Good Evening, I just finished with my Hebrew class that pulls out the important stuff in the Hebrew language that doesn’t get translated; we were learning how Joseph was so gracious with his brothers and watching and testing to see if they had changed from their old way. Last week we found out that this is the first place that forgiveness is mentioned in the Bible. IT is a wonderful story of Grace and Redemption.
I did find out today that God is using my running to strengthen my back; I was walking up stairs and my back muscles around my ribs were crying out that they were tired and didn’t want to be worked anymore.
GOD IS GOOD!
Last night, in the middle of the night, when I was awake for hours; God was teaching me many things about how the only WORK we are to do as Christians is to BELIEVE and Receive/Take from The Father! He did show me how Working out our Salvation is grounded in Believing. When I look at Deuteronomy 30: 15-16, God says, I set before you Life and Death: Choose! I even give you the answer: Choose Life!
Every moment of every day is a Choice between Life and Death so When you Choose Life and God’s Ways you are walking in Faith and Believing God is Who He says He Is! The way He wants you to Change is to Ask Him and Listen and Watch for Him to answer; He will often give you the opportunity to Believe Him and Act, Do what He gives you to do: Change you More and More into His image.
Today, I followed Him as I realized He wanted me to go run; I figured it would be the 6 miles He has started to push me to, I was mistaken. He wanted me to run 11 miles! I followed!
God is Good!
Today my body was still needing rest; I got up early and it took until 3 to get enough God to go running.
My day gained energy after that and 8 PM I drove with Sam to the local Khol’s and picked up a fitbit for Bart to replace the broken one. I needed help to unlock the devices and find out the prices. I decided on my choice and was ready to pick it up and go but they didn’t have a black band; they needed to find one in storage. While we waited I talked to the lady who was there about how it has been such a good thing to get Bart out from behind the computer. I then started to tell her how God has been healing my body and that He still wants to bring healing to people today. God Bless her and give her desire to find Jesus!
Today has been a day of rest except for a lunch meeting with a good friend. I believe it was one of those days I succeeded in being a good friend. It was a day I listened to God and asked the question about my friend and how she is doing, instead of talking about my exciting news. I do believe I took another step into adulthood. God is Very Good.
We did find Grace, or cat took a bite of Bart’s fitbit because of the flashing green lights and broke it. We are being truthful to not using credit again. I am going to take money out of our food budget and buy him another fitbit; it helps Bart get excited about getting healthy! We are getting out of debt; following God and His way of doing things which is opposite of the World and it’s way. God is Very Good.
Today started slow; even my fitbit didn’t think I was moving after I was up for a whole hour. When I ran about 1/2 a mile into the run I started to feel sweat on my lower back; this is a new thing. When I got home and took off my shirt I had a wet sweat spot covering the middle of the back from top to bottom! my normal sweat has always been around my bra and groin areas. I did notice there was no sweat mark on the front stomach area; that isn’t as healed as the back.
When I hopped in the shower the impact of what that means hit me! I started to cry and Praise God!
The end of the day I taught a class, the first class I have taught since I have been healed; I stood at the front of the class using the whiteboard, teaching fellow students about God and His Power to Heal and about strongholds and how to be set free! Basically all the stuff I know well! God is Good!
I am Walking by the Spirit into my future! God IS So Good!
Today we took our first steps to walking debt free: It has to do with changing or attitude about credit and learning to pay cash and doing without instead of getting before we can afford it. It also means changing our attitude about feeling we are owed something because we work hard and we want it.
We have paid off our credit card bills many times but gotten back into debt very quickly; I believe it is one more way God says transform the way you think, if you do it my way you will succeed!
I have asked God for a friend and today I believe He gave me one today. I was invited to coffee at a McDonald’s for a bunch of women to just talk and get to know each other; it was defiantly a God moment! So as I was writing yesterday, about the 3 people Jesus choosing as His closest friends. I Believe God is filling these spots.
Today after praying and spending time with God; He gave me energy to run 3 miles and at the end of the run He started to plant the idea of Lunges. I did my normal 70 lunges with my log, 30 lifts, 30 curls and then before I got into the shower I thought of trying a plank. I ended up planking for 5 minutes with little problem; then I tried pull-ups and I succeeded at 8 of them! God is Working a mighty WORK in me!
Some day I will start getting up and spending time with God first thing and running early so I have energy for the day! GOD IS GOOD!!!!!
