Another Beautiful Day!

Let me continue to talk about being beautiful on the inside. Christians, you can’t be beautiful on the inside unless you repent of your sins, and turn to Christ for forgiveness. You have to see the sin, and forgive yourself also. I believe God uses people to point to the sin, and even this is a time for gentleness with the person. Your anger won’t help to change the person. It will get their attention, but look at the effect of the anger with the chiding. Can you pray for the person for 3 days before you tell them off?

When I am told bluntly, I respond. I cry, get angry, and finally admit the person was right. Her way of telling me was not humble, but the words were right on. Should I receive it? I believe I am about as stubborn as a person is made. I believe at times it takes the truth to startle me into repentance. It isn’t the easiest way to know God knows what you have been hiding. It is hard to take the chiding, but when the pieces have fallen, and you have found the Lord’s comfort, don’t become angry because someone spoke to you this way.

By His grace we maintain fellowship with God, and by His grace we have been saved. I believe we are being saved from ourselves, and from what we have done in our lives that has robbed God of His time with us.

Humility! God says to humble yourself before Him. I have no reason to point the finger to someone else. God is still working on me. Pride goes before a fall. Arrogance has no, place in the church, but humility is hidden from God at times. May He show  us our own sins, and may we respond in humility of spirit, and repentance. Then we can truly look at a person, and love them with God’s love. Our sinfulness has been forgiven. We have been broken by His Words to us. Then we can have a beautiful, day!

I love to paint,write,make up my own recipes, and sing. I write poetry, songs, and books. I began to paint, because my sister left me art supplies, and I needed to use them. She encouraged anyone to paint.Then she died of cancer. I began to paint more, because I was grieving over her death. As I painted I came out of my gloom, and grief. She was a wonderful, artist. I continue to paint. Recently I have been writing my, fourth, novel. It is about life for a couple who live in a small, town. There is one, adventure after another, in this book. I make no apology for writing Christian novels. I believe there is an audience for Christian literature that is written in this century! My prayer is that after reading it, people will want to read the Word of God, and commit to Christ. I pray over the text, and type. My son encouraged me to join Word Press.com, and he set up my first blog which we called Rubies Corner's Blog. I have other blogs which I have left open, but the largest, blog at this point is Rubies Corner's Blog. My book is being written on rubiesdonovels which is another blog. I am currently writing my fourth, book.. I hope to publish eventually. I am a retired school teacher. My husband is pastor of Christ Fellowship in Ringgold, Georgia. We have been there over thirty, years. I write about my church, and about life from a Christian, perspective as a pastor's wife. Life has become very, interesting, and busy since I resigned from my last job. I consider myself retired, but I paint frequently. My Gravatar shows one, painting that I did several years ago. The plant cost over thirty dollars. I painted on this one for a while. I have another site that has more art work. It is on deviantArt under RSC3. I have over 200 drawings there. Some were finished on the computer with the mouse. Enjoy.
