We all gotta go through.........

I posted this on my other blog but decided to place it here as well. be Blessed.

Praise God the weekend is here!!!! runnin lapses and spiraling along the way. It has been a long week and everyday brought more cutting ... ..cutting away from my patients whom I love dearly and will miss , but I am so ret ta go. I'm working Monday and Tuesday , Wednesday will be an office day , clean up , paperwork day . I hope to roll out by noon. We shall see. I'm really going to miss the staff that I've worked with . The best nurses and office folks you ever want to meet. I have learned so much and grown as a nurse while working for Hospice.

But it is time to move forward to another phase of my crazy life. I swear I'm a gypsy . I move more than the US military.

I am preaching tomorrow and want to share a lil bit because I think it pertains to change, the move of God and purpose.

err ra umm **tappin mic** is this thing on ..LOLOL

Turn with me to John the 4th Chapter reading verses 1-4 and it reads:
Joh 4:1-4
When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, (2) (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,) (3) He left Judea, and departed again into Galilee.
(4) And he must needs go through Samaria.

I'm the type of person who loves to travel. I don't mind flying, riding the train or driving . Matter of fact I love to drive because I have control issues and there are very few people who I feel comfortable enough to drive with .I want to be behind the wheel ,feel the road under my feet and put the petal to the metal . Ahh doing on a road trip , my goal is to get there the quickest way possible . I go online or call triple A and map out my journey. Sometime even with all my years of trips, travels and planning I hit a bump in the road . Construction( Ohio ..the #1 state for CONSTANT construction on the 90) , Detours ..things that take me off the planned road of travel..

Not planned things but unplanned distractions , disruption to the journey I'm trying to take.... It frustrates me when I can't get to where I want to be , when I want to be I had a hard time trying to understand why Jesus was the only one with enough sense to take the straight away by way of Samaria to get to Galilee but after much study and contemplation I realized that everyone else...The Jews this is ..had been taking Detours ..going way out of the way to get where they were going ..Oh they had their reasons and we'll look at those in a bit ...But Jesus was determined to stay the course to complete His journey and while we sit in these text and the text to follow for the next few minutes it's my hope that we will gleam some truths that will make are Journey a little easier...

You see it says in vs 4 : And he ( meaning Jesus ) must needs go through Samaria or in todays language He needed to go through Samaria .. There was some business that he had to handle in Samaria... We also must needs go through so that we like Jesus can bring the Gift of God so someone in need.

The Title of my sermon for this morning : We all must needs go through..Will be back with the points when I'm done .
Pray for me . God bless and Happy Sabbath!
