BAM!!! I can NOT win on my OWN, folks!!! I already know this, don’t I??? I am CERTAIN of it!!! Why, oh why, do I stop my “SELF” short of victory in so many situations???
TAKE, for example, our current Women’s Bible Study at Anastasia Baptist Church: “The Armor of God”. WHAT AN AMAZING STUDY, folks!!! I went to class last evening, however, not having completed the week’s assignments!!! 🙁 OUCH!!! I was LOST. I did NOT “GET” the topics discussed. WHY??? BECAUSE I DID NOT COMPLETE THE WORK!!! DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!
LIFE HAS BEEN DIFFICULT, folks. I have allowed my “SELF” to be anxious and uptight about earthly/humanly difficulties…UNNECESSARILY!!! Hurrying around to accomplish unimportant things, nervously, thereby NOT taking the time I need to calm my “SELF” in His word. In His presence. WHY, JILL???!!!???!!!???!!!
I JUST NOW SAID TO MY “SELF”: “SELF, DO NOT SWEAT THE LITTLE STUFF”!!! OUCH!!! WAIT A MINUTE!!!…!!!…!!!…didn’t I recently make a special “NOTE TO SELF” about not sweating the little stuff??? I SURE DID, folks!!! 3/27/16, in the post titled, “TOUGH ENOUGH???!!!???!!!???!!!”
DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!! On a good note???…???…???…I just finished Day #4 of last week’s bible study!!! WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! I don’t feel quite so “LOST” anymore!!! DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!
SPEND TIME IN THE WORD, JILL!!! DAILY!!! Jesus will guide my steps through difficult situations…”IF” I keep Him near me.
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.
