Todays service was out of Titus 1:9-16,2:1 (Sept 9, 2012)
It was a great message! We as Christians need to encourage sound teaching and refute those who counteract it. God is in ALL things. We need to help others seek Gods way, not ours. We need to tell others how good God is, not how bad they are. God blesses me in spite of me, not because of me. If we, God's children show and share love, God's Holy Love with others and let God take care of the rest; wouldn't more people understand and accept Christ as their savior? Christianity I think has such a bad wrap, a bad name, not because of non-believers, but because of Children of God who take it upon themselves to tell others what they should and shouldn't do. We all miss-use the Bible for our own benefit at times, some more that others. I know I have before. That's where a relationship with God comes in, we'll keep learning more and more about Him. I enjoy getting to know Him. Sometimes it's really hard and humbling. Sometimes it's emotional and overwhelming. Sometimes it's just relaxing, peaceful, and refreshing. But always it's comforting, encouraging, and fulfilling. I would Love to hear about your knowing God experiences.
I found this blog I wrote a month ago. I thought I'd go ahead and publish it. Maybe it will encourage somebody.

Don't you just hate the blaaahs! September on into October of 2012 has been just that...blaaahh! I having been able to write, feeling old, and well, sorry for myself. You see I had high hopes. I had entered this short story, a true story in fact (with a couple of writers privileged upgrades) in a contest. I was so hopeful. I wanted the $3,000 prize so I could publish my novel. And the trip to New York for a writer’s conference was a wonderful incentive as well. Well, with over 9,500 writers all striving for the same thing, No, I didn't win, another blow to my blaaaahhh time. Well here it is, see for yourself why it didn't win. http://home.comcast.net/~debbiethewriter/site/?/page/Answered_Prayer/
Anyway, I need to stop wallowing in my self pity, get up and wipe off the dust. I have to remember that I will write because I love to write and I feel God blessed me with this passion and even if I touch one person with my writing,it's worth so much more than $3,000 or any writer’s conference. So there, I wrote a blog. Thank you for reading it!!! :)
