Whoo Hooo! Oh, yeah! That's what I'm talkin' about! Yes and Amen!! Praise God! Preach it!......... Wonderful bloggin' for Jesus friends!!

I have been so blessed and amazed by all the words of encouragement, words of insight and discernment, words of joy and laughter, words that challenge, words that stir a deeper desire to dig for rich treasures from the Word of God, anointed words of poetry and lyrics that point to His Heart, words of friendship and love, words of faith filled prayer, words of hope, healing words, deliverence words, freedom words, prophetic words, and in other words - God is using our bloggy words in such powerful ways that I can scarce take it all in!!

Day after day as I visit your wonderful blogs, I find that my Spirit just want's to jump through the computer and give each of you a high five, ya'll!  I find my self agreeing, smiling, moved to tears, laughing, praying, filled with peace or crying out for more of Him with every wonderful blog stop!  And it's amazing how the Holy Spirit often weaves a common thread, message or scripture that "show's up" in several blogs about the same time!  How powerful is that! The God of Heaven through the Holy Spirit inspires our listening heart and mind and as we pen our bloggy words they are launched into the vast blogosphere to land at the right place and the right time to minister a word in season!!  Just this morning, the first blog I visited had a word from Heaven just for me!!  Her anointed post was filled with direction and encouragement from my Fathers heart tailored made for my heart!!  I'm sure you've experienced the same!   Hallelujah!...That's what I'm talkin' about!!  Glory to God!!

A few weeks before I started blogging last October, the Lord encouraged me with the most amazing scripture that is now my personal "blog anchor scripture"......
"I'll write the book on your righteousness, talk up your salvation the livelong day, never run out of good things to write or say.  I come in the power of the Lord God, I'll POST signs marking His right-of-way."  Psalm 71:15-16 Message (emphasis added)
He knows me - He gave me the gift of gab (I personally think gab is one of the gifts of the Spirit that Paul forgot to include....LOL! JK!!)!  I'll talk up His goodness, mercy, compassion, love, power and salvation all the livelong day and never run out of things to write or share about HIM!!  AND when my eyes fell upon the words "I'll POST" in that scripture, I nearly did cartwheels across the room!!  He knows I'll yak about Him anyplace, anytime, anywhere but last September I needed that final confirmation or Divine "push" to finally press the publish button and launch Fresh Oil Today!!!  I mean, to press the publish button was as intimidating to me as pressing the launch button for the space shuttle!!! Crash and burn or victoriously soar into infinity and beyond, yikes??!!!  But, isn't it amazing how one word from God can change everything!!

So, the flow of words penned within our blog posts that are Holy Ghost breathed upon are an amazing Divine thing!  Who knows, the words you posted today may be just the rightly designed and seasoned words to minister Salvation, hope and healing, encouragement, deliverance and peace to that precious soul crying out to God in a pit of despair from somewhere on the other side of the globe!

Precious bloggy friends, let us remain in hot, passionate pursuit of His Heart and continually abide within the the treasury of His Word and let the outflow of our Divinely ordered bloggy word's touch the hearts of every reader and bring Him Glory!!

And someday, in Eternity, while worshipping together around the throne, I can only imagine that He might introduce you to the precious ones that your words so deeply touched and hear Him say "Well done thou good and faithful blogger"!!  Glory to God!!

Uh, listen!  Can you hear it??  I think I'm hearing the sound of HIGH FIVES FROM ON HIGH!!

Keep on Bloggin' for Jesus ~ One word at a time, dear one!!


Luv, Hugs and Sweet Blessings!
Pin It!

This was so awesome and inspiring and so fun to read! You do have the gift of 'gab' It was such an easy read! Just loved every WORD!! Thank you for sending your smile right through the computer. You put a smile on my tired old face! I must get myself to bed...but I saw your snipet on my sidebar and I had to run right over here to catch the Word before I went off to deam land.

Thanks for sharing with us today. I'm so blessed to have you in my neighborhood!

Keep growing closer to Jesus

High five back at you.

Rose said...

