The Care & Feeding of Zebras

An A to Z Look At The Ironies Of Life

SHINE


This passage calls to memory the hymn, This Little Light of Mine. I can hear my four year old daughter singing out very loudly, how she was going to let it shine! She is no longer that four year old but I look at her and still see that special Light, planted in faith deep with in her, shining brightly wherever she goes! My prayer is that, that same Light, John bore wittiness to, is still shining in and through me. We are all called during this Season of Advent to take stock of our faith walk. The world seems to be as dark as ever these days. Wars! Riots! Injustices! Bigotry! Fear! Little or no respect! Have you room for His Light to grow with in you? Have you sought a way out of this darkness? He is waiting for you to answer if there is room for Him. You are the innkeeper. Remember, God is the promise maker! God is the promise keeper! Even a little light casts out darkness! His plan, LOVE, is perfect for each of us! LET HIM SHINE! #nosmallfaith #kyeoj #TheJesusMovement @gee43 @gee543 

UNDERSTOOD 

His love is so great for all of His creation that He put on the mantle of humanity and came to walk among us. When we go to Him with our cares, our sorrows, our hurts, pain and dispare, He knows exactly how we feel. He knows our struggles and how hard it is to hold on throughout the twists and turns of our journey. It is not by my faith alone, for there are times I know I can’t take another step forward, but by His faith in me. Giving Him my doubt, while He carries me to the next mountain top. He is God, the promise maker! He is God the promise keeper! His plan for you and me is perfect and complete! He LOVES each of us into His kingdom! Open our hearts today, lets us have room for His LOVE to grow BIG in us! #nosmallfaith #kyeoj #TheJesusMovement @gee43 @gee543

PIF

PAID IN FULL 

There is nothing I most likely wouldn’t do if I could keep someone I loved from being hurt or in danger. Even seeing my children sick with colds I would often pray that it would be me going through the fight of getting well. Seeing my husband in pain from his injured back and needing several major surgeries I prayed that it had been me and not him in all that pain. It’s not because I didn’t want to care for them, but rather I didn’t want them to have to suffer. I know that is what God our Father feels for each of us. He sees, know and feels our pain and anguish as we struggle daily to get through. To find the path back to our heavenly home. But unlike myself, my Father took care of that! He sent Jesus, my Lord, to open the path back to Him. He made sure the cost and sickness of this world was paid in full and restored my connection. Yes, I still have deep valleys to travel and some very high mountains to climb but I can trust that He is with me all the way. And if I happen to miss the mark, which is like always, I have His word that my ransom from my situation is paid in full. Remember, God is the promise maker! God is the promise keeper! He, and He alone, gives us freely this much love! His plans are perfect for each of us! #nosmallfaith #kyeoj #TheJesusMovement @gee43 @gee543

Acceptance 

We all have the inherent desire to feel needed, wanted, belonging, accepted, understood, valued, a part of “community.” Often to the point of loosing any resemblance of who we are and were meant to be. Willing to do almost anything to fill the void in our hearts and souls just too feel we are accepted by “our peers.”it’s hard to choose to “buck the system.” But if I claim to be trying to follow the teachings of a Jewish Carpenter, who not only “bucked the system,” but defeated and destroyed it, then why am I giving it so much control over my life. Yes, of course, I do care how the world sees and accepts me! I still want and need to feel love and being a part of community, but I have found it far more important to desire how God sees me and accepts me then the world He has defeated. Remember, God is the promise maker! God is the promise keeper! For if I gain the world and loose my soul I ave not won anything. Trust God, His way is perfect! #nosmallfaith #kyeoj #TheJesusMovement @gee43 @gee543

Stronghold 

With joy in our hearts, we should come boldly before the throne of Our Lord and shout out praises for all He does for us daily. Be ever mindful, God is the promise maker! God is the promise keeper! Shout with joy and praise for He is our strength. #nosmallfaith #kyeoj #TheJesusMovement @gee43 @gee543 

Faithful 

Remember, God is THE promise maker! God is THE promise keeper! He never brings us to something He doesn’t bring us through! His plans are perfect for each of us! #nosmallfaith #kyeoj #TheJesusMovement @gee43 @gee543
