Ye have not Chosen me, but I have Chosen you.

I Am Chosen
I Am Forgiven
I Am Created in God’s Image ~
to me that statement means not physical attributes, but created in his Image.
And the Image that I perceive of God is not nationality, or whether he has long hair, short hair, tall/thin, blonde, brunette.
Actually, I perceive him as a non-distinct Spirit that surrounds with loving kindness…and one who loves and only wants the best for his children

Others may see him differently, but no matter how you perceive God, just know that you are Chosen and you are Loved. And the only requirement that was left with us was to

Love One Another as I have Loved you’

And what wisdom that is because LOVE covers all ills.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week-end,

Sharing with Scripture and a Snapshot

Scripture & A Snapshot

Advent ~LOVE~

We are in week two of Advent. Cannot believe how fast we have arrived to the month of December, let alone Christmas is only another week and few days away. Plus, this week the weather here in Ohio may reach 70 by the week-end? I’ll take it. Let’s me feel like I might be spending Christmas in California with my kids or somewhere South. lol However, the colder weather has promised to return next week. brrrrrrrrrrrr

This week as I share along with His Kingdom Come’s Advent, the theme is Love. God sent his son to forgive, and also to know that he wasn’t changing the commandments, but to add ‘LOVE ONE ANOTHER’. Wow, that doesn’t seem so hard now does it? But with the way things are lately, sometimes I wonder. My human nature sometimes just doesn’t feel much Love. I was taught that you never Hate, and if you even said that word when I was growing up, I probably found my mother in my face reminding me, we don’t hate. So when I’m not feeling much Love, I’m reminded by Scripture as well as my mom’s voice in my head. 🙂

I especially Love the season of Christmas or as some prefer the Holiday season because it does seem Love is more prevalent. Maybe because during this time, perhaps just perhaps, Jesus comes down just a bit further to be with us and spread the feeling of Love so that it generates from within us just a bit more than usual. After all, it is his Birthday so he might just want to feel a bit closer to his presents (us), and have us feel a bit closer to the giver of the present (God). I don’t know why, but I’ll just take the smiles as they come, the excuse me when shoved in a shopping line, or the warm Hello that people share at this time of year before we head back into the reality of January and a New Year approaching.

My page day 11, 10, 9 and 8 of LOVE Advent week:

Day 11 When Love Was Born

Day 10 Come Let Us Adore Him

Song of Solomon

Song of Solomon

On the journey with Christ and reading his word, we just finished Song of Solomon. It was an interesting read.

Song of Solomon is a song of wooing of Solomon and marriage to a shepherdess girl named Shulamite. The joys and heartaches of wedded love.

Hosea 2:19-20 depicts it as the Church as the bride of Christ.

Hosea 19
And I will betroth thee unto me forever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment and in lovingkindness, and in mercies.

Hosea 20
I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD.

In the song, they shower each other with love and makes them feel loved and the only special one. He sings that she is most beautiful to him. She sings he is most beautiful to her.

Song of Solomon is a great reminder of how marriage and wedded love can be.

Excerpt from the Bible KJV:

The Song of Solomon is a love song written by Solomon and abounding in metaphors and oriental imagery. Historically, it depicts the wooing and wedding to a shepherdess by King Solomon, and the joys and heartaches of wedded love.

Allegorically, it pictures Israel as God’s betrothed bride (Hos. 2:19-20) and the church as the bride of Christ. As human life finds its highest fulfillment in the love of man and woman, so spiritual life finds its highest fulfillment in the love of God for His people and Christ for His church.

The book is arranged like scenes in a drama with three main speakers: the bride Shulamite), the King (Solomon), and a chorus (daughters of Jerusalem).

Proverbs and The Contentious

 Contentious note

We are almost through Proverbs in my Reading Through the Bible group. Leviticus and Proverbs have been interesting to me. Reminders of how just being mindful of certain things in life can enrich and make for a happier life whether you’re Christian or not. Simple Goodness or Evil. Which is the preferred to follow? I see evil as having no fruitful outcome except for the evil doers so give me Goodness and Righteousness any day of the week. But as the Bible teaches to each his own for their outcome. Am I a contentious woman? I hope not, however, I do have my days that I’m out of sorts, but I think contention used in Proverbs means more surly attitudes or maybe downright mean? What is your take on contention? I may have it all wrong so would love to hear any thoughts on the subject.

As I’m reading through the Bible, I’m also following a wonderful gal who is sharing her thoughts on Proverbs via Doodling. Check out some of her great artwork doodles by clicking the image.
