Unplugging Your Pen

I can’t do it, LORD.
I just can’t stop writing.
It’s like plugging my ears to You.
You are far too exciting!
You share Your secrets
And bless me with insight.
You help me bless others
And shine Your light.
Your words pour down
Like rain on my soul,
Sometimes rushing
Like waves that roll.
How dare I miss
One single Word.
How dare I not share
What I have heard.
Your words give life.
They’re what I breathe.
Without their presence,
My soul doth seethe.
Though doubts can challenge
My obedience to You,
I must write
And share more of You!

Gifts 2017 #15 Generosity

Christmas Countdown: Generosity is a GIFT: Giving something to someone when you have no obligation to give… is an act of generosity… a gift for the recipient of such an act of kindness. God has allowed me to be on the receiving end of that gift from some very dear people, and sometimes what I have received allowed me to help others as well! God is so amazing to allow us to be and to watch hearts working on His behalf!

Gifts 2017 #7 Friendship

Christmas Countdown: God gave me the gift of Seeds of friendship. So thankful for His planting them into my life. Whether they be neighbors, church friends, childhood friends, work friends, school friends, college friends, family friends, friends from being known as someone’s mom, Jaycee friends, Facebook friends, of the blessed community of WordPress friends… or even just as beautiful friends in Christ… I am blessed with each one. Even my friends in heaven… who give me reason and hope for heaven! ❤

“Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
– John 15:13 KJV

That would be our best friend Jesus! ❤
