Looking back at times of past as the tick tock carries me back
Reflections flash asking what have I done for the Love of instead of the Have to
Into the Fall I'm moving not so gently with Winter close at my heels
It's my time now and I have to leave the would have, should have in the ditch of procrastination and take the road that moves me forward with all the wisdom of back beyond in my lifetime...Zee

Musings Reflections

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works,

which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. 

Ephesians 2:10 NASB

His workmanship. The artist, the potter, the shaper of us. The fact He created us for good works and prepared us with the gifts we need to walk this way in life, it's Amazing Grace!


We can't do good works for salvation, that is not going to save us. We are saved by His Grace only and His love for us has no boundaries, even when we are disobedient His love still remains.

Love doesn't turn on and off like a light switch. Time can taint the feelings of love by too much pain and hurt that makes it hard for us to heal.

God wants us to love each other the same way He loves us. There is no room for self-centeredness in Love. It is a compromise and communication from the heart that makes relationships last through time. You can't go around saying I gave this, I did this, I helped them, that is arrogant and prideful.

God knows everything we do and He wants us to give to each other, help each other, compromise with each other from the heart and not selfishly asking what will you do for ME?
