IT IS WELL…

with my soul, folks.  DESPITE my inappropriate “VENTING”…in “THE SAFETY ZONE,” …to and “at” my friend, Nena.  Yep, the ONE & ONLY, Nena.  Who… when our names are combined “TOGETHER”…???…???…???… we become…”JINA”.  JILL + NENA = “JI”LL + NE“NA” =  JI + NA = “JINA”!!!

And BOY…did I “VENT” to, or “AT” Nena this past Tuesday.  CERTAIN my words of displeasure would get back to their intended recipient(s).  AND THEY SURE DID, folks, as intended.  AND I felt HORRIBLE!!!  Poor Nena had NOTHING to do with ANYTHING…yet she endured the tongue-lashing I gave her and “SHARED” it appropriately.  :/  UGH.  WOULDN’T YA KNOW IT…

My daily devotional and scripture reading reminded me…FIRST THING…on Wed. am. to be trusting and thankful.  :/  To avoid criticizing and complaining.  :/  :/  –> 🙁  🙁   OUCH!!!  AND I KNEW IT.  Right Then.  RIGHT THERE…that I’d be “EATING CROW” as soon as I arrived to work that a.m.!!!  AND BOY…DID I EAT PLENTY, folks!!!  AS INDICATED!!!   

Thank-You, Jesus!!!  IT IS WELL.   A-N-D…   “TEAM BLUE…???…???…???…MADE IT THROUGH… yet ANOTHER STORM at “THE CREEK” (MCNRC:  Moultrie Creek Nursing & Rehab. Center)!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

“HEALING COLLAPSED HEARTS”…

The gist of the message was how we, as believers, can “WRITE,” or IMPRINT on the hearts of ALL those lives we are blessed to touch…EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!  IN A LOVING, ENCOURAGING, FORGIVING and POSITIVE MANNER.  (Pppsssttt…NO “NEGATIVITY” ALLOWED, folks.I love it!

Sorry.  But “LIFE IS DIFFICULT,” folks.  For Everybody.  EVERYWHERE.  WOULDN’T IT BE NICE…???…???…???…if we could “HELP” each other along our “JOURNEYS” through “LIFE” from “HERE” to “THERE”???…???…???… Just sayin’…or askin’.  😉

“JESUS IS THE WAY.”    Romans 2:16

NOW LET US GO…GO OUT AND MAKE DISCIPLES, folks, by writing on the tablets of others’ hearts via our thoughts, words and actions.  SHARE JESUS CHRIST, OUR LORE AND SAVIOR…with ALL those lives we are blessed to touch.  EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!  YEEHAW!!!  And ANOTHER song is blaring LOUDLY in Jill-ville, folks.

“CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE TONIGHT”…???…???…???
“It is where we are”…  from Disney’s movie, “The Lion King.”  Hhhmmm…my heart is smiling, folks,  as I  end with Pastor Walter’s last words at church Sat. Eve, 2/17/18:  “GOD IS LOVE,” folks.  AMEN.

GETTING TO KNOW…

 “ME”.  Getting to know ALL about “ME”.  😮  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

The negative “CJ,” or Crazy Jill, is GONE, folks.  Along with Flighty Jill, as well.  Yep, I bid farewell to my ole’ “CRAZY” SELF on 1/2/18…in a blog post titled, “BYE-BYE, CRAZY-JILL”.  I really meant it.  And it really, Really, REALLY worked, folks.  I am a different “ME”… YET AGAIN!!!   Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior.  “The old life is gone:  a new life has begun.”
2 Corinthians 5:17
THANK-YOU, JESUS!!! 

Yep, I had to let go of my crutches:  Crazy Jill (CJ) and Flighty JillHAD TO GO!!!  The self-bashing…???…???…???…became my truth and  “I”…???…???…???…actually became the crazy and flighty person I joked about being. 10-FOLD!!! To the point of being embarrassed of  my-crazy-flighty-“SELF”.  OUCH!!!  :/ 

I am certain it was God who shouted “STOP!!!”[self-bashing] “In the name of Love!!!”  😉  And I STOPPED, folks.  IMMEDIATELY.  Right Then.  RIGHT THERE… with the publication of that blog post, “BYE-BYE, CRAZY JILL” on 1/2/18.  AMEN.  And THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!

