Ever growing faith

Out of all the resources in the world, the single most essential resource that no human can live without is faith. Without faith, the unknown is never discovered, the supernatural is never uncovered and childlike love is never exposed. Love is not fulfilled to the brim without faith.

Love in and of itself has been twisted and maimed and receives bad titles by mainstream society. The only way to fully understand God's love for us is through the scriptures. We cannot have full fellowship with others unless we come to terms and understanding God's love and forgiveness for us. Repentance cleanses us and renews us and sets us back on the path towards God.

Over the years I have had my share of ups and downs as a Christian. Sometimes Liberalism has crept in and almost wiped me out spiritually. But I have come to terms with understanding the detrimental lifestyle of letting the mind come before the love of Christ that is shared so abundantly throughout all of scripture.

The following resources have helped me better understand the bible and have helped me come to terms with how real and powerful the word of God really is in our lives.

Blue Letter Bible
Through the Bible
BBN Radio
E-Sword

Getting started with these resources will really give you a boost in your walk with Christ.

Introduction

Welcome to the Raggedy Cottage and Garden. As an effort to promote home style creativity and genuine old-fashioned character, I have started this page to prompt women and men to seek and to restore the old paths of faith and look toward the future of Christ's coming kingdom. Many of the subjects discussed in the blog are to inspire us to lead more simple and abundantly creative lives within the bounds of biblical scripture. Topics such as homeschooling, gardening, scripture inspiration in relation to today's society, crafts, kitchen essentials and more will be discussed in this blog. Enjoy this blog as well as other links I have shared with you. I may even have some items for sale on the blog so be looking for bountiful blessings. Be blessed by God and his abundance in his word.
