Daily Prompt: Elegantly-Petty

via Daily Prompt: Elegant

 

Everyone isn’t  born with elegance, everyone isn’t taught elegance.  Timeless and pure are the thoughts that enter my mind, while hearing the word elegant.   Elegance is not  something you  put on  and take off. It is not like a light switch where you turn it off and on. To be elegance is to embrace the luxury of life, to it’s fullest. Enjoying the finer things in life. Living an elegant life is enjoying the beauty of life experiences gracefully. Not being hood, ghetto, or trailer- park trash is a start.  Let’s be honest, most people feel as if elegance is in  the clothes you wear. Truth is it is how you carrier your self.  Can you be elegantly petty? Sure you can, without acting as if you have a 3rd- grade education.  Just because your mate cheated, doesn’t give you the right to cheat, that’s petty. It doesn’t give you the right to search through phones or destroy property. It gives you the power to know your worth, and  leave the relationship.  The elegant way to handle the situation is by going onto be successful, grand, and awesome without that person. You can make the choice to be clever  and classy. You don’t have to be fragile to elegant,  but classic and uncompressed.

A woman  can walk in elegance, she can be sophisticated, fashionable, and artistic.  In a relationship, you are not responsible for making your woman fell this way. You are to show her that she is the vision of elegance. You can show her through the way you treat her. Prove to her she is not ordinary, but special. You can reveal to her as a reminder that she is elegant by being creative in the romance department. As you show her that you are mindful of her elegance she will carry herself with more grace and poise.

Respecting  your relationship enough  not to cheat, is a form of elegance. Being elegant will yield respect.  Understanding that your relationship with your spouse is exquisite and cultivated will demand respect even when you all are not on the same page.  That demanded respect will cause you to have appropriate actions, when you are placed in inappropriate positions.  Remember  you can make your relationship elegant. So I ask a question, what are you showing your mate?

Elder T Hansford

Prayer

Heavenly Father, I bow and worship and praise before you. I recognize that you are worthy to receive all the glory and honor and praise. Father forgive us this day our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Adonai (Our Lord and Master) I thank you for the mind to be content your words says in Philippians 4: 11-13 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, wheather well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Godliness with contentment is great gain. Father, your word says in Job 1:21 naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised. For the fear of the Lord leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble. I said to the Lord, “You Are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.” Master the cheerful heart has a continuous feast. In the name of Jesus Amen.

Lesson notes

Freedom in Christ

This letter begins with a greeting which notably lacks Paul’s usual thanksgiving for the letter recipients. His no beating around the Bush, Paul was upset and concerned, he wanted to get directly to the problem at hand. This letter was written to the churches of the Roman Providence Galatians. Believed to be addressed to 4 churches. Jesus to this errant flock as the One in whom the message of grace is grounded “For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the relevation of Jesus law. Legalism is no longer a master to whom we are accountable. It is this same Jesus who has set the believe free from sin. He has created an environment where we breathe the oxygen of liberty and have the power to do what we ought. Bring me to my first point.

1. Proper Position

We have to be in proper position to hear the Spirit of the Lord.  BE in the proper position of worship, proper position in prayer, proper position in praise, proper position in study time, proper position to witness, proper position in fasting.

HEBREW 2:1 I will stand my watch And set myself on the rampart, And watch to see what He will say to me, And what I will answer when I am corrected.( NKJV)

2. Freedom

Freedom of speech is to speak freely without restriction. Freedom of speck is protected by the First amendment to the United States Constitution, as well as many States and federal laws. The freedom to speech is our society because without it we are nothing and with it we have everything.

Freedom-

To Acton freedom In order to have freedom in Christ we must be free of all hurt, pain, and  any forgiveness toward Christ, ourselves and others. In order to have freedom in Christ we much be free in our spirit to worship and praise the Lord. In order to have freedom in Christ we must have freedom in our mind. We’re the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.

Gal 5:13 For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. (NKJV)

3. Don’t go back

In the bible there are a few places, God tells various people not to return on the same path by which they arrived at their destination. For example, when God sent a prophet to warn Jeroboam about the idols he was making the people worship the Lord told the prophet not to take the same path home. After being warned, the King asked the prophet to stay and eat but the prophet could not. Then freedom to stay free from external or foreign rule to be free in Christ. And to never go back, don’t get entangled in bondage anymore always have freedom in Christ. Don’t go back to the things that will hinder us in Christ. Don’t go back to what causes heartache, don’t go back to what causes disappointment in our lives

1 Kings 13-9:10 For so it was commanded me by the word of the Lord , saying, ‘You shall not eat bread, nor drink water, nor return by the same way you came.’ ” So he went another way and did not return by the way he came to Bethel.

(NKJV)

As I come to close. For us to have freedom in Christ, we must be in the proper position to hear the Spirit of the Lord. A to give thanks for all He has done in our lives. As we stand watch And set ourselves on the a rampart. we must not go back to hurt, disappointment, unforgiveness and also unstable relationships. In order to have  freedom in Christ, we have to be in the proper position, to stay free of all foolishness, to keep us from going back to anything else that will cause us to be unstable in Christ. So stay in the proper position, keep your freedom and don’t go back the way you started.

Prayer

Morning prayer

Father, thank you that you are teaching us how to train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. So discipline your son, and he will give you peace; he will bring delight to your soul. The rod of correction imparts wisdom, but a child left to himself disgraces his mother. Father all your sons will be taught by the LORD,  and great will be your children’s peace. These commandment that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Thank you that our children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children. A good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous. The LORD said, “I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just.” We give you the praise the glory and the honor in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

Elder Shanya Evans

Keep God’s decrees and commands, which I am giving you today, so that it may go well with you and your children after you and that you may live long in the land the Lord your God gives you for all time, amen.

Thoughts

Watch your mouth, parents were strong at saying these things if you said something out of line. The Holy Spirit will tell you to watch your mouth when you share the intimate things about us and how we should share the others. It’s important in this day and age that you be careful what you share with us and and how you share it. Speak wisely, study the book of proverbs. Everyone isn’t in a place to give advice. Some people will never know your struggles, desires, and dreams. Truth is those that know half of those don’t understand. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead you in your conversation. It’s short today, but I encourage each of you to pray each and everyday. Prayer increases your faith, it builds up your faith tank. So as life happens you have something to lean on.

Prayer

O our Father that dwellest in the high and glorious place. We come to your throne of grace saying thank you for keeping us Father. Father we are seeking Your Wisdom to overcome our bondage to our finances. Philippians 4:13 remind us that we can do all things through Christ. Father we trust in you that you give us richly all things as it states in 1 Timothy 6:17. We seek to gain our wealth through our labor, through our labor the wealth will increase as it states in Proverbs 13:11. Father we are asking that through wisdom and guidance we will be smart with our spending, that we won’t become foolish as Proverbs 21:20 states, let us be reminded we should be faithful over the income we currently have, for Luke 16:10 tells us if unfaithful in the little will be unfaithful in the much. Father we thank you that we are more wise over our finances and we are helping others who are in need. Father thank you for everything you have done and doing for us. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
