Sweet Judy! 💜
Thank you so much for taking the time out to read my post and respond. Being gloomy and sad is so far from who I normally am that it's weird to even reread what I wrote you. I'm just trying to be honest and not hide from the Body; or pretend that I'm super woman!
Every time I've gone through something very devastating in my life, the body of Christ shines like the glory of the Son and I know to call upon them when I need to be lifted!
The Lord says two are better than one because when one is down there is another there to lift the other one up!
That's what we do for each other! We lift each other up and we help each other stay focused on Jesus!
I've given myself an allowance for emotion but then I quickly make sure I'm searching for the promise and the provision attached to every circumstance of my current situation!
After my last post, my 12 year old Puppy died right in front of me and I thought; "Okay, Lord.. You're turning me into a GIANT because I have never, EVER experienced such an onslaught of possibilities in this short amount of time - in my entire life"!!!
However, through each challenge, one thing is constant and secure and that's the faithfulness and the lovingkindness of our sweet Jesus!
I keep telling myself; "Stop identifying yourself as a soon to be divorcee or lonely person or a rejected person! NONE of those are my titles or my Truth!
Truth be told, long before I was ever someone's wife - I was always HIS BRIDE! Before the earth was made, before the sun and moon were formed, before He hung one star in the sky, I WAS HIS!!
This is an identity that has been lost for 23 years but I'm reclaiming it! I told the Lord; "You're my husband, You're my best friend, You're my satisfaction, You're my everything! You're the One who knows me best and loves me most and there's nothing more on this planet that I want more than to be with Him!
So that's where I am from morning until night. In fact currently I am having what I call my "Jesus Date" . Every night at 7:00 p.m. I come into my bedroom, light some candles grab my two puppies, my Bible, my journal and usually some chocolate and I have a date with The King!
It's my favorite part of the day! It's where I feel so safe and secure and home and loved! I'm just sitting here right now and He's pouring His devotion and romance onto me, it's beautiful! 🙏💙
I'm very sorry that you're still dealing with the effects of covid. My husband and I had it last year and it was no bueno but Jesus pulled us through it and we're totally healed! I will tell you that the book of James was something God used to get me through it.
The Lord told me to scrape out the joy of every second. So that's what we did for 3 months. My husband and I just sat at home scraping the joy out of every moment and it really worked! We got through it - In Joy! So that's what I'll pray for you!
I'll pray that you can scrape the joy out of the situation and know that the Lord did not cause this but He will use it!
You'll come out of this better and stronger than before! I speak the love of God to permeate every ounce of your body and push out any remaining sickness or feelings of yuckiness! I thank you Jesus that Judy is healed and whole because 2,000 years ago you took covid on the Cross and when you were raised to new life, covid did not go with You!
And now we are seated with You in heavenly places! As You are in heaven so are we on this earth! Do you have sickness in Heaven? NO! So neither do we on this Earth!
All anyone can ever do is RUN to HIM and consent to be loved! Don't try and be strong, He is your strength! Just fall in His chest and allow His GREAT BIG DADDY ARMS to wrap around you and fill your heart with gladness!!!!
God bless you Judy! Please keep me up to date on your progress and I will do the same for you! Jesus is amazing and He has amazing plans for us!!!! 🙏💙
