Our Secret Chamber

Written by Alma Norman

The heart is our secret chamber Known only to God. It can hold love or hate; It depends much on The choices that we make.

We can decide to be happy; Love God and his word. And berepparttar servant that God Wants us to be; And that which he deserves.

We can let bitterness and anger Breed into our hearts. Then we've allowed Satan To come in and Allowed God to depart.

A Man of His Word

Written by Joyce C. Lock

Suppose we make a promise that seems fully reasonable. Though later, circumstances arise in which we have to neglect someone in need in order to fulfill that promise.

Maybe a person came to visit and was just leaving in time to fulfillrepparttar original promise, but they slip and fall ... being injured and in need of medical attention. Do we leaverepparttar 126920 injured person unattended because we made a promise? Of course not.

But, what if we aren't doing what God called us to, because we are busy keeping our word elsewhere, and missrepparttar 126921 opportunity to meet a spiritual need. Isn't itrepparttar 126922 same thing? The only difference is whererepparttar 126923 wound is located.

Maybe we gave our word and later realized God wasn't calling us to it. Do we ignore what God is calling us to in order to meetrepparttar 126924 previous obligation? Does He come first or second?

In such cases, we have a choice. Is our word God? Isrepparttar 126925 law our God? Is what people think our God? Or, does God's will for us come above all gods?

If we make a promise, only later to realize our error, in order for God to be first - we just might have to eat humble pie. But, therein is a lesson to be learned. The error in making such a promise wasn't God's.
