brentlwhite. “Have no concern for your goods, for the best of all the land of Egypt

“Have no concern for your goods, for the best of all the land of Egypt is yours.” Genesis 45:20 Last week I watched Martin Scorsese’s new film, The Irishman. I think I now understand the appeal of gangster movies: because I want to know the favor of someone who has the power and resources to get things done for me—who would enjoy doing so. And if I had such a person in my life, I would gladly give him love and loyalty in return. (Of course, I might also live in fear of crossing him, because mobsters in movies, if not real life, are capricious, to say the least!) Not to compare the Pharaoh to a mob boss, but something like this is happening in today’s scripture. Jacob and his sons have found the favor of a seemingly all-powerful, eminently resourceful benefactor. And they’ve done so not on their own account, but on account of their relationship with Joseph. I’m jealous! But not so fast. If we’re in Christ, aren’t we in a similar position—only infinitely more so? As Paul writes, “So let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, and you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s” (1 Corinthians 3:21-23). These words are astonishing: Do all circumstances, all events, all people, and all things—through God’s sovereign hand—serve me and my interests? And not just me, of course, but everyone who is in Christ? How is this possible? Yet, how could it be any other way? “We are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.” I’m reminded of a quote, which I can’t find at the moment (I think it’s Robert Farrar Capon), which reads something like this: “We are so bound up with Jesus that if the Father wants his Son, he gets us, too.” As with Jacob’s family, we enjoy God’s inexhaustible favor not on our own account, but on account of Jesus and his relationship to his Father. In other words, because we’re with Jesus, the Father is pleased to give us the “best of the land” and the “fat of the land”—for which he’ll spend our lifetimes preparing us. To say, as I want to say, “But I’m not worth this,” is to miss the point: I’m not worth it, but God’s Son Jesus is. #esvjournalingbible

expressivegrace. Wow...just wow 😯 Today’s #if_untousadvent really hit me in the stomac

Wow...just wow 😯 Today’s #if_untousadvent really hit me in the stomach...hard. Yes I am very thankful that Gods Word was gifted to me. It’s the light 💡 to path, the lamp 🪔 I need to make it through this dark ol’ world. Because of my belief in Jesus Christ, I have a bright shining path that He gave me. A path that leads to Him. However, many don’t have that. The god of this world (aka Satan) is doing everything possible to hide, conceal, disguise (ouch to that last one) Gods message and he’s keeping all unbelievers from turning to God. After all, that’s his job, right? We have to be that light 💡 in their path, that one who shows the truth. Not everyone will come to that light though. That’s the hard part. Satan will disguise the message as a “feel good” that doesn’t hinder your “living this life”. All we can do is pray, and allow His light to shine out in the darkness in hopes of reaching them. #expressivegrace #expressivegracebiblejournaling #bravelittletaylor #illustratedfaith #printandprayshop #esvjournalingbible #biblejournaling #mamabooclaypouch #mildliners #shopsoutherncouture

I’m having this “I need to stop” moment in life right now. Stop complaining. Stop overeating. Stop second guessing myself. Stop beating myself up. It’s a new day friends! We can change our “stops” into a more powerful message if we just rely on God. So today, instead of overthinking things, let’s take it to His feet instead. #expressivegrace #expressivegracebiblejournaling #prayerfulplanner #mamabooclay #mildliners #bravelittletaylor #illustratedfaith #printandprayshop #esvjournalingbible #dailydropsofprayer #revelationwellness #shopsoutherncouture

Today’s #if_untousadvent was an emotional one for me. I’m not sure why but I felt it was a reminder, a sweet one, that all the mercy, love, faith was given for a reason....it was a gift. “For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift —” ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8‬ #expressivegrace #expressivegracebiblejournaling #bravelittletaylor #illustratedfaith #printandprayshop #mamabooclay #mildliners #esvjournalingbible #biblejournaling #shopsoutherncouture

