Now Mims..... why would I get mad at you for posting scripture? That's be what they call one of them oxymoron things I think. I Christian getting mad about scripture. LOL Besides, you cant make me mad no matter what you do or how hard you try.

I do love all 3 of those together and are some that I use when given the opportunity to prove the Trinity. ::D

Thank you for posting them!!

I'm very pleased that you are not upset with me Miss (Mrs.) Em. I knew you wouldn't be.

So, I can't upset you NO matter what. Hmmmmmm....I need to put my thinking cap on. I bet I COULD figure out something. I can be naughty. :angl: Oops, wrong smiley.

Prov 13:3 "Self-control means controlling the tongue. A quick response can ruin everything."

In other words, control your emotions or they will control you.

Expect God to do something good and aggravate satan by praising God when things are a mess.

Rom 15:13 "Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing that you may live in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."

I can live hopeful or miserable. If what I hope for never comes, at least I was happy while waiting.

Rom 5:4 "Patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady."

The Lord told Solomon "ask for anything & I'll give to u". Solomon asked for a heart that would know & choose right over wrong. God said "since you didn't ask for riches for urself or defeat of ur enemies, I'll give what u asked for PLUS what u didn't ask for - riches & honor & long life." (1 Kings 3:5-14). I pray everyday for Jesus to help me to choose right even tho wrong may feel better @ that moment. This is how I know He will meet all my needs, even those I didn't know about.

Gifts may get u there but character is what keeps u there. 2 Tim 1:7 "For God did not give us the Spirit of fear but of power & love & self-control" (teacings from J Meyer)

In midst of issues, focus on how its building u up & increasing ur faith. Then u won't miss God when He shows up. 1 Pet 1:13 "get ur mind ready for action by being sober (not bogged down w/ hopeless thots) & set ur hope completely on the grace that comes When Christ Jesus is revealed (in the situation)"

"the devil can't control a patient person" J Meyer
James 1:2-4 "is life full of difficulties & temptation ? Then be happy for when the way is rough, your patience has a chance to grow. Don't try to squirm out of your problems. For when your patience is finally in bloom, then you're ready for anything, strong in character, full & complete. "

(Num 13:27-14:9) 2 groups of peops in same situation see the same 3 things: milk, honey, & giants. 1 group focus only on giants. Result: feel helpless & give up; Other group focus on Gods promise of the milk & honey. Result: defeated giants & got the milk & honey!!!!!
"It is wonderful country ahead & Lord loves us. He will bring us safely into the land & give to us."
Don't focus on "giants"; focus only on "milk & honey"
