7 Days of Fulfillment ~ Day 5

Day 5 Prophecy:

Psalm 22 is an incredible foretelling of Jesus’ death. King David was granted, by God, an insight into what was to come for the One that was promised to the people of Israel. The Jewish people were hoping for the Messiah to come and save them from Roman oppression, but Jesus came to suffer so He could save us from the oppression of sin and death. It’s Friday, but Sunday’s coming! 

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
    Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning?

Psalm 22:1

Fulfilled: 

“And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, ‘Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?’ That is, ‘My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?’ ” Matt. 27:46

Day 4 Prophecy:

Just as we will experience in our own lives, Jesus was abandoned – even by those who loved Him.

‘Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd, and against the Man who is My companion,’ says the LORD of hosts. ‘Strike the Shepherd [Jesus], and the sheep shall be scattered’

Zech. 13:7

Fulfilled: 

“Then they all forsook Him and fled” Mark 14:50

images (19)Day 3 Prophecy:

Jesus was betrayed by one of the disciples, Judas. This was a man Jesus chose at the beginning of His ministry, knowing that the end would result in a sellout for 30 pieces of silver. Jesus’ heart is one that is filled with compassion. He longs to see His children repent and run into His arms. So come to the foot of the cross for forgiveness, grace, and mercy.

 Then I said to them, “If it seems good to you, give me my wages; but if not, keep them.” And they weighed out as my wages thirty pieces of silver. Then the Lord said to me, “Throw it to the potter”—the lordly price at which I was priced by them. So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the house of the Lord, to the potter.

Zech. 11:12-13

 

Fulfilled:

And throwing down the pieces of silver into the temple, he departed, and he went and hanged himself. But the chief priests, taking the pieces of silver, said, “It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since it is blood money.” So they took counsel and bought with them the potter’s field as a burial place for strangers. Mathhew 27:5-7

Happy New Year!

May your 2015 be filled with opportunities to be transformed in many marvelous ways! /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b8b/19248628/files/2014/12/img_0845.jpg

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2

Health

Aleyah D. Terry

Psalm 84:1  

How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty!!

God does not want your dwelling place (your body) unclean, so why not keep it clean?!

  • Drink 7-8 glasses of water

  • Get 8-9 hours of sleep

  • Do 1 hour of exercise or more

  • Eat right

For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. 

~1 Timothy 4:8

Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.

~3 John 1:2

To Worship & To Encourage

its-sunday-quote

Hebrews 10 reminds us that we are not to neglect meeting together as the church- the bride of Christ. It is within that body of believers that we worship God and the sacrifice of His Son- the sinless Lamb. And it is within this body of believers where we give and receive encouragement. Praising God for Sundays!

Worship Is

worshipnotyouIt’s Sunday. I’ve been reminded this past week of the truth stated above. Worship is NOT about me. Worship is not about

  • my likes or dislikes

  • my unfinished “to do” list that runs through my mind (oh so guilty of this one!)

  • my desire to stay in my comfy bed on a weekend morning

  • my concerns over a daunting task that awaits me later this week

  • the person sitting next to me or three rows back

Worship IS for the sole purpose of recognizing the One who deserves all my praise. He is the audience, I am not.

 

Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day.  Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.  For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods.  For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens.  Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy in his dwelling place.  Ascribe to the LORD, O families of nations, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength,  ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name. Bring an offering and come before him; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.  Tremble before him, all the earth! The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved.  Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!”

1 Chronicles 16:23-31

Dear Summer,

Dear Summer,

Your warm and carefree days rolled in at the end of May, and have all too soon disappeared. But I want to thank you for allowing me the precious time with my children. We may not have traveled far, enrolled in a countless camps, or spent extra time practicing math facts. However, the kids stayed in their jammies until lunch on some days, they created some (ok- a lot of!) pretty cool Lego structures, and battled one another with Star Wars figures and ships.  We played countless games of Uno and Skip Bo, took many trips to the library, and spent time with family and friends. We are not promised tomorrow, so I am grateful that we took advantage of the yesterdays! I have no regrets from the past three months- just wonderful and treasured memories!

“Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” James 4:14

Happy 4th of July!
