Follow Me!

Today I read about how Jesus said to
one of His disciples in Matthew 8:22,
"Follow me, and let the dead bury the dead."
Jesus was emphasizing that we should know
our priorities, our purpose, our mission.
Then and only then will our schedules,
our plans, our responsibilities fall into the right places.

Yesterday, the reading was from the Gospel of Mark:
A woman who had been sick for 12 years
touched the edge of Jesus' clothes.
Jesus said, "Daughter, your faith has saved you.
Go in peace and be cured of your affliction."

On Saturday, the story was also from Matthew 8.
A centurion pleaded with Jesus to heal his servant.
He said that Jesus did not have to go 
to his home, but that He should only say the word,
and his servant would be healed.
Jesus was impressed with the centurion's faith.

I have been confessing healing verses
because my knee suddenly developed
what the doctor said was either
bursitis or bone necrosis.
It says in Proverbs 4:20-22
that the Word of God is medicine for our bodies.

We either believe that or don't believe it.
Do you?

Thank you for all your visits
and wonderfully generous comments.
I know how difficult and time consuming it is
to leave a comment!
Sometimes it even disappears!
So as a sincere thank you for your kindness,
I thought of picking one of you every week,
to receive a little gift.

This week, I'll be sending 
Karen Smithey of Art in the Garage
an email and ask her to choose from 
the ATCs above.

I love blog parties!
Won't you join us?

  5. God's Word is Medicine and confessing it is good. You may also want to make a tea with a Tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar and a Tablespoon of honey one cup daily. My Dr said Old age is doing this to me but we can use wisdom too.

  10. Patsy--the pictures that pour out of you are such windows to God. and YES! Here's what I believe today:
    II Corinthians 5:21
    “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us,
    so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

  13. This is my first time reading your blog and I am so amazed with your artwork. This is the kind of art that I dream about doing. I also have been reflecting on Sunday's gospel reading about the woman healed by Jesus by a single touch. Thanks for the visual to go along with the reading.

  14. Patsy -- I love your heart and I do believe that He can heal you. Praying for your knee, for total and complete healing, friend.

  15. Your artwork is so beautiful...just like your heart. Thank you for sharing. I will pray for you to be healed.

  16. We are neighbors at SDG. The story of a woman touching Jesus' cloak is a favorite of mine. His compassion and grace for her is evident. At a time when women were not considered important, He turned to her and made her important. Great post!

  17. Yes! I believe it and I am in agreement with you.

  18. Hi Patsy! LOVE your work and the messages they share. Have a great week ...

  19. Great works and verses this week! Have a blessed week!

  20. I have always love the story of the sick woman who reaches out and touches the hem of Jesus robe. I just read it this week, too.
