Starving!

One statement, well there have been many statements in this book that have held my attention; but, this one today from the book Un-Saved Christian, The Cost of Disobedience by Rebecca Ruth, well, let me tell you:
“Without His Word, you will fall away.”.

I think she is right. I was going to say more than right but that’s a bit much, isn’t it?
How can one be more than right? 

Without His Word, you will fall away. 

Without DAILY intake of Scripture, we will fall away from following JESUS.
It will happen — so, let’s just don’t let it happen!

Perhaps on the first day, we miss reading, we will not notice a waning of fellowship but within a short time the world will wear on us and we will respond in kind.

So let us just head off the flesh, the world, and the devil, at the pass and read Scripture daily. 

One of the many things for which I pray is that I may be enabled to connect more People with more Scripture. 
Scripture is our food.
It’s our bread, milk, and meat; and without it, we will starve off the Vine.  John 15:1-8

Please check out these passages: 1 Peter 2:2; Hebrews 5:11-13; 1 Corinthians 3:1-3

And if you are participating in the Weekly Planner Reading, today is Ezekiel 11.

Hosea 14: (9) Let the wise understand these things, and let the discerning know them.
For the ways of Adonai are straight, And the righteous walk in them, but in them sinners stumble.
source

For the ways of THE LORD are straight. 

There is nothing crooked, deceptive, sneaky, evil, wrong – nothing unfaithful about THE LORD.
And it is these very STRAIGHT ways of GOD – why we walk in righteousness with Him. 

But sinners? 
Check the verse again and see what happens to them. 

Please tell me this saddens your heart; that it pains you to see sinners stumble over the very ways of GOD that give us a firm, solid, sturdy, steady, protected, secure path to walk in, as they reject HIM now and without repentance, — forever. 

I am urging us to faithfully walk with ADONAI. 

For Us

It’s late to begin tonight for a Monday post but I am. 

A verse I am keeping close.  Perhaps it will minister to you today. 

Cooking and Serving

A new to me recipe that is good enough to prepare again. 
Yes. For that, I am giving thanks today. 

Especially when the ingredients are good for you, like brussel sprouts! 
Are you interested? 

It’s a pretty dish cooking, don’t you think?
It does have a suggested ingredient that my beloved cannot abide – Feta Cheese. 
So, at serving time I only added the Feta to my serving. 

1 Pound Brussels Sprouts
2/3 Cup Fresh Cranberries
1/3 Cup Feta Cheese
1/3 Cup Pecans
1 tablespoon Maple Syrup
1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar    (I used raspberry Balsamic Vinegar)
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

If you try the recipe, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.  It’s really festive looking – for the holidays, you know.
