact measurements!!

My ingredients:

Cherry Tomatoes (from my garden)
Organic Green onions
2 tablespoons of Redman’s Real Salt (no table salt)
Fresh garlic (diced)
Basil (from my garden)
And fresh Rosemary (from my garden). Filtered/Spring Water (no chlorinated tap water)

Basic Instructions:

Clean your jars and Wash your veggies, remove the vines and poke your tomatoes with a toothpick, alternate your ingredients (as you add them to your jar)

Pour in your Filtered water to cover all ingredients and close it with a metal canning lid or plastic lid!!

Fermenting Process:

You will want to let your canned tomatoes sit out on your countertop for 2-3 days (out of direct sunlight) so that the good bacteria can begin to eat the natural sugars in your tomatoes and grow. Preferable temp in your kitchen would be 65-72 degrees)

Because your ferment is going to begin to release gasses (CO2), You will need to burp it (once daily) while it sits on your countertop. You should begin to see bubbles moving about your jar!!

***This type of canning is not shelf stable, and must be refrigerated after several days!!

Probiotic Rich, Fermented Tomatoes 😋

I like to place a towel underneath my jar, because sometimes your fermenting liquid will begin to release and leak, as the pressure builds!!

If you like, taste your ferment after 2-3 days, then refrigerate it for up to two weeks. It will continue to ferment in your refrigerator, although much more slowly.

If you can wait those 14 days before digging in, you will be amazed at the flavor!!

(Your refrigerated ferment can last up to six months)

Now, I also grow my own lettuce, so when I’m ready for a salad, I just spoon over some of my fermented tomatoes, add some olive oil, and cracked pepper, and I’m in heaven for just a few moments!!

Give it a try, even if you have to go and purchase your own ingredients…you won’t regret it and your tummy will certainly bless you💕

Trivia Tuesday- Name That King!!

-While there was war between the houses of Saul and David, Abner was making himself strong in the house of Saul. Now Saul had a concubine whose name was Rizpah, daughter of Aiah. And Ish-bosheth said to Abner, Why have you gone in to my father“s concubine? (2 Samuel 3:6-7)


In the lead scripture above, we find Abner, stretching forth his control and authority over Saul’s younger son, Ishbosheth…by taking claim and possession of the (deceased) King’s concubine.


You see, after the death of Saul and Prince Jonathan…Abner, Saul’s uncle and military commander, sat Ishbosheth upon his (deceased) father’s throne, in Israel.

In reality, Uncle Abner was the mastermind and the actual figure of authority in Israel, while Ishbosheth merely sat upon the throne…in (Saul’s) name only!

This power-play of Abner’s, further humbled and humiliated a powerless Ishbosheth, and it also publicly revealed the gaps in this young king’s armor.

Now, in a similar story in the Bible, we find that another close relative of a freshly anointed king (this time an older brother) has also made a power-play to strengthen and exalt himself by using their (deceased) father’s concubine as his power pawn ♟

Although this princely brother had been next in-line to the throne, he had failed to receive enough public support to successfully reign in their father’s stead.

So, in his second attempt towards the throne, the king’s older brother approached the queen mom, peaceably, and requested to marry this concubine.

When word of this older brother’s petition reached the king’s ears, the king quickly recognized his big brother’s clever request for what it truly was…yet another strategic, attempt to usurp the throne!!

This angry king had previously shown his big brother great mercy, but this time, he must strengthen himself, and for the surety of his throne, the king must remove and execute this Usurper!!

******************************************

Who was this (older) Brother/Usurper??

And

Who Was This King??

Bible Brain Teaser (Find 30 Books) Answers!!

I forgot to Post Your Answers to This Brain Teaser!!

******************************************

Can you find thirty (30) books of the Bible in the paragraph, below? Actually there are thirty-one (31) Bible names if you can find the variant of one Old Testament prophet.

********************************************

This is a most remarkable puzzle. It was found by a gentleman in an airplane seat pocket, on a flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu, keeping him occupied for hours. He enjoyed it so much, he passed it on to some friends. One friend from Illinois worked on this while fishing from his john boat. Another friend studied it while playing his banjo. Elaine Taylor, a columnist friend, was so intrigued by it she mentioned it in her weekly newspaper column. Another friend judges the job of solving this puzzle so involving, she brews a cup of tea to help her nerves. There will be some names that are really easy to spot. That’s a fact. Some people, however, will soon find themselves in a jam, especially since the book names are not necessarily capitalized. Truthfully, from answers we get, we are forced to admit it usually takes a minister or a scholar to see some of them at the worst.
Research has shown that something in our genes is responsible for the difficulty we have in seeing the books in this paragraph. During a recent fund raising event, which featured this puzzle, the Alpha Delta Phi lemonade booth set a new record. The local paper, The Chronicle, surveyed over 200 patrons who reported that this puzzle was one of the most difficult they had ever seen. As Daniel Humana humbly puts it, “The books are all right here in plain view hidden from sight.” Those able to find all of them will hear great lamentations from those who have to be shown. One revelation that may help is that books like Timothy and Samuel may occur without their numbers. Also, keep in mind, that punctuation and spaces in the middle are normal. A chipper attitude will help you compete really well against those who claim to know the answers. Remember, there is no need for a mad exodus; there really are 30 books of the Bible lurking somewhere in this paragraph waiting to be found. God Bless.

