Day 30 – Love Jesus & Get Stoned

10 thoughts on “Day 30 – Love Jesus & Get Stoned”

  1. Reminds me of the saying you often see quoted in memes online, It’s not until you hit rock bottom that you realize God is the Rock at the bottom. Isn’t it funny how God likes to use the school of hard knocks to get you looking from your dead-end circumstances, to him?

    Aside thought, isn’t it funny how many cliches I just dished out? Wow! On a roll today! Better stop before all my writer friends give me a virtual head smack. Lol!

  2. Pearl- this was great! I loved this line, “When my understanding leaves me in a dead-end, all I have to do is admit it and ask Jesus for help.”
    I’m going through a rough patch and I’m trying to figure everything out, but my attempts and actions aren’t helping. This might be key and admit it and ask Jesus for help!

    1. Julie, I’m thrilled you stopped by! Thank you for your kind words. I’m not thrilled you’re going through a rough patch. Those are awful. May God help you through this time and give you just what you need at each step along the way. May he comfort and grant peace in the midst of the storm, until He sees fit to calm the storm itself. Hugs!

  3. One step at a time … small steps of faith to get us through the day … through life. Thanks Pear! I can relate to the spiritual spiritual amnesia …seems like it was just yesterday that I had learned this lesson. Also, I think Stephe saw Jesus in his spirit … it’s what got through the suffering. That’s my prayer to see Jesus through the trials.

    1. Hulda, absolutely! Yes, I definitely think seeing Jesus was what gave Stephen the ability to get through his suffering. I love your prayer and am so grateful you shared that and the clarification. Appreciate you so much!

  4. I was kinda scared to read this after the title… 😀

    How I needed to read it! I know exactly what you mean. I’ve been mulling over the same thing this morning. “But God, if I do this, people will not like me…” Big whoop! Suffering will come one way or nother. Why not suffer to His glory?!

    I also thought of my friend whose house burned. Her life is like the exploding popcorn right now. I totally believe, though, that beauty will literally come from the ashes. Funny how you can quickly spot someone who’s gone through the fire. Nothing fazes them.

    God bless, sweet sister! Thanks so much for writing!

    1. Rebekah, you made me smile. Ya know, gotta pique your interest. 😉 So grateful God encouraged you through this. I am continuing to pray for your friend who lost everything in the fire. May God use this situation to bring her and her kiddos into a much better one. Love your comment about spotting people who have been through the fire. Blessings on you and your family, also!

  5. Thank you for this Pearl of wisdom 🙂 Seriously, I have been so tired at times that I pray myself out of bed. I had never thought of faith in this way, but it really makes sense. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and encouragement with me.

    1. Polly, thank you so much for your kind words! I’m glad God encouraged you through this. I’ll pray for you (and me, both) that we can look up and get up when we need to. Thanking God for the gift of you today!
