The Shaking Of Mount Everest...



 Everything That Can Be Shaken Will Be Shaken...

Living From Glory To Glory Blog


This Earthquake touched me personally;
I have on the ground three young adults living in that area,
That I know personally and attended the one couple's wedding!

I received a TXT message shortly after the earthquake
 and we heard that all of them were safe.

We saw images of this massive mountain just moving and shaking...
Well, we are seeing the destruction and the loss of life!
I will say that I just think that many of these lives will not see the Lord.

The pagan gods and their idols were smashed, their temples are no more...

I have prayed and my heart does feel heavy for this upheaval,
And destruction and loss of loved ones for so many.

There is fear for them that it is still very dangerous to go inside any structure.

I wonder is this the shaking that might cause the world to look
and see that they need a Saviour and how they must make
Him Lord of their lives!

I am so grateful that my friends were on a bus traveling in a remote area!
God does know where each of us are at any given time.

We are told in the Holy Bible that earthquakes will happen!

We must all be ready for any such thing that might shake our lives or our world!

~Everything that can be shaken will be shaken~

Pray For Those To See and Hear The Truth
As destruction can come swiftly and some are not ready
To meet The Only One True God

How To Take Responsibility And The Rhythm and Blues...

 



One of the greatest gifts to give yourself and to your husband and family is this;
Learning to move with the ebb and flow of life...

There is a rhythm that life takes on with just doing and trusting;
No stress and a deep, abiding wholeness.

Most the time when life gets chaotic and stressful is when we are doing too much!

We all can do something each and everyday;
But taking on other person's responsibilities is just foolish
And not biblical at all!
Now, hear me out, we will all have small slots when much more may be required of us.
When sickness comes or a move or trials come;
I fully get that, we must help and pull a bit extra.
We need to help someone in a difficult situation, that is biblical too.

I am talking about others getting away with dumping all their responsibilities on you!

It most cases we live in the overflow of the chaos of the bad decisions of others!

This is called sowing what you reap...

Now, that is a biblical term, and we have all seen the fruit of this truth!

We allow so many to do only what they want and hold no one accountable.
Then we are expected to do our share and carry burdens and work;
That was not intended for us to do or carry

So when we do more than what God has asked of us all the time;
We get overloaded, and we become stressed and filled with anxiety.
We can become feeling a bit down and blue!
The rhythm and blues get out of sync in your life.

And on the other hand, we may be the ones not carrying our share or load;
And we are causing this undo stress on another;

No matter who is not doing their share, this will cause an undercurrent and pulls others under!

I will also add this little surmise, some can carry very heavy loads and it does not
affect them so much. Some of us can carry only smaller loads!

This is what I mean by ebb and flow, we all need to learn this and adjust our days
And commitment to others as what will work and not break us down.
This is old fashion wisdom! And maybe what should be common sense.

"But as a nice person we may take on a false christian bear it all mentality"

We all need to learn these levels of commitment to helping others,
We have all heard terms like enabling or your really not helping them;
God just may be growing them and you are interfering with what God is teaching them!

And if you do too much that is what we really are doing;

Do not over commit, but do what you are suppose to do;
Just use wisdom and learn to say NO...

God has his way of training and maturing each of us;
So do not carry another burden that is theirs to carry,
You are not really helping!
We all must grow up and take responsibility for our lives!

We must always encourage them and lift them in prayer, but doing all the work
Is not really helping them at all!

Help others to have roots so they can stand the winds of adversity
Do not clip their wings!
Help them to soar and grow...
That is real teaching and disciplining and mentoring!
Not doing it for them...

Do you see yourself in this?

How My Mother Spoke A shocking Truth To Me...



The Heady Scent Of A Lilac:
Can Bring a Rush Of Childhood Memories

Living From Glory To Glory Blog

I believe the position and privilege that a Mother carries is so powerful!

A Mothers touch upon a feverish brow
The blast of warmth coming from the kitchen;
A pot of soup simmering on the stove;
A plate of freshly baked cookie aroma penetrates, many a kitchen wall.
Truths spoken in a timely moment that was heard and remembered for a lifetime

I remember dancing with my Mother in the kitchen to the tune of
 You Ain't Women Enough (To Take my Man...)
Loretta Lynn
I learned something that day, And I am going to share it with you!

