2 Peter 3:1-13 Are We There Yet?

NO! God’s watch isn’t broken. It just runs on a different schedule than ours.

Peter is reminding his readers of the promises of God. AND reminding them that God holds His own calendar and timeline.

OH how MANY times I’ve said in my life that I know God’s timing is always right but “I wish He would WIND HIS WATCH!” This was my way of asking Him to hurry up and meet my requests/needs. So I can fully identify with what Peter is saying here.

Peter has called on his audience to remember the prophecies of old. To look at how God has fulfilled them. And to be CERTAIN that God is going to keep on filling the ones that have yet to be completed. God does NOTHING halfway. He doesn’t get up in the middle of the movie and walk out. He doesn’t get bored with His “toys” and abandon them. HE FINISHES WHAT HE BEGINS. EVERY TIME! Read more »

Taking a short vacation

I hope they really give these out like on TV!

I wanted to let those of you who look forward to reading my blog know that I’m taking a SHORT vacation. My middle son and his family are taking me and my husband to Hawaii for five days. I would take you along (my laptop) but I have enough to carry already. My husband is in a wheelchair full time now so one more bag on me is just too much. I look forward to resuming our time together next week.

Happy New Year and may God be with you throughout every moment of it! If You are His child, you can be assured of that!!!

Hebrews 12:3-17 Endure Discipline

He speaks to us right where we are at in His discipline/correction.

Those the Father loves, He also disciplines. This is our central message for today and always.

“In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood” (verse 4). We ALL face struggles with sin. And ALL God’s sons (and daughters) are disciplined. His discipline is always done in love and for our good. His discipline results in eternal life not death. Physical death might be the end result here on earth but that is NOT the end of your story.

God’s “discipline” doesn’t usually result in death of the body. For the prophets of old and the martyrs death was the end result of their walk with God but was NOT part of His discipline. Their deaths were a result of them refusing to deny God and man not allowing that decision. Men put them to death by Satan’s urging. God didn’t. What God gave them on the other side of that death though was worth it ALL. Read more »

One More Day

So sorry! I planned on adding new content today but so much had gone missing that it took me a LONG time to get things back to how they should be. Tomorrow y’all.

 

We Have ARRIVED!

Made it! Safe and sound! (Not promising sane though.)

Just wanted to throw up a quick note of thanks and an apology. I have been moving my site from one host to another and there were a LOT of issues with this move. We have FINALLY arrived at our new destination and I am allowed back into my site. We will resume our “walk with Jesus” tonight. Thank you for your patience and I look forward to many more enjoyable walks together!
