JESUS AT THE TABLE…

ABC Sunday Service, 4/6/14.  “Jesus, overturn my table…reveal the dirt beneath the surface.”  Matthew 21:12

WOW!!!  Casual sin is still sin.  Luke 19:46

The “little” sins… MATTER, folks.  Feeling a little, just a little, “angry” with someone…is a “SIN”.  “Forgive me, Heavenly Father, FOR I HAVE SINNED!!!”  Oh, the daily frustrations.  Oh, the Hourly frustrations.  OH, the MINUTES!!!  THE SECONDS!!!  🙂  “LIFE”…is difficult, folks.  Things are always going “WRONG”!!!  Hurry, hurry, hurry-up and go, Go, GO!!!  Too much to do.  NOT ENOUGH TIME!!!  FRUSTRATION TURNS TO ANGER.  STOP!!!

A special co-worker of mine, Beth, has recently taught me to always ask myself:  “WWJD”…  These letters represent:  “WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?”  I feel a “connection” with Beth.  Ya see, Beth is currently juggling an ENORMOUS… PLATE OF…????  You guessed it… “STUFF”!!! (I think she has a semi-truck full of stuff 😉  “WWJD”?  All this means, folks, is to stop and “THINK” before you act or RE-act.

Most of those things we get angry about???  They don’t really matter at all!!!  Perhaps our anger about this silly little thing right here…IS REALLY… displaced anger regarding something, completely unrelated, “elsewhere…in our own mind”.  Boy, that should sound familiar.  Another point, stressed, throughout this blog.

ANOTHER amazing message delivered by Pastor Walter West at Anastasia Baptist Church.  (Psssttt…I think he was talking directly to “ME”… AGAIN!!! )

“WWJD” = WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?  Ask yourself this question… FREQUENTLY!!!

PLEASE GIVE THE BEST OF YOURSELF FOR “JUST” TODAY… “EVERY” DAY!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

PEACE, continued…

“INNER” vs. “INTER”

I am hoping you will come along for another journey to “Jill’s world” as I reflect on a previous post regarding “PEACE,” published 4/4/14.  It has occurred to me that there may be some confusion.  Please note that the following entails my own, individual viewpoints.  My opinions.  My definitions.  In that previous post, the “PEACE” I  refer to has a spiritual base to it.  IT IS SOLID AS A ROCK!!!

“INNER” PEACE, folks.  The peace found “within yourself” despite the chaos that surrounds you… DAILY.  Just… LIVING life.  Just… SURVIVING life.  This kind of peace can only be God-given.  It is guaranteed if you choose to follow Jesus, according to His word.  This “peace” is also individual.  You, either have it…OR…you don’t.  And believe me,  OTHER people can tell when you have this type of “INNER” peace.  It is AMAZING, folks.  AMAZING GRACE.  SATAN tries to insert himself amidst this “INNER” peace, however, fails.  God… IS ALLMIGHTY!!!

AND… “INTER” PEACE.  This is the peace found “between individuals”.  It does not, necessarily, require a spiritual base.  It is NOT God-given.  This “PEACE,” is also… NOT a guarantee.  It DOES NOT…LAST FOREVER.  SATAN interjects himself between individuals sharing “INTER” PEACE…AND SUCCEEDS!!!  The result?  Death and destruction occurs within groups of individuals co-existing under this guise of “INTER” PEACE.

I realize that we are where we are along this path to PEACE.  Those who have set out to follow this path are, undoubtedly, at different locations.  And many OTHERS have chosen a completely different route, altogether.  That’s “LIFE,” folks.  IT IS…WHAT IT IS.  To him.  To her.  To me.  To you.

P.H.P., folks.  PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE.

GO TEAM.  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
