God Is So, So Good To Me

“Prayer is not the least we can do for someone; prayer is the most we can do.” I want to thank you all for your prayers over the last ten days. I felt them and I was so grateful and touched as I read each message. Thank you so much! Ecclesiastes 4: 9, "Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor."

It is hard for someone who writes five to seven blogs a week not to write for ten days! Let me rephrase that. It is hard for me not to "type" for ten days. I was writing in my head the whole time. God has a way of getting us still and quiet. What have I learned during this last bump in the road?

God is so, so good to me! Through His peace and faithfulness, He has taken me to a new level. Before the surgery I was very anxious and then after the surgery I was anxious about not doing too much - this has to be the last surgery. I know the prayers were working because He gave me such peace. Philippians 4: 7, "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." I am one of those who stays busy so I don't think but that does not take away the anxiety. Philippians 4: 6, "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

God has not failed me yet and He is faithful beyond belief! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve prayed and God has given me what I needed, not always what I wanted but always what I need! And often times I do not even know what I need! Deuteronomy 7:9, "Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments."

Why do I have to share this? Mark 5:19, "Jesus did not let him, but said, 'Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.'”
