Being Humble- James 4:10

This is the post excerpt.

Advertisements

I know it’s after lunch time, but I’ve been really busy this morning. I had to help take care of my little sister, read my bible, eat breakfast, read to my little sister, take shower, and get dressed. Wait, why didn’t I read my bible first? And why did I only read one chapter? I know because I’m too busy! It seems like I have to do everything! I get tired of doing everything all of the time. I just remembered that I forgot to pray this morning! Nooooooo! Please excuse me for a brief moment…………….okay I’m done praying. What’s gotten into me lately? I didn’t read my bible yesterday at all. I mean I had a bible lesson at church, but that doesn’t count. I mean actually sitting down, using my free time to read my bible. Now that I think about it, I haven’t been reading my bible at all in the morning! Ugh! Deep breath…deep breath. Now I’m better.

I feel like little pieces of my life are flaking off, because I don’t have time to read my bible. Sometimes I even find it hard to sit down and think of a blog that I could post. I work really hard to get this blog in tact to make sure you know all about Jesus and what he did for us! But as the month is slowly fading, I realize that I need to start reading my bible more. I feel like I have to. I mean I’m in Leviticus, the third book of the bible. That’s pretty good for a girl who’s 12th birthday is less than two months away.

I just got done looking at some verses, actually, one verse from my favorite bible website. It was the verse of the day. It really made me think about the situation that I’m in and what I need to do, and what you can do when you feel like I do right now.

Bible Gateway.com (King James Version)

James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up

Bible Gateway.com (New English Translation) & Holman Christian Standard Bible Illustrated Study Bible for Kids

James 4:10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you

In this case humble is close to the definition of respectful. Or showing little estimate of one’s own importance, you care about others more than you care about yourself. Which is what the bible says to do. What this verse means is That if you are humble(Put others importance before yours, and he will think highly of you.

One of my favorite things it putting these blogs together for you, so you can be a christian! I guess maybe I should stop worrying about myself and help others, like my little sister. Even I bible reader needs some reminding.

I’ll be blogging with you next time on, Christianforkids!

Memorize it! #1 Mathew 4:4

It is important to me as you being children to memorize as many verses as possible in your young life, so if you ever get in a situation where you need to pray to God, you may have a verse to reflect on. I will have a long passage, but I will ask that you memorize a verse that I will tell you to. I will try to get one of these out every other day, or twice a week. Today I am having you read Mathew 4. I ask you to memorize Mathew 4:4 Jesus answered “It is written that man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. I have it underlined.  I hope you enjoy!
Matthew 4New International Version (NIV)

Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness

 

4Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted[a] by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’[b]

Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:

“‘He will command his angels concerning you,
    and they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’[c]

Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’[d]

Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’[e]

11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

Jesus Begins to Preach

12 When Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, he withdrew to Galilee. 13 Leaving Nazareth, he went and lived in Capernaum, which was by the lake in the area of Zebulun and Naphtali— 14 to fulfill what was said through the prophet Isaiah:

15 “Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali,
    the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan,
    Galilee of the Gentiles—
16 the people living in darkness
    have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death
    a light has dawned.”[f]

17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”

Jesus Calls His First Disciples

18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 20 At once they left their nets and followed him.

21 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

Jesus Heals the Sick

23 Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. 24 News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and he healed them. 25 Large crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis,[g] Jerusalem, Judea and the region across the Jordan followed him.

Thank you for joining me today. Remember to encourage others about Gods’ word. Us Christians need to try and make God have a place in everyone’s heart! Let me know if you memorized today’s verse! I love you all so much! Remember this little phrase- A verse a day keeps Satin away. He won’t stay away, but it does help you to know that God can concur all!

Make It You,

Be Yourself,

Make It Me!

 

NEWS FLASH!!!

Breaking news!! Today I changed my WordPress name to Makeitme360. This will be my new website and name in the blogging world. I changed it, because  I have posts that aren’t bible related, and I want my blog to open up to even more people, because when they read the “christian” part, they may not want to read my blog, so by doing this, other people(non-christians) may want to read my blog, and that could lead them to reading my christian blogs. I hope you all understand!

Make it me, make it you!

My Summer- Overview

I had a great Summer. I did lots of fun things. We went to the High School for breakfast and Lunch. They always have good food. We took walks occasionally, and went swimming a few times. I went swimming with two of my friends, and we had lots of fun. I watched a lot of YouTube, and went outside. Some nights it was really nice outside. I had a cook-out with my Youth Group at church, and I went on a mission trip. It took a long time to get there.

We always got free breakfast at the hotel, and the church provided lunch and dinner for us. On Monday, I had really bad allergies, and I could barely do anything. I did fall asleep at one of the tables in the building, and that helped my eyes from not being so red. The rest of the days  was fine. I got some souvenirs, but now I’m wishing I would’ve got a key-chain for my collection. I didn’t start collecting until after the trip.

I got to share my testimony with some other people there, and I was really nervous. We also had to pass out fliers to people in the area, I had to talk some, so again, nervous. It got better after we’d been there. i was sad to leave, but I had lots of fun.

