Rubies for JESUS

To the right of this page there’s a button that reads: “Elaine — Worth Reading” and oh how true it is.  I’ve been reading Elaine this morning and I’m not through reading. I’m up to Part 5 of 8.  It’s a series she did in 2009 describing the Proverbs 31 woman. I discovered her work on this subject this morning and it so God ordained! I’ll spare you the details, for now anyway, but just believe me when I say THIS IS A GOD THING for me. He is reading my email this morning!!!

I am setting forth here plainly and strongly that all 8 parts of Elaine’s series is copy-written. It is totally her work and I am laying NO CLAIM whatsoever to it, just honored to share it with you. My plan is to study it earnestly and glean from it every ounce of strength and correction Father will give me in it.If you would like to do the same here are links to all eight parts. May each of us who takes this journey be transformed into Rubies for JESUS.

Free From Sin

by Sandra Drescher from her book Just Between God & Me

After a heavy rain, my brother and I went for a walk. When we came to a bank that was covered with mud, my brother slid down it. It looked like fun and I couldn’t resist. When I slid down, however, I fell, twisted my arm, and pulled a muscle. Seeing only the pleasure, I hadn’t anticipated the pain that followed.

Sinful ways sometimes look attractive too. They don’t look harmful at first, but if I yield, unexpected results may take place. Christ knows the deceitful ways of sin and wants to set me free from sin’s trap. By following Him, I no longer fall captive to the bonds of sin.

You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness (Rom. 6:18 NIV).

Thank You, Lord, for freeing me from sin and its cunning ways of deception. Guide me in the way of righteousness. Amen.

I read, “Christ knows the deceitful ways of sin and wants to set me free from sin’s trap.” and it lighted on me with such warmth and comfort and peace, I wanted to share it with you.  It was a sweet moment, I hope you will find it the same.

Praying for These

Father, I ask in JESUS Name that Your Sweet and Holy Presence  be real to every precious soul who comes to this page.  I am finding it impossible to gather words sufficient to convey the sweetness of knowing YOU set us free from the wages, the grip, the utter bondage of sin and Your heart is totally pure in it; totally only for our good and well being do You so desire that we be free. I love You, LORD.  Thank You. Thank You. HOLY SPIRIT, I ask You to take this precious, precious moment and create it afresh and new in the souls of every reader. Amen and amen.

Holy hugs and a blessed weekend to you all, kt
