My Feet have Rolling Arches……………….

I don’t have arches…..mine are rolling. I have flatter than a flitter flat feet. They have no arch. I had to take shoes that were dirty, and soiled from someone who fixed them with an arch every time my parents bought me shoes. I was an ugly duckling, but this made me the worst when one looked at my feet.

I have given my ugly feet to the Lord. Now I dance to His music, and kick , jump, hop, skip, run, walk, and twirl because the joy of the Lord has taken the depression away. I used to be weeping, and crying in depression. I listened to the song I was playing on the tape, and I began singing the victory the woman of God was singing. I came up out of that closet with it clean, and straight. I came up with the joy of the Lord on me, and IT HAS NEVER GONE AWAY.

WHEN I get a chance to kneel at an altar, I take it for all it is there for. I Praise Him quietly…..He has set me free to love, serve, and adore Him. He has open the prison, and I can speak, talk, communicate….I am not bound by shyness, and feelings of inferiority any longer. He set me free! I SAID HE SET ME FREE!!

ONCE YOU ARE FREE , YOU DON’T GO BACK TO LOOK AT THE CHAINS OR TO PICK THEM UP. YOU HATE THE CHAINS THAT BOUND YOU. I DO. I TAKE MY LIFE AND GIVE IT TO HIM. “HERE, LORD. TAKE MY LIFE. I HAVE MADE A MESS OF IT. TAKE MY LIFE AND USE ME FOR YOUR GLORY!! FOREVER! I AM YOURS!

My Savior is Risen, Forever, ALIVE!!!!!

Risen Forever Alive!

Christ is alive. He is seated in Heaven making intercession , prayers, for us, Saints. The grave could not hold Him. It is Easter in my heart this morning. He is alive in me by the power of the Holy Spirit. My mouth can’t be shut. I must say, “God in me is the Hope of Glory!”

Stop crying, and wailing. God wants to take your sadness, and your sorrows. Read Isaiah 61: It is wonderful!
Isaiah 35 says They will see His majesty. I am one of those who will see Him in His glory! It says to encourage those who are tire, weary, exhausted until they are feeble. It says to be of good courage. He has overcome the world. He is your deliverer. Accept Him as your own Savior who died for you on the cross. He didn’t stay on the cross, or in the tomb. He is alive!

Some Tiredness Can Be Helped Quickly…………….

When a person is so tired all the time, they may be anemic. There are all kinds of reasons for tiredness. I have found that if I will find a place to sit down, and open the Word of God, I can be refreshed. It doesn’t take long to know that the heaviness I have been dealing with needs to leave. Often the tiredness I felt goes away.

Singing with a group of people will often cause tiredness to lift off people. The refreshing of the Lord is there, when you get into worship with both feet.

I know that if a person speaks the Word to people, he/she should go refresh after speaking. You pour out to people in a ministry, and then you should fill back up with more Word, and more praying, and thanksgiving. It works. You fill up continually on the Word, and you will find yourself giving out more to people who happen to be in your presence. They see the joy, love, faith, and the peace of God, and want to talk.

The refreshing of the Holy Spirit is quiet. You find God, and start studying, and the refreshing will happen. God is active, but we must be at His feet more after the activity, than less. Speaking may wear you out. If you are pouring out from what the Holy Spirit has taught you, then there should be the fruit of the Spirit to go with it. God’s Presence has joy, peace, love, self-control, faith, faithfulness, wisdom, knowledge, and the list can go on.

I generally find a place to sit down, with my Bible, and a pad with a pencil, or ink pen. Ed, and I buy pens that will mark our Bibles, and the ink won’t bleed through on another page. They are 5 dollar, Parker pens. I mark my Bible, because it is helpful to get involved with the text. It must get my attention. I try to pick out 5 verses lately, that mean something to me. I write them down daily. It is wonderful how the Holy Spirit teaches, convicts of sin, and looses strongholds through studying the Word.

The refreshing of the Lord is awesome. Start sharing with someone what you have seen or heard, and God is right there to lift both of you. Sharing how you became a Christian, what makes you want to sing to the Lord, sharing what you have seen and heard, are going to be used by the Holy Spirit. I do believe He wants the Body of Christ to grow more this year. How do you grow in Christ?

You pick up your Bible, and start reading. Then you apply what it says.

Yard Sale Two Is On Saturday. Our Church Will Have Four Yard Sales in a Row.

