I have been tagged 4 times.LOL

I have been tagged by several of my friends.Guess they want to know a little more about me.:)
Barb(Mrs.Miles)
Jen (Angel)
Michaele (jburkhart)
Marlene (sindiego)
Their links are in my sidebar.:)

I am suppose to list seven things about myself.Some funny etc. I have been trying to come up with something interesting that maybe you don't know.I have told you most everything there is about myself except these few things. So here goes.LOL

This will be different than what you are use to..but this is the real me.:)

1)I have been a born again believer in Christ Jesus since I was eight years old.I am 54 now and love him more than I ever thought possible.
2)I have been healed several times throughout my life..INSTANTLY..So ..YES..I believe in divine healing. I also believe it is God that shows us mercy and he is the potter and we are the clay.So ..he chooses if and when he will heal us.I broke my ankle ..very badly twenty years ago.God has healed me of several things in the mean time..but not this...YET!:)The apostle Paul prayed three times for the messenger of satan to be taken away from him..but God told him.."My Grace is sufficient for thee". Later Apostle Paul writes...2 Corinthians 12:10
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
God uses the weak to confound the wise.:)
I also believe..Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
3.I believe in a close relationship with the Lord.I believe if you draw to God...he draws to you.I like to say he "runs" to you.He is anxious to show you of himself..but wants you to diligently (characterized by steady, earnest, and energetic effort : painstaking) seek him.In other words..undivided attention.

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must , believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently(characterized by steady, earnest, and energetic effort : painstaking) seek him.

4)I believe Christ is going to return to take his children (believers) home to be with him.From the looks of the way this world is going..that may not be a long time from now.:) Matthew 24.

5.I am overweight..limp..have back problems..need my teeth fixed..going gray more than brown now...wrinkled... my eyes are going bad..and I believe the Lord is going to use my DH and I tremendously some day.:)

Romans 6:13
Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

I look at it this way.God wants us to yield ourselves to him..so he can use us.
Does an instrument play itself? NO..the master of that instrument..picks it up..polishes it...and tunes it perfectly..before he plays it.When he is the one who made the instrument and knows each and every detail that went into designing it..who else is better to play that instrument than he is.? The instrument sits on a shelf until the master decides to use it again.It doesn't mean he doesn't like that instrument..or he doesn't want that instrument..it means he isn't ready to play it again...yet.:)So ..if you are in a dry time..be patient and wait on the Lord.

Isaiah 40:31
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

6.) If you get me talking about the Lord..I may not quit.LOL

7.) I have always wanted to be able to give to others and was not financially able... so that is why I LOVE giving my freebies away.:)

I am going to tag everyone in my sidebar.:)

This is one of my very favorite songs..hope you like it.:)
