MERRY CHRISTMAS


Monday, December 14, 2009

Wow! christmas is here!!!

Wow! Christmas really is here! But doesn't it seem like you just don't have the right heart for christmas time all the time? I mean, I truly don't have a nice, helpful, loving, giving heart, all throughout the year, And I know other people don't either. For example, "Will you please let me go to the movies with you?" sally asks Jill and Jodi. "No, not to day" says Jill. "Oh, come one Jill, It's christmas!"
I mean why not say any ordinary day "Oh, come on it's October 14th!"  I mean truly, why can't everyone have a giving heart all year, not just around christmas or holidays! 
Well, that's the heart part, but what about the getting and getting part? All Christians know that christmas is about giving, not getting. Even little kids are getting the point about Giving at Christmas and the Christmas heart. For instance, I teach small little classes for my younger sister every monday, and this week I told her to write a poem that is about Christmas or Winter. This is what she wrote:
All about Christmas
By: Mallory Madison 
Age: 8
Christmas is fun, 
Christmas is fine, 
But do you know what Christmas is all about?
Christmas is about God's son, Jesus.
Jesus is the Christ,
God Sent his son to die for us,
It's not about the presents, it's about the Heart.

Isn't that just adorable? My sister is so cute!
But, doesn't that just tell you that even little kids know about the heart of christmas!
Even older kids & adults, especially Older kids & adults should set an example for the younger ones that they should have the "Christmas Heart" all year 'round. 

let me know YOUR thoughts on the christmas heart,
Megan

Wonderful Blog, Yet....

... Farewell.

This is a lovely, encouraging blog, but I just don't have the time to keep up on it. I know that I only made around two posts, but I loved the encouraging comments and post on this blog in general.

I will keep following this blog, and maybe I will find the time to join again, but for now, with school, writing, NaNoWriMo and life in general, I am only JUST keeping up with my own blog.

Thank you so much and God Bless you!

Apologies

I am very sorry, but I simply have too many things going on in my life to participate in this blog anymore. I realized this a while ago, but kept it on my dashboard; but the truth of it is, I do not have time to post in any other blog but my own. What with NaNoWriMo, school, activities, and all, I'm sure you all understand.

But I'm very sorry about leaving. :( It's a wonderful blog: I will continue to follow it, read it, etc...but just cannot be a part of it any longer, due to this infernal business. Perhaps when November ends, I'll be able to participate in it once more. Who knows?

Anyways, thank you all...this is an amazing blog. I'm so glad I got to be a part of it.

National day of prayer

I was looking on http://ult-tex.net/counts/index.cgi and I saw a count down banner for NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER I wasn't sure what that was so I did some resherech...


Our National Day Of Prayer countdown banner



Mission

The National Day of Prayer Task Force's mission is to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, mobilizing the Christian community to intercede for America and its leadership in the seven centers of power: Government, Military, Media, Business, Education, Church and Family.

Our Vision and Values

In accordance with Biblical truth, the National Day of Prayer Task Force seeks to:

  • Foster unity within the Christian Church
  • Protect America's Constitutional Freedoms to gather, worship, pray and speak freely.
  • Publicize and preserve America's Christian heritage
  • Encourage and emphasize prayer, regardless of current issues and positions
  • Respect all people, regardless of denomination or creed
  • Be wise stewards of God's resources and provision
  • Glorify the Lord in word and deed

Who We Are and What We Do

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America's leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.

History of the National Day of Prayer>>

Official Policy Statement on Participation of "Non-Judeo-Christian" groups in the National Day of Prayer:

The National Day of Prayer Task Force was a creation of the National Prayer Committee for the expressed purpose of organizing and promoting prayer observances conforming to a Judeo-Christian system of values. People with other theological and philosophical views are, of course, free to organize and participate in activities that are consistent with their own beliefs. This diversity is what Congress intended when it designated the Day of Prayer, not that every faith and creed would be homogenized, but that all who sought to pray for this nation would be encouraged to do so in any way deemed appropriate. It is that broad invitation to the American people that led, in our case, to the creation of the Task Force and the Judeo-Christian principles on which it is based.

