Share Your World week 50

I love challenges and this week I’m taking part in Cee’s Share your world challenge. She posts some interesting questions and then you respond 🙂 This way others get to know you better.

Do you have a signature dish? If not is their one in your family? I don’t have a signature dish. If I have to say I would say it is any kind of stew. My mom makes the best macaroni and cheese.

Do you have a favorite board game? I looove board games. I would say Monopoly is my all time favorite.

Is there a household chore that you enjoy? I like washing dishes. But not drying them! Since my elbow injury I have a dishwasher now.

 What is one thing you will never care about? I’m not sure. I like to do research and know things. Mmm I’ll come back to this one when I’ve thought of something.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am grateful for Christmas and the fact that our Savior came to earth. I am looking forward to 2015. Can’t wait to see what it brings.

Day 3: Grace: a manifestation of favor, especially by a superior

According to the dictionary grace is (among other things)
grace manifistation
A manifestation of FAVOR by a SUPERIOR.
What is favor? Dictionary.com says that favor is:
something done or granted out of goodwill, rather than from justice or for remuneration; a kind act:
 Who is our superior? Your boss can be seen as your superior, people in leadership can be seen as your superior, but today I’m choosing to focus on God as our Superior.
In other words we can say that:
Grace is a gift that you get without doing something for it from God.
what does the Bible say

But He gives more grace. Therefore He says:

“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.” James 4:7

So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.

Eph 1:6 NLT

From these two verses we can KNOW that God gives favor. His grace to those that belong to His Son Jesus Christ.

This favor is eternal life and forgiveness of our sins.

To belong to Jesus Christ is the most important aspect of my life. What a comfort to know that God is with me always and that through His Son I have eternal life. To read my testimony you can go here.

John 316

If you read here and you do not know Jesus as your Savior yet all you need to do is say a prayer and talk to Jesus and ask him to be a part of your life. If you do not want to do it alone go to a Christian friend or church they will surely help you. Otherwise you can contact me.

 

I feel amazed and thankful that I can go into the new year with the knowledge that Jesus Christ is with me especially since the events surrounding Christmas are still fresh in my memory. How does it make you feel to know that God gives His grace  through His Son?

Day 1: 2015: A year of Grace

grace I’ve decided to join One word for 2015. The word I’ve chosen is grace because it is something that I’ve thought about a lot since October. In October I did a series 31 Days of blessings and that made me realize the amount of grace that I’ve received from God as well as the amount of Grace that I need. Please follow me on this journey in 2015. For a list of posts in this series please click here.

Day 8: Quotes

 The best thing about One Word is that there are no rules.    The word should promote growth and courage.  It shouldn’t be too narrow, should be able to be interpreted in a variety of ways.  Click on the picture below for more info:

Amazing Grace-Jesus was born: Don’t leave Him at the stable.

So Christmas has come and gone but I have a burning question. The whole world is focused on Jesus (whether fully or in part) There is a Nativity scene usually between the Christmas trees etc in stores. What I’m trying to say is that all of us is confronted with Jesus at this time of year. The question is What are we doing with this knowledge? If you see yourself as a Christian you carry Jesus with you every day. Please don’t leave Him at the stable?

This post by Anita touched me deeply please stop by and read it.
