                                  “Many People Will Praise God Because You Obey The Good News …                                                           and Because You Freely Share With Them And With All Others.”   2 Cor 9:12

Last week, I Prayerfully chose to share my personal story with you about this ‘diagnosed’ Spinal Cerebellar Ataxia.  Can we continue to share and learn together?

As usual, my day was jam-packed with well-orchestrated activities.  On this crisp Sunday morning, my foster girls and I had enjoyed a compassionate and inspiring Sunday morning church sermon.  Then, home to devour a savoring beef-roast, potatoes, and carrots and culminating in cherry pie the girls helped prepare.

(You uniquely created me and have continued to mature me in your knowledge.)  My Lord blessed me with a confident athletic ‘run free’ spirit that has served to give me a hunger for your ‘protecting strength.’  “Thank You Father God for guiding me to undoubtedly endure and resist earning a rusty mind and body.)

“GOD’S STRENGTH IS MOST GREATLY DISPLAYED IN  OUR WEAKNESS.”  2 Cor. 12:1-10.

An unannounced awareness by an innocent caring little 6-year old foster child became an integral part of my day.  (Kayla must have just ‘sensed’ I had a need for assistance at that precise moment.)

We were going downstairs to the children’s playroom. For some unfathomable reason, my feet were not firmly landing on each descending step.  Kayla came to my rescue.  This wee child became my Super Woman!  She swiftly took my hand to make sure I was safely navigating the stairs until we reached the solid floor.

For He Will Command His Angels Concerning You To Guard You In All Your Ways;   “They Will Lift You Up In Their Hands, So You Will Not Strike Your Foot Against A Stone.”                             Psalm 91:10-12

 When you are facing a serious catastrophic crisis, no matter what the issue may be, you will find your truest family, and or friends are just like the ‘cream’ of milk, they will ‘rise’ to the top providing your ‘unconditional’ love list.

I always find it rather, paradoxical how God chooses to position and use someone else’s circumstances in order to change another person’s life.  Then, to further his divine hand of intervention, he may help them see how the ‘temporary’ things that are only of this secular world and will not have a ‘home’ in his eternal Kingdom.

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.  “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”   Isaiah 55:8-9

My Prayer: “Father God, help me to become the Christian Lady that fearlessly shares, and freely gives of myself.  Please ‘examine my Heart,’ and know my sincerest intention to, hopefully, encourage and give inspiration  to another hurting person!  Let my ‘walk’ to freedom be a humble testimony that says:  “if she can do it – I CAN do it.”  Give me a new ‘Boldness’ to truly seek after you and know it’s okay to ‘Let Go and “Let God.”   I Pray to be ‘set free’ and when this day DOES happen, I KNOW that my God WILL remove these chains I’ve allowed to bind me.

The disciple, Luke said:  “I Will Always Pray ~ I Don’t Ever give Up!”  Luke 18:1

Before my day begins, I choose to start each day on my knees in Prayer, so I’ll send that sentiment along to you too.  This sacred  habit saturates my soul and affords a  meaningful opportunity for gaining a true sense of calmness – and a ‘Peace’ found through Prayer.

Try to dedicate at least 1-hour to DAILY Prayer with your Heavenly Father.

HE is your provider!

All ‘worry’ will accomplish in our lives is more stomach problems, sleepless nights where we ‘wrangle’ (fight our emotions), and toss-and-turn, adding stress, gray-hair, and wrinkles.   Ultimately, all worry does is it give control of our life to the enemy/devil, (which is what he wants).

Please Meditate (chew-on) these Scriptures:

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”             John 10:10

“Take Captive EVERY Thought and Make It O b e d i e n t to Gods Word.”               II Corinthians 10:5

If  negative thoughts or images come  into your head, please know those thoughts were not planted in your Heart by our Wonderful Abba Daddy. He Loves you w- -a- y too much to put ‘hateful’, ‘hurtful’ ‘downer’, thoughts in your Mind! (THAT’S the work of the enemy! (he’s trying to get you to ‘think’ negative junk!)

REFUSE to take the bait!

(The enemy is just trying to find a ‘weak-spot’ in You, then he’ll go to work; and he will WORK on you until he’s succeeds, or fails.)

“Submit to God, RESIST the enemy and he WILL Flee.” James 4: 7 & 8

God’s word says in Isaiah 61:1 (Isaiah speaking: “The Lord has sent me to Speak Good News To The Poor.” “He has sent me to Bind-Up The Broken-Hearted, Proclaim Healing And Freedom For Captives, and To Proclaim That THIS Is The Year Of The Lord’s Favor.”

(The Apostle Paul, who started as one of Christianity’s most zealous enemies, was hand-picked by Jesus Christ to become the gospel’s most ardent messenger.):

“I CAN Do ALL Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me.” Philippians 4:13
