But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” 2John 3:21 NKJV
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 2 John 4:4 NKJV
We are strong because of who is in us. We can face any adversity that is thrust upon our path as long as we have God in our life. No matter what we are currently going through.
A dear friend of mine has received some unsettling news. After months of experiencing weakness in her legs, and a general malaise…it was discovered through an MRI that she has a mass on her spine.
This news comes after losing her husband of 19 years this past March, and her mom the year before. And no matter how much she has endured, losing the love of her life, and her precious mother, she NEVER lost faith. She always has a good outlook. She never says “why me?” Nor does she ever get angry. She is fastened in her love of God and her trust is impregnable. She is steadfast and never doubts God or His love and perfect will. A true woman of God as she stands under the wings of protection of our Lord.
This lady has been jumping over hurdles and walking in the valley for some time, and although the ground literally and figuratively has at times become “shaky” for my friend. Her unwavering faith has kept her grounded throughout this tenuous course. God is strong in her, and with her, and holding her up, every conceivable step of the way.
Grace, mercy, and peace will be with you from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. 2 John 1:3 NKJV
God and his love and his mercy has sustained her, and will continue to do so. His love, and the peace of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit will help her through this current crisis in her life. It is without a doubt that no matter what happens in the next little while, I do know my friend will be enveloped in His abiding love and care. He will uphold her with His righteous and strong hands. He will touch her and heal her emotionally, and if it is His will….physically as well.
Our course of execution in behavior is all about our belief system in God. The rigorous terrain of life can be rocky, and we will undergo transformations in our lifetime. But, the one defining moment of acceptance and peace shines down from heaven as His light brings warmth and love to our souls. The very soul He created. The very soul He owns. The very soul he loves with conviction and purity.
I pray my friend will have a “good prognosis” when she goes to the doctor this upcoming Tuesday. That it isn’t as scary as it sounds. Please keep my friend, “Dee” in prayer. As she goes through the biggest battle of her life at this time.
We will keep positive thoughts as we trust God with this I know God is in control and He knows the outcome as I type, but we all know prayer is powerful and intercessory prayer is potent…So we lift you up in prayer Dee in Jesus’ name. Amen.
I know the Lord in His grace and love, will be with you every step of the way, holding your hand and bringing you peace, no matter what the outcome is. Amen & Amen.
Lord, we love you and your mercy will endure forever~
This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it. 2 John 1:6 NKJV
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. 3 For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth 3 John 1:2-4 NKJV
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life Jude 1:20 NKJV
