lessons of life

So, today I go to work wondering what challenges I'll face. I've been at the Insurance Agency for about 3 1/2 months now and I've just scratched the surface (I feel). My boss assured me that I don't have to worry and just to think of it as going through labor pains ..comforting huh! Every time we learn new things it takes much practice, exercise, patience, endurance, and well growing pains if we want to really be good at it, that is.!  It's very good how The Lord allows these physical things in life to bleed out in other areas where we can become more like Him. I am privileged and very thankful to have this job in this season of my life. God is so good to me! His rod n staff truly is a comfort! ..And His work papers and homework in this "school of life" is as well!
Christ presents you a cross and He never promises it will be easy — but He promises it will be worth it. ~Voscamp   ...sooo worth it (I added)

This morning I get this phone call, the voice sounded calm and somber "My daughter was killed this morning in an a car accident. I wanted to know what to do with my insurance, this is a valley for me". I didn't expect to get such a phone call. ..was killed this morning??  Life is so quick, so short! ..alive then gone in an instant! She was so young! The pain! Oh, help me Father to be Jesus hands, feet, tongue, ears, eyes, and heart in the office (I pray).
I told him I will pray for him and the family. I was thankful I didn't try to just sound professional (like I try to at times) and had my mind focused on the busy ways of life but that God allowed me to be ready 'in season or out' to give words of comfort on the other line. Another young women (in her 20's) was killed in a car accident last week! Life is so fleeting, were gone in an instant, like a vapor (the Bible say's)!

Lets store up treasures in Heaven where moths can't eat it, robbers can't steal it, crashes can't wreck it, death can't kill it!

He says to those who want life...
55 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.


  1. wow! that is amazing. 2 young deaths in the same week like that. Love those verses too! Some of my favorites.

    Life is like a parable. All those things He uses to teach us how to pursue HIM. :)

    Love you miss Jessica!
