>What this Blog is Not About

>After almost two years of blogging I can say how beautiful it has been to make new friends and keep in touch with old ones. I have also discovered that some words are noble indeed and deserve to be published, that taking pictures is fun and helps me capture beautiful moments that otherwise would be lost. I have learned that coffee goes really well with a keyboard and I have discovered the joy of writing, sharing and  reaching.

Today I just want to say what this blog is not.

It is not a place to find the Word of God. Please do not read it, never, if you read this instead of God’s Word!

It is not a place to look for words that will make you feel better. My goal is not to make you ponder about yourself, your own emotions. The world is full of that. Full of emptiness, of selfishness. Always trying to find an easy way out from the guilt that sin brings.

I am not pursuing a New Age type of Christianity or Contemplative Spirituality. I believe in meditation, but only on God’s word and the way God commands it. I believe that the waiting and the being still should flow from my relationship with God. Waiting must be always under His sovereign Providence. God’s word is the only Truth. Jesus is the only Way and salvation is by grace. I am Reformed in my Theology and that is my stand.

It is not a place to find yourself. The only safe way to look inside yourself is to examine your walking with the Lord in the light of the Scriptures.

“Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!”
2 Corinthians 13:5

My prayer is that my words will bring grace to you, but I also pray that His perfect, all-sufficient Word brings life to you, and that His Word will be all-sufficient for you!

This I pray, Daily On My Way to Heaven.

Are you memorizing the Scriptures or are planning to start soon? Then enter my giveaway.

  1. >I must be persistent, Becky! I tried leaving a comment last night, but I lost the battle with the authenticating letters. :)Yes, this is what I love about you….your passion for His truth! God bless you, my friend, as you continue to speak that truth in love and with boldness.

  2. >Becky,The beauty you reflect on, in your blog, through scriptures, studies, prayers, pictures and life are reminiscenct of His beauty and a wonderful,winsome encouragement. So glad for your blog. You have often been used to reinforce the things God has been speaking to me about. Even this morning – my husband and I had long conversation about blogging and technology and what are its purposes and uses. I had to chuckle when I read your headline in my blogroll. IT never ceases to amaze me how a loving God directs us continually back to His truth which sits us under the lavish grace of His Love.He alone is good and true.Thank you for being you. Blessings on Your home and hands,Jo

  3. >Becky,Excellent post. How I love the way your blog directs my eyes to the One Who hears from heaven! It is good, every now and then, to restate our position, as you have here. It reaffirms to ourselves and the world not only who we are and why we do what we do, but Whose we are, and our reason for being."Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ." 1 Peter 2:5Benediciones,-E

  4. >My dear Becky, can I let you know what a blessing your blog has been to me these last few months. It is so clear that your blog is not what you have just written above.I come away from reading it filled with such inspiration to walk closer with my God and Saviour, filled with thankfulness and gratitude as you cause me to open my eyes to all that He has provided which I often take for granted.In the last month I have been inspired to look at my God-given role as a wife with new eyes.And I am so thankful for your blog that I have come to know you and your heart for our Lord.Love and blessings to you from England 🙂
