WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  Is “THIS” some kind of “CRAZY” coincidence???  BAM!!!  Somehow…“THIS” brochure screamed at me amid the huge pile of mail atop our kitchen counter :  “Revolutionary Yoga Rehabilitation” with THE MAIN OBJECTIVE to, “Reduce stress & optimize rehabilitation outcomes!”  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

My initial thought:  “Reducing ANY stress in the work environment for ANY body will yield reduced stress for EVERY body in that said work environment.”  And add to that: “optimizing rehabilitation outcomes”???!!!???!!!???!!!   NO THINKING NECESSARY!!!   Just…

“MOUNTAIN OF MIRACLE”

BAM!!!  What an AMAZING Saturday evening at ABC (Anastasia Baptist Church) as we continue with the series:  “Mountain Tops”.   “I”…NEEDED THIS MESSAGE…BADLY!!!  EVERYTHING about the service was AMAZING.  The band played and sang songs with words that touched me deeply, such as:  1.  “Your love is fierce;”  2. “It Is Well With My Soul;”  3.  “We Will Not Be Shaken; and 4.  “God of miracles we need your supernatural love to break through”.

WHEW!!!  I CRIED, folks.  Uncontrollably, while  sob-singing those words that cut my heart open like a butcher knife amid my life’s current turmoil.  Crying felt GOOD.  The tears, ABSOLUTELY, cleansed me.  My heart still aches a bit,  but a sense of “PEACE” has returned.  Thank you, Jesus.

“LIFE IS DIFFICULT,” folks.  Every second of Every Minute of Every HOUR of EVERY SINGLE DAY.  Day-in…Day-out.  God was surely healing my broken heart with those specific songs last night…readying my “SELF” for the reception, ingestion, and digestion of the AMAZING spiritual message to follow.

Bullet points of this weekend’s sermon included:

A–“The Lord accomplishes miracles to achieve eternal ends.”  God’s miracles “HELP” to build our FAITH, ensuring eternal life for ALL believers.

B–“Jesus guides  me through my need.” Thank you, Jesus.  I WILL follow.

C–“Jesus establishes authority in my chaos.”  He’s got this, Jill.  Relax.  Be patient.  ALL IS WELL.

D–“Jesus reveals the way to eternal life.”  Jesus IS the way.  BAM!!!  Powerful stuff, folks.

Thank you, Pastor Walter.  This weekend’s message…???…???…???…was so, So, SO relevant to my specific “SPIRITUAL JOURNEY,” Right Here…RIGHT NOW.  Thank you, Jesus.  “IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL.”

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

John 6:1-15, 35-40

REAPING WHAT YOU SOW

GALATIANS 6: 7-9

“Don’t be mislead-you cannot mock the justice of God.  You will always harvest what you plant.  Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature.  But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.  So let’s not get tired of doing what is good.”  AMEN and AMEN.

ANGER, HATE, ABUSE, AND BULLYING…will NOT yield the results you desire.  BAD + BAD = MORE BAD.  DO NOT be surprised when the “STUFF” you sling at teammates gets slung RIGHT back at ya!!!

WE ARE A STRONGER TEAM…WHEN WE PLAY “TOGETHER”!!!   “HELPING”…NOT “HURTING”.

I will now close with a note to “SELF”:  Galatians 6:4-5

“Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you don’t need to compare yourself to anyone else.  For we are each responsible for our own conduct.”  NLT

OUCH!!!  “For we are each responsible for our own conduct.”  DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!

THE END

 

 

 

THE NEVER-ENDING GAME

I have been “HERE” before.  Playing the EXACT same “GAME,” kinda.  The coaches are the same.  The main players are the same.   Now, the specifics may NOT be “EXACT,” BUT…”THIS”…is the same ‘ole, same ‘ole “MATCH-UP”…ALL OVER AGAIN.  With the final shot throwing “THIS” game into “OVER-TIME”…AGAIN!!!  

BUT WAIT…STOP  E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!!!  I “think” we’re on the same team.  :/  “WINNING”…only happens when we play “TOGETHER”.  “HELPING” each other.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SAYING “IT”…LIKE IT “IS”

Now, “THAT’S RIDICULOUS”!!!  OUCH!!!  THE TRUTH HURTS.  I do NOT mean to “HURT” any ONE (generally), but I SIMPLY could NOT “HELP” my “SELF”…  :/  OOPSE…I DID IT AGAIN, folks!!!

“LIFE IS DIFFICULT!!!”  For everybody.  EVERYWHERE.  The tension in the air is so very, Very, VERY thick right now.  “STOP!!!  IN THE NAME OF LOVE.”  Before you strike a teammate while they’re down.  “YOUR” anger is NOT representative of others’ inadequacies.  It represents your own.

NOTE TO ALL:  PLEASE BE KIND, folks.  The words we speak and the actions we take paint a portrait of our inner selves.  AND…they greatly influence how others view us, as well.  DON’T LIKE YOUR PIC???  THEN RE-PAINT IT!!!  

GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!

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