Are you ever in awe? I am in awe of the things God does for me, and mostly, I am just in awe of how much He loves me.
I sit before you in tears. I can't even tell you.
First, to have such healing after 33 years of this pain. A pain that just wouldn't go away. Not until I truly gave it up. 18.8 miles, I don't have any idea of how many steps that is, but satan, I stomped all over you. You suck, God reigns.
Second, to see my daughter off to homecoming, she was absolutely beautiful. Pictures tomorrow. It was a day, I will never ever forget. After that I spent some time with Drew, Amanda, and Ava at dinner. The food was good, but the company was better, and at our empty seat sat Jesus. Breaking tortilla chips with us.
Then today, I went up to Grace Gospel Fellowship to hear a sermon that was unbelievable. One I so needed to hear. Keith sang "it is well with my soul". And what else is there? It is well with my soul.
No matter what I've been through, self-inflicted or not, God is a God of love. How amazing is that. It is well with my soul all because of Jesus.
I can't seem to get enough of this scripture...
Romans 8:38-39 38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
It is Well
WHEN PEACE LIKE A RIVER ATTENDETH MY WAY
WHEN SORROW LIKE SEA BILLOWS ROLL
WHATEVER MY LOT, THOU HAST TAUGHT ME TO SAY
IT IS WELL, IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL.
IT IS WELL (IT IS WELL) WITH MY SOUL (WITH MY SOUL) IT IS WELL, IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL.
MY SIN, OH THE BLISS OF THAT GLORIOUS THOUGHT
MY SINS NOT IN PART, BUT THE WHOLE
WAS NAILED TO THE CROSS AND I BEAR IT NO MORE,
PRAISE THE LORD, PRAISE THE LORD, OH MY SOUL.
AND LORD HASTE THE DAY WHEN THE FAITH SHALL BE SIGHT
THE CLOUDS BE ROLLED BACK AS A SCROLL
THE TRUMP SHALL RESOUND AND THE LORD SHALL DESCEND
EVEN SO IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL
IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL
IT IS WELL, IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL - WITH MY SOUL
