  6. Why do I want the Holy Spirit? My thoughts 03 26 2020 continues Chan’s Chapter 4 My reason for wanting the Holy Spirit was to become closer to God. I have learned now that it was to sustain you, and give you power for the work of the ministry. 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: (Eph 4:10-13[KJV]) I like how Chan has reveals in his book that it is for “the common good to help people.”[1] I liked his concept of praying a prayer before you begin to help others. Ask God to 1. Speak to us in order to help the people 2. Humble me that they will know that He is God and not us. He is working through us and not us doing the work with pride. I have always thought that it is a good idea to have a mentor to be honest with us, to help us received the truth about ourselves. [1] Francis Chan, Forgotten God.

  9. Let us pray, Father God we thank you for the many many blessings that you have given us in our lives. Father God we thank you for protecting us all the days that we have walked, lived and breath to honor you. Father God we give you all the glory honor and praise for giving your son Jesus for the forgiveness of sin and deliverance and healing. For life in mind, body, soul, and spirit. Father God we placed our lives, in your hands, your word says 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. (Pss. 91:3-7[NIV]) Father God we stand by your Word. Father God we lift up the doctors, nurses, and all of those who are fighting to save lives. Father God we lift up the medical system who you have given the knowledge and hands, to save lives. Father God we lift up the people who are on the front lines, and the first responders, fighting for the lives of others. Father God we lift up our seniors who are sick and fighting for their lives. For they are our natural wisdom, and knowledge of each family, we love them. Father God we pray for our government leaders, and other government leaders who need your wisdom and knowledge in this fight. Father God when we stand with you, we are standing on Holy Ground. Father God send forth the Holy Spirit to heal, comfort, guide, and empower to do your will in this battle. We pray this prayer in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen Please feel free to continue in prayer for this situation.
  10. Are you running the plays in your life, and sharing with others after Sunday’s Worship? My thoughts 03 25 2020 continue I had to ask myself this question. Like Chan, I was excited to get out and do the work of God. As a child I thought that the work was church work, such as singing, being an usher, teaching little children or making the announcement, all had to do with the enter working of the church. So, as I continued to attend church on Sundays it became what I was taught to do. It was not until I had my daughter, that I really began to realize that I wanted more of God. I found myself not having a personal relationship with Him. From there I began to get educated to learn of Him, and His ways. I learned that we are to be stewards for God and his plans for the world. I attended and completed, catechism learning the bible by questions, and answers, Bible College in Biblical Studies, and finally completed the master’s program in Biblical Foundation. Chan talks about education gives you pride, and the feeling of being fearful as well. I realized that these elements had contributed to diminishing my passion in running the plays in my own life as well as sharing with others. Now, I find that I needed some alone time with God, to ask Him what is next. I came across this book through ChristianMom, and I’m beginning to now return to my passion. Chan mention in his book, Revelation chapter 2 where God talks about to the church about getting back to their first love. That passion that we had when we first got saved. When I got saved and came to this site, I had that passion to want to do my part in sharing Jesus with the world, and I started that right here on this site. One of the things that really stuck with me in this chapter is where Chan mentioned Act chapter 4 where Peter, and John were uneducated common men, with the power of the Holy Spirit having that passion to run the plays given by God, and is so need in the world today. The Holy Spirit is how we maintain that passion, with studies, education and do what He has called us to do.
  11. Most People would love to hear the voice of God My thoughts 03 25 2020 Hearing God’s voice was something I desired to hear. I wondered how could that be? How is it possible? After reading and studying the Word of God, I began to hear his voice. I found that His voice had been written in the Holy Bible, and when I have questions, that voice of His is delivered to me through the Holy Spirit. Once hearing his voice, I found the truth about myself. I was happy. But when giving God complete control, hearing his voice was an eye opener. I was happy, but I found that happy wasn’t truly happiness, there was a lot of things I had to change to be transformed into His image. You see changing is not comfortable for the most part. I felt, how life was going I was transitioning to where God wanted me. Even at a time when I thought things were going in the right direction, God showed me that it was time to move forward. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Galatians 5:25 I felt like, hold on, let me live here for a moment. But yet He wants us to learn to take the risk to trust him, and to follow his lead. Learning to following him, and hearing his voice just know the stakes are higher. God has called us to so much more.
  12. My thoughts 03 24 2020 God has an interesting look on experiencing the Holy Spirit, in His Word. I am at a place in my life where I need to get away in the right place and ask God, what is His will for my life again? As I keep following him, and his path for my life. He brings up the point of finding the Holy Spirit, by ministering to the poor. I can admit that at times my focus has been off. When Chan mention the poor, the Holy Spirit spoke directly to me, this scripture. Matthew 5:3-12 King James Version (KJV) 3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. 6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. 7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. 10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. I truly want the Holy Spirit to guide me in all truths. I am His temple. I certainly want to keep in step with Him. Finding that place and time to get alone with him and be prepared to listen and slow to speak, has been my short coming. I pray that God will strengthen me during this time to minister to the poor in spirit, the morn, the meek, those who hunger and thirst, the pure in heart, peace maker and those who are persecuted … Chan’s book is certainly starting off as a reminder of what we are called to do. When I say we, I am included in that, God spoke clearly to me in this case.
  13. Martha, I would like to welcome you to the site. Glad to have you. If there is anything that I can help with, or support you, let me know. Welcome abc
  14. Father God, we give you praise, glory, and honor. Father God, we thank you for loving us and protecting us. Father God, help us, we cry out to you for the forgiveness of sins. Father God, we cry out for your grace, and mercy to be changed to live for you, and to be the light in a dark world. Father God, we pray for this nation, and nations abroad. Father God, we pray for our natural, and spiritual leaders to have wisdom, knowledge to make the right decisions, and let it be godly decisions, concerning the people, and their lives. Father God, thank you for being the source of all of our problems. Father God, we pray for people who are sick, people who don't know you, people who are lost, people who have family members who have died, and people who are suffering spiritually, financially, physically, emotionally, and with careers, and education. Father God, we pray for your people who are weak in the faith, and for those who are strong. That you will cover them with your strength, and the Holy Spirit, that gives power to do your will in their life, and to support in the lives of others. Father God, we give you glory, honor and praise for all you are doing and going to do, to draw souls back to you. We ask that you raise them up to be a nation of believers. We pray this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen. Is there anyone who will stand in agree with me? Please feel free to continue in prayer for this situation.

