Devotions


Devotions, what's that? I time that you spend with God, seeking Him.
Here's what I do for my devotions:
~Read the Bible
~Read A Young Woman's Walk with God
~Pray

Devotions shouldn't be something you put on your chore list, it's a time to spend with your Savior and King, and a time to grow in God. I have found that when I don't do devo's (devotions) in the morning or I don't do it that day, my day is horrible with tons of obstacles, but when I do devo's my day is better. God will reward those who follow and seek Him! I do have those day's were I've done devo's but I still have a horrible day, but that's just a way to grow and trust that God will help you through that time. Satan will through things into our path so that we won't spend time with God. We can't let that stop us from spending time with the one who sent His only son to die for us! Give God a portion of your day were all your thinking about is Him! Devotions isn't something we can only do in the morning or at night. When were doing something we can stop and pray or read the Bible and seek God! I like doing my devo's in the morning because I'm starting the day off with God, but you can do them any time in the day.

A Young Woman's Walk with God chapter 1 #3 - 5

"So What Can I Do?" #3

I'm sure you want God's fruit to mark your life, to make you beautiful from the inside out. If so, you're probably wondering "What can I do to get it? How can I make this happen? What do I need to do to get things going, to get this business of spiritual fruit- bearing in motion?"

First, you can't think ,Maybe if I try harder, No, Jesus teaches that do-it-yourself effort isn't the answer. You can only receive the fruit of the spirit through Christ!

Next, remember that the fruit of the spirit act as one. You can't say ,I just need this one, you need them all!

Another thing is, as a whole the nine characters of the fruit of the spirit are produced in the same way. Everything said of one characteristic is the same for the other eight.

Finally, never forget about the battle that is going on with your flesh and the spirit. In Galatians 5:17 we learn that "the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the spirit, and the spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature." As long as we live as Christians we will have to fight our sinful nature, but God will be right by us to help us when we fall. WE must live every minute of our lives the way God desires us to pleasing him with....
~the thought we choose to think,
~the words we choose to say, and
~the actions we choose to take.
~Letting God guide us each step of the way.
~Letting God work in us so we can bring glory to Him.

Discovering the Secret to Walking with God #4

John 15 4-5:

Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me he can do nothing.

We can't expect God to do all the work. We must do some too.

1. Get into God's word- Read God's word every day and seek Him.
2. Make time for prayer- Prayer is a must in a relationship with God.
3. Do what God asks- Honor God in everything you do and obey His commandments.
4. Give your heart to Jesus- Before anyone or anything can grow it must be alive. Are you alive spiritually? You can't grow until you are alive in Christ.

Getting It All Together #5

So, are you alive in Christ? There are only three possible answers, no, I'm not sure, and yes.


Answer #1: No- If you answers no-if you have not accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour- you can set foot on the path of walking with God and growing in Him right now by earnestly praying words like these form your heart. This is step 1 toward getting your life together:

Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I want to repent of my sins and turn and follow You. I believe You died for my sins and rose again victorious over the power of sin and death, and I want to accept You as my personal Saviour. Come into my life, Lord Jesus, and help me obey You from this day forward. Amen.

Answer #2: I'm not sure- If your not sure that the the seed of faith has taken root in your heart, you may want to say a prayer of re-commitment:

Jesus, I know that in the past I asked You into my life. I thought at that time that I was Your child, but my life hasn't shown the fruit of my belief. As I again hear Your call, I want to make a real commitment to You as Lord and Master of my life. Amen.

Or perhaps the following prayer better fits your circumstances:

Dear Lord Jesus, I know that in the past I asked You into my life. I want to be Your child, I think and hope that I am Your child, but I want to know that I am Your child. Lord, give me the reassurance that I have eternal life through You because of Your death on the cross for my sin. Amen.

What ever you do, if your not sure if you are standing with God pray and ask him to come into your life, and know that God loves you! :)

Answer #3 Yes- If you answered yes than take a few moments to thank God and praise Him for all that Jesus has done for you. Make a fresh commitment to walk with Him and obey His commandments.

Verse of the Week

John 18:37 (ESV)

Then Pilate said to Him, "So you are a king?" Jesus answered,"You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world- to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice."

From the Child to the Woman

"Who can find a virtuous woman?
for her worth is far above rubies."


