I love to see God working in my life especially through others. Recently someone posted a scripture. One that I have heard and read time and time again. It got me to start studying that more and more. I want to share that scripture and a couple more and some thoughts I have. The following is something that I found and wanted to share.
Psalm 139:14 reads; "I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and my soul knows very well." In the original Hebrew text, the word 'fearfully' means: with great reverence and heart-felt interest and respect. The word 'wonderfully' means: unique, set apart, uniquely marvelous. WOW! No wonder the psalmist bursts out with exuberant praise in this verse. He realized the great love and concern that went into his unique and very individual creation. The next time you have the temptation to ask the Lord, "Don't you care what is happening to me?" Remember this verse, because the total truth is that He cares with an acute intensity that cannot ever be measured.
For more understanding regarding this subject, let's take a look at Ephesians 2:10. "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God has prepared beforehand that we should walk in them"
God knew my children long before I had even dreamed of them. He knew exactly how He would make them. Who am I to question that this is not right. That they are not perfect! God made them. Is anything that He does not perfect? No!
Last night a friend of mine's son wrote something very loving and touching to her. I told him that I hope that Abe will love and adore me as much as he loves his mom when Abe is older. As I held him at 2:00 AM feeding him while he was having a really bad seizure and overwhelming peace came over me. I know without question that God has Abe in His arms, under His wing, in His complete protection. To God these seizures are not big things. WHY am I wasting time on praying that God will stop the seizures? God has much bigger plans for Abe's life and these seizures are not going to stop God from working in Abe's life. Quickly my focus and my prayers went to praying for Abe's life, for God's will for Abe's life. My prayers are too small for him. I should be praying big prayers for Abe.
I am so very thankful for each of my wonderfully and fearfully made by God children. I am so very thankful that each day God doesn't give up on me and continues to teach me what He wants me to learn. What I need to become more Christ like. I want the negative, oh whoa is me, burden filled stuff out of my life. That is what I will continue to work towards.
My favorite scripture is Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Why am I sharing all this with ya'll? Because I need prayers for me to focus on this. I want to keep my focus right and not let it stray. I don't understand God's plan. Not only for my life but others who are suffering, others who have lost, others who are going through trials and tribulations. If we are walking in the way of the Lord He will guide us and protect us. During that time it may not seem that way but He is. It may take going through the storm, a long hard storm before we see the sunshine. I honestly believe though that He will not leave us, forget us or let us fall as long as we keep our eyes on him and stay within His will.
I love each and everyone of you! I am so very thankful to have you in my life, praying with me!
