Lesson 1 "How To Turn It Over To Jesus"

I have several posts I want to share about lessons I learned that gave me the faith I needed to completely turn my "problems" over to Jesus.

I'm the last of 6.  There are 7 years between me and my next older sister.  My mom knew I was going to be her last baby, so she babied me.  Honestly, I loved it!  Growing up, my mom was my everything.  We had and still have a very close and personal relationship.  What a blessing to grow up knowing that anything I ever "needed" my mom would provide.  As I grew, she became my rock for instruction and inspiration in each of my life stages.  

That all changed one morning with a call from my brother Frank.   "Dicky Bird, they took mom to the hospital, we think she had a stroke."   I hung up the phone and fell to my knees. "Jesus, it is your fault you gave me such a good mom that I never really needed you....but, I need you now, don't let my mom die."  Pretty honest and raw right - that's me - that is how I talk.  When you read my blog, you might not know that about me.  

Now, I know, as a blogger, "we" put our most creative and best self on here.  However, in order for me to share these stories with you, I must show you how I was "broken" so that I could learn to let Jesus be my everything.  

Lesson 1:  Learning to NEED Jesus.  

"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."  Phillipians 4:19