Jackie, perhaps if you showed just a bit of enthusiasm...*wink*.

WOW, I love that verse of Scripture and more so that it was a verse God pointed out for you!

I agree, this is an opportunity to show Jesus to others and I also agree there are so many talented writers sharing the Word.

I am glad YOU are one of them! Hugs!

rcubes said...

High five sister! And amen to your post! Yes, glory be to the Master Author Who penned everything! The Blogger Who posted the Word to be etched in each hungry heart: to be encouraged, to be comforted, to be healed, to have an eternal life. No wonder that those working for Him are doing the same!

I feel the unity that comes from His love in this blogging community. And what a wonderful experience to be a part of such amazing writers for His glory! I love that Scripture you shared[from Psalm 71]! How comforting that He is posting signs marking His right of way! I call that "faith markers"...Then I know that my [our] faith is not in vain! Praise God!

Have a great week sister and praying all is well! Praying for the Lord's wisdom for His blogging children, His protection and rich blessings. To God be the glory!

Andrea said...

Praising GOD with you!!! Lots of hugs,

Who am I... said...

You are wonderful!

Deborah Ann said...

This is so encouraging! Great way to start the day. Thanks Jackie!

Debbie said...

I just couldn't agree with you more!! In fact, I just left a similiar type comment to a fellow blogger who soo touched my weary heart this morning. It is such a God thing. i believe He gave us each other in this blog world for this purpose. To encourage, comfort, bless, teach, and at times even convict. I too have laughed, cried, prayed and soo enjoyed this whole blogging experience. So a high five to you too friend, and thanks for being such an encouragement to me. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Debbie

Jacquelyn Stager said...

Oh Jackie I loved reading this post! I too have been amazed at the times there is a similar thread running through blogland. God is so big that He enfolds and inspires all of us, yet so interested in the tiniest details of our lives that we can talk to Him about ANYTHING! My blogland family has lifted me up and encouraged me at times when my own earthly family has not understood me. This is nothing short of a gift from the Lord.

Wondering how your son and daughter-in-law are doing. Been praying for these precious ones. I was just asked to take a meal to a family from our church (who I don't know) whose 6 mo. old baby died from crib death last week. Here's another gift that Paul forgot to list--the gift of tears--I think I got that one...

elaine @ peace for the journey said...

Needed your words regarding the Word and all of our words this morning.

Let's keep to it... our words, His Word, for the rest of our days.

A great word, by the way.


Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Hi Jackie,
I am so happy to 'meet' you! I love your enthusiasm for the Lord and your post put a big smile on my face. My hubby is the one with the gift of the gab in our family; that's one of the reasons why he's a preacher! Thank you for stopping by and signing up to be a follower. I am signing up on yours too so we can stay in touch. Have a beautiful day and hope to hear from you soon.

woohooo! I SO enjoyed that!

My goodness - you have me sitting here shouting in my spirit (can't shout outloud, my hubby is working right beside me)! And I just wanna put exclamation marks after everything! LOL!!!!!!

High-fiving you right back my sister. For our God is soooo worthy of all our adoration, praise, worship AND posts.

LeeAnn@Encouragement Is Contagious said...

I love that cartoon picture! It is so cool! what a wonderful and true post that this is!! I love visiting my friends here because I am always uplifted and you are so right that many times some are saying the same things from a different perspective. God knows how to get our attention and keep it doesn't He? :)
I think I just heard the Lord say "Well done though good and faithful blogger!" :)

Anonymous said...

Thank you, Jackie. I will keep my pen steady...because I know He lives I can face tomorrow. Like you, it was difficult to launch the last few months, God has shown me amazing things through this very screen. Amazing and dear men and women of God, people in need and also my needs have been ministered too. And yes, only eternity will reveal what our words and friendships have been worth.

I love you, and keep writing one word at a time.



Dawn Jenkins said...

This was so fun to read...I can hear the excitement and passion in your voice. High five sister, high five.
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a sweet comment. I am so thankful God has given us the blog world to share His Story.

Charla (SHar-la) said...