“I”…???…???…???…am a DIFFERENT person yet AGAIN, folks!!!  HE…???…???…???…is STILL changing “ME”…from the INSIDE-OUT!!!  And…???…???…???… I really, Really, REALLY like the NEW  CARING, COOL, CALM & COLLECTED person I PROCLAIM my“SELF” to be… TODAY!!!  (Thanks to some “HELP” from my friends at “The Creek,” MCNRC🙂

JESUS SAVES…

NOT man.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

DEATH…is ALL around us, folks.  It occurs right here, Over There AND EVERY-other-WHERE here on earth.  During school, wars, accidents, illnesses, etc. .  While sleeping, walking, driving, swimming, eating, etc.  DEATH…can be slow, quick.  Painful, painless.  Expected, Unexpected, etc., Etc., ETC.  DEATH IS EVERYWHERE.   

THE ENEMY IS SATAN, folks.  NOT man.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

STOP blaming each other.  Satan blames.  Jesus loves.  ALL humans are sinners.  Does placing blame on someone else make us feel less responsible???  And what are we, ourselves, doing to “HELP” the situations we ALL face EACH & EVERY day???  At school???  On the job???  In the store, etc.???  At home???  On-line???  In “LIFE”???

The recent school shooting here in FL has “PLAYERS” adding fuel to the “BLAME GAME”… pointing digit #2 towards others as digits #3-5 ALL point RIGHT back at each individual player.  “THINK ABOUT IT!!!  (a tribute to my brother, Bob.  R.I.P.)

Where were the parents???;   Teachers and fellow students suspected trouble??? ;  Internet users could “see” and read about his troubles on the net???;  Eeeccckkk!!!  He had a gun!!!  Who, what, when where, why, and how???  There should be MORE gun laws!!!  LESS gun laws!!!;  SomeBODY, in fact, LOTS of BODIES knew he was “TROUBLED” yet he STILL slipped through the cracksand the “BLAME GAME” goes on, And On, AND ON…  🙁

“STOP!!!  In the name of LOVE,” or God.  ( Eeeccckkk!!!  DISTRACTION ALERT!!!  I am now STUCK here in “JILL’S WORLD” singing to that catchy Supremes’ tune from the 60’s.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  “STOP!!!  In the name of [God]…”  😉  And I’m soundin’ pretty good too!!!  Just sayin’.  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!)  😉  😉

STOP…looking for fellow TEAMMATES to blame for evil actions here on earth.  SATAN is to blame for ALL evil…EVEN that which is disguised as LOVE, my friends.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Can “WE” identify the hate or anger we may harbor that is craftily designed from the LOVE of something or someone else???  ALL negatives are Satan-born and driven, folks.  Not Godly.

STOP… blaming others.  And START… loving others…by sharing The Word.  Be a disciple who makes a disciple.  JESUS SAVES.  NOT man.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY DON’T KNOW, folks!!!  Please…”CARE ENOUGH TO SHARE” Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior with those lives you are blessed to touch.  EVERY-SINGLE-DAY!!! 

PLANT SEEDS OF FAITH.  NOT GUILT.

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

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People…to survive “LIFE”.

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD…NOT MAN!!!  AMEN.

HOLY SPIRIT, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE

Thank-You, Jesus, for yet ANOTHER new day.
I will seek to rejoice and be glad in it…in Your perfect way.

Come what may, I stand ready to face this day.
With Jesus right here guiding my every step of the way.

HELP me, Lord, turn away from the darkness of this day.
Replacing it with Your light and love, oh HELP me, Lord, this I pray.

It is time for me to head out the door.
To face ALL the negative Satan has in store.

I will keep You close in my heart, mind and soul.
Seeking Your will, Father, to fill my heart’s empty hole.

The smile I now feel brings Your light to my face.
Filled with a sense of Your peace and AMAZING GRACE.

Let’s go, my friend, and start this day.
Sharing love, peace and kindness to fellow TEAMMATES along the way.

HAPPY MONDAY, folks!!!

