The Only Place to Be Found is In Christ (JYJWJ)

 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18


The Fullness of God (JYJWJ)


For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

Colossians 2:9-10

 You pour the coffee, get your Bible and journal, grab that favorite pen and find a quiet spot. You open your Bible feeling unsure. Your mind wanders to your To Do list and you fumble for  a task pad, writing down that thing to be done, only to realize that your mind has begun to assault you with the 14 other things you know you need to do and suddenly instead of feeling peace FULL, you are feeling peace deprived, distracted and thinking that this quiet time stuff might be for the birds; because no matter how hard you try to make it happen…it just never happens in a way that works for you. As a matter of fact, it leaves you feeling either like an epic failure or like one more thing to do on an already overwhelming list of things to do, that ain’t getting done either.


The Journey Begins



“Written prayer is the key to my consistent conversation with the Lover of my soul. It is an intimacy that I can enjoy anytime, anyplace. I simply open my journal, lift my pen and pour out my heart.” ~ Lynn D.  Morrissey

Today is the day. Grab your backpack and water bottle. Eat your Wheaties. Focus. No extra baggage. It is not complicated to meet with Jesus. I promise it’s not. The hardest thing will be staying on the path. Keep it simple, and do not burden yourself with extraneous details or materials. Bible, Pen, Journal. OK, you can have a couple of pens…just nothing that will distract you from hearing Him. OH, and Coffee. But, mine usually gets cold. If you have not yet, consecrated your Journal, start today. Simply, take it to God in prayer. That is what we will be doing. Are you ready to jump in.
