Opened Door, Closed Door

Revelation 3:7 tells us that the One who is Holy and True (Jesus) opens what no one can close and that what he closes no one can open. My NLT study Bible says that the open door means that salvation is assured, and the closed door means judgment is certain. There is no going back once that door is closed. So, please go through that open door of salvation while there's still time.

The door will be open only for a while longer. Once that door is closed either by your earthly death or until the Holy Spirit stops calling you, it cannot be opened again. God has promised all of us a spiritual resurrection after death on this earth. He is inviting all of us to live with him in heaven where there will be no more sorrow, no more pain, no more tears, no more disappointments. To ignore His invitation means your soul will live on in the fiery pits of hell with continuous sorrow, pain, tears, disappointments, and regrets. 

The devil is lying when he tells you that you have plenty of time (nobody knows when they'll die so don't risk it) or that there is no God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, heaven, or life after death. Stop listening to Satan's lies. To listen to him means constant and everlasting misery. 

Jesus Christ died a horrible death on a cross to save our souls from the eternal burning pit that was created for the devil and his demons. But his followers - those who listen to his destructive lies - will burn with him. 

Won't you come today? Just as you are. God will come to you. He's never far away no matter what the devil tells you. God wants you no matter the circumstances you're in. ALL are welcome. Nothing you have done can separate you from God except for NOT accepting his invitation from the Holy Spirit to believe in the Son, Jesus Christ and to live the life He created for you. Jesus will take on your burdens. God will provide joy. The Holy Spirit will guide you.

Just get down on your knees and say this prayer that I provided at the end of the Revelation of our Times post. You don't have to be at a church altar. Any place will do. When the Holy Spirit tugs at your heart, just answer with the prayer. God loves you. He gave His only Son's life as a sacrifice. Jesus loves you. He accepted that call to sacrifice His life for yours. His Spirit loves you. He lives in us once we accept Him as our Savior regardless of the mess that's there. He'll help you move out what's bad and move in what's good.

Who am I to tell you these things? I'm nobody special. But God has me on a mission to use my blogging and other writing interests to bring people to him. His sheep are being led to the slaughter house by the devil's lies, and He has asked me to help his sheep find their way to Him so that they may live. Listen to Casting Crowns sing the song Nobody. He can use you too. 

God bless you,

Patricia

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u

Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d

Idahoan Instant Mashed Potatoes

One of my favorite side dishes to make with a meal is mashed potatoes. One day, a couple of months ago when life was very busy, I just happened to notice these Idahoan  brand instant mashed potatoes with 4 servings in a grocery aisle I was going through. They had a variety of flavors, so I bought several pouches. I wondered if the dried potato flakes could be as tasty as the flavors indicated. And yes, they are to my surprise. I am very impressed. On days when I'm running behind, it's 5:00, dinner should already be served, and I'm not going to be able to start dinner for a while yet, AND mashed potatoes are planned for that meal, this will do quite nicely. Fewer dishes are involved, and it's quick. They are pretty thick, but they don't feel heavy while you're eating them. Very creamy actually.  All you need to do is: Boil 2 cups of water. Pour the boiled water into a heat-proof bowl. Pour in the dried potato flakes.  Stir with a fork until you get a thick, mashe
