Have a Little Talk With Jesus

 

“Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray” – Psalm 5:2.

Peach here, Y’all! 2018. 2018 is some kind of amazing year already. So much happening, developing, growing, moving, changing, advancing! And through it all I need the wisdom of the Lord. I need my Jesus. I need to talk to Him and I need to hear from Him. I need to carry my cares to Him, ask for His strength, favor and intervention and provision! I give Him my troubles, and my gratitude, my loved ones, my friends, our country, and He gives me comfort, wisdom, joy, strength and answers!! He doesn’t need fancy words. Or some form in legalese in triplicate. Just respectful, authenticity. Based in faith in the goodness of His character and love for you. I use His Word to reframe my thinking and help me know Him bettter, and that fuels my prayer. Inspires me. Erases some of the world and it’s thinking out of me.

As I mentioned above 2018 is moving fast, and I thought at the end of last week that I rely so much on the Lord, and He is so MORE than faithful, in abundance even, is He faithful. And it made me sad to think there are those who do not know to turn to Him, do not choose to take their cares to Him. How do people make it through life without that grace, that mercy, that comfort and wisdom?

How about you? Well, as for me,  it’s time again for me to have a little talk with Jesus! I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic.

Priorities

Peach says: There comes a certain time where we realize the brevity of life, the fragility of it, the prescious gift that it is. We become aware of the fact the we only have a certain number of Christmases or 4th of July Independence Day celebrations. We begin to make choices on a daily basis, to hopefully, with the Grace of God and the Holy Spirit guiding us, make choices that will help us make the most constructive impact for our loved ones, our community, the Kingdom of God, and the world. Use that extra few hours to go visit your parents, enjoy old memories, listen to their wisdom. Use that afternoon to help your sibling, or your Uncle. Take that long put off anniversary trip! Go to church, you can sleep any time! Watch TV? Or write? Read FB or read your Bible? Or your new Jentzen Franklin book? Or how about, do you once again pick up that other shift at work? Maybe that’s right. Or instead do you take that day with your spouse and go take pictures, and drop in on your son who lives out of town, and go to dinner? You only have so many days. Use them to do things that last. To know the Lord more, to love on others, to serve, to build.

A major verse in our life this year is from Psalm 90:12 — “12 So teach us to number our days, that we may get us a heart of wisdom”. To number as used in the verse means to set, to assign, to appoint, to tell. In other words, we have a role to play, God given authority to purposefully set, assign, appoint, to tell (declare) what our given days shall prioritize, according to His wisdom at work in us! So, go! Live, love, serve, have faith! Believe! He is good! Taste and see His mercy endures forever!

Pie

Batman says:

Yep, just what it sounds like…Pie, brings up memories of yummy blueberry, raspberry, lemon meringue, peach (sorry honey), apple, key lime, chocolate and on and on.

I love pie of all shapes and sizes and tastes, crumbly crust, chewy crust, burnt crust I don’t care just slice it up and give me a piece.

Nothing profound in this post, no great words of wisdom, just PIE

Establish the Work of Our Hands

Good Monday Morning!! Peach here! Hope this morning finds you in hope and great expectations! I like to start the week with a focus of good expectation, from the goodness of our God, and with that; a prayer and declaration, based on His Word, for myself and my loved 301AAFD9-1B29-4954-BB64-684A4B189765ones. Thought I’d share this with you: “Let Your work [the signs of Your power] be revealed to Your servants, and Your [glorious] majesty to their children.
And let the beauty and delightfulness and favor of the Lord our God be upon us; confirm and establish the work of our hands—yes, the work of our hands, confirm and establish it.” – Psalm 90:16-17

1 + 1 = 1

E7A607BB-6B29-4014-A425-26ED8E54BD1ASays Peach: Nope! That’s not Common Core!! It’s the beautiful mystery of the mathematic principal of marriage!! One of the reasons we are doing this blog, is we have been extremely blessed to enjoy a whole lot of love, life and years together. Wouldn’t have been possible without Jesus. Plain and simple and no apologies for saying so.  And in a world where marriage is becoming increasingly rare and increasingly put off until later, we hope to occasionally throw out some insight on the benefits of sticking together, being forgiving, being kind to each other, having each other’s backs, being creative at loving and serving one another, being each other’s advocate, cheer leader, comic support! Marriage will never not be a sacred gift from God, to help us and equip us to to do this thing called life!! “Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor.” – Ecclesiastes 4:9
