It’s Thanksgiving!! – Send up High Praises to God

Let the saints be joyful in glory:
let them sing aloud upon their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
and a twoedged sword in their hand;-
(Psalms 149:5-6)

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

Hey Neighbor!

We’re still continuing our ‘oldie’ series on, ‘Will Jesus Find You Faith-Full?”

Today’s post was written many years ago. It was Thanksgiving, and I was recovering from the flu!!

There was still pain and weakness on the external woman, but the Spirit of the Lord was very vibrant and faith-fully strong 💪🏾 within!!

Praise God!!

Here is Your Oldie for This Thanksgiving Weekend!!

Enjoy🤩

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

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I found myself singing upon my sick bed last night as I read about Paul and Silas. I came home Tuesday night with a headache and aches and pains after our Bible Study class at the Center. I got into my bed, immediately…hoping that I could take my herbs and sleep it off and be ready to do my grocery shopping on Wednesday…but that didn’t happen. So my daughter, Allie made the grocery list and Hubby took care of the shopping on Wednesday afternoon. Praise God! I am feeling better today…the aches and pains are gone, but the headache still lingers…Pray for Me!

So as I was laying there, in pain….reading about Paul and Silas (Acts 16:25-37)….and how they praised God through their pain…. I opened my mouth in song, like they did in the inner prison.

Paul and Silas had been falsely accused and had been beaten by the Romans, with rods…so terribly that Verse 23 says they received many blows..(somebody lost count.) Then, they were thrown into the lowest part of the prison.

So here they are…in a cold, damp, dark (pitch black) dungeon…locked in stocks. Now I always imagined stocks to be shackles and chains…but Nope! Paul and Silas were bound into a wooden apparatus that locks the feet down at the ankles into a very small opening, as to prevent them from escaping. OUCH!!

Yet, at midnight, when they could have been resting, these “Faith-Full” guys who were…bloody, bruised, and dreadfully sore…and locked down in stocks…started praying.
Then they broke out in song, with something like…
“Let the Church say Amen!”

WOW!! Really??

Now Paul and Silas were not whispering…remember, they were in the inner prison (dungeon) and Verse 25 tells us that the other prisoners could hear them praising, all the way from the dungeon. So Paul and Silas were kicking up some “High Praises!” Wow!!

Paul and Silas prayed and worshipped, loudly till God sent a ‘Great’ Earthquake…shaking the foundations of the prison…opening the prison doors, and loosing all the prisoners from their shackles and stocks.

God had sent Paul and Silas to Rome to Preach the Good News about Jesus Christ, yet the Romans had locked them up to hinder the Word from going forth. But God used this opportunity to save the whole jailhouse! Notice that when the prisoners were loosed, they didn’t break out in a mad escape…The prisoners were in Awe of God and had probably chimed in with the second verse,
“God has Spoken, Let the Church say Amen!”

So as the story goes, the jailer (who had Paul and Silas locked in stocks) was converted and baptized…and Paul and Silas were released from Prison by the magistrates, the next day.

So…When Jesus returns, Will He find You “Faith-Fully” Praising….like Paul and Silas??

Will you press past Your pain and give God His Glory, even when life has dealt you a bad hand??

Will you press past Your pain and give God His Glory, even when your body is broken down and racking with pain??

Psalm 149 says we can cut through the pain with our Praise and our Two-edged sword…that Sword is the Word of God!!

I pray that You will be blessed on This Thanksgiving day as you share this day with Your Family and Friends.

Don’t forget to Give God His Glory Today!!

Let the Family Break out in Song…Sending up A High Praise to Our “Faith-Full” God!!

Till Tomorrow,

God Loves You and So Do I!!

Trivia Thursday – Name That Disciple!!

But whenever you go into a town and they do not receive and accept and welcome you, go out into its streets and say, Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet we are wiping off against you; yet know and understand this: the kingdom of God has come near you (Luke 10:10)

Hey Neighbor!

All is well!!

And today, I have another Bible Trivia Question for you!!

In the text above, We see where Jesus instructs his disciples to shake the dust (from that city) off of their ‘peace shoes’ as they departed from a city or town where the ‘Good News of Peace’ was not welcomed, nor received.

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

Who were the first ‘disciples’ of Christ who ‘shook the dust from their feet,’ refusing to even carry forth the dust from such a town of unwelcoming persecutors??

Can You Name These (2) Disciples??

(Please include Scripture and Verse)

Super-Faith Sunday Riddle – Who Was She??

Hey Neighbor!


It’s Sunday, November 6th!!

Can You Solve My Riddle??

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

Her husband was a man of valor and might
Who delivered forty years, making Israel’s burdens light
It was her dad who inspired him to fight, and he valiantly won this young girl’s hand
He was a good husband; even consenting when his wife went to her daddy, asking him for land
She was not doubtful, nor discontented, like the woman who Jesus had met at the well,
But was bold and quick to ask him to quench the exhaustive thirst in the land where she’d dwell
And because she was a faith-full daughter, consenting to wed the young warrior, and because she failed to complain
He blessed her with double: two springs that freely flowed, forever satisfying the thirst within his daughter’s parched territory and terrain.

