God is greater. I don’t care who you are, God is greater. Does not matter how much money or status or power you have, all that is temporary, God is forever. The eternal God deserves the praise. He reveals His glory in what He made and what He made is infinitely better than what we re-assemble. God is greater and worthy of our constant attention, prayer, devotion , worship, respect. May God’s name be praised in all the world! And He is love to boot! The more you talk to, learn about, worship and praise Him, the better your life is and becomes. When He is the focus, the balance is soul is correct and focus is right and everything else falls into its proper perspective. Read His Bible/Word, contemplate Him, talk to Him, praise Him, sing songs to Him and about Him and you will always be glad you did. God is greatest.❤❤❤
As I turned off all the distractions,
The cellphone, the tv, the music, distractions,
I noticed the flowers in bloom in the yard,
The sound of the birds and the insect’s alarm.
I noticed my breathing the fresh air around,
The sounds of my children speaking around.
I noticed they loved the look in my eye
When distractions gone, and they saw my delight.
I noticed the quiet, the calm and the peace
And talking to God was immediate ease.
And I noticed that life was much better by ten
And decided the distractions were at a permanent end.❤
Some things, I am learning gradually but do not yet quite understand 100%. One of these is the perpetuation of prayer, it’s continuousness in my soul and spirit of asking God stuff. I can have an issue or problem on my mind or soul or spirit and rather than issuing the same prayer about it more than once, God continues to hear that prayer and at the right time when I am ready to receive the answer, God indeed answers that problem. I had that happen today and I am out loud giving God the glory for the answer to a problem of about a year now. And I received the answer through a fellow blogger’s blog tonight, Joshua Shea, and he is searching, not a Christian yet to my knowledge. But I am quite certain the answer was from the Holy Spirit nonetheless. And the glory goes to God almighty, who can answer our prayers and clarify our issues however and through whomever He wishes. I am floored by the amazing God we serve! Oh how I love Him!❤❤❤
I decided to write a new book… Wisdom from Fasting will be the title. The reason I will write it is because I want every Christian to fast and see the enormous blessings of this obedience. God draws so close and gently to you. Prayers under the obedience and faith of fasting are answered personally. God draws close. It is the most beautiful experience of God’s love and care. This weekly obedience is the best decision of my life.😄❤
If there was ever a nicer day than today, it has escaped from my memory banks. Many things made it the nicest. The obvious one is the weather. Beautiful blue skies, cool breeze, warm sun and refreshing after-the-rain smell and freshness. But also making it nice is having a pause in my work to take my daughter to the park and be able to praise God for His glorious creation so beautifully shown in the nature here. Also nice is that the rain last night helped my newly planted fence-vine shoots to be healthy and happy. Also, the fence is now officially completed in preparation for the promised Christmas dog. The sun feels great on my skin. Zach is at his dad’s so is not bring picked on at home. Everyone is healthy and prayed over. And I cannot help but believe this to be the nicest day ever. And now I shared it with you. And I hope God blesses you today also with the nicest day ever. ❤
I ponder life, with its brevity and pain.
I ponder life, with its glory and triumph.
I ponder life, and how precious every soul is
How connected we are in our dependence and makeup
Our chemistry and design, our breath in and out.
I ponder life and our connectedness, up close
And I see no difference between us, none.
My life and your life, no matter the shell or mask,
Share the same oxygen, need the same nutrients
I ponder life in its base form, I see it.
Do you? If you do, we share that vision.
We share even the knowledge that we matter.
Every life has value, preciousness to God.
We share a Creator. I ponder life.
And you are beautiful to me, I am beautiful too.
And no matter your views,you are precious.
Don’t let evil hate divide us as it is trying so hard to do
Those serving selfish greed or evil hatred or ego.
Let us know better about life and its tenderness.
Let me love you and you love me. Join my hand.
Declare that we pondered life and decided to keep it
For it is designed to be kept and appreciated.
And united we are standing tall and strong
And divided we choose not to be or we would fall.
I ponder life and decide it is precious, yours and mine.❤
Today I planted peas, carrots and radishes. We already have blackberry bushes growing and rosemary thriving. I also transplanted two ginger plants the birds were kind enough to plant in our yard. So God has been good to us. And very little in life brings me more sheer joy than working our garden. I was raised on a farm in Buchanan, Michigan and having a garden was my normal. I live it. It has taken me a while to Learn the stark differences to growing food in central Florida. Growing seasons are different, soil needs a lot of love constantly, bugs are incredibly resilient and prolific, so on. So these first few years are experimental but I am hopeful we will do well. I am watching a lot of youtube tutorials for our area. So may God bless our efforts and let’s see what happens. 😄❤
