See That No One Takes You Captive

See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. Col. 2:8

The world focuses on externals. If you focus on your relationship with Jesus, you will have a power and a confidence that nothing and no one can take.

The Work of His Fingers

Super Blue Blood Moon--Super because it's the closest to the earth so appears 14% larger (I think it's 14%); Blue because it's the second full moon in one month; Blood because it's at the same time as an eclipse and it turns the moon an amber color. (Wish we could've seen that--we were too far south).
Events like these always remind me of Psalm 8:3-6: When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,The moon and the stars, which You set in place.....

To God Be the Glory!!

Pictures taken over Jan. 29, 30, 31 because you never know what weather we're going to have. Jan. 31--the official night of the Super Blue Blood Moon.

Wonderful Sunday Morning

What a wonderful Sunday morning! So good to be back in church! My husband and I both took the flu shot in October, but still managed to get the flu somehow--my husband right before Christmas and me two days after Christmas. Then I had a secondary sinus infection that cleared up two days ago. The upside of being sick for so long is that it strips away your busyness and reminds you that you are not the one in control, that you never were the one in control, and how very much you need to cling to and rely on the One who is in control.

On a totally unrelated subject, but to keep me from having to post again, I wanted to share my new most favorite song. Click here. Can't stop singing the chorus. I'm sure my hubby wishes I would.

Sometimes the Lord Lets Us Know He's Heard Us



Psalm 6, ESV
O Lord, rebuke me not in your anger,
    nor discipline me in your wrath.
Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing;
    heal me, O Lord, for my bones are troubled.
My soul also is greatly troubled.
    But you, O Lord—how long?
Turn, O Lord, deliver my life;
    save me for the sake of your steadfast love.
For in death there is no remembrance of you;
    in Sheol who will give you praise?
I am weary with my moaning;
    every night I flood my bed with tears;
    I drench my couch with my weeping.
My eye wastes away because of grief;
    it grows weak because of all my foes.
Depart from me, all you workers of evil,
    for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping.
The Lord has heard my plea;
    the Lord accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled;
    they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.

Something happens between verse 7 & 8. Suddenly David knows deep inside that the LORD has heard him and will save him. God must’ve let him know somehow. Sometimes for me it’s like a sudden release of burden; sometimes it’s the Spirit moving in my innermost being; sometimes He puts a specific Bible verse in my mind; and sometimes He speaks a word to my soul.Sometimes I just know deep inside that God heard my prayer.
 
I love you, Lord; thank you for all the ways You let me know You hear me.
