How I Deal with Sinus Congestion

Do you deal with vertigo? Chronic sinus issues? Congestion? Allergies?

Yeah…me too. And we all 3 have summer colds right now. Ugh.

I wanted to share what I do that actually HELPS. Along with oils, I do these 2 massages.

It keeps me from feeling like I’m headed down Alice’s rabbit hole!

I do them in order, #1 then #2.  I also take OTC cough/congestion meds EVERY day. Yep, every day. Sometimes multiple doses, some days only at bedtime.

It’s something I have to constantly monitor.

But these massages help.

Just wanted you to know, in case you need them too.

Just Obey

Today’s Christians make up one of the most despised groups on the face of the planet.

We are mocked, judged, condemned, ridiculed and maligned.

None of these things should move us.

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. ~Acts 20:24

We must push deeper into the Word, affirm God’s will for us and press on toward Him.

Nehemiah faced great persecution while he was trying to rebuild the walls of his precious hometown of Jerusalem.

God had miraculously provided what he needed to get the job done, and even brought him from captivity to do it; but he still faced the mockers every day while trying to do God’s will.

We need to purpose in our hearts, no matter what opposition comes our way, to obey the Lord. Do what He says. Follow His Word. Hold firmly to the principles He laid out for us.

No matter the mockery, obey God anyway.

Be Like Jesus

A new wallpaper for you, my friends. Sorry if this one doesn’t appeal to most of my male readers. LoL. But those blossoms were just too pretty to pass up.

In a world that tells us non-stop all the things that Christians *should* be, I can tell you, with no reserves, our only responsibility is to be like Jesus.

It is a full-time job. Stop listening to all the other voices. Get into your Bible and learn to be like Him.

 

[1] Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
[2] And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
[3] But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
[4] Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
[5] For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
[6] Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
[7] Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
[8] For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
[9] (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
[10] Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
[11] And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
[12] For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
[13] But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
[14] Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
[15] See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
[16] Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
[17] Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
[18] And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
[19] Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
[20] Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

In Him,

Perfect Timing

“…And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year…” ~Nehemiah 1:1

“… And it came to pass in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year…” ~Nehemiah 2:1

From Chisleu (December) to Nisan (April), Nehemiah wept, mourned, fasted and prayed for his beloved city of Jerusalem.

He was a captive in another country, faithfully serving as the King’s cupbearer. He had no means or freedom to meet the needs of his fellow countrymen. He could do nothing but pray.

For four long months, he quietly did his job, waiting for God to give the answer to his prayer – to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem.

He confessed. He repented. He begged. He reminded God of His promises to His people.

Nehemiah must have wanted to just give up. To forget his crazy notion of going back to Jerusalem to help. It must have been difficult to keep a poised, gracious spirit before the King every day for four months.

But finally…FINALLY… God moved. He touched the King, and granted everything, and even more, than Nehemiah needed to return to his country and do the work God had laid on his heart.

It may sometimes feel that God is asleep. That He isn’t hearing you. That your prayers are just bouncing off the ceiling. But He is listening. He is working. He is moving all the pieces into just the right position to bring your answer.

He may sleep, as He did in the boat, when the storm rose up to frighten the disciples.

He may sleep…but He never oversleeps!

He will arise. His enemies will be scattered. And He will work a might victory by His power and might.

Don’t lose heart, my friend. His answer is on the way.

Value

And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

~Mark 12:43-44

And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

~Matthew 10:42
