OurHeartsWillCryAbba
Our hearts will cry ABBA- Note by Nicholas Bogdanoff Iai Exalthee

 

This has heped change my life more than anything in the world as a Christian and it is in Romans 8:15, The idea that I carry and describe will explain the greatness of the love of God I can experience in my Jesus Christ. Open your heart and realize that you are a little child in His eyes, and when we can cry pappa we can truly humble ourselves like a tiny 3 or 4 year old that longs to hold his or her hands up to be picked up by dad.

 

Because we need to humble ourselves like little children Matt 18:3. When we can be like a lil kid who cries out to be innocent and not focus on anything other than our fathers relationship with us, and we can focus on a life filtered through the lens of His love like that on a perfect 3 year old, that he Rejoices over us with smiling and singing, that we are His apple, His little boy, that security of favor, we get His devotion and love and all that because we are simply His kid.

 

God is our dad, and we are his focus because of the fact that we were created for His love as His, any child is appreciated when they make a coloring, not because of his or her skill but because the parent already loves their kid. and we do things and God appreciates it and loves us because He always loved us, because we belong to Him, we are in His sight, like His son Jesus, He is well pleased with us and rejoices with singing about His boy or girl.

 

Life is an adventure, and He is ever watchful over us, God bless  Hope you can see.

What Our Lord Saw from the Cross

What Our Lord Saw from the Cross

We need to hurt for people, not receive hurt from people. Don’t take offence, they hurt, Jesus said they know not what they do… Hurt for them, Love is not self seeking. It hopes all things, believes the best, and they may be like Jesus described as children who only do what they know to get an emotion from someone, but let my Love and your love be a pillar to be strength and light to those who are lost until Jesus will change them, don’t change for hurt, let love draw men out of despair, cuz you may be the only Jesus they ever see, this road is narrow and difficult Jesus said.

Lewis Carroll tells us that “to love is to make oneself vulnerable.” To really Love is to allow people to get close enough to hurt you, but continuing to believe in them, regardless of the soul, what it feels, the Spirit knows all things, and God wants to bless us with all Spiritual blessings, and He wanted to see us as we truly are perfect in Him, justified, let us see people perfect and justified, not as everyone else sees them, as a thief, adulterer, mean, cold, condemned, bum, why don’t we know what Jesus sees them as?

To love them in who they can be in the Lord, we know what can be by what God has done in our lives, what Jesus can do by the love transformation that caused us to be new creations who are glorified with Christ, we need to see the Christ centered future of people who can’t even see the good in themselves, you may be the only one who ever saw good or potential in that one, they may not even love themselves, so talk to them and speak life.

We have to call them to be greater, and to wait for them , because His greatness is in them, Jesus makes all things new, let us see it new, and not what the devil does. Real love does take a risk, but its worth it to see love work, Jesus was ok with being hurt, he didn’t want the pain, but he did want to draw men in with lovingkindness. Jeremiah 31:3. You have got to be strong until the end to win men, don’t let the world sway you ~ stay pure, God has hope in you to represent His love in the whole earth, don’t let Him down, He will Hurt, but He was willing to risk it all on the cross for you you.

your brother in Christ, IAI Exalthee ~ GOD bless

Detail - Glory of the New Born Christ in prese...I tell you, on th day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.

” Don’t keep looking at my sins, God Remove the stain of my guilt. Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me. Do not banish me from your presence, and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me again the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you. Then I will teach your ways to sinners, and they will return to you. Forgive me for shedding blood, O God who saves; then I will joyfully sing of your forgiveness. Unseal my lips, O Lord, that I may praise you. You would not be pleased with sacrifices, or I would bring them. If I brought you a burnt offering, you would not accept it. The sacrifice you want is a broken spirit. A broken and repentant heart, O God, you will not despise.

Iai Exalthee

Gods plan walking-in-Gods-willI don’t have many people believe me when I share what has God has given me, unless it pertains to them, I get smiles and then advice that comes from no faith. I see many people chasing foolish dreams day to day, and they think I’m on that same thing but I have grown people problems, everything that I do, no matter how big and world changing or small and seemingly insignificant, is connected to reality.

If you are a child you do childish things, day dream, and that’s the end of it. A lot depends on my decisions, for me, family, and other people maybe I haven’t even met yet. I liken this generation like Jesus said, to children, who stand in the market and call out to one another and say “we played the flute for you and you did not dance, we sang a dirge and you did not cry”. (one of my favorite set of verses).

I’m walking out the plan God has set before me, never chasing after stupid dreams that never go far, I follow vision by faith to see a plan by God realized.

Gods plan

 

God’s plan is a path that leads to his guidance and discipline that helps to achieve our goals in a better way. God’s plans are not to harm you or destroy you(Jeremiah 29:11), but to take you towards the destination through the path of righteousness. God’s will is good, pleasing and perfect (Romans 12:2).

Blessed is anyone who endures temptation. Such a one had stood the test and will receive the crown of life that The Lord has promised to those who love Him.

