Why white Wedding Gowns 18 d
The white gown symbolized prosperity, virginity and a lifetime commitment to one person. For most people but today, those meanings are gone.
Although the first records of brides garbed in white reach far back into the annals of history, it only became standard fashion over last 80 years. With the arrival of ready-to-wear clothing, brides could order affordable, mass-produced gowns based on sample sizes that were then fitted for them: a custom-made gown at a ready-to-wear price. A large, traditional wedding with the bride outfitted in a princess-style white wedding gown became a symbol of the American dream.
From WWII through the end of the 20th century, the white gown symbolized prosperity, virginity and a lifetime commi ... read more
What makes you kind and truly helpful? 2 of 2 19 d
** Why should you (we) help others? Mainly because God has placed those whom you are to help on your patherway of life!
How can you be helpful in your life?
Most of us tend to get but forget to give with all the things available to us.
The following is a message ta many of us need to consider!
** It’s deeply important to God that we’re mindful to bless others with what He’s entrusted to us (see Galatians 6:9-10). We must all make sure that we’re not like the stingy man in the Bible who had so much that all of his barns were full with no room for more. Instead of giving any of it away, he decided that he would tear down the barns he had and just build bigger ones to collect more stuff for himself.

What makes you kind and truly helpful? 1 of 2 24 d
For your helpfulness to be effective and not tied to a necessity for your part!
The Extent of your helpfulness is based upon it’s interest and true application in your life!
** compared on a scale such as:
1) A great deal (Completely, if appropriate),
5) Or not at all
Most people will or would believe or say that they are in the upper percent of those who are helpful on a purely voluntary bases.
Without any real or implied rewards or special purposes! Because the vast majority would be only be looking for personal rewards. Thus just plain wrong in their so called assistance!
It comes down to ... read more
How is your holiness? 28 d
Most people have little knowledge on their Holiness!
Matthew 24:13 ’But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.’
Here, Jesus teaches that the believer must persevere to receive complete salvation. Salvation is a gift that cannot be earned or maintained by our own works. It has to be received by faith. However, there is effort on our part to maintain that faith. This is where holiness comes in.
Holiness will not produce relationship with God, nor will a lack of holiness make God turn away from us. He deals with us according to our faith in Jesus, not our performance. Holiness will keep Satan from st ... read more
Who R U anyway? 29 d
What do you know?
John 8:32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Yet most tend to chase after fads and popular things! So if you knew the right (correct) road to the planned place you were seeking to go - Oh why would you take off on many of the scatterbrain alternatives that have been put upon your pathway?
Only a fool chases ignorance and lies thinking they are correct! It is your choice - God gives each of us the Intelligence with which to seek and follow the Absolute Truth!
Have you found it yet?
We all know about things - but many do not understand that thin ... read more
Do you really know, Who you really Are? 33 d
** Learning to understand your real self is often complicated and nerve racking! When are you going to start?
Many people tend exist in a realm of ignorance - because they do not understand who they actually were!
This is why, so many people follow popular trends and fads to try to be in sync! They want to be part of some important things to feel connected and whole! The problem comes because we are and were meant to be single individual people! The fads are simply easy ways to not have to think or decide! Just follow the Pied Pipers!
If you would start developing your Cognizant Abilities you will be surprised, how this is the way to truth and righteousness!
The unfortunate fact is many ... read more
Want to find yourself? Just Read! 38 d
** Many people in the world today are lost and confused! WHY?
Are you one of the bored people who looks everywhere for their answers?
Well you are not alone. It seems that in this modern age of so much information - people have become info-zombies!
They can get on line to seek an answer, or zip off a dozen Cell calls - but in actual reality they are lost! What? How can this be?
It comes down to how well, they can reason and make critical decisions!
Because unless you learn to use your God Given Intelligence - You are just a sap for all the News and Information channels.
Just what does that indicate?
It points out that if you say you ar ... read more
Time and Talent - 3 40 d
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
New International Version
A Living Sacrifice
12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Humble Service in the Body of Christ
3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather t ... read more
Time and Talent - 2 42 d
We all have some form of talent - the problem is that most people do not use it!
If you were really interested in developing your reliable talents into beneficial actions in your life things would be different!
Most people do not understand the How, Why, or Why of life!
Your Eternal existence depends upon how, when and why you become human in your mortal and then learn to use them!
It takes more than just knowing a few somethings to actually have a better successful existence here upon the earth!
It seems that most of the things going on are based upon on line or broadcast, or print materials - most of which are money (profit) driven!
This limits the value ... read more
Time and Talent - 1 44 d
** We all have some type of talent (natural aptitude or skill.) The real question is how do we use it?
Paul wrote: -
” 1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love I am only a resounding gong or clanging cymbal resounding in the wind.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and can understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have faith, that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
3 And though I give all I possess to the poor, and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
So where does this statement leave you! Most people fail to realize that they have given talents, so spend much of their ... read more
** Serendipitous or Trial and error 54 d
We all must learn how to deal with the truth in our lives!
How do you function?
** You life is based upon the occurrences which have brought certain apparently random events! Which are actually part of our eternal existence! Learn to be alert to the how, why of these events appearing before you!
Note on John 1:43
John was the only Gospel writer to record this first encounter between Philip and Nathanael, and Jesus.
Notice that Jesus found Philip.
This was not just a random selection. Jesus was looking specifically for this certain man (see my note at John 1:45). Likewise, the Lord finds all of us. We say we found the Lor ... read more
How great a calling? 54 d
** Most people become so tied up in their life that they tend to miss the real reason for their eternal existence!

Who exactly is running your life?
So where is your soul?
Looking in Mark 1:16-18
When Jesus came to Andrew and Simon fishing, and he called them; ” Come Follow Me! ” - they left their nets and followed him!
We find that, just getting the calling of the Lord Christ on the shore of the the Sea of Galilee was a powerful event! Few people actually receive a personal calling from the Lord Jesus in person!
As great as this revelation was, promptly required an immediate positive response. Thus you should see and understand why they quickly accepted and followed!
But was there somet ... read more
