Breathing in Jesus!!!

Bible Verse for Today

Monday, April 21, 2014


As I was driving to meet my friend for lunch on Friday, 
I heard a message on the radio about all the terrible things that Jesus endured before being hung on the cruel cross.....
but then in three days, EVERYTHING changed!!!

That number THREE stuck in my mind as I drove on to my destination and the thought kinda hung around all weekend!  Pappy and I discussed the question as to why Jesus stayed in the grave for three days.  I even asked the question on Google to see what answers I could find.  I personally think that there were three days between the time He was crucified 'till He arose to simply fulfill prophecy.

But that number "3" still got me to thinking even further.

Sometimes, I have a tendency to "jump the gun".
In other words, I make hasty decisions without a lot of thought.....
let alone prayer.....
going into what I decide to do, or say!!!

I've found that waiting.....
3 minutes.....
3 hours.....
3 days.....
can make all the difference in the world!!!

Just look at the difference it made in our faith in a risen Savior!!!

Isaiah 30:21
Your own ears will hear Him.
    Right behind you a voice will say,
“This is the way you should go,”
    whether to the right or to the left.

HOPE y'all had an awesome Easter weekend.....
and you have a marvelous Monday!!!

He's Alive

As Christians, we celebrate today as Good Friday.....
the day that represents Jesus' death on the cruel cross!!!
But, Praise His Name, 
He didn't stay there!!!
On the third day, HE AROSE.....
and today, we serve a risen Savior Who is.....


I sincerely hope that each of you has a very blessed Easter weekend!!!

I'll see y'all back here on Monday......
so until then.....
let's just keep on.....

This Life I Live.....

By nature.....
well, by how God wired me.....
I'm a serious person.....
very much an introvert.....
trying my best not to be!!!

Hence, my blog.

It's my outlet....
my way of screaming to the world my love of GOD and some of my opinions and blessings and talents that only come from HIM!!!
(the blessings and talents, I mean)

 I want my blog to be first and foremost about GOD.....
but that includes this amazing life He's given me!!!

life is just a blog button copy

life is good button copy

life is uncertain button copy

Romans 1:12
 When we get together, 
I want to encourage you in your faith, 
but I also want to be encouraged by yours.

Ain't God good?
Oh, yes HE is!!!

Wednesday's Word - Life.....

With Easter weekend approaching,
I felt the need to talk about "life".
What do you think of when you hear that word?
I'm reminded that without Jesus' shed blood on the cross,
life wouldn't even be worth living!!!

Thank you, God,
 for sending Your One and Only Son to die for my sins!

What's good for the goose...... good for the gander!!

That old saying pretty much means that if it's good for one, 
then it's good for all.....
 but, I don't think that's the truth!

I Corinthians 10:23
“All things are lawful,” 
but not all things are helpful.
“All things are lawful,” 
but not all things build up.

I'm having to purge some things from my life that aren't "helpful" to me and certainly don't serve to "build up".....
instead, they tear me down.....
and cause me to have a judgmental attitude. 
These things can be completely innocent and okay for others.....
with my personality.....
and that human instinct for nosiness.....
they only serve to be a big hindrance for me!
And, do you know how difficult it is to be totally honest about this?
But, I feel God is calling me to put it all out there.....
 be transparent about my faults!

What about you?
Is God doing a work in your heart about something that is completely "lawful".....
yet, for you.....
only serves as a distraction, or a hindrance?

Hope you have a terrific Tuesday, Sweet Reader!!!

Breathing in Jesus,


Edited to add:
After I published this post,
 (Tuesday Morning, 4-15-14)
I saw this in an e-mail from K-Love.....

Romans 12:2
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, 
but let God transform you into a new person 
by changing the way you think. 
Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, 
which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Thanking God for His confirmations!

Ain't it good..... be alive?!?

I didn't go to church yesterday.
I felt God speaking to my heart to spend the morning with my Mom.
I didn't sleep much Saturday night 'cause I couldn't get her off my mind.
Pappy got dressed for church and dropped me off at Mom's on his way.
As soon as we pulled into the driveway,
I spotted a cardinal sitting underneath her hydrangea bush in the front yard.....
and immediately knew I had made the right decision to spend time with Mom
I was there for about three wonderful hours with her and my brother!!!
At one point, I took a walk down into the field toward the woods.
It brought back such sweet memories of when I was a kid and would play in the woods all day long with my cousins who lived next door.  

Yesterday was an awesome, beautiful day.....
in more ways than just the weather!!!
Mom told me how much she enjoyed me spending the morning with her!

It's wonderful to be alive....
and to know that God has EVERYTHING under control!!!

SONday Morning Song - I Can Only Imagine.....

This has been a favorite of mine probably since the first time I heard it.
For quite some time, I used it as the ring tone on my phone!!!

Today would have been my Daddy's 86th birthday and I truly can only imagine the celebration he's having with Jesus!!

Hope y'all have an awesome SONday worshiping the Lord!!!

Breathing in Jesus,
