A Faith that Keeps Moving
Regardless of the Circumstances!
Thank you Lord and thank you all who prayed for me for today! I think my life is going to change for the better!
I have not had stable sugar levels for almost 30 years, and today I received an insulin pump. My sugars have been like a normal person all day! I think it is even lifting the brain fog! It is not a real pancreas, but it will do until I get the real one from the Lord! Woohoo!!
I can’t even tell you what this feels like right now, unless you had been through what I have for that long, and I know many have. I am just one happy daughter of a great Father in Heaven and some awesome kids that pray for one another when they are called on! You all Bless me and I am thanking Him and you! Now, I just need wisdom to figure it all out. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!
I also want to say this about those who have had this disease and many other ongoing hardships for many years and have hidden it from those that would have said that because they were not healed or didn’t have the thing that they had believed God for, that they did not have faith.
I heard a minister say that, “Faith is not if you have received the promise, or that it has or hasn’t manifested yet, but faith is Fidelity!”
In other words, it is keeping on, doing all that He asks of you everyday, continuing everyday to rise up, in spite of what you are enduring, because you’re trusting God, that He is good and knows what and when He wants this to take place! You get up and serve Him with, whatever you have got, in spite of what you don’t have! You rise up in spite of the pain!
You continue to serve Him in spite of everyday seeming harder than the next! You just keep putting one foot in front of the other, because you know that this isn’t it! You know that there is a continuing city….
I believe God would say to you today, that He is well pleased with your life, with your faith, Yes, He is proud of your faith and patience,and with your love for Him in the midst of it all! In due season you will reap if you do not faint and for many it is your due season! Yes, you see something beyond what others see. You see the Joy that is set before you!
“We ought and indeed are obligated [as those in debt] to give thanks always to God for you, brethren, as is fitting, because your faith is growing exceedingly and the love of every one of you each toward the others is increasing and abounds. And this is a cause of our mentioning you with pride among the churches (assemblies) of God for your steadfastness (your unflinching endurance and patience) and your firm faith in the midst of all the persecutions and crushing distresses and afflictions under which you are holding up,” 2 Thessalonians 1:3-4 (AMP).
