Day 29: Just Read


It is filled with them

Every page

Every sentence

Every word

Down to the last ".".

A message for me

A message for you

A message for all

All 66 of them~

Books of the Bible

Filled with the LivingWord

that is transforming

from the moment you read just one Word.

Oh the power of

This Book

for this Pharisee

who thought she knew Jesus

because I knew the stories

but I didn't have a relationship with Him

until

He connected my head to my heart.

Below is a writing from long ago

after studying

the Book of Luke

that transformed

this Pharisee

to a Believer

when

Jesus....

SILENCES

the questioning Zechariah in me~

as I become like Mary BELIEVING that I carry the Christ child inside of me. Luke 1

BAPTIZED

me with the Holy Spirit~

A power available to me at any time…when I choose to plug into it. Luke 3

ENABLES

me to walk in victory when I am in the desert~

by giving me His word to speak against the tempter Luke 4

FULFILLED

Isaiah 61~

So He can preach the good news to my poor spirit and

Set me free from the prisons I build Luke 4

ADAPTS

in me the infamous Nike “Just Do It” attitude of the first disciples~

as I daily drop my “nets” so I can follow Him. Luke 5

HEALS

the paraplegic in me~

as He forgives me so I am able to walk away from the things that paralyze me. Luke 5

Makes me LAUGH~

as He loves to stir up the crowds by breaking the “Laws”. Luke 6

BLESSES

me through all of my woes~

as He Feeds my hungry heart,

turns my wailing into dancing, and

Accepts and Loves me through insult and rejection. Luke 6

REMOVES

the plank out of my eye,

chipping it out, piece by piece~

as I Do Unto Others. Luke 6

HEALS

strained relationships~

through my passing on His forgiveness. Luke 7

ADDS

more concrete to my wobbly foundation~

as I take action and walk the talk. Luke 7

BREAKS

my alabaster bottles of sin at His feet~

so He can wash me clean. Luke 7

WEEDS

away the thorns my life~

to make room for a firmly planted seed. Luke 8

SHINES

through me~

when I give Him the GLORY for the changes in my life. Luke 9

I TRADE

the approval of men for God’s~

as I am not ashamed of Christ,

as I carry His expensive cross. Luke 9

He has TAUGHT

me the true meaning of the word "all". Luke 10

CALMS

the crazy performance oriented Martha in me. Luke 10

OPENS

my door~

when I ask, seek, and knock with confidence. Luke 11

HUMBLES

the Pharisee in me. Luke 11

REMINDS

me of the Sparrows~

when I start fluttering into worry. Luke 12

FINDS

me~

when I am seeking my own way. Luke 12

“READIES”

me~

to face Jesus. Luke 12

THINS

me out~

so I can fit through the narrow door. Luke 13

I become PERSISTENT

in Seeking God’s face first~

instead of persistently seeking to get my own way. Luke 15

I ENJOY

His Spiritual kingdom here on earth like I never did before. Luke 17

TEACHES

me that the word "impossible" is not in God’s vocabulary. Luke 18

....to be forever continued....

Lessons learned

Lessons continually being learned

as how quickly I forget

but how quickly

He reminds me

as I open up

The Book

And

Read

His Word

that Has the power

to daily

change the Pharisee in me

into a

Believer

and this is only from a couple of chapters

as

there is so much more

because He is so much more

for me and for you~

as we become less

so He becomes more

AND

all that I have to do

all that you have to do

is to

receive

Him

believe

Him

and

grab His hand

like a child

on Christmas morning who

immediately opens

and

immediately receives

the gifts

with joy and thanksgiving.

That’s how we are to receive Jesus

and all His gifts just because

He loves us!

What lesson would you like to learn today?

So

let's

Put On

His Word

and

just read

His Book

and

be

transformed

as

He

continues to write your story.
