"To rob God of nothing; to refuse Him nothing; to require of Him nothing; this is great perfection." Jeanne Guyon
Yesterday, I met with a sister I love. I asked her as I often ask those I care about, "what is God saying to you in this season?" She made me answer first. I shared that God is calling me back to the basics of my spiritual walk. Before the stuff, before the distractions [were allowed to be distractions] and before the "noise" of my current life season. He's beckoning me back.
In the end all that matters is our relationship to Jesus Christ. Nothing else really matters, ya know? My prayer requests don't matter, my personal "little" ambitions are of little significance. My earthly positions are trash in comparison to the love, fellowship and will of my Savior.
The basics....just He and I. Like worship with no music.

|Wrong life seasons just don't fit.|

"But now, this is what the Lord says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze."

I love Facebook! It offers a wonderful opportunity to connect with friends, see what's new in their lives and offer encouragement when they need it.
Well, after one of my usual visits, I felt the "inclination" to take a break from my favorite social media outlet. The inclination was actually from that still, small voice of which I am very familiar. That voice deep in my spirit.
Our church just came out of a season of consecration and revival. During the season of fasting, I heard God's voice so much clearer than I had in days prior. Without the dulling sound of television, radio and the noise of everyday life, the Father's directives were clear as crystal. His Words jumped from pages of the Bible and I was much more connected than I am in my usual, run-of the-mill daily busyness.
So, when I felt the inclination to discontinue my personal Facebook for a while, I know He was at the heart of the urge and I am committed to obedience.
Now, is Facebook bad? No, of course not. I think this is more about obedience than it is about Facebook. So for now, farewell, FB friends. I would say I am going to miss you, but I think my time will be spent in a way that will render me a much better "friend" to you in real life.
So, bye, bye...or should I say "baaaa baaaaa"? Sorry, I couldn't resist.:)

As I pulled the cushions from the living room sofa I saw a debit card that looked a lot like the one I LOST LAST YEAR. It was the one I lost last year. Me!
My face felt hot with embarrassment.
It's so easy to forget our own shortcomings and "lecture" others on theirs. My lesson today (and consequently yours) is to remember to bear compassion, mercy and kindness when folks blunder. We know to do it, but often forget, especially when the "folks" are our kids.
The truth of the matter is we are often very guilty of many of the same sins in which we judge. The years may have dulled our memories or we just didn't get caught with the consequences. As my husband says there are two types of folks - the caught and the uncaught. Often our "uncaughtness" makes us forgetful.
Either way, grace and mercy are always the best responses. It is then we look the most like our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen?
I owe my boy an apology.
