Christmas In July & Freebies!  

A dear friend just sent me this lovely prayer. I am praying it for her and all of you:

"May today be all you need it to be. May the peace of God and the freshness of the Holy Spirit rest in your thoughts, rule in your dreams tonight, and conquer all your fears. May God manifest Himself today in ways you have never experienced before. May your joys be full, your dreams be closer, and your prayers be answered. I pray that faith enters a new height for you; I pray that your territory is enlarged, I pray for peace, healing, health, happiness, prosperity, joy, true and undying love for God." In Jesus' holy name, amen!

Here's today's gifts for you and don't miss my Christmas In July Special below - what a fabulous kit and it's free!

Christmas In July & Freebies!  

  • "Now the LORD said to Samuel, "How long will you grieve over Saul, since I have rejected him from being king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and go; I will send you to Jesse the Bethlehemite, for I have selected a king for Myself among his sons." 1 Samuel 16:1Samuel had anointed Saul as king over Israel. Apparently he grew close to Saul as he ruled. Saul sinned and God rejected him as king and chose David to replace him. In this passage He is sending Samuel to anoint David to be king over Israel in Saul's stead.
What I find interesting is, "How long will you grieve over Saul, since I have rejected him". He was not pleased that Samuel was grieving over Saul's demise. He told Samuel that the fact that He, God, had rejected Saul should be enough for Samuel to simply accept it and go on, not grieve over Saul's condition even though they were friends. Wow.

Because God is perfect in all His ways, because God sees the end from the beginning and makes no mistakes nor can He sin, all His judgements are just and righteous and to such a depth that we human beings cannot even fathom. We are to simply trust Him and move on, even if it involves someone we love. Again, wow! This one hits me personally and I am working to apply this to my life.

Today I have three wonderful gifts for you - these two 12" floral borders I made with flowers by GrannyArt and a super CHRISTMAS IN JULY special offer -
Spend $12 in my store and get this huge Ribbon Sculptures Kit free till the end of July! Kit details here.

Purplicious Alpha by Lynette's Photo Art  

Any American who has actually put forth the effort to find out what has really been going on in the highest office in our government the last two years needs to follow this direction from our God:

  • “Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.” Isaiah 41:10
That is not a promise that He will not allow great evil to come upon our land or upon we Christians, but He promises that He will cause ALL things to work together for good to those who love and obey Him, no matter what our earthly situation. We are not to fear as we see what is happening, but to set set our faith in Him.

We are not helpless. If every American who wears His name would obey this scripture on a continual basis, the outcome for our country might well be altered, or at least judgment and the just consequences for our nation's sins and bad choices might be further delayed. If you won't do it for yourself, then do it for your children:
  • "If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. " 2 Chronicles 7:14
That's for US brethren - Pray America! Repent, Stop Sinning and PRAY! Awake from your slumber saying all is well and find out the truth. Christians, it is long past the hour to rend your garments, cover yourself with ashes, fall face to the ground and get serious with our God. He alone can save us and time is running out fast. How sad that most will look up one day and be shocked at what has happened, because they were too busy enjoying their lives and buying the lies the propaganda "news media" feeds us, to find the truth and take action in the poles and on their knees, each man speaking to his neighbor and co-workers while there is yet a chance at hope. If those who have given their lives over hundreds of years for this country could see what we, the people, have allowed to happen, they would likely reconsider their sacrifices. Awake America! Now!

My gift for you today is this cool Purplicious Alpha. It's free today, then it will be in the store, so snag it while you can or buy it later to help support the blog. Enjoy! (click the image to enlarge).

Clematis 7 by Lynette's Photo Art  

Little Boo loves people food, but it makes her tiny 4.5 lb. body so sick and in very icky ways. She wants it SO badly. She sits right next to me as I eat on the sofa, just inches from my plate. She could lunge and get it (she's so fast). She could bark and whine and make a nuisance of herself. But she sits humbly and silently pleads with her eyes looking from me to the food and back, over and over again, imploring me.

