I got home from being gone 4 days in time to take Kathy and 2 others to the airport. The two others are her sis and one other who works for her sis. They are on a buying trip for her sis’s gift shop. My grandson who lives with us says he has a hard time adjusting to all the on-going changes in this house. He’s never sure if he’s coming home to one or the other or both. He says the house is different at each stage.
OK, back to reality. My journey seems to be halted for an important reason right now as I stated yesterday. Tomorrow I’m being interviewed by one of our pastors who is delivering the sermon. He said he wants to use this means to acquaint our congregation with the new recovery ministries we are starting. At this point we are starting with a training for anyone who would like to be a teacher/leader with one of the content areas. It was Thursday that he asked to do it this way. I was glad then. Today, I feel unworthy and incapable. How these emotions of ours lead us up and down the rocky road of human living.
I was journaling this morning about all of this. Instantly this verse came to mind: “My sin; oh the bliss of this glorious thought, my sin not in part but the whole, is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more. Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord, oh my soul!” Satan so wants to continue to attempt to defeat you and me with the past we have lived and even with our present struggles from our past. Yet, God has promised us that we are made whole by His precious Son’s sacrifice for you and me. I know this but Satan keeps wanting to test and see if I believe it for this current time. I’m saying, “Yes, I do believe it and in spite of any past, present, future sin, I will stay on this journey of living for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!”
