GRACE Lesson continues
Well, found out furnace will not be able to be fixed until 1st of next week and a winter storm is coming today. Yep, today. Oh, goody. LOL Waiting on 4 estimates. Anyway, son is upset that his sis is pregnant but I informed him God's got it all under control and it will be ok. No, her health isn't great and that is a concern. So I am already covering her and the baby in prayers. God makes no mistakes. Had to chastise son on his remarks about God. Too bad I can't spank him still but I KNOW God will bring him back as again, God promises that His word will do what it is intended to do and not return void. I just have to look at my oldest son and realize this is his "stupid" time and God is working on him if nothing else by my standing firm in chastising his remarks & attitude. It'll work out. When, not if, WHEN God gets each of my children, I've prayed for God to be a raging fire in their bellies and bones that nothing can quench the fire and that the Holy Spirit is just poured out all over them. God always answers prayers and this is just my "seed" time. My garden will bloom in due season, I have no doubt. The bad call - yes, it's throat cancer and testing on Thursday to determine stage and what to do. Youngest son was able to return to school today and asthma seems to be improving. So, all in all, I am at peace, happy & content. My home is warm, I am safe, and My Father is being faithful in teaching me grace. Do you know what grace means? Unmerited, unearned favor. Aint' that glorious? I don't need to jump thru hoops for God to love me....He just loves me because He loves me. However, I do want to be a worthy vessel and made into an exact image. My best gal pal said I can't pray the way I do which is for God to give me the mantle of Jesus Christ in double portion. To give me the eyes, heart, mind, and ears of Christ. I told her, "WHY NOT? Elisha asked Elijah for his mantle and a double portion." No, I cannot be Christ but I do so want to leave not one doubt as to where I stand. Stand firm, stand in love, and bow face down before my Saviour & Lord. Hugs & love to all my peeps. Keep warm (LOL) and think of me.
