New Creature

Jesus is the Savior from our sins! He made me a new creature in Christ! AMEN!! Reblogged from Unashamed of Jesus.

Unashamed of Jesus

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 2 Corinthians 5:17

What does it mean to be Born Again? (John 3:3) This is a concept that a lot of Christians seem to have trouble understanding. You are not saved by your religious affiliations, you are not saved by the amount of money you put into the offering plate, and your not saved by doing community service, you are saved by faith through Jesus Christ only!

Now when you truly accept Jesus as your Lord, something begins to happen, you become Born Again. You are baptized with the Holy Spirit and the sanctification process starts to begin. This is how you become a New Creature through Christ

The old things pass away, meaning your old sinful lifestyle. No longer are you a slave to the sins that trap…

Awesome Blogger Award

th.jpg
Lydia nominated me on June 27th, 2019!

Thank you so much, Lydia, for nominating me for the Awesome Blogger Award!! I’M VERY HAPPY!! Please check out her super awesome blog at: https://inhisserviceandlovingit.wordpress.com/ !!

<><><><><><><><>

Here are the rules…

  1. Thank the person/blogger who nominated you.
  2. Tag your post with #awesomebloggeraward.
  3. Answer all the questions given to you.
  4. Nominate at least 5 bloggers and inform them of their nomination.
  5. Give them 10 new questions to answer.

And here are the questions given to me by Lydia Potter:

What is the first thing you notice about a person? The first thing I notice is that person’s face. Then I try to remember that face so that I will recognize that person when we meet again.

What are some challenges you think the next generation will face? The next generation might have a hard time finding jobs since artificial intelligence is getting so high-tech that it’s taking the jobs away from humans. There are many other problems in the world, but God is in sovereign control, and we need not worry.

What is your favorite season and why? I like winter. Well, I think the atmosphere of the season is nice, and it gets nice and cozy in the house with the heater going and the coffee brewing. When it’s cold, we can adjust our body temperature by putting more layers on, but in summer, we can’t do that, and centipedes come out of hiding, so I don’t like summer. And also it feels comfortable in my heavy blankets when I sleep in winter.

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Definitely not fried centipedes, but probably my choice would be taco rice. Once you start eating that it’s unstoppable.

What’s the number one item you would save from your burning house? I would save my translation work. I can’t afford to have all that hard work burned in the flames.

What makes you laugh the most? These fabulous funny videos, listed in Top-3 order!!!

#3 – I Like Orange Juice (Warning: it’s rather ridiculous)

#2 – Kentucky Fried Chicken

And to crown them all…

#1 – WOW… This is totally amazing… 

(Found this video at: https://leeduigon.com/2019/02/01/hank-johnson-four-pressadint/ )

What is your favorite holiday? My favorite holiday is New Year’s Day, celebrating the new year and thanking God for all the countless blessing He has bestowed upon us the past year.

What is your third favorite meal? Hmm… that’s a hard one, but I guess it’s pizza. (#1 = taco rice; #2 = curry rice.)

When was the last time you washed a car? We washed it sometime last week.

What is something you’re looking forward to next week? I’m looking forward to going to church on the Lord’s Day.

Living Hope

Amen! This world is not my home, I’m just passing by. HEAVEN IS MY ETERNAL HOME!! Lord, help me to become a good soldier for you, strong in the faith until the day I die. From Unashamed of Jesus.

Unashamed of Jesus

For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 Corinthians 5:1
Our Earthly Tent which is our bodies is being torn down. Everyday regardless of what you believe, our physical bodies are dying. Some of us suffer disabilities or diseases, for many our daily lives are not easy. However there is hope through Jesus Christ. When our temporary bodies pass away we will be given a Building from God which is our eternal resurrected bodies
For indeed in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven, inasmuch as we, having put it on, will not be found naked. 2 Corinthians 5:2-3
Some people cling on to this world while other suffer and groan waiting for the day to be called home. To…

Steadfast Pictures

Hello!

Lately we have been super busy getting Second Chances prepared to be filmed. There are so many things that go into the making of a movie, including: auditioning actors, getting a good crew, storyboarding, securing locations, plus countless other things. So, please be in prayer for us as we are working on this.

Please pray that God will bring us the cast and crew that He wants us to have, that we will be able to find the right locations to film at, and that every other aspect of this project will work out to ultimately bring glory to Him, and to Him alone.

Your prayers are very much appreciated!

