Thankful Life - January 21, 2016


As I sit here writing this I realize that complaining is contagious (and like a cold you do not want it to spread), edification is healing and leads to more edification and more healing.

I am humbled LORD... sometimes I make "rash" comments or react wrongly because of something in my past - an experience, a trigger, a sin.... and today as I responded to something someone else said.... I HEARD GOD SAY, "Let it go. FOCUS ON ME".
And my heart was grieved that this is taking so long for me to see in my life. "God forgive me", and in the same thought, "God already forgave me"!

When we align, fellowship and "run to" our Father, He will show us what needs to be changed, both outwardly and inwardly in our thoughts.
He is faithful!

"We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ, 6 being ready to punish every act of disobedience, when your own obedience [as a church] is complete." 2 Corinthians 10:5-6 (AMP)

Jesus Predicts His Return to the Disciples
16 “A little while and you will see me no more, and again a little while and you will see me. 17 So some of his disciples said to one another, “What is this that he is saying to us, ‘A little while and you will not see me, and again a little while and you will see me,’ and ‘Because I am going away to the Father’?” 18 So they kept on saying, “What is this that he is saying, ‘A little while’? We do not understand what he is speaking about!”

19 Jesus knew that they were wanting to ask him, and he said to them, “Are you deliberating with one another about this—that I said, ‘A little while, and you will not see me, and again a little while and you will see me’? 20 Truly, truly I say to you, that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will become sorrowful, but your sorrow will change to joy. 21 A woman, when she gives birth, experiences pain because her hour has come. But when her[a] child is born, she no longer remembers the affliction, on account of the joy that a human being has been born into the world. 22 So you also are experiencing sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy from you. 23 And on that day you will ask me nothing. Truly, truly I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name, he will give you. 24 Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete."
~John 16:16-24 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
