Happily Ever After

According to Pastor Morris, I have been married twice.
My 1st husband was the Law.
My 2nd husband is Jesus Christ.
Those of you who voice your concern
because I am blessed with singleness
will either be disturbed or comforted by this.
Let me help you all to be comforted.
I am still married to my 2nd husband
and will be till the day I die…
AND in eternity!
His love will NEVER DIE!! ❤
Jesus is the LOVE OF MY LIFE!! ❤
He is the LOVER OF MY SOUL!! ❤

Philippians 2:14-16

“Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
that ye may be blameless and harmless,
the sons of God,
without rebuke,
in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation,
among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
holding forth the word of life;
that I may rejoice in the day of Christ,
that I have not run in vain,
neither laboured in vain.”
– Philippians 2:14-16 AKJV

Isaiah 61:10

“I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
my soul shall be joyful in my God;
for he hath clothed me
with the garments of salvation,
he hath covered me
with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decketh himself
with ornaments,
and as a bride adorneth herself
with her jewels.”
– Isaiah 61:10 KJV

In the Grip of Sin

gaillovesgodspoetry

Sin… it is so complicated and suffocating.
Once you’ve stepped into it,
It’s hard not to sink from the weight of its heaviness.
The burden of guilt and shame
Can follow like a shadow in the night.
In a moment of sin, I walked myself into the dark.
I submerged myself in danger.
As I sank so fast and so deep, my soul cried out for help.
Too distracted to hear a call from within,
I held onto the hand of sin.
Together we kept me from escaping,
Pretending things were getting better,
And at times believing nothing was wrong.
In a moment of compassion
The Maker of my soul charged forth and spoke.
With His hand reaching to pull me out,
He rescued me from the bottomless pit.
Even as I fought to stay behind with my friend sin,
My God knew where my heart really was.
Just before…

Galatians 3:26-28

“For ye are all the children of God
by faith in Christ Jesus.
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ
have put on Christ.
There is neither Jew nor Greek,
there is neither bond nor free,
there is neither male nor female:
for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
– Galatians 3:26-28 AKJV

Liebster Award 12.31.18

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through and steal:
but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
-Matthew 6:19-21 AKJV

Lord, You have sent me a treasure from You that I will be able to give back to You… a crown to lay at Your feet.

Stu’s Questions for Me:
1. What is your greatest fear?
disappointing my Jesus 😦
2. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
to give my heart and soul to Jesus ❤
3. Do you prefer wild game, such as deer, rabbit and squirrel or do you prefer “domesticated” like cow and chicken?
domesticated
4. What was your favorite toy as a child?
I really don’t remember any toys other than coloring books & crayons my granddad use to buy me, and a small Pillsbury Dough Doll that the head came off of but would still do the famous giggle if you pushed his belly.
The doll thing was strange and I really wasn’t into dolls, so I’ll go with coloring books & crayons.
Oh wait! The Lord is reminding of a jump rope I earned when I was 6 years old by memorizing John 3:16 for a church bus driver! Mr. Farlough challenged me to learn it and I knew it by the next time he picked me up. It would be a few years before I really understood it, but it stayed with me for life! (the verse not the rope 😉 ) ❤
5. What is your favorite past time activity?
spending alone time with God ❤
6. What’s your most embarrassing moment?
too embarrassing to mention (Thank You, Lord, for discretion!)

learning about my precious Jesus at 8 yrs old ❤
and being baptized just weeks later ❤
8. Do you agree that dating after marriage is vital to the nurturing of your relationship?
While it can have an important and helpful role for some, I do not think it is vital to nurture a relationship. Keeping Christ first and center is most important for nurturing a relationship.

Sorry

Opened Eyes, Wondrous Things

“Open thou mine eyes,
that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law”
– Psalm 119:18 KJV

Today was choose any verse of your own. I am using the verse that is at the bottom of the Christmas 31 Day Scripture Writing Plan... Psalm 119:18. It’s a perfect one in describing what Your word does in opening my eyes and helping me to see… to understand. There are so many pleasures and treasures in Your word. Even my notes from church today go with this.

Looking on failures causes us to recognize You.
If we keep our eyes on Jesus, we will know Him.
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus! ❤
I love that hymn!

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus – hymn lyrics by Helen Howarth Lemmel

Don’t believe everything you think.
You cannot be trusted to tell yourself the truth.

Stay in the word.
– Evangelist Jerry Bridge

Thank You for allowing me to see You in every page… in every word!
You are everything to me, Father! ❤
Thank You for allowing me to see Jesus! Especially in my heart!
What love! ❤
Thank You for allowing me to see the Holy Ghost leading me to You!
He’s such a Comfort! ❤
