Next on the Journey

Dear Readers, I wanted to pop in and let you know I’m recovering well from my recent bout of COVID. As I wrote in my last post, I’m taking some time off to mend and fill my spiritual tank. I did manage to finally finish my series at Jerralea.comA Rich and Satisfying Life, with my 28th post, A Recap of a Rich and Satisfying Life, but since then, my keyboard has remained silent. I’m not ready to post regularly again yet; but I do want to let you know of my plans for November posting.

Most years, I like to do a series of posts on the Journey during November about thankfulness. I call them Praise Posts, giving God glory about the little blessings in my life. I want my praises to be relatable, offering praise for things almost anyone can find if they search.

For example, the blessings of our five senses cannot be over-emphasized. The wonder of eyesight, the gift of touch, the soul-filling taste of good food, whispers of love from family and friends, the fragrance of rain-washed earth and budding flowers are all blessings filling our lives with joy. We should never tire of praising our Creator for them.

And of course, offering praise for the people in our lives more than the possessions we own, ought to be on our lips on the daily. (Although, I must say I am also thankful for my home, my car, my leopard-print possessions, etc. I am grateful God provided them for my needs and comfort.)

However, in the midst of the crazy world we live, I’m more grateful than ever for the Word of God. Scripture gives me a firm foundation to stand upon when everything else seems shaky. It seems each day I crave His Word even more, and it speaks to me even more plainly than I've experienced in the past.

With that in mind, I’ve decided to make this year’s Praise Posts all about scripture. Beginning November 14 and running through November 24, I am planning to pick out 10 scriptures that meant the most to me in 2022 and do a Praise Post each day on one of them. I hope you’ll join me each day by posting one of your favorite scriptures in the comment section.

Anytime scripture is released into the world, whether by writing on a page or screen, or spoken, it accomplishes something. It never returns void.

I’m excited to see what the Lord will do. See you November 14th!

    I look forward to reading them, Jerralea.

  2. Jerralea, I'm so sorry to hear that covid has hit you ... that you've done such beautiful writing in the middle of it is surely grace and strength. Rest well, friend ...

  3. I hope you're continuing to recover well from covid, Jerralea. Whenever I heal from another bout of illness, gratefulness comes naturally!


Thank you for commenting! I consider each comment a gift.
