What a Time To Be Alive!

                         Whatever He tells you, do it."   --- John 2:5


You know how, in 2020, we saw happenings we'd never before witnessed? Well, hang on. New, even wilder things are racing toward us in the next few days.

My advice? Find ways to stay excited about what God is boldly going to display before our eyes.

And here's something to help us in our waiting. Since it's another blog post, I'll not write a complete one here today.

Rather, I'll just add: these next days? Seek God with all your heart. Ask Him for specific ways to keep your heart close to a wonderful expectancy and far from worry, fear and dread.

Hang in there--in Him we can do this, with joy, even!

"For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. ..."   ---Romans 8:39

" ... be busy at home, be kind..." ---Titus 2:5

"Don't worry, be happy."  ---copied


Oh, and for those Christians pulling for the God-hating group to win this current battle? I feel sorry for you.

"Despite all that's going on now, God is moving... He is moving in unusual ways and this is the time we need to be sensitive to unusual manifestations of God."   --- Dr. Kynan Bridges


Here's a Kindle book I enjoy dusting off each January. It contains simple ways to declutter and remain organized the rest of the year.


Oh, and as I said at Facebook--

Coming soon to a nation near you:


"For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." ... Matthew 6:14,15

Amen! I’ve been seeing some very interesting posts and videos about things that are going on. I sure wish I knew whether they’re true or not. Wishing you a wonderful Monday. Blessings, Betsy

Thank you for this!

The closing verse about forgiveness may the most important here. There is going to be much forgiving to do.

Sandi said...

Also, much forgiving to receive!

I so agree with the words of Mario Murillo. Each of us is responsible for what we say and do. Each of us has 24 hours a day to decide how we will live. We can make a positive difference, especially with our families and friends, when we do what is right.

Betsy--I believe God is faithful to lead us in the way we should go and that includes leading us to the folks He wants to speak through. Let Him lead you via His peace!

Sandi--it's so nice to meet you! And thanks for sharing what you said about forgiveness, especially the part about there being much upcoming forgiveness to receive. I'd not thought of it that way before!

Pam--thanks for letting me know you read the Mario Murillo blog post! Wasn't it so inspiring and convicting? Yikes. :)

Thanks so much, Everyone! Blessings, Debra
