Tricia and Grandchildren Like Reading

Hello and welcome to my blog where I share meditations from my journal. I love God and like to write about Him and His Word. I was reconciled to God through His Son Jesus Christ many years ago. Although I’ve made many poor choices in life, God has been faithful to me through the years. Now I want to walk closer to Him each day.

I hope my “Journal Jots” will help people to come to Jesus, to receive His salvation, and/or to be encouraged in their walk with Him.

The devotions I share belong to me, and I’d be glad for you to use them or share them with others as long as they aren’t used for financial gain and if proper credit is given.

If what’s written blesses you, I credit God’s gifting. If not, I acknowledge my imperfection.

Yours in Christ, Tricia

  1. Hi, Tricia! I found you! It was great meeting you today on zoom. What a beautiful website you have! Thank you for sharing your heart and love for Jesus! Blessings all ways!

  2. “If what’s written blesses you, I credit God’s gifting. If not, I acknowledge my imperfection.” What a perfectly balanced perspective on your writing. Blessings 🙂

  3. Just adding my paw print. Hope all is well with you, and thanks for dropping by to see me.

  6. Hi Anne,
    Thanks for your comment. Actually I do share my own thoughts often. If I’m sharing a blog post from someone else, I try to include in the post title “Link to…” I probably don’t write my posts as often as I should, but I’ve had a little trouble making time for both reading and writing. I’m sure God will help me find the balance He wants for me so I can fit more into His plans and purposes.
    Richest blessings,
    P.S Oops! I looked back at the last post I wrote sharing my thoughts and see it was April 17! You’re right. It’s been a while since I shared my own heart instead of what someone else said. As I said, I’ve been having trouble balancing reading and writing time. Thanks for reminding me to make time for writing.
    In His love,

  7. Thank you for sharing, and God bless you.

  8. Thank you for sharing Tricia, so beautiful, God’s Love and Mercy are eternal and His Redeemed Children are very close to His heart.

    Christan Love Anne.

  9. Thank you Tricia for joining up with me on Kingdoms Garden, I don’t visit there often but hope to do so more in the future. I’m looking forward to your sharing more of your Journal Jots, I hope you don’t mind me asking Tricia but how and when did you decide to follow our King of Kings.

    • Hi Annie,
      I don’t mind your asking, but I don’t remember for sure how I came upon your blog–probably a link from another blogger I follow. I think the first one I read was about creation-evolution and the God-idea that helped you teach youngsters the truth of God’s creation. It was very good and a topic of great interest to me. My blog-following stats say that I started following on July 29.
      God bless you,

      • Wow Tricia I sure confused you, I should have said our Lord and Saviour or Jesus Christ, I refer to Him at times as our King of Kings because He is called by that name is Scripture ( see below ) I was asking how did you first learn about Jesus and when did you commit to Him, sorry I will need to be carful or others may think I’m referring to my Blog too.

        Revelation 19: 16 And he hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.

        • Oh my! Now I understand. I think I was about 10 or 11 when I first asked Jesus to be my Savior. My older sister made her commitment to Jesus after church one Sunday morning, and my mom asked if I wanted to do that too, and I said yes. I was baptized the next week and really tried to live as a Christian after that. However, I didn’t know and didn’t find out until many years later that I was only partially committed to Him–I would go His way to a certain point and then try to make things work my way. In my late 20’s I experienced God’s love in a fresh way, and His Word came alive for me, and I’ve loved the Scriptures ever since. I think I was in my 40’s when I had a major experience of repentance where I saw that I wasn’t completely committed to the Lord. Then I told Jesus, “Okay, from now on, as much as I know, I will say ‘Not my will, but Yours be done.'” I believe God had His hand on me all those years from the time I first made that partial commitment, and He draws me closer and closer to Himself. I still stumble though and have to ask His forgiveness often for self-focus and other failures. I’m 65 now, and trying to learn to listen to God and obey Him more quickly.
          God bless you,

    • Oh I wish we could share tea in person also! Who knows, though, maybe at the King of Kings’ banquet, there will be tea as well as wine for us all to share with Jesus. (Grin) At any rate, I know I’ll meet you there if not before.
      Many blessings and love–Tricia

      • You’re right. And heaven will be wonderful because we’ll be with our Lord Jesus forever and ever. And I loved the “God speaks–I listen” post about Jesus returning soon. I hope our blogs help more and more people to be ready.
        God bless you.
