At the end of the day after I have burned God\’s ears off I like to come here and do my favorite thing………..write.
I\’m off on Sunday\’s, but its back to work on tomorrow. I\’m going to see the Incredible Hulk this weekend. I use to love watching that show when I was coming up. Bill Bixby was my boooooooooooy. LOL I wanted to go to the Midnight Showing on Thursday Night, but I\’ll have to wait.
Me and Neisha have been reading the Bible in One Year on line for over 3 months now, and it is amazing!! For some reason, I look at the Bible in a whole new light. I use to always run to read the New Testament, but baaaaby take it from me, the Old Testament is THE BOMB! Before each reading I pray because I want to get true understanding, wisdom and knowledge. I am the Cameragurl seeing the scriptures come alive from all angles. I want to feel the Spirit of the people, visualizing them, and seeing everything that I am reading. ITS ABSOLUTELY THE GREATEST FEELING IN THE WORLD!! LOL Is all I can say. I have to snap out of the picture sometimes because I feel as though I am there for real. lol http://www.oneyearbibleonline.com/june.asp?version=72 is dated and we just finished reading about David. He died in yesterdays story. I feel as tho I know him personally. I was sad to see his story come to an end, but Solomon is King now, and today this is what he asked for:
3 Solomon showed his love for the LORD by walking according to the instructions given him by his father David, except that he offered sacrifices and burned incense on the high places.
4 The king went to Gibeon to offer sacrifices, for that was the most important high place, and Solomon offered a thousand burnt offerings on that altar. 5 At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, and God said, \”Ask for whatever you want me to give you.\”
6 Solomon answered, \”You have shown great kindness to your servant, my father David, because he was faithful to you and righteous and upright in heart. You have continued this great kindness to him and have given him a son to sit on his throne this very day.
7 \”Now, LORD my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David. But I am only a little child and do not know how to carry out my duties. 8 Your servant is here among the people you have chosen, a great people, too numerous to count or number. 9 So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?\”
10 The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for this. 11 So God said to him, \”Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourself, nor have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment in administering justice, 12 I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. 13 Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for—both wealth and honor—so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings. 14 And if you walk in obedience to me and keep my decrees and commands as David your father did, I will give you a long life.\” 15 Then Solomon awoke—and he realized it had been a dream.
He returned to Jerusalem, stood before the ark of the Lord\’s covenant and sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. Then he gave a feast for all his court.
|Today\’s New International Version (TNIV)|
|1 Kings 3:3-15|
When I read that I had to step back from my desk. Solomon didnt say he wanted 12,000 more horses, gold or a thousand wives. He said Wisdom to GOVERN YOUR PEOPLE!!! LOOK AT HOW UNSELFISH THAT IS. I\’M TELLING YALL, WE GOTTA START TAKING CARE OF EACH OTHER BETTER THAN WHAT WE ARE DOING. What Solomon wanted wasn\’t anything about him. Then God said, know what? I got you………, also let me drop this in your Spirit……..13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.

Everyday I try to be sensitive to the voice of God. Sometimes we talk to much, to often say the wrong things and we don\’t leave room for him to speak to us. That\’s why I had to cut down on how many people that are in my circle. When you finish dealing with people in your circle with all their issues and yours put together, you are too tired to hear God. So daily I\’m asking God show me LaCrease.
Well, this past week on Wed I was told by my manager that we cant punch in the numbers to the Bridge Cards/Food Stamps, anymore, and that if the card didn\’t swipe , they couldn\’t use it. It angered me because 97% of those cards don\’t work. I know that, I\’m a cashier. So I said you know what, the next person who come through my line with a card that doesn\’t swipe, I was going to ask them to call management over to talk to them. Here comes this lady and her daughter, her card doesn\’t swipe and after I couldnt explain to her why that we can no longer punch in the numbers, she wanted to talk to someone higher. I told her that the first manager that I call over she can\’t help you at all,I told her to ask her for someone higher. She did and when our Co manager came over , he flat out lied to her with some story of fake cards, keep in mind Bridge cards need secret pin numbers……… it works like a debt card. She couldn\’t get her groceries. So I said to him why don\’t you put a sign on the door that says we cant accept non swiping bridge cards. * I knew he wouldnt dare do this* He said No. I said well are we to ask every customer are they using a bridgehead? * which I would neve do*. Then he says we cant do that either. I said so, just wait to ring up all their groceries, total them out and then when they hand me over their non swiping Bridge card, tell him *OH SORRY WE NO LONGER ACCEPT NON SWIPING BRIDGE CARDS AS OF TODAY*. He listened how stupid that sound and next thing I knew, he told my manager to tell us all that we can accept them.
Now the point I\’m making in all this is, we all have a mouth. We need to learn to use it in the right ways. WE need to use our v
oice in positive lights. See I have this thing, when someone is wrong and it effects a lot of people, Ill get *fleshly upset* and can move a lot of people to different reactions. GOD DOENST LIKE THAT AT ALL. I\’m learning to go to the source. I wasn\’t going to stop asking questions to the co manger until I got answers. You cant do all those families like that.
A voice of truth is a million words.