I also got to have dinner with my youth paster and his wife. We played a fun game called “Quelf.” I also joined a homeschool volleyball team. It’s really fun. We practiced nine hours a week, but now it’s narrowed down, since we have games. We have four teams based off of grade, and skill JB(junior high b), JA(junior high A), Junior Varsity, and Varsity(High school). I’m on JB. I’m really good, for it being my first time playing. We lost our first game, but Varsity won. Yea!

Lots of other things happened this Summer, but nothing interesting. I hope you enjoyed!

And as always, I’ll be blogging with you next time on Christianforkids!                                   A verse a day keeps Satin away.  

Sorry…..

I just wanted to apologize for not explaining why I haven’t been blogging in a while. I don’t think I blogged all Summer. But because school has started for me, I will once again be blogging! I hope this hasn’t made you un-follow me. I’ll be posting maybe 1 or 2 more blogs today, after all I’m not quitting.  Please stay on my blogs, and will get some new ones soon! Enjoy….

We Have the Questions, but Who Has the Answers?

I have wondered about something for a while now. I just had to share it with you. We are actually souls. The souls are the ones talking, causing the body to move, all of that stuff. We were made to serve a purpose on Earth, so God sent us here to live inside a body/shell until we may die. I think about this stuff often. We all need to realize one important thing. God has sent us here because there is something he needs us to do. He has built our personalities and shaped us how he wants us to be. We do get to decided how we act, but God also controls us and tells our soul what we need to do.

This blog has been short and simple, but I do wonder about these things. Please tell me your thoughts in the comments and tell others about my blog, please. I love you all so much!

And as always, I’ll be blogging with you next time on Christianforkids!                                   A verse a day keeps Satin away

I Wonder…I Wish…I Want…

Have You Ever Wondered…

Endangered

My Endangered book got here in the mail two days ago! I am so excited! I can’t wait to read it this Summer and share my thoughts about it with you guys. It’s going to be so much fun! I participate in the Derby library reading program every year, and I’m looking forward to it. It takes longer to read some books then you would think. I was reading a book in the Thirty-nine Clues book series, and it took me about nine hours to read it, and it’s not because I’m a slow reader, it’s because they’re longer than you would think.

Image result for thirty nine clues series These are just some of the books in the series. In fact, this is a complete mini series, the original, The 39 Clues books. Some others include

  • The Clue Hunt(original)
  • Unstoppable
  • Cahills vs Vespers
  • Double-cross
  • Cahill Files

There are also some special books, which you can look up online. I love this series because it’s full of mysteries and secrets with so many twists. I own books 1-5, and 8, from the miniature series The Clue Hunt. I am missing some, because I got them from a consignment sale this past fall, and those were the ones that came with it. So as you can see, to complete this mini series, I need books 6-7, and 9-10. It kind of stinks missing some of the middle, and the end. You miss out on a lot, and I am hoping to get some soon.

But anyways, this is supposed to be about Endangered, not The 39 Clues. I talked about Endangered in another blog, There is a lot Going on Here, so there’s not a whole lot to talk about, but there’s still a little bit left that I haven’t discussed. The author, Eliot Schrefer, also wrote another book called Threatened. I am hoping I can get my hands on it after I’m done reading Endangered. He has wrote several other books, some of of which include, Rescued, Geek Fantasy Novel, and helped write some of the books in the series Spirit Animals.

I hope you enjoyed this blog, that got a little off topic, but I had tons of fun making it.

And as always, I’ll be blogging with you next time on, Christianforkids!

Ezekiel 2:1-7

Psalms 52:9

I Wonder…I Wish…I Want…

I wonder, why? I wish I had more to give. I want something different in my life. I realize, what I want is hard to find. What I wish may be impossible. What I wonder might not happen. But that’s okay. I know what I want, wish, wonder, need, and hope. I just still feel like I need to do something more in my life for you. This might be how it has to be, but I hope that I will eventually be able to make a bigger difference in your life.

But that costs money and I don’t have the extra to use for blogs. I may not blog all of the time or enough. I will make a list of good things and bad things.

Good

  • More organized and set up
  • Be able to find things, such as blogs, easier
  • Make a better difference
  • More people could read my blog

But then there’s all of this….

Bad

  • May not blog often
  • I could run out of content
  • It costs money
  • It would be hard work
  • It takes more time, it could take longer to organize everything

So… is it really all worth it….?

No or Yes….

I vote… no.

I want to give you a better organized website and a better chance to learn about God. I realized, it doesn’t matter how I tell people. It doesn’t matter how fast, easy, hard, or scheduled my blogs are. I just need to share the word of Jesus Christ! I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now, but I have realized that with my 12(twelve) bloggers I do have, is enough for now, and I’m hoping they’ll tell others about my blog and Jesus. It’s not too much to ask for, is it? Well I hope this blog helped you realized that it doesn’t matter how little or big of a change you make, it matters IF you make a change. That’s all God wants to see, but you still need to give it your all.

And as always, I’ll be blogging with you next time on, Christianforkids                                     A verse a day keeps Satin away
