I am taking a writing sabbatical. It’s transitioning into a ‘against-my-will-don’t-make-me-do-it-social-media-once-a-day-check.’ It won’t be long, because this is part of my ministry, but I need to be cognizant of what’s in front of me and how I’m being guided. Thanks for being a part of The Pieces Blog.
Today, I found a two sided piece of paper; it fluttered from somewhere and landed behind my desk. There are a few scribblings and a date of 12/4/2013.
These exact kind of notes were the reason behind “The Pieces” book. I wanted to share what God had shown me, inspired revelations that carried me from bad and sorrowful moments in time, to joy filled and peaceful days.
A few of my ramblings:
2 Peter 3:18 SPIRITUAL GROWTH: Read scripture, apply the truth. Admit and assume responsibility for failure. Commit to change.
Philippians: Joy, is a calm delight from God. The worldview of joy is “happiness is based on what happens,” but joy, in reality – is the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
Paul was in jail during this time, he remembers people in his prayers; he thanks God for his situation, he encourages others.
Ephesians 2:15 (my take): It’s a harsh world for those who are not believers in Christ. I was under a terrible impression or just didn’t want to see – that the most noble and good people are still not of God. They are still on the wrong side. It’s not my place to judge, but do I have responsibility of those I love to save their soul? You bet!
