My weekly personal note:
(Skip down to the weekly journal jots if you prefer.)
I am grateful for the time to connect with you once again. Last week I ran into a project snag. I was building a new church website for my dad. I had intended to be mostly done by last Tuesday, but things didn’t go as smoothly as planned.
Sometimes projects require extra time and fortitude. I lost all my work and had to start all over from scratch and build on a completely new platform. I have just a few tiny things to finish up with that project, but for the most part, it’s pretty much finished.
I felt so grateful for God allowing me the ability and knowledge to do it for my dad. It’s definitely one of my trophy memories now. [Big grin]
I have attempted to start writing another devotional post this week. I have to say, I’m struggling a bit with getting my thoughts together on paper. The good news is that I have been feeling a bit better the last two days.
Next week, I finally have my scheduled doctor appointment. I do not know what all will transpire there. I do hope to find some answers to my health issues. One thing I know for sure… God is our Mighty Physician. With Him in control you and I do not need to fear our circumstances.
Whatever concerns you may have personally at this time, put all your trust in our Heavenly Father who loves you and cares for you!

7 Journal Jots: (Use these ideas for your own journal or ministry)
“If you keep your heart in the right place, you’ll have little trouble keeping a righteous perspective.” - Refreshing Daily in God’s Word, Aug. 2021 issue
“When God measures a person, He puts the tape measure around the heart, not the head.” - RDIGW, Aug. 2021 [“for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.” - I Samuel 16:7b]
Righteousness defined: [Greek] bring your life on the level with God’s Word. [Hebrew] that which is acceptable to God. (We should hunger and thirst after a life that is on the level with God’s Word — a life that is acceptable to God.)
The best day of SIN is the first day — because it all goes down hill after that.
How to Obtain HELP from God: 1. Be willing to put some things away in your life. 2. Prepare your heart. 3. Pray
We have SECURITY with God: No matter how many times Noah fell down in the Ark, he didn’t fall out!
*QUESTION? What are some areas that worldliness tends to creep into your life? How might you create better safeguards against worldliness? One quote that I wrote in my journal is: “Put God first and the world will flee from you.”
