    John 7
    look at it this way, if a nation was freely given foreign aid to another nation, yet that nation receiving, was discarding the aid given, and tossing it rendering it a complete loss, back then everyone enjoyed lamenting, but never realized how close truth and life was that they dried up there own river of life, voluntary.

    mark 12: 1-12- during this reading, my husband explained this parables are about Israel- The cornerstone is Christ, and the Gentiles were given the cornerstone to build.

    Mark 10- This reminds me when I hear children laugh, that Christ would want me to laugh also, to know he is there to hold me

    Mark 8
    Addendum
    I cannot feed myself Only when I acknowledge
    that He alone can feed me will I be satisfied
    He is more than enough

    Mark 8
    These are not casual meetings between Jesus and the crowd the blind man and His disciples Jesus requires a turning of the heart
    to Him a commitment of the mind an understanding and perception that he who hungers and thirsts after rigthteousness
    shall be filled My part is to come to turn humbly and honestly Only He can satisfy my inner desires with true spiritual food
    I will not lack I will not be in need This is true intimacy

    Mark 3
    So what would my response be to Jesus?
    He is demon possessed He is crazy
    Or would I be part of the group sitting around Him? How would I know He was trustworthy and not another strange guy saying He is the son of man And what does that mean? He was downright odd
    Who would stand up to the religious leaders with such authority that they were dumbfounded They could not control Him
    Did He go too far? Did He sometimes get it wrong? Never according to the Scriptures And lest we forget He was truly man a human being subject to all of our temptations yet without sin
    I choose to be part of the inner circle desiring to do the will of God and surrendering to Him in community with others no matter how odd it may be

    Mark 2
    Jesus is always doing what is unexpected
    He reaches out with pity and compassion to those we determine are undeserving whether they ask for it or not
    Can I do likewise? It is not an easy task
    It is only as my heart is made tender and my mind transformed by Gods mercy and grace and as I am continually filled with the Spirit that I can see people’s hearts and reach out to them as God provides opportunities

    45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time?"

    Praise God. To share and show the love of God and what Jesus has done for us. Only through the Holy Spirit can we do such and share in his timing. May we be the servant who is faithful and wise before our Lord comes. In season and out of season.

    I had made a comment to a family member last year about all the destruction that has been taking place. From Polar vortex to massive tornado's & Hurricanes to forest fire's and snow storms… It's so important that we are aware of our surroundings at all times and what needs to take place when disaster strike's. It's even more important that we are prepared Spiritually and mentally.

    In Matthew 16, Peter is so relatable for me as he wrestles with his faith and his flesh. He is called the Rock by Christ, even though he would betray his king.

    There are 2 things that stood out for me here
    1 Jesus made spending time alone with the Father a priority
    2 When the disciples called out to Him in need He immediately reached out to them
