The Short of it: theunfetteredpreacher

The Short of it:

The long of it is that all I seem to do is sleep

Tests on going to see if something is wrong, or I am just incredibly lazy.

The short of it is, I read the Word, and nothing speaks to me. So I have nothing to share. Please keep me in prayer.

Thanks for visiting

Why Neglected Caroline and The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station?

When we moved to North Carolina, (USA), in 1985, I was amazed at all the buildings that were sitting empty and falling apart.  I thought I should do a coffee table book, and have a huge NC on the cover but instead of North Carolina, it would stand for Neglected Caroline.

I bought a Tab 3 last year.  Suddenly I had a camera with me and started shooting.  I also was able to start writing. (Spell check ).  So a blog was born.

Forget Not: Part 1. Moses final warnings:

The last book of the Law,  Deuteronomy is the record of Moses final 4 addresses to the Hebrew children.  Like the Lord,  Moses knew people are stubborn, rebellious,  stiffnecked and forgetful.

So he reminded them of eight different lessons learned in 40 years of wondering in the desert.   We need to remember them also.

1.  Forget Not:   Deuteronomy 4:9-10
“Take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life:”

It is an incredible experience to be chosen by God, we have seen the Grace of God, (Salvation), first hand.  We need to remember the great things He has done and is doing in our lives.  We must keep them in our hearts.  We keep our souls by the renewing of our minds. (reading the Word).

Like the first generation of those who entered the promised land,  we have not witnessed the plagues the Lord laid upon Egypt but we all have personal stories of His forgiveness, mercy, love, peace, healings.

When we focus on what God has brought us through,  do not replay how terrible it was before but how wonderful it is now, that I have a comforter, teacher, healer, Savior,  King.

The horror stories of our BC years are not so different from everyone else’s.   We were all lost, alone, abused, abandoned and needful of God and His forgiveness.

What people need to hear about is Gods Grace and Love today.

“teach them thy sons,  Specially the day that thou stoodest before the Lord thy God in Horeb, when the Lord said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.”

People hear the Words of God today by the life we lead, the Love we share in financial, physical or spiritual help. (prayer)   Teach them the reverential fear of the Lord.

People will hear the call of God, if we learn to walk with God.

Acts 22:14-15
” The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth.  For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard.”

Have you been tested and tried?

We all have dreams, ambitions,  desires.

Joseph had a dream that his father and brothers would  bow down to him.  He was already daddy’s favorite, he had received a special coat.  Jelousy abounds.

His brothers sold him into slavery,  he was wrongly accused of rape, he was forgotten in prison.

He interpreted dreams, he stood before the Pharaoh,  he was made ruler over all, second only to Pharaoh. 

His brothers bowed down to him, he saved them and his father from famine.

It is quite the story.   Psalm 105:19 says this:

“Until the time that his word came: the word of the Lord tried him.”

Joseph knew his dream was true.  It took years to be fulfilled.   That word tried his faith, trust, peace, joy, his very being, until it was fulfilled.

If you are waiting on a promise of the Lord, rest assured that the His Word is true. 

He watches over His Word to proform it.   God is not a man, that He should lie.  ” the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. “

Is your heart, a heart that is perfect toward Him? 

We must believe:

“He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. “

He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” 

We must:

” Count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; (troubles ),  Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.  But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”

Like Job and so many heroes of our faith,  we must wait on the promise, we must, know our redeemer lives.

Have faith in God. Be faithful in God.  For this time of testing,  will came to pass.  We will see the promise of the Lord.