~There are Women Out There That Want Your Man~

I am grateful to this day she spoke to me and told me,
Honey, Take care of your Man when you get one;
Cuz, there are women out there that will try to steal them!

They will get all gussied up and smell really pretty and act like
They just adore your man, flirty and such!
Smiling real big and smoking too!

So, Dear Ones
Here is the one time given a speech from my Mother on this subject!
Have things changed much in our world today?

I think NOT...

When we stop to ponder and think about what are Mothers;
Imparted to us as women, we need to remember to teach the next
Generations these truths. I get sick and tired of hearing
( I never thought It would Happen to Me)

Every time I happen to hear that song or put in my CD  to hear it;
I gird myself up and resolve to keep my Man...

No Matter how long you have been married;
A couple of years or decades;
There are women out there that would love to snatch up your man!

You may have come disillusioned with his words or appearance!
Maybe you have stopped taking notice of his smile!
Or how funny he can be!

But I will warn you with this...
My Momma told me to watch and be careful;

I am still taking her advice;

I am his women, and he is my man!



Take notice of your man!
Tell him how strong he is or smells good enough to eat!
For Petes sake, you did all that when you were dating him..
Now, Keep him happy and do not let another steal your man!
But the key is...
You got to be women enough to keep him

Writing For His Glory...



How Does Your Blog Grow?
What is it that we as women can do to be connected?


Living From Glory To Glory Blog

I asked a very busy Mom, what is it that women want from a blogger's post?
She said it needs to be short and to the point...
That is why Facebook is so popular;
Just Tweet it
Instagram is the new family photo album.

So I will write for His Glory
My desire is not to bore you with long posts;
But speak what He gives me...

Spring is here with the quick and strange weather patterns!
We need to be quick to respond to what comes at us.

But I will tarry and continue to practice His presence..
Maybe I will just type slower so you can read it all!
Remember Mavis Beacon typing lessons?
Also, did you ever try to speed read?

Well, my dear friends may we all just learn once again
to take pleasure in the simple things!

I hope you enjoy your visits here and to know that I appreciate you!

I guess there are some new gimmicks that we can do to grow our blogs;
But, I hope you find wisdom and comfort from your time here

My heart's desire is to write for His glory;
But if my blog grows, it is because this promotion comes from Him!

To answer my second question at the beginning of this post;
We feel connections as we share our hearts!
(What is on your heart)

How To Study The Bible That Is Fun And Powerful...



Living From Glory To Glory Blog. The Scriptures
~My Notebook~




 Why Study Gods Word?

We are told to study to show ourselves approved...
There is a fun and powerful way to study God's word!


Firstly purchase a nice hard cover notebook;
As after you start this learning process you will want to keep your work
 of the study of the scriptures...

Learning to study can be fun when you use some tools available to us!

What fun would it be to be given a coloring book with no crayons?

When we are looking at a portion of scripture is is just plain writing;
And I do hope you, feel free to underline passages that speak to you!
It is best to have one Bible you can underline and comment in and add things you have learned!


Open your new notebook
 and leave the left side of your notebook for notes only
What I do is start writing the scripture on just the right side of the book!

I Hand write out the scripture verse on the right;
I use the New King James Version as I prefer this version,
And the study tool I use of the Blue Letter Bible dot org is comparable with this version!

~You will need an array of different colors of highlighters and colored pencils~

Make sure you buy the ones that do not bleed through the paper of your
Notebook or Bible...
Using my different colors to study God's word is my favorite part!
What women do not just love new bright colors!

Living From Glory to Glory Blog
~My Colored Highlighters And Markers~

Okay, after you have your scripture written out, start using some tools
A dictionary to look up words, a commentary!
Circle any word that you can look up its meaning;
Underline words that interest you
Draw little pictures of something that relates, like a heart or a question mark.
Being creative with your circles and underlining and pictures, will help you
retain the information and help it stick in your memory.

If you have access to a compute this is a great study tool to help you
with the Greek meaning of different words;
Blue Letter Bible dot org



Also a Strong's Concordance works just great also!
A Bible dictionary is helpful;
Having a few study tools always available will bring much profit!
~This is money well spent and can be used by the whole family~


Living From Glory to Glory Blog


Make studying God's word fun and let it be something you do often!
Spending time reading so much christian material is okay;
But studying God's word will have a much greater impact on your life...

