My fellow blogger at “1Pursuit” gives insights to the walk we should have with God. I invite you to let this post deepen your Faith. Chew the cud over this quote:
“Jesus stated that He is the way, the truth, and the life. He did not state that He knew the way or would tell us the way. Neither did He state that He came to teach truth to us so we can teach others. He did not state that He came to show us how to live life.
the Desire to meet with God in prayer listening allowing Him to speak is natural like a duck’s attraction to water it should be instinct Desire fulfilling itself whether or not to enter the water is of no concern but deciding how to get to the water and jump in
I did not realize their nest was less than 10 feet from the backdoor! until yesterday. Although I knew their nest was nearby I did not attempt to locate it. The inside of the nest was hardly big enough to hold the three chicks. Their flight feathers were developing nicely. It would not be long until their first flight. It is happening now. On of the three nestlings has left, one is sitting on a branch just upwards and left of the nest (see picture, and the third was seen just awhile ago in the nest, but could be out in the greater world by now; if not, it is hunkered down out of sight. The female has yellow feathers distinguishing it from the orange of the male. -Jeff
Remember How Much Jesus Loves You Stay aware of God’s Love for you. God’s Love is unconditional. You can mess up and God is still there. Jesus continues to love. The Spirit speaks. You can live at a Spiritual Level of 10% — God loves and supports you. 30 or 40% — God cares for you. 60%, 80%, 90% — God is there. God cares for you.
Thankful in the Moment Friends, be present in your things you a thankful for. During this pandemic we have lost a lot, and I am not saying to give thanks for the loss and hurt, but as the pang is upon you, mindfully carry what you are thankful for. Have it at the ready. For whether you hurt (or not) you will find comfort and strength. For God gives good things, encouraging and strengthening us in many ways. My prayers are with you. -Jeff
Money: 1 Timothy 6:10 “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” 1 Timothy 6:10 NIV A verse often altered 3-ways: first, money is framed as the cause of all evil. Certainly evil and money are often yolked together for reasons of power, greed, and control. But money, a system of exchange for goods, knowledge, or services, is a tool to manage trade — and is not the foundation of all evil. Secondly, the covetous nature of loving money is simply overlooked, omitted, passed over. Loving money, or rather “craving” money becomes a means without God’s eternal plan in mind, placing money above allegiance to and fondness for God. Also, the trailing sentence is left out, imperceptibly, negating its ability to change people who need to grasp its warning. God wants us to be conscious of, in communication with, and dependent upon Him at all times. Beloved, I combine 1 Timothy 6:10 with Chapter 6 of Matthew, especially verses 31-33. You are cared for! -Jeff
