Dear Readers, I hope this is a blessing to you! Sometimes, we just need to open our mind to hear from the Lord. Sometimes we can block our blessings by our thoughts. But like this morning, when I asked Jesus to help me, “Holy Spirit” Your thoughts be mine, God opened my mind to see, when I got my thoughts out of the way. Jesus truly is the Truth, the Way and the Life! I write, because I love to do what God enables me and trusts me to do … and all because God loves you. If you can’t believe God loves you yet? That’s okay; begin by believing Jesus loves you and say, Yes, Lord, I am listening! I believe! God does the rest. God has loved you 1st. We just believe and trust by faith, what our Created heart responds to when we hear the Voice of our Maker say, “Child, of God, we are made to live with God … believe God’s own Testimony about His Son, Jesus, and …”

The Heart of Jesus, by Karen Rowe
How many books are there in the Bible?
The last 27 books of the Bible, from Matthew to Revelation, combined with the first 39 books of the Holy Bible from Genesis to Malachi, we have the Biblical canon of 66 books that make up our complete Bible.
A biblical canon of scripture is a set of texts which a particular religious community regards as authoritative scripture. The English word “canon” comes from the Greek κανών, meaning “rule” or “measuring stick”.
There are hundreds of versions of the Bible in the English language. The Bible has been translated into more than 2000 languages.
“BUT he that is JOINED UNTO the Lord is ONE spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).”
Get Understanding SALT preserves! READ Proverbs 4:5-6! WOW!
In Africa, there is no separation between government & religion. Thus, their view of Christians is from a distant world view, & one that misrepresents a true Follower of Jesus.
Perhaps even in our own Country, as I live in the USA, people get a world’s glance and can’t see the separation that happens in a Christians heart.
There is a Form of Religion, but Jesus takes our heart to a superior level of understanding that Jesus is the Bridge to our Redeemed Relationship with God, Our Father who art in Heaven.
Yes, painting a picture of what Jesus does in our heart, is like seeing old-fashioned flower beds burst up NEW in the spring!
It is by the Spirit of God that life is & is sustained!
Christ puts God’s Mind in us when we receive God’s Promised Salvation! Each day we get OPPORTUNITY to “die to self” & SEEK the Mind of God. GOD’S WILL be done IS Good Will!
How else could an OLDER heart BECOME New! FROM a proud to be stubborn girl that could hold a grudge … TO be quick to ask Holy Spirit how can I remain at Peace with ___?
Lord God, Creator of the Universe, thank you for another day! May I show compassion in every thing I do. FRIENDS, when faith intersects God’s Faithfulness, we will know our Father in an intimate way!
In Christ, saved by Grace and believed to receive the Holy Spirit, We have two minds. Choose Holy Spirit’s Mind, and abide in the Mind of Christ; put on the full armor of God & dwell in the Spiritual House forever and ever, beginning with this brand New Today.
Love in Christ,
“WRITING THE STORY OF MY LIFE WITH EVERY CHOICE JESUS HELPS ME TO MAKE AND LEARNING HOW TO BE BLESSED AND LIVE LIFE LARGE, HAPPY AND FREE. I CARE.”
Personal Motto: “I don’t have it all figured out, BUT GOD DOES … Follow JESUS!”
Personal Revelation Life Verse: And we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and the one who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him (1 John 4:16 HCSB)
Thank you Jesus!
Holy Spirit you are welcome here!
