Ps 91 (NKJV)

3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the perilous pestilence.4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day,6 nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

The Power of JUST

This one little word has a lot of power. Did you know that?

According to the word JUST has thirteen definitions. I won't list them all here because for my purpose today, I am only going to focus on definition number twelve. JUST - only, merely.

As a stay-at-home mom, I have heard many times, "Oh, you're JUST a housewife," or "JUST a stay-at-home mom."

No, I'm not JUST either of those things; I'm both of them and many more. First and foremost I am a person with feelings. Secondly, I am a child of God. I am a wife and a mother, but I am also a teacher and a writer (whether or not I ever get published is irrelevant, I am still a writer).

When necessary, I become a taxi driver, a nurse, a vet, a groundskeeper/gardener, a chef/baker, and so much more.

I am not JUST anything and neither are you.

What things do you do that keep you from being a JUST type of person?



  1. I considered writing about this word, too! You were able to narrow it down to one topic-great job!

  2. Laughed at Barbara's comment above and I too almost chose this word. Interesting word to be on all of our minds.

  3. Oh so true - from one homeschooling mom to another:) Thanks for the reminder today.


I hope you have been blessed by my blog. Thank you for your comments.
