Jesus Calling

Needed this!

Jesus Calling Oct 30th

God is always with us. Always. I know I say that a lot, but so many people don’t even have a clue. They are unaware of His Presence’s existence. 
He promises to always be with you. People don’t know this or feel Him or hear Him because their minds are so clogged up and busy. They are so filled with everything going on around them that it is impossible for them to hear Him. They are unfocused. We are His children and His sheep, we should know what His voice sounds like. 
To start out you need to be in a quiet place. So you can hear His voice and grasp it. Know what it sounds like. Then you will be more experienced in hearing Him in the real world with everything going on around you. You will be able to hear Him in all circumstances if you just bring the stillness with you.

Jeremiah 20:13

Sing to the Lord! Praise the Lord! For though I was poor and needy, he rescued me from my oppressors.
John 10:14-18
I am the Good Shepherd. I know my own sheep and my own sheep know me. In the same way, the Father knows me and I know the Father. I put the sheep before myself, sacrificing myself if necessary. You need to know that I have other sheep in addition to those in this pen. I need to gather and bring them, too. They’ll also recognize my voice. Then it will be one flock, one Shepherd. This is why the Father loves me: because I freely lay down my life. And so I am free to take it up again. No one takes it from me. I lay it down of my own free will. I have the right to lay it down; I also have the right to take it up again. I received this authority personally from my Father.”

Begin again

If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again. – Flavia

When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal, you do not change your decision to get there. – Zig Ziglar



Constant fixing

This is a good description about what living with a chronic illness is like. Trying to feel better is not easy. Even when I am feeling better at times doesn’t mean that my illness is gone. It takes constant work to keep things under control, and to continue to feel better.

This past week I have been feeling terrible. I have been dealing with a cold, and now a bad cough. My pain, and fatigue have been a lot worse along with just an overall feeling of weakness.
