Haven’t had a such a great week physically… which is why I haven’t posted anything.
BUT, as is always the case is with our Great Father and Savior it does get better. I am still in a very painful condition, however today our Father showed me the purposes for my suffering, (because I asked) and I can say I rejoice in His love!
1. To refine me as gold (ouch! that fire is hot and it hurts–but it so very much needed)
” And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined , and will try them as gold is tried : they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say , It is my people: and they shall say , The LORD is my God.” Zechariah 13:9
2. To keep me pliable in His Potter hands ( that’s not as “ouchy”, but it is uncomfortable)
“But now, O LORD, thou art our Father; we are the clay, and thou our potter ; and we all are the work of Thy hand.” Isaiah 64:8
3. To keep me calling on Him for all needs ( yea, sometimes I think I’m pretty adaptable to my physical conditions–now I know I’m not).
“Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips. ” Psalm 17:1
I KNOW everyone of us in the Body of Christ can relate to this.
Many blessings for weekend.
