Teachable

Teachable  "See that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;" Proverbs 24 Sure, you've been around a few years,and been through many experiences.   There is always more to know and understand.  Open your eyes and your heart to the things of God. No one knows all except  God. Ask God what He would have for your life! Who He would have you reach out to.  Open the eyes of my heart Lord, I want to see YOU! ~love jackie

Dear Mean Girl

Dear   Mean Girl, What do you think is at the heart of your meanness?  Maybe fear?   I understand.  More than that, God understands and He wants to heal your heart and help you learn to trust Him in all those hard places. But, you must spend time with Him.....Maybe you already knew that, it doesn't change the fact that, that is exactly what you need..... for depression for anger for fear. Curl up on God's lap and let Him heal you. Love Jackie.  

Fall. Harvest.

Fall is a beautiful time of year.  I remember fall as a time of harvest and preparations.  A busy time.  Preparations for bleak winter with no produce or easy pickings.   Listen, fall's  coming.  Both literally and figuratively.  It's  time to get busy.  The long days of plenty might not be here for a lot longer.  (No need to be discouraged tho, we can look to God to be our provider and shelter) But He does expect us to do our part.   We are in the book of Esther in our Wednesday life class. Esther is a book about  human participation in God's great plan... Esther had to do her part. The harvest is plenteous,  the workers are few. Pray for the Lord to send MORE not less for the harvest.  

Blessings

"God daily loads us with benefits."   Psalm 68:19  My brain knows this intellectually, but I still fail to acknowledge them as blessings and instead reason out why a particular thing has happened.   I dismantle them and search for the meaning and make small the precious gifts I have been given, and even wonder if it was from God.   In short, I listen to my own thoughts more than I rely on God's.  This week, I will receive God's blessings and acknowledge they are from my Father in heaven, Abba, my Savior, my Redeemer, my Rock and Hiding Place. ~love Jackie  

a time to build

Let us be the instruments of change Lord.  Let us be the ones who build and not tear down,  Who heal and not kill.  Let us CHOOSE to build! A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; ah time to mourn, and a time to dance; ... A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Mothers Day

Mothers Day. so many things go through the mind at Mothers Day...... greatest joys deepest hurts   proudest moments maternal bonds Wednesday evening we took a look at the Book of Ruth.  Naomi, Ruth's mother-in-law had to face some very tough situations. Her husband and sons died, one of her daughter-in-laws returned to her former gods.....  Coming back into Bethlehem Judah, the people couldn't even recognize her.  Life had been harsh and hard.   Many times, I think we feel like Naomi.  Life just hurts so much and we are no longer the carefree youth we once were.  We want to sit down and sulk in our hardships. But listen,  He was not finished with Naomi, and He isn't finished with you.   Everyday is a chance to be a difference maker for someone.  Someone to nurture,   Someone to encourage, someone listen, someone to be there.   Mothers Day is a great reminder of the responsibilities we have as Mothers. Not just for your children, but to nurture those around us. 14 And the wo
