“The art of waiting on God is like studying for a big weighted, final exam because you have to do the work and practice, along with your faith.” ~ Jon Barnes
“Good old-fashioned, individual work and responsibility creates the net for success with God’s blessings of reaping what you sow.” ~ Jon Barnes
2 Samuel 8
David’s Military Victories
“The Truth needs no apologies so enjoy your walk with God in Spirit and in Truth, with all the love you can spread around.” ~ Jon Barnes

“Pure motivation helps you to support the good ideas that God gives you to execute, with passion, purpose, and pleasure that drives your heart.” ~ Jon Barnes
The Day of Atonement

Procedures for the Peace Offering
“Managing your affairs, work, family, ideas, diet, wants, fitness, goal, and needs can really be a challenge, particularly when we treat God like Spoiled Meat, left in the refrigerator, freezer, or counter.” ~ Jon Barnes
Too often, I find myself trying to do everything, complaining, and completing nothing. Rotten meat stinks all around me and I begin to blame everyone else for my problems of hunger. Foolish thinking always starts at home first, so I make myself look in the mirror, shower, shave, and pray, so I can start all over again to better my situation. Simplicity with God in Love goes a long way with your faith and good works. Back off and hit smaller targets!
The Israelites in Egypt
“Pray that you don’t fall prey to the same mistakes you’ve made in your life throughout your life, by not letting God prepare, teach, and love you to death.” ~ Jon Barnes
I pray that we continue to worship God in Spirit and in Truth to honestly move forward in God’s master plan with simplicity, integrity, humility, and reverence, like a child playing in the grass with their Dad!
Do you respect God’s wishes, wisdom, and ways of prayer or you are just playing the fool’s game of solitary, personalized poker faces of lies and deceit?
