A blog of randomness!

Well, I have so many thoughts running through my head...they don't all go together but they are pretty good and I want to share with y'all!

This is my bonus year with CD, and it really is a bonus for all that she is teaching me. She is such a student of the Word (Bible) and truly seeks God so our morning conversations are rich and full of something new she has come across. One of those conversations revolves around verses found in 1 Corinthians:

1 Corinthians 6:12 NIV
[Sexual Immorality] "Everything is permissible for me"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible for me"--but I will not be mastered by anything.

1 Corinthians 10:23 NIV
[The Believer's Freedom] "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is constructive.

Wow! Those are powerful. I have run across them before, and been blown away, but this time I really feel like God wants me to grasp the truth of these verses...everything is permissible! Everything is not just permissible for me but for others as well, so another area to learn a special grace! I would ask that if you have a Bible close by, that you read the verses around these to get the context of these verses.

Another passage that is changing my heart is Acts 9. We are studying through Acts in our ABF class on Sunday morning and this week we are reading chapter 9. This is the chapter where Saul is met on the Damascus Road by Christ Himself and truly becomes a Christ follower after just persecuting those that were believers! This passage has spoken to me that it is really NEVER TOO LATE to see Jesus for who He really is...our Savior! I can't give up on those around me that seem to be so far from the Truth, I still desire to love them any way that I can.

Okay...next piece of random...hubs and I talked tonight and in the coming weeks, I would really like to share some of my personal testimony. Not exactly sure when I will have time for that but if you would be interested in reading it, would you please let me know? I do not want to bore any of you!

Next...Right now I am reading Hear No Evil, the latest book by Matthew Paul Turner. It is an awesome, easy read and I will be reviewing it right here next week. Also, I will be giving a copy of Hear No Evil away - sponsored by his publisher!!! I am pretty excited about it!

Well, I think that is all that I have for now. Are you looking forward to Valentine's Day or is it just another day for you? No matter how you feel about the day, may I say

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow....

God's girl, Pamela

Thanks for sharing what God is speaking to you through His Word. I need to do that this week as well. I just found a scripture that refers to getting older and I certainly need to be encouraged, this my 41st year coming up.

I love Valentine's Day - I love the colors and the candy and a really fun reason to go out to dinner. Not that I really need another reason since we go out all the time but I love it anyway!!!

Look forward to your testimony and book review!!!!
