Poison Ivy

Holy Moly! I have never had Poison Ivy in my life. I have always done yard work without any care of it. But almost 2 weeks ago, I did some weed eating in the yard. And I got hit by some poison ivy. I remember when it hit my right arm & thinking "Oh crap! That was poison ivy." A few days later a tiny spot showed up on my arm. A few days later after that...My right arm was covered in an awful rash. All of this time I was applying calamine, but it wasn't helping. My skin is so crazy sensitive. I decided that I needed to go to the doctor before it got any worse. On Thursday, I went & I had yellow blisters on my arm. They gave me a steroid shot & steroids to take. I'm having to keep a ointment on the rash, which has now spread to my chest & one small spot on my left arm. To say I have been pretty miserable is an understatement. The itching. Oh, the itching. I'm also taking benadryl like a mad woman. Hahahaha! It's slowly clearing up. Praise the Lord! But I tell ya, I will never do yard work the same way again. I'm actually terrified to do it now.

20/100

20/100 I love the fact that the Word Of God is living & active. That certain passages in the scriptures morphs into what I need, when I need it. The words impact me in different ways according to the season that I am or for that moment. It’s a guide book that is directing me, giving me comfort, filling me with excitement, challenging me & putting me in my place. 
As much as I love history. I know just how blessed that I am to be here, in this time & in this country. I think about all of the 100’s of years that the Word was not so available. You had to be a “man of the cloth” to be able to study the scripture. Most women weren’t even able to be near the it. The man of the house got to study it & then bring it home to her. How sad! I can’t imagine living life without the freedom of going to my stacks of Bibles & opening up the world of His wonders. We are a spoiled culture. The Word Of God that has been fought for is literally at our fingertips (on our phones) but yet we find our lives too busy to delve in. People are still dying around the world to have a page of scripture in their possession. Can you let your mind go there? Treasuring one page of God’s Word so desperately that you are willing to die over it?

14/100 I just love when God allows things to lineup in your life. Or clash together. This scripture was part of the sermon yesterday & here it is again in today’s devotional! God...You are just too cool, ya know it? πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» I loved this quote from the sermon... “When you are becoming more like Jesus, the life of God is increasing in you and you are being fruitful. Galatians 5 describes these fruits of the Spirit. They are what the life of God looks like in you. Love-joy-peace-patience-kindness-goodness-faithfulness-gentleness-self control.” ~Jay West

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”

13/100 I know that I have talked about this before. But I believe is this the very first scripture that I truly learned & held on to. When I was little I lived with debilitating fear. Especially at night. I can remember my Mom speaking this scripture over me in the darkness of my room, with just the glow of a night light. She even wrote it on an index card & taped it the wall about my bed. I still say this scripture almost daily. I wanted to share this with you, because if you are claiming scriptures over your children. Remember that they do not return void. They are surrounding your children. They are coming alive inside of them! Even when you aren’t seeing the fruits of it...You will eventually! Keep pressing in. Keep speaking life. Keep loving unconditionally.

The word “steadfast” has been a very meaningful one to me since I was a teen. I developed a love for it, when we had a youth choir at church & we were called “Steadfast.” I wonder how many of my old Kingwood peeps remember that? Our shirts were a shade of green sort of like the one used on my page. I had no idea then, how the word would sustain me throughout my life. I have even considered getting it tattooed. His mercies are new every morning. And His love never changes. Ever!

This is a scripture that I feel super strongly about. Everything we do. Whether it be in the grandest spotlight or the lowest menial task...Do it for the Lord. 
The dictionary describes “heartily” as —with all sincerity : wholeheartedly, with zest or gusto. —
And I will add with a joyful heart! When you are doing things with a joyful heart, it’s a bit harder to become stressed, aggravated or overwhelmed. If you feel like everything is a burden...Well, it will be. And you will feel the weight of it. So will those around you. Do I love washing dishes? No. But I think “Thank you Lord, for the husband that dirtied 15 dishes for one meal. For the food that was on them. The clean, hot water in a sink, inside of my little house. When you begin to see everything like that, no matter what it is...your perspective changes. You change. It’s a choice. One that you have to consciously make. Once you keep making that choice to do everything for the Lord, with joy...it will become second nature.
Trust me. πŸ˜˜ #lovepinklucysbible