Yes, I am writing again about the yard sale. There were people coming through the door for a long time on Saturday. It seemed like a long time to me. Even when some of us were eating a sandwich, there were people coming to browse to see what we had on the tables.

Tonight, after the lesson, tables were moved and the place was set up again for the yard sale on Saturday. The room looked familiar. I helped with the first yard sale last Saturday. I worked with the leader on Friday, and we left for home at a decent time. I knew I would be coming back down to the church before 8:00 A. M. I did.

Yard sales are for greeting the neighborhood. Some visitors were from farther away. They took their time looking at things. We had over 300 items, I am sure. It was organized, and my friend, and I bagged, and took money from the customers. Things sold that had been for sale a long time. We were glad to see some of the things sell. Others were a surprise also. I hope we have as good a time greeting people we don’t know, but recognize from the last yard sale.

I am the Least likely to Speak, or Write………………

I work on writing, and communicating. I try to maintain my communication skills, but I do have a background that limited my speech for a long time. When I accepted Christ, I changed so much, because there was a prison that I left. I was bound with shyness, loneliness, sadness, and many things.

Rubies Corner’s blog started when my son, Isaac, said, “Mom why don’t you start a blog?”

He helped me set Rubies Corner up on Word Press. I had written in diaries, and at work, but never so much on the internet. This opened a new world for me. I found that God helps me write about things that are needed to write about. He gives me ideas, and when my hands touch the keys, the thoughts come fluently. I write and think at the same time.

You may see that I talk about everything that is good, decent, and respectful. I don’t like to swear, or cuss in a writing. I try to keep it happy, daily, and interesting. There are now about 449 people following Rubies Corner’s Blog. It has grown, by the grace of God, and with hard work.

I am the least likely to be writing,

Beauty from within comes from fellowship with God through Jesus Christ. It is a gift of God.

Beauty from within comes from fellowship with God through Jesus Christ. It is a gift of God.

and speaking to you, but God is good. His light is pure from heaven. I hope you will come by many times to see what is happening here. Thank you for reading, Rubies Corner’s Blog.

Why I Wear a Ruby Ring—a red stone ring.

I wear two Ruby rings on my right hand every day. I have one in the jewelry store being repaired. I wear the two rings together on my right hand. My father and mother are both gone to heaven. I receive a little inheritance after my father, and mother died. I decided that some of the money needed to go to a memory ring. I always desired to have a ruby ring on my right hand.

I went to a store, and purchased a ruby ring. I showed it to Ed, and he said, “I can get you to a place that will give you a ring for the money. It will look good, and you will like it better than this one.”

I agreed to go look for another ruby ring. We looked at rings, and there it was. It has diamonds embedded in the sides of the ring, and the ruby is big enough to see. I now wear two rubies. My mother’s name was Ruby, and I was her namesake. I was often called, “Ruby2″. So In memory of my parents, I wear the two rings.

When I miss Mom, and Dad, I rejoice they are together, in Glory. I am reminded of their instruction, love for me, and how they trained me to love the Lord with all my heart. They brought me discipline, and grace. It was a straight road to endure, but I learned to tell the truth, walk with the God, and to Love my parents, and people I know. My family prayed, and read the Word daily. It was 15 minutes of reading and praying that we did daily before we caught the bus to go to school.

I haven’t always been a shining Ruby for Christ. It is discipline to walk with the Lord and to love people. I have gone through all the people I know and have known, and I have personally forgiven those who have angered, and offended me in the past. That was worth the crying, and praying. My parents didn’t teach me to do it this way, but I have grown in the Lord for walking with Him. He tells me things. If God spoke to Samuel when he was a child, I figured He had something to tell me.

My rings had to be cleaned. I allow the Holy Spirit to show me things that need to be repented, because I want to shine like a jewel. I don’t want to be clouded by things that will cause His light to not shine through. This is called being transparent. Hurts are forgiven. Words are forgiven, and loosed from my spirit by the blood of Christ. I don’t like for anything to get in the way between fellowship with Him. I am not perfect, but so far this is current. When I run out of love for people, I tell God. He loves all of us. He doesn’t just love me. He wants to communicate with the Body of Christ. We have to sit down, stop , and let Him refresh us, talk to us, and give us a song to sing. Jesus Christ made the way possible for us to have a relationship with God. Trusting in Christ as your own personal Savior gives you access to enter the Throne room boldly.
