Scripture Showers

For Protection:

"If you make the Most High your dwelling---even the Lord, who is my refuge -- then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone."
Psalm 91:9-12
"Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."
Isaiah 41:10

Know and Tell Friday!

Question 1

(In honor of my best fwend today.... she has been so ill :( How often do you get real sick?

I really don't get sick often at all. It's been that way ever since I can remember. I remember wanting to be sick so I could stay home from school just for one day.

Question 2

Do you usually send serious or humorous greeting cards? Why?

I usually send serious ones because I like to be a blessing to others by giving words of encouragement, wisdom, and appreciation.

Question 3

Are you a person who has a whole lot of acquaintances, or just a few very close friends? I have both.

I have very few close friends because true friends are hard to come by. I hold what the Bible says a true friend should be to heart and it is hard to find genuine people who have the same belief/standards. I have many acquaintances because I believe that we are to live at peace with everyone we come in contact with. I am always looking to see who I can be a blessing to as well.

Question 4

If you could cure a disease, or heal a sickness, which one would you choose?

For me the answer to this one would be all of them -- I can't pick just one! I don't like to see people suffer especially from a terminal illness.

Bonus Questions

Question 5

What does "being spiritual" mean to you?

It means that I am living a life that is pleasing to God everyday. And walking in the fruit of the spirit.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit."
(Galatians 5:22-25)

Question 6

Imagine you were talking to someone who did not believe in God and Jesus... How would you explain to them that Jesus is Real (from your experiences in your own life)?

I would begin by telling them who Jesus is and what He has done for us. I would use the Scriptures and relate it to different life situatons and struggles that many people go through today. Then I would give them my personal testimony of how Jesus saved me.
