Men have died for saying the wrong thing!

#JustAThought | #iMuse | Future Tense - Crumbs #34

living in the present like the future was past tense.

11 What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.

Hebrews 11:1 (TLB)

 As the Scriptures say, “I have made you a father of many nations.” This is true
before God, the one Abraham believed—the God who gives life to the dead and
speaks of things that don’t yet exist as if they are real.

Romans 4:17 (ERV)

#JustAThought | #iMuse | Complete - Crumbs #39

It doesn’t have to be complex to be complete.

 13 His servants went up to him and said, “Sir, if the prophet had told you to do
something difficult, you would have done it. Now why can't you just wash
yourself, as he said, and be cured?”
2nd Kings 5:13 (GNB)

#JustAThought | #iMuse | Groan, Grow - Crumbs #55


we groan, to grow.

 13 We all experience times of testing, which is normal for every human being. But God will be faithful to you. He will screen and filter the severity, nature, and timing of every test or trial you face so that you can bear it. And each test is an opportunity to trust him more, for along with every trial God has provided for you a way of escape that will bring you out of it victoriously.
1 Corinthians 10:13 TPT

17  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment,
worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
2nd Corinthians 4:17 KJV

#JustAThought | #iMuse | Solder - Crumbs #26

The same heat that melts solder
is what makes it useful for holding parts together.

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as
though some strange thing happened unto you:
1st Peter 4:12

“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you
like wheat, 32 but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when
you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”
Luke 22:31-32 (ESV)

#JustAThought | #iMuse | Seeming Delays - Crumbs #44

Seeming delays are still within God’s hour of visitation.

 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness,
but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, 
but that all should reach repentance.
2nd Peter 3:9 (ESV)

#JustAThought | #iMuse | Lights - Crumbs #57

The darker the night, 
the more appreciated the smallest of lights.

1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people:
but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

Isaiah 60:1-2 KJV

14 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 
15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 
16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
Matthew 5:14-15 NLT

“Please can you help me with some water Sweetie?”

I gladly replied “Okay Dad” and was on my way to the kitchen to get the water. Knowing Dad’s love for juices, I figured I might as well get some fruit juice from the fridge onto the kitchen sink in case I would be making a trip back for it. I was about picking the tray when Mom walked in and teased me; “I think I know the person responsible for that smile on your face”. She said this with a mischievous look on her face. I giggled and gestured to remind her I was carrying glassware. She suggested I hint Dad about his breakfast on the dining table and take the fruit juice there as well. The dining table was on the way to the kitchen so I paused to feel the warmth of the food flask and overheard him replying a question I guess Dad had asked him. I found myself pausing to listen in on the conversation. One thing among others that attracted me to him was his wisdom.

It seems Dad had asked him something about marriage because I overheard him saying:

…It’s instructive to me that he called her “bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh” I understand that to mean Structure and Beauty.

A man that has no structure or strategy for his life should not bother bringing a woman on board; one cannot drive behind a parked car. This also says something about the woman; she’s also got to have her structure which should be able to fit into that of the man. There’s no submission without a mission.

Like flesh on bones, the beauty and glory of a man’s life sits well on a good structure. When the man is secure in who he is, he gives the woman space to function in her place. If the woman has worked on herself, she has an identity and will be a brand to reckon with. She won’t be looking for a “testimony” while she is still a “prayer point”...and this goes both ways. Two are better than one; the miracle of the marriage union is when both man and wife are “whole” – two halves will still make a half in this equation…

Dad laughed at his illustrations and hearing Dad's voice sort of reminded my hands to feel the weight of the water I was sent to get. I went in to place the tray near Dad and left almost immediately to my “listening spot” to hear more of what he would say.

Just about then, Mom came from the kitchen asking if I had told Dad of his breakfast. Dad must have heard Mom asking me seeing they they both stood up to come over to the dining table.

I made my way to the kitchen unknown to me that my girlish smile was more glaring and Mom teased me the more...

#JustAThought | #iMuse | Love Gives - Crumbs #22+

Love gives space, while holding on tight.
Lust takes space, with no plans to commit.

For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 TLB

25 Don’t lust for her beauty. Don’t let her coy glances seduce you.
26 For a prostitute will bring you to poverty, but sleeping with another man’s wife will cost you your life.
Proverbs 6:25-26 NLT

7 Dear friends, let us practice loving each other, for love comes from God and those who are loving and kind show that they are the children of God, and that they are getting to know him better. 8 But if a person isn’t loving and kind, it shows that he doesn’t know God—for God is love.
1 John 4:7-8 TLB

15 Stop loving this evil world and all that it offers you, for when you love these things you show that you do not really love God; 16 for all these worldly things, these evil desires—the craze for sex, the ambition to buy everything that appeals to you, and the pride that comes from wealth and importance—these are not from God. They are from this evil world itself.
1 John 2:15-16 TLB

#JustAThought | #iMuse | Mirror-Like

We all need friends that are like mirrors:
They show us the truth,
we make adjustments,
they discard the previous image.

26 Speaking honestly is a sign of true friendship.
Proverbs 24:26 TPT

24 There are “friends” who destroy each other, 
but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.
Proverbs 18:24 NLT

It's such a huge blessing when this friend, is your spouse.

25 Now although the man and his wife were both naked, neither of them was embarrassed or ashamed.
Genesis 2:25

#JustAThought | #iMuse | Need Seed - Crumbs #86

When you need it, “Seed” it.

12 The widow answered, … All I have is a handful of flour and a little olive oil…
13 Elijah said, “Everything will be fine…Go home and fix something for you and your son. But first, please make a small piece of bread and bring it to me… 
15 The widow went home and did exactly what Elijah had told her. She and Elijah and her family had enough food for a long time.
1st Kings 17:12-15 (CEV)
