Hmmm… Reveal the Skeleton

The theme song to The A-Team is humming through my brain with the words, “I love it when God’s plan comes together.” After reading The Watchman’s blog post today, exchanging Emails with Anne at Freedomborn yesterday, and recurring thoughts about my life story, I have no doubts about the rightness of my Yada Yada prayer group challenge for this year, to deal with the skeleton in the closet. That closely kept secret is a source of shame and embarrassment and has the unnerving way of rattling against the walls now and then or jangling the doorknob in an attempt to reveal its existence.  In the process of keeping the door tightly latched while looking over our shoulder, physical and mental exhaustion and fear become ever-present in our lives. Isn’t it time to reveal the skeleton? Isn’t it time to be free of its bone-chilling grip? (John 7:4, Ephesians 5:12-13)

  1. Well my friend if you were to hear about all the Skeletons that I have to reveal and the dreadful evil they were, which even now I feel sadness when I remember how I hurt God and others and yes myself, you would be grieved but then why not you have big shoulders so because I have 3 hours to spare I’m going to tell you all about them so here goes……

    THE FLESH……… now what did God tell me to do about it…….

    Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

    Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

    Romans 6:21-23 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    2 Corinthians 7 1Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

    Romans 8: 5- 17 Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation—but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. or if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

    Colossians 3:1-17 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.

    Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord

    1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

    Thanks for Listening my friendly chook, chick ??? don’t scratch around in the past unless it can bring glory to God and this can of course be so …but there is not much time left… you have confessed your sin from the heart, have you not, if so God has removed your past sin as far as the East is to the West and He does not keep a record of those wrongs but chooses to wipe the slate clean and remember no more.You my friend are part of His Royal Family, you are an eagle and will soar high don’t bring your flight down to chicken flapping.

    Christian Love Anne.

    • Wonderful truth of scripture, Anne. Thanking God for the assurance of salvation.

      You have given me such giggles over the chick flapping I might have to make a button for My God Cicks just for the fun of it. Hmmm… okay God, I’m ready for the creative ideas. 🙂

      Keep the Faith, My God Chick! Karin