Solution Saturday Answer: The Widow of Zarephath

– For thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: The jar of meal shall not waste away or the bottle of oil fail until the day that the Lord sends rain on the earth (1Kings 17:14)

Hey Neighbor!

This week, our CareBibleStudy Class searched through the Bible for the name of a certain King’s wife, and the blind prophet, who revealed sorrowful news concerning the queen’s sickly son…That was on Tuesday!!

Now On Thursday, we were searching for a certain king, who was so desperate for a word from God, that he disguised himself and partook in a seance, in attempts to communicate with the Lord’s deceased prophet!!

And of course, we searched for our super-faith-full female: a widow with a heart for God, who obediently sacrificed what she had in her cupboard, to feed the man of God!!

This Woman was: The Faith-full Widow of Zarephath!!

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

https://carenrcinesl.wordpress.com/2022/10/30/super-faith-sunday-riddle-who-was-she-5/

And just in case, you missed Sunday’s Riddle, here is that link, and the riddle recap!! ******************************************

She heard a Word from The Lord, He was saying, ‘Sustain.’
Though her own provision was nil, cause the Lord withheld rain
She was not a woman of strength, she was wearied and weak
Yet she gave what she had, to attend to the meek
God had sent his servant, asking her to provide
When she’d given up hope, she presumed they would die
How could God say ‘sustain,’ with just a handful of meal
Yet He showed himself mighty through this man from Israel
Though death did arrive, and long was the drought
God’s provision was continuous, and she never ran out.

Will Jesus Find You “Faith-Full??”

-However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [persistence in] faith on the earth-
(Luke 18:8)

Back in 2014, I did a series on some faith-full folks from the Bible, and I also included a story of faith about my girlfriend, Erica.

Here’s The intro to the series and Faith-full, Erica’s Story.

Enjoy!!

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

Hebrews 11:6 tells us that without Faith, we cannot please The Lord….So when Jesus comes back, will He find us and say…
Well done my good and “Faith-Full’ servant!??

This week we are going to look at a few “Faith-Full” bible characters.
Now just to remind you…these bible characters were real people with real problems…just like you and me…but they overcame by faith…and so do We!! Hallelujah!!

These are some of the bible characters we will look at this week:

Tuesday’s Lesson: Joseph
-Genesis 39-41

Will Jesus come back and find you faithful ‘at work’ like Joseph??
-Even though he was the only God fearing believer on the job.

Wednesday’s Lesson: Paul and Silas – Acts 16:16-17

Will Jesus come back and find you like Paul and Silas?? Imprisoned and yet ‘faithfully’ praising

Thursday’s Lesson: Zacchaeus
-Luke 19:1-9

Will Jesus come back and find you
like Zacchaeus??
Faithfully, Sitting up on the highest tree branch trying to
‘Get a Glimpse of Jesus.’

Friday’s Lesson: Elijah
– 1 Kings 18-19

Will Jesus come back and find you running like Elijah??….Running so faithfully for God, that you’ve outpaced the King’s horses and chariots??

Monday’s Lesson (today): My friend, Erica
-ESL/2014

Will Jesus come back and find you like my friend, Erica?? Faithfully, on her way to bible study after a car accident??

Here’s her story:

Erica was on her way to Tuesday night Bible Study at her church. She was driving down the highway with her daughter in the passenger’s seat, when another driver sideswiped her car, leaving her spinned-out in the road!!

Praise God they were unharmed, physically, but they were both in-shock, and shaken-up. The police officer came onto the scene, did his job, and gave her a copy of the paperwork.

Again, they were physically unharmed, but the passenger’s side mirror was now half gone and the glass mirror was shattered into pieces.

Now, Erica was still a nervous wreck, but praising God that He spared their lives; and her daughter was still visibly upset, but getting it together when the officer sends her on her way.

Now, Does Erica turn the car around to go back home??

No!!

She keeps her car in the east-bound lane heading for her church!!

Wow!!

What kind of Faith is that??….And Where can I get some!!

‘Cause I would have taken my wimpy, whiny tail AND my baby back home where I felt safe…as we used to say, ‘with the quickness!’

I would have been pressing to get home, where my husband would be, to hold me and tell me it was all going to be alright..

But this girl stays on the designated path…Still driving and praying and wiping tears as she looks, from time to time, over at her daughter and the remnants of the side mirror.

She presses to get her ‘Faith-Full’ tail to the House of The Lord…her Strong Tower!!

-The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the [consistently] righteous man [upright and in right standing with God] runs into it and is safe, high [above evil] and strong-
(Prov 18:10)

Hallelujah!!

