Being Steadfast.

I believe in being steadfast in my faith. Faithful is God who calls us, who also will do it. What will he do? He will help us to be faithful, and to see the things He will do on our behalf. When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Lord raises a standard against him. I believe we stand in the faith we have, and rebuke the devil. He does try to ruin things, and run you in the ground, but if you are in the Word, you will know the verses to say aloud that will set you free from opposing forces.

It is a discipline to get up daily, and to read the Bible. I am retired, but I stay busy. I have learned that for me, I need to be in the Word, and getting something from it daily. It is a choice. When I don’t read the Word, and pray, I may have an ordinary day, or one where the enemy makes me run to the Lord, and ask for help. We stand in our faith, and when we memorize verses that we like in the Bible, we use them when our faith is being challenged.

Be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord for you know your labor is not in vain in the Lord. This has been a key verse in my life. I always am confronted with the truth, that I must lean like the hymn says… Lean on His Everlasting Arms. He is in control of my life, because I have given it fully to Him. So I must practice leaning. Smile.

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.
