Super excited my Ben Carson 2016 bumper sticker came in the mail this week. It took a while so I was worried it wouldn't come. Slapped that baby on the minivan and already had some inquiries on where people can get them. I got mine at https://www.bencarson.com/
Now if you are curious just who Ben Carson is - I HIGHLY suggest you check out these three videos. It is worth your time! It has been SOOOOO long since I - as a Conservative - have had a candidate I can actually Stand behind and Rally for! Ben Carson is it people! He is someone I would be PROUD to have represent our Nation. Lets get behind this man and spread the word!
We the People:::
AMEN AMEN AMEN!
These videos make me want to stand up and cheer! Ben Carson 2016!!
I pray that faith will find root and grow in my children's hearts That by faith they may gain what has been promised to them.
Luke 17:5-6 (NASB)
5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”6 And the Lord said, “If you [a]had faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and be planted in the sea’; and it would obey you.
Hebrews 11 (NASB)
11 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.2 For by it the men of old gained approval.
3 By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.4 By faith Abel offered to God a better sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained the testimony that he was righteous, God testifying about his gifts, and through faith, though he is dead, he still speaks.5 By faith Enoch was taken up so that he would not see death; and he was not found because God took him up; for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God.6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.7 By faith Noah, being warned by God about things not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his household, by which he condemned the world, and became an heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
8 By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going.9 By faith he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, fellow heirs of the same promise;10 for he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.11 By faith even Sarah herself received ability to conceive, even beyond the proper time of life, since she considered Him faithful who had promised.12 Therefore there was born even of one man, and him as good as dead at that, as many descendants as the stars of heaven in number, and innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore.
13 All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance, and having confessed that they were strangers and exiles on the earth.14 For those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a country of their own.15 And indeed if they had been thinking of that country from which they went out, they would have had opportunity to return.16 But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them.
17 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was offering up his only begotten son;18 it was he to whom it was said, “In Isaac yourdescendants shall be called.”19 He considered that God is able to raise people even from the dead, from which he also received him back as a type.20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau, even regarding things to come.21 By faith Jacob, as he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and worshiped, leaning on the top of his staff.22 By faith Joseph, when he was dying, made mention of the exodus of the sons of Israel, and gave orders concerning his bones.
23 By faith Moses,
when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents, because
they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the king’s edict.24 By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter,25 choosing rather to endure ill-treatment with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin,26 considering the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt; for he was looking to the reward.27 By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured, as seeing Him who is unseen.28 By faith he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood, so that he who destroyed the firstborn would not touch them.29 By faith they passed through the Red Sea as though they were passing through dry land; and the Egyptians, when they attempted it, were drowned.
30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days.31 By faith Rahab the harlot did not perish along with those who were disobedient, after she had welcomed the spies in peace.
32 And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets,33 who by faith conquered kingdoms, performed acts of righteousness, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions,34 quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight.35 Women received back their dead by resurrection; and others were tortured, not accepting their release, so that they might obtain a better resurrection;36 and others experienced mockings and scourgings, yes, also chains and imprisonment.37 They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were tempted, they were put to death with the sword; they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated38 (men of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts and mountains and caves and holes in the ground.
39 And all these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised,40 because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect.
Father - teach my children the secret of being content in any and every situation, through Him who gives them strength.
Philippians 4:12-13 (NASB)
know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in
prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of
being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.13I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
This one is hitting home recently as I have felt the burden of being overwhelmed completely with returning to school full time, doing work study at the college and all the kidlets going back to school. I feel like I have to be all - do all - and forget nothing. As the dishes and laundry and kids homework weighs heavy on me, running to bus stops, youth groups and more. Trying to fit in visits to my family that are very very important and need to be in our lives - my own schooling suffers and ... can you sense the meltdown brewing? Well my kids did.
So as I cleared the cupboards and rearranged so each child has ONE bowl, plate, cup, mug etc... I instructed them that if they don't clean their OWN stuff - they won't have anything to eat one and I just do not care! hahahahahahaha mama lost it. But we shall see if it works. I need the kids to be more proactive in our home. I usually have it running like a well oiled machine but I am out of sorts lately with overload of responsibility and just feeling like I can't do it. So while they will do anything I "ask:... I am praying for ambition. For hope that they step up with out being asked. Hey - it's worth a shot right?
On to my prayer for today...
Lord - Grant that my children may learn responsibility.
