A lot has happened since 2012, I returned home to help with my mom, she has since gone home to heaven. Miss her still. It was a year ago June 19th. Before she passed I was diagnosed with cancer. Yeah that's what I said, diagnosed with cancer, me! Can you believe it. Me either. Double mastectomy on August 17th, 2014. Yes I have had the reconstruction. So, I am home now. I live on my sister's property in the house she built for my mom. She has been so good to me. It is amazing.She's amazing.
Before I left for Mexico, the Lord had given me a Psalm to memorize (yeah can you imagine me memorizing anything). It is Psalms 116. It is a beautiful psalm, but it is verse 7 that holds me.
It says; "Be at rest once more oh my soul, for the Lord has been good to you." I am not sure what version this is . Most versions including NIV and NASB say "Return to your rest..."
Anyway, however you want to say it, I am reminded how much He loves me, how good he has been to me. Yes, I can rest in that. God Bless and later taters.

We read in Genesis 2:16-17 where God speaks to Adam:
And then further down in Genesis 3:1:
Like Eve we have chosen our own way. And we know, our eyes are opened, it is death!
But God has, since the beginning, God has provided the way.
Our answer lies in the the Tree of Life, which is Salvation in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our answer lies in Christ alone!
by your self-gratification – self-satisfaction – self-aggrandizement.
If you have never come to the end of yourself, and acknowledged before God that you are a sinner in need of a Savior, and you so desire salvation today, begin by calling out to Him now.
Join me as I pray:
Today someone may read these words and feel within their heart the longing and desire to surrender their lives to you. I pray O King and Creator, that You do what only You can do and lead them in that one and only way. That they might repent of their sin and rejection of Your Son Jesus Christ. That they may receive Him into their life. Father. I trust that as by Your Holy Spirit You have begun this good work of salvation in their lives, that You will also complete it. I pray You will lead them to a good bible believing church, that they may grow in the knowledge and grace of Christ Jesus. Amen

This loose woman from this drunken town made a difference in her life, as well as in the life of the place she lived, Sychar, drunken town that it was.
Look at verse 26 through 30. Jesus said to her. I, Who speak with you, am He....Then the woman left her water jar and went away to the town. And she began telling people, Come! See a man who told me everything that I ever did! Can this be the Christ, the Messiah, the Anointed One? So the people left the town and set out to go to Him.
Did you see it? She left her water jar and went!
That which had driven her into the heat of the day, that which she once thought would quench her thrist and wash her over and over again, no longer held her in bondage.
She left her water jar to go and share the Living Water of Salvation.
There is nothing in the life of a believer that should come so easily as saying. Come, to my church, hear of Christ, who has changed my life! I do not understand it all, but one day He spoke to my heart of all I have ever done. He showed me that I am a sinner, and knowing in my heart that He was correct, I said, Yes! I am! He then showed me that as I am guilty of sin, there is a penalty that I owe. A penalty I could not afford to pay. I agreed with him that I was destitute and could not pay. Then I rejoiced when He said, Come to Me! For I have already paid. Come and see this God that has provided a lamb in His Own Son. Won't you Come?
Now, no longer a loose woman, enslaved by alcohol or sex, or whatever else may have held you or me in bondage.
Now and forever, a child of the King.
The Secret You may have missed, Principal #7 Share what God has done for you. Just do it! Just open your mouth and say, Come to my church, and hear of this Christ who has truly changed my life.
See as you walk in, and share the Truth, see the chains of bondage fall away.

Anyway, As I reread John chapter 4 I kept going back to verse 19: "The woman said to Him, Sir, I see and understand that You are a Prophet." (Amplified).
As this drunken sinful and loose woman from a drunken town would not be driven from the well, spoke with Jesus, she began to get a glimmer of the light of Whom it was that she spoke with.
I think I kept going back to this verse because I had heard it said that this statement was the woman's attempt to draw Jesus away from her sin.
That maybe so, except she had already confessed to Jesus. Agreed with His assessment of her life.
Now she seems to have that growing desire in her heart to worship, as Jesus said, "...you samaritans worship what you do not know." John 4:22
And, how could she, how could we not, desire to worship, to truly worship, when IN His revealed presence? Even when we just don't know, just don't understand...
You know Jesus didn't stop there. He also said to this thirsty woman, "...a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth.
So let me ask you, when was the last time you sat down with the Father, allowed Him to pour His Word over Your life,
Reveal your sin,
Then as you come into agreement with His assessment of your life,
and with joy umexpressable in any other way, simply Worship Him?
So I will end with principal #6 for removing the shackles from your life.
Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. Worship Him on your knees or upon your face. Worship Him as if He is your God.
That is who He is.
God Bless you my Sister's in Christ. I covet your prayers.