I hope you enjoyed and maybe gleaned something from this article in my Blog
Sometimes it is nice to see how other women are learning and growing!
I find this form of study fun and very powerful and effective!

~Please~
Share with us on this forum what tools or ideas you use to study the Bible!

How Words Can Be More Important Than Just Being Busy...


"She is all talk, but doesn't do anything"

I want to share with you how talking can change a situation!


Living From Glory To Glory Blog


God has chosen words to create and bring life;
When we sing, we glorify our God...

Sounds can change an atmosphere;
Have you ever heard a shofar being blown?
When you hear a rooster crow, you know daybreak is almost here!
The strong gale of wind that blows tells me bad weather may be approaching.

The word tells us there is one calling in the wilderness

A timely word can change history;
~We are told to speak life~

I once heard a man speaking that told us
 When words are spoken or written they put off  a vibration!
He told us this was a scientific fact...

That thought kind of stuck with me!
 After learning that I then wanted to say things that brought a good vibration...
Sounds a bit corny
 But we have all been the recipient of some words spoken (good and bad)

I see a world running around always busy and having meetings;
But sometimes a word spoken in season can do more than all the meetings,
And notes taken and church functions till the cows come home.
Sometimes doing is just standing
And not falling for all that the wind blows in!

We all have different gifts and callings;
So when the world or church want you to just be busy
with no leading from the Lord;
We must use discernment!

We can all do something, and at times it may be for just a short season;
I have found that the church wants women to leave their ministry
of being a homemaker and a helpmate to their own husbands,
To run and manage the church...
That ought not to be...

So if you ladies are doing what God has created you to do;
Loving your husbands and training your children
And keeping your home;
Watching and enjoying your grandchildren
And you, dear ones do not have the time or gifting to work in the church
Do not receive condemnation that may be spoken or felt from the leadership!

We have but one head in the church
(Jesus Christ)
God has set in Elders and Deacons in the local body.

We as women can do many things in the church;
Whatever you are called to do in the local church;
God will give you the strength and there will be a grace to do it!
But we must have our priorities in place...

If the church does not grow or nothing you try can succeed
Then maybe you aren't doing what the church is suppose to be doing
Making disciples of all men...

My point is this;
Calling women away from their God ordained place is not the answer;
For growing our churches...
God has ordained women to mentor the younger women
Not to run the church...
But to be keepers of loving our husbands and our children;
Home Keepers

I would rather have someone who operates in the gifting of encouragement
to speak life to me then ask me to sit in on yet another planning scheme!

I love when I can see the gift of administration working;
They may plan, but never get their hands dirty.
Does that make their job less important?

~If you are trained in the scriptures and can teach than teach~
If you do only one thing and you do it with God's blessing...
Better to do one thing well and not be scattering of thoughts and energy
And prayers and giftings...

We need to encourage one another...
Remember what is spoken in the bedroom my be heard!
Your words spoken in private and in the marketplace will bring a harvest!

Remember to show honor to the weaker vessel!
Uplift and not tear down the body
What you sow, you will reap

Speak only good things about your husband!
Speak only words of correction in love!
Speak what the word says about a situation!

Why A Vintage Camera And Old Photos Help Our Memories...


Memories From Photos, Living From Glory To Glory Blog

Why Taking Photos Can Help Your Memory!
A Photo can tell a story...

I had one of these cameras with a strap, she was a Brownie Junior

It is a very special treat to take out an old shoe box filled with photos and
Have your mind just overflowing with memories!
~This is a real good idea to do as a family or with your grandchildren~

We have all heard the saying every picture tells a story...

Our minds can be stimulated by just reminiscing of the past.
We can use old photos to help our memories...
There is real life and a legacy in those photos.

We have such a drawing to old photos;
The black and white ones just speak of times that said look at me!
 Without all the bells and whistles to cause a distraction of what we were really seeing.
The black and white photos just show us of an era long gone.

We can see our lives take shape from seeing our baby pictures;
How we have grown and who we were with;
Our parents and grandparents and our siblings!
Even seeing our family pets and furniture brings back a flood of memories!

Birthdays and Holidays
Events that were part of our timeline of days and years...

