Pajamas with Mama

These young woman all love the Lord deeply and are forever teaching this
ole bird new Biblical insights!  I thank God for allowing me to call them mine!
Truly, truly beautiful gals.

Studying the book of John gives reflection on the deep purpose in Jesus' actions. Whether he was chatting with the woman at the well, calling Lazaras to come forth from the tomb, or washing the disciples feet, there was purpose behind the process and the motive for His actions came straight 
from heaven.

When I reflect back on any random day, most of what occurred in that daily schedule was self-motivated.  Not that those were worthless actions, but I can't say they were God ordained or Spirit led.  The good things is today is another day!

"You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you."
Psalm 86:5 

"My counsel is this: Live freely, animated and motivated by God's Spirit.  Then you won't feed the compulsions of selfishness. For there is a root of sinful self-interest in us that is at odds with a free spirit, just as the free spirit is incompatible with selfishness.  These two ways of life are antithetical, so that you cannot live at times one way and at times another way according to how you feel on any given day. Why don't you choose to be led by the Spirit and so escape the erratic compulsions of a law-dominated existence?  
Galatians 5:16
