2 Peter 2:8

     "For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren or unfruitful in the knowledge of Christ."

faith (to) virtue (to) knowledge (to) self control-perseverance (to) godliness (to) brotherly kindness (to) love....(to) v. 8

Dear God,

     Dad thinks some of the stuff I've felt You've wanted me to do was cultish-like getting rid of my pictures by burning them and by selling my camera. I do want to stay in Your will. But it seems I need balance.  god please help me to be led down the path You want me to go.  Give Dad the wisdom he needs to guide me, in Jesus' name! Help Dad to be led in the way he guides me so that i follow you totally.  I trust You to give Dad wisdom in helping me.

     What I've been feeling... has been awful!  I know I need to be more free with my stuff... giving is part of being Christ-like.

     Help me to learn to hear the Holy Spirit. I feel i don't want to because it's been so awful what I've felt He wanted me to do.  I acknowledge You in this-I trust You to guide me.

     Make me ready... lead me through the right people... help it to be balanced and truly from You!

     Good night Jesus... I want to know You more...

                                                                                            In Jesus' name

                                                                                                 Marie P.

     The devotional was about "wrestling Before God" today. We're suppose to wrestle in prayer and with things before God. Hmm...

1 Peter 1:7

     "that the genuineness of your faith being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ..."
v. 14  "as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts... v. 15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct...v. 16  Be holy for I am holy."
v. 22  "Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit..."
