I have made some special friends who bless,teach,encourage,and entertain me! My desire is to be an encouragement to you. I hope you will tarry for a while and that you will come back to visit often.

a word from peter for......

To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours: Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.

For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.
Therefore, my sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:1-11

May 2011 be a blessed year for all of you, my blogging friends. Our Heavenly Father delights in giving us His good and perfect gifts....I pray that we will receive them with a grateful heart and use them to glorify Him!

  3. I LOVE this passage of Scripture. When I feel like I've failed is so many ways, it reminds me that God has given me everything I need to live a holy, set apart life. And if I need some specifics (which I do!!), they are listed and I am encouragred grow in these qualities and know they will keep me fruitful and steadfast in Him. What a beautiful thing to share for the new year. Many blessings to you!
