Being Teachable And To Learn to Love, Take What You Are Given And Do Not Be Stiff Necked...


Jesus, The Lion And The Lamb, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


Not Alone

Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit.
Looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God,
And Jesus  is standing at the right hand of God.
Acts 5:55

Dear Ones, God loves a heart fully dedicated to Him,
Even when dedication results in deep wounds.
God loves a faithful heart!
I look at Stephen and I think he was a super hero of faith!
Being a martyr for truth;
Not backing down!
How can my life be a daily offering?
I will need extravagant grace and brutal honesty in my life
Interactions with the spiritual opposition will happen to every saved person!
Remember the Word tells us they hated Him first.

What and who are we willing to die for?
This shakes me to the core...
The world is shaking their fists at God.

All I have been called to be is a keeper of this Home!
But;
He has asked older women to teach the younger women
But when others want to cleave to their own ways,
And are really angry at God and the world!
We loose a teachable heart.
We become stiff necked!
Hardened in our ways and words!
Sometimes the truth hurts...
But the word tells us this also,
"The truth will make you free"
We are going to be held accountable to what and how we lived!

I remember thinking as a very young woman;
I am never going to let someone tell me what to do........
Or how to dress!!
What to read or not read...
Where I can go!
I will NOT submit...
I grew mean and bitter I trusted no one really.


"But it happened in a blink for me,"
 I was presented with a truth and love,
I could no longer push away!
"He loved Me"
I submitted to the greatest Authority!
My heart melted and I truly became
His Child

And this is where the Scripture of the title of my Blog becomes
Life and my walk through this world...

Always, Living from Glory To Glory

Hugs, Roxy

  1. Words of truth here today. The world is indeed angry at God and they way He has told us to ive. When I read of the abuse Christians are enduring because of their belief in the truth of the WORD, I know that God will not tolerate the sinfulness of mankind indefinitely.
    I'm so thankful for my home and it's haven from the world, especially right now.
    Blessings

  2. Dearest Roxy,
    Yes- words of truth. I was somewhat like you- a young rebel until God reached down and changed my heart and I've never looked back at my old ways. Now 45 years later my husband, 3 grown daughters and their husbands and 5 grandbabies are all following the Lord! God is good!
    hugs to you,
    Vickie

  3. Amen Roxy.. so true submitting to the All wise One is true joy hope peace. Lovely thoughts.
    When I see your blog title this is the verse I think of:
    2 Corinthians 3:18
    But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

    Thanks for sharing, and may God bless you and all you love, and keep you well in strange, uncertain times. In God we trust.

  4. Glory be to God! You are such an encouragement to me, Roxy! I love your boldness in Christ! I have been absent from blogging....again. Happy to see your great post here! The weather has been so grand, even in the midst of this crisis....being home, getting things accomplished, and spending time with God has been pretty okay in my book!!! Hopefully we will all come out of this with a closer relationship with our Father, and better understanding of His Word...now wouldn't that be a good thing?! Love you. xo

  5. Your sentence, "How can my life be a daily offering?", is powerful! I don't want to be rebellious, I want to do His will, everyday!
    Thank you for telling us how you came up with your blog title! It's a great remind to walk in this world.
