Jesus Is Lord…

My Momma, Granny, and I went to a nearby city this week to take my Granny to an eye appointment. As we were getting ready to go, I said to them, “It is amazing isn’t it, that God already sees what time we get back and what we eat for lunch.” They both agreed. On the way there, as I was driving I noticed my Momma on her phone, busy finishing up gifts for Christmas and my Granny in the backseat was looking out the window enjoying the scenery. I was praying while driving , I usually do because interstate driving makes me a tad bit nervous, especially when I have such precious cargo with me (Granny and Momma). As I was driving, I noticed a Covenant Transport truck. These have meaning to me, because I’m honoring the Covenant I made with God on my wedding day. (Mark 10:9, Romans 7:2-3, 1 Corinthians 7:39) (And this have ye done again, covering the altar of the Lord with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand. Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. Malachi 2:13-14) I always love seeing these trucks, they always encourage me to remember the vow I made to God. I smiled and kept praying.

Minutes later I was passing a semi and I noticed the sign on the back of the truck. It had a road that had a fork in it. One way pointed to Jesus and the other pointed to sin, “Choose this day” was in the center of the road. (Which road are you following?) As soon as I passed this truck, the next semi had, “JESUS IS LORD” on the back of it. All I could do was smile and shout to my Granny and Momma about what I had just seen.

JESUS IS LORD!


The rest of the drive was full of Christian music, fellowship with each other, snacks, a good ole Mountain dew, and directions loudly spoken over the radio to get us to our destination. We arrived safely at the doctors office. Due to the COVID policy, we had to leave the lobby while my Granny got shots in her eyes. As I was heading back to the car to wait for her, I saw a lady walking towards me. I spoke “Crazy times we are living in,” she replied, “Sure is.” I said, “well one thing is for sure, God is still in control.” She said, “You got that right”. I smiled, though covered by my zebra print mask, and headed to the car to wait.


Once Granny was done at her doctor visit, we headed for the nearest Cracker Barrel (it was calling our name.) Once we got there, we settled in with our usual orders. I absolutely LOVE their mac n cheese- always a must for me! We enjoyed our lunch and browsed the goodies out front. As I was walking to get the car while my Granny and Momma waited, I noticed a car in the parking lot with a license plate. JESUS IS LORD. I smiled, it always blesses me when I see the same words twice in one day.


We went to a couple of stores looking for some fur lined crocs (I wear mine almost every single day!) We finished up our Christmas list for others and decided it was time to head back to our town. As I was turning onto the road, my Momma out of no where says, “every knee will bow, every knee.” I said, “You’re right Momma, rather they want to or not, they will bow.”


Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11

For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. Romans 14:11


The day spent with two of my favorite women on Earth was a blessing. Along with all the little “Godwinks” as I call them, it was a good day. We pulled into my Granny’s house at 6:21 and we all said “Thank you Lord.” Those two special women have always taught me to pray for safe travels, for God to protect us, and to always thank Him when we get back safely. Since that day the saying, JESUS IS LORD, keeps going over and over again in my mind. Jesus Christ came as an innocent baby and died on the cross as an innocent man. He did that so people may have a chance to spend eternity with Him. He did that even for the ones who will not bow their knee to Him in this life.

Someday, like my Momma and the Word says, “Every knee will bow.”


JESUS IS LORD!

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling for you and for me
See on the portals He’s waiting and watching
Watching for you and for me
Come home, come home
Ye who are weary come home
Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling, “O sinner come home”
O for the wonderful love He has promised
Promised for you and for me
Though we have sinned He has mercy and pardon
Pardon for you and for me
Come home, come home
Ye who are weary come home
Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling, “O sinner come home”
Come home, come home (come home)
Ye who are weary come home
Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling, “O sinner come home” Lyrics from Softly and Tenderly Hymn
