Philippians 2:13 Leader Ender Quilt UPDATED 2/17/2017

Philippians 2:13 
Scripture
blue flower | for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.  Philippians 2:13 | image tagged in blue flower | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Observation
Isn't this awesome!  It is God who works in each of us to want to act in order to fulfill His good purposes!  


And His main purpose is 
for us to be His child.  
blue flower | Therefore, my dear friends, 
as you have always obeyed—
not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—
continue to work out your  | image tagged in blue flower | made w/ Imgflip meme maker

Application
Therefore, His precious one, remember, your salvation and relationship with God doesn't come solely from acts of goodness for our world.  

It comes via many factors.
The ones that come immediately to mind are, for me, the most important:
1) by faith in Him, 
2) by listening and obeying His voice 
as He guides us on this wonderful journey of creating and developing a loving, trusting relationship with Him. 

Prayer
LORD, to be honest, it was hard for me to build a loving, trusting relationship with You.   As You well know, life had handed me plenty of lemons via many forms of abuse and diseases.  But, as I sought You with a heart that was 
hurt,
angry,
sad,
confused at Your will, 
confused at free will You have given us, 
I realized You never abandoned me.
YOU WERE RIGHT THERE AT MY SIDE.
Sometimes You were weeping.
Sometimes You were rejoicing with me.
Sometimes You held me.
Sometimes You held my hand.
Sometimes You were quiet,
waiting to see how 
I would react.
And even when I reacted poorly,
You never abandoned me.
You loved me 
through it all.

I had to work hard
at my own salvation
with
fear,
trembling
and trust.
And
FINALLY
I have learned to forgive.
You persistently brought this song 
into my life
until I really heard it.

You played it on the radio
every single time I started my car.
You made sure I heard it
over and over.
Thank you.
Today,
I am peaceful.
I am serene.
I have forgiven.
I am free.
I am grateful.
Amen.

Leader Ender Quilt
Ok...So I was all excited because I thought I had finished my leader/ender blocks.....No, I hadn't.  I simply misplaced them......Grrrrrr!

But...I have gone from this
a mere six blocks

to this!
UPDATE:  Thank you, Nancy, for your comment!  I randomly placed these blocks on my current comforter to see how they would fit on my bed.  I'm planning on using a beige on beige background fabric!  :)
35 blocks!

And I need to piece 21 more!
I should have enough for a 
queen bed
and maybe a throw!
Yea!
Yea for leader/ender projects!
They go up so quickly!

  1. I love your red and green blocks against the brown. This will be a gorgeous quilt. I imagine combinations like this in my mind and then tell myself no, it wouldn't look as good as I imagine it. And then I see someone who actually puts the colors together. Yes! How big are your 9-patch blocks.
