1 Timothy 5

1 Timothy 5:3-25
Honor widows who are really widows. But if any widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn to show piety at home and to repay their parents; for this is good and acceptable before God. Now she who is really a widow, and left alone, trusts in God and continues in supplications and prayers night and day. But she who lives in pleasure is dead while she lives. And these things command, that they may be blameless. But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. Do not let a widow under sixty years old be taken into the number, and not unless she has been the wife of one man, 10 well reported for good works: if she has brought up children, if she has lodged strangers, if she has washed the saints’ feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed every good work. 11 But refuse the younger widows; for when they have begun to grow wanton against Christ, they desire to marry, 12 having condemnation because they have cast off their first faith. 13 And besides they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house, and not only idle but also gossips and busybodies, saying things which they ought not. 14 Therefore I desire that the younger widows marry, bear children, manage the house, give no opportunity to the adversary to speak reproachfully. 15 For some have already turned aside after Satan. 16 If any believing man or woman has widows, let them relieve them, and do not let the church be burdened, that it may relieve those who are really widows. 17 Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine. 18 For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer is worthy of his wages.” 19 Do not receive an accusation against an elder except from two or three witnesses. 20 Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear. 21 I charge you before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect angels that you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing with partiality. 22 Do not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor share in other people’s sins; keep yourself pure. 23 No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for your stomach’s sake and your frequent infirmities. 24 Some men’s sins are clearly evident, preceding them to judgment, but those of some men follow later. 25 Likewise, the good works of some are clearly evident, and those that are otherwise cannot be hidden. (NKJV)

This talks about how we need to take care of the widows and the elderly. 🙂

#nootherplacetobe #synergy #MyRhema The first edit was not good so here you go. Sorry about that. #disneyfriendshipcollab David was greatly distressed, for the men spoke of stoning him because the souls of them all were bitterly grieved, each man for his sons and daughters. But David encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
- 1 Samuel 30:6 AMPC

This verse as meet a lot to me in the past year!!!! I love the last part where it says that "David encouraged and strengthened himself on the Lord his God!!!!!!!!" For many reasons this has stayed with me.

1) David knew that he needed the Lord. No matter what came his way he looked to God!!!! He went to Him and praise Him!!! He worshiped Him!!!! He got alone with Him!!!!!! David had the right idea!!!!! No matter what we are going through we need to look to God!!!!! He has all the answers. I mean come on, if Hr could send Him One and only Son to die for us. Do you not think He has all the answers we need? Yes He does. The question now is, are we going to look to Him or others for the answer? 
2) So David also strengthened himself in the Lord!!!! Again with the waiting and spending time with God!!!!! We need to do that as well. 
3) This one has hit me hard over the past few months. Did you see that David encouraged himself in the Lord? It didn't say that his friends encouraged him. It didn't say that his family encouraged him. It didn't say, and the list could go on. But he encouraged himself in the Lord.

Sometimes when we are in a fight it can be hard. Believe me I know. But you have to remember that not all the time is there going to be someone there to help you. You have to know how to encourage yourself. Yes it may be hard and hurts at times but we have to do it. How do you encourage yourself you may ask? Here are a few ways: · Worship the Lord in music · Read the Word of God to yourself
· Pray ( not about the problem but about the victory you already have)
· Tell yourself what the Word of God says

Those are a few ways.

So if you are in that fight right now, just start worshiping God! If your not there still worship Him. Get yourself in the mood to start that at anytime!!!! #Devo #scripture #bible #bibleverse #bibleverses #cool #yesLord Happy Independence Day Everyone!!!!!!! I pray you all have a blessed day!!!!! We need to remember the ones that are serving to keep the USA free!!! Also we need to remember that we have freedom through Jesus as well!!!!! We are free!!!!!! So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free.
- John 8:36 AMPC

#July4th #Independanceday #HappyIndependanceday #Happy4thofjuly Suicide:

What makes a person think of suicide?? Loneliness, heartbreak, heartache, rejection, abuse(physical, mental, emotional, verbal, psychologically), bulling, not worth it, ext!

Did you know that there is on average a 121 suicides a day? About 13.26 per 100,000 people.

That is sad!!!!! How many of them are Christians? How many of them are school kids? How many of them are ones that are "not wanted"? How many???? The list could go on!!!!!! Stop and think about it. The person you are sitting next to could be thinking about it. At work, school, walking down the street or even church. Yes church! Do you know that Christian have the same thoughts as well? 
Is if fun to think these thoughts? NO!!!! Is it your fault? NO!!!!!!!! Is there hope? YES!!!!!! Is there something wrong with you? NO!!!!!!!!! Can't you get free and out of it? YES!!!!!!! There is hope for you. You can be set free!!!!! That is what Jesus did for you!!!!! But do you know what? People don't talk about this. People don't look for help cause they think that it shameful. The shouldn't think this way or try to do it. People look down on people that think this way. It is hard.

But what would happen if we as the body of Christ would listen up. What would happen if we payed attention? What would happen if you got so close to God that He would let us know that someone was thinking about it? What would happen?

There is hope for them just like there is hope for us. I want to be able to help them. I want to see them smile again. I want to see them laugh again. But you know what? Do you know who wants that more then anything? God!!!!!!! He wants that. It makes Him sad to see people kill themselves. 
So as a believer: I want to make a stand and help them. There is hope, help, peace, comfort, but more important! Love for them. Let us show them love and let them see Jesus in us. 
That is my prayer!!!!!! #thinking #journaling #lifepost #Jesus #God #love #peace #joy #comfort #reallife #realtalk When life gets hard, pray harder!
When life gets crazy, read the Word more.

Life is not the best but not the worst. It all depends on your point of view. 
We need to be reading the Word and praying everyday. But sometimes we have things that come up and it can be hard. But that is when we trust Him and let Him lead us. 
Don't get upset, frustrated, angery, bitter, ext. Just give it to God and obey.

Okay so I'm learning this right now. My life is not perfect but I'm learning. The more I read the Word the more I realize how much I don't know. But it is best to listen and obey. I have disobeyed but we learn from it. What satan wants for a deaator God can turn for glory. It may hurt but do. Just obey, it may seem hard but in the long run it will work out. 
I love all of you!!!! DM is always open. If you need prayer, talk, ext. I'm here for you!!! God bless