I absolutely, 100% agree with all you said in this post. I try to explain to people who don't blog the power of it, and how much it has helped me grow in my Christian walk as well as connect to others who have faced similar challenges in life as I have. Most of the time, others just don't get it unless they are bloggers, as well. Anyway, thank you for this post. And thank you so much for visiting my blog and following!

Joyeful said...

Wow!! That scripture in Psalms when read in the Message just becomes new again!!! I LOVE it!! I'm framing it up--I've just gotta keep this on my mind! You are so right that using our words to glorify Him is a beautiful, powerful, and precious thing!!

Wonderful to meet you!! : )

Marilyn in Mississippi said...

Love my blogging friends too! Y'all have made SUCH a difference in my life! God is so good to have let our paths cross as we use our words to spread His Word!

God bless! Mississippi

Carrie @

You have such high energy--it really comes across in your writing! Great post. I especially liked what you said about God moving several bloggers to write about the same things. Ive definitely experienced that as I check out what others are writing.

Ella said...

Jackie ~~
Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I so enjoyed this post. I am delighted to be blogging in this season of my life and have found such a sweet community of believers that are individually gifted and unique with their talents.

Each of us have a patina, we are each a living stone, imagine , as He places us, we are jointly fit together ....It must be magnificent! His beauty in us, His bride.

Blessings, Ella

Debra@CommonGround said...

Love this post, Jackie. It's wonderful how God connects us through the internet to encourage and share with others, and how He speaks to us through other peoples writings. I have also noticed at times how there will sometimes be a common topic among us. So wonderful to see the Holy Spirit in action. The "gift of gab"! Oh, I just love that!!!!
hugs and blessings,

Anonymous said...

What a blessing is this post! I can relate to this: it's amazing how the Holy Spirit often weaves a common thread, message or scripture that "show's up" in several blogs about the same time. I've seen it time and again.

And, yes, it will be wonderful to meet all my blogging friends around God's throne!

Leaon Mary said...

Okay, this is one of my favorite reads of all time.
The gift of GAB...
I'm lovin it.
Thanks for being such a blessing.

Cherylg said...

Yes!!!! There is soooo many inspirational blogs out there. I thank God for this new sort of ministry.

Cheryl-Calgary, Alberta said...

BIG SMILE here!!! That was a real WORD Jackie, and it was such an encouragement. The scripture is amazing and fits like a glove.

You said is all my friend, and I thank YOU for your words!!!



LisaShaw said...

Amen and Praise the LORD!!! May all that we write, think, say and do bless the LORD completely.

Encouraging sharing Jackie! God bless and keep you as you continue to be blessed to be a blessing.

Hugs and love.

achildoftheking said...


1st, I want to thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting. It's great encouragement.
2nd, I concur about the gift of gab being a spiritual gift... isn't like speaking to groups and so on?
Finally, may your day be full of all sorts of blessings that continue to flow from the Heavenly fountain.

Stacey said...

I agree - High fives all around.

Angela said...

Jackie, that was so beautiful. Thank you for your words of encouragement, your sharpening (Proverbs 27:17).

High five right back to you girl..This was a post that definitely rings true. Oh how our Father must just smile at His daughters when He sees us pouring out His Word, His love, His compassion, and His encouragement to one another and to those that need it (those He brings to our blogs without us EVEN knowing about it, but He brings them so they can be ministered too and loved and cherished through our posts and His anointing.

Kathleen said...

Amazing how one word can make such a huge difference in our lives - either for noble, or ignoble purposes. Like you, I relish the joy of words that are spoken here in cyberspace, so many of them etched to my own heart now, and for eternity.


mariel said...

So fun! I am high-fiving YOU now!! amen! I agee that God is using the blog world in powerful ways. Praise Him that what Satan intends for evil, God uses for good...even the internet!

Angela said...

Jackie, I just wanted to let you know that I mentioned you on my blog post today and shared a bit of what you poured forth from your heart here....I know it will bless so many others as it blessed my heart when I read it for the first time...Your so precious.

Lisa said...

Amen! :)
