August 11
Good morning all.  Thank you, Whitney, for coming to my rescue and getting my computer working!
In the way of your testimonies I delight as much as in all riches.  Psalm 119:14 ESV
1 Kings 6 

As we walk in the ways of the Lord, He establishes His Word with us.  This is such a powerful statement from our God as His Word for those who walk with Him is the Blessing as given to Abraham which is blessing upon blessing in spirit, soul and body!  To build something correctly and with perfection takes time.  I must allow the Master Builder to build me while being patient.  He is the Potter and I am the clay and the Potter’s desire is to build a perfected vessel.  
Jeremiah 32
It is good to KNOW that when the Lord speaks to me, it is His Word!  The Lord created the universe and all that is in it so how can anything be too difficult for Him?  It cannot, hallelujah!  Though discipline comes to correct us from our own wayward ways, when we return to our God, He returns to us above and beyond what we ever could think or imagine!  We just need to Trust Him and KNOW the TRUTH of His Word to us!
Ephesians 3:19-20 AMP
19 and [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God’s presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself].
20 Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us, 21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen.

We reap what we sow and God still comes through with His love and mercy!
Mark 3
Who can truly accuse the Lord of being anything but good?  The Lord HATES legalism and LOVES mercy!  The Lord has called us to Him as He desired!  Family members will often think when we truly love the Lord that we are crazy!  Calling the Holy Spirit, the devil is not acceptable, ever and not forgivable!  People, please!  Be careful what you speak!  Oh, how blessed am I to be called the sister of the Lord!
Meditate & Apply: Let the Potter have His way in building me into a vessel that He is pleased with.  Nothing is too difficult in my life, ever for the Lord!  The real fear of the Lord brings me beyond what is good and wonderful in my life.  My part is to believe Him which means I live, speak and act like I truly do believe Him!  He called me to be His by His desire to do so!  It is usually those closest to you (family) who think you are out of your mind for loving the Lord.  I surely experienced this in my life (my brother didn’t talk to me for 2 years at one time) and we still experience it with some of PJs family (there are those who haven’t talked to him in years).  And to think, if being blessed and having a personal, intimate relationship with our Creator is crazy, then call me so!

You are always welcome, I'm here to help! Super helpful stuff - Allow Him to build us and be patient while He's doing so. Nothing is too hard for Him! Our family in God is closer than our real family, not too surprising really (-:
