It sure seems like I just finished a healing journey, where I was bound in some way by lies, emotional wounds, grief, anger, mental pain, so many distractions and things and my own pride and desires had kept me not quite healed up. And today I woke up a little less groggy than usual (not being a morning person) and realized I am completely free, completely healed. I am healed by God. I thought I had been but healing my body was the final healing. I had give God every part of me to heal, forgive, be in charge of, and love. Except my body. I had kept that for myself. Now I have obeyed with my body also and put it under God’s will and God is everything now. This is beautiful! This is true freedom and true peace and joy. It is a place of truth and closeness to Jesus. I am so happy and much more than that, I have peace. My mind is calm, and those who know me get the significance of that. It frees me to love. I am not constantly rolling, I can chill with clarity and peace. My joy is back. One piece of the puzzle can matter so much! Give Him every aspect of you for health and healing and He will bless you beautifully!!😄❤
Friends from 72 Countries this month have found and read my blog somehow. That tells me people are searching for truth, hope and Jesus, for that is about all I talk about. And I find this to be very unifying and beautiful. I have never seen color or status on people (I am from a merger of missionary and farm families). I have been dirt poor and quite wealthy and had peace in God in both instances, with a little more joy in poverty than wealth somehow. My mom lived in Africa the first 8 years of her life, so color is diversity and beautiful to me. I myself am not white but a peachish- tan. Lol. So, I do not talk about color or status or fleeting/meaningless outward beauty treatments and dress or most other things. I speak about God, Jesus’ salvation He offers as a free gift, the Bible truths in verse, the church family and spiritual matters on the journey we are on togethwr with God. These things matter eternally. They are lasting truth with hope and love and faith and passion of God’s love for us. I love writing and love poetry and love people. I want people saved, as many as possible. But more than anything, I love God, love Jesus, love the Holy Spirit and my relationship with Him is the most important thing in the world to me. I would trade any amount of money and jewels and land and whatever the Lord would require of me to maintain my relationship with Him. It is the most important thing in my universe. God is everything to me. It permeates how I think, my service to others, my family care and support, my relationships, my everything. So praise God for blessing me with any good thing He provides and for the lessons that come from the bad. And I thank God for every bit of it for He knows and sees what is best and beautiful, loves me and wants the best for me in the long run. Eternity with God is my goal. And I want heaven to be packed. I want to see you there. We are so blessed! Praise God!❤
This made up word “rapture” is a church – slang for being caught up or caught away from earth by God to be saved from the blest part of the tribulation. Being spared and thus rewarded for humble obedience and relationship with God by not going through awful times on earth is the crux of it. People get bogged down by pre-tribulation, mid-tribulation or post-tribulation rapture, but to me that majors on the minors and is not necessary for salvation. If we stay close to God and accept and value salvation through Jesus Christ and live in relationship, communication, worship and obedience with God, heaven is our inheritance and when the rapture happens, we will be caught up to be with Him. If we are living in right relationship with Him, are saved by Jesus’ grace sacrifice and resurrection and live in forgiveness and service to mankind, we have our assurance of salvation, a home in heaven and the fruits of the Spirit no matter what. Be and live right, true and saved and God will keep us forever. If you have some sin struggles- from lying to gossip to unforgiveness to sexual sins to theft to drug abuse to murder and everywhere between, humbly pray for help from God and stop doing them. God is very forgiving. And He wants every person saved and to clean house so He can rescue/rapture as many as possible- everyone would be ideal. He loves us- you, me, everyone. ❤
The word “love” is powerful.
It means different things to different wings
Backs decisions to fight or hold
Never deviates in its true form.
When coming from God, it never dies
Though people have a different view.
But the word when said dries tears
There is comfort in the word
For we all want it’s true form.
We all want pure, true, Neverending
We all want powerful security
We all want someone to value us
We all want honor, peace and respect
We all need love.
Oh the power of one word.
Oh the power of God who is perfect love.❤
I cannot judge another soul for I am as guilty at everything as they are. Sad but true. Just because I confess all to God and have repented and forgiven as instructed frees me of the guilt and purifies me. But I am just as corrupt as the next guy or gal apart from Jesus’ salvation. So I cannot judge anyone. That is God’s job. If I am wronges, I cannot judge them but can object and bring it to their attention so they know they have wronged me. Then the ball is in their court and they have a chance to change. If they refuse, I have a choice to keep putting up with it and keep forgiving g indefinitely and pray for them (which I currently am) or disassociate myself from them. Am I any better than them? No, I am just as capable of sinning and have to repent daily and keep praying for forgiveness. But because I humble do this, I am better off, for I have peace. I may never be happy with the situation of continuous wrong done to me daily but I have joy under it, legs of hope to stand on, and this beautiful opportunity to grow my humbleness. And I am all the better off for it. ❤
Working on gardening was serene.
Hard work is no bother at all.
Family time was sweeter still.
Landscaping flowed beautifully.
After the poolside was lovely,
Offering rest and warmth.
And wind and some clouds happened by
But I care for them not at all
For today the sun kissed me.
And with the God- made sun’s kiss, I bask
In the comforting warmth of God’s love.❤
So, I am up for renewal of my Audiology license and every other year am forced with a smile to do 30 CEUs (continuing education units). I can only do 10 hours as day, so am forced to do them as such over a 3 day span to knock them out. It costs a heap of money and is intrusive but I understand why they exist… to make someone money and be a pain in the neck. But I also learn a tad bit. Being a doctor for 15 years, I know a little bit about my profession. I don’t know everything so it is a wee good in a skantish way. But anyway, I am plugging along, getting my first 10 finished and reported today. Two more days of this nonsense to go. Yippee. But as a bonus break because God loves me, we had an extra band practice tonight! Highlight of my study day for sure. We have the best band we have ever had and we are a great, positive family having a whole heap of fun and making the most amazing music together! It is a blessing and and half and I believe God put us together. No doubt in my mind. Thank you, God!❤
