My friends, I am not sure why but I have been distracted lately. Jesus hasn’t been at the forefront of my thoughts, instead I have been busy, running around, and missing Him. We took a yoga class together last night, and usually when He joins me He is helping me through, but last night in my imagination He was sitting there watching me (smiling, but still just watching). For some reason I have put Him aside instead of welcoming Him in?
As I miss Him, I am thankful for my previous posts that remind me that He is still here watching and waiting for me to call to Him again.
Please pray for me my friends, as you bask in His loving presence, that the veil covering me will be removed yet again, my eyes will be cleansed yet again, and again I will see only Him everywhere and in everyone!
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done!
The first Easter that I truly mourned for Jesus was two years ago. I cried as I went to bed on Good Friday as I finally scratched the surface of trying to understand how His disciples must have felt that night. My sweet husband held my hand as I cried and we fell asleep.
Last year I mourned again and I cried and prayed a lot for Judas Iscariot. I remember going for a nature walk with my family and my sweet girls holding my hands as the tears flowed.
I am not sure why I have been so greatly blessed with so many tears during Holy Week the last two years, but I pray for tears of true sorrow for my sweet Jesus to flow again this year. I also pray for you to join me in this great sorrow NOT because misery loves company, but because following our tears we will together rise to great heights of joy on Easter morning as we again celebrate that He is Risen, He is Risen, He is Risen Indeed, my friends.
May all of the glory for ever and ever be given to Him! Amen.
Since I first thought, prayed and wrote about Our Best Life, I have changed, I am different… I think I am becoming new. I have told friends that I don’t know why this change has come about, but I am starting to realize that I do know why… it is because of Him, and only Him.
When I first starting praying for Our Best Life, someone very close to me was going through two very difficult and life changing events. Her suffering and pain finally opened my eyes to my own selfishness and allowed me to step outside of myself for a moment and begin thinking of and praying for others by praying for Our Best Life.
This changed my direction, but He in His infinite humility still didn’t step in until I invited Him in through a prayer to be the seed that has been sown on good soil.
He heard my prayer and came running to help me. Regardless of how much work there is to do in me, He pushed up His sleeves and began working to make me new! Anything kind, loving, patient, thoughtful, considerate, generous that I do is because of Him… it is NOT me! There is still so much to be done, but He is here and my thoughts run to Him as I talk with my husband and my children, work on homework and play with my children, read, listen to music, wash dishes, fold and iron clothes, clean our home, make our dinner and even while kneeling on the floor a few weeks ago to clean up my daughters throw-up.
Thank You My Love for being here with me… I do not just need You, I desire You from the depths of my heart.