One of these day's we will have a great surprise! We will become a woman. This may happen over night or it may take a few months, but one of these days we will wake up and find that God has said it's time for you to become a woman!
Childhood is a wonderful thing. A little baby in a mother's arms, a dependent little child depending on his mother and father for everything, and child growing every day. Childhood holds untold possibilities and promises. Some children are far away from shy and others are far away from stepping out of there comfort zone, and neither of them are right or wrong. That's the way God created them, but one day, shy or not, we will step into womanhood! Womanhood is a wonderful thing. When we step into womanhood we are saying that we will put the childish things behind and do the things that a woman does. (1 Corin. 13:11) When you step into womanhood you will be more graciously and things that didn't matter when you were a child will all of a sudden start to matter. There is a stage in between childhood and womanhood. It's called your youth years. The youth stage can be a hard stage. They are busy, and hard. There not what you expected them to be, but this stage will pass into womanhood. We must pray that we will get through the youth years the way God wants us to and that we won't stray from his path!

A Young Woman's Walk with God chapter 1 #1 and 2


I've started the book A Young Woman's Walk with God and I'd like to share with you what I'm reading. I can't tell you in full what the author says, so I would recommend reading the book.

Getting it all Going

The lady who wrote this, Elizabeth George, lives in Washington. She and her husband planted an apple tree and it is know producing fruit. She marvels at the apple tree as she see's it develop! She says, it wasn't all peaches and cream. They had to nurture, fertilize, water prune, train, spray, and protect the tree but there efforts have paid off.
As she thinks about it she thinks about the fruit of our lives as Christian woman, no matter what our ages. We need to be actively cultivation the fruits of the spirit into our lives so that we reflect the glory of God. It won't be easy, just like she and her husband had to work hard on there apple tree, we will have to work hard on our fruits, as well. What can we do to get the growing of the spiritual fruit going?

Finding out About the Fruit of the Spirit

Mrs. George studied about her apple tree. Just as she studied we must study God's word to better understand the fruit of the spirit and how it grows. The word "fruit" is used throughout the Bible to tell of what is on the inside of a person. If what's inside is good, than that persons fruit is good. If what's inside is rotten, than that persons fruit is bad. (Matthew 12:33,35 explains what I've said above) What sort of fruit have you seen in your actions lately?

Any person who has excepted the Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior and has Christ living within will bear good fruit. (Philippians 1:11)

(Galatians 5:22-23) The fruit of the Spirit are one. You can't say 'Oh I'll just practice patience and that will be good enough!' You have to have all nine to glorify God!

Another Book

Well, I've started another book! A Young Woman's Walk with God, Growing More like Jesus by Elizabeth George! I've almost finished reading the first chapter and it sounds really good. When I finish the chapter I'll do a summary over it! :)

Beautiful Gilrhood #1

I'm been reading this awesome book called, Beautiful Girlhood . My Mom had a wonderful idea of me post about the chapters and what's in them! So, I'm going to go through ever single chapter and summarize it for my followers, guests, and anyone else. So let's get started.......

Chapter one, A Rose Bud Opens. " Rejoice... in your youth; and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth"
Watching a rose develop is very interesting! It starts out flimsy and weak. Everyday it grows more and more, and then after a while it grows into a full beautiful bloom. When it's in full bloom it's beautiful and vibrant.
Girlhood is the opening flower of womanhood. We girls are a lot like roses. We are flimsy at first but as we grow in Christ we begin to get stronger and more beautiful in him.

As our rose starts out we are in girlhood, learning, growing, and maturing. Everyday, we grow more until one day we are at full blossom! We have gone from girlhood to womanhood. When we're in Womanhood we still learn, grow, and mature, we will always learn, grow, and mature in Christ. The only way we get from girlhood to womanhood is through Christ! He controls how fast we grow and when we shall blossom. We will go through struggles as we are in girlhood and when we are in womanhood, but or Lord is ready to stand by our side and help us through them! God is our refuge and strength, we can't do anything without him. The only way we will transition into womanhood is by putting our trust in Christ.

Radomness

Well, I've never done a random post, but I thought I'd give it try. Okay, let me think........

I want my own point and shot camera.

I want to go to Paris, France and see the Eiffel Tower. My rooms' theme is the Eiffel Tower and I've done an Essay on the Eiffel Tower! I want to go really bad.

I really like Photography and like my brother said from Livin-for-Him I want to go to New Zealand with a camera in my hand! If you want to see some of my Photography visit my Photo Blog.

I am deadly afraid of wasps and bees.

