The Father’s Good Pleasure!

The Father’s Good Pleasure!

The Father’s Good Pleasure!

Little Lamb Luke

Luke 12:32  (KJV) Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

As I write this, I was thinking about the past few weeks and how the Lord has just blessed my family beyond anything that we really asked him to.   I also thought about people who are still waiting for their promise to come.   Sometimes when it seems the Lord is passing out to everyone but to them, something just sort of rises up in them and mumbles, “Wait a minute, why am I not getting blessed? They are asking the Lord, “When is my season going to come?”  I know about those questions because I’ve been there, and I have asked them myself.  The one thing I’ve really learned, however, is that it is all available to me and has always been available.  I don’t want to get upset because others are getting theirs and totally miss mine because I’m off pouting somewhere. My Pastor calls a pouting mentality an orphan spirit.  If I am a child of God then all that He has is mine!   I’ve learned to rejoice with others, because I know that the same blessings are available to me!

When the prodigal son left the Father’s house to go and “live it up and waste what his Daddy gave him” He had to come to a place of realization.  He had to realize that regardless of what he did or didn’t do the Father’s love was enough and that he could go home to the blessing. His older brother, however, was upset that the Father would just welcome the prodigal son back home and throw him a party, kill the fatted calf, put a ring on his finger, give him His best robe…Why? The older brother didn’t realize that all of it had been available to him all along.  The eldest brother could have lived in a perpetual party, but he let envy and bitterness rob him from receiving the blessing of the Father. How sad it will be that many Christians will get to heaven and only then find out what was made available to them while they lived upon the earth, but they never received it because of envy and jealously.  

When Jesus bled and died, He said “It is finished!” So everything is available to us, but not all things are entrusted to us right away.  Like the prodigal son had to go through some character building lessons, so do we.  My son would love to have a mustang car, he is only 13.  Do you think I will give him a mustang car now?  NO WAY….Why?  Because he is a child and he is not mature enough to handle a mustang…Many Christians are still childish and they are not mature enough to handle all that they want from the Lord.   As the above scripture states, Luke 12:32 (KJV) Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.  The Father is not withholding from you, but maybe he is protecting you long enough for you to build up a strong character, that whatever you want from him will not destroy you, but will benefit you!

Suzy Homemakers At it Again! My Recipes for Homemade Fabric Softner!

15 Apr

Homemade with Vinegar 002

DISCLAIMER< THIS IS WHAT WORKS FOR ME AND MY HOUSEHOLD< I AM MAKING NO PROMISES< AM NOT PAID TO SELL PRODUCTS OR ANYTHING ELSE, THIS IS MEANT ONLY TO GIVE OPTION AND IS MERELY A RECCOMMENDATION BASED ON WHAT I LIKE! 

Yay, So very Simple and Absolutely Wonderful!

  1. Recipe for Homemade Fabric Softner Using Essential Oils sorta of all Natural which I like!

Pour White Distilled Vinegar in an empty 2 liter bottle

Add  as much Pure Essential Oils as you wish of any scent that you wish.

I actually added about 5 drops of pure Essential Lavendar Oil which scented it more than enough

for our family.

I then shook it up to evenly mix it.

Pour 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup into each load on the rinse cycle…

Your clothes will come out feeling so soft and will be static free!

The Natural recipe  works wonderfully by itself, however there is another option!

  depending on how organic or natural  you want to go!

Homemade with Vinegar 001 Conditioner

2. Recipe for Fabric Softner using White Vinegar and Hair Conditioner

The first time I even made Homemade Fabric Softener using White Vinegar this was the recipe I used!

6 cups white vinegar

1 bottle of hair conditioner, whatever fragrance you love

4 cups of water

Mix all the ingredients together, again I use a recycled 2 liter bottle and shake before each use.

I use approximately 1/2 cup in rinse cycle  and clothes smell great and are soft. The conditioner

will settle to the bottom or float to the top, so the fabric softener has to be shaken with each use.
