It has been seventeen days since I last posted. I have been pondering this verse a lot recently. Last weekend I spent four days in beautiful Wales. It was a great time of encouragement, listening to the word of God and spending time with people who have become very precious to me over the last few years. The last week or so has been busy, tiring, at times non-stop but I have spent some quality time with God too. I feel ready to pick up my pen, as it were, and carry on. Sometimes we just need to stop, take a step back and recharge our batteries. So I am back!
Thank you for all the support. I really appreciate it 🙂
I shared this with a friend today. He is going through an awful situation right now. I encouraged him and reminded him that when we are weak, God is strong. He is my strength when I weak. In my weakness God works.
95/365: Alive — Yesterday I wrote about the burial of Jesus. I finished saying that death could not beat Him. Today Christians remember that on the third day Jesus rose from the dead. He defeated the grave. He is alive. I believe that He lives inside of me. I thank God often that Jesus died and rose again. It is by His grace and mercy that I am free. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus my sins are forgiven and I have eternal life.
He said to them “Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day.” (Luke 24 verse 26)
Recently as part of my word challenge for this year I wrote a post about anger and how I felt towards God over the loss of my brother. Since then it has played on my mind an awful lot. I have managed to speak to other people about the anger I am feeling. I wanted to share with you a little of the journey I have been on.
93/365: Blood — Today marks one of the most important days in the Christian calender. Christians across the world will be remembering the day that Jesus died. His death was cruel and painful. He did not deserve what was thrown at Him. It should have been us on that cross. He was nailed to the cross because of us, because of our actions. But God loved us far too much to see us die. I would imagine that He loved Jesus so much more. His love for us saw Him sacrifice His only son. Jesus suffered and died on that cross because of God’s love for us. Jesus died so that we could live. We needed a Saviour because we would never be able to save ourselves.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3 verse 16)
When it comes to answering prayer God is always faithful. There are so many examples in my life where God has provided for my needs and those of the people around me. He has never been too late in his provision. His timing has always been perfect!