My favorite scent is a new book! :)

I really like the beach. It's my happy place! ;)

Well, I can't think of anything else, so see ya later! ;)

Another book

Well, I've started another book! ;) Mere Christianity written be C.S. Lewis, he's one of my favorite authors. I read the first chapter already and it looks like it's going to be a good book! :) I'm still reading The Lord of the Rings, Prince Caspian, and Beautiful Girlhood. I love to read! (sighs)

What did I do

What did I do on my 'computer free week'? Glad you asked! :) I did a whole bunch of reading in The Lord of the Rings, and Prince Caspian, and I read the bible a lot and I really enjoying that! I did a lot of errands with my mom and I helped her out around the house, I had some of my friends over, swam, did some school, and watched a movie or two. It was hard to stay off the computer, but it was good for me! It's a good challenge.

Verse of the Week

Exodus 20:12 (NIV)

"Honor your father and your mother,
so that you may live long in the land
the Lord your God is giving you"


This verse is very important. God says that if we honor our father and mother we will live long on the earth. There are many verses in the bible that are like this one, it is very important that we honor our father and mother because #1 God says it in His word, #2 they sacrifice so much for us and sometimes we aren't even aware of it, #3 we can't only honor them once a year (On Mothers Day, and Fathers Day) we need to honor them always! Don't get me wrong, I'm far from perfect in this area, but I'm striving to honor them because it pleases God and them!

Photo Blog

Just wanted to let y'all know that I have a photo blog called 'Moriah's Photo's'. Here is a link to IT
(click it). I hope you will be able to go and check it out! :) Wow, another really short post.

Three Polls

Just wanted to let y'all know that I have three poll on my side bar.
Wow, this is the shortest post I've ever done! :O

Femininity vs. Feminism

Femininity vs. feminism is an important topic, to me. You can't be in between you have to be one or the other. I am all for femininity, and not at all for feminism.
What is the difference between the two? I'm so glad you asked! ;) Femininity is the quality or condition of being feminine. A characteristic or trait traditionally held to be female. The sum of all attributes that convey womanhood.
Feminism is the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men.
Femininity is what God wants to see in all women. Feminism is a very worldly belief in my opinion. Proverbs 31 is full of femininity. Yes, she buys land and does other things but she's doing that for her husband and not for herself. I don't think it's bad to have a job, as long as it's the will of your husband/father and most importantly the will of God. God does call women to be missionaries.
I personally don't think a women should be mayor, governor, president, marine, join the army or air force etc. That is a place for a man to do not a woman. Women slandered men when they took up jobs that a man should do. This reminds me a lot of Eowyn and Arwen. I like both, but both have very different views.
Eowyn, I believe is a feminist. Arwen, on the other hand, believes and shows femininity. Here's why I believe this:
Eowyn- wanted to fight in war, therefore she wanted to do a man's job. She was going to take up Theoden's throne if he didn't return and have rule over Rohan, which I believe is very wrong.
Arwen- yes, she went out to find Aragorn and yes she took Frodo instead of Aragorn doing it, but that was to save Frodo's life because she was the faster rider. Even though she did those things, which I don't think we're acts of feminism, she shows femininity all throughout the movie. She's graceful, and well feminine.
Again, I'm not saying that I don't like Eowyn, I'm just saying she's a feminist.
A person can be feminine but not be biblical. How is this possible? Glad you asked another question! She could be feminine but not have a happy heart about it. This lady says; "Hi, yes I'm feminine but I wish I wasn't. I would rather be out getting a job. :(" A Biblical feminine lady says; "Hi, yes I'm feminine and I'm happy to be so for it makes my Lord happy. :)"

Do I believe being feminine means you have to wear a skirt 24, 7, 365? (366 if it's a leap year) Great question. No I don't. There are things that you can't possible do in a skirt, and I for one don't like wearing skirts all the time. I'm not saying I don't like skirts, don't get me wrong. I usually wear pants but I like wearing a skirt occasionally.

Do I believe that being feminine means that you can't do any work outside? Awesome question. Of course I don't believe that! We, as women/ young women, are to hold the fort together in the inside, but we can also do work outside.

I don't hate feminist's, most of my outside family are feminists, I'm just saying that I don't believe in being or encouraging them to be a feminist.
If you have any questions please let me know, and please share your thoughts of this topic with me. This post wasn't meant to argue, please don't get offended if you don't agree!

