It’s about half past three on this fine Wednesday afternoon as I come to the screen; not sure I have a lot to say today; two thoughts in particular from earlier today have returned to mind so perhaps I should share them.
A collage of pictures makes up the backboard of my desk (and my desk is pretty much a mess most of the time, I tidied it up a bit for you just now — see pic); here and there in the collage are pictures of my Momma.
I’m missing her extra today (January 31, it will be two years since she woke up in Heaven). Which may account for certain of my thoughts today. Strange one that I am, I even ask JESUS to let her know that I love her and I am thinking of her and looking forward to when I see her again. And now for the thought that prompted all that ‘background’ — Eternal Life and one of the reasons I am sure it is true. Of course, first and foremost is because the Bible says so and the HOLY SPIRIT has confirmed it to me.
DADDY GOD never wastes anything — He doesn’t you know. And so today I figured it this way there must be Eternal Life because it would be such a waste to have these relationships of love to just die and come to naught after this oh so short sojourn here on planet earth is finished.
Yeah! Life and love continues forever.
And my second reoccurring thought? Faith. And the fact that I have it at all is an immeasurable gift. There was a time in my life that I was wrecked with fear and doubt; even doubting that I could believe. Doubting that I could believe JESUS, the GOD-MAN, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died my death for me so I could have His life. Each time even now as I remember when faith came, I breathe easier. Faith. An immeasurable gift! And to think, He gave it to me!! I still can’t get my brain around that one but my heart is and that’s what matters to me. Happy Thursday, Sweet Friends!
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16. KJV
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand. John 10:28 KJV
2 Samuel 12: (New Living Translation)23 But why should I fast when he is dead? Can I bring him back again? I will go to him one day, but he cannot return to me.” source
Thank You, ABBA, for this day; for the beauty, the joy, the peace, the promises, the very faith You have given. Thank You. You know I’m thinking of _____ today. Identifying with her, with her broken heart, only You can mend her and I know You will. ________ too as she continues treatments, it’s a journey I know You are traveling with her and I am so grateful for the strength and gifts You are giving her along the way. And _________’s surgery on Friday, I pray You will make it go well with her. Praying for These, having read their names, some faces I know, many I do not, I commend them to You, LORD, asking You to tend their hearts and their bodies. HOLY SPIRIT, please tend us all in JESUS Name. Amen and amen.
Holy hugs, kt