When we can see photos of our childhood or vacations;
Can stimulate our minds to think and process;
There may be even memories we need to overcome any pain or sorrow attached to it.
 We can take these to the Lord and ask for forgiveness for ourselves or
To forgive someone else...
Sometimes we can have some bad memories and that is all we might have;
But when we see old photos of those times that might give a glimpse that all was well,
I have looked at the faces and have said they were so young and they look so happy!

We now live in such a digital world;
We take a lot of pictures,
 But we fail to actually have them printed out anymore.

(But of course, if you are a scrapper)
You have books filled with photos from every event;
Past, present and future.

What are some of the feelings you have when looking at the old photos of yesteryear?
Are you getting those photos you're taking printed out?
Well, I encourage you to do that...

Smile your on Candid Camera!

How The Power Of The Color Blue Inspires Us...

 
Robin Blue Eggs, Living from Glory to Glory Blog


Robin Eggs

There is just something about the color of Robins eggs that are so precious.
Why are they so blue and remind us of an ocean crystal clear?
A deep blue that is beholding of a depth that is hard to capture.

Artist for years have tried to replicate its unique color.
The color blue brings peace and calming, to me;
I think that is why we enjoy gazing up into a clear blue sky
Or standing at the seashore of a tropical setting,
Sometimes it is even portrayed even in a picture that beckons us!

We can feel the depth of stability, as the sky and the ocean have always been since creation!
I looked up the meanings of the color blue and it was very interesting,
Some of the effects that have been recorded as being calming!
To make you feel uplifted and happy

Blue symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, faith and truth and of Heaven!

The color blue says open spaces;
And it opens up my imagination to the vastness of ideas

The color blue in the Bible represents the Word and the power of God
Numbers 15:38-41
The Law, or Commandments

~I imagine that the river of life must be blue and crystal clear~

The wall and the foundations were furnished with so many precious stones of different colors, 
Notice the second one was Sapphire
Revelation 21:19
(The tribe of Dan)

When we begin to feel like winter will never end;
Or a relationship that feels dead
God opens our eyes to newness of life and an open sky to possibilities
I believe in resurrection power...
There is a force that beats our hearts and is attached to a golden cord called life!

I am speaking to dead marriages
Prodigal children
deathbed conversions
broken hearts
Lies spoken by the enemy of our souls

Look up

Seek His face while it might be found, He has the answers
Do not give up!
Be not discouraged

The battle belongs to the Lord
~But we must stand on His truth and not lay down our shield of faith~

There is always a promise that God is in the process of fulfilling!

When you see the Robin, you know a new season and life is here
REJOICE

Do you find yourself drawn to spring colors!
Can you sense the uplifting of your spirits through color?

How The Benefits of Epsom Salts Can Help Heal...



Living From Glory To Glory Blog

Natures Wonder...

This wonderful natural salt can be used for many things;
It is a beauty secret and can be used for health benefits.

You can use it as a facial mask;
Mix with a small amount of honey and smooth a bit in your face and neck.
Let set for 2-3 minutes and gently wash off!
It makes your face look radiant and smooth  looking skin...


I have always enjoyed the benefits of using Epsom salt in my bath or a foot soak!
(This is a wonderful thing to do for your Hubby when he gets home from work once in awhile)
If you have a splinter in a finger it will help to draw it out. And helps take the pain away!
It will help you feel relaxed and refreshed when used in your bath water!

This is the time of the year where we are working outside so much more.
And getting more use of all our muscles!

But I have really come to realize the benefits of the this salt filled with magnesium!

Our bodies are so depleted in this wonderful mineral!
There is now an oil you can get from your health food store that
you can just rub on your skin.

Here are just a few good reasons to use Epsom salts;

Using this in your bath water will help Relieve Stress and Anxiety: The moment you slide into a warm bath, you may instantly feel less stressed...

Epsom salt also helps reduce your stress because it helps your body to produce serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical in the brain that brings an overall calm feeling to your body and mind.
Epsom salt also lowers blood pressure and helps you sleep like a baby.


Epsom salt will help Relieves Pain and Muscle Cramps:
 The majority of our pain comes from inflammation of the joints and muscles
 this is especially true in the case of back pain.
 Epsom salt helps relieve the pain and the inflammation in all your joints!
 It also will help heal skin wounds and can help with migraine headaches.

