“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
[Numbers 23:19 NKJV]
Today’s post is from Debbie Berry, who recently began a weblog with the name ‘Righteous Realism’. Though we do not know Debbie personally, we have corresponded with her regarding prayer requests in recent times. This is her most recent post, which was entitled ‘Characteristics of God’ and featured her Word Cross above. Debbie writes ...
“I have put together this scripture cross for us in hopes that it will serve as a helpful tool in bringing us to a deeper understanding of who God is. May it serve as a reminder to us just how much He loves us and wants us to gain the victory in Him. He is 100% for us! Please feel free to take a screen shot, save it, print it, use it, and give it to others to use. Blessings to all of you, my readers and co-labourer in Christ.”

Debbie Berry: Born and raised in the heart of Vermont, I am known as a fun-loving, joyous, party-waiting-to happen. “If you can’t find happiness, make your own!” A sign that hangs in my residential home describes me perfectly. I am a poet, writer, and author. I mostly write fiction based on true events. A self-taught photographer, I have spent the last ten years creating stories from my pictures. With the birth of my grandchildren, I have used my God-given, child-like imagination, to capture not only fond memories of true events but also to demonstrate a life lesson for children and adults alike. Writing is my passion, as well as music, and photography.
Life is out there waiting for me to live it. To not do so is unspeakable to me. Quoting Danny Kaye, "Life is a canvas and I plan to throw as much paint on it as I can."
God comes in where my helplessness begins, that is the bedrock of entering the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are the poor in spirit.”
MEDITATE ON THESE THINGS…
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.
