Sitting with Jesus

And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:6)

I love this scripture because it reminds me of how intimate my relationship with Jesus is. It reminds me of how great the love of God is. Those who are apart of his kingdom are sitting in heaven now. The scripture says GOD RAISED US; not He will raise us (Ephesians 2:1-10). Those who are apart of His family are already in heaven with Him. This gives me great joy because I get to enjoy things of heaven on earth right now (Mathew 6:10). What does this fact mean to you? Live like it’s heaven on earth. Sit with Jesus!

  1. Sassy, I wish I could get so much across in so few words! You have an incredible gift…really!

    Hope your day was good,

      • That may be true, but I’ll bet you’ve always made your words really count! How else would you have earned that nickname of yours…

        Besides, I can think of two sayings here: “Actions speak louder than words.” Also “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

        And the pictures you can paint in our minds add so much to what you say as well!

        Good job, Sassy…keep it up!

      • That’s so true. I never thought of it that way. I guess I do have a lot of words but not in a literal sense. πŸ™‚ I think I might have to make those sayings into doodles. Thanks for the inspiration!

      • Shannon, you are a wonderful example of a humble Christian woman. But that does not you “meek” in the sense in which the world see things.

        It’s quite the opposite, actually. God lifts up those who give their lives to Him, and He empowers them to bigger and greater heights all the time!

        You are coming into some of that empowerment in your life. A gentle but strong confidence about yourself and your abilities is developing within you by your choices and God’s will for you.

        Sorry if that sounds like some dumb “psychic reading,” it is certainly not. But it seems true in your life right now. Stay on God’s path and grow stronger in who you are!

        You’ll always be “Super Sassy” to me!

      • Super Sassy! lol

        It doesn’t sound like a psychic reading. You are absolutely right. I like to think of this time in my life as a training for the many great things God has planned. Thank you for the lovely compliments! I admire your ability to know all the right things to say!

        Also, your family has been on my heart. How are you all doing? I’m keeping you guys in my prayers.

      • See…what a super lady you are!!

        I guarantee that you are “maturing in faith,” and God rarely leaves us where He finds us in life. In His time, we are seasoned and prepared for certain works according to His plan.

        And thanks for asking about me and my family. I am touched that you remember our “challenges,” and keep us in your prayers.

        It is never easy to watch after an Alzheimer’s patient. It’s even harder when that patient is a loved one. Talk about being “uplifted” and cheerful each day! That is a real big order these days…

        However, it is people like you who help encourage me and put a smile on my face! For now, we are okay but it is obvious that it probably won’t be long before my mother is in need of a nursing home…or goes “home” to her Lord.

        You are just starting out in your life, and Lord willing you will walk closely to Him all of your days. I pray for such a sweet soul as yourself, that you may know success in all that you find along the way!

        I am so fortunate to know you,..and yes, you are always “Super Sassy” to me!

        Enjoy this day, my dear…

      • Thank you Steve! I’m glad we have crossed paths. You are a great man of God, with great wisdom!

        I am glad you guys are hanging in there. My grandmother had Alzheimer’s so I know some of what you are experiencing. I’m glad the Lord is your strength and you are finding comfort! I know God will continue to direct you in providing for her.

      • Hey, that sounded very positive! (lol)…

        Actually, Sassy, I know you are very sincere and a quality human being. It just comes through in your personality.

        No, I’m not saying you are “perfect,” none of us are! In fact, I kinda lost my temper in frustration this very morning! I am so glad for God’s grace…

        You give me too much credit, however. I am and always will have much more room for improvement as a person, as well as, a Christian. But I keep stepping up to “the plate” each day to take my swings! (Baseball metaphor).

        If your grandmother had Alzheimer’s, then you do know a good bit of what an ugly illness it is! And it is frustrating to try to take care of.

        But try to imagine how frustrating it is for the sufferer. I can only think it has to be very difficult for them, depending on how far along they are in the disorder.

        Thanks for “being there” for me and my family, my dear. Support mean so much and you provide it very nicely!

        God bless the one who looks after the downtrodden and sick! And He counts that as righteousness to you and all others who pray for us!

        We’ll talk later…have a super day, Super Sassy…
        Steve πŸ™‚

      • Thanks so much, my dear! How are you today? I’m not staying online today, but checked in, saw your smiling face, and wanted to say “hi.”

        I appreciate your visits and comments, and you are also part of that support “team,” I hope you know that!

        Have any plans this weekend? If you do, enjoy…

        Steve πŸ™‚
