Be Free, Be Saved


God has been moving in our church.  When a man of God in your life is specific, and reminds you that you will not be saved, you reflect in all areas of your life that you may need to work on. I could easily justify my bitterness and pain with the things I have dealt with the last few years.  And I could make excuses, and live daily with them, but I choose to let go and be free.  There will be no excuses when we meet God.  He has provided us provisions to get through these times and why do we ignore them? If we are bitter and unforgiving, we WILL NOT be saved. How do we know we've truly forgiven and bitterness is gone....when we respond as Christ would.  He forgives our sins and FORGETS.....he doesn't keep reminding us of the past.  He doesn't daily grind at us about our mistakes.  He doesn't stop going to church.  When we can look at the situation, and truly feel no animosity towards the situation,  then we have forgiven.

I want God to call my name....I don't want to go through all this and not make it to heaven.  I woke with this burning in my heart and maybe this is a revelation I've received, but I am telling you with love, that we will not take our excuses and self justifications of why we are the way we are to heaven. There will be no excuses on judgement day. It doesn't matter how good your works have been, or how much you've done in the kingdom of God the last umpteen years. He will not know your name.  Be free.....and be saved.

With all my love!

The Beginner's Bible | Come Celebrate Easter

 


Zondervan Kidz
Design: Judy Langley

The Easter story comes to life through age-appropriate puzzles, activity pages, and stickers in this friendly and fun The Beginner’s Bible Easter Sticker and Activity Book featuring classic art and simply written content from The Beginner’s Bible.


This was a very neat book and perfect because it is almost Easter.  My granddaughter, who is four, loved this book.  She was able to easily pull the stickers off and place them on the appropriate pages.  With the stickers and other activities, it will be for older children also.  We did that part together.  The illustrations are bright and story very easy to follow.  You want something new and fun.....your child will love this book!

God Bless My Boo Boo


 God Bless My Boo Boo is the perfect remedy for healing little hurts with a healthy dose of love! Even the smallest scratches, bumps, and scrapes can often be fairly traumatic for little ones. When simple injuries happen, God Bless My Boo Boo is like a warm hug that helps to erase the pain. With comforting words, readers go through adorable scenes of baby animals and their boo boos and remind children that God is always there to help! Just like Mommy Zebra makes a scraped knee better, or Mommy Walrus helps tend a toothache, moms will be able to use this book to make their little ones' boo boos all better!



This is the most adorable book.  My granddaughter actually loved it! I know your child will love it too.  It is a hard page book, more for a younger age, but the illustrations were so pretty and eye catching, that my four year old granddaughter was happy to read it.  She could easily relate to the story of getting hurt and very interested in all of the animals.  Such a cute book!  You will not regret buying this book for your child!!
