Still Climbing

narrow path to heaven

 

 

 

So, here I am. Still moving forward. Upward. Still climbing that narrow path that will someday lead me home to Heaven.  And home is the perfect word. Sometimes I find myself acting like an impatient child. Pouting and throwing a fit…but, I’m ready to go home…to Heaven.

There are days that feel like they will never end. Days where the climb almost seems too much. Moments that I see the spiritual pain and suffering in those around me and it makes me hurt. Needless worry and stress that zaps the joy from the hearts of those I know and love. If we just lay it all at the feet of Jesus, He will take care of it.

Now, grant it, I’m no Saint. I make lots of mistakes and sometimes I lose sight of my journey. I am only human. But, there are other days when the Holy Spirit is so alive in me that I could run right down the middle of town shouting the good news that Jesus is still in the saving business and He is coming back soon. Very soon.

Are you ready? Do you have yourself in order? Did you know that the Bible says…

But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. Matthew 12:36 KJV

empty-words

 

 

Let that sink in…Every Idle Word!!

Do you know how many idle words I say per day?! It’s overwhelming. Let’s challenge ourselves. If you are reading this, let’s go one full day with no idle words. No speaking under our breath. No judgmental comments. No negative feedback.

Can you do it? I’m certainly going to try.

Let us lift each other in prayer. Let us give thanks for all the blessings we have. Let us rejoice in the day that the Lord has given us. God bless all of you.

Delighting in the Lord

Delighting in the Lord

Good Morning Everyone~

I hope as you read this you are having a wonderful day. I woke up this morning to a blanket of stars and a sliver of moon. However, that quickly gave way to the beautiful sunshine and cool, crisp air.  Everyone who knows me is well aware of the fact that I love this time of year.  What a day to delight in the Lord.

My heart is over flowing this morning for no other reason than I’m alive and Jesus loves me. I could shout from the rooftops. Have you ever had those moments…where you could just run down the street, yelling out….Jesus is coming! Jesus will be here soon. I’m having one of those moments and it feels divine!!

Whom having not seen, ye love;

in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing,

ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

1 Peter 1:8

Joy Unspeakable!!  Amen!!!

I have found the joy no tongue can tell,
How its waves of glory roll;
It is like a great o’erflowing well,
Springing up within my soul.

I’m ready!  Today, I am ready to see Jesus. I wanna see those clouds part…I wanna meet him in the sky. Whew! I feel like shoutin’.  If I could only bottle this up…

My prayer is that you delight yourself in the Lord. Let Him have His way with you today. Surrender and find that ‘joy unspeakable and full of glory:’

God Bless~

No Fear!!

Today, I will show no fear.

I will not waiver on my choices because deep
down I know right from wrong.  I will not lie “just a little” so that I can make
someone feel good about what they said, what they are wearing or what they did.
I will boldly proclaim the truth because truth is righteous and truth is truth.

What I send forth will not be sent in vain.  It will be planted, it will
be watered, it will be fed and it will grow.  I have no doubt.

My soul will rejoice even in sorrow.  My tears will be caught and my hurt will be
healed.  My hunger will be satisfied and my thirst will be quenched.

My eyes will be open and my heart will be giving.  I will reach out to those who
are in need.  I will feed.  I will clothe and I will give shelter.  I will be a
better person.

I will be an example.  I will be a light…a voice…a vessel.

Today, I will show no fear.

I will shout the good news!  Let my voice fill the air and carry the name of Jesus on it’s wings.  Let it swirl and
blanket those who need to hear His name…know His story and receive His salvation.

I will not be ashamed.  I will not quench that beautiful spirit.  Let me rise up to meet His calling and fulfill my purpose.

I am a warrior.

I am a lamb.

I am a child of the King of Kings.

Today, I will show no fear.

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
