Prayer for Wisdom
This has been taken from week 3 of our 30 day guide to help and understand the prescription for Wisdom. November is Wisdom Month at JesusRx. We hope you will join us in obtaining wisdom.
Prayer if needed:
All knowing, wise, powerful God, I don’t want to lean on my own understanding anymore. I think so many people are smart, but NONE can compare to you. I want straight paths. I don’t want to shout as a ruler of fools.
Is it Possible to have a sound Mind and secure Soul?
How does it feel when you call out to your children or a friend and they do not answer? It can be frustrating (my mind starts with all sorts of things) . I know my children think , when I call them, I have things for them to do. They usually don’t want to pick up after themselves, or go with me to run errands. Does that happen at your house? What about when I have good things to give them or tell them? They miss out.
Are you called to work on the Sabbath?
I was looking over Luke Chapters 13 and 14. It was interesting to me that Jesus used illustrations with donkey or oxen both times. In chapter 13 it says Jesus set a woman free from the bondage of Satan. She was bound by an infirmity for 18 years. Jesus said satan had bound her and JESUS CALLED OUT TO HER to come to him. She must have gone over to him because he laid his hands on her and immediately she was made straight.
Can You Really Justify Yourself?
Note: I hope you will read 1 peter 1:1-21 after this.
In Luke 10:25-29 we read about a lawyer (expert in the law), asking Jesus what he should do to inherit eternal life. Jesus, knowing he was an expert in the law, asked him what was written there in and how he was reading it. Of course the lawyer had the right answer. Jesus went on to tell him to apply what he said to his life.
I don’t want curiosity to kill this cat
When I was younger it was fun to read horoscopes and even pretend to call back friends dying relatives. My brother would be the “dead” that knocked on the garage window as I was calling out to the dead relative of a friend. Keep in mind we were around 8 or 10 years old. We used to watch a show called The 6th
sense and of course there was Dark Shadows.
How do you choose your Physician?
There’s different ways a person finds a Physician.
Years ago, growing up your family would have a “family doctor” and as you grew older you would use that same doctor for your medical needs. The family doctor would get to know you and your family through the years and treat everyone.
They weren't told he would be BEHEADED
The last blog I wrote about Elizabeth the mother of John. I couldn't help but go back to what Elizabeth and Zachariah were told about their son. You can read the story in Luke chapters 1-3 ( and I hope you do).
Elizabeth and Zachariah were told what to name their baby and of his being filled, even at birth, with the Holy Spirit.
SHAME: What can be done about it?
Shame. This is what Elizabeth felt by not being able to have children. In todays culture it isn't a disgrace if you can't have or do not want to have children.
Elizabeth, being Jewish, was looked down upon because she was barren, even thought of having hidden sin and that is why some thought her womb was not open to having children.
"EVER NEED AN ENCOURAGING WORD?"
I have a friend who came to help me out at one of the shows Jesus Rx attended. I have gone to several shows and get many different kind of reactions. We have a banner that says Jesus Rx and shows our product. We put a medicine chest on display showing our 12 "prescriptions". I will go over the "medicine" and compare the product to getting a "prescription" at the pharmacy.
Can Joy Be Found In Others Mistakes?
Do you ever find joy when others make mistakes or when they seem to fail in short of what was expected of them? I have.
You can look at this in 2 ways. You can think that you aren’t as bad as the other person because you didn’t make THOSE mistakes. You think it makes you look better, but that kind of thinking is prideful and that is when we are told men fall.
THE SOUND OF PEACE
Praise God the Father whom all blessings flow,
so thankful you are there EVERYWHERE I go.
He leadeth me by the still waters where I find Peace and Rest.
The water there no longer rages or has the strength to carry me away.
I sit quietly and listen.
What do I hear?
as I trust God.
I step into the still water, allowing my body to float there, to rest there.
ARE YOU SATISFIED?
There are so many versions of the Bible and I hear from time to time how the King James is the authority and should be used when reading or studying God's Word. If one of my loved ones won't read the Bible at all because it's the KJV, but will read NIV daily, should I be upset? I would not be upset I would be praising God they are in His Word.
This was orginaly posted in October when our prescription of the month was 'LOVE", reposting to show love is not just in words, but in action and deed 1 John 3:18
HE LOVES ME
We are celebrating LOVE this month at JesusRx. For those of you who do not know we highlight one "prescription" every month. We post a blog by the founder and she is trying to find others that want to write and share something that will show God IS IN our everyday life.
WISDOM IS PUTTING ON THE FULL ARMOR
I know we should never be surprised when we start in one book of the Bible and end up in another. I prayed and thought maybe God would use Ecclesiastes to show me what to do for the blog on wisdom. I used to think Ecclesiastes was a little depressing. "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity (or futile) 1:2.
Stopped For Speeding AGAIN! Was WISDOM Gained Through This Experience?
