The Care & Feeding of Zebras

An A to Z Look At The Ironies Of Life

Rooted in GRACE

UNITY AND MATURITY IN THE BODY OF CHRIST
“As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. This is why it says: “When he ascended on high, he took many captives and gave gifts to his people.” (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions? He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:1-16‬ ‭NIV‬‬

More LOVE

Faithfulness 

I even disappoint myself! The road to you know where is paved with every good intention made by all of us. No matter how high and noble it may be, I do believe at the time we state our intentions we do so with confidence that we will do as intended and finish the noble deed. Yet we cave at the first signs of “hard work” needed to accomplishing these noble intentions. Yes, I even disappoint myself. Remember there is only one true and noble Promise Keeper! God is the Promise Maker! God is the Promise Keeper! #nosmallfaith #kyeoj #TheJesusMovement @gee543 @gee43

Happy Friday, dear friends & family! It’s going to be a truly gorgeous day and an awesome weekend!

Remember, God is the Promise Maker! God is the Promise Keeper!

He never promised any one that this journey would be easy! He dose promise that it is worth it! When I’m feeling discouraged by the detours my journey takes me on, I know He is right there with me! His Strength Is truly the only thing that gets me through most days! His unwillingness to give up on me, when I’ve been ready to throw in the towel of surrender and defeat. How easy it would be just to give in when the climb becomes too hard or the storm seems to be unending. Yet, He carries me over the rocky hills and His beacon of light breaks the darkest of storms guiding my way. With this much LOVE ❤️ how could I ever not love Him? His plan is perfect!

Choosing this day to accept His strength, His love, His peace!

Never Fails 

Far too often I allow my eyes, my thoughts and even my heart to stray from focusing on the big picture. The world comes crashing through and the anxiety and fears take over! It’s very hard for us to place our concerns at the feet of our Lord, walk away and patiently wait His directions and answers! And, what if He answers us with what we don’t want to hear, do or accept as an answer? Right, so we grab back what we have just left and continue trying to have this life our way, not His! I look at all that He has bestowed on us, an ordered universe, the skills to survive, a need to connect to a Higher Power and the only way to this Power! He spoke all of this and us into being! His WORD has never failed. Why would I (we) think He would fail us now? I (we) need to not accept the negative thoughts being hurled at us by a world that rejected the Cornerstone, Christ Jesus, and focus on LOVE and the Power of His Grace and Marcy! Remember, God is the Promise Maker! God is the Promise Keeper! He is the same, yesterday, today, forever more! He has never failed! He never will fail! His plan is perfect for each of us! #nosmallfaith #kyeoj #TheJesusMovement @gee43 @gee543

Rejoice


Merry Christ Mass! Rejoice! God is among us, today, yesterday and tomorrow! The shepherds were given the Good News by an angelic choir, singing His praises! They went to where they where told they would find this Infant King, not to any palace, but the humble manger. They found just what they had been told they would and left rejoicing and praising God! They were among the first to ever lay eyes on the face of God! Can you even begin to imagine what that could have been like? I know that today we don’t seem to hear or even see angelic choirs giving directions on anything. And for most of us it is getting harder to see God, much less His Holy Face, in this tumultuous world we have created. But we have the promises from God, Himself, that if we seek Him, He will find us and save us! He already has! He is the Good Shepherd seeking His lost! He is the jubilant Father, rejoicing over the return of His prodigal child (us)! Remember, God is the promise maker! God is the promise keeper! Seek Him for He is seeking you! Come home to Him, He waits with open arms to embrace us! Be the face of God in this dark and fret filled world! His plan is perfect! #nosmallfaith #kyeoj #TheJesusMovement @gee43 @gee543
