NO RICHER RESTORATION

WOW!!! Today’s message at church was delivered by Rev. Sam Thigpen.  And Yep… HE WAS SPEAKING DIRECTLY TO “ME”!!!  I JUST KNOW IT!!!  DOUBLE WOW, WOW!!!

The message???  “…Rebuilding and Restoring Relationships”.  Yep, I am struggling, folks.  “LIFE IS DIFFICULT!!!”  And Satan is using my life’s difficulties to create a distance between me and those who matter most in my “LIFE”:  God, family, friends.  It’s hard to explain…

Today’s message at church, however, WAS JUST WHAT I NEEDED!!!  With the main points being as follows:

–Restore each other with a spirit of gentleness.
Galatians 6:1
You do NOT have to embrace the sin.  Embrace the sinner… with gentleness.

–Carry one another’s burdens.
Galatians 6:2
All I can say is to keep the focus on HELPING:  “P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People”.

–Restoration comes from the Spirit, not the flesh.
Galatians 6:8
Selfishness leads to corruption and a fiery eternity.  Righteousness leads to abundance and an eternal life.

–Don’t give up on one another.
Galatians 6:9
Do not grow weary of “HELPING” others.  We shall reap according to God’s plan…in due time… “IF” we do NOT give up.  GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

I’ve got chills… down the backs of both arms!!!  No kidding.  Thanks, Rev. Sam Thigpen.  I needed today’s message.  And… I LISTENED!!!

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

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

FAMILY MATTERS…

Refers to ALL of those “matters,” A.K.A.: “issues,” having an impact on the overall health and well-being of any family.  Family matters = family issues.  Ya still with me?  DOUBLE HHHMMM, HHHMMM…  Boy, Family matters, or issues, can sure MAKE or BREAK a family, huh???!!!???!!!???!!!  Being able to identify “ISSUES” accurately is so VERY DIFFICULT!!!  But IMPERATIVE… For  family survival…

Aaahhh!!!  “Family Survival”.  Hhhmmm… That sounds like a … Reality Show  or Game!!!  ( A family… ALONE… on an island.  Oh, the probs (problems) to be encountered!!!  Which family member will be voted “OFF” the island… FIRST???  HA!!!  You’re ALL thinking about who should be kicked OFF the island in YOUR family, aren’t you???!!!???!!!???!!!  DOUBLE HA, HA!!!  Sorry.  I got distracted…AGAIN!!! 

Funny, huh???  The numberoneteam version of any Reality Show OR Game, however, would include means of “HELPING” a family to be successful.  Identifying “MATTERS” or “ISSUES”… and seeking to resolve them, positively.  For any specific family.  And remember…“Success” to me, might mean “Failure” to you.

And yet another interpretation of “Family Matters” could be implying an intrinsic importance of the family unit:  “FAMILY”… Should… “MATTER”.  FAMILY IS IMPORTANT, right???  Or wrong???

Hhhmmm… what determines the importance of a family…to any one member???  Time… for emotional support???  Time… spent where???  With who?  Doing what???  Money… for financial support???  Money… earned???  Money… saved???  Money… spent???  Whose… time???  Whose… money???   For whose… support???   And what kind of support???  Aaahhh!!!  “THIS”… can become “DIFFICULT”!!!  TO EACH THEIR OWN.  Right???  Or wrong???  (Yep, I got myself “LOST” in there…somewhere…in that place called: “Jill’s World,” A.K.A., “my mind”!!!)  :/

EVERYTHING AFFECTS EVERYTHING!!!  Please make it a priority to ALWAYS seek the “POSITIVE”… IN EVERY SITUATION!!!  “SEEK”… and you shall “FIND”.  MGO, folks!!!  “Seeking the positive in every situation.”  DOUBLE MGO, MGO!!!  Please refer to the 2/24/15 blog post titled,“THE 2015 CHALLENGE”!!!  And then???  TAKE THE CHALLENGE!!!

“Family Matters,” right???  Or wrong???

W00-WHOOOOOO!!!  GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
