~The Fountain Of Life~
This past weekend, while in the potting shed; the sunlight was streaming through the doorway onto this painting. It seemed to be shining perfectly in line with the heavenly light that's painted just above Jesus and.... then continued "Son-shine" ..... to the bottom of the picture. I took several photos!!
As March 1st rolled in; I began searching for my new memory verse. Psalm 36:9 is the scripture I'm writing in my heart. If you're memorizing God's word as well, feel free to practice your verse in the comments!!!
Tonight was our ladies bible study here. We were missing one of our sisterchicks and hope she starts feeling better soon. -- Our lesson tonight covered Lot's wife, and Priscilla. So many things are still running through my mind. Our discussion was good and some things ... we still wonder about? But I come away tonight having learned something from both women, as well as their menfolk.
When God tells me to do something.... I don't want to hesitate like Lot did.
And I hope to remember on my own journey to not "look back." -- .....Why did "Mrs. Lot" look back? Disbelief? ........Curiosity?
Or maybe it was just pure disobedience... caring more about what she thought, wondered and wanted rather than what God said? I don't know for sure.
And then there is dear Priscilla: .....I'd love to be more like her. She did what she could alongside her husband to further the kingdom of God. She even risked her own life for another. She must have been very brave. Did she have her worries? Or was she fearless and bold!??
When I mentioned I'd like to be more like her, one of the Chicklets asked, "Well would you want to go to dangerous places and do what she did?"
I said "Yes," ... But I really meant... "Yes and No."
No, I wouldn't "want" to move away now, but I hope I would- if God asked me to. --Not everyone is called to be a traveling evangelist. But aren't we all commanded to share the good news? It seems that for the most of us: our mission fields are our own backyards, and communities. Our mission field is simply every soul who crosses our path.
Well, it's getting late and I have three new colors of paint to go splash in my soul journal before bed. "True blue, Citrus green, and fresh foliage!"
Sweet dreams dear friends,