I didn’t get to do day 6 of the #if_untousadvent yesterday due to a busy schedule but I think God intended for it to be today. As I was reading and thinking over the scripture, my son started in on how we never let him “have” anything. He has MORE than he could possibly need, yet because I said I wouldn’t buy something he would waste, he says we don’t “give” him anything. What a minute? Have I been like that with what God has given me? I sit here in tears thinking of the ungrateful heart and attitude I’ve had for all God has given me. He gave His Son...that’s far beyond what I could ever hope for or need. He gave me salvation and eternity. I must learn to imitate Him and have a heart of thanksgiving. #expressivegrace #expressivegracebiblejournaling #bravelittletaylor #illustratedfaith #printandprayshop #esvjournalingbible #mildliners #biblejournaling #shopsoutherncouture

This morning has been...well crazy. Went for blood work (I hate needles and blood by the way) and after not being able to get a vein, almost passing out and getting sick, I came back to work without having done my labs 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️ I told them to tell the doctor he was on his own 🤣 But in all seriousness I wanted to tel you my thoughts from today...without Jesus “purchasing” our sin, we would be facing hell. Instead, he loves us enough to give us a free gift of eternal life. My sin bought death. My Savior paid the debt. My Jesus gave me eternal life. #expressivegrace #expressivegracebiblejournaling #prayerfulplanner #findwondrousthings #mamabooclay #illustratedfaith #printandprayshop #if_untousadvent #mildliners #biblejournaling #shopsoutherncouture #esvjournalingbible #dailydropsofprayer #revelationwellness

Working at home today after having a migraine all night and morning. But I still enjoyed digging into the #if_untousadvent God’s extravagant gift was His Only Son. He loved us enough to send Him to pardon us, to save us, not to condemn us. Jesus came to love us, show us who His Father is, and to make a way for us to be adopted to the family. Jesus left paradise to come to us, to save us sinners, those who are unworthy of this love. But God...those two little words always have such meaning....He gave us a gift that was extravagant, immeasurable. And He did so for those who were undeserving. #expressivegrace #expressivegracebiblejournaling #prayerfulplanner #findwondrousthings #shopsoutherncouture #illustratedfaith #printandprayshop #esvjournalingbible #biblejournaling #bravelittletaylor #mildliners #dailydropsofprayer

✅ Pit stop at Ezra during my weekend reading & quiet time. The Lord was showing me, sometimes those wanting to “build with us” are not meant to walk with us in following through with the purpose of God for our lives. Be careful who you let walk beside you in this next season. Their motives may not be pure. Stay on course and finish the call 📜 “they came to Zerubbabel and to the heads of the families and said, “Let us help you build because, like you, we seek your God and have been sacrificing to him since the time of Esarhaddon king of Assyria, who brought us here.” But Zerubbabel, Joshua and the rest of the heads of the families of Israel answered, “You have no part with us in building a temple to our God. We alone will build it for the Lord, the God of Israel, as King Cyrus, the king of Persia, commanded us.”” ‭‭Ezra‬ ‭4:2-3‬ ‭NIV‬‬ #biblegram, #bibledaily #openthebible #bibleplan #bookofezra #prophetezekiel #thebookofezekiel #documentedfaith #coffeeandbibletime #jesuslover #christianblog #christianblogger #biblestudymoments #everythingchristian #everythingjesus #jesuschangeseverything #goodnewsfeed #shereadstruth #instabible #instabibleverse #thejesusbible #kjvbible #esvjournalingbible #esvbible #nasb #amplifiedbible #cambridgebible #biblejournaling #messybible #biblesofinstagram

His own people rejected Him. The Jews, who have been the recipients of His covenants, the law, and the promises of a Messiah turned their backs on Him (well worse, they killed Him). They had been waiting for 400 years for Him. He had been silent. And when He did show up, they looked down on Him. Instead, He adopted us as children of God and heirs. 🙌🏻 What a hallelujah that is. He redeemed us. He set us free by purchasing us with His blood. We must be willing to receive Him, His gift. 🎁 We must embrace it. We must admit Him. We must welcome it all. #expressivegrace #expressivegracebiblejournaling #if_untousadvent #bravelittletaylor #illustratedfaith #printandprayshop #mamabooclay #shopsoutherncouture #wellwateredwomen #esvjournalingbible #csbstudybible #mildliners

For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. - Psalm 103:11-14‬ ‭ESV‬‬ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📖 @crosswaybooks ESV Journaling Bible
