Hello, my name is Jeanette, I live in a small country community on a farm that belonged to my great grandmother. I am a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. I love my family with all my heart but more than that I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is not just my Savior, He is my best friend, the one I know I can go to with any problem no matter what time of the day or night. My greatest desire is to show others just how special His love is and to share with them the peace and joy He brings to my days. I want other to realize they to can find that same peace and joy in His love for them. His love is a special love. It is freely given to all. He loves each of us the same no matter what our past has been. We all are Accepted By Grace through Our Heavenly Father’s unfailing Love and Mercy for us.
I love sharing the Word of God with others. I love art and I love to share the beauty of God’s creation through my artwork. I often write of the many happy memories I have of growing up in the country with two wonderful Christian parents. I hope you are inspired and blessed by my posts. Please share them as often as you want as all is here to glorify our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Please feel free to post prayer request and let me know by posting comments if you enjoy this site.
Over the past few weeks my heart has been heavy as I watch the changes taking place in our world. I have sat and debated with myself as to whether I should write what was on my heart. As a Christian and a woman who loves the Lord and people I feel I have to say what is on my mind and in heart. I started this site and I post pictures that I find beautiful simply to share with you the beauty the Lord has prepared for us to enjoy but most of all I post because I want to share the scriptures, the words of my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, my Savior. I know most people enjoy the uplifting verses that are shared but I have felt more and more that the Lord wants me to share the verses warning of the sins we are becoming so comfortable with. They are not to judge anyone (only the Father above has that right) but to teach as many as possible the full Word of the Lord. I believe we are drawing very close to the return of our Savior and our time may be growing short to share His truth with those who will listen.
Have I always lived a perfect life? No, but I thank my Savior everyday for his grace and mercy to me. I have been a bible study teacher for over 35 years, 20 plus years to our youth and now a teacher to our adult class. So many times I have wished I could just sit down and rest. I have thought that maybe I wasn’t doing any good, but the Lord has never given me the option to stop and rest. He put a burning desire in me to spread His word to all, to teach those who will listen, and to love all people. Those times when I have grown weary and wanted to just stop the Lord wouldn’t let me have any peace until I again returned to what He has called to do.
The Lord inspired me to start the Facebook page Accepted By Grace and he has laid upon my heart the desire to start my blog Accepted by Grace & Living A Blessed Life. I never post anything out of hate for anyone but I post out of love for all. I weep, as I know many of you do, when you see the shape our world has gotten it’s self into. Please know when I post scripture that is a warning that I am not trying to judge you or those you love. I am simply doing what my Heavenly Father has put upon my heart, to sow the seed of His Word and to pray for the harvest to be plentiful.
Jesus said far better than I ever could in John 4: 35-38 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
Jesus did the real work we as Christians are only following through with what he instructed us to do in Matthew 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
The Word of the Lord and the Holy Spirit will comfort us, lead us, and teach us all things. His Word will never return void. We need to hold to this promise as we teach by word and especially by example to those around us. Isaiah 55: 6-13 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
There will come a day for all who follow Jesus Christ when we as His people will enjoy the blessings spoken of here. Please join me in helping to spread the gospel around the world, together we can make a difference. I love each of you through Christ, our Savior. I pray each of are blessed beyond measure. Jeanette
The Lord has so much compassion for those who are lost and troubled. He has compassion on those who are physically sick but He also has compassion for those who are spiritually sick. We as humans, even though we are Christians, at times think we are so much better than those we see around us in the world. Yet the Lord in all His grace and mercy said He did not come to save the righteous (self-righteous) but to bring those lost unto the Father. Let us pray that the Lord put that same merciful heart within us so we can lead others to Christ who is the healer of all things.
Father, We come humbly before You asking You to heal our hearts of all self righteousness and instill within us a heart of love and compassion for those who are without you. Father, let Your love go forth through each of us so those lost and hurting around us can know You through our love and compassion for them. Thank You for Your mercy to us. Be with us and guide all the days of our lives. In Jesus Precious Name. Amen
Secret sin shall be revealed. No matter how much or how many times we try to hide the sins we do in darkness (secret) God will at some point bring them to light and they will be know. We can think something we are doing is not a sin but if we are hiding it from others then we know in our heart it is sin. The bible says no sin shall enter into the kingdom of God. Luke 8:17: “For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.” We cannot blame others for our sins, our sin is our sin no one else is to blame. We make the choice to sin and we are the ones who will give an answer for it. Revelation 21:27, “And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” When we have a weakness (a sin) we find ourselves giving into we need to become accountable first to God by admitting our sin, repenting and asking Him to clean up our heart. Luke 8: 14-15, “And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. (Sin destroys our fruit) But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.:” God will only bless those who have a good honest heart that are keeping His Word.
Once we admit our sin and ask the Lord to help us we then need to find a Christian person we can trust who we can become accountable to who will pray with us and help us overcome our weakness, only then will we find the strength to overcome those secret sins.
Do you ever dwell on your past or allow the things you have done in your past to cause you to feel you can’t do what the Lord has planned for you?
Often times the devil wants to consistently remind us of our shortcoming so we feel we cannot live for the Lord the way we want to. This is a lie of satan the Word of God says we as believers of Christ are already overcomers.
Revelations 2:26 it says “And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:”
Revelations 3:21 says “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”
I John 5:4-5 says “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?”
I come to the garden alone While the dew is still on the roses And the voice I hear, falling on my ear The Son of God discloses And He walks with me And He talks with me And He tells me I am His own And the joy we share as we tarry there None other has ever known
He speaks and the sound of His voice Is so sweet the birds hush their singing And the melody that He gave to me Within my heart is ringing And He walks with me And He talks with me And He tells me I am His own And the joy we share as we tarry there None other has ever known
I’d stay in the garden with Him ‘Tho the night around me be falling But He bids me go; through the voice of woe His voice to me is calling And He walks with me And He talks with me And He tells me I am His own And the joy we share as we tarry there None other has ever known