No one is tempted by God, they are tempted by their own evil desire, being lured and enticed by it; then, when that desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin, and that sin, when it is fully grown, gives birth to death.

Do not be deceived my beloved.

-The Apostle James (James 1:12-16)

 

Sin will try to take your natural desires and turn them into something weird. i have to watch myself more than i would anyone else, there is nothing good in me. Even experiencing the love of God, or the joy, i still have to worry about what I’m capable of carnally and maintain Holy Spirit everything. I pray to have wisdom. Let is understand where we are and where were at.

-Iai Exalthee

 

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.  -James 1:5

Gratefulness is my key to serving God.

Some try the fear of God, The joy is our strength, love obviously, but love comes from gratefulness and joy also. Gratefulness has done more in my life than the terror of God or even promises of future things. Remembering what God has done, in my life, others lives… My testimony.

How can you know Him unless you have known His works? Even a child is known by his deeds, whether they be right. Trying to conjure up joy or reverence just for the sake of being reverential or joyful will only go so far.

We have to KNOW Him. Remember what He has done, be grateful that He saved you, and everything else.

Keep in Step With the Spirit
Cover of "Keep in Step With the Spirit"

The Apostle Paul wrote: “Walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh*” (Gal. 5:16) * Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like. (Romans 6:19-211)

Now, that is easy enough to say, but how does one really do it? First, let me remind you, only born-again believers have the ability to walk in the spirit, so this article is for believers. If you are an unbeliever, stay tuned, this article is for you too.

In the new book by Kyle Idleman and available at Amazon, Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus,** we find some of the answers we are looking for in our walk with Christ.

To become a follower who is filled with the Spirit* we are taught a ‘spiritual breathing’ exercise. *(and I am not talking about the baptism of the Holy Spirit where you are able to talk in tongues.  All believers are filled with the Holy Spirit at our conversion (being born-again).

Here’s how it works: the moment you become aware of sin in your life you exhale. When you exhale, you breathe out and repent of your sin. Repentance becomes a natural response and clears out space in our hearts for the Spirit to fill us.  So the moment you are prideful, jealous, lustful, harsh, selfish, or impatient, you exhale and repent of  your sin.

The only way to be filled with the Spirit is to empty ourselves of ourselves. When we empty ourselves, it provides space for the Holy Spirit to fill us.  You exhale and breathe out the clutter and darkness of YOU to make room to be filled with the Spirit. And slowly (probably painfully slowly), you will find that your pride, your impatience, your selfishness, your lust, etc., are removed.

And then… when you inhale, you breathe in and pray to be filled with the Spirit and you surrender control over to Him. As you practice this spiritual breathing it teaches you to keep in step with the Spirit.  Followers live with a continual awareness of the Spirit’s presence and a constant prayer to be filled with His power.

For fans, this will seem unnatural at first, you were not taught to keep in step with the Spirit.

As you become more aware of His presence and pray daily for His power, what feels forced and unnatural now will become second nature. [note: the Spirit is a person, and that person is God]

Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus.**

Fans eventually get burned out from trying to live the Christian life out of their own efforts. If you are depending on your own strength to follow Christ you will soon find yourself drained and defeated. Jesus promised his followers that the Spirit would come on them in power.

Followers of Jesus understand that it’s a journey they were never to make alone. Instead we keep in step with the Spirit and He supernaturally gives us the strength and the power we need.

I hope this article has helped you. Now I go back to finish the book – not a fan.

My prayer for you is that your eyes will be opened as you seek the truth.

Love,

Roxie

Joey’s Baptism: A Guide to Prepare Children For Their Own Baptism

Joey’s Baptism, written by Robert Favero and published by Roxie Boyd at Amazon, now available!

Joey’s Baptism leads your child step-by-step through the important elements of baptism. Each chapter gives a straightforward and engaging explanation. They’re big concepts presented in simple terms to match your child’s level of understanding.

Activities at the end of each chapter reinforce the concepts introduced in each chapter. Joey’s Baptism is targeted for children in kindergarten through 4th grade.

The lessons are written in a style that is simple enough for a five- or six-year-old to understand, yet the concepts are challenging enough to satisfy the interest of a nine- or ten-year-old.

To better match varying abilities for children of different ages, each chapter ends with two pencil activities, one for younger children and one for older children.

About the Author

My name is Rob Favero, and I’m the creator of Joey’s Baptism. Joey’s Baptism came into existence when I needed to prepare my two older children for baptism (this was several years ago). Since other people were likely to need a resource like this, I decided, “Why not put in the extra effort to make Joey’s Baptism a booklet that lots of people could use?”

I’m a father of four and a husband of one, and I live just east of the beautiful Colorado mountains in a suburb of Denver.

In addition to raising my children, I’ve been involved off and on through the years with children’s ministry. My roles have included junior high youth program leader, Sunday school teacher, kids choir parent helper, homeschool gym day leader, and the Awana Clubs game-time at our church.

About the publisher: Hi, my name is Roxie Boyd and I am an internet marketer, creator of websites and blogs, and publisher of books, but above all, is a born-again Christian, a disciple of Jesus Christ.
