These past two days I haven’t felt like blogging. I don’t know why…but I have done it anyway.
It is part of my morning routine. I wake up, feed my child three small white donuts with chocolate milk, make my coffee, put my make up on and get dressed, and then spend my time with God. Then, I blog. Lately though it seems I have needed an attitude adjustment.
Have you ever spent time alone with God and feel like you just want to keep the message for yourself?
It would take a lot of honesty to admit this, but one of the reasons I do blog is to share what I have been recently blessed with…and most of the time it’s God’s word, definitely it’s never mine.
I used to think it was the coffee talking, but no, I often pray for God to speak through me, and that is the only reason I do blog—to share His good news.
I took my dog, Tyson to the vet. yesterday and things definitely turned out better than they could have; his liver and kidneys are functioning well. He does have some type of gastro intestinal issues which we have new medicine for…this morning he woke up and ate some wet food and so far so good at keeping it down. Thank you, Jesus! Things are looking up again.
One thing I do want to thank everyone for is your abundance of prayers. We have felt such love and support since he fell ill and it really means a lot.
Have you ever been surrounded by thoughts and prayers in this way?
I can’t tell you what a difference this makes. It reminds me how important it is to ask for prayer. To share.
I think a lot of people suffer silently and alone. Even if you are praying to the Lord, sometimes it helps to have God’s mercy poured out in other ways…meaning by use of His people here on earth too. Helping one another is one of the best ways I can see that Christians can unite and be there for one another. It helps to SHARE! Don’t try to go to battle alone. With just you and God, things can get better, but God wants you to share your news and His word as much as you can. It is part of serving Him and He delights in how it can grow your relationship with Him and unite fellow Christians together.
Today is another day without my husband. And I will admit to you, I’m missing him terribly. My blessing is that he is to come home late tomorrow evening but I think of those who no longer are able to be with their loved ones. We have all lost someone in our life that we miss dearly, but we must remember that it is only a matter of time before we will see them again. Our Lord is good—and always!
I pray you have a great day full of sunshine and hope. The Holy Spirit is with you and along with those that surround you today, I pray you rejoice. Good news is here. Jesus has risen. Today is a new day full of new mercy. And Amen to that!
“But to all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You and be in high spirits.” Psalm 5:11
