1  Fellowship / Just For Women / Christian Homemakers on: January 12, 2007, 02:14:52 PM
How many women on this forum are stay at home wives? I am & we don't have any children. Sometimes I don't feel I'm doing enough for us. I'm disabled because of a wreck(headinjury) & can't work. Am I the only one who feels this way?
My husband was layed off right before Christmas. Right now it's a struggle for us but family are doing all they can to help. I KNOW the Lord has something better for my husband to do than what he was doing. All I can do for us is pray & trust the Lord that He has everything in His control in His time, not ours. I try not to worry about making ends meet because I know He'll provide for us. I'm still human though & still have some that worry nature in me.
I reckon I just want to know if I'm alone in this feeling of not doing enough.
(ha,ha)Pardon my accent, I'm from the South.
2  Theology / Debate / Re: Tithing - Top 10 reasons I don't on: January 12, 2007, 01:15:41 PM
In my thinking, tithing is not just money. It's giving your firstfruits of everything. Giving money but also your time. Just giving of yourself. Christians should give w/a cheerful heart. Not because you have to but because you want to. The more you give the more blessings you recieve.
So True!!
KJV Matthew 6:19-21
 19.  Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
 20.  But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
 21.  For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
3  Theology / Prophecy - Current Events / Re: D. James Kennedy suffers major heart attack on: January 10, 2007, 01:47:41 AM
I just checked the update on Dr. Kennedy. He has now been transferred from ICU to a private hospital room. He is alert and receiving physical therapy.
4  Theology / Prophecy - Current Events / Re: D. James Kennedy suffers major heart attack on: January 06, 2007, 10:54:05 PM
I've went to the Coral Ridge Website & this is the latest on D. James Kennedy:
On Thursday, December 28, Dr. Kennedy suffered heart arrhythmia leading to cardiac arrest. He was given CPR and admitted to the hospital. He has since improved. On Wednesday, January 3 he underwent a procedure to implant a pacemaker/defibrillator and continues to make progress.
I'm so glad that he's doing better. I enjoy listening to him Sunday mornings before I goto church.I believe what he stands for.
5  Fellowship / Testimonies / My Testimony on: January 06, 2007, 10:29:49 PM
I was saved at age 13. I loved going to church. I was in the choir, GA's......everything you could imagine. That same year the church was taking a trip to South Carolina. I wanted to go but Mom did not have the money. I cried & prayed for a while. One day I received a phone call. The person on the other end told me my name was picked & my way was payed to go. I was so excited & happy. God was working miracles in my life then.
The next year I started backsliding some. I was going into my defiant & rebellious teenage years. That went on for several years. I was not going to church or listening to my parents, as most teens do. I didn't get into drugs, even though I was around people who did use. I never saw the big deal about it. I did drink though. I didn't start that till I was 16. I started dating this guy at 17 & things got serious between us. Well the summer of the next year I had a job. Still living at home, I was using his car to get to work & back home, during the week. I had no car. I was going to work one morning. I stopped w/my turn signal on going to make a left hand turn, turning into a gas station. I was waiting on a oncoming mini-van. I was rear-ended & pushed in the other lane, in front of the mini-van & they hit me in the side. I was driving his 1988 Camaro.
I don't remember much of it. The next thing I knew I was in rehab in the hospital. Mom told me I was in ICU for 14 days & Recovery for week. The wreck happened in July by the time I realized anything it was August. I do remember one thing while I was out. I was some place going up some stairs. I saw a really bright light & a man standing on the right hand side. I was told it was not my time. To go back. That one moment in my life changed everything for me. When I told my Mom she cried. I was only 18 years old. I had a broken pelvis, punctured lung, tore liver, broken ribs & a collar bone & a head injury. God gave me the strength I needed to learn to walk, learn to use my arm, & learn to eat again. I spent 3 months in the hospital rehab then another 3 months in outpatient rehab. I don't look back at that as bad times though. I had really great times then. I am glad it happened. My eyes needed opening. That is what it took.
A year after I got out of the hospital my boyfriend broke up w/me. I, actually, needed that too. We both were going down very different paths. That's another long story that I'm not wanting to get into. Anyway, PRAISE BE TO THE LORD that things are great in my life now as long as He is in it. I'm married to a wonderful man that I love very much. I can't do much work due to my problems from the wreck but that just gives me more time to praise Him & study His word! AMEN!!
Well I hope this testimony helps some. Life is too short as it is. Going down a road more traveled can just make that much more shorter w/regret.

Luke 2:14  Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.[/pre]

Do you think that this is a glimpse into how the one world religion will come about? In my opinion, we're seeing more & more of the "Last Days" prophecy coming true.
7  Entertainment / Animals and Pets / Re: Cats are Evil! on: January 04, 2007, 03:41:04 PM
I have two cats (Lincoln, and Autumn). I love them, but they're a struggle to deal with from time to time.

I couldn't get both of them at the same time. And eventually Autumn beat me to the sandwitch.  Sad
Would it of been easier to just grab the sandwhich, LOL Grin

I figured this one was going to come out.

How could it not. I don't feel good about this at all. It makes me a little nervous.
9  Fellowship / You name it!! / Government on: January 04, 2007, 02:18:45 AM
Hey All! I was just reading a on-line news paper & on Thursday Rep.-elect Keith Ellison, D-Minn. will be sworn in by the Quran. Once owned by Thomas Jefferson. I'm not sure how to feel about this. I would really like to know how others feel. Undecided This is a little confussing to me. I thought that they could only use the Holy Bible for that or has the 1st Amendment struck again. Here's the link if anyone wants to read it:
10  Theology / Debate / Re: Once Saved Always Saved??? on: January 02, 2007, 12:26:52 PM
HI! I agree with the "once saved, always saved". To me, to think you could lose your salvation is saying that there is a higher power that can take it away. I think we all know that there is not anything more powerful than the Lord, Himself. Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.(KJV)
11  Fellowship / You name it!! / Re: I sure wish Jesus would come REAL soon! on: December 21, 2006, 09:26:39 AM
Thanks for making me feel welcome. I love the LORD! He has done so much in my life!   Grin
12  Fellowship / You name it!! / Re: I sure wish Jesus would come REAL soon! on: December 20, 2006, 02:11:50 PM
[ My motives, I confess, are somewhat selfish

I understand the feeling. I have family & a good husband, but no children. Even with all that you can still get lonely.
I pray He hurries, too. My "selfish" motives are I don't like what the world has turned in to. Today I have more fear than contentment living in this world. Everywhere you look there is sadness. In my heart, though, I have to stay strong. Jesus tells us:
God did not give us the  spirit of fear, but of power, love and sound mind(2 Tim 1: 7). I hope you have a Blessed CHRISTmas. This is what it's all about.......CHRIST!!
