After Being Forgiven Much; and We Do Not Forgive

Truth in Palmyra

Great thought on forgiveness from the Broken Pieces blog. If Jesus is our example, and He forgave it ALL, why do we struggle to forgive even small things sometimes?


As a man, and as all who will admit and confess to it we need forgiveness from our transgressions.  God has forgiven me more than I could ever repay.  How can I not forgive another who owes me very little?  Or owes me nothing?

The Basis of Prevalence in Prayer

He Hath Said

The effectual fervent prayerof a righteousman availeth much. – James 5:16

Prayer is the shadow of the decrees of the Eternal. God has willed such a thing, and He makes His saints to will it, and express their will in prayer. It is written, “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” It is not said that He will give the desire of His heart to every Jack and Tom; but you must first delight in the Lord, and when your mind finds all her joy in God then it is clear that God and you, as far as it can be, are standing on the same plane and moving in the same direction, and now you shall have the desire of your heart because the desire of your heart is the desire of God’s heart. Character, as much as…

Are We Like a Naughty Child?

He Hath Said

Youask and do not receive, because youaskamiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. – James 4:3

To refuse to praise unless we have our own way is great presumption, and shows that like a naughty child we will sulk if we cannot be master. I might illustrate the willfulness of many a supplication by that of a little boy who was very diligent in saying his prayers, but was at the same time disobedient, ill-tempered, and the pest of the house. His mother told him that she thought it was mere hypocrisy for him to pretend to pray. He replied, “No, mother, indeed it is not, for I pray God to lead you and father to like my ways better than you do.” Numbers of people want the Lord to like their ways better, but they do not intend to follow the ways of…

From The Darkness Into The Light

Dear Blogger friends, as I say goodnight I am thinking about what happened today when the Holy Spirit told me to wake my husband and tell him I knew. I knew that what he did hurt me to the deepest. I will give him a chance to give himself completely to God.

ONlY with God, scars are healed and nothing appears but a little, very small reminder of the pain, a little pink spot.

With this, I want to thank all that prayed for me. PLEASE keep us both in your prayers. Our future is in God’s hands. We will see..

later,

Pat.

The Myth of a Christian Nation

Where Living Begins

Like shoes, restaurants, foods, and toilet paper, nations and governments cannot be Christians; individuals are.

Nations may be founded on Christian principles, but that does not make them Christian nations. A Christian is one who has been born again by the Spirit of God through personal faith in Christ Jesus. Despite what people in nations around the world think, neither countries nor governments can be born again.

At Christ’s temptation, Satan took Him to the top of a high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish” (Luke 4:5-6).

The nations of this world – your nation and mine – are under the direct influence of the Evil One. Individual politicians may…
