Seasons of Life In Jesus Christ.
Delicious looking, is it not!! Hello, my friends. Thank you for coming back. This is the last of four posts and the conclusion of 'the watermelon patch' and 'lessons learned', in my life, BEFORE CONVERSION, DURING, REGENERATION. IT MAY HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND YOURSELF, OR, SOMEONE ELSE.
[See Posts 6A, April 3, 2018; 6B, April 5, 2018; 6C, April 10, 2018, and now, 6D-1 and 6D-2, April 12, 2018]
Remember, 'Bad company ruins good morals'. We were tentatively - ALL BAD FOR EACH OTHER!!
[1 Corinthians 15:33] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Time to learn - as it is written: 'You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. You shall not covet your neighbor's....anything that is your neighbor's'. [Exodus 20:15,16,17]. And, for me, a time to 'choose' and love God, first. And, it would be a time to learn about the same thing Adam and Eve had to learn - 'the lust of the flesh'; 'the lust of the eyes'; the pride of life'. [Genesis 3; 1 John 2:15-17]
We left off from our last posts 6C on April 10, 2018 with the fact that my beloved Uncle Emory was not going to be 'an adult' to 'tell me' what to do about my 'dilemma'. Let me see now, what did Uncle Emory tell me?
Yes, he had actually 'helped me'. Wait. He said that 'the Lord will 'strengthen' you', right? So, I started asking Jesus to 'strengthen me like Uncle Emory has said You will'. [James 1:1-8] I began to avoid 'playing' with the 'gang'. It was easy, because they did not like to play 'dolls' and come with me to what they called 'all pretend', even the 'tea parties', 'with imaginary people'. So, I just 'played with my dolls' and had 'tea parties' when they were around. Again, the Lord was getting me over the 'fear' of 'having no earthly friends', if it would be necessary in order to 'trust and obey Him'. [Joshua 24:15] This 'strategy' worked for a few days, but, 'boys will be boys'! [And, ole Satan will be ole Satan! He just does not know when to 'give it up'! [Ephesians 6:10-20]
They just would not let go of that 'desire to steal'! This was 'great temptation' for them. [Genesis 6:5; Matthew 6:13, 12:35; Luke 11:4] So, one day, when there were no 'adults' in 'hearing distance', they came at me with the 'bullying' saying, 'if you don't tell us where the melon patch is located, we are going to put your dolls and other things you like in the pond.' THAT DID IT! Remember the little girl with 'that spunk and nerve with the lunch pail' beating the boys? [See post 5A, March 19, 2018] Well, she was back!! But, this time, it was 'restrained', 'different'. this time, it was not 'carnal or fleshy', but it was the Holy Spirit in control and the words were 'words' of such 'courage', 'power' and 'strength', that it took them by surprise. [Matthew 10:19,20; Ephesians 6:17; Hebrews 4:12]. As I recall, I told them, 'if you touch my things, I am going to tell Jesus and He will protect them and me. But, you will get in a lot of trouble. Uncle Emory will take you to the 'wood-shed'. And, if you bother me again, I am going to tell Mother and Uncle Emory exactly what you plan to do. And, Clauz, shame, shame, shame, on you!!'
The 'fear' that I saw in them, was - amazing. [Luke 10:17] Even more amazing to me was what came out of my mouth! I didn't even think about what I was about to say! I will never forget it. 'And, whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive it, if you have faith.' [Matthew 21:22; Luke 11:9; John 11:22; 14:14; James 1:5,6] Jesus truly answered my prayer, and the Holy Spirit was marvelously working His power in me and out of me, at the time. There was no fear in me, but a 'surrealistic calm!'
I told Mother and Miss Ada what happened and they explained to me, that Jesus was showing me that He is the 'father of the fatherless', and 'will always be there to provide you with words' and 'direct your actions', and 'anything else needed in your life in any and all circumstances', upon the 'condition' that 'you ask and trust and obey Him'. [Psalm 37:25;68:5;Jeremiah 49:11; Zechariah 7:10; 2 Corinthians 4:9;Hebrews 13:5; James 1:1-8]
This event was a 'watershed moment' in my life, even at the age of 6 years. From that point on, I could not get enough of adults teaching me His word. At every opportunity, I was asking help reading the Bible, or, listening to it read to me. I had 'run the gauntlet', the 'trial of my faith'. I would NEVER BE THE SAME! I had learned that truly, all I would ever need, was and is - Jesus, who would always be with me, and lead me to do what was and is - RIGHT. I also learned that whatever the ole Satan means for evil, that God will use it for His 'good', always in His purpose of 'salvation'; to bring one to salvation, to be perfecting one in salvation, or, even to lead one out of this world, on to Him, glorification in death! This has been my life-long experience, and practice, through it all!! [Genesis 50:19-20]
Three weeks or so later, I heard Him call me. And, on the next set of posts, beginning April 17, 2018, I shall tell you of the wonderful day, I came to Jesus. And, He has never left me since, through it all!! For real!
As for Clauz and the 'gang', see the post 6D-2, this evening.
Remember to always 'search the Scriptures for yourself. [Acts 17:11] As you do, may the LORD bless you and keep you. The LORD make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you. The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. LORD please put your name upon all who venture into the 'rooms' of 'my house' 'in Jesus' and please bless them, even as you graaciously blessed the people of Israel of old, in the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen. Amen. [Numbers 6:22-27]
