"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.

God is NOT Finished With Me (and others) Yet - More aMazing Grace

When I began September with my "September STRONG" post, I really was hoping to share more throughout this month of September & more about JESUS STRONG!

My intention was to proceed into October and this final quarter of the year, sharing more on the 2021 Word of Strength (being Strong) through so many Bible verses, yet truly God isn't finished with me still. So, not realizing this fully and what that might entail upon finishing that short 5 day sample plan "Jesus Strong" from Lisa Whittle, I ordered and received promptly her book, thinking it was her new book, only to find out that "The Hard Good" is her newest, "Jesus Over Everything" before that, and that " Put Your Warrior Boots On: Walking Jesus Strong, Once and for All" was written and released back in 2017 - Not that this takes away anything from the value of this book and me reading it, since I totally loved the sample and knew I wanted to read more, so I have it, began reading it...

BUT I was so easily sidetracked once again by another offer of two books being released in October. Both of these books just so happen to not only be in what I call 'my month' ... but also they are about my 2021 Word: Strength/Strong and I was being given the chance to receive and review the books from the Publisher. I couldn't decide which one ... so God did! I will be reviewing that book in the near future, on or before its release date of October 12th. The *other book, not sent, is also from a well-known author that I like, but would have been one that I should have been using for this entire year since it's a 365 day devotional. There's not much left to this year, and although there's much still to gain about Strength, I already know this will not continue to be my One Word for 2022 because I have another one waiting. Anyways, I did read a 3 day sample devotion of the other book in a You Version plan and may consider getting it still in my Kindle when it releases on October 19th. As you can see, I have not revealed either of these new releases, nor their authors. But since I am reading one to review, you will find out that one soon enough. And the other, I will mention after that. 

As we wrap up the month of September, I am also wrapping up the 4th Week in "Take Back Your Life" but not to worry, I still have two more weeks in this 40 day interactive journey to "thinking right so (I)you can live right". Truthfully, I am not really doing very well in this at all. Week 5 is "Be the Difference" and then Week 6 will be "Think Right, Live Right" - so there's still hope for me as I continue & finish each day with the "Breathe, Think, and Live" section, with many questions to ponder & if you were doing with a group - to discuss. For me, this has been a very personal journey and currently looks like I will need a "re-do" of this book. I need to journal more of my ponderings and thoughts as I had intended to do when I started because "this is more than a book;" (as the back of the book reads) "it's an intimate self-analysis tool that helps you recognize what's weighing you down or holding you back and equips you to embrace it head-on ..." AND I am not doing this, as I hoped to so that I can "... become the best version of" myself. In fact, my failing to even interact as I planned is an indication to me that I just wasn't ready to "take back my life". Yes, I was serious about it and that this year of STRENGTH would be the year that I could perhaps handle something like this, however as I read, I discover ... I need to be & stay committed to this immense LIFE task (which I haven't been) and come to realize that I am Stronger than I think and only in God's Strength for Each Day will I be able to think right & live right. Hopefully and prayerfully, that day, my day, is coming soon in Jesus' name
