The Journey's Weekly Check-Up #3

These three always make me smile:





Share something that made you think:

This week, I was reading John 14:23 and saw something I’d never considered before:

Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. John 14:23 NKJV

Somehow, I’d never considered before that BOTH the Father and the Son come to live in me. I know when I repent and accept God’s gift of grace, I received the Holy Spirit as a seal over my life. (See Ephesians 1:13).

What this tells me is this: As I love and obey Him, I receive all of who God is – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!

So … shouldn’t I give Him all of who I am?

Share a win from this week:

At my job, I managed to get 5 days of work done in 3; got everything prepared for my fill-in secretary to do while I’m off this week, got all 3 of my blog posts for the week published, AND cooked Thanksgiving Dinner in a timely manner.  I AM WOMAN; HEAR ME ROAR!

Share a song or a scripture that ministered to you

A lot of thoughts come to me while listening to sermons. Sunday, Pastor was talking about pursuing our passion. He made a lot of good points. The song, My Jesus I Love Thee, came to me. I love the phrase, “I know thou art mine.” It’s a very old hymn written in 1864 by William R. Featherstone; but it still speaks to us today. Here is my favorite verse of the song:

I love Thee because Thou hast first loved me,
And purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree;
I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus 'tis now.

My passion is to pursue Jesus with all my heart.

Here is an amazing arrangement of the song:

Well this post did inspire me. Love your kitchen servants, smile. Grandkids really do put smiles on your faces. It's amazing how the Word can never be exhausted and how we can see something we didn't see before. Happy last week of November to you!
