MY FAITH IN LORD JESUS AND OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER IS STRONGER THAN WHAT IS TAUGHT IN MANY MINISTERIAL PROGRAMS

I have been thinking recently how I might like to go to school for ministerial training; however, when I look at the various programs available, I find nothing that matches my faith in Lord Jesus and my understanding of His love, amazing grace on the cross and compassion -- most especially Jesus' compassion for the hurting and afflicted. The fact of the matter is that I would prefer to be trained -- as I have been doing -- by Lord Jesus and God Our Almighty Heavenly Father themselves. Many things for me -- like university teaching and advocating and ministering -- just come naturally for me -- it is part of my make-up and who Father and Lord Jesus made me to be and the gifts that They have blessed me with. Just can't seem to find a program that matches my faith in Jesus, which has grown tremendously in the past three years. IN JESUS' HOLY, BEAUTIFUL AND MOST OF ALL COMPASSIONATE NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


THE DEVALUATION AND UNDER-COMPENSATION OF COMPASSIONATE AND NURTURING LABOR BREAKS LORD JESUS' HEART AND BREAKS MINE, TOO

This is from my journal on October 6th, 2017, an issue that has been near to my heart and mind for many years and that I have written about previously. love always, Diane
People who express compassion and nurturance in our culture are devalued and under-compensated. People who are in the caring professions -- such as teaching, moms, nurses -- are not adequately compensated for their labors because we live in a culture in America that does not care for one another enough and does not properly value compassion. This situation and devaluation of nurturing, compassionate labor saddens Lord Jesus (and me) and should break our hearts like it breaks Lord Jesus' heart and breaks mine, too. Sincerely, Diane

Dear Ann and Libby and all my Facebook Friends, I truly believe that when we stand before Lord Jesus someday we will not only be judged for our faith in Lord Jesus as Our SAVIOR BUT ALSO FOR HOW WELL (OR NOT) WE DEMONSTRATED LORD JESUS' LOVE, GRACE AND COMPASSION TO THE PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES AND THAT WE ENCOUNTERED THROUGHOUT OUR LIVES. AS CHRISTIANS, JUST KNOWING LORD JESUS AS OUR SAVIOR IS NOT ENOUGH -- LORD JESUS AND GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER WANT US TO LIVE THE GOSPELS TO THEIR FULLEST AND LIVE LIKE LORD JESUS COMPASSIONATELY AND LOVINGLY LIVED WHEN JESUS WALKED THE EARTH TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO AND COMPASSIONATELY AND LOVINGLY HEALED AND COMFORTED THE SICK, HURTING, BROKEN-HEARTED AND BROKEN. LORD JESUS WANTS US NOT TO ONLY KNOW HIM AS OUR SAVIOR BUT ALSO THE CARE, LOVE AND COMPASSION THAT JESUS AND OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER SO GREATLY VALUE. WITH LOVE, DIANE
