Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“I learned to make myself read until I learned to enjoy it, which is one of the many miracles God has given me as a tool to fight the devil with.”  ~  Jon Barnes

The Making

Making yourself responsible for your own actions is a tough job.  Many people become masters at lying to themselves and others about everything.  Making excuses and ignoring symptoms of spiritual laziness, sickness, and disobedience is the path of destruction, evil, and contempt.  You know better.

Making of A

Being honest about your wicked heart is the first step in true repentance and stability with daily prayer, reading, and walking with God.  Amazing lessons are learned in being humble, faithful, and diligent with God’s love.  Taking advantage of God’s love is not true faith or true love, like people who fornicate or commit adultery.  The making of a disciple requires real honesty. 

Disciple

True disciples do not hide the truth of love in Christ.  Simple acts of kindness, faith, love, charity, humility, long-suffering, and the likes are fruits of the Spirit that follows every Christian all day and all of the time.  It’s not a button you just turn on for show or convenience.  
Today’s Question
Does your life look like who you are in God or are you a fraud?
 
Enjoy The Reading

Job 3 

Job Speaks

After this, Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth. He said:
“May the day of my birth perish,
    and the night that said, ‘A boy is conceived!’
That day—may it turn to darkness;
    may God above not care about it;
    may no light shine on it.
May gloom and utter darkness claim it once more;
    may a cloud settle over it;
    may blackness overwhelm it.
That night—may thick darkness seize it;
    may it not be included among the days of the year
    nor be entered in any of the months.
May that night be barren;
    may no shout of joy be heard in it.
May those who curse days[a] curse that day,
    those who are ready to rouse Leviathan.
May its morning stars become dark;
    may it wait for daylight in vain
    and not see the first rays of dawn,
10 for it did not shut the doors of the womb on me
    to hide trouble from my eyes.
11 “Why did I not perish at birth,
    and die as I came from the womb?
12 Why were there knees to receive me
    and breasts that I might be nursed?
13 For now I would be lying down in peace;
    I would be asleep and at rest
14 with kings and rulers of the earth,
    who built for themselves places now lying in ruins,
15 with princes who had gold,
    who filled their houses with silver.
16 Or why was I not hidden away in the ground like a stillborn child,
    like an infant who never saw the light of day?
17 There the wicked cease from turmoil,
    and there the weary are at rest.
18 Captives also enjoy their ease;
    they no longer hear the slave driver’s shout.
19 The small and the great are there,
    and the slaves are freed from their owners.
20 “Why is light given to those in misery,
    and life to the bitter of soul,
21 to those who long for death that does not come,
    who search for it more than for hidden treasure,
22 who are filled with gladness
    and rejoice when they reach the grave?
23 Why is life given to a man
    whose way is hidden,
    whom God has hedged in?
24 For sighing has become my daily food;
    my groans pour out like water.
25 What I feared has come upon me;
    what I dreaded has happened to me.
26 I have no peace, no quietness;
    I have no rest, but only turmoil.”
 
Love,
Jonathan
