Geraldine you got it right let the word water you with his love. Say it out loud, let the world know just how much God loves you. Always. Get that growing in you heart and it will set you free.

Cluny, and all of you others who so graciously commented on my blog: Today I read a devotional that has helped me with this problem of fretting about pleasing God. It said that God LONGS for a warm relationship with us and will be very understanding when we answer his Love-call. I am going to center on God's Love-call. I truly believe it will be my answer.

I asked the question because I constantly fret and worry that I am not getting every effort EXACTLY right, EXACTLY the ONE way God will approve. ---Geraldine on 7/9/14

Sister, you are in bondage!

You are regarding our God as a cruel and difficult taskmaster. He is neither.

I used to be in this same bondage and had difficulty measuring up to what I thought God expected of me. I found help from the Bible and other people that our God is a God of love and guides us as His children.

One thing that continues to help me know God is good is a daily reading the "love" passage in 1 Cor 13:4-8 where I substitute the name of God (I use Papa) for the word love.

As I've said, Geraldine, you need a mature Christian to help you work through your scrupulosity issues.

This can't be done on line.

I can do nothing except to tell you to relax in the assurance of God's love.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Geraldine, the bible (as you know) states WHAT we should or should not do but does not always say HOW it should be done. I believe that is so because, in most cases, it is obvious HOW things should be done and when it is not, at first, obvious our conscience usually kicks in.

We must not break one law to fulfil another e.g. we are told to "Give to the poor" but we know for certain that we are only to give that which is already OURS to give. That is being over-simplistic maybe but I hope you understand what I mean.

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" (Luke 6:31)springs to mind and that can be applied to many circumstances. When we walk closely with God we usually know how to apply His Word.

And just where did you get this notion, Geraldine?

It's nowhere in the Bible, nor have I ever heard it preached.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Pro 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Stick to the Bible and you won't go wrong.

I will take it OT view of it. Look at Matthew Ch. 1 and the lineage of Jesus. How many major sins brought about the birth of Jesus. Look at Abraham, God only spoke to him 4 times in about 40 years. My point is this if God says do something then go do it, if God is silent about something try it. Remember we live in grace not bondage. Satan the thief brings despair and bondage and steals joy but God brings about life and life to the fullest John 10:10.

Cluny, I asked the question because I constantly fret and worry that I am not getting every effort EXACTLY right, EXACTLY the ONE way God will approve. I want to be able to feel confident that my choices can vary and still please God.
---Geraldine on 7/9/14

What I see to be right ways are by faith in the word. Not in what you feel not in what you think, but the "word" Jesus, I don't believe there is just one way for faith to work. But I do believe there is only one way to God's Heaven and that is through Jesus Christ. And that takes faith you have to put it in him that he is true to his word.

What's the point of this question, Geraldine?

Do you think God is really watching you to see if you put the eggs into already boiling water, or boil the water with the eggs already in it--and then is going to zap you if you did the wrong thing?


The Bible doesn't replace ordinary common sense, but gives a direction to it.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Rom.14:2_3 "For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not, and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
Rom.14:6 "He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord, and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks, and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks."

Insisting there is a right and wrong way in food or observation may not be or for the Lord.

However, the list of Matthew 15:19 or Galatians 5:19_21 are said and declared to be wrong with no right way about them.

micha 9344, great! The verse you give is exactly my train of thought. Thank you so much.
---Geraldine on 7/9/14

Prov.14 v 12, Isa.55 v 8. Only God's ways.
---Lawrence on 7/9/14

I started looking, but than I realized I was trying to make the Bible say something instead of letting the Bible speak for itself.
The Bible has many verses concerning the "right" way and it does sound like it is many.
But there are many ways to do something "right", yet no verses come to mind concerning this principle or application.
"What" seems to be of more importance than "how."
Here is one that just come to mind that may help:
Mat 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
---micha9344 on 7/9/14

What immediately came to mind was the saying, "There's more than one way to skin a cat." However, that certainly isn't found in the Bible.

I'm not really sure where you're trying to go with this Gerry, so I'll just wait & see. Should be interesting. :)
