When I was a youngster one of my chores was to visit the solitary elderly women in our neighborhood. Not only to help them, but more importantly to be eager listening ears. One vow this led me to make was,
“If I grow old my song might be I wish I hadn’t – never – I wish I had. That is generally how I lived my life, not totally selfish, but still with a will to have my itches scratched. So that will show up in the book as well.
I was writing about order in the house and up comes women in a teaching ministry. To be out of order is to: intrude, disrupt, disquiet, etc. Women must pay strict attention to the same scriptural guidelines as men:
Do Not go where you are not welcome.
Do not disrupt another s teaching unless gross error is being taught- then only to point out the error – not to take over the meeting or displace the teacher.
Do not add to another s work. Each has a certain tone/manner and they will draw those who can flourish under their care/ not yours. So do not raid the flock, let Yahweh send to you those He wants there. It is for their good they come, not your ego. If you are standing where Yahweh wants all will fall in place in His time!
The words I most desire to hear from my Father Yahweh are:” Welcome home Daughter you have been faithful and your place at My table awaits you eagerly.” Those words will be especially precious to me since my earthly father did not utter them.
We live in a crazy world and I have been told I am crazy for walking this walk as I do. So a little crazy is maybe not a bad thing for it allows me to believe the unbelievable – that Yahweh loves me and walks with me.
Great gifts like great power, in proportion to the scope, to do great good or great harm. The one gifted carries the full responsibility for what they do with the gift when they become adults. In their childhood those who have the rule over them bear that responsibility in both the physical and spiritual. If used for good the blessings of Yahweh will follow, if for evil then they give a temporary victory to the enemies of Yahweh.
Scripture speaks of inordinate love – love not properly ordered or regulated, not kept in proper limits, unrestrained affections in conduct or possessions.
This is the kind of passion that people throw their families away for.
Today I realize more fully it is not what I make of my self that is my gift to my creator, but what I joyfully allow Him to make of me – that is what I will give back to Him at my home coming. How? By every choice, seeking His will to obey with JOY. Having received the gift of life twice, 1st at my natural birth, and secondly at my baptism into Yahshua’s name, I wish to serve my life giver. Do I always do it properly? Do I really, really, always obey joyfully? No I am also human and my flesh does play a part, so, no I can complain with the best of them and then must hang my head in shame when I am reminded of all Yahweh has done for me, and is still doing. No matter how many times I fail, I am not a failure if I get back up and try again. You only fail when you quit trying.
Father I thank You for the life you have given, especially when I have let You be in charge. I still thank You for this life when I have insisted on my own choices for the protection you have given by preserving my life and helping me through the consequences of my bad choices.