  16. Welcome to ChristianMom! Celebrating 20 years of Online Fellowship, Friendship and Inspiration for Moms of all ages! This site was started around Mother’s Day back in 2000. As the internet was gaining popularity, I said to my husband - we needed a place online, for Moms of faith to communicate, and support each other. Thanks to my husband he helped me get the site up and running and the forum format was an easy way to organize topics of discussion and for us all to interact! The online world has grown exponentially since then, along with all of our families. I spent many years featuring other writers, authors, bloggers and information on this site, all while never feeling like I quite had enough experience as a Mom to give any of my own advice! I learned through the years that we all have something to gain from each other when we are in the word together and sharing insights and encouragement covered in prayer. I’ve been part of amazing groups of women in regular bible study and these ladies have loved on me and helped shape who I am. They’ve taught me how to be a good friend, a good wife, a good mother, and how to grow in my faith. We’ve been part of many amazing churches through the years with passionate congregations and amazing leaders who’ve challenged us and taught us about real community and how grace and faith in God can reach just next door and around the world. We are so thankful! In the middle of this most recent upgrade of this site, our world has taken an unimaginable turn, something we’ve all really only seen in movies or feared. I wake up every morning in shock, humbled and heartbroken, pushing fear to the bottom of my list and trying to make life as stable as it can be while we take care to stay at home. My heart and mind goes immediately to every individual and family who is in this nightmare first hand and every doctor and nurse who selflessly is giving every ounce of energy to care for those infected. I hope there might be a few who find this site a place of refuge and encouragement, and for those reasons I think for now, it’s worth continuing. I am a wife of 27 years, mother of 3, mother-in-law to one, grandmother to one, and future mother-in-law to one. I have been richly blessed beyond more than I could have dreamed. I don’t have all the answers, but I will attempt to share and encourage you and also lead you to others who will also encourage you and lift you up. -Carla ChristianMom.com
  17. I found this prayer on you version:https://blog.youversion.com/2020/03/a-prayer-for-connection/ Dear God, Being alone is hard. We were created for community, not confinement. But we’re grateful that no matter how alone we may feel, You never leave or forsake us. And, we’re grateful for technology that helps us stay in touch with each other. Today, please remind us that this time of social distancing and isolation will not last forever. Give us the strength to endure this difficult season, and deepen our connection with You and Your people. Empower us with an extra dose of Your love, peace, hope and joy, because we need it. Remind us of Your promises, and please heal our land.
  18. Happy Birthday

It is my hope that some of us can reconnect to share, during this time of the crisis in the world. It is good to be saved, and know that we are under God's government, in his kingdom (Jesus Christ is in us, the hope of glory.)

      That sounds like a great idea. I hoping to get some Christian's music, and start playing. I have been playing since June.

      I am in book three and it is going well. I am going to be in a concert in August, once this situation is over.

      Wonderful, My daughter is doing home work. This is my way of coping with it all. Music and coming back here to help in getting ladies motivated. Is my prayer.

      Thank you for staying the course.
