Justified

Now of course, this never happens to anyone else right?? My computer blew up yesterday. I was so disappointed because I was eager to get on track to write a weekly blog post. With a lot of help from my husband and transferring "computer stuff" to his computer, I can do it this morning. I am praying to stay disciplined in this. I write every day and this post is refreshing to me. Do you as a writer, consider writing every day? It doesn't matter what, just keeps the juices flowing.
Like many of you, I carry around a pen and paper, or...write on a napkin or toilet paper when necessary. You never know when God will give you something, even if it is a title. If you are writing for Him, you will get inspiration I promise. To quote someone I respect: Jerry Jenkins believes that there is no such thing as writer's block. It is hard work and we need to be open 24/7 to God's work and pick up the pen and begin to write in faith.

This week all my studies point to what a friend we have in Jesus. He is our all in all isn't he?
Romans 5:1 tells us about peace and joy. Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
I have drunk deeply from the quiet peaceful pool of justification. May I offer you a cup my friend?
The water is cool, sweet, and fresh. You are justified by faith.

Father, may the fruits of peace and joy spill forth from my soul as I drink deeply and fully, receiving justification in Jesus Christ. Thank you Jesus for giving me the faith to receive this wonderful gift and the fruits being ripened in me. May I embrace them and share the overflowing wonder of them with the lost and weary.

Blessings,
Paulette

You are a writer, Paulette. How fun to glimpse inside your heart.

God loves you and so do I.

And yes, I write almost every day. Somewhere. About some thing...
