Dwelling Thoughts

Everyday we have an opportunity to fill our spiritual house, our earth tent, this body we live in with beauty. I must admit over the past 53 years I have not taken the best care of this earth suit with a very practical beauty regime. On some days I strive to better my appearance but always have in mind that with an aging tent that it is more productive to tend to the lighting instead of the room. So with that in mind I want to encourage you to think on some "Dwelling Thoughts". Dwelling thoughts are tent enhancements that put you in a better frame of mind and lend gracious lighting to our physical, emotional, and spiritual habitation.

I accept His sacrifice, Jesus shed blood at Calvary as final payment for my sins and I ask that you fill me with your Holy Spirit and enable me to live my life for you. In Jesus name. Amen I have found that the easy part was giving my heart to God. From that point on I knew that the responsibility lay with me and no one else as to how fast I learned and grew in the knowledge of God and His blessings for me. He provided His Spirit to live in me, His written word, the Bible to study and do, and H
