Mama 's gonna sow some oats

This morning I served Quaker Oats to Mama and Aunt Sybil.Ma liked them so much that she wants to plant some oats in the garden

I just looked at her and said to myself ;"Oh yeah that 's a good blogging idea"
But yes friends I must confess that I 've sown a few wild oats in my day too and have received God 's forgiveness.When I reflect on my life I feel I have fallen short of God 's glory many times and brought shame to His Name.Many times I 've felt the devil laughing at me and accusing me. And I 've asked the Lord to cover me with the blood of Jesus.Please pray for me I desire to spend more time in prayer.I also need to be patient with myself and others.I am just an earthen jar with many cracks...the Author and Perfecter of my faith is Jesus and I need to work out my salvation with fear and trembling.
1 John 1 ;9 is one of my favourite Bible verses...'If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. '
I really miss our Bible study group.We used to meet for Bible study and prayer and worship every week. Now they are not meeting near my home as people are busy with their work, families or church.The other group meets quite far away across the river and there is no one to drive me there.I long for that fellowship.I have a huge transport problem, I am unable to get to places where people meet for fellowship.
Blessed are they who can meet with other believers for prayer and Bible study.

4 Fertilize my soul:

I too feel like the earthen jar with many, many cracks. :)

Yes Pai, its an upward struggle with many slips and falls along the way. But its better to be cracked pot than a whitewashed tomb.

You are right, my friend! I'd choose the cracked pot ANY day over the whitewashed tomb!

We all fall short - day after day - but for grace & for forgiveness. Praying for you from the other side of the world my friend!
