"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."~from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

APOLOGY to READERS who followed a SEARCH to HERE & didn't find it

On July 18, 2017, I drafted almost 3000 blog posts that I had published since 2008 when I began blogging, rather than edit each one. So if you clicked here from somewhere else and ended up with the post unavailable or error, I am sorry but this is why. It'd be too much work for me to go back and fix them. There's an explanation on 7/19/17 as I'm still learning.

Study On SONday

This week I am setting aside all the studies that I shared last week, to go back to "Whispers of Rest" Book Club once again, because this week is an important section for me and my 2017 One Word: Healing ... and after my week last week, this could not have fallen into place at a better time than now ... so as much as I'd love to share P31 OBS of Jennifer Rothschild's "Me, Myself and Lies" today; and Lifeway Women's OBS by Beth Moore "Entrusted" either Mon. and/or Thurs.; and Faith/Study Gateway's OBS with Anne Graham Lotz on "The Daniel Prayer" for Fri. as I managed to do last week - God called me aside and told me, for now, this week just focus on "Healing" ... as I'm SOAKING On SONday because at this point, I have not read ahead to know all that comes in these days in Bonnie's book, but this week is:

as the

"...Turn Brokenness into Beauty:
Experience a Deeper Intimacy with

Jesus whispers:

" I am making all things new. I will heal your brokenness into beauty."

Isaiah 43:19

Today should be Day 21 with Bonnie
but I will be doing each day
a day behind here so
this Monday
I'll be doing day 21

Day 22 Tues
 Day 23 Weds
 Day 24 Thurs
Day 25 Fri
 Day 26 Sat

{so if you are actually following along with Bonnie's Facebook
I think I will be 1 day off from what day she sends or shares in her book club and emails}

my reason is so I can do each day and contemplate 
on what I may decide to share or not
without thinking about publishing a post
since it's about my intimacy with Jesus and healing
but we'll see what happens
at least I will present
each day
for that day
{which is all I have set up each day in draft}
if they publish without anything else but that, know that I will be returning to that post and adding by that day's end

As I have written here often
each of us need
in one way or another

"... the wounds that once hurt you may still hold you back..."
Bonnie Gray, "Whispers of Rest"

and I might add that those same wounds
may resurface again because they still hurt
for some reason or another
we still need the
as we meet with Jesus this week
through Bonnie's devotionals
she will guide us to meet
Jesus in His most
vulnerable moments
wit reflections that invite Him into ours
to begin healing the feelings
of fear, shame, rejection
in the loving presence
of our Healer, our Savior
our precious Lord

we are not alone
in whatever we face
let's open our heart

Jesus is still the Healer!

if you are blessed so much
that you don't need any healing
this will be an opportunity anyways to
deepen your intimacy with Jesus

I, for one, in fact, thought I was done with any healing I needed quite a while ago, yet I have found there are areas I perhaps never really healed ... but either forgot or stuffed them away so I could just go on with my life journey, then a "whisper" or worse a reminder, stirs up the pain or the wound and the need for healing to wash over you once again - God is not finished and He has His reasons and a special healing balm for you as you draw near and open up those wounds, see the scars, feel His touch, listen to His soothing whispers in His Word to you as His Beloved ... in whatever your situation, state of heart and mind, He desires you to find healing from the past, present or even future in the palm of His hand. Let us come to Him ...