Have a blessed day! 🙂

Honor the Father Tag

img_1213-1.jpg

I have been nominated for the Honor the Father Tag by Jacquie A. Bradford on June 24th, 2019!! Thank you so much, Jacquie!! Please visit and follow her fantastic blog at https://joycottageblog.wordpress.com/

Here are the links to the original authors of this awesome tag: Dollfaced Writer and Purple Rose

From Dollface…

The Meaning of this Tag:

A father is someone who loves his child unconditionally, provides for them, protects them always, teaches them values, disciplines them fairly, and wants the best for them. For that, we should always, ALWAYS have respect for our fathers. They are created to bear the responsibility of caring for and protecting their families just as God calls them to do. Father’s Day is about reminding your father how much you appreciate him, but I hope this tag will perhaps remind you this month how blessed you are to have a father at all.

As I said before, this is a very hard day for me every year. My father and I have a very complex relationship. In fact, it is the polar opposite of my relationship with my mother. Growing up I felt abandoned, rejected, unloved, forgotten, and neglected because of his behavior that stemmed from alcoholism and what I believe could have been other mental health issues (don’t quote me, I’m not a doctor XD).

I will always love my father. He is a part of me, half of me to be exact. However, mustering the strength to honor or respect him at all has taken a long time to do. We talk sometimes over text, but not a lot. Some days he responds and I feel like we’re getting somewhere, then he vanishes like he always did. It has helped living a thousand miles away from him since finishing high school, but I have come to accept the pain I feel from my childhood will never go away. Recently, in the last week actually, he said something that has proven he’ll never change. I was trying to gain closure, but he continues to blame me for things that I may talk about in another post. Anyways, he may move on in his life, which is painful for me to watch, but that doesn’t change the past he continues to deny and blame me for.

If you have a similar situation, whether you have been abused, manipulated, abandoned, or rejected by your father (even someone else in your family), can I give you some advice that has helped me cope with such a toxic relationship?

You have a choice. You can walk away. You can block a number. You can say no. You can cut them off from your life. That doesn’t mean you don’t honor them, that just means you have enough respect for yourself to protect your heart and enough respect for them to love them at a safe distance. You can pray for someone every day and never talk to them again. Isn’t that better than subjecting yourself to more pain and building up further resentment that could become the poison of unforgiveness? I think so, because no one deserves to be abused in any way. You deserve love. If you don’t/didn’t receive that love from your father, always know you have a Father in Heaven who loves you more than your father ever could.

I hope you do have an awesome father though. If you do, give him a bear hug and be grateful to have the best protector you could have on this earth. If you don’t, pray for him, friend.

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you to participate.
2. Use the original featured image.
3. Copy and paste the introduction and meaning of this tag at the beginning of your post, along with the links to both creators’ original posts. *This rule is very important. Please, please link this post and Purple Rose’s post so that as authors we may be alerted when a tag is published. It also gives us proper credit, which is much appreciated. Thank you
4. Answer the questions.
5. Nominate one or more people to participate.
6. Enjoy the rest of your month!

Here are the questions for this month’s tag:

1. What is your relationship like with your biological father, if anything at all?

I have a good relationship with my father, by God’s grace. I thank God for giving me such a kind and loving dad (And of course I thank God for my beautiful mother, too!!).

2. What is one thing you would change about your father if you could? What is one thing you wouldn’t change?

Please forgive me, but I would like to pass on this question. There are many things that I want to change about myself!!

3. Who do you celebrate on Father’s Day (your father, step-father, grandfather, uncle, etc.)?

I celebrate my dad and grandfather on Father’s Day. It is very important to show your gratitude to your father who loves you and takes care of you.

4. What was the most valuable thing he taught you?

The most valuable thing he taught me was about the Lord Jesus Christ, by whom I have access to God and heaven. Jesus Christ saved me from my sins!!!

5. What is one thing he does that you would never do?

He said he used to ride his bike up mountains. I’ll probably never do it! I just don’t have the strength and guts for it…

6. How do you honor him on Father’s Day?

I give him presents and a card. And of course I say “thank you” to him for being my father. And he’ll say, “I was predestined to be your father by God.” It’s amazing to think that even before the world existed God decided that my dad will be my father.

7. How has your relationship with him impacted the person/parent you are today?

I have gotten much of my dad’s traits, which I’m happy about. Thank you, Dad, for teaching me to become a responsible adult and for training me for life.

I will tag…

Hattush, Renee, and Bonnie

(There’s no obligation to do this, my nominees!)

Thanks again for nominating me, Jacquie! It was fun!!
