There are two books on the shelf;
“Pleasing God” or “Pleasing Self”.
I hope you have a wonderful day today. The below zero temperatures are behind us for this week, though I hear we may see a little more tonight. Praise the Lord for the wood stove and a warm place to live!
Today, in studying the fruit of the Spirit; God's love being listed first...I ask myself...
..."Is LOVE the controlling force of my life?"
God is doing a work within the life of any believer who is obediently walking in his Word and presence throughout the day - even if we do not see it. He is the all powerful God.
One more thing I learned about today, "yick yack", I had never heard of this internet application that allows people to express their views with "no one knowing who you are". There are so many ways for the internet to ruin people's testimonies! I hope that Christian people, young people perhaps, will realize that GOD KNOWS. He is the one who is conforming us to Himself. Yick yack is just one "means" that could undo much of what He wants to "do". How sad. The world has such a pull and strong "hold".
An interesting statistic today:
The cell phone is now considered an actual extension of a person's body!
Our adversary, the devil is walking about, seeking whom he may devour.
I do hope you have a good day. Thanks so much for stopping by Darling Hill. I hope it was not a discouraging word. I am glad that we serve a God who overcomes the world!

As a Christian (one who has accepted Jesus’ death and shed blood as complete payment for MY sin), how can I be truly joyful in my daily walk?
-by choosing to obey the greatest commandment; to LOVE.
I was so blessed by a sermon I listened to this morning. It was from Steve Pettit, preached from Bob Jones University. The simple message was, "Not Under the Law" and was about walking in the Spirit. It is so refreshing to see that he is still holding to the Authorized King James Version.
The truths are still running through my heart and brain, as to the in-and-out workings of this in each little area of my life, but that is where "meditate upon it day and night" comes in.
What a joy it is to live for Jesus Christ!

“Give unto the Lord the glory due unto His name; bring an offering and come before Him; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.”
I Chronicles 16:29
Every little moment is strung together with the next ~ together they make up a day!
I hope that your moments, whether at home with your family or in some other little corner where God leads you, are spent as testimonies to our holy God. I was blessed to be reminded of God's holiness on the Lord's day; also of my need to "worship Him" in everything I do daily. My husband preached at our church. As he gave testimony, I was reminded "where I came from", as we were married at a very young age and many of the testimonies involved me. It's funny how you just don't take time to bring to remembrance where God has brought you from; the sin and hopelessness, etc. We have so much to be thankful for; so much to serve and worship Him for!!