Purity


Over the past few days I've been hearing and seeing a lot of stuff about Purity. On the radio, in e-mails, in the Cassie's post on www.faitharoundtheworld.blogspot.com, and many other places. I think it's God calling me/reminding me to be pure. I think I'm going to try hard, stick with it, and be pure.

Thanks,

What Is the World Selling to Girls of Today?

Now brace yourselves, girls, and don't be alarmed with what I'm about to say.

On Saturday my mom bought me a copy of 'Teen Vogue' magazine.

Now, wait, it's not what it seems. First, my mom bought it because she was extremely surprised to find that there was such a thing as a 'Vogue' magazine for teens and, after paging through it herself, she thought that it would be a good teaching experience for me to look though it and see what the world is expecting and selling the teen girls of today.

I sat down on the couch with my wonderful father and for a good forty-five minutes we looked at and discussed *almost* every page. It was so distressing to see the pictures and read the articles. Every other page had some mention of having a boyfriend or a "fling" or "crush" and there was a entire article discussing why "good girls" fall for "bad boys".

The girls posing for most of the pictures and adds were between the ages of 14 and 18, the majority looked to be about 16 years old. They were mostly wearing immodest dress, sensual makeup and many were posing inappropriately with male models.

The world is selling sex to its readers through this magazine. And it was horrible to realize that this is what teenage girls today are reading. Let's just say I did NOT regret throwing the magazine in the recycling when my dad and I were through with it!

During these valuable years of entering adulthood, those young women are focusing on boyfriends, dating, modern fashion and frivolous things of this world instead of working and striving towards the goal Christ has set for us and preparing for their future lives.

Let us purpose to become girls who are different from what the world tells us we should be.
Let us strive to remain pure until the day we marry the man God has chosen for us.

If you agree and share the goals, you may put this award/icon/badge that I made, up on you blog and feel free to pass it on to whomever feels the same way.



If you do take this, I'd love to know so I know that it's being passed along, so, if you could leave a comment, I would greatly appreciate it!

I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on this post.

爱和祝福,- Love and Blessings,

Chip is now in a nursing home with bolts and screws in his leg arm and numerous surgerys to come. He is in great spirits and really looking at the bright side of things. Also the guy he shares a room with just happens to be a pastor, so he is getting more knowledge of God and growing closer to him. Chip is a veteran that served our country and is now living on the streets of New Orleans, no living family and no where to go.

Thanks for God's help during the time since April. Pray for physical strength to do work. He is low on energy and not feeling well. One of the decisions we need to make is whether to move or not, since my income alone is not enough to pay our rent where we are. We have to sign the lease for at least 6 months or pay $80 more for month to month before the end of September or find another place to live that will meet needs and preferably some wants too. Thanks and blessings to all of you who pray." -Carrie; and lastly ...

In March My hearing went out overnight in my left ear (my good ear- I have little hearing in the right ear from childhood) Is had a 3 inch tear in my right rotator cuff repaired the last of April. I have a problem with my right knee- have had two different type injections but it still hurts. I had an MRI done on my head to help determine the cause of my sudden hearing loss. It showed no reason for the loss of hearing- which clears the way for a BAHA External Hearing aide that requires surgury to drill a hole in the skull to place the device in. I am scheduled Tuesday for an MRI on the right knee- tried to have one done last Friday but the machine would not turn on.I am a Breast Cancer Survivor- 13 years come December. I have been blessed so much in my life- but I feel overcome with the number of ailments. Thank You."


**God bless you for caring enough to pray!!!**

What is faith?

1 Timothy 4:12
"Let no man despise thy youth, but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity."


What is faith? Since the name of this blog is 'faith around the world,' I thought it might be good if I did a study on it. Below, I've listed several verses that talk about faith.

Matthew 9:22
But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

John 20:29
Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Acts 15:9
And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.

Romans 3:25
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

Romans 4:9
Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.

Romans 5:1-2
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

1 Corinthians 4:2
Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

2 Corinthians 1:24
Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.

2 Corinthians 5:7
(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)


Faith is mentioned many times in the Bible. In all instances, faith is conveyed as something important, something that is needed for all believers. In Matthew 9:22, a woman was healed simply because she had faith that it would happen.

