“4. The Word of the LORD came to me saying, 5. ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew (chose) you, before you were born, I set you apart;'”
As the scripture continues, it states, “I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” While I know He has not appointed me as a prophet, this Easter morning, I sat in amazement – total amazement that He knew or chose ME. Of all people to do some thing of His will. Just like He has appointed each one of you (good and bad) to carry out His mission. I’m still wondering what that might be. But I know, in His time – not mine, He will reveal to me His plan for me. I Can Only Imagine. I am so excited.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter, because Jesus has risen. Yes in deed, HE HAS RISEN!
I woke up to another cloudy day here on the east coast with a splitting headache. I suffer from migraines and I had to stop taking the medication that kept them away because the medication became toxic to my body.
I’ll never forget my first migraine. I was in high school in physics class and all of a sudden I could not see the right side of the room. I didn’t know what was happening, but I tried to carry on the rest of the day. On my way to English, I had to look back and forth across the sidewalk so I could see where I was going. I struggled through the class and on the way out of the classroom, I fainted. When I awoke, I was in my Algebra teacher’s office. I was so sick to my stomach and started throwing up. My teacher told me what was happening and that I would be fine.
From then on I’ve suffered from migraines. Never knowing when they would come on but very thankful to God on the day’s that I didn’t have a headache. When I start my day’s off this way, I am reminded of Rev 21:3,4.
3. I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among His people! He will live with them, and they will be His people. God Himself will be with them. 4. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever. “
And all I can do is close my eyes and say a prayer of thanks.
God’s peace be with you all.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
– Romans 12:2 NIV
“A first step in repentance is confession of sin and a prayer for the Lord’s effective enablement in the believer’s life. True repentance involves the work of the whole person in recognizing and sorrowing over sin and renouncing it so as to turn to God in full heart’s devotion to His Lordship.”
– Jeremiah 31:18
