God and the City

Have you ever Felt this Way? Part II of IIII

Did you Know that a Jelly Fish has no Brain? Works of the Flesh My Friend…Works of the Flesh…

Temptation. Which I now realize are Distractions. (<—Revelation 1)

You see, I used to think of temptation as SIN, You know, falling into the serious Stuff such as Adultery O_O.

Which I looked it Up…

Synonyms of Sin
1.  trespass, violation. 2.  wrong, wickedness. 4.  transgress, trespass.

(side note: I thought the Synonym of Sin would entail More of where I’m going with this..)

I was lost in translation. Sin is not just Lust, Adultery, Greed, Sloth, etc.

Temptation can result in Sin.

Sin is actually doing things outside of GOD‘s will for you. I’m sure you’ve heard  that sin means “Missing the Mark“. They are also Distractions from God‘s Path. “Trespassingto territories where we do not belong. Where God‘s Love does not Abide.

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

God‘s will is not intended for us to Feel bad about ourselves. In the contrary He wants you to know that You are Forgiven and the way Back to the Path is through Jesus Christ who Suffered & Died For our Sins.

Staying in Love is a conscience decision we must make every time!

We do not belong outside of God‘s Will. PERIOD. Doing things Outside of GOD‘s word is a Sin.

We prove ourselves by our purity, our understanding, our patience, our kindness, by the Holy Spirit within us, and by our sincere love. 2 Corinthians 6:6

Workings of the Flesh? Yup Sin

Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. James 1:15

You see Temptation is a desire that is outside of God‘s will. Which leads to death

We Sin therefore we Die.

But I noticed people do not like to Admit “I’ve Sin“. They rather say…Oh I made a mistake… which really means “Oh I’ve Sin” but “sugar coated”.

Let’s Just call it what it is.

If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 1 John 1:8

I was oblivious to this. Yes, I Sin. At times I miss the Mark, At times I do Stray. YES, I am a Sinner. Crying No Scratch that!

I’m more than a Conqueror. Jesus Christ Died for Me…

I’m Forgiven! Hallelujah!

YOU are FORGIVEN!

Amen!

Glory Be to GOD the MOST HIGH!!!

We always have to remember that when we fall down, repeat Out loud Confess with your Mouth,

Jesus Christ Saved Me!”

Read over MARK 15.

When we are tempted we must crucify the flesh, We must take up the Cross,

And Confess GOD‘s ETERNAL WORD.

I believe when many of Us “Christians” Receive the Gift of Salvation we tend to Forget that, PRIDE is a SIN. A HUGE One!

I Love Colossians 3:23. Beautiful &

Colossians 3V23

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”

Our Father God, here we come in front of your throne of grace and my prayer is that you guide each of us to reflect your light wherever we are, with whatever we are pre-occupied and work on. Whatever we do, help us to do it for your glory and to work with gratitude and thankfulness in our heart. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen!

The Lord is a wise God. His wisdom is continuously reflected within the Bible.

Each human being is working. A baby has a work to do, an infant as well, an adult and an elder. Work never stops! The baby needs to survive and learn eventually to stand on two feet, the infant needs to memorize and copy everything around, an adult…has…

I started first with the Design God Had Given Me. With the Vision. God Finished the Rest. ^_^

At the End of My Journey creating this Bold Handbag. I came across a single carnation. Given to me as a gift. I have a sweet & very soft spot for Flowers. I knew this Flower was from GOD.

Flowers are amazing aren’t they ladies?

Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. Songs 2:12

Well as a “Believer” I know that GOD is one of the most Purposeful Entities in the Universe, of course, OF ALL TIME! I also Know He works through us and through others. AMEN! Glory Be to GOD the Most High! Hallelujah!

So I wondered, why a Carnation? And I wondered why was the Holy Spirit Prompting me to Use it in the Pictures with Emerald Bold (alias Emerald Bowl)

I surfed the web, and came across these beautiful sentences…

Christians believe that the first carnation bloomed on earth when Mary wept for Jesus as he carried his cross.Photobucket

(incarnation), referring to the incarnation of God-made flesh.

God you are AMAZING! I Love you! I love you Jesus Christ! You are My Savior!