Acts 15:9, Romans 3:25, Romans 4:9 and Romans 5:1-2 all talk of faith being counted as righteousness, faith justifying us, or our hearts being purified by faith- talking of salvation. 1 Corinthians 4:2 says that faith is required to hold a position in the church. And the last two verses (The ones we will principally be dealing with) show that faith is all we have, truly.

Faith is variously defined as "complete confidence in a person or plan," "loyalty or allegiance to a cause or a person," and "religion: a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny."

Faith in the Bible would be something closer to "A complete, total surrendering of oneself to the reality and power of God."

But how does faith apply to a young woman who has already trusted in God? Does faith have a practical application after salvation? Yes, it does, and this application is contained in the last two verses.

"By faith you stand..." 'Standing' in the Bible is commonly defined as standing on the Word, on principles, on morals, or on God's grace. Without faith in God, we can't do any of those things properly- and without it, we definitely can't stand on God's grace.

Ephesians 3:17-19 "That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God."

From this verse, I gather that without love, or charity, we cannot have faith- and love is, of course, given by the correct spirit and- you guessed it- faith! We have three interdependent attributes that are given to God's people- and only his people.

Thanks Sarah Grace!

Sarah Grace has decided to STOP being and author to Faith Around The World. School is starting up and it was going to be hard for her to post (as it will be for all of us also!) It was such a blessing to have her as an author when we did. So I just wanted to say thanks to sarah grace for being a wonderful author! I do not take the fact that you (sarah grace) decided to stop being an author, because I totally understand, but if you ever want to be an author again I'd be happy to have you!

Thanks Sarah Grace!

Urgent Prayers

Earwen, dear blogger friend that some of you know, Dad is having bypass surgery tomorrow.
As I learned for another blogger this could take 6 to 12 hours. So prayers for their family is very much needed.
Also here sister is having stomach and hip pain, and went to the emergency room.
So PLEASE pray that everything is fine, and that her dad's surgery tomorrow goes well.
Thank you.

Beauty

"3Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. 4Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight." 1 Peter 3:3-4

I love that verse...just thought I'd share it with you :)

Light of the world
You stepped down into darkness.
Opened my eyes, let me see.
Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You're my God
You're altogether lovely
All together worthy,
All together wonderful to me

King of all days
oh, so highly exalted
Glorious in heaven above
Humbly You came
To the earth You created
All for love's sake became poor

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You're my God
You're altogether lovely
All together worthy,
All together wonderful to me

I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross
I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross
I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross
I'll never know how much it cost

Hope you all enjoyed this post!

Thy Word

Thy Word - By: Amy Grant
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.

When I feel afraid,
And think Ive lost my way.
Still, youre there right beside me.
Nothing will I fear
As long as you are near;
Please be near me to the end.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.

I will not forget
Your love for me and yet,
My heart forever is wandering.
Jesus by my guide,
And hold me to your side,
And I will love you to the end.

Nothing will I fear
As long as you are near;
Please be near me to the end.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path.
And a light unto my path.
You're the light unto my path.
Palms 119:105
105 Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light for my path.

The Christian Girl's Guide to being your best!

My older sister Marissa (also an author of this blog) Has this book called "The christian girl's guide to being your best!" I haven't actually read it all but I thought I'd stat sharing some of it with you:

What is being your best?
Trust in the Lord with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. ~Proverbs 3:5-6

