Not feeling good

We got up this morning and got ready to go to Steve’s. Hubby is doing more volunteer work for him. Today he needs his water heater looked at and his water froze up last night. We arrived and hubby found the cause to his clogged pipes. He has a 3rd tank called a holding tank for his sink and all was needed was the valve opened .. oh and the pipes put back together under the sink he had taken apart. Then it was time to look at the water heater. The heating element was taken out and it had exploded so a new one was bought. Hopefully this will fix his problem.

We then went to Hard Rock for lunch and after lunch we needed to get back home to get Lucy. We took Lucy to the vet to get her staples removed and today they were ready.

I haven’t felt well all day and as the day went on by i continued to feel worse. We had tickets to see 38 special in concert but I'm not feeling well so we skipped. I have spent most of my evening curled up on the couch. I ache all over, my nose is running, my ears and throat hurt.

We will be here at Big Biloxi until Tuesuday as we are paid up until then .. hope your all having a great day.

Prayer request

As you all know from writing in my blog that i have struggled from our recent trials and I have found peace and forgiveness.  I am ready to move forward.  Unfortunately I can not say the same for hubby.  Hubby had thought he had found peace but something else happened this week that has hardened his heart.  He is struggling to understand and find that peace again. 

Last night we had a talk and the tears and emotions came out and the same hurt that i struggled with has overcome him.

This is not hubby’s blog and i am not going to go into details but what i am asking is that you pray for my husband that God will lead him to find peace and understanding. 
I thank you all for reading my journal and following along with me. 

2 Peter continued

“Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord”

As i continued to study God also reminded me that there are also false prophets, just as there are false teachers among me.   I feel God touching my heart and telling me to be careful because these false people will bring swift destruction and deny my sovereign Lord.  Many will believe and follow their destructive ways. 

I feel God speaking to my heart and saying “Pennie just as my word says.  I spared Noah from the great flood.   I rescued Lot, who was a righteous man, who was distressed from the filthy lives of lawless men (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard).  I am your Lord and Savior, you have given your heart and soul to me and as my child I ask you to continue to live your life with a pure heart and soul filled with my spirit.  Let my fruits flow out of you so that others may see and my name will be glorified.  I do know how to rescue my children from their trials and hold the unrighteous accountable for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.  this is especially true for those who follow corruption and have a sinful nature and despise authority.    These men are like beast, born only to be caught and destroyed.   They have left the straight and narrow way and even though they may now relish in their sinful ways, boast their wages of wickedness.  They mouth empty boastful words and desire lustful sinful human nature.  A man is slave to whatever has mastered him.  Any man who escapes corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in a world of wickedness, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning.  It would have better for them not have known the way of righteousness then to have known it and then turned their backs on the sacred command that was passed on them.

As I finished studying 2 Peter.  I felt God telling me to be on guard so that i may not be carried away by the error of lawless men and fall from my secure position.  That i need to continue to grow in God’s grace and knowledge as he my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I am to keep my heart and soul pure with the knowledge he has given me in his word.  That his word has given me everything I need to live a life of knowledge and godliness. If i hold fast to his word and my faith in him i will escape the corruption in the world by these false prophets who claim to be godly. 

I am to make every effort to keep my heart and soul stead fast to God.  By doing this it will keep me from being ineffective and unproductive in my knowledge of God.  Those who do not do hold fast to God’s word forget to do these things.  They become blind and have forgotten that they have been cleansed from past sins.

God’s word says “Therefore my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure.  For if you do these things, you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”.

I close tonight devotion with “ To my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, i hold fast and to him be the glory both now and forever.  I am so thankful to God who is merciful and loving because i am far from deserving of his mercy he shows upon me.