THE STINK IN OUR SOULS

EEEWWW…YUCK!!!  “WE…???…???…???…have a STINK in our souls,” folks.  Pastor Walter said so!!!  OUCH!!!  That one stung a bit, AFTER I stopped chuckling enough to realize that “WE”…???…???…???… also included “ME”!!!  :/  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

SUNDAY, 2/4/18.  The sermon at ABC (Anastasia Baptist Church) was regarding our “Collapsed Judgement: Notorious Bad Calls on the Field” [of LIFE].  I absolutely love, Love, LOVED how that day’s specific message blended “LIFE” so perfectly with the Super Bowl game to be played later that very same day between the Patriots and Eagles.  POWERFUL STUFF, folks.  EXCELLENT SERMON, Pastor Walter!!!

“WE HAVE COLLAPSED JUDGMENT,” folks, as we are quick to judge others harshly based on personal opinions rather than evaluating ourselves.  Referee your own “LIFE”…NOT others’!!!
Romans 2:1; Matthew 7:1-2

“WE HAVE COLLAPSED JUDGMENT,” folks, by trampling God’s favor with a lack of humble remorse.
Romans 2:4; Matthew 6:24; 1 Samuel 12

“WE HAVE COLLAPSED JUDGMENT,” folks, by stubbornly ignoring God’s righteous judgment.
Romans 2:5

“WE HAVE COLLAPSED JUDGMENT,” folks, by NOT measuring FAITH in units of ACTION.  “WORKS MATTER!!!”
Romans 2:6; James 2:18

*Seek to “HELP” fellow TEAMMATES along their “JOURNEYS” from “HERE” to “THERE” in HIS love and light.  NOT in Satan’s anger/hate and darkness.

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

SOARING…

with the EAGLES!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

My heart is so, So, SO happy.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW, folks, as I enjoy the Philadelphia Eagles’ miraculous SUPERBOWL 2018 VICTORY.  After their win, both the Eagles coach AND quarterback gave glory to God for their unlikely victory against the tried and tested NE Patriots.  BAM!!!

I KNEWRight Then. RIGHT THERE…that  a beautiful story was unfolding…in FULL view of the entire country, “TEAM USA”.  AMAZING GRACE…a beautiful story was unfolding in FULL view of  “TEAM WORLD”!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.  Yep, BOTH the QB and the coach of this year’s AMAZING  Superbowl champs gave credit for their victory to God on national television!!! Right Then.  RIGHT THERE.  AFTER THE GAME…for ALL to hear.

I later learned of the QB’s wrist band, stating “WWJD”.  He, reportedly wore that bracelet during the entire game!!!  WWJD…What Would Jesus Do???  SHUT-UP!!!  “W.W.J.D.”…???…???…???…is one of numberoneteam.net’s favorite phrases.  BAM!!!

Yep, I AM NOW ON A MISSION, folks.  To find and purchase my“SELF” a W.W.J.D. wrist band/bracelet.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  A representation of the bond I share with the “UNDERDOGS” of the 2018 SUPERBOWL. Our bond with Christ.  AMEN.

PTL:  Praise The Lord!!!  THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Eeeccckkk!!!  I JUST realized, THIS-VERY-MOMENT, that my patience, or tolerance for complainers has GREATLY improved over the past year-or-so!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  The Lord is changing “ME”…from the inside -> out!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

OUCH!!!!!!  I can distinctly remember having a very, Very, VERY low-tolerance for “COMPLAINERS” in my recent past, folks.  In fact, I am CERTAIN there are numerous posts that touch upon my so-called “INTOLERANCE” back in the archives of this blog…”SOMEWHERE”…OUT THERE…in high-tech., Cyber-ville  :/  (Pppsssttt…I get LOST there…OFTEN.)  :/  :/

DOORS WERE OPENED…for “ME”.  THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!  And I could NOT run through them fast enough, folks!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  

YEP…I SAW THE LIGHT!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  The light that saved my  job, my sanity, my marriage, etc., by allowing a shift in my work-schedule from Mon.- Fri. to Sat. – Wed.  back in Oct., 2016, thereby reducing my time around …???…???…???…”THE COMPLAINERS”.   THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!

And now???…???…???… when I find my“SELF” in times of trouble,   😉 (Yep, I’m singin’ that Beatles’ tune.  And soundin’ pretty good, too!!!) or around complainers at work, I notice a peace and calmness in “ME”.  Seeking His guidance, or words of wisdom, that will show me the way to “LOVE” them (COMPLAINERS) through their darkness on into His light.  AMEN.  And PTL.  Praise The Lord!!!

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