Thank you for your prayers. Mom passed on Thursday. I hadn't seen her since Thanksgiving due to covid so it has been rough. Especially since she lived with me. Just writing about it makes me want to cry.

Please continue to pray for our family. Thank you.

Today is the best day to begin making changes for yourself and others both inside and out!

Sorry to hear about your mom and I know I have not been here like I used to be and sometimes find it hard to keep up. I know what it is like to take a group over from someone else and see no one have any interest in it. I had that happen before with one of Ruth Ann's groups and someone else's. It is just plain discouraging. I am trying to get back on track with my own prayer time. Seems we have time for everything except the most important stuff. You did a very good job of it. You really made me think on a lot of points,

Good morning!

Got to see the new baby yesterday. So sweet!

Mom came home but fell again going up the steps. Luckily, my brother and I were there to help her. She is so weak and still having trouble breathing. I don't know what to do but make her comfortable.

Please pray for mom and me as I take care of her. Thank you!

Hi everyone;
Pray for my daughter Jennifer as she is still struggling with constipation and diarrhea. She was getting better until her new neurologist dropped her pain meds down from 450 to 150. He thought it was causing her to be dizzy. He would not listen to her complain that she was getting withdrawal symptoms from it, I am dealing with back and leg pain yet.

Hope you got it all done yesterday!

I have some belly fat to get rid of. My son-in-law says to limit my carbs so I am going to work on that.

Have a great Tuesday!

Being lazy is good for you sometimes! All work and no play makes Johnny a dull boy! :) I love that we are encouraged to rest. After all, our Lord rested.

I hope you have a great day! I've only one house to clean today and the bank will go quickly. Exercising still has to happen. I found if I just do strength, I gain belly fat, so my focus has been on cardio. On Friday I will take progress photos, so we will see.

I hope you have a great day!

Good morning!! All is good here. I got my flu shot over the weekend and still need to take my mom.

Congrats on losing the pound. Every pound counts!

Glad you got some cleaning done. I was lazy on Sunday and did puzzles and watched movies most of the day.

Praying for rain and relief from the fires! Hoping all of this will end soon for everyone.

Frances

Good morning!! I hope you are doing well. I have taken since Wednesday off from exercise and from deep cleaning the bank. I didn't do any painting on my apartment and I haven't cleaned my house.

I have continued my eating plan for the most part and am still losing. Another pound gone. It gets so much harder at the end of the month because I've ran out of money and food is low. :(

I hope you are having a lovely day! I've got to get myself ready to take my daughter to work and then try to finish deep cleaning the bank.

Please be praying for rain as we have fires less than 40 miles from the house and it's raining ash on us and messing with the air. I can't have the windows open to air it out. :(

Have a great day!

I am reading through the Bible chronologically and getting into John right now along with the other first books of the New Testament. Going to overlap soon as we go through John. I hope you are reading through it. Not hearing much from anyone.

Hope you are all well! Praying for each of you to have a great and glorious fall weekend.

How awesome is that! FIVE POUNDS! Congratulations!

And you are staying busy and tracking food. You are doing the right things. I know you can keep going!

I want to lose that much before going to the doctor so am trying to eat less and better.

Have a great Sunday!

Good morning!! I hope you have all been having a great day!!

Today was official weigh-in: Five pounds lost since Aug 8. I just need to keep exercising and tracking my food. I get out of the habit of tracking my food and I've found my late night eating just isn't helping either.

I started painting my apartment yesterday. It actually looks good. I got the kitchen finished. Oh, boy!! That was a lot of work. Today I'm going to be starting on the dining room and running around to the living room wall. I think my biggest problem is trying to find where to put all the 'stuffs'! :)

Have a great day!

emoticon I am starting to get text messages to pray for those of our parish that have been hospitalized with the virus. Most have gone on to be with Him.We just have to trust that God is working everything out and knows what he is doing. I talked to a man that his BIL died from it and he was saying how it has brought other people in the family back to God and he sees the good things that have come from it. Hope you are all doing well.

Blessings, Diana

Will continue to pray for you and pray for your daughter, Jenny. Praying for peace of mind as you rely on God to give you patience as you wait and as you trust in Him. Praying for the doctors to find exactly what you both need for healing.

Frances and Diana thanks for praying for me. I will not know anything until I see the doctor on the 7th. I am still sore from it though. But better than I was yesterday.

Pray for my daughter Jenny as she had a bad experience with her neurologist on Thursday. The way she said things was not good at all. Made her feel really bad.

