3 Day Quote Challenge 4.27.18 Day 3

Well, Dear Lord, here we are on the last day of the quote challenge… that means this is Day 3 of the 3 Day Quote Challenge that Jessy of FAB: Faith and Books nominated me for.
Bless her, Lord, for her kindness.


The rules for this challenge are:

♣ Thank the person who nominated you.

Thank you, Jessy! Its been a blessing!

 Post a quote for 3 days, and explain why it appeals to you.

♣ Nominate 3 bloggers each day!


Here was Day 1 (John 3:16)
Here was Day 2 (John 14:1-6)
Now here is Day 3 (John 14:27)

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
– John 14:27 KJV

If you read the quote from Day 2 (John 14:1-6), you can see how this verse almost seems to say the same because of the terminology “Let not your heart be troubled,” and you will better understand what I mean as I explain why Day 3 is a life verse for me.
I have been taught and/or believed so many things in my life that when Jesus offered  a peace like nothing else, promised like no one else, my soul was ready for such love! ❤
Everyone always wants to use my fears, my emotions, my compassion, and anything else they can to try to get whatever they want from me, even if they have to resort to false guilt. Jesus wants to give me peace! Not as the world gives it…. with strings attached. Jesus wants to give me His peace. A peace that wants my heart to be trouble free and unafraid! No one ever cared for me like Jesus! ❤

Here was Day 1

Today for Day 2 it is John 13:1-6

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

I learned this somewhere along my teenage years, but more as a way to protect me from evil. Kind of the same way a person is taught to say, “God forbid!” if you didn’t want something to happen that either you just said or heard someone else say. Like a jinx eraser. I didn’t even know the line where Thomas asked Jesus how they would know the way if they didn’t know where He was going. I had learned that if I was scared, to repeat these lines. I have always struggled with a great deal of fear as far back as I can remember. So I said this a lot!
It would not be until I was old enough to read the word for myself with the Holy Spirit as my personal guide that I would understand this was Jesus telling me not to let my heart be troubled, not even with needing any jinx eraser. He was telling me since I believe in God to believe in Him because God is His Father. Back home in heaven, Jesus is preparing a place for me, and coming again to take me to my specially designed home, so I can be where Jesus is, and know the way home! When Thomas was asking if he did not know where Jesus was going, how would he (Thomas) know the way, he was basically asking what we all ask.

If we don’t know or understand the things God does,
how do we know we’re doing things the right way?

Jesus gave Him that reassuring answer, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no many cometh unto the Father but by me.” Jesus was saying follow Him and He would lead us home. Like any Good Shepherd!
I now repeat those words (for all kinds of situations) for comfort, peace, and to allow my mind to hear JESUS speaking to me, not the many things that cloud my mind. And I make sure to include the words of Thomas because they are my chance to ask Jesus, “What if I mess up on knowing how to follow You?” And He gets to tell me, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” So I am reassured to just keep following and trusting Him.

Quote for Day 1:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life.”

– John 3:16 KJV

This is a very popular verse. So popular that often times it is intentionally skipped over as trivial or because “everybody knows that one.” It was the first verse I ever learned. I was 6 years old, when Mr. Farlow (the church bus worker from the local church where we would visit when at my grandmother’s house) told me that when I could memorize John 3:16 that he would give me a jump rope.
I knew it by heart the next Sunday… or actually knew it by memory.

You see, what my 6 year old mind heard or understood was…

“This person named God… loved this other person named The World… and that He had a Son. Oh… that’s pretty nice of Him.”

That’s it. That’s all I really got out of it for years. There is no mention of the name of Jesus. Oh yes He is being referred to as the only begotten Son, but one has to know that and understand context. You don’t have that understanding just reading the word if you have never seen it. Especially if you have never read the book. And I had no hope of knowing such a big word like begotten at that age. But once I was old enough to understand salvation and read God’s word myself, having a relationship of my own with God the Father and Jesus Christ His Son, I would remember every single word!
❤ So often it has comforted my soul just to know…

❤ ❤ For God so loved the world! ❤ ❤
❤ ❤ That included me! ❤ ❤
