BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH JESUS CHRIST

BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH JESUS CHRIST

The Gentle Shepherd Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation]. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me[following Me as My disciple], for I am GENTLE and HUMBLE in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. (Matthew 11:28-29 Amplified Bible) How many of you have ever heard of Hermit Sheep? I learned about them from my husband as he shared his Sunday…

A MOTHER’S DAY PRAYER

A MOTHER’S DAY PRAYER

Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of mothers. They are like the touches and kisses from Your sweet lips. They are like the sweetness and gentleness of Your face, And the strength of Your Amazing Grace! Some of our mothers are gone home to be with You,  So there is an emptiness still left in our hearts only you can heal and fill. And in Your time and way I know You will. Some of our mothers were loving,…

BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH JESUS CHRIST

The Good Shepherd “Thy Rod of Correction and thy Staff of Protection, they both Comfort me. Psalms 23:4 (paraphrased)” One of my most favorite passages of scripture in the Bible is the 23 Psalm. Most of us can recite it by heart. I am so enamored with sheep; they just fascinate me! When our Lord described us like sheep who go astray, every man after his own way in the scriptures, He is exactly right! I remember being just like…

BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH ABBA

The Compassionate Father I don’t know about you but I longed for my father to love me, to cherish me, adore me, and think that I was one of the greatest joys of his life.  As a child, I longed to be held and carried securely in his loving arms. I longed for him to impart his wisdom, guidance, and share his experiences about life and the world around us. I also longed for a father who when I failed,…

CELEBRATING THE RESURRECTION OF OUR LORD AND OURS!

CELEBRATING THE RESURRECTION OF OUR LORD AND OURS!

WE ARE RISEN WITH HIM, OH YES WE ARE RISEN WITH HIM INDEED! In this glorious season of celebrating the crucifixion, death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord, I want to reflect on the reason for our Lord coming into the earth in the first place… it was for OUR SAKE. On Easter or Resurrection Sunday, the Orthodox, Catholic, and other liturgical churches greet each other with, “The Lord Is Risen” and the other person responds, “Yes, the Lord is…

BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH JESUS CHRIST The Restorer of Our Soul Part 2

BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH JESUS CHRIST The Restorer of Our Soul Part 2

In our last blog if you recall, Restore means, to bring back to its original purpose or plan, to set back in order or into its former condition, place, or position. It also means to repair or renovate like a building to its former condition.   Once there was an orphan who lived on the streets of Timbuktu, begging and scrounging for food every day to survive. Her parents died when she was five years old; she had no relatives…

BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH JESUS CHRIST The Restorer of Our Soul Part 1

After years of going to church, getting baptized, living like I pleased, trying to fix myself, and doing what I believed was God’s way. I was lost, broken, I had fallen into a dark place of sin and rebellion. But one day Jesus came to my rescue to save me and make me His own! I finally gave my heart to Jesus, on July 26, 1979. In 1982, after fighting with the enemy all of my life because of being…

BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH JESUS CHRIST Perfect Love

BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH JESUS CHRIST Perfect Love

1 John 4:17-18 Amplified Bible (AMP) 17In this [Union and Fellowship with Him], Love is Completed and Perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him]; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is NO FEAR IN LOVE [dread does not exist]. But PERFECT (complete, full-grown) LOVE (our Lord Jesus Christ) drives out fear, because fear involves [the expectation of divine] punishment, so the one who…

BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH JESUS CHRIST The Man of Sorrows and Grief

BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH JESUS CHRIST The Man of Sorrows and Grief

The past two weeks have been challenging. I have had two relatives die and another family member called me grieving over the loss of his son. Grieving over the loss of a loved one, friend, or even a pet can be devastating… to say the least. The pain reaches so deeply in our heart and soul, many of us shut down emotionally just to survive. Some of us hide in activities, work, movies, drugs, alcohol, and so many other things…

BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH JESUS CHRIST The Truth

BECOMING INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH JESUS CHRIST The Truth

“THE BIBLE IS WHERE I MEET YOU, MY HEART IS WHERE I GREET YOU” In a previous blog, we talked about the differences between the two words ‘Knowledge or Knowing’ in the Bible: Eido – to learn by using the senses, learn by observation, to interview, inspect, to study, process information. Ginosko – become known of, intimate, to understand, to experience or have an encounter with, heart to heart intimacy, like a husband and wife. In our previous blog, we also discovered…