We will certainly miss you Ruth Ann. I am sorry i have not been here all the time. My back
is getting worse and making it hard for me to do anything at times. Some days are worse than others. Discouraged because I love to walk and find I cannot even do that much anymore and I used to love to take prayer walks.Please pray Friday I have an MRI on my spine then on the 7th I see the physicians assistant probably to talk about seeing a specialist.

It was an awesome study as always. It starts at 6PM and ends 7:30PM. The Priest in so blessed with the Holy Spirit and always shares his real experiences with the faith too. When he prays the closing prayer you can feel the power. I'll keep posting the info. as we have them in case anyone is interested, but I understand if there is no interest or it doesn't work out for people in other ways.

emoticon I have a pretty good habits of praying for the country because I know we desperately need God's help and we are exhorted to pray for our leaders in the bible. Since the COVID-19 situation hit we (our family) prays for the world too. There are a couple of organized prayers online for Catholics to pray together for the pandemic. One is prayed at noon eastern time on Facebook and draws about 2.5K and the other is at 12:30 MST broadcast from Lourdes, France. It does not track participants like the other, but am sure it has more just because the television network has been well established for years and is worldwide. Have a blessed day all!

I would agree with your assessment and know it lines up with the word.The gift is for the edification of the Body of Christ. On the day of Pentecost everyone heard what the Spirit was saying in their own language (they were edified). Also, they were aware that something divine was happening knowing it was impossible for one language(s) to be heard in everyone's native language. My particlular gift of tongues falls in the category of a personal prayer language. You quoted it as, " but let him speak to himself and to God."

The most important thing about a church is that they are true to the word of God. I like the Catholic Church in that way. I never have to worry about a prosperity message being preached or that the scriptures will be misinterpreted.

You are correct, the Holy Spirit does give us all different gifts. I really don't understand the matter of speaking in tongues but doing the Pentacost the apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages. To me this means speaking in a language other than the one you would normally speak in. Because the people that were there at Pentacost, heard the Good News spoken in their own language. I used to attend a church that everyone at some point spoke in strange language and I didn't know what was going on. People were falling out on the floors, their bodies were jerking like they were having fits. It was kind of scary. Once I started studying Acts, I began to understand what was going on. But the Bible tells us in 1 Cor 14:27-28, "If anyone speaks in a tongue, it must be on one occasion two or at most three, and one after the other, and one must interpret. But if there is no interpreter,he must be silent in the church, but let him speak to himself and to God."

So, when people at random start speaking in tongue and no one is there to interpret what is being said (as the Bible say), I find it to be inappropriate in a church setting. That's just my opinion.




"The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible."

Heis-theanswer: Thank you for the emoticon . All believers have the Holy Spirit especially as our teacher and guide (John 14:26). There are many gifts from the Holy Spirit and we are not all given the sames ones, I believe because we are functioning as different parts of the Body of Christ. How blessed you are to have been with Jesus for so long! The longer I know Jesus the more I realize that the Holy Spirit speaks to us and does things on our behalf that we don't even recognize. He is an emoticon God!

Diana, welcome! So glad to have another believer to share with!

I am praying for all who are lost today. Praying for these senseless acts of violence and that God's people will stand up and speak out. I am praying for peace and comfort to those who are in the midst of all the storms in this life. I pray God will surround us all (believers and non-believers) with godly people who will encourage us and remind us He, alone, is in control. God help our state, our country and our world. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Today is the best day to begin making changes for yourself and others both inside and out!

emoticon Dreama: I am praying for God’s will in this; he won’t let you down. He loves our children even more than we do. I have found the best remedy for getting restored is getting alone with Jesus and truthfully explaining your feelings to him. I have never walked away from there In the same condition. He wants us to cast our cares on Him.

emoticon I’m new; just joined today! I have known Jesus for over 30 years and he is everything to me. I heard about Jesus from a television ministry (Jimmy Swaggart) and prayed the sinner’s prayer with him. I have never been the same since and am so thankful that He called me. I was baptized at the church I started going to and filled with the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues. I went to that non-denominational church for many years, and then married a Catholic. After over 20 years of going to Catholic Mass, adopting and some of the prayers, I converted to Catholicism. I never felt like I left one denomination for a better one; instead I still feel a part of one body of Christ. I was happy to find out that Catholics have their own version of “spirit filled” (believing and manifestation of spiritual gifts) which is called Charismatic. I have found a deeper understanding there of becoming more Christ like. I used to be very skeptical about Catholics because I knew practically nothing about what they believed. In fact, when I was single, I prayed about God providing a husband for me and told God anyone but a Catholic. I have always said God has a sense of humor after that. I look forward to getting to know the group better.


