Useful Again: Redeemed for a Purpose

Today's Prompt: Useful We have a shed out back that is in need of being torn down.  But first, it has to be cleaned out.  Over the years, it has been a place where things we didn't use or need at the time have been put to "deal with later".  So one of my projects this summer is to deal with all that stuff so we can demolish that shed.  I've been throwing away, repurposing, and cleaning up items I've found.  It has been my own little treasure hunt!  One of the items I found was a bunch of silverware...

You are a Unique Masterpiece-Write a Manifesto Declaring It!

 Today's Prompt: Unique   Ephesians 2:10 say we are God's own masterpiece.  Merriam-Webster defines a masterpiece "as a work done with extraordinary skill; especially  a supreme intellectual or artistic achievement."  To be a masterpiece, the work must be original and unique.   You are a masterpiece!  The master craftsman created you.  David describes you Psalm 139.  You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside and my intricate outside, and wove them all together in my mother’s womb. I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex! Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking. It simply amazes me to think about it!...

God's Voice

     Today's Prompt: Voice If you read my blogs, you will see where I say God told me… or I heard God say.  I want to clarify what I mean when I say that.    The sheep that are My own hear My voice and listen to Me; I know them, and they follow Me.  John 10:27 AMP   Most of the time, I hear God's voice in my spirit.  It is not an audible sound heard with my physical ears.  It is a knowing in my spirit that it is God speaking.  Sometimes it is in words, sometimes I see...

Entrapped by Our Mouth

Entrapped by Our Mouth

Today's Prompt: Entrap   A fool's mouth is his unraveling, and his lips entrap himself. Proverbs 18:7 ISV   Early in my early twenties, I read a book by E.W. Kenyon about the power of your tongue. I don't remember the name of the book, but it changed my life. I became very aware of the words coming out of my mouth and the words coming from others. I was shocked! If our speech was creating our future, we were painting ourselves a very bleak one. If every word we spoke carried power, we were cursing each other as we...

Tattered Heart

Jodee Schrlau #write28days encouragement Word of the Year: Become

Tattered Heart

Todays Prompt: Tattered Do you have a tattered heart?  Tattered means old and worn, in poor condition, showing signs of wear and tear or neglect.  One of the ways our heart becomes tattered is that disappointments pile up over the years. The big ones we have to deal with. However, the small ones, we just shove into a corner and go about our life.   Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.  Proverbs 13:12   Hope deferred, also known as a disappointment, comes when our expectations are not met in a timely...
