Still Going

Happy 209th Day of 2014!

Happy Day to all! Hope all is well with you. I’m still going… Hope you are too.

Last week seem so long. How long was it? It was so long, I forget what day was what. Every day seem to be so long. Thank God I made it.

Finally, when the weekend came, Friday felt like Saturday. So I had two Saturdays last week. LoL I do like Saturday. It’s a day that I like.

Hope you have a great day. Enjoy the last days of July. It hasn’t been to bad here, weather wise. It’s in the low 60’s and the high in the 80’s. It’s the preview of Autumn time again.

May we enjoy the season that we are in. May we keep on going. Amen.

Thanks for reading.

The Things Eternal

Happy 208th Day of 2014!

Prayer for the week of July 27 – August 2, 2014

O God, the protector of all who trust in you, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy: Increase and multiply upon us your mercy; that, with you as our ruler and guide, we may so pass through things temporal, that we lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Enjoying Life

Happy 206th Day of 2014!
Happy Last Weekend of July!

It’s been good week. I got more done than what I thought I could do. Time seem to have flown by this week. I guess I had my mind-set on things. I’m doing okay.

I’m enjoying life more. I have cut back on some things. I’m doing more of what I really enjoy doing. I know we can’t do every things that we like. But if we choose those things that we desire, we can be more productive in life.

It’s hard to keep doing things that can drag us down. Those things we dread doing. It steals our joy. We don’t think right. We tend to grumble.

I know the we can be pressured in doing things. We have to learn what’s best for us. We can’t change by doing things that we don’t really what to do. We have to change our thinking. Or just don’t do things.

Maybe along the line in life, we may try some things we haven’t done. But in the meanwhile, we have to take one step at a time. Things come about as we experience life and life’s happenings.

I’m growing in the some of the things I need to change my thinking about. It can take me a while. Lol I’m thankful for the leading of the Holy Spirit. He guides us into the truth about ourselves. And the truth will set us free.

May the Lord teach us how to enjoy life more. May we flow with the Spirit. Amen.

Have A Great Weekend!

Worst Pain Experienced:

Notes From Thursday, 24 September 2009
Worst Pain Experienced: Made Stronger

I had to think on this one. Worst Pain …? Is that physically, mentally or emotionally?

There have been things in my life that brought some strain and pain to my soul. The battle with lupus on my physical body. The attacks in my mind about my salvation and other things.

I did gain strength and grew stronger in the experiences that I went through. Pain can bring us into a new level with God. It’s God to turn to when things come into our lives.

I grew in my relationship with God during the pain in my life. When I was in physical pain, I talk to God a lot. What else was I suppose to do? God comforted me during what I went through.

I didn’t know that Lupus would do to me. Without the chemotherapy and so forth, I think I wouldn’t be here. As the doctors would say, I am in remission. I am on NO medicine for Lupus. Praise God! (2014 update: I’m on one medicine for lupus. But still in remission.)

As for the mental attacks, I grew more in the LORD. Torment in the mind is NO Picnic. I sought the LORD. Through this drama, I have come to a new level in the LORD. He is my hope and strength in my life.

If you are in pain, may the LORD guide you through. Peace to your soul. Strength to your body. Keep seeking God in all that you go through in Jesus’ name Amen.

On The Journey…
Worst Pain Experienced: Made Stronger

Pain can bring us closer to the LORD.
We can gain strength through pain in life.

Grace and Peace to you,
Susan

ReThinking Some Things

Happy 203rd Day of 2014!
It’s the third day of the week.

I’m so thankful for the first day of the week. It starts the week off right. I attend Sunday worship gatherings on Sunday. I believe in that we should. We gather as the Church celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We had a wonderful gathering as the people of God. We’re still getting use to the time change. 10 AM is the set time for now or until whenever it’s time to have another gathering on Sunday. There are people struggling with the time change. I believe that we will adjust.

I’ll be entering into my 21st year in church attendance. I became a believer in Christ in March of 1983. It wasn’t until September of 1993 when I started to attend church gathering on a regular basis. Yes, it took me about 10 1/2 years to get prepared to become a church go-er at a local church. LOL!

It has been a long church life journey. I’m thankful that I’m apart of a church community. I’ve been learning some things from “church” people. And I’ve been learning some things about the people in the church.

I’m looking forward to my 21st year church attendance anniversary in September. I’m not like that 30 year one back in the days. I’ve come a long ways. I’m on a journey of transformation.

I’ve been re thinking about some things that I’ve learned about church and church life. And I’m unlearning some things too. It’s hard to unlearn some things. It’s like I’m doing wrong. I have to break the habits.

It’s good to rethink some things. As we grow in years, we because wiser in our ways. I’ve been learning from my experiences in life. Life is hard from time to time. We struggle. We fall down. But most important, we have to go to God for guidance.

I try to number my days.
Each day is important.
We learn. We grow. We rethink.
We change each day.

May we learn from our experiences in life. May we understand that we need the church and the church needs us. May the Lord bring us higher in the place where He has been leading us. Amen.

Thanks for reading.

Summertime Doings

Happy 202nd Day of 2014!

It’s been about a month since Summer began. It’s been a good Summer so far. I’ve been enjoying the Autumn weather for the past weeks. I haven’t been complaining about the weather. It’s be wonderful.

We’re in the midst of Summer. Yesterday was wonderful. And today, we’re in a hear wave. Summer has come back from her vacation. I think she had a wonderful time away.

As for me, I’m staying inside as long as I can. I thank God for A/C. I pray that the electricity doesn’t go out. You, know, the “dog days of Summer” haven’t arrived yet.

The garden is coming along well.
Cucumbers are growing big.
The tomatoes should be ready.
I love homegrown veggies.
They are the best.

Hope all are doing okay.
Stay on the journey with Jesus.

May the Lord grant us wisdom to do what is right.
May we continue to enjoy the journey.
Peace be with you.
Amen!


Thanks for reading.

The Fountain Of All Wisdom

Welcome to the 201st Day of 2014!
Happy Day to you!

Prayer for the week of July 20, – 26, 2014

Almighty God, the fountain of all wisdom, you know our necessities before we ask and our ignorance in asking: Have compassion on our weakness, and mercifully give us those things which for our unworthiness we dare not, and for our blindness we cannot ask; through the worthiness of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
