Could not think of a title!
March 28, 2019
Aging (maturing) along with this new diagnosis of CAA is, pretty tricky. But I am working at it.
I must not over exert myself, nun the less… I need to keep active and do. What?
Things…like not giving up joining in or giving up stuff that you think that you should not do because of what might happen since caa. The medical profession cannot predict what is going to happen to each individual. We will all get different symptoms etc.
I had a good day today by participating in the World day of prayer. I loved it, being with believers from all denominations participating and then having a time with refreshments and fellow-shipping together. It was a lovely cool but sunny day, around 40F. Guess what happen next? You guessed it…another… big freeze.
Here we are at March 7, 2019 and it did come in like a Lion. We are all hoping it goes out like a lamb, right!
So now what?
I must lean on my Lord and Saviour as always. Am I praying enough, not really? Why?
I tell myself, I talk to Him all day; is that not enough? No!
That is not what God calls prayer. So, if I know that, why can I not change my attitude and make more of an effort to be more obedient to God like I tell myself I am?
Father God, it is not enough. I want so much to serve You the way that You want me too. Give the strength, courage and wisdom, which I know is within me because of my faith within. I believe with my whole heart that You are Lord God almighty, You came to earth as Jesus to teach us to live like You; from baby on. Then, You had to die upon a cross for our sins. But You rose after 3 days for our salvation. Why? So that as believers in Your Gospel, we will be with You in Heaven.
Easter is late and falling in the month of April this year and I guess that is why I need to talk about lent and confess my failings and guilt. I must repent and get over this down time. I will overcome, for I Love God and His Son with all my heart. Thank You Jesus, Praise God.
The enemy is not going to win; I will not give in to his lies. Our pastor had a very good sermon this morning from psalm 127 about David.
1; The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life___of whom shall I be afraid?
I am pressing on to keep reading all the scriptures in the bible that go together with lent, that the church has chosen for us. They are so meaningful and precious as we get ready to celebrate the gospel of God’s Son Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.
When the enemy attacks us, we must put on God’s armour, using Ephesians 6; 10 13.
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armour of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the power, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day and having done everything, to stand firm.
Verse 14 24, Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness and having shod your feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace; in addition to all taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints, and pray on my behalf that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains: that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
My story is not over! In 1998, I was yet again blessed with another poem.
Day by day, abide with Me.
I love you more than I can say.
I died a death that I may pay
For all your sins on that one day.
That you would learn to do the same.
I ask you now to worship Me
Do not feel shame and share My love
From day to day.
Safe ….In the arms of Jesus, That is my wish for you.
Open the door for Jesus. Love will let Him through.
Give Him your trials and troubles; no one else can do...
what God wants to do for you, when you stay…safe in the arms of Jesus!
God’s Blessings to you and ours
This Easter 2019
