Where Two or Three are gathered there I am in the midst
Oh the joy of meeting with a fellow believe especially when it is the LORD that has brought you together. I had just come from the doctors in tears and emotional. Feeling very alone with lots of physical ailments, tired. Having sought many doctors, counsellors over many many years it seemed a daunting task to me that I would be healed. I have clung on to many times the words the LORD gave me during my marriage which bitterly broke down which grieves me still. As I stood in the kitchen making a cup of tea and at my wits end with all the medication I was taking just to get through each day and having to live with all the horrid side effects a clear voice spoke to me which I recognised instantly and the words said 'I am the LORD that healeth thee'. So five years on I am still clinging to and trusting these words. To every doctor, every counsellor I have seen is a contradictory message which plunges and has plunged me into deep depression. Living by faith each day is hard, having to lean upon the LORD for everything. The strength I had when I was younger. The beauty of a young woman hopeful of love dashed to pieces many times with abuse. I came to despise how I looked and still do. Little was I to know that the heart sees past what is on the outside. I love the story of how the LORD chose David over Saul. A man after the LORD's heart indeed.
So as I walked into town where I live feeling very lonely indeed which was made even worse as yet another christian passed me by I saw my fellow believe who even has the same name as me. I was overjoyed to see her at the exact time. I was in need of company and had been given some money so we went for tea and cake. I knew that the money I had was to last me over the next 7 days but I was just so overjoyed to see this lady. We have both been through the mill a lot and I have been contentious with her on my occasions such my distrust of people and their motives. But oh the LORD was so with us this day.
I had a cappuchinno and my friend a cup of tea. I bought a piece of cake to share but then the LORD said trust me with money so I bought another slice so we had one each. I used up all of my money but I didn't care.
We talked about the LORD and our families, our worries and concerns. My daughter is to take a very long journey at the end of the year and it is the furthest we have been apart and I'm very nervous but talking to my friend and fellow christian it eased my burden. I think we must have chatted for over an hour and I enjoyed every minute of it.
I went home and really thanked the LORD. A few days later I was bringing to mind all the good things that have happened despite my loneliness as I very rarely see anyone in my flat but the LORD has made it so. The LORD has brought me into a place where I totally rely upon him. I write to the LORD and he writes back to me and I realised that he has kept away those that have provoked me and vexed me in spirit and it has been for my health such is the love of the LORD towards me.
I went to text a message to my friend and fellow christian to really thank her and what a joy it was to me and the LORD revealed very strongly that he had sat among us as we shared our concerns and the concerns of our family members and even the people in the town. I caught a glimpse from heaven how the LORD had sat with us and it brought such joy so truly where two or three are gathered he is there! Often we read the scripture and think 'yes this is true' but when the revelation comes from heaven itself and you know without a doubt the LORD sat with us listening, guiding us, moving our hearts towards others and bringing hope, healing and friendship then how can we not praise the LORD. I did this morning taking my dog out to our favourite place which I hadn't been to in quite sometime.
Oh how I love you LORD there is no one like you. You make wars to cease and calm the roughest seas.
As I mused over the lady who one week embraced me and told me she loved me and then walked by me a few weeks later the LORD lovingly spoke to me and said 'Jacqui she didn't reject you she rejected me'. Again the truth of this sank in deeper but after this lady rejected me and walked by me still in tears then the LORD brought my friend Jackie to me to take for a coffee.
Also on this meeting I bumped into my beautiful daughter and her friend whom. I embraced them both such was the love the LORD gave me to give to those whom were open to his love. I hadn't seen my daughter for quite sometime and I miss her dearly since she left for home. She rang me up later on that day which was a pure delight to me.
I am praying that the LORD will provide all the finances we need, both for my daughter's travels and know he will and also to keep me financially provided for over the Easter break as I have less than four pounds to last until Wednesday. The offices were closed so I was unable to get any money but the LORD is faithful and I know without a doubt he will provide for everything I need. He is so good!
I have such a joy in my heart as the LORD's guidance and protection at this time. I lost my coat the other day. It was new and it was the only coat I had. I managed to buy another jacket second hand but I was really upset about this coat as the LORD had chosen it for me. It was red and he reminded me through choosing this that I am covered with the Blood of the LAMB. So when I found I had lost it I just thought in my own mind it would never be found again. Where I live so many tourists out at this time in Easter. Anyway finally I decided to go around the town Good Friday, I didn't join in with the Easter festivities because I am not welcome or received so I just walked my dog, popped into see a friend at the crystal shop and saw my daughter they both received me and asked how I was. I was just coming home and outside the RLNI on the bannister I saw a red coat hanging up. I walked over to it thinking this can't possibly be mine and it was. The exact size that I bought and from the place I bought it. I never would have thought it possible I was overjoyed because also it was symbolic to me too that I was wearing the coat the red meaning the Blood of the Lamb. It was so significant being Good Friday. It was also the exact day 9 years previously when I had a major breakdown and I was passed from pillar to post with health officials and through it abuse.
The heavens opened whilst I walked home with my coat and I was able to shelter from the storm with the red coat over my head!
When I got home I made a cup of tea and turned on the tv. I do not watch tv but as soon as the screen came up it was a disney adaptation called The Prince of Egypt and was about Moses in Exodus. Oh the LORD is so good and meets all of our deepest needs every day.
Thankyou LORD so much!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