Story:
Jenna sat beside her parents in the high school gymnasium watching her brother Luke play in the basketball finals. It was a close game with lots of action, but Jenna's mind wasn't on the game itself. She was watching the cheerleaders; especially a girl named Lisa.
Lisa occasionally baby-sat for Jenna when Jenna's parents were going to be out too late for her to be alone. Jenna  looked forward to those nights because Lisa was a lot of fun to be with and she always had lots of ideas for things to do when they were together. Jenna thought Lisa was the prettiest of all the cheerleaders. Plus Lisa was always on the honor roll and she sang solos at their church. Best of all, Lisa was now dating Luke, so Jenna got to see her more often. That night, Jenna was looking forward to going out for pizza with her family and Lisa after the game.
In the last quarter, Luke scored six points and his team took the lead. When the final buzzer went off, Luke's team had won 88-84! Jenna cheered with everyone else, then she went to the car to wait for the others.
As Lisa approached the car, Jenna said, "I hope I an just like you when I get to high school!"
"Why?" Lisa asked as she tossed her pom-poms into the car trunk.
"Because you're pretty, smart, talented and the best cheerleader," Jenna answered.
Lisa laughed. "Thanks for saying that but I really just try to do the best I can with what I have."
"What do you mean? Jenna asked.
"Well, if you do the best you can with what you have for God and for others and for yourself," Lisa answered, "you'll be successful no matter what you do. That's a lesson my grandmother taught me. I've never forgotten it."
"But what if I do my best, and it just isn't good enough?" Jenna asked. " that wouldn't make me vary successful."
"But it would make you successful in God's eyes," Lisa said, climbing into the backseat. "He doesn't judge you by your looks or talents or by how smart you are. He knows what your best is and that's all he wants form you."
Lisa scooted to the middle of the seat as Luke and Jenna got in the other side. "My favorite bible verse is Proverbs 3:5-6," Lisa continued. "It says to trust in the Lord with all your heart, don't depend on your own understanding and remember the Lord in everything you do. Then he will give you success."
"I like that," Jenna said. "Maybe I should memorize the verses so I'll remember them when I'm not feeling good about myself."
"I'll help you with that later," said Lisa as Jenna's dad swung the car into their favorite pizza place. " But right now I want to 'be my best' at devouring a few slices of pizza!"

What is Success?
Lisa gave Jenna a good definition of what success is: doing the best you can with what you have for God, Others and yourself. To be successful in God's eyes, you don't have to be beautiful, have a lot of money or possessions, be a genius or even be popular. And you don't have to be and adult to be successful. You can be a success for God right now, whatever age you are.

how did you do? If you scored 10 or above, good for you! If you want to be a Christian girl at her best, you will use your talents, work hard even when you don't feel like it and always give 100%.

My thoughts:
I guess I need to work on Being my best in everything I only got an 8... I think reading this for the 2nd time  has really let it sink in. I'll be using this as a go through my 3 weeks of camp. (Please comment your thoughts, along with your score.)

I hope this had encouraged you to BE YOUR BEST!
(I'm sorry if I missed spelled any words or for got to add words. I had to type this my self.)

Prayer requests

Sorry I haven't posted anything yet, but today I'd like to ask you all to pray for my Uncle John.
He found out at the beginning of the year that he has a form of cancer called Lymphoma, after he had a lump removed from his side. He has been doing Chemotherapy for a while now.
He has to do a total of 6 treatments, and they are every 3 weeks.
I'm not really sure how many he has to go..... 2 or 3.......?
But Last time we saw him he was starting to loose his hair.
So just pray for him. That the cancer will be cleared up and he can get stronger.

My Uncle John is just so amazing. He is a stronger christian, and he didn't let this stop him form doing things. He still smiles and talks with you, jokes and laughs. He is amazing! I love talking to him about things. =D I hope that I can be like him someday.

Anyway, thats my prayer request.
Oh!
Also my Grandma is having back pains and she has been to the chiropractor 3 times already, and that's not helping very much. So pray that she will feel better soon.

Thanks.

~Marissa

No posting?

As so in my last post I explained about my Bible camp. Well starting June 7th - June 28th I will not be posting anything on any of my blogs. In this post I am also speaking for my sister Marissa. We will be at MWBC. So it will be up to my fellow Co-writers to Be posting those 3 weeks while My sister and I are away. I would also like any of the Co-writers to let me know (by e-mailing me: jennaandme@gmail.com) if they will be gone, too. I may post a few more time before June 7th, But if not: I thank all of my Co-writers, followers, and visitors too. For reading this blog, let it encourage you and lead you to god. 
Thank you all,

Prayers needed...

Hey everybody,

I just want to request prayer for my neighbor, Cory. He went through a divorce recently, and lives alone in this huge house. He's never home, and I can just feel his hurt whenever I'm around him. I would really appreciate prayer for him. Plus he's not a Christian, so imagine the pain he must be feeling right now!

