Making Good Decisions

Making Good Decisions: LadyD Books

Hi There!

I don't know what you are experiencing during these challenging times... I can tell you that it has been easy for my husband and me to stay quarantined for almost 5 months. What isn't easy is thinking through every decision and making good ones regarding disinfecting everything and everyone!

So, in order for us to make good decisions, together we seek the Lord daily for clarity. I think we all learn the hard way sometimes. Quite often when our dreams become nightmares many times we choose the wrong goal. " Ecclesiastes 2:1-11

Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done
    and what I had toiled to achieve,
everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;
    nothing was gained under the sun.
Sometimes we reach Destination Sickness. Often it's a Dead End Syndrome. You know what I mean...  We took the wrong path! Ouch! Or how about this one, the Alexandra Syndrome. Alexandra wept and thought it wasn't what it should have been.

The word of God says in Proverbs 16:9, "In their hearts, humans plan their course,
    but the Lord establishes their steps."

So, I am learning some Pillar Facts and these are not assumptions. Pillar Advice would be to ask and glean from the experts. A humble heart and a teachable spirit are good. Finally, the Pillar Impact asks, 'What are the long term and hidden consequences?"

I ask myself these very important questions:

"Is this the right time?"
"Is it the right way?"
"Am I the right person?"

I am learning lots from Moses in Proverbs 16:9. I have been reading about Jacob in Genesis and reading about David in 1 Chron. 22. Indeed, when we get through this awful COVID virus, there will be no doubt that God's grace got us through. Stay safe, everyone!

Happy Reading!

He Will Come Back

Dear Readers,

I am living in a very different world right now. I never thought in my lifetime I would experience these humungous changes due to the virus. Many of my friends say we are living in the last days and that it's going to get worse. Well, I woke up thinking about the lovely day ahead of me. How I have experienced self-confinement for 5 weeks now. That means I have had lots of time to read my Bible and do some outdoor gardening.

I think the bottom line is: Jesus will return physically to this world during the great Day of the Lord to establish His kingdom. In the meantime, believers are to walk worthy and battle faithfully as they impact this world for Christ! Here are a few points to consider:

  1. Does The Mission grip the mind and heart of early believers and yours also? Acts 1:1-8
  2. Are you anticipating the work of the Spirit in your life? Acts 1:8
  3. Is this a conviction of yours, the reality of seeing Jesus again? This is the core belief of early Christians. Acts 1: 9-11
I am pretty sure a change is coming. What we're experiencing may be the birth pains... Here are some important truths regarding the return of Christ:

  1. You will see Jesus in the future! (either at His return or at death) Acts 1:11
  2. It will be the same, Jesus. He will find you!
  3. It will be a physical return.
  4. It will be in the clouds. Matt. 24:30
  5. Do not set return dates. Matt. 24:36-38
You know, there's a lot of info out there regarding views on the rapture...
All I know is that I want to be ready to receive Him. To take this time to evangelize others. To actively serve Christ and yield to the Lord daily.

Happy reading!
