AMAZING GRACE…

BAM!!!  YOU…are NOT gonna believe “THIS,” folks.  I, SIMPLY, CANNOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP!!!  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  Now, I would like to…???…???…???…”BEG” you to accompany me on this next trip to “JILL’S WORLD”!!!  It’s gonna be a “GREAT” read…I PROMISE!!!

Hhhmmm…so where should I begin “THIS” post???  DOUBLE Hhhmmm, Hhhmmm!!!  How about with the previous post dated today: Sun. 10/11/15???  “DENYING THE TRUTH” is an idea that has been troubling me for awhile since going “OUT THERE” to share the message of numberoneteam.net with random folks in the community…“OUT THERE”…SOMEWHERE!!!

There are approximately 3 previous posts regarding this same type-of “DIFFICULTY” I’ve experienced “OUT THERE” in the recent past.  And wouldn’t you know that I just happened upon ANOTHER similar encounter just yesterday that I was moved by…so much, in fact, that I awoke in the wee hours, ~3:30 am, to begin writing that previous post, “DENYING GOD”!!!  WHEW!!!  It sure took  awhile to finish it, but Chris and I…MADE IT TO THE CHURCH ON TIME…for the 9:30 am service at Anastasia Baptist Church (ABC) here on the island in St. Augustine, FL.  DOUBLE WHEW, WHEW!!!

Pastor Walter began a new series this weekend called, “Anchor”.  I’VE GOT CHILLS, folks!!!  You will NOT believe this!!!  TODAY’S SERMON…was titled, “Anchor 1:  Eternal Life is Only Through Jesus”.  I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT!!!  I, somehow, felt moved to write about that VERY same thing EARLIER… in  the wee hours of this am!!!  And then…Pastor Walter ALSO went into a short discussion regarding the importance of FORGIVENESS!!!  I AM NOT KIDDING, folks!!!  HA!!! “FORGIVENESS” was a post published at this site on 10/6/15.  DOUBLE HA, HA!!!  It’s almost “CRAZY” how my life seems to preclude or parallel many of ABC’s church sermons…in sync!!!

Shortly after church I ran over to Walmart Supercenter…and the CRAZIEST thing happened, folks!!!  A random woman, Teresa, initiated conversation with me and we ended up praising Jesus RIGHT there… in the middle of a shopping isle!!!  BAM!!!  I am NOT kidding, folks.  And “THEN”… a random young lady, Emily, ALSO joined in this God-centered conversation RIGHT there WITH us…STILL in the middle of that same shopping isle!!!  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  All three of us referenced a chain of events, indicating that our chance meeting HAD to have been perfectly orchestrated from above.  “THIS”…was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, folks!!!

THE ENTIRE WEEKEND has reminded me, ever-so-perfectly, of God’s AMAZING GRACE.  Also allowing me to witness the kindness of strangers in giving money and food items to an elderly woman at a busy intersection and in my unexpected re-connection with a former co-worker while in attendance of a house-warming party.  My  former co-worker’s last name is “HOPE” and guess what???  She is ALSO in the process of Following Jesus with a recognized purpose of sharing the Word!!!

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

DENYING THE TRUTH…

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK… according to 2 Timothy 2:12:

“If we endure hardship,
we will reign with him.
If we deny him,
he will deny us.”

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Yep, I have entered the “JILL ZONE,” folks…on my way to “JILL’S WORLD”.  Will you please come along on another trip WITH me???  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I LOVE TO TRAVEL WITH TEAMMATES!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  READY???  SET??? HERE WE  go, Go, GOOOOOO…

The above scripture, 2 Timothy 2:12, is a LOVING “reminder” to ALL of us, so called, Christians.  Hhhmmm…I found myself involved in ANOTHER conversation [“OUT THERE”] with a “teammate” that made me wonder:  “Why are so many people, blatantly, denying God?”  Many of whom refer to themselves as “Christians”.  Hhhmmm… “Christians” having DIFFICULTY proclaiming their FAITH in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  Yep, there are Christians having DIFFICULTY proclaiming their FAITH in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  :/

“BEEN THERE.  DONE THAT.”  I was VERY guilty of denying Him in the early stages of this blogging venture.  Satan promoted my hesitance to proclaim the Truth by  convincing me that I “CARED” for and wanted to “HELP” ALL people, NOT just Christians.  I “GET IT,” folks.  This is where I first thought that I did NOT want to “OFFEND” anyone by consistently proclaiming my faith in Jesus Christ.   Therefore, I “DENIED” Him, subtly.  And subconsciously.  OUCH!!!  

The content of this blog has grown increasingly faith-based since its conception in my mind, throughout the birthing labor pains of numberoneteam.net and in its current  developmental stage of  INFANCY.  “THIS” [blog] is a depiction of my “Spiritual Life Journey,” folks.  EVERYONE…is on their own life-long “JOURNEY” from “HERE” to “THERE”.  AND…we are ALL at different locations along these journeys from “HERE” to “THERE,” respectfully.    I KNOW where I’m going.  THE QUESTION???  Where are YOU going???  I HOPE(Heaven Over-Powering Earth) to see you there…ONE FINE DAY!!!  AMEN.

“LIFE IS DIFFICULT,” folks.  Can we please just “HELP” each other along the way???  Eternal Life is a FREE gift from God…paid for by the blood of His son, Jesus.

WARNING!!!  WARNING!!!  SATAN IS TRICKY, folks!!!  He disguises himself as a compassionate thought or feeling of not wanting to “OFFEND” others.  Hhhmmm…well, perhaps some “others” NEED to be offended, folks…OUT OF LOVE, NOT ANGER.  Luke 10:27 tells us that to inherit eternal life, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’  And, “Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”  BAM!!!  God desires that we share the Word with EVERYONE…in a loving manner…as a means to extend God’s gift of eternal life to all who choose to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  He is the ONLY way to Eternal Life, folks.  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  And NOW…

THE CHOICE IS YOURS… 

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