in “ME”. Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
I “KNEW”…this was gonna happen, folks. JILL’S CRAZY COASTER took a sudden and immediate “DROP” that I was quite unprepared for. STRAIGHT DOWN…TO THE GROUND!!! SPLAT!!! 🙁
Now, I have ALWAYS known I need structure. I have ALWAYS known I need to “get my hands dirty,” so-to-speak. “I”…???…???…???…am a “WORKER BEE”. NOT THE QUEEN. “I”…am an “INDIAN”. NOT THE CHIEF. “I,” my friends…???…???…???…AM A “SLAVE”…of Christ. Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
The realization that I am a “SLAVE” hit me like a “ROCK”…just yesterday, 8/4/17. A BIG rock…OUT OF NOWHERE. I was NOT expecting that, folks. “SLAVE” has ALWAYS been a “BAD” word to me. Negative. Indicative of Satanic and “WRONG” treatment of our fellow “TEAMMATES”. Yep, “SLAVE” has ALWAYS been tied to such evil and darkness…in my mind.
OOOooohhhhhh, NOT so, folks. God brought me to a specific place in time. Right Here. RIGHT NOW. To a specific “ANGEL” He purposefully sent to “HELP” guide my “JOURNEY” from “HERE” to “THERE”…in the “RIGHT” direction. BAM!!! Thank-You, Jesus. And, “Thank-You, Joanne”.
“I AM A SLAVE,” folks. That very idea, somehow, formed in my own mind during our conversation. With the words actually coming from my very own mouth to describe the “ME” God intends me to “BEE” (sorry for the pun). :/
I recall telling “TEAMMATES” to just order me around on numerous occasions!!! “TELL ME WHAT TO DO…AND I WILL DO IT!!!” Yep, I am a worker bee. I HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN THAT!!! Yet it somehow hurt as I actually referred to my-own “SELF” as a “SLAVE”. UNTIL…
a trusted “TEAMMATE” lead me down this very path of self-discovery. ANOTHER PERFECT example of how I keep re-learning bits of knowledge in different manners, thereby allowing new applications of old info. to my “SURVIVAL” kit for “LIFE”. BAM!!! THANK-YOU, JESUS!!! THANK-YOU, JOANNE.
“I AM A SLAVE,” folks!!! In “THE PERFECT” kind-of way. Yep, “I AM A SLAVE”… to Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. As designed by God, Himself. And DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!! ANOTHER EPIPHANY…FOR “ME”!!! WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!
I must admit it’s been rather difficult for me to learn this rather simple message, folks. I spent the entire day…YESTERDAY…feeling quite melancholy and “BLUE”. COMPLETELY LOST. Quite dazed and confused…here in Jill-ville. Almost saddened. I actually went to bed feeling so very tired, broken and beaten…
ARISING TO YET ANOTHER NEW DAY THE LORD HAS MADE. Feeling relaxed and relieved. QUITE CERTAIN…that God’s plan for “ME”…is in “PERFECT” MOTION. Headed in the RIGHT direction. (Pppsssttt…”STILL” moving SLOW at a turtle’s pace!!!) UGH!!!
“IT IS WELL”…
My heart is smiling, folks, as the sun is rising in the East. Bringing with it a glimpse of “HOPE” (Heaven Over-Powering Earth) for this new day the Lord has made. And yes, Yes, YES…I WILL REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT!!! Psalm 118:24
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
P.H.P., folks. People Helping People…to survive “LIFE”.
Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day!!!
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.