I love my BooBoo! SO MUCH! I want to fill her life with every good thing and I don't want to withhold any good thing from her, especially knowing her life here is so brief (being a dog). I can't let her have her heart's desire because although she will be happy for a moment if I give it to her, she will suffer after and sometimes for several days. How I wish I could explain this to her so she would not feel unloved and deprived. But I can't. She does not understand. I can only hope she rests in my love and trusts me.

As a Christian, we humbly come to our Father in Heaven and lay our deepest heartfelt petitions before Him. His Word says that if we are His and ask "in accordance with His will", He will grant it. When we don't get what we asked for, we think, I wasn't aggressive and irreverent. I didn't rudely try to command Him to fulfill my prayers. I didn't whine and cry and make a nuisance of myself. I humbly came to Him and respectfully laid my heart's desires before Him. Yet, nothing.

We know He is omnipotent, all seeing and all knowing. We know nothing is too great for Him to do. We have tried so hard to ask with proper hearts, in proper ways and we truly believe we are asking in His will. So why?

He loves you SO MUCH! He wants to fill your life with every good thing and He doesn't want to withhold any good thing from you, especially knowing your life here is so brief (being a human). He can't let you have your heart's desire because although you will be happy for a moment if He grants your prayer, it will not be what's best for you and you will suffer. How He wishes you could understand this so you would not feel unloved and deprived. But you can't. You do not understand as His thoughts are too high for you. He hopes you will rest in His love and trust Him.

Today I'm giving you a flower from my Grungy Clematis Kit that goes with my Pop Fun Kit perfectly! Enjoy!

Yellow Bird by Lynette's Photo Art  

Like many, I have wondered at God accepting Abel's sacrifice and rejecting Cain's - which of course lead to the first murder. The Bible doesn't record a direct command from God as to what would be acceptable, so we wonder... Reading The Bait of Satan by John Bevere has shed light on this.

In the garden, when man first sinned, Adam and Eve tried to cover themselves with fig leaves (representing their own works to cover their sin). "God demonstrated acceptable sacrifice by covering Adam and Eve with the skin of an innocent animal."

Both brothers would have grown up hearing this story. "Adam and Eve had been ignorant of this unacceptable covering of their sin. But having been shown God's way they were no longer ignorant, nor where their children."

I saw this cute bird by Americo at Creative Mundi. I created it from scratch just to see if I could recreate it myself. I have received special permission from Americo and Creative Mundi to give my bird away for this day only and under the stipulation that it is for personal use only and NOT FOR COMMERCIAL USE. My thanks to them! You can see his work here.If you like it well enough to download, please leave me a comment at the bottom of this post as I have disabled 4shared comments.

Line Element by Lynette's Photo Art  

Gifts of the Spirit and Fruit of the Spirit are different things.

1 Corinthians 12:7-11 lists the Gifts of the Spirit as:

  • But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.
Galatians 5:22-23 lists the Fruit of the Spirit as:
  • the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
A gift is something given - fruit is something cultivated.

We receive Spiritual Gifts. We labor with the Holy Spirit of God to develop Fruit of the Spirit.

Today I'm giving you this fun 12" line element. It's enlarged in the preview to show you the great detail.

Lifehouse - Storm and a freebie  

This is another great praise and worship song that I hope you will enjoy. It's Storm by the same group that brought us the wonderful video you see at the top of my blog, Lifehouse.

Storm by Lifehouse

how long have I
been in this storm
so overwhelmed by the ocean's shapeless form
water's getting harder to tread
with these waves crashing over my head

if I could just see you
everything will be alright
if I'd see you
the storminess will turn to light

and I will walk on water
and you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright
and everything will be alright

I know you didn't
bring me out here to drown
so why am I 10 feet under and upside down
barely surviving has become my purpose
cause I'm so used to living underneath the surface

if I could just see you
everything will be alright
if I see you
the storminess will turn to light

and I will walk on water
and you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright

and I will walk on water
you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright
I know everything is alright
everything's alright

Today's gift for you is this really cool 3D round frame - hope you enjoy it!