Super-Faith Sunday Riddle/ Who Am I??

Hey Neighbor!

Here She Is!!

Your ‘Super-Faith-Full Female’ of the Week!!

Can You Solve My Riddle and Guess Who She Is??

********************************************

It was difficult to bear the loss of my spouse
‘Til I crossed the threshold, and found peace in His house
Waiting on the Lord made my long-widowed years more bearable
As I communicated for God, not by fables, nor parable
But instead, I spoke with the conviction of a ‘faith-full’ and fervent witness.
My years of fasting were for spiritual fortitude and never for fitness
Day and night I worshipped the Lord, as I sheltered in place,
Anticipating the day I would behold his sweet face.
I refused to go home, much like Bathsheba’s Uriah
My testimony was such: I had seen The Messiah!!

And Can You Name His Nephew/Commander?

*******************************************

Answer: King (Uncle) David

Nephew/Commander: Joab

Jesus Has A Warrant Out For Your Salvation!!

-Or what woman, having ten [silver] drachmas [each one equal to a day’s wages], if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and look carefully and diligently until she finds it-
(Luke 15:8)

Hey Neighbor!

Jesus was an Awesome Story Teller….

In Luke 15:8-10, He Tells a Parable about a woman who had lost a coin…Well this woman had obviously misplaced one of her silver coins and had begun to despair over it. Now when she realized that one of the coins was missing, it must have been in the evening time, because scripture tells us that she needed light…so she lit a lantern.

You see…this woman couldn’t rest because she needed to locate the thing that she had lost…and she needed the light to help her navigate her way through the maze of furniture, in the darkness.

So She began to clean her house…Can you picture her sweeping the dirt floor, bending down to look underneath the furniture and peering behind the doors, emptying baskets, and wiping the dust from the tables. We don’t know how long the woman searched…but it is quite possible that she was up all night…she was steadfast and determined to spot out her lost coin of silver…when suddenly, her eyes finally noticed the sparkle of the coin, reflected by the light. She had found it!!…and what did she do??

She ran to her neighbors houses, awaking them…to share the Good News, so that they might come to celebrate this joyous occasion!!

-And when she has found it, she summons her [women] friends and neighbors, saying, Rejoice with me, for I have found the silver coin which I had lost-
(Luke 15:9)

The thing that was lost..was now found!!

***********

So what’s so significant about this story??

Well Jesus has been looking for You…He has been shining His Light of Salvation out for You!!

Stop Running!!

Stop Hiding!!

Let Him Find You!!

And Let His Love come upon you…

because No matter what you’ve done in the past…

…and no matter how long you’ve been running from Him…

Jesus Still Wants You!!

Let His Holy Spirit come in and Clean-Up Your Spiritual House – From top to bottom – From the inside out!!

Receive Jesus Today – Pray This Prayer:
I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He took on ALL of my sins on the Cross at Calvary and died in my place.

Jesus, I welcome you into my heart and want You to be the Lord of my Life. I believe that today I have received Your Holy Spirit, as a security deposit and as a guarantee of My Salvation!!

Jesus, Thank You for Saving Me!!

*******
If You Just prayed this prayer…Guess What??

You Are Saved!!

And….Now there is a celebration going on in heaven!!

And…This Party is Just For You!!!

So Go!!…Run and Tell Your Neighbors that You have been Saved…and invite them to Your Salvation Party!!

Guess What…Jesus Will Be There!!

-Even so, I tell you, there is joy among and in the presence of the angels of God over one [especially] wicked person who repents (changes his mind for the better, heartily amending his ways, with abhorrence of his past sins-
(Luke 15:10)

Trivia Tuesday – Name That Prophet!!

– And He said to me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, You know (Ezekiel 37:3)

Hey Neighbor!

In our lead Scripture, we see that The Lord God had set Ezekiel down in the midst of the valley of dry bones.

It was there that the Lord God commanded Ezekiel to prophesy to the bones, and then the bones came together, and the flesh covered them, but still there was no life in them!!

So The Lord God commanded Ezekiel to prophesy to the breath and spirit, and there the spirit and breath came into the bones and now they lived, and stood upon their feet.👣

Can these dry bones live??

Well, after the hearing of the Word of the Lord, It was revealed to Ezekiel, that they could indeed!!

Now there was another well known prophet who caused a deceased man to stand to his feet…and not because he prophesied, as Ezekiel had done.

But because there remained power and virtue in this prophet’s bones, even after he had been dead and buried, in his own sepulcher.

So much so, that as this (deceased) man was being laid to rest…and as his body was being lowered into the ground…it made contact (in the grave) with this Old Testament prophet’s bones…and immediately, the recently deceased man was revived, and also stood to his feet👣

Which Old Testament Prophet’s Bones were these?
