As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. -- Isaiah 55:10-11

Possibly My Greatest Flaw

"Could it be my greatest flaw is fixating so much on my flaws
that I dismiss or ignore His perfect ability to love me and work in me
while working and loving perfectly through me?"
~from My Journal, Jerri Phillips~

Dear God, work in and love me as You know I need today. Show me Your heart for me and Your desire for me so I can be in agreement with you in action, thought, and word. And, Lord, work and love through me in Your perfection because Your perfection is omnipotent and greater than all my imperfections. Keep eye contact with me, and if I turn my eyes, pull them back to you, because I want to see YOU and all You want to do and not be distracted by all I know Jerri cannot do.

I love you so much. You are my heart, and I am overwhelmed by You.

Hi Kelly - beautiful post. I barely know you but can definitely see you are on a good path with Jesus. I can almost see a smile in your writing.
:) God bless

I've always been on a good path with God. It just doesn't always look like people want it to or think it should. The fact is I am in the group with a bunch of honest folks who didn't always like the way the road went. David, Job, Abraham, Moses, Esther...all on the right road. All had questions, all had complaints. All had God. I'm in good company. In fact, I'm in God-company. :-) And, yes! That is a BIG smile!!!
