Wisdom from the Spirit

There is change happening. 
I feel it in my bones.
I can see glimpses of it.
It is a good thing.
I recognize the Spirit moving.
I am ready for the growth.
I have prayed for it.
I need it.
I desire it.
I welcome it.
I am spending time
in his presence and his word.
I pray for insight into God's plans,
thoughts and actions,
through the Holy Spirit.
I want God's secret wisdom 
from the Spirit.
I want to claim 
the "mind of Christ".
Through intimacy with him,
I can.

"No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
what God has prepared for those who love him"
but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2: 9,10


  1. Oh, my goodness...what is up with the anon commenter above me?

    I wanted to tell you I love that verse in your post. I am 19 weeks into a 28 week study on 1 + 2 Corinthians and I have learned so much.

    Have a lovely weekend, Janie!

  2. This is the 2nd time John Rambo has left this comment on my blog. He has left it on others also. However, we are not allowed to comment on his blog. I call chicken on this. I do not know this man, but his generalizations sicken me. He obviously needs prayer. I am fairly certain as a 500 lb pound man living in his parents basement he is bitter.

  3. Bring on "the rain"!

    (Do you know there's a way to reject comments you don't want to publish?)

    And are your ears "ringing"? You're all over my blogs today. I ♥ your style; I ♥ your ♥!

  4. I'm glad you left that anon comment up Janie. His ignorance and negativity needs to be exposed. Perhaps next time he will actually read your words on your post and take them to heart. Ann

  5. Apparently ol boy up top has never been to my clean house to eat my made-from-scratch meals. I'm afraid it's the language barrier that has saved his ass in the relationship department. If only he knew just how obsessive compulsively neat you are and how long you've been married to dad he might have passed on this particular blog. I believe "you can't reason with stupidity" really sums it up.

  6. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  7. I am here by way of Rebecca's blog ...thanks for sharing his is always a blessing to me...plan to visit you more...Shelley

    Beautiful video...

  8. Janie,
    I am ecstatic for you, that you are feeling the closeness of God and the spirit moving in your life. Few feelings are as awesome as the breath of God and His hand at work. I'm praising the Lord for you, and pray this continues. I love you, and can't wait for our double date tomorrow night!

    Mr Rambo,
    I'm perplexed that you would choose not only this blog, but this particular post to impose your beliefs on a community who neither seek nor agree with your opinion. I would like to humbly suggest that you look for your joy and your fulfillment in the only one who can give it...your creator. Perhaps if you'd focus on the Lord, and making yourself like Him your little Gordian knot with "American Women" would magically work itself out. God Bless.


Thanks for reading my blather. I read every comment. They make my heart happy!
