Been Changing And Learning: Making Progress ~ Life’s Journey

I’ve been experiencing life  in another way. It’s been seven weeks in the making. I’m hanging in there.   Thankful that Jesus is on the journey with us.

I continue to care for a relative. This person has been improving. Thank You, Jesus! I thank God that I’m able to do what I can. God is good.

Also, I continue to watch / and or listen to internet church gathering. I’ve been changing during the past months. God is working in me and through me.

Have A Great Day!
Enjoy the 1st Week In The Autumn Season.
Thanks for reading some of my thoughts.
God bless you.

Let us Pray:

O God, you declare your almighty power chiefly in showing mercy and pity: Grant us the fullness of your grace, that we, running to obtain your promises, may become partakers of your heavenly treasure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Been A Great Auntie Since Sept 23, 1986

I was thinking. I’ve been a great auntie for three decades. How about that? I was only 23. How can this be? I was born an Auntie. Yes, I was born a sister-in-law too.

True story. My eldest brother was married and had a daughter, before I was born. So, I can say, I was born an Auntie. I think that’s cool.

Some of my older nieces and nephews call my Susie. I don’t mind. There are times when we have to make note to tell others who is who. It can be confusion.

Then in 1986, I became a Great Auntie for the first time. I can’t believe it’s been that long. My great nephew don’t look like he’s 30. His mother doesn’t look her age either.

It must be in our blood. People can’t tell our ages. It’s hard to believe when I say things to people. Some think that some of my siblings are my parents. They are old enough to be.

I was thinking about how many nieces and nephews I have that are in their 50’s. That made me wonder. I’m not too old.

May we reflect on things that make us wonder.
May the LORD bless us in our youth.
Amen!Thanks for reading some of  my thoughts.
God bless you.

From One Season Into The Next

It’s been a long Summer. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. There has been some challenges. I’m thankful, we made it through. Pressing on into Autumn.

As I’m looking over my days, I don’t recall some things this Summer.  I would have to look at my notes. It’s been a very long Summer.

I’ve been learning in the process as I’m moving on throughout my life. There were some scary and tough moments during this Summer. I’ve been praying a lot.

Just think, we’re in the transition of two seasons. It’s somewhat like life. We have to adjust to the next season  in our lives.  We have to flow with where God is leading to into.

We don’t know what’s ahead for us. But, one thing we should know, that Jesus has gone on before us. He’s leading us in the way we need to be going.

May we see the good in every season we enter into.
May the LORD help us adjust to the next season in our lives.
May we do the best that we can in the place where God sends us.
Amen!

Thanks for reading some of my thoughts.
God bless you.

May we, with ready wills and hearts obey the calling of our Lord to follow him

We thank you, heavenly Father, for the witness of your apostle and evangelist Matthew to the Gospel of your Son our Savior; and we pray that, after his example, we may with ready wills and hearts obey the calling of our Lord to follow him; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Taking each day, one by one: Staying On The Journey With Jesus

I don’t grow weary in following Jesus. My flesh gets tired and weary. But, I keep on pressing on. Yes, the journey through life appears to be long in the process. We have to go through issues in life.

I’m thankful that I’ve crossed over into my 23rd years with a church community. I’m reflecting on how church life has been changing. And how God has been changing me along the way.

There are things that I’ve been unlearning. It took some time to develop the new ways of thinking.  Life is a journey well-traveled in cycles of learning and unlearning.

The Spirit of God continues to move in my life.. Yes, my thinking isn’t the same. I wonder. I rethink. I repent. Life is all about Jesus. It’s not about us.

Now, there are times in my life, things don’t bother me as much as they use to. I remind myself, I don’t need to go there any more. I don’t get the last word about things. In some situations, it’s not worth it. I’m learning.

I’m moving with the flow of the Holy Spirit. I’m taking each day, one by one. I believe that God is guiding me onward into the direction I need to be going. I’m staying on the journey with Jesus.

May we see that every day has its own troubles.
May we make the most of each given day we’re blessed with.
May we  flow with what the Holy Spirit is leading us to do.
Amen!

Thanks for reading some of my thoughts.
God Bless you.

Hold fast to those that shall endure

Grant us, Lord, not to be anxious about earthly things, but to love things heavenly; and even now, while we are placed among things that are passing away, to hold fast to those that shall endure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
