Welcome to my Blog!

Jesus is my person...he is the one I cry to, plead with, argue with and walk with every day. He is my best friend, my wise counselor, my teacher and constant companion...my truth, my peace, my hope and the love that fills my heart. I wish I could put the glorious experience of His presence into words, but the joy of it is truly inexpressible...how do you write that? I hope you will be blessed by what I have been able to put into words. Thanks for reading. ~Vicki

“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”

                                                                      1 Corinthians 13:12

Prayer:  Father, thank you for the priceless gift of your love. Please help those who read these words to experience the infinite depth, breadth and height of your love for them. Overwhelm them with the beauty of your presence and wrap them in your grace. Fill their hearts to overflowing with your love for them. Transform their hearts and open their minds to experience your glorious joy and peace so they will begin to seek you even more fervently. There is no love on earth to compare with yours. We praise you and worship you with all of our hearts for giving us the blessing of knowing you. Please reveal yourself more fully to those who seek you, in Jesus’ name, amen

God is Love

God is patient,

God is kind.

He does not envy,

He does not boast,

He is not proud.

 

God does not dishonor others,

He is not self-seeking,

He is not easily angered,

He keeps no record of wrongs.

 

God does not delight in evil,

but rejoices with the truth. 

He always protects, always trusts,

always hopes, always perseveres.

 

God's love never fails.

~Paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Additional Scriptures:   

“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”                       Ephesians 3:16-21

 

“What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. But someone will say, ‘You have faith; I have deeds.’ Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.”                                                                   James 2:14-18
