Blessed

Nothing nor any person could have rescued my day today, except Jesus. Thankfully, Jesus came in the form of a friend, Marie. Marie lived Luke 10:27 today; she loved 'her neighbor' as herself. I was not able to imagine any kind of resolution to today's events except to leave the building and work from home. Instead, she listened, offered solid, valid advice, and best of all? prayed with me. And you know? Jesus answered our prayers. His hands were all over the rest of the day. I even forgot about today's mishaps until much later at home. :) Thank you, Jesus, for loving me so much that you orchestrate support, just when I need it most, even in the tiniest details and miniscule issues of my life.

Straight Driving

When I was first learning to drive I would travel all over my lane from left to right yellow line to curb. I was told by a friend that it was easier to stay in my lane if I changed my focus. I was looking right in front of the car instead of down the road where I was going. By focusing down the road ahead of me instead of right in front of me judging my every action and its result: it smoothed out the drive and my path straightened out .

Day 9 of 90 Days with Jesus (Beth Moore study)

Ok, so 90 days with Jesus... today's question after reading about how Mary & Joseph took baby Jesus to the temple for circumcision, redemption & purification -- What is the difference between being obedient to custom - in merely being traditional - and being faithful to do what God has commanded?

Here's my thought - but I want to hear yours... so, comment away!
I think that being obedient to a custom is just because you feel obligated; being faithful to do what God's commanded (tithe (first fruits), fellowship with other believers, love others more than yourself, continue in discipleship, etc.), because we LOVE Him - and moreover, because He loved us first and most.

Thoughts??
