Ignorance

I am confessing my ignorance.

This morning I am finishing prep for tonight’s Bible Class at the Adult Continuing Education Series (ACES) being held at First Baptist Church Satsuma. And I have come across a word that truly I have no recollection of previously reading.

Comeuppance

And it means an outcome (good or bad) that is well deserved.

Good or bad.

Well deserved.

I am so glad I am not getting my comeuppance of hell and I have received JESUS comeuppance of HEAVEN.

Aren’t you?

Look for an opportunity today to tell someone about your comeuppance.

10 For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. 11 So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.

via Romans 5 NLT – Faith Brings Joy – Therefore, since we – Bible Gateway.

I encourage you to read the whole chapter from which these verses came.

Comeuppance.

A good word.

ABBA, thank You for the glorious pleasure of learning. Keep me learning, I pray. Thank You for good outcomes. And thank You that for Your People You turn bad outcomes to good ones. Thank You for the happy, happy things I see You doing and thank You for those good and blessed things You are doing that I do not yet see. Thank You. The Baby. Praying for him to breathe strong and healthily. Praying for his ‘mothers’ to love You with their whole hearts and rely upon You for everything. Israel. Always my prayer, ABBA, for their peace and the subduing of their enemies – Your enemies. The election – You know my heart cry there. The humbling of Your People. Yes, LORD, help us humble ourselves and repent. The restoration of America. Yes, ABBA, do not remove our lampstand. Help us humble ourselves and allow You to raise us up to reflect Your glory again. Many folks. Kerri. Dori. Pam. Allie. Dawn. And families grieving. And hard-headed people we love. And sad and lonely people. Lost and wondering what to do people. We all know people as these, ABBA, and we pray for them; just asking for Your help to heal them, comfort, encourage them and show them You have a far, far, far better way for them than the path they are taking. Yes, ABBA, her too. Thank You. You are so good to me. I love You, ABBA, in JESUS Mighty and Holy name.  And, one more thought. Continued strength and blessings for Your many faithful servants. Those just quietly and some not so quietly 🙂 doing the thing of loving You and people. I pray for their strength to be meet for this day.

Blessings to you Dear Friends    +++

Remember YOU have the God-given RIGHT to do right in this wrong world!
