Jeremiah was being called as a prophet, yet he felt inadequate - as do many of us who are called may feel. Perhaps, especially in challenging times, we feel inadequate or ill-equipped to handle the situation at hand. But, let us remember that God not oly formed us, but He knew us in the womb. He knew our current situation would happen. And, just as he provided for so many in the Bible, He will provide for us!
Can you imagine God – GOD – touching our mouths with His very hand!? The LORD saw Jeremiah’s heart and reached out with a touch and words of reassurance: “I have put My words in your mouth.” Oh my God! Let this be our prayer! May Your words be in our mouths! As we go through challenges, if God’s words are in our mouths, they have to be in our minds as well! If we can only remember this verse, then how much stronger will we be able to stand against any challenge life throws at us?
As one of my loved ones recently said: I’m on my knees with my hands up. It’s ok. Sometimes we face the battle with broken hearts and tears running down our cheeks. But joy comes in the morning. (Psalm 30:5)
We draw strength from the confidence we have knowing that God has known us since were in the womb, He knows the challenges we will face as well as how inadequate we may feel. But remember: Feelings are not fact. Draw strength that He has touched us, given us His words to speak and made us strong. Perhaps, even more comforting is the fact that we know even as we fight our way through the battle, He is with us and will rescue us! My dear reader, today I’m writing to myself as well as to you. Blessings to you!
My Reading Life
I just heard about The Clutter Connection at Colleta's Kitchen Sink and had to add it to be started very soon!
|My daughter showed me this meal in a box that her family likes. She simply adds the sausage for an easy meal!|
|My little sister makes sure Mama always has fresh flowers.|
|Doesn't this look like a fun, delicious breakfast?|
|Great ideas...if only I could remember to implement them! 🤣🤣|
|My family tells me I keep my home too cold. My thermostat is set between 72 and 74 degrees. |
Maybe they're right?

The Weekly Word
I wrote about a book, Barrio America by A. K. Sandoval-Strausz here, but wanted to share a Scripture he shared as a beginning quote that has inspired this post.
My Stash Reportis a Sunday Stash link up at Quilt, Paint and Create where we share our stats regarding our fiber usage and acquisitions. The Slow Stitching Sunday link up is a place where we share our hand sewing projects. I find I need some slow stitching every day!