Susan/Caspian



Alright, the person who made this movie ruined it by adding in these 'romantic' scenes!
I really hate the last scene in Narnia. (ugh) It's horrible. When The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe came out, Susan was my favorite character, now she's not. What was the point in kissing Caspian if she was going to leave anyway. She should have left it at I prefer to be left alone. I have to admit, when I first saw the movie I thought Aw that's sweet. Then I thought wait, what am I saying! It's not sweet it's stupid! Have you ever thought of how many times they had to re-shoot that scene? (I don't even want to know.) Anyway, I believe in saving your first kiss for the alter. For the man who God has for you, and not on another girls (future) husband.

Posts

Well, like my title says this has something to do about posts. I want to know what you want to hear more about:

~Lotr (The Lord of the Rings)
~Spiritual Growth
~Everyday life
~What's goin' on in my life
~Books, movies, Etc.
~Spiritual qualities characters in movies have or don't have

If you think of anything else besides what I've put above please share it with me!

My Poodle


Well, I don't think I have to convince y'all that she's crazy, the pic above does that for me. This is my adorable poodle Hadassah! What kind of name is that, you might ask? It was Esther's name before she became queen, you know in the bible. Hadassah is one year old and FULL of energy. We can walk out to the mall box and come back inside and she acts like she hasn't seen us in ages. She is a full blooded miniature poodle that we adopted at a poodle rescue. We adopted her when she was three months old, I think. She is truly crazy, but truly loving too!

Pics from Skirt Week




Well, I'm done with skirt week. I didn't get to wear a skirt one day, which was Saturday, because we were doing a lot of work around the house and it would have been difficult to wear a skirt. SO I did six days. I didn't get the chance to have pics taken every day.

What Breed of Horse I am.

You are most like the Morgan horse. You are beautiful and expressive, and mostly a show horse. You are generally calm, and any human is lucky to own a morgan. You are very pretty as well. So go you!


Elrania from The Life of a Horse- Loving Elf Girl did a quiz for a few people to see what kind of breed they are. Thank you Elrania!

Verse of the Week

Psalm 14:2-3 (ESV)

2.The Lord looks down from heaven on the children of man,
to see if there are any who understand, who seek God.

3. They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt;
there is none who does good, not even one.

Math is Finished

So, like I said in the title 'Math is finished'!!! Which is really good for a few reasons, math is my weakest subject (meaning I'm horrible at it), I have one less thing to do, and I can read more know! Since math is my weakest subject I'm a bit nervous because I'll be going into pre-algebra when we start school back up. Anyway, I'm glad I'm done with math for the summer! :)

The Widow's Might

The Widow's Might is a wonderful movie! It is about a widow who is going to lose her home over property taxes, but some of her friends are determined to stop it! It was shown at The San Antonio Film Festival by Vision Forum. I really recommend buying this movie! Oh, I almost forgot to mention that it's a musical/western! :)

The Books I'm Reading

I'm such a book worm!
The Horse and His Boy by C.S Lewis. This so far, is a very good book. One of my friends said that I really need to read the Narnia Series so I've started. Well, I had already read The Magicians Nephew and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe!
Beautiful Girlhood I think it's written by Karen Andreola. So far, this book has been awesome! I would recommend it to any girl with no hesitation!
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. I am reading The Fellowship of the Ring right know and just like the other two books it is really good!

Goals/Plans for the Summer

A lot of people take of school for the Summer. Well I'm not, and I don't mind that much. I mean why would you want to have nothing to do except burn up outside. I would rather not have a lot of schoolwork in the holiday months, than in the Summer. Anyways, I'm doing school during the Summer, working on our house (so that we can sell it), doing some fun stuff with family and friends, finish and start good books, and whatever the Lord has in plan! :) I just hope that no one in my family brakes anything this Summer! Last summer, my Dad, my brother and I all broke a bone in two months time. Talk about bad luck! My dad broke his foot, my brother broke his collarbone, and I broke my arm again. We are know as the broken bone family. My brother and I are very well acquainted with the local hospital. I've broken my arms four times! (twice on each arm) OUCH! Anyway, my goal for this summer is to not brake anything! :)

Verse of the Week


Matthew 2:13-15

13When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph on a dream. "Get up," he said, "take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him."
14 So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, 15 where he stayed until the death of Herod.

I like these verses, because of the obedience that Joseph had. He didn't ask any questions or argue with the angel sent by God, instead he obeyed without delay!
