REPEAT AFTER ME ....

I need you to read this aloud or PURPOSEFULLY in your head ...

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, JESUS, JESUS, JESUS, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus !!!

It is that simple to wash peace over you ... No matter the emotion or the circumstance there is just something about crying out the name JESUS ... I think of all my sweet brothers and sisters across the ocean, who probably don't have a bible, a copy of RADICAL / CRAZY LOVE, and may not even know a pastor, but somewhere deep in them they know the NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES and they call upon it ... We only need to have faith in the power of JESUS ...

I can vividly remember times when I have called out the name JESUS .... early on in my marriage when were babies trying to find our way as a couple, when angel's moved a car so that Jeremiah's life was spared, when I was fatigued from Elijah's breathing issues, sitting in my car weeping to get to my Emily in China, changing jobs, Maggie's hurt heart, mind, and body, when we had no insurance, late in the night w/ screams of terror from my angel, in the darkness needing Joseph/ Daisy home, and so much more .... JUST SAYING HIS NAME WASHED ME WITH THE PEACE I SO DESPERATELY NEEDED ... It was as if I could catch my breath and was no longer hostage by my body ...

I want to start my day by just saying "JESUS" and knowing that for the entire day I have a focus on HIM ... It is so easy for me to get up and get GOING !!!  Get 4 kids dressed for school, feed 6, start laundry, clean dishes, pick up the gazillion things around my house that are out of place, answer emails for me, 147, and Amazima and then run errands or have meetings or go BACK TO THE DOCTOR w/ one of my angels, head to carpool, dinner and then repeat ... AND WHERE DID I STOP TO INVITE JESUS TO COME ALONG ... I know I talk to HIM all day (cause I am talker), but I need sometime in the word and to be still ... I need to cry out JESUS and I need to teach my children to do the same ...

Just my thoughts for this glorious SUNDAY !!! I hope you have a blessed week ... so many of you are blessing me !!!

Me too!!! I made a list today of some things God has been speaking to my heart about. That is one of them more focus on HIM, less on stuff around me. AMEN!

Hi Gwen,
I just wanted to leave a note to let you know I was praying for you today for this week. I asked that God would give you an extra measure of strength to accomplish those things that need done and that you will have extra time to spend with your little guys who might want your attention. I pray that you will have a blessed week. I will continue to pray this week for you and your family!

Hope your day was BLESSED!

A good reminder that I have forgotten to call on Him into the struggles I'm going through. I've been trying to do it all myself.

Thanks, Gwen.

Renee said...

Thanks for the reminder. How easily I forget to call on Him in times of trouble, instead spiraling into despair.

Thanks for your words Gwen, today, and always. I have been blessed over and over by your blog.

So often when I don't want to take one more step, or one more breath, this has been the only thing that got me to the next moment. Having that kind of day today. Thank you for the reminder.

Amy said...

Thank you for the reminder to make the main thing the MAIN THING! I get so easily distracted.

Often I shudder when I think of all the POWER in the name of JESUS. The fact that one simple name holds so much POWER makes me wonder why I don't use that POWER more often. Thanks for the reminder.
