Monday Manna - Philippians 3:10-11...

"I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead." - Philippians 3:10-11

Walking with Jesus
Listening to His every word
Basking in His holiness

Feeling fear at His capture
Worrying about the unknown
Finding comfort in His Father

Sorrow at His suffering
Love for His sacrifice
Anger at His leaving

Freedom through His pain
Release from all sin
Peace because of Jesus.

  1. Hi Paula! I really enjoy reading your blog and am so thankful for all that you provide for us in the way of scripture or poems etc.

    Has your girl been lying on the 'purple carpet'? It is such a sweet time of year here, isn't it? And it is so lovely when the children start to notice what's around them...

  2. I also meant to say, I'd love to share my neck of the woods with you one day in person... no reason why we can't, hey. Not like we need to purchase an airline ticket!!! And, I'm looking forward to this weeks study and what I'm going to learn there. Was going to start tonight, but am feeling a bit weary... Excuses, excuses. Hope you have a great week too.
