James 1:5 -8
¶ But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.
For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
Pretty mush explains its self; you want wisdom ask God for wisdom, but if you doubt God you might as well not even ask, for either your heart is to trust and fallow God (Christ Jesus) or it is not, for you cannot serve Christ and man.
Wisdom is better than financial wealth

¶ Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
To stand firm in an unpleasant or difficult process or situation without giving way
To be a part of a race or other sporting event that takes place over a long distance or otherwise demands great physical stamina.
No matter what may come our way Christ is still in control and if we will but stand in Him and His love not wondering off on our won His strength will give us the ability to endure anything, for if we are trusting Him nothing can take us from His love
Endurance can be seen in someone who has an attitude of gratitude being and showing gratefulness for all one has,
rather than complaining about what one does not have.
Being content and grateful standing firm in Christ with what ever may come or go so that you may be perfect lacking in nothing, considering it all joy.

Those of you who visit this sight may have noticed i’m not on much.
It is spring and summer is coming soon, during this time of year I start spending my days away from the things of man, i do not fit in to society or the things of this world and when the weather changes I spend my time out side, i do not own a cell phone and will not carry a laptop around with me besides that where i go there is no electricity to recharge either.
i do not believe Christ is pleased with all the time we spend glued to the internet and if you need a friend, facebooks is not the place to find one that needs to be done face to face.
Christ said go in to all the world He met get off your ass and go talk to people, we are to love one another and that cannot be done through the internet it is dead it has no emotions or feelings it cannot see the love, fear, pain or compassion, love and joy that is in some ones voice or eyes, the touch of a friend when you are in need is 10,000 times more comforting then a smiley face or lol in a text.
As a people we have become so disconnected with each other most people don’t even know how to hold a conversation face to face with a stranger.
You are more than welcome to come here and visit but you probably won’t hear much from me until late fall and winter and then i will share my advancer with you
a. move forward in a purposeful way
b. make or cause to make progress
c. put forward d. a forward movement
e. a development or improvement
So GO out and experience the life Father God has given you, experience each day and live your life and experience it with the living, not the brain dead.

Think about it:
When you woke up this morning what did you first think about / what was the first thought that came to you ?
Did it have to do with Christ and His plane for your day or did it have to do more with the world and it’s ways?
When 1,400 people were asked what was your first thought when you woke up this morning, sadly only .9 answers had anything to do with the Lord not even 1% or less than 14 people out of 1,400 acknowledge Christ when they first woke.
i think if we were to be totally honest most of us would have to say that most days this is true.
What if we all woke and asked the question; “Lord thank you for a new day, What can i do your you today? “
Instead of thinking of things of this world or yourself.
We are to be in the world but yet not part of the world’s ways,
The Question of the day:
If you are a Christian this world is not your home, so than why are you so attached to worldly things?

Have you ever taken the time to look at a flower I mean really look close at a flower, or is your life so fast you can’t take the time.
God made flowers so amazing the peddles on a Iris have always amazed on the east side of the home i grew up in we had a patch of iris that was 24 feet long and 4 foot wide filled with every color you could think of and when they would come out i would spend hours looking at them the fine hears that in the inner pedals had me the first time i noticed them the color variations in just one flower is just amazing
Then in the back yard along the fence we had a bed that was 100 foot by 4 foot that was full of Dahlia from ones that grew to be 1 inch across to ones that were over 12 inches across, my favorite were the ones that were about 1.5 inches across and a perfect ball, i would set for hours looking at them each little pedal the same as the bigger dahlias but so small.
And one day it happened I was out weeding the flower beds and it came to me that God had made each one of the varieties of these flowers but the situation and the surroundings the flowers were in made a big difference in how the flower grew and what the flowers were feed can make the difference in if the flower would grow to be healthy or not.
And as i was working it settled in me that it was and is the same with me, it is the same with all of us if we are feeding ourselves bad food we will not grow up to be what God intended us to be nor what Christ desires us to be or do, and if we are in the wrong environment listening to the wrong talk our lives cannot live up to the full potential Christ has set out for us
Don’t just take the time to smell the roses take the time to look at them
and take the time to look at your life, what are you looking at and listening to every day is it alowing you to grow to the full potential Christ has for you, or is it holding you back or perhaps even killing your spiritual groth.
