If we truly desire to follow the Spirit, then we first have to have that earnest desire, and we have to listen.
We don’t always need to preach, or attempt to say something truly profound.
Sometimes, we just need to testify. We need to publicly tell what God has done for us, and how He has brought us out of the situation we have found ourselves in.
First of all, I wish to express my sincere love and thanks for all of you that have prayed for me, especially this past year.
There is no way to describe life after Septic Shock. There’s just not.
Because the blood pressure falls so low at the onset, their is a loss of blood flow to the entire body. That includes the body, mind and yes, the spirit.
Precious LORD in Heaven, I cannot tell how far He has brought me; from there to here.
I heard a dear one on here (Facebook) apologizing for asking for prayer. I can say, if you truly seek to put God first and say only what He would have you to say, you don’t desire to draw attention to yourself.
A true ministry, is really all about Him. But there are times, that we need to make our needs known to our brothers and sisters in the LORD.
There’s nothing wrong in letting people know what we need prayer for. It’s honest.
I heard a minister talking on a program about how much closer and deeper we can get in God through our trials and because of our suffering.
Apostle Paul gloried in his infirmities. I must be real; I haven’t quite arrived there yet.
What I do know, is that much of what this man said was true. See, I think a lot has to do with whether our heart is right.
Too many times, we may have lost sight of the fact that God, knows exactly where we are and totally about what we are going through. He does.
We struggle with why God allows things to happen to us; why some sicknesses, trials, tests and tribulations have fallen upon us.
Truly, if we are honest, we don’t always know so much about how God works. So much shallowness and the lack of the deeper things of God, the lack of encouragement to really know Him and seek those deeper places, hinders us.
Did Jesus not say, if your seek Him, you are going to find Him? It could be about how far you look; how much you desire.
See, I didn’t intend to write this much; I didn’t even know if I could.
God has kept me from writing or trying to minister here, until He was ready for me to resume.
Follow Him children. I have never meant that more in my entire life.
I’m not the same person; I simply couldn’t be. I can see it; I know it.
It might be that I have a deeper knowledge and walk with Him, than I ever knew before.
Was it worth it? Yes, it was worth it!
If you want to be made an overcomer, then testify.
Tell about what He has done in your life and where He has brought you from.
Let others know, that in spite of all your pain and suffering, you still desire to follow Him and that you love Him.
It’s not always possible; not when you’re right in the middle of torment and incredible pain.
That’s real now. Testify to others, about how He will bring you through.
Give Him all the praise and honor. If you made it through, He had His reasons.
He’s brought me from a mighty long way. You know, He trusted me.
