With grateful hearts, we share our thoughts on redemption through Jesus Christ and His saving blood and what it looks like in our daily walk.

We gladly welcome your comments and input.
AND since we hold our conservative values dear, we might have a thing or two to say about politics... and we can almost guarantee it won't be politically correct.

"The reality of God's presence is not dependent on any place, but only dependent upon the determination to set the Lord always before us.

When we are in an unhealthy state physically or emotionally, we always want thrills. In the physical domain this will lead to counterfeiting the Holy Ghost; in the emotional life it leads to inordinate affection and the destruction of morality; and in the spiritual domain if we insist on getting thrills, on mounting up with wings, it will end in the destruction of spirituality." Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest

I've been thinking a LOT lately about how we/I (believers) 'walk' out our spirituality.

This blog (Walk Wisely) was born out of two hearts desiring to follow after God's righteousness and holiness right in the midst of a crazy, upside-down world. In a culture where 'anything goes' and 'if it feels good, it must be right' mentality it seems especially crucial to our 'walk' with God that we keep our focus on Him and know what we believe. Determined. Steady. Consistent. One spiritual foot in front of the other.

“O Lord, God of Israel, there is no God like you in all of heaven and earth. You keep your covenant and show unfailing love to all who walk before you in wholehearted devotion." 2 Chronicles 6:14

i have been thinking a lot about what people who say they believe in God are doing these days...anything goes...it seems.
i think a lot of people will be surprised when they get to heaven and the Lord says you never even knew me.
it seems to me a ton of people are more in love with themselves these days than they are with the Lord. so they set up their own selves as their god.
it takes laying your life down to Him to serve Him and that does require sacrifice of your fleshly desires.
we are a society that wants to be entertain...we think we are entitled.
we need to think again with a renewed mind.

Good points, Marmee.
A few scriptures come to mind but this one is on my heart now...
James 1: 27
External religious worship [religion as it is expressed in outward acts] that is pure and unblemished in the sight of God the Father is this: to visit and help and care for the orphans and widows in their affliction and need, and to keep oneself unspotted and uncontaminated from the world.

How plain can it get?
