Matthew 6:24
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.
 
Matthew 6:25-34
“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not worth much more than they?
And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?
And why are you worried about clothing?
Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.
But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith!
 
Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
 
So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own”.

Psalms 32

1 A Psalm of David, A Psalm to contemplate How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered!

2 How blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not place iniquity upon, And in whose spirit there is no deceit: dishonesty, treachery, deceitfulness, trickery, pretense, cheating, falseness, guile or fraud

 

3 when I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away through my groaning all day long.

4 For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer. Selah (Salah to stop and consider what has been said).

5 I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I did not hide from You; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD”; And You forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah. (Salah to stop and consider what has been said).

6 Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You Lord in a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters they will not reach him.

7 You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah. (Salah to stop and consider what has been said).

 

8 the Lord says I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.

9 Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding, whose trappings include the bit and bridle to hold them in check, Otherwise they will not come near to you.

10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but he who trusts in the LORD, lovingkindness shall surround him.

11 Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones; and shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.

 

 

The Lord does not put sickness upon us but we in our sin bring stress in to our lives and stress brings about sickness, by confessing our sins to the Lord and asking to be forgiven of our sins, the impact of stress will be lifted from us and health will return; Stress creates worry, stress and worry weakens the immune system and make us venerable to sickness. You can be so worried that someone will find out your sin that your mind becomes so consumed with hiding the sin that your whole personality will change, you can become so protective of yourself that you will push others away and become isolated in your sins. Instead go to the Lord and confess your sins to Him and ask to be forgiven, except the fogginess given to you and walk upright in the Lord. Sin kills, forgiveness brings life. Think about it.

the Lord knows you sin He sees you, but unless you go to Him and confess your sins to Him and ask to be forgiven He can not forgive you, confessing your sins to man will not get you forgiven, for man cannot forgive sin only God can do that.

As we look at the people in the world today we see that things are not much different than 2,000 years ago, sin is still very active and people are still trying to cover it up, lying steeling and cheating are still just as active as back then, as the years have gone by sin has been perfected and excepted even by the Church who claims to be of Christ.
 
Christ has told us to be perfect as He is perfect,
Mathew 5:48 “Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
James 1:4 and let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing
 
Mat 5:43 - 48
¶ “You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy. But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?
Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
 
Jas 1:2-27 ¶ 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.
But if any of you lacks wisdom, (in how to deal with the trials) 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.
But the brother of humble circumstances is to glory in his high position; and the rich man is to glory in his humiliation, because like flowering grass he will pass away.
For the sun rises with a scorching wind and withers the grass; and its flower falls off and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed; so too the rich man in the midst of his pursuits will fade away.
Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
 
So than it looks like to be perfect as Father God is perfect we must learn to love one another as Christ has loved us and when we become agitated, disturbed --- Angry with one another we must go to the Father and ask for wisdom in how to deal with it, but we must go in faith without doubt in our hearts trusting that He will answer and give us wisdom to make it through.
 
Go forth to day and live a life of love toward your fellow man bring love to others for they have to deal with you the same as you have to deal with them, so why not do it in love.
 
Want to be perfect? than ask Father God for the wisdom to be perfect ask for guideance in your daily walk and do not doubt when you ask.Father freely give to those who ask in faith.

If I would have only:
When you make a choice it affects every aspect of your life.
i hear people say if i would have only….
Taken the other road, picked the other …. ,
chosen the other…..,
marred the other,
turned the other way,
used other words
 
This is why before make any choice we first should be listen to the Holy Spirit He has been sent to us to teach us and to guide us through this life, the reason we have regrets is we are listening to the wrong voice.
 
World teaches if you can’t see it, it is not real, listening to a voice that has no physical stauncher you must be insane, the world has given us so many things we can fill our eyes and ears with tangible thing to entice us away from the Holy Spirit and as sheep we follow.
 
When you wake in the morning your first thoughts and words should be Holy Spirit lead me through this day, help me to be a faithful follower of Christ Jesus, and than not be in such a rush to make choices, for every choice you make affects every aspect of your life.
 
Be wise and listen to the one given you to guide you to that small gate that enters into eternity with Christ and His Father,
rather than to rush in to the pit with an eternal life of regret.
 
Chose this day who you will serve
Don’t end up with If I would have only

Forgiveness:
With Christ if you do not humble yourself and with a humbled broken heart ask for Him to forgive you, you cannot be forgiven, it is a free gift but if you don’t ask you don’t receive it.
 
This is how forgiveness works in all relationships, i can forgive you but that does you no good it only releases me.
 
Until you can come with a humbled broken heart and ask to be forgiven you cannot receive it, so you cannot be freed from un-forgiveness and all its companions; discontent, worry, arrogances, pride, strife, hearted, anxiety, pain , separation, bitterness, want, fear,,,,,



Hodgepenny

As time went on He just sat, knoqing, knowing what no one else seemed to know.

But staring in to the red leave's He knew spring was on it's way, and that His life would go on as He reflected on the Love He had felt.

And that no mater how the lonely streets desended upon Him He would continue to shin, as He sat their He could be heard sining softly to Himself,   This little light of mine.

Hodgepenny's philosphy has always been take care of home first, only give to those who are truly in need, never, No never take anything that you have not earned. always spend as much time with the Father as you can, for His love will guide and keep you through all things, and this will make your life better than great.