When I first heard the term "she has a lead foot" I was young and not old enough to drive. I came to understand what that meant and couldn't believe when people would say that about me. Remember I was younger then. Maybe God makes some peoples feet heavier than others? In Arizona we have straight roads so it easier to go faster than the speed limit without realizing it.
SIGNS OF AN ANGRY PERSON
I was driving down the road the other day and couldn't believe how slow the person in front of me was going. I started to have signs of an angry person. I think you know what I am talking about. I started saying not nice things under my breath, like OH COME ON, then when I noticed they were on a cell phone I wanted to start yelling GET OFF YOUR PHONE and concentrate on driving!! I'm not a "road rage" kind of person, but I felt myself getting a little angry because this person was being inconsiderate.
Presidential Candidates Also Candidates For.....
Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama are Candidates for the office of the President of the United States of America.
“What an angry and desperate Presidency looks like. Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago”. These words were spoken by Romney while campaigning in Ohio, in response to Vice President Biden’s speech about the plans Romney has of “unchaining Wall Street and putting us all back in chains”.
How Does That Prescription Work? See Package Insert.
Before explaining how daily doses from JesusRx™ works, I would like to give you a little information from a package insert of a medication I dispensed daily, when practicing as a pharmacist.
“The mechanism of action of (x drug), as with other drugs having efficacy in (x disease state) is unknown
, however it has been proposed
that this drug’s efficacy in….
Note: This post was originally done in July, but may help you all year understand how our speech affects others.
FIREWORKS and SPEECH have a lot in common
Every month at Jesus Rx we highlight one of our "prescriptions". I was not sure what we would highlight for July. We ended June by taking part in CreationFest and I had a customer come up to our booth who told me some very sad news he received that morning.
ARE YOU STILL DREAMING?
In sharing part of my life with you, I would like to ask you some questions about your life.
First, are you following your dreams?
Second, what HAVE your dreams been?
Third, has fear played a role in why you haven't fulfilled those dreams or possibly the reason you did?
After graduating High School I think everyone has dreams. My was to some day be happily married to the perfect spouse, have 4 children and be the best pharmacist I could be.

Dedicated to my 2012 High School Graduate
Many of you have seen your children graduate from Pre-school to Elementary school, from Elementary to Jr High, Jr High to High School, High School to College or into the work force. Some parents, even get to share in their childrens college graduations, even if it happens 10 years or longer after High School.
My husband and I get to see our first born graduate from High School this year.
Forgiveness and White Counter Tops
What color is your kitchen and bathroom countertops? Would anyone in their right mind want white ones? I moved into a house about 10 years ago and that is what was in the kitchen and bathrooms. About a week ago I got a new appreciation for those white countertops. I will try to explain how this happened.
I would like to list the "ingredients" in our Finance Prescription for review. Of course there are many more scriptures where we are told about money and ways to honor God with that area of our lives. Growing up I don't remember hearing a lot about what God said about money, but a lot about "hell, fire and brimstone". Once I was safe from that "hell, fire and brimstone" how was I supposed to live the life God has given me while on this earth?
Thankfully, as an adult I had the privilege of being part of Bible Studies that let me know God is concerned with my WHOLE life, which includes, marriage, children, relationships, work and yes EVEN FINANCES.
I used to be a "Martha" (Luke 10:38-42)
I used to make sure dishes were done before going to bed. Actually I couldn't go to bed unless the kitchen was clean (I didn't mop the floor nightly, I wasn't that bad!) I had left a few dishes in the sink and a pan on the stove.
BUDGET, another word for RESTRAINT or FREEDOM
Our prescription for March is Finance.
This post was originally done in March 2012. I am reposting and determined to do our budgets in January this year (2013).
Options when you hear the Pharmacist say, "Sorry, your prescription is not covered."
Have you ever been told by your pharmacist that your prescription, or the one prescribed for a family member, is not covered by your insurance? What did you do? What can you do? There are a few options.
1. You can pay cash price for the medication.
Different Ways People are "Taking in" Jesus Rx
JesusRx can be used to help a person grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ by being a reminder of His Word. We have listed just a few ways we are seeing JesusRx daily doses being used.
1. The most obvious one is to put your JesusRx daily dose near your prescription medications and read daily. This is taking a step towards ones spiritual need of not living by "bread alone, (or prescription medications) but every word that proceedith out of the mouth of God"
FEAR WAS THE BEGINNING
My parents and siblings would say they liked the gifts I would give because they were unique and thoughtful. Honestly I don't just give a gift to give a gift. When I am out and about and I see something that has a "persons name all over it", I buy it. A birthday or special occasion may not be coming soon. For Christmas 2009, I wanted to give some of the ladies that were meeting in my home for Bible Study a "special" gift.
Take Your "Medicine"
Being a pharmacist for 23 years I can't help but be concerned if people are taking their medication and if they are taking them correctly. My goal was always to help people live healthy lives. I knew, and most of my customers knew, it was much faster and easier to take a pill than to eat healthy, exercise and learn how to handle stressful life situations.
