Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
I had the privilege to share "The lake where the fish are always biting ~ the lake of life" with the Fulton Alliance's women's group this afternoon. My mother and daughter joined me for the afternoon, with women traveling from Lafayette to join in the fun. It was a fun and wonderful afternoon. One of my favorite things is to exchange hugs and conversation with all of you in person. The Internet is a great way to stay connected yet I so enjoy visiting with you one on one at events like this.
This afternoon I opened with a reading from James 1, talking about being tempted. We, the fish in this lake of life are tempted "...when dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed." Ouch! Right?
In this lake of life there are many "lures" pulling us away from God but when we remember to put on the "armor of God" and "clothe ourselves" ~ we can do so much! And personally, it is possible to be al"lure"ing, even after tragedy. There is hope. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did sharing with the ladies in attendance at Fulton Alliance Church this afternoon.
I look forward to sharing with other ladies and churches in the future. God is good and I've so blessed by His Love.
Before watching the video ~ please read Ephesians 6:10-20 about the armor of God
and Colossians 3:12-17 about items we should clothe ourselves with.
This will provide some of the background you missed before the filming started ~
a Lisa M Buske twist on the Spiritual Armor and clothes we are to put on.
"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me,that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should."
"Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
