Jesus CrossIt’s Five Minute Friday again …  FMF + 31 Days of Writing = A Five Minute Daily Journey to Healing in the Word!

Check at the bottom of the post for links to ALL of the blog link ups for this 1st of these Very Special FMF posts! My plan for these special FMF posts in October is to do my best to use Kate’s prompt within my chosen 31 day theme ^^^.

Kate chose an awesome one this week …

Let’s Go with this weeks prompt! NEW …

Yesterday I shared my Heart Story with y’all. The scripture was Ezekiel 36:26 … the promise of a NEW heart! I actually first got that scripture when a dear friend had a heart attack a few years before my heart event. It was the first scripture the Holy Spirit ever “brought to my memory” as we are told would happen when we diligently re-NEW our minds with God’s Word, putting it  into our hearts.

Ezekiel is now one of my favorite books. I actually did a term paper on the book for bible college, not easy.

Scripture says to re-New our minds: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2

Romans is my other favorite book!

Renewing our minds in the Word truly creates in us a NEW heart. Re-Newing softens and strengthens our hearts simultaneously with God’s truths and promises. It creates us aNew. It changes our minds and our attitudes and our view of things. Bringing light to our understanding.

Re-Newing our minds helps us to see what God meant when he asked: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” Isaiah 43:18-19

You see illness is in the past. Healing was attained at the exact same time as our Salvation! When we accepted Jesus into our hearts, our hearts became NEW and we were completely healed. Restored … did you know that restoration means: NEW, better than the original!

OH! This healing promise … it’s truly attained in our body, soul and spirit by the re-NEWing of our minds in His Word.

Haven’t re-NEWed your mind today? Well, it’s a good thing God’s mercies are new every morning!

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” Lamentations 3:23-24

Stop!

Thanks for reading my friends! Now tell us what’s NEW with you! Join us … in any of the prompts below!

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