Also, please pray for my aunt, Carrie. She also just went through a divorce (her second one), and she's struggling to raise three kids, as her ex-husband ran off with all her money. Of course, all my relatives are helping her, but how much fun is it to receive charity from your family? Definitely not as satisfying as earning it for yourself. When you pray for Carrie, I would really appreciate it if you slipped in one for my oldest cousin (Carrie's son from a previous marriage), Dakotah. My grandma was talking to me about how he is so pressured all the time: as he goes to a public school, and hangs with non-Christians. My grandma told me proudly that he refused drugs and worse so far, but he can always use prayer. And please pray for Jeff (Carrie's ex-husband) and Jeff's daughter, Tiffany. Both of them aren't Christians.

I know I have a lot of prayer requests, but here's another: my other uncle John, who, also, went through a divorce. He lives alone, and I'm seriously worried about him. I accidently overheard my grandpa talking to my dad, about how John way overworks himself, and how he was really worried. Also, my aunt (John's ex-wife) Julie fled to New York after the divorce, working for a jeweler or something; prayer for her would really be appreciated.

One last prayer request: one for my friend named Krista's mom. Michelle just gave birth to her...seventh (? or eighth...) child and I'm sure she's experiencing some up-and-down's (what with a one year old, a three year old, and a five year old, along with a whole bunch of other kids). And even more amazing is that: they're all homeschooled!

Lot of praying, huh? :D

Blessings,

Bekah

Washington DC Trip

This is a rather selfish prayer request, but here goes.

September 12, there is going to be a 'tea party' in Washington DC. We'll be going to protest the government on the capitol lawn, and will- of course- go see some sights while we're there.

The only problem to this otherwise peachy-keen plan is two things- money, and time. Money is...well, pretty straightforward. It'll probably take quite a bit of money- several hundred, at least- to pay for just gas from here- Texas panhandle- to DC.

Time is also an issue, since my dad owns his own business, and he has to be able to take a couple weeks off.

So please just pray that, if it's the Lord's will, we will be able to take this trip. I'd really like to, as I think the Tea Party is important, and it would be a wonderful historical trip for our entire family to take.

Camp

About: The camp I go to is called Mid West Bible Camp. It is located at the Lake Darling Youth Center, is Brighton Iowa. I've been going to it for a VARY long time and it is the same camp my Mom went to when she was a kid. It's vary helpful to see so many other kids with so much faith in God. The most touching week is Senior week, our (My family) First time of ever experiencing this week was last year. My older sister Marissa (Also one of the authors of this blog) was a Camper, and my mom was a cook and me, my 2 sisters, and 1 brother. Stayed there at the camp (we always do). It was really cool, so many things took place and it was a wonderful experience for anyone. There was a Pranal (Prayer Journal) that anyone could write in, and our Shelter House was used as a... I'm not exactly sure how to explain it... It was a place where People could go and pray. It was really awesome, and my sister had a great time.  Well, that's all about Senior week, Now I'll tell you about Intermediate week.
This summer (June) will be my First year of Actually being a camper at Intermediate week. Last year we were there because my mom was a teacher, and my Brother was a Camper. It was really fun, and I got to spend time with my friends that are a year older then me. Intermediate week is not as involved and Senior week, but it is still really fun and there are lots of people there that set good examples for us younger kids. Now, I've talked about Senior week and Intermediate week, now it's time for Jr. week.
Jr. week is the week that I've gone too for the past 2 years (I didn't go 1 year because we were moving, but usually you are supposed to go for 3 years), oh ya funny story: Last year I had chicken pox the week before Jr. and thank goodness I was over them by Jr. week!!! Anyway, The guy who Directs Jr. week is an AWESOME director!! He knows alot about Nature and stuff and is GREAT for younger kids (4-6 grades), so far my experience with Jr. week were really good!

thanks,

Sad - Prayer

Our family knows a family (whose names I shall keep private) who has, seven children, I think, and the mother was pregnant.

I just recieved an email that the mother gave birth early last night, and the baby was tiny, non-living, too small to tell the gender.

Please keep this family (especially the mother) in your prayers, from what I know, she has lost two or three babies.

Thank you,

Jehovah Reigns,

~Hannah
