Pray, Trust, Be Still and Keep My Faith

This summer, I constantly played; "Where is your Faith?" by Rev. James Cleveland. 
My mother played it every Sunday from her cassette.  I hadn't heard it since I was a little girl growing up in rural South GA. It brought back the "peaceful joy" I felt for the first time, from the Holy Spirit, when I was nine years old.  It started to make sense.  Summer's faith season was leading me to Fall's faith season of  prayer, trust,"Be Still", and keep my faith.

Until next time....

Abiding Fruit???

I strive second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, week by week, month by month and year by year to cultivate and bear the fruit of the spirit.

Galatians 5:22 
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 

Thank God I am not where I used to be.  I was sooo excited to read about "Abiding Fruit" Bible Study!

"Choose Life"
Until next time....

Don't Cease!

On my annual visit to the doctor, my heart was lifted by this plaque:

1 Thessalonians 5:17 (Whole Chapter) 
Pray without ceasing.

Just wanted to share(:

"Choose Life"

Until next time....
