Hey! Ya'll! "Blogaversary" Video!

Hey ya'll!

It's Fresh Oil Today's first anniversary today and I'm finally doing a video post!  Please take a moment and view my video of thanks and prayer for YOU sweet bloggin' friends and then read my "re-post" below that really expresses my heart about this bloggin' for Jesus adventure we are on.......


March 8, 2010

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!

On one of the blogs I visited the other day, it had a tag you are it question game, and one of the questions were:
"What qualities do you look for in a friend?', and I did give an answer, but if your Video blog was posted first, I would have answered " Anyone who is like Jackie" I'm referring to you. Your video was so sincere, heart felt, sense of humor, and most importantly your love for Jesus really glorifies Him. I love! your accent, you are simply adorable. Sorry this comment is soooo long, but just a few more things.
A quote I read years ago and saved came to mind after watching your video, it is as follows:
"May His Beauty rest upon me as I seek the lost to win, and may they forget the chanel, seeing only Him," --K. WILKINSON, I found this quote at www.middletownbiblechurch.org.

As you already know, my blog is about 1 week old. I posted a new poem earlier this evening, and about 4 hours later I returned from Bible study and re-read, deleted it, made modifications, & then posted it again, so hopefully no one has viewed the first post. I apologize again for this 5,000 word post. I will stick to 30 words or less from now on.
God Bless!

Beth.. One Blessed Nana said...

well happy blogaverary to you my friend! it has been almost 2 years for me and i love every minute of it!

Janette@Janette's Sage said...

What a great post...and vlog...I haven't tried that yet...my Texas accent would really come through.
First I have to say I was nodding my head through almost all of the vlog...saying yes, yes in my spirit. I feel you hit it on the nail.

I am still trying to understand what all this is about...but as I told my husband it seems to me to be a piece of heaven. I see the church of Acts coming through this blog world...I see the dividing lines falling down, Praise God...I see and have had needs meet through this blogging world...from people who I may never meet.

I am also so in love with seeing the body of Christ all over the world. I may never even fly again in a plane, or leave my state, but I have met the Body of Christ in areas of the world I could only dream about.

Congratulations on your blog...thank you for allowing me to follow and glean from you! Thanks for this post...BRAVO!!!

Deb said...

I love your video...maybe some day I'll get up the nerve to do that, too!!! Thanks for stopping by Jeremiah 29:11 and leaving such sweet words and following me...I'm your newest follower, too.

Dianne said...

Dearest Jackie,
I am so so glad to meet you and join hands and heart in our journey with the Lord.

How awesome that it was today and I got to view your great video. It really blessed me because I feel that it was genuine, sincere and totally from the heart of God.

Thank you for your ministry through blogging.

Jackie dear,
I read your repost last niht ton the ipod - but it didn't allow me to see the video. So I camne tonight on the laptop. This post was one of my very favorites. I had jsut become your follower. It was so uplifting - just like your every word in evry post since.

I loved seeing you and hearing you on the video today but most of all I just allowed myself to be bathed in your heartfelt prayer. I received it personally and you touched - in the spirit - many things that I myself have been asking the Lord for. I'm so proud of you for trying the video. It really does help me feel more connected to you. thank you for your courage! Thank you for your heart. Thank you for your encouragement. thank you for allowing the Lord to use you. Congratulations!!

hugs, my frined

So glad for your anniversary in blogging and for the crossing of our paths! You are a precious sister in Christ, and one I count on for prayers. May God continue to sow his good seed via your heart and pen in the next year to come. I look forward to hearing about what he has purposed and promised to do in your life.

Much love,


Cindy - Letters From Midlife said...

Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comments. I'll enjoy reading through your posts as well!

Sharon Kirby said...


What a wonderful post!! It was just SO encouraging to me. I was just telling someone the other day, how powerfully the "enemy" uses the Internet - how he is the prince of the power of the air. But then I proclaimed, "But our Lord is the KING!" I think God is using blogging as a POWERFUL tool to get His words out. I, too, have been amazed at how often so many of us seem to be "on the same page" as to the topics that the Holy Spirit has us speaking on!

And how I just loved your final thought - "Well done thou good and faithful blogger." I'm writing that one down...and claiming it!!

Jackie, I'm so glad that we have found each other - and I look forward to what God will bring to me through the words on your blog!

Keep up the good work - GOD BLESS!

Crown of Beauty said...

Congratulations dear Jackie on your first blog anniversary!

We Christian blog authors are reclaiming the ground and the air from the hands of the enemy, and we continue to speak life and light to come against the death and darkness that is so prevalent on cyberspace.

So I want to encourage you to keep on blogging and POSTing for Jesus!

Your blog is always such a place of encouragement and hope and life!


Jackie said...

I am so honored to be bloggin' for Jesus right along side of ya'll

Let's continue to spread His love and encouragement through our blogs and draw one another closer to His Heart and bring Him Glory!!!


Love and Big Bloggin' Hugs!!

Cathy said...

Beth E. said...

Andrea said...

AMEN..AMEN...and AMEN! from one southern gal to another. WOW..GOD so touched my heart listening to your prayer for each of us, your bloggy friends! Indeed, HE is faithful! I love you and I praise GOD for bringing you into my life.

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

PS: Happy Blogoversary!

SS Firedancer said...

Wow Wow and Wow a Wow I am totally gob smacked as they say here in Jolly 'Ol but you have to remember to say it "gaub smact" with a little English la de da in order to understand my heart.
Thank you so much Jackie for re-publishing this post and for the awesome video. I am so blessing you right now and praying that Pappa pours out more of His love and anointing on you. Even as I write tears are streaming down my face in gratitude to our wonderful Lord for having connected us via the "Blogoverse (sounds like universe)" or should I say the "Heavenly Blogoverse" because I know this is a divine connection that I sooo appreciate.
Thank you for the prayers and the words of encouragement and Happy "Blogaversary to you" Write on Sista Write on. You have certainly jumped the pond and touched my heart.
I too am praying for you and standing with you as we reach out to touch the world with the awesome love of Jesus.
Grace Peace and Love,
Firedancer aka Soroya
