Why I have taken time off.......




Some of you know that the Lord is the MOST important one in Jim's,mine, and our family's life. Those closest to me..know this already.:) Jim and I are ministers and the Lord has been teaching us the things he wants us to teach others.That is why I have taken the time away from my blog and scrapping. We are following the leading of the Holy Spirit and this is taking us in a different direction. It's so exciting to have the Lord personally train you for the mission he has set before you. I am totally amazed by the grace he has given us and the provisions he has put in place for those that give their lives as a living sacrifice to him and his cause. He not only calls you, but gives you the knowledge and wisdom necessary to fulfill that calling.
The Lord has taught us that it's not US that is doing the work.It's him..through us.The only thing we do..is yield ourselves to him..as a living sacrifice and then obey his instructions and he takes it from there. Like Moses.God did the work..all Moses had to do was obey the thing God told him to do.Example...put your staff in the water and I will part the sea.All Moses had to do was obey the Lord and put his staff in the water.God did the rest!! :) How simple the Lord has made it. But there is a commitment and dedication necessary for those who would love to walk in the Kingdom of God. He doesn't give his Spiritual gifts to babies who are unskillful in using them.KWIM? You have to KNOW that he is..and that he is a REWARDER to those who DILIGENTLY seek him.

Hebrews 11:6

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Matthew 6:33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Jesus told his disciples..to forsake all and come follow him. Everything else must take second place. It is soooooo worth it!:)

This doesn't mean I won't come to visit you ..I just won't be able to do it as often.:) I LOVE all of you and sooo appreciate your friendship to me. Thank you!:)


Love and hugs to all!
