"A mediocre Master tells, a good Master teaches, an excellent Master explains, but a True Master inspires. ~Anonymous~
Love is patient,
love is kind, and is not jealous;
love does not brag and is not arrogant,
does not act unbecomingly;
it does not seek its own,
is not provoked,
does not take into account a wrong suffered,
does not rejoice in unrighteousness,
but rejoices with the truth;
bears all things,
believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails;
Satan called a worldwide convention of demons.
In his opening address he said,
"We can't keep Christians from going to church."
"We can't keep them from reading their Bibles and knowing the truth....."
"We can't even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their SAVIOR."
"Once they gain that connection with JESUS, our power over them is broken."
"So let them go to their churches; let them have their covered dish dinners, BUT steal their time, so they don't have time to develop a relationship with JESUS CHRIST."
"This is what I want you to do," said the devil:
"Distract them from gaining hold of their SAVIOR and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!"
"How shall we do this?" his demons shouted.
"Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds," he answered....
"Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow, borrow."
"Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work 6-7 days each week, 10-12 hours a day, so they can afford their empty lifestyles."
"Keep them from spending time with their children."
"As their families fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape from the pressures of work!"
"Over-stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still, small voice."
"Entice them to play the radio or I-Pod whenever they drive." To keep the TV, DVDs, CDs and their PCs going constantly in their home and see to it that every store and restaurant in the world plays non-biblical music constantly."
"This will jam their minds and break that union with CHRIST."
"Fill the coffee tables with magazines and newspapers."
"Pound their minds with the news 24 hours a day."
"Invade their driving moments with billboards."
"Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogs, sweepstakes, and every kind of newsletter and promotional offering free products, services and false hopes."
"Keep skinny, beautiful models on the magazines and TV so their husbands will believe that outward beauty is what's important, and they'll become dissatisfied with their wives "
"Keep the wives too tired to love their husbands at night."
"Give them headaches too!"
"If they don't give their husbands the love they need, they will begin to look elsewhere."
"That will fragment their families quickly!"
"Give them Santa Claus to distract them from teaching their children the real meaning of Christmas."
"Give them an Easter bunny so they won't talk about HIS resurrection and power over sin and death....."
"Even in their recreation, let them be excessive."
"Have them return from their recreation exhausted."
"Keep them too busy to go out in nature and reflect on GOD'S creation.
Send them to amusement parks, sporting events, plays, concerts, and movies instead.."
"Keep them busy, busy, busy!"
"And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences."
"Crowd their lives with so many good causes they have no time to seek power from JESUS."
"Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their health and family for the good of the cause."
"It will work!"
"It will work!"
It was quite a plan!
The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians everywhere to get busier & more rushed, going here & there.
Having little time for their GOD or their families.
Having no time to tell others about the power of JESUS to change lives..
I guess the question is has the devil been successful in his schemes?
You be the judge!!!!!
Does "BUSY" mean: B-eing U-nder S-atan's Y-oke?
Please pass this on, if you aren't too BUSY!
I think I know 10 people who would admit they love JESUS.
Do You Love HIM?
IF YOU LOVE JESUS, REPOST THIS !!!!!!!
I am a submissive female , simply put . I am not submissive because you have superiority . Not because you may feel more intelligent or wiser than I . Not because of your strength before me do I feel weak and inferior .
I am not nor will ever be submissive to all men . However to the One , my One , I will be His submissive . After trust earned , I give my submissiveness . My One will embrace this gift . In my heart and soul lie my passions and desires , once He has seen them , they will be discarded and new desires put there , new passions ...His
My fears and inhibitions will be forgotten . My needs displayed before Him , with total honesty from my heart and soul ... He will have had total access to my entire being ... and with this honor comes a huge responsibility . My One will accept this treasure to be cherished . I am all the woman He shall need , for His desires become my pleasure ...my own passions ...and His pleasures become my desires .
We are not equal. He has the strength of body and mind and the instinctive need to protect, possess, defend, and provide for me , a woman of instinctively stronger will and heart. My belief in Him shall give me courage and direction.
My needs and desires encourage and give purpose to His efforts. We will never be equal. We are halves of a whole. We complement each other and make each other complete.
My desire to have a dominate is instinctive. It is not to degrade myself , have others degrade me nor is it degrading to me because I am secure in being totally feminine. I recognize and accept my worth, and my need for someone to trust and fulfill those needs.
I do not submit as acceptance of inferiority, but from strength and passion. I expect my One to stand strong and be a man. I desire and flourish in the strength and control of a man , my One . In return I present control of my body, unqualified trust and honesty, and the faithfulness of my heart. I submit because He will have earned my trust, because He has opened His heart and soul to me . Because He has listened to my words with His ears and heart He has learned to anticipate my needs and emotions. And because He has been proven worthy in my eyes, I will have given Him the only true treasure of life; I have given Him dominance over me ....
What I have given is not abnormal nor perverse , but pure, natural, and the rarest gift a woman can give her man. I will have given Him complete and unshakable assurance of my commitment . My submissiveness is a magnificent gift and sacred responsibility. He'll accept this from me with my humility and from joy. Only He will understand the rarity and purity of this gift.
He will know and recognize it is my body, mind, and soul. He will dominate me only because I've have allowed Him to, and when He see's my body kneel before Him in His mind and heart, I will be raised above all other women and all the treasures of the earth. Within the bounds of our relationship…it is His duty to protect me , and that I will know, that under His care; NO harm will come to me as a result of actions taken by Him , or I . That is His responsibility, to protect me..from myself if necessary.
What I give freely cannot in reality be bought.
