“That’s What You Want”

The Lord said this twice as I drove from visiting my new grandbaby, Noah, in the hospital.  My ex-husband was also there.  He is remarried, there is nothing between us, in fact I intercede for them both.  Not sure where the Lord was going with this word, but it led me to seriously lament again the failed, former marriage and how everyone suffered by its demise. I’m powerless to change what happened, maybe praying for them would make me a better wife one day.

The good Lord , now 3 years later, gave me a new husband. He brought us together for His purposes, though we reap the many beautiful benefits of being under His wing.

Boaz to Ruth in 2:12 (KJV), “The Lord recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.”

Jesus said He made them male and female in Mark 10:6.

Mark 10:27, “And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

John 15:5, Jesus says, “without Me ye can do nothing.”

Finder of Lost Items

Found my co-worker’s earring!.  Reading the note saying she lost a silver earring, I felt joy in my spirit, knowing I would find it and remembering the times God led us to a lost item.

A friend’s testimony of praying to the Lord, “You know where it is, You’re looking right at it.  Please show me where it is.”

The next day, God recovered it!  I was particularly joyful to part of blessing that co-worker.

Ask God, the giver of all good gifts (James 1:17), not a patron saint endowed with a gift, to point you to that which is lost.

The Truth Hurts

but it frees from what really is destroying you.  “The truth will make you free,” Jesus says in John 8:32. Let His truth penetrate you.

I asked God to take the desire for alcohol from me, the need to escape.  He did, He lifted the oppression off and I was and am free from it.

God is my Deliverer.  I only had to ask for Him to remove the desire. Before this, I denied having a problem.  Though I didn’t hide it from others, the reason I drank was controlling me.  Addiction has a way of making its own sin in other areas of your life.

Thank You, Jesus.

You also healed my addiction to a t.v. show about the same time.  I knew it was wrong & it didn’t glorify You.  

“They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of sin and corruption. For you are a slave to whatever controls you.” 2 Peter 2:19 (NLT).