 It is really good for your brain and your level of electrolytes.
I have heard it helps with concentration!
People that have seizures can benefit from magnesium also.

The Epsom salt bath will also help remove toxins, but be warned;
These mineral salt baths do make you feel tired, so take them in the evenings
Just before bedtime!
Also, you need to drink plenty of water to keep flushing out the toxins!



Epsom salt is actually a pure mineral compound of both magnesium and sulfate.
It has shown in studies to contain over 325 enzymes.

I know it helps with inflammation of any joint or back pain!

I always have a bag or carton of this magic cure around my house!
This stuff is so cheap, you can find it even at most Dollar Stores.
I think this is a very frugal health item that should be in every
Medicinal cabinet, as it works for so many things that ail us,
And is so cost efficient and affordable!

You can then pour it into a pretty jar and set near your tub or counter top.

I really think this salt is a gift from the Lord, as it has so many healing qualities!

Here are some of the same facts from the Epsom Salt Council;
Click on their link below for more good information


Do share with me anything that you have benefited
From using Epsom Salts...

How To Be A Pansy And Thrive...


Living From Glory To Glory Blog

Pansies...

We are so blessed to be part of unique positioning.
The sun is the greater light
The moon the lesser light,
We have the light of the Lord within if we are Christians.

But we have all the details to accomplish the great and special events.
That has been predestined for us!

There are so many details that seem insignificant,
But they all have been divinely ordained!

I am always amazed at the intricate design of creation of
All plants and flowers and animals.

But what just makes my heart leap is the way a heart longs
To love in the face of struggle.

The scriptures tell us that women are the weaker vessel;
But I think in a way it is like a Pansy flower;
Soft and delicate, very fine and colorful and attractive!
A flower in the very sense of the word;
But a pansy flower can stand up to brutal cold temps,
To be covered in a foot of snow!
Yet, they do more than survive, they thrive!
They can grow in the shade, even in soil made up of pine needles.
They stay alive with even very little water.

So I think of women that in many ways may be weaker;
But I see the makeup of A sturdy and strong strength;
That come from within...
To endure tough situations

Giving birth
Holding the hand of someone dying
Being an advocate for someone with no words
Protecting our children
Loving in the face of rejection
Waiting till the time of revelation of a situation...

The saying of don't be a Pansy, brings a whole new spin on that one!

I may cry, but I can still see through my tears!
Scripture tells us sorrow may last through the night;
But JOY comes in the morning...

I am thankful for the strength to do more than survive,
But we are called to thrive and set our hand to the plow;
And to break up that fallow ground!
Even a Pansy can break through a hard and cracked surface;
And bend its head into the rays of warm sunshine and smiles.
The Pansy smiles into the face of adversity...

This is one of my most favorite Blog Post...

For The Revelation Awaits...


The Revelation Awaits, Living From Glory to Glory Blog


All things have an appointed time...

~It speaks~

Waiting for all that God has planned for you, is well worth the wait!

All things will come to pass for you dear ones...
As we wait, we must stay busy and occupy till He returns!

 We have many days and years to fill with fruits and works,
"For His Glory"

When you wait patiently for His timing all things just unfold...

We are all just so impatient

Could you not tarry for one hour?
Would you not watch for three days?
Would you persevere for forty years?

We sometimes may feel we are wasting our time;
But what may be really going on is that we may not be using our time wisely.

I have seen a pattern in my life;
I work hard and then I rest...
We work so we can enjoy the fruits of His good pleasure towards us!

I find great joy knowing that every promise in God's word will be
Fulfilled, just as He foretold.

When we are waiting for something, we grow!
~Learning to find the pleasure in the waiting~
When we conceived a child, we have nine months to prepare
When we plant a seed we have months till we harvest
When we plant a tree we have years till we have shade or fruit to harvest
A great marriage may take many years
It can take decades for your children to rise up to call you blessed

Wait...

All things in its appointed season
Even if the enemy of our souls tries to bring destruction
God will use it for His glory
Nothing is wasted...

All will be used to build up or prove false...
The truth will win
The King on His white horse called
Faithful and true!

Be faithful dear ones;
Be a faithful daughter
Be a faithful woman
Be a faithful wife
Be a faithful witness

(Those that wait will see)

For it shall surely come...
