HONOR THE SABBATH DAY AND KEEP IT HOLY


I  am  sure  that  at  sometime  you  have  heard  the

statement,  Honor  The  Sabbath  Day  and  Keep  it

Holy.

It  is  that  little  word  HOLY,  that  makes  those  not

serving  the  LORD,  think,  that  a  "CHRISTIAN,"  is

"HOLY"...better  than  them...that  they  are  losers  because

they  won't  smoke,  drink,  and  have  wild  sex...they  won't

make  fun  of  the  fat  person   or the disabled person, 

 and  they  will  not  pass  on

rumors  that  are  not  true.

Do  you  know  how  many  christians,  teenagers

and  adults,

  try  to  kill  themselves

over  rumors  that  are  vicious  lies...they  feel  isolated  while

the  groupies  are  laughing  and  deciding  who  to  hurt  next.

I pray  that  none  of  you  dear  people  follow  that  kind  of

group.  I  have  two  friends  that  really  like  me  but  will

only  e  mail  me  because  they  don't  want  a  member  of

their  group  to  see  they  talked  to  me.

I DO NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT I DID TO BE ABANDONED.

I do think it is very selfish to say I am not going to

follow your blog because the group want.

I serve the Lord not the group...

and  least  not  those  who  come around to stir up

trouble by trying to catch you saying bad things...........

LIFE IS SO VERY FULL OF SADNESS AND SICKNESS  TO

PLAY SUCH CHILDISH GAMES.  GROW UP....YOU'RE  ADULTS

YOU  COULD  BE  SUCH HELP  TO  PEOPLE

Is  that  not  sad,  because  they  are  being  controlled  by  the

"fear"  of  being  abandoned  by  their  "friends." 

That  makes  me  cry.

NO  ONE  SHOULD  HAVE  THAT  KIND  OF  CONTROL  OVER

ANYONE...that  is  how  the  devil  works... 


The  Bible  says:  "If  any  of  you  lacks  wisdom,

you  should  ask  God,  who  gives  generously  to  all

without  finding  fault,  and  it  will  be  given  to  you."

~James  1: 5

God  will  give  all  of  us  wisdom,  if  we  only  ask.

I  would choose wisdom  over  all  the  riches  in  the  world.


TO  HONOR  THE  SABBATH  DAY  AND  KEEP  IT

HOLY,  to  me  means...

1.  praising  the  Lord  for  every  issue

2.  refraining  from  your  TV  and  games  and 

studying  Psalms  and  another  chapter  in

the bible

3.  spend  some  family  time  singing  and

enjoying  the  day,  the  Lord  and  each  other.

4.  Talk  about  wisdom,  salvation,  and  teaching

your  children  how  to  worship  the  lord

5.  there  is  no  better  way  to  start  your  week

JESUS  LOVES  THEM.

HAVE  A  SUGAR  SWEET  DAY

HUGS

Debbie, I can't imagine someone not being friends with a person because they are a Christian, but I guess it does happen. How terribly sad.

I have found that most people I know (bloggers and non bloggers) are just trying to make it through life, day to day and just want a little kindness along the way from others. I think it behooves us as Christians to try our best to walk with Him and walk in love toward our fellow man. After all, that's the first commandment: to love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your might and to love your neighbor as yourself. And one way to do that is to pray for others and their needs. You are doing just that.

Happy Sunday to you...

XO,

Sheila :-)

I hope you have a blessed Sunday and that others read your beautiful post.

While I certainly do believe you, I can't believe some people would do that to you, sweetpea! How childish and petty of them. I preach, teach and nag holiness to friends. Sabbath for us is Church, then spending time together. No shopping, no eating out, no buying gas, nothing but staying home and fixing a simple meal so I don't have to work all day. It's a time to relax and reflect on God in our opinion. I've always wondered what "Keeping Sabbath Holy" meant to others.

I'm so sorry your friends don't publicly acknowledge you. How rude of them to want the vain wishes of the world to ignore you. And what have you done to warrant this kind of behavior?! My sympathy, dear one.

xoxo,
Connie

Thank you for this post, your wise words and beautiful illustrations and the prayer requests you list.

MosaicMagpie said...

I THINK WE SHOULD CONCENTRATE THE GOOD THINGS. GAURD OUR HEARTS, MINDS AND SPEAK THE TRUTH. CARE FOR THOSE AROUND US AND THE ONES THAT ARE PLACED UPON OUR HEARTS. YOU ARE A CARING FRIEND AND A PRAYING FRIEND. I HOPE YOU WILL NOT BE TROUBLED BY ADVERSITY AND KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE. WELL DONE, MY FRIEND.

At my age, I don't worry if I'm friends or not with most people...following the Lord is more important, isn't it? it does hurt a bit though, we are only human....I'll be praying for God's comfort...love your prayer request line...could you pray for us...no money coming in now...we are owed but not being paid,

Faith Hope Cherrytea ~ said...

since we 'become' what we 'behold' it serves us well to behold Christ firstly and become like Him rather than focussing on any other replacement. and as we focus on Him we become the LOVE that He is. we will never win another other than by LOVE... rules and regs are the world's way to control. Christ is GRACE & Peace... as you focus your mind on Him today, let His Peace mount a guard around your heart & mind just as He promises to do when we follow that Christlike path...

CHERI said...

Debbie, I don't understand people like these you've mentioned. I'm so thankful that there are people like you in the world who are loving, giving, and forgiving. Life is difficult at best and we should all love and help and pray for each other, not try to bring anyone down. You are a dear for sharing your blog and your prayers. God loves you and so do I!

Kim Hanauer said...

Sweet Debbie,
I will pray for those precious souls! What a Blessing a blog has given me! I give God all the glory in my life. He is first and He leads me in the right direction. Sometimes I might stumble off the beaten path, but He always shows me the way.
You touched my heart as I scrolled down and read the sweetest comments from you about my blog, my art and me...
I never knew blogging would change my life. I have truly found a gentle Christian heart in you! Thank you Debbie for sending your sweet friends my way and I will surely do the same.

Blessings and Sweet Dreams~

Hi there Debbie!
Thank you so much for the visit and your sweet comments...it's always great to hear from you.
I hope you're having a great start to a new week.
Oh, and to answer your question - no, the half doll lamp doesn't work. I removed the original wiring because it was just too old to be safe. I did keep the original dress which was dry rotted - thought it could be used as a pattern for another.

Hugs,

Hi Debbie,

Thanks for visiting me over at my site. It's always fun to meet new people, especially those who share the same interests!

I'd love to write more but I had a heck of a day and need to sleep now. Will chat later!

Sweet Simply Debbie, We will agree to pray for those who would despise us because we love the Lord.
You are a blessing to many people. Just keep on serving the Lord and doing his will.
Our treasure is not of this world. Our supreme treasure will be our entering into his presence.
Be not faint of heart. We love you. Your friend in Christ, Ginger

Hi Debbie,

Beautiful post in honor of the Sabbath.

You are right, this country needs jobs most of all. Everything else will fall into place after that in this country.

*hugs always*

I DON'T GET THAT EITHER DEBBIE - I CAN'T EVEN UNDERSTAND WHY THEY TOLD YOU THAT. I'M SO SORRY. (HUG)

WE NEED TO QUIT WORRYING WHAT OTHERS THINK - AND WORRY WHAT GOD THINKS.

LOVE,
SANDIE
