Let's Talk About Jesus

Let's Talk About Jesus
By Dona Hatherley

Let's Talk about Jesus, The King of kings is He, The Lord of lords supreme, Throughout eternity, The great 'I am the way, The truth, the life the door.' Let's talk about Jesus more and more.

This chorus I learned as a child was ringing in my heart one morning and would not leave me until I actually talked to Jesus and asked what it was He was saying by way of this song.

It is noted by His Highest Majesty when we talk to one another about Him whether by voice or email or courier. It is recorded and referred to by the Lord betimes. There are rewards for favourable talks about Jesus, Father Jehovah and Holy Spirit. He hears, He blesses. Malachi 3:16 (King James Version) Public Domain [A Public Domain Bible] [KJV at Zondervan] http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?book_id=46&chapter=3&verse=16&version=9&context=verse

16Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

Jesus said that if He were lifted up He would draw all men unto Him. To lift someone up denotes praise and boasting and exhalting with words of their good deeds. Are you drawn to someone who is held in high esteem by your neighbour? Is there an urgency to get to know a person who others adore, love and talk about constantly? Do you feel compelled to ask for more information regarding this wonderful acquaintance?

Let's talk about this Prince from Heaven who came in the form of the most vulnerable of humans, a baby. His purpose was hidden from the majority but the few who were clued in sought Him as Heaven's precious gift to mankind. Jesus was in danger His whole life under Roman rule and kept a low profile until His ministry time at the age of thirty three.

During His preaching,teaching and healing period He was courageous, brave and bold as a lion of Judah. No one compared to Him as was testified by friends and foe alike.~John 7:46 (King James Version) [A Public Domain Bible] [KJV at Zondervan]

46The officers answered, Never a man spake like this man.(After being unable to arrest Jesus) John 6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. ( Here the disciples had to choose to remain with Jesus after others left Him)

It is comforting to know that there is no other to look to for salvation, deliverance and redemption. I was glad to hear that He was the one and only to have to go through for my peace, joy and love. What a relief to not have to search any further for the door to Heaven and God the Father of us all. The truth of His message hit home in my heart and spirit.

Follow Me was His simple command. Do what I do and say! Trust Me! Believe in Me! We need this plan more than ever in a day when chaos breaks into our lives and we do not know which way to turn. Jesus said if two or three are gathered in His Name, He would be there in the midst. Wow !

Imagine being in the presence of our king just because we want to be. There is not a monarch on the earth that can bless his or her people that way. Knowing that He will come to us as often as we gather in His name is an awesome privilege the few take advantage of but the majority of believers miss out on.

Jesus the Christ, Son of the Living God and Father of us all, our Creator is waiting to hear His name not in a curse or slang way but in a loving, devotional atmosphere as when Benny Hinn has a crusade. Let's talk about Jesus more and more to have His presence and to receive

His rewards for the faithful. To fear Him is to revere Him. What is not to love in such a Savior? What is not to talk about when we are so loved that He came to die in our stead?

I am having too much Fun !!!

Having Any FUN Yet?

Recently in an email I was asked if I was having any fun yet?
The author suggested that all work is wrong and fun things to do for a small part of your day is necessary to get you accelerated . Breaking away from the usual to enjoy doing what you really want to is healthier, invigorating and a fountain of youth.

He also requested that his readers make a list of 21 fun things we could do or do do already. He wanted them posted on his blog to encourage folks to enter into a playful time.

I did the list and ended up with 44 things and could have gone on with more. I then realized that I was at the other end of the balance and should perhaps give up a few fun things in order to do well with my on line business.

Here is my list of enjoyments:

1. painting (art)
2.music, guitar,piano
3.weight lifting, rebounding, treadmill
4.walking
5.listening and seeing wildlife
6.reading
7.movies
8.grandchildren visits
9.scrabble
10.Bochii
11.croquet
12.fishing
13.swimming
14.boating
15.parties
16.fixing things
17.teaching
18.gardening
19.photography
20.canoeing
21.telling stories
22.small airplane rides
23.my cat( plays fetching marbles )
24.talking with my 91 year old mother
25.giving time, money,things to others
26.leading someone to Jesus Christ
(my all time high)
27.hearing funny,real stories
28.holding hands with hubby
29.zoos
30.bible study
31.soaking prayer
32.listening to Jesus, Father God and Holy Spirit
33.my church family times
34.dancing
35.bubble bath
36.talking with my daughter and sons
37.watching horses
38.sunbathing
39. eating out
40.learning new things
41.sewing
42.restoring people
43.counseling
44.shopping

what can I possibly give up? I am truly living the abundant life here and now. The only thing that propels me on to marketing is wanting my husband home full time as he has worked steadily for 44 years now. He needs a semi-retirement job and if I do well he can have it.

So how about you? Do you have any enjoyment time? Do you have a list of things you can do in a break for an hour or two midday?

The idea is that if you have something to look forward to midday that it will spur you on to hurry and get through your deadlines. I will have to cut back on all my pleasures and include some good old honest work for goodness's sake.

Try what you need to do and the Lord will bless your leisure time as well. Send me your list if it differs from mine but please no offensive stuff as some have done to the aforementioned author.

One Year Anniversary

One year ago in May I started a Blog with no knowledge of how it works here on Blogger.
I find it very refreshing to write about things and people that are so important to me.

The learning on the internet is really like a fountain of youth again because you can go in any direction with it and learn even more.

I started a home business, writing articles, communicating via email and studying a lot about health and wellness. Wow! You could spend your life doing all of this and become very addicted to all of it.

I pray for balance in my life but struggle with the temptations to use too much of my valuable time on-line. I guess we all wrestle with our slots of hours, minutes and yes even seconds. I read that every interruption makes it longer to get through your actions as restoring focus is slow.

Being a grandma, mom and wife is a full time experience especially in summer. I love it when I get to query my little ones and my 18 year old grandson alike. The answers are priceless and delightful. Their perspective on all things is wonderful.

Happy anniversary to me! Thanks to Blogger I am more fulfilled. Thanks to Jesus, I have something to say and thanks to Ezine Articles I have readers as well .It is all sooooo good.
