When you feel stuck it can be hard to write... and I've felt really stuck lately.
But just this morning while studying in the word and reading through a booklet a friend sent about righteousness... this scripture picture came to be. A family of bluejays left their nest in the pecan tree this week, and as I read the verse above; this photo came to mind.
Anyone else been stuck lately?
I've been stuck because I've been dwelling more on my feelings and some circumstances more than focusing on God first. Funny too because Deuteronomy 6:5 always reminds me to put God first... and love Him first with my everything. Yet ... sometimes my focus can go inward and all around ... more. Hard to admit; but it's true. Thank God His mercies are new every day... and He can redeem anything. Even a shabby olde heart... and even olde blogs too.
No wonder we're told to take up our cross daily and follow after Him.
Coz sometimes gals like me forget a little and follow one day but then let the very heart or mind get distracted by self, other people and messes the next. Anyone relate????
(About the photo... Mother Jay had 4 little ones. It was so much fun watching them grow and take that leap of faith
I gotta run to town today. Our baby boy's turning 27 tomorrow; and six days after that; our oldest baby boy turns 29! --So this ole Mommabird has some shoppin to do! They jumped out of our nest years ago but ... they'll always be my babies.
Have a great day everyone!
