I haven’t been present here on my blog for sometime. The main reason is something that I’ve mentioned before…The Lord has called me to be more intentional with relationships and discipleship, which limits my time online. If anyone out there is still following, I thought […]

I want to express my sincere thanks to all those who have been praying for my Dad. He is out of the hospital, but Docs are still a bit baffled by his recurring symptoms. Continuing to seek answers. He has been in so much pain, and it is always hard to see anyone you love experience this…again, thank you sweet Sisters, for your faithful prayers. Our Father meets us in our prayers and always has love to share with us.
Here is July’s Bullet Journal Calendar!
Day 25 / John Study / She Reads Truth THE SON OF GOD HELLO! I apologize for my random and infrequent posts of late! It has been over a week with my dad in the hospital…every day has been a different experience! The doc’s cannot […]
Day 23 / John Study / She Reads Truth
GLORIFY YOUR SON
John Chapter 17 is ALL about LOVE.
Love= assigning worth to another at cost to yourself.
This is what Jesus came to do. Love at ALL COST.
In this Chapter of John we are honored and privileged to “hear” our Savior and KING’S heart for His people. His most personal request.
Knowing that ALL would betray Him (even His closest friends) He prayed on their (our) behalf!
He didn’t JUST pray for the Father to forgive us, or even for the Father to heal and restore us…
HE PRAYED THAT WE WOULD ALL BE ONE.
He prayed for more than we would have asked for…He prayed for what He knew we needed…beyond what we would even hope for ourselves.
and then, He died for us.
All of us.
You and me.
John Chapter 17 is ALL ABOUT CRAZY LOVE.
LOVE for us yes…& LOVE for the Father…above all else
JOHN 17: 1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, 2 since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. 3 And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. 4 I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.
As the Father is glorified, through the sacrifice of Christ…we are saved.
We were BORN out of love…and that love doesn’t end.
If I ever feel rejected, dismissed, looked over, forgotten, all things are put into perspective as I allow God’s Words to penetrate my heart.
John Chapter 17…The Love Chapter.
This is a well worn Chapter in my Bible.
It is the definiton of Love, plain and simple. It is the Glory of the Lord spoken from the heart of Jesus.
I thought it would be GREAT exercise for you to re-write John 17.
At least part of it. Let the love sink in.
That’s why I left more space for you to write ❤️
May you understand more fully, the Love your God has for you.
KNOW you are loved.
Day 19 / John Study / She Reads Truth THE TRUE VINE Today’s scripture is so personal for me. It’s all about who we are, and who we are not. God is God, and I am not. Knowing this truth is one thing…BELIEVING it …another. […]
Day 18 / John Study / She Reads Truth THE ONLY WAY I’ve heard it said, many times, by many different people… “There isn’t just one way to God.” (Oprah made this statement famous) OR “I’m a good person, I try to “do right” most […]
Day 17 / John Study / She Reads Truth
John 13 / SERVANT OF ALL
When “squeezed” Jesus served…out of love.
In the study notes today Erin says it like this:
“I’ve heard it said that suffering reveals the real you. What comes out of our mouths when life squeezes us in its vise grip is the stuff we’re really made of.” -Erin Davis
Can you even imagine?????!!!! Washing the feet of your friends whom you knew would betray you? That’s the kind of vise grip that causes us sinners to ooze out muck. And most of the time, even a gentle squeeze can produce stinky juices.
Jesus instructed us to follow HIS example:
12 When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? 13 You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. 16 Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. -John 13
We certainly can’t produce sweet juice when squeezed without His help.
Thanks Erin Davis for this “picture” of our sin nature. It will help me to remember to pray for sweet fruit…That I might be filled with the Spirit in order to better SERVE and LOVE.
Day 16 / John Study / She Reads Truth John 12 / THE FATHER’S SON THE PANDO TREE The PANDO tree reminds me of the incredible grace filled mystery… that We can ALL be one… the Father, Son, Holy Spirit, and me! Here’s a bit […]
