Personality Tests

Just a little Sunday afternoon considered opinion to be taken or left as the reader wills. 🙂
 
Personality tests, seeking to discover who we are along with the gifts, talents, even our hidden potential, and the like seem particularly popular on social media.
Admittedly, it’s fun, intriguing, enticing even, and the results from time to time even ring a bell or two. 

Albeit, for us seriously desiring to know who we are perhaps we would read The Bible.
There without fail, not only do we learn who we are but who we can become and how to get there.
 
The Bible.
The only fully accurate personality test available.
And so readily available – no app needed – just take it down from the shelf, open, read, learn, live. 

An Opinion Piece

Satan has been given a superhighway in America (and the world I would imagine) to our children: the Public School Systems, from nursery school to acquiring a Ph.D.
More from me following the article (pictures).  

I would to GOD that His adult Children would take Him seriously with the lives of their children and remove them from the clutches of this present public school system (particularly nursery school – high school).
I would rejoice to see Christian teachers leave the public school systems (taking their children) in favor of public-private-like school systems, void of government funds, input, or influence – to give our children a surviving/thriving chance to discover their potentials and excel in a safe environment.

(Now to Christian teachers who have found a way around the corrupt system wherein they work and are consistently able to pray with their students, talk to them about Jesus, share Scripture with them, and are daily speaking LIFE into their students, by all means, stay put.)

I cannot be the only person who dreams of Educational Systems all over this Land largely funded by the People of GOD who love children enough to give their time and money to provide them with facilities of learning, teaching from a Biblical World View. I am not suggesting FREE tuition but affordable tuition; a means for all children whose parents would agree and are seeking a Biblical World View Education, to come and learn.
But until such facilities are available – Homeschooling of various composites is the best option.

I am told by those who do – it can be done.
I expect to every family to whom it is sacrificially important, GOD WILL MAKE A WAY. 

Daniel 1: 17 As for these four young men, God gave them knowledge and skill in all literature and wisdom;  . . .   source 

Anyone who thinks GOD does not care about education – well, that’s not the GOD I know. 

Finally, given the present climate, we cannot expect the established public system to improve – it’s time to create something new, fresh, and brimming with LIFE.

I told you this was an opinion piece. 

Double Down

If you get to thinking I really messed up this time, read this verse.

Jeremiah 3:22 (NLT)
22 “My wayward children,” says the Lord,
    “come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts.”
“Yes, we’re coming,” the people reply,

“for you are the Lord our God.  source

And for some double down, we need this:

1 Corinthians 1:26-31  (NLT)
26 Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you. 
27 Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 
28 God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. 
29 As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.
30 God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin.  

31 Therefore, as the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.”  source

We all mess up.
We are imperfect.
He knew that when He called us to be His own.
He knew exactly what He was getting when He asked to be YOUR SAVIOR and MINE. 
That in and of itself should cause us to love HIM more and more. 

And think about this.
Think about the one who loves you more than anyone else on earth.
What happens when you mess up?

They forgive you and their love for you does not even come close, not even light years close to HIS LOVE FOR YOU.

So draw near to the ONE who loves you most.
Double down with Scripture. Double down with praying.