Erica ran into the church and found safety in the arms of Jesus!!
She also found the loving support and the helping hands of her Pastor and her church family.

That’s how I want to be when Jesus finds me, “Faith-Full” and strong in The Lord…like Erica!!

So, I hope Erica’s story encouraged you today! Don’t let the devil put you on a Detour…Keep Pressing On, By Faith!!

So come back tomorrow for Tuesday’s Lesson where we will look at “Faith-Full,”Joseph. – On the Job, in Egypt, where he was the only believer.

Until then…Remember

God Loves You and So Do I!!

Trivia Thursday- Name That King/Name That Prophet!!

Hey Neighbor!

This week, Our Trivia Tuesday question pointed to a certain wife, Queen Ano, wife of Jeroboam, who disguised herself while enroute to see the Lord’s prophet in Shiloh.

Now, We know that King Jeroboam was an exceptionally wicked king, who made the people in Israel to sin by worshipping the golden calves that he placed in Dan and Bethel, in addition to his many other abhorrent sins!!

Realizing that God had given him up, Jeroboam devised this plan in order to receive a Word from God, via God’s man, via deception!!

King Jeroboam had advised his wife to disguise herself, hoping that Ahijah would prophesy good news concerning their sickly son, but this plot of deception, and Ano’s false identity were both revealed to the blind prophet, Ahijah, by The Lord God!!

This story reminds me of another king in Israel, who also put on a disguise and sought a word from a dead prophet, because God had also given up on him, and refused to talk him!!

*******************************************
Can You Name This King??

Can You also Name That (Dead) Prophet??

Nuggets Of Wealth For Life and Health – Fermented Garlic, Infused in Honey🍯

-And He said to me, Son of man, eat this scroll that I give you and fill your stomach with it. Then I ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth (Ezekiel 3:3)


Hey Neighbor!

Your Health Must Matter Most To You!!

It’s cold and flu season, so now is the time to prepare your home remedies and keep them on hand, just in case!!

My #1 staple to survive the winter is a fermented garlic infused in honey!! 😋

Here are your ingredients:
Fresh Garlic and Raw/Local Honey

And that’s it!!

It’s so easy to make; just smash your garlic cloves with a large knife and remove the peels.

Toss those smashed individual cloves into your mason jar, and pour enough honey over them to cover everything.

Stir it well and seal your jar tightly!!

Instead of shaking the contents, I find that it’s much easier to invert my well sealed jar several times throughout the day, so that everything continues to mix and integrate.

You will need to burp your jar daily, because things are going to get bubbly, as the garlic ferments and feeds on the natural sugars in the honey!!

You can keep your container in a cool dark place, after one week, where it can fully ferment for up to 30 days; but if you’re like me, you’re going to be in this jar nonstop, after 7 days!!

I put garlic in nearly everything, anyway, so I am definitely a garlic lover, but even I can’t eat it straight…it’s just too poweful!!

But after a week, this stuff tastes great and it makes the honey taste better than it did before…and of course the added benefits to this stuff is that it is great for the gut, it’s anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and also anti-inflammatory!!

It doesn’t get any better than this!!

You will be able to eat the cloves, without pain and suffering…and you can add the honey to your hot tea, steel cut oatmeal, and/or add it to your homemade salad dressing!!

However you decide to use your ferment, each time you indulge, you will be boosting your immunity and warding off the effects of cold and flu season!!

Enjoy!!

Trivia Tuesday- Name That Prophet/Name That Wife!!

-Now a day before Saul came, the Lord had revealed to Samuel in his ear, Tomorrow about this time I will send you a man from the land of Benjamin, and you shall anoint him to be leader over My people Israel….(1Samuel 9:15)

Hey Neighbor!


In the lead scripture above, we see where The Lord forewarned Samuel, the Prophet, of the coming of a man, who would soon become the first anointed king of Israel.

Saul had come seeking the prophet/seer, out of concern for his father (Kish’s) lost donkeys.

We learn that Samuel was pleased to share this good news, and good fortune with Saul, as he poured the anointing oil over his head, and as he kissed Saul, the ‘anointed’ king.

Now much later in Israel, a woman would also be found seeking The Lord’s prophet, in Israel.

This woman was the wife of an ‘anointed’ king, who was dressed in such a way, as to disguise her identify.

This woman had come, seeking the prophet, as to learn the fate of her very sick son.

Now although she was dressed ‘incognito,’ this prophet, who was blind, identified the woman as the king’s wife, as soon as he heard her footsteps!!

This was because the Lord had forewarned the prophet of this woman’s upcoming arrival into Shiloh.

Now unfortunately the prophet was charged with some very burdensome news for the king’s wife; and thus, the man of God went on to prophesy the immediate death of the woman’s child, upon her return to her own city!!
********************************************

Who was this (blind) Prophet, that was charged with such heavy news??

And who was this woman/wife, who had come to the man of God, dressed ‘incognito?’
