Construction Site

So much in this posting I could repeat just to run it all through my mind as it connected in my heart and soul very clearly resonating personal experiences with God’s Truth and handiwork in my life!

“Some of Christ’s followers have suffered greatly. Yet, they go on to encourage others. They have joy and peace even in the midst of walking through the valley of the shadow of death How? Because with God, there is a peace that surpasses all understanding. He’s not just a fleeting hope. He is the anchor who holds us together. He genuinely loves us, comforts us, and directs our paths, which is leading straight to everlasting joy with Him one day soon!”

This is one of many points or dots to connect in our learning and understanding God’s presence and will for each of us! You’re pointing to these words today embraced as being God’s absolute presence in our lives as I’ve witnessed on many occasions and that He is always there to comfort, teach and lead us unto paths of righteousness in Jesus’s name.

Yesterday as I wrote another essay I needed a photo about the Apostles and there was a photo with text that immediately caught my attention even though it wasn’t what I thought I needed at that moment, but still before I proceeded in my search I made note of this particular photo and saved it. Then today I remembered it and wanted to consider it again as to its true meaning and as I did, I looked to see what email had just appeared for my Word Press notifications; and your new posting was right there!

This is a beautiful analogy and explanation of God working in our lives as we are unfinished works or “Under Construction” being shaped as scripture tells us by the “Master Potter” as in Isaiah 64:8 “But now, O LORD, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You are the potter; we are all the work of Your hand.” So you mention this and how important it is that we Trust in the Lord with all of our heart! So I see such divine connection to all of this as I point to this! Pointing again to these specific words of great insight and purpose in our lives; and I dwell on them before I reflect and explain their significance today!

“Some of Christ’s followers have suffered greatly. Yet, they go on to encourage others. They have joy and peace even in the midst of walking through the valley of the shadow of death How? Because with God, there is a peace that surpasses all understanding. He’s not just a fleeting hope. He is the anchor who holds us together. He genuinely loves us, comforts us, and directs our paths, which is leading straight to everlasting joy with Him one day soon!”

Then there is this which has to be my all-time favorite Psalm that I keep a file on for quick reference.

Psalm 23: The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
So I see how many dots or perhaps points of God’s light and truth are being brought together here in this personal and most fulfilling way!

This all is summed up or connected in such a precious glorifying way to God, by this writing of Saint Teresa of Avila here in these words that appeared to me yesterday as too important to pass by, but I didn’t know how they would connect as they do today; in such an important obvious way.

“We always find that those who walked closest to Christ were those who had to bear the greatest trials.” ~ Teresa of Avila

“Christ has no body now but mine. He prays in me, works in me, looks through my eyes, speaks through my words, works through my hands, walks with my feet and loves with my heart.” ~ Teresa of Avila

All the Glory and Honor is Yours Lord! Amen.

Brother in Christ Jesus,

I leave this list of previously posted essays in which I do believe that some of the words and thoughts contained in them were derived during moments and times of divine inspiration and guidance which will connect in these newer essays and the latter one listed which I wrote yesterday! Amen.

Jackie's Journaling Journey

The other night I had a dream about a Construction site with houses in the process of being built. You know, half done. In the dream, my landlord was frustrated because he had to stop building temporarily. When I walked into this one house, I started to throw soft squishy balls into each room. Don’t ask.

After throwing them, I then found myself mopping the kitchen (nice beige-colored tiles) while the Landlord was watching. He was then very pleased that he was able to continue building.

My happy place

I’m sitting at my Kitchen table typing on my new laptop, a gift from my Husband. I’m very grateful because I’ve been writing all this time using my phone and my eyes are not cooperating as well anymore!

There are times when I wonder if I am getting in the way of God completing the process of growth in…
