Chosen Vessel ~ Caleb

Image
Welcome to the first Chosen Vessels post! This will be on a person from the Bible, Caleb.
But, before I start into Caleb I want to say that there is one very special person who was chosen...Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. He chose to come to earth in human form to die for our sins. Because He loves us so much! He came to seek and to save that which was lost. (Luke 19:10 KJV) And he died for us!!!
Note: alot of this came from Dad's sermon a few weeks ago. 


Be Christians all the time. Not only in church.  ~  Joshua 14:6-14 KJV
In verses 8, 9, and 14, we learn that Caleb wholly followed The Lord, his God. 
Verse 8: ...but I wholly followed The Lord my God.  Verse 9: ...because thou hast wholly followed The Lord my God.  Verse 14: ...because that he wholly followed The Lord God of Israel. 
Everyone probably knows some of the story of Caleb, right? 12 spies were sent into the land--Joshua, Caleb, and 10 others. The 10 returned and told bad things to try and discourage the people be…

To All the Great Dads...

Happy Father's Day!  Today make sure and tell dad what he means to you. Don't forget Grandpa, after all they're dads too! :)
To my Daddy... I love you. Thank you for being who you are! :)
I was going to write a poem for Father's Day, but that didn't work out very well. :P Here's two I found that I especially liked.

And in memory of all the fathers and grandfathers who've gone on before,  a poem by the talented Eve Estelle. Thanks for allowing me to borrow this, Eve. It's truly beautiful. :)
A Different Father's Day By: Eve Estelle
Last year, this day was just like any other; You wanted no gifts, no special treatment, Simply love and relaxation. A day of calm, we'd enjoy it with you - We would make you cards, Hug you and thank you; Small things to show our adoration.
But this year is different - Tears fall with our smiles. We can no longer see you, And we can no longer hug you. We can't hear you laugh, We can't see you smile - I…

Meet My Dogs

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a lovely day. According to the calendar it's been nearly a week since I last posted. How did that happen? We went camping this past week at a wonderful place. We had a blast! And this week was also VBS, so that was great. 
This is going to be a random post in which I will introduce our two dogs.....*da-da-da-da!*                                 Biskit and Bullet say hi!

Biskit is my dog. Yes, I know I spelled Biskit wrong, but that's how I spell his name. He's white with green eyes and weighs over 100 pounds. He loves giving kisses! Also he will eat anything in sight. (Not kidding!) 
Bullet is my brother's. He's much darker in color and smaller than Biskit. He has brown eyes and weighs about 85 pounds. He will give kisses but he isn't as 'affectionate' as Biskit. He will play tennis ball and swim in the creek or our neighbor's pond all day if you'll let him. If he finds a tennis ball he will stare at it and bark…

Everyone is a Chosen Vessel // Song

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a lovely and blessed day! 
  I want to start by saying everyone is a chosen vessel. God chose each and every one of us for a special purpose. Whether we choose to accept what God has for us and follow His Perfect Will is up to us. Acts 9:15 says, "Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake."   He must suffer for my name's sake... It isn't always easy to follow God, is it? Sometimes it's hard...sometimes it's painful...sometimes it causes you to ask 'why'. But it's always for the better. God can see the end, we can't. He knows what the future holds and he's got your entire life already worked out. Isn't that amazing?!

 I'll end by saying, We are all Chosen. We are all perfectly made. How could we not be? After all, we are made in the image of Go…

Welcome!

Hello! My name is Faith. Welcome to Chosen Vessels! I hope you'll like what you see here and are inspired by my posts. 

Why Chosen Vessels?   The name of this blog comes from Acts 9:15-
 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel. 
What will I post? Once a week there will be a post on a 'chosen vessel', someone God used in a special way, for a special purpose. Either from history, the Bible, or even someone living at present. I plan to do these on Friday or Saturday, but that may fluctuate depending on the week!:)  Also there will be other things. What I've been doing lately, special posts for holidays, a few random posts, etc. 
If you have any questions or suggestions for posts that I should do, leave a comment and I'll get back to you as soon as I can! 
May Christ have the glory through it all! 
Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed day!
