Loving your siblings!


Hey you all! So I was wondering would you all like me to do more bible study posts? I usually do them about once a week but I was wondering if you all think that I should have more in depth posts on bible studies, etc.? Please leave me a comment with your thoughts! But any how I'm a going to do a post about being kind to our siblings.



The bible says in 1 John 4:20-  If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 

 

This verse is saying- how can we really, truly love God if we are being mean, and hateful to our siblings! I know how siblings are; we constantly fight, argue, call each other names, and the list goes on and on. Believe me, I am totally guilty of this sin! Me and my brother get in arguments quite often. This year I have tried to improve my relationship with my brother by trying to be kinder and show my love more.

 

Many times our siblings may say something hurtful or mean and without us realizing it bitterness forms in our heart! We hold grudges against our siblings which make us more mean, selfish, and unloving! Many times our siblings don't even know that they have hurt us, and do not understand why we are bitter. That is why it is so very important to tell they that they have offended you instead of keeping it in.

Instead of being mean to our siblings we should be so thankful for them! Just think about how boring your life would be without them! Sometimes we might think it would be better without them, but we are so wrong! God gave us our family for a reason- for we would love and cherish them! When we hurt our siblings and family it is also hurting God! God wants us to ALWAYS be kind to those around us.

 Try this week to be as kind as you possibly can to your brothers and sisters! Give them an uplifting hug when they are down! I know that if you have younger siblings that the best thing you can do is spend time with them ( do the things they want to do) and be nice! My brother always loves it when I just go play Legos with him, and play Nerf wars with him. And most importantly tell them how much you love them!

A post of Encouragement


Encouragement

today I would just like to do a post about encouraging others! the bible says in: 2Co 1:3-4  Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

 We need to comfort and encourage others when they go through trials and hard times!

 A little word of encouragement can go a long way! Believe me there has been many times when i have felt discouraged and somebody saying a kind word of encouragement to me made me feel a lot better! We should always take the time to comfort people when they are discouraged instead of being so wrapped up in things in our life!

I also would like to encourage you all! No matter how hard life seams, God will always be there to help us! Many times God puts trial in our life to teach us to trust him more! Being a christian doesn't mean you won't go through hard times, but if we are saved God will always carry us through the hard times if we trust in him! Instead of thinking about the bad things happening think about all the good things God has done for you in your life! 

  Lately I have felt discouraged lately about various things in my life, but I realized that instead of being sad and discouraged I started leaving things up to God. I've started reading my bible more and praying more! Once I left my problems up to God instead of trying to solve them my self, he gave me peace and comfort!

This week try to comfort others, and if you are the one who is discouraged take time to pray and read your bible because I know this always helps!

Instead of trying to solve our own problems, give them to God!

Book Review

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't posted for awhile:( I've been sick for the last couple of days and didn't get a chance to post till now! Anyway I thought I would do a book review! I've never done one, and I've been wanting to so I thought I would give it a try!

Book description:  With King Harold away at war Lord Raburn has his eye on the throne. Those who dare to stand in his way fall beneath his power. All but one. A girl named Annabeth. Can a common, ordinary girl, with love for king, country, and her father, achieve the impossible? Trained by her father, a master swordsman, outlawed Annabeth has only her sword, her wits, and her disguises to keep Belterra from falling entirely into Lord Raburn's clutches. Can she rescue her captured father and Prince Alfred? Will one girl keep the kingdom from falling?

 

 

Main Characters:

AnnaBeth- As the main Character of the story, AnnaBeth is skilled with the sword, and will do anything to protect her kingdom from Lord Raburn.

Ransom- Swaring an oath to keep AnnaBeth save and to return her home, Ransom follows AnnaBeth on her journey to save the kingdom!

Prince Alfred- AnnaBeth's childhood friend, who is held captive by the evil Lord Raburn.

 

There are many other characters but these three or the main ones!

 

 

Plot:

AnnaBell will do anything to free her father and her best friend prince Alfred from captivity! But doing so will put AnnaBell's life in danger and all that she holds dear! For Lord Raburn will do anything to kill her; for she holds a secret that could put an end to his reign!

My thoughts:

This is one of the best books I have ever read! It was simply wonderful! I read this in literly one siting! The whole book was action packed and FULL of adventure ans suspense! This book was so good! The characters were GREAT, I fell in love with them at once, and the plot was so good! I have nothing bad to say about this book! It is without fault! It is a great Christian novel! I greatly encourage you to get this book- ASAP! I promise you will not regret it!

My rating:

5 out of a five star! I would give it a million stars if I could:)
