A Bit About me

Welcome to my personal weblog! I have many areas of interest as a Christian wife and home schooling mother of 6 girls: writing, poetry, website design, digital photography, a home business (sewing); however, this blog will focus more on the wonderful journey the Lord has brought our family through and what the Lord has shown me in His Holy Word.

I know that my devotionals don't often speak of specifics in our lives, but I want my readers to know that what I write comes most often from what the Lord is doing in our lives, or has done. I don't just repeat words by this preacher or that one. My devotionals are often written through a haze of tears, sometimes in grief, sometimes in peace at God's goodness for what He is doing for our good. At other times, after a flood of tears over my lack of faith in His great plan for us, especially after I've seen Heaven's gates open in another miraculous answer to prayer. What I write is what God shows me through those trials which He brings because of His great goodness as He works out His perfect plan. - Angela.

Mourning for Our Sin

This is something the Lord worked me over with a few weeks back. I hope this thought stays with me a long time as I believe  it will be of great benefit.

And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons. 1 Samuel 16:1 

Let’s look at what is going on here. The Lord has rejected Saul as king because he wouldn’t submit to the Lord.

Samuel the prophet, who personally anointed Saul, is heartbroken. He is mourning, which is lamenting or  bewailing. He is so focused on the situation that he isn’t doing anything else for the Lord.

This is how the Lord spoke to me through this passage.

“How long wilt thou mourn for thy sin seeing I have rejected it from reigning over thy heart?â€?

OUCH!!!! Yes, I know that hurt. Remember, the Lord worked on me first!

When we become a child of God, the Lord is now to be the ruler of our heart and life, but do we have sin that we miss, or are holding on to, or mourning, lamenting or bewailing over? Am I wanting that sin so badly that I can’t focus on doing God’s will for my life?

So I have two questions for you today:

1. Are you a child of God? If not, please read God’s Simple Plan of Salvation or contact me.
2. Who/what is reigning in your heart? Is God sitting on the throne of your heart or does your lust for your sin have or keep trying to take His place?