Blessings, Diana

The joy of the Lord is my strength!

Lil Vixen: You are right. It really is enough to make one want to stop praying. I was praying for strength yesterday because I surely needed it. I kept having scriptures come to me pertaining to not giving up. So, per instructions, I'm not giving up praying.

Thank you all so much for your prayers!

I will certainly add you and your family to my prayer list and will also ask my pray warriors to pray for your family as well. I can truly understand where you are coming from because my DH's brother and his family doesn't believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Whenever we talk with his brother we always have to hear something negative. One time he said that there are a number of gods and you just have to choose the one you want to worship. I told my DH to hang up the phone and not listen to that stuff anymore because no matter what you say to his brother, he will not listen and expect us to listen to his blasphemy. His wife is the same way, once when I used to talk to her she asked me to join her at midnight to worship the moon god because it will give me strength, and I told her instead of worshiping some fictional god, why don't she join me in worshiping the Lord Jesus Christ. She cut the conversation short and said she had to go. We constantly pray for them because they don't know. Sometimes its enough to make you want to stop praying, but we can't. We are hoping one day that they will see the light before it is too late for them.

So please don't think you are along in this

Frances:

My children are 30-27-24, and 21. I didn't surrender my heart to the Lord until 2014 so they certainly weren't raised to know the Lord. And I know that I can't 'talk them into' loving the Lord. I just try to answer their questions and try to counter any wrong they have found.

Just keep praying, please. I'm just battle weary.

Praying for you and with you for your children. How old are they?

I know it is such a burden to carry when our children are not believers but please don't carry this burden. Give it to God. Ask Him to surround them with godly people who can share His word with them. And trust Him to do so. God works in mysterious ways and even when we can't see Him working, He is. I am praying and trusting in Him to put your children in the path of those who can witness to them and share about His love, mercy and grace. I am praying their hearts be softened to hear the word of God and accept it.

I didn't see a thread for prayer requests, so I'm putting it in here.

Please be praying for my children. At this point, I don't think I'll see any of them in Heaven except my child who is mentally disabled and my heart is just breaking. Pray for me that I can continue to pray and not lose hope.

I really enjoy looking all the different wording for the same verse. It gives so much insight about the verse and passage.

Don't to add to your confusion, you may also like to try the Amplified Bible Classic Edition. I use a FaithLife Study Bible it give notations to the verses as your read them to help you understand what is being read.

You can go to Bible Gateway online and look at many versions at the same time for one verse. I use it a lot when writing devotionals.

I have a question.
Since I am actually new to Bile study (even though I do read it daily) and I also have a booklet I get in the mail called Beside the Still Waters, and is written by Mennonites I do not know which Bible is the better one to follow?
I follow the NKJV Bible and have the KJV as well as my mother's very old Catholic Bible.
When I read something that I find a bit confusing I get more so when I compare Bibles.
Help! Anyone.

Jenny gave me a book for mothers that has verses in there dealing with anger and other things. I can carry it with me when I go somewhere. Will help me memorize verses too and I got a Bible Puzzle book from the Turning Point site; it has puzzles and other things in there to help you learn more scripture. Like memorizing all the books of the Bible in order or the ten plaguies.

Thanks Frances and LIL VIXEN for the advice. I was writing verses down in my journal today. Maybe that will help me remember them better

Ruth Ann thanks for pointing that out; often I do not stop to ask God to point something out to me..

I too have been struggling to memorize Bible verses. But as Ruthann said, I have to ask God to give me the ability to remember the verses I read and be ale to quote them back to Him without hesitation.

Yes, God will help you and all of us to grow in different ways. Don't worry if you aren't doing things a certain way. That is just the devil's way of trying to get you off track.

Sometimes just a verse a day to meditate on and see what God is saying to us is all we need. Consistency pays off...

Joshua 1:7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do.” (NLT)

I was doing so good before but now I have fallen behind in ti. I read my Bible but memorization and prayer need a lot of work yet. Love all the comments in here.

Memorizing Scripture has been a struggle for me but it is completely my fault. I have been trying to do it own my own. Thank you for opening my eyes to this and revealing to me that I need God's help. I pray today He will allow His Holy Spirit to help us all be diligent about remembering His word.

I too would like to memorize scripture.

I heard a story of a man doing this once and how it healed him from his depression. He would write them on notecards at first, and carry them around in his pocket until he able to memorize them fully. Then when negative thoughts would arise, he would read them,
