I see that I have been afforded another day as midnight is here. I am remembering some of my yesterday challenges and thanking God for His opportunity of listening for today. I am getting close to reaching my goal of seventy two (100 words) blog during my seventy second year. These pictures are Scriptures for my wellness, my praise sharing of my advocacy and resources at the Linda Faye Cancer Awareness Banquet in 2017 and my most recent position of service at RLC. I am convinced that God is not through with me yet and I wait for direction.
I was moving some papers and I caught a glimpse of the magazine, Spirit , Fall 2017. I sat down to browse because I always enjoy looking for people who are featured in the many events around the Mid-South. I am impressed by how much information is covered with the pictures and articles. I was surprised to find myself in one of the pictures and decided to feature it in one of my 100 word posts and to thank Ms. Minerva P. Little and the staff for the wonderful work to inform us of events. I appreciate and learn from each issue.
Yes I am awake and I know it is 01:33, but I just finished taking care of my HoneySi at 12midnight. I have not been doing well to meet my goal of seventy two blog posts of 100 words since our ER , ICU and readmit to the hospital since October 5, 2017. One of the blogs I follow caught my eye because of my anxiety about my husband’s Kidney failure and starting Dialysis about three weeks ago. I am taking time to read and write as I realize how life is unpredictable. I must learn to use my days and enjoy every precious moment.
I visited Redemption Life Church because it is close to my home and I have known the Pastor and the Church family for many years. I was impressed with his Title and Text so it is my focus for my 100 words. I am a caregiver and I attend church based on how my husband needs care so I am blessed to have the opportunity to fellowship. The Title, “Paint The Town Red” and scripture from Joshua 6: 20-23 gave me insight on how God positions us to be in place for prayer and praise. We must be ready “when the trumpet sounds”
I have to admit that I am distracted easily by how people react and respond in places where I find myself frequently. I have been praying for restoration and revival to start with my own soul and spirit. I was driving recently and asking the Lord to help me go in the right direction. I must say that I attended several churches in one weekend and when I looked at the prompt word lurch, the first word I thought of was church. I now pray daily for all connected churches , leaders and members to keep us free from church lurch.
Who are the people? These are the ones you watch very carefully as they are people with a sharp point and an agenda that causes distractions to the completion of what God has purposed. Sometimes they are people who use their power and entitlement to keep us from making progress. It is important that we pray for their evil to be exposed by God. We must continually protect our heart that causes us to become offended because we are in a spiritual war. This requires us to watch and pray. This is my midnight revelation and wisdom for day 21 of 40.
Midnight Move in the Ministry : Reading the Aim for Change for the Sunday School Lesson and the Keep in Mind scripture. Acts 8:35 reads “Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.” I am focusing on coming out of situation and making a move for my wellness. There are many openings that God has placed before me which I have not entered. I now see that God does say no to keeping still when evidence of integrity and honesty are removed. I know that being uncomfortable is the first step to “barrier breakthrough.”
