Wrote a BIG THANK YOU on my Lyme Blog. :) Still totally in awe of how incredibly amazing God is and at all the loving, generous hearts He has put into my life! I often think of these verses when thinking of how many people have played such a role in the fact that I am still alive and am moving towards FULL healing: “For we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, of the affliction we experienced in Asia. For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. BUT THAT WAS TO MAKE US NOT RELY ON OURSELVES BUT ON GOD WHO RAISES THE DEAD. He DELIVERED us from such a deadly peril, and HE WILL DELIVER US. On Him we have set our HOPE that He will deliver us again. You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many.” ~2 Corinthians 1:11 That last line….**the blessing granted us through the prayers of MANY.** My life has been SO blessed by the prayers of SO MANY.
Tonight at family devotions I thought Mom shared some good insights about prayer. She said something like this, "I think someday when we get to Heaven we will be able to see how powerful prayer was here on earth. But for now, we need to keep the faith strong about the power of prayer...just like the Israelites in the Old Testament had to keep the faith strong that there really was a Messiah coming."
Well, it's been very therapeutic for me to write on here. Thankfully I am so sleepy now that I think the sleep will overcome the pain. <3 I'm not expecting anyone to read thru this at all. :) It's long...but I love documenting what Jesus is doing in my life and heart. I know someday I'll love to come back and read thru this blog. <3 It's important to "remember"....cuz as humans, at least for me...it seems way too easy to forget things. :-/
Good Night and Sweet Dreams World! :)
