Hello and Welcome!
About the Blog
For decades prior to starting this blog I felt led to write. Sometimes I have been given a poem that just seems to flow out of my spirit onto the page. Other times I get a spark of understanding of how to “do” a small part of this life following Jesus and have wondered whether to share it or not. A couple of years ago, God started preparing me for this blog. First, He gave it a name and showed me in His Word where it came from. The name comes from Proverbs 31 verse 27, “She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness.” (NKJV, others below) When I became certain the name “An Orderly Household” was from God (after much prayer and meditation on Scripture), I thought at that early stage that it meant literally organizing our homes and what do to with all the “stuff” of life. Some time has passed, and I now believe the meaning and purpose is broader than that. I’m still not entirely certain of the breadth, depth and direction the blog will take, but the signs in the heavens and the events all around the world are pointing to the soon coming of our Bridegroom and King! So … let’s watch over our households AND at the same time watch and wait together for our Savior, setting our spiritual houses in order. Please join me on the journey … wherever Father God might choose to lead us. I pray that you will find this blog encouraging as our Lord, our Savior, our King, our Bridegroom is coming very soon for His Bride! Let us pray continually to the Father, through the Son and in and with the Holy Spirit. May we uphold each other in prayer until our blessed Hope appears in the clouds!
Hebrews 10:23-25 (NKJV) Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
My first name is Cindy, but for online safety and privacy, I do not use my last name here. The name Cindy means “bringer of light”. I added the Hebrew name Eliora, which means “my God (Elohim) is my light”, to specify that I choose to bring the light of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel) who exists in three Persons, and not the “light” of any other. I pray that with God’s guidance I will be blessed to spread His light throughout the world.
I am a born-again-from-above follower of Jesus Christ who is watching and waiting for His coming in the clouds. Heaven is my home, and I’m just passing through. I was born again at 15 years old, but anger and unforgiveness led me into a rebellious lifestyle during my later teens and early twenties. I repented and turned my life over to Jesus Christ on September 22, 1981. I’m somewhat of a spiritual slow learner and it took a long time to get where I am spiritually today. At first, there was a lot of stumbling back into old sinful patterns of behavior. Thank God for His mercy and patience! And I still miss the mark today. I will by no means be totally without sin this side of heaven no matter how hard I try, but I continually make an effort to eliminate sin from my life and God is faithful to give me His grace to keep fighting and His Holy Spirit to keep transforming me from the inside out.
