I know You Through A Mother's Heart

My day did not go at all like I had planned. Day off - art yes!!! No not even remotely close.
I received an email about one of the boys killed in the car accident last week. Oh boy I didn't realize he was the son of a member of the church we had attended. So......
a friend had scheduled prayer time for her and invited me. There are people around the world praying for her son to be resurrected. I know God can do it. He's done it before.

On a personal note - I am tired of doing "the religious church" thing. I want to see the power spoken of in the Bible. I want to see The Power moving in the body of Christ. Why is it in other countries you hear of people raised from the dead, lame get up and walk, blind see. The church of America seems to be limp. I don't want a bunch of don'ts, don'ts and more don'ts.

Where is THE POWER to heal the broken, the lame, the blind. Does it only exist in other countries? What do we really believe. How many of our disillusioned youth have to be destroyed before we get serious about moving in the Power of God?

I need to get into the WORD more. I need to meditate on it and memorize it. It needs to become my food source. I'm hungry for more of the Lord - HIS WAYS not my own.

I saw the most amazing thing today - a mother not grieving for a dead son, but a believer waiting on God to move. Listening for Him, waiting on Him, watching for Him, looking to Him. Her eyes fixed on Jesus - the author and finisher of our faith.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. We have suffered the loss of many friends and acquaintances this year at church. 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 is a great reminder of His love and comfort. May He make His presence abundantly known to you all at this time.
