May I be so bold as to say...

May I be so bold as to say...If my pain and suffering is for the glorification of Godhead--God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, then it is my privilege to serve and glorify my Lord and Saviour in this manner.

Jeremiah 29:12-14
Then (Faith) will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to her. (Faith) will seek Me and find Me when she searches for Me with all of her heart. I will be found by (Faith) declares the Lord.

As I teach in the book of Mark, I am blown away by the number of times that Jesus calls out the individual. Our memory verse this past week was Mark 5:36, "But Jesus, overhearing what was being spoken, said to the synagogue official, do not be afraid any longer, only believe." I love that Jesus pulled out the individual man and spoke to him directly, after only overhearing what others were saying. He gets to the point and addresses the issue at hand. Just like Jesus cares for the synagogue official, He cares for me and you. He speaks to each of us. What is Jesus saying to you?

Isaiah 55:12
(Faith) will go out with joy and be led forth with peace

Psalm 126:2-3
The Lord has done great things for them; the Lord will do great things for (Faith). (Faith) is glad.

That is a strong statement for sure and something that I think lots of people (including myself) think about. I have the thought a lot that if everything in my life were perfect, then maybe originally I would have never had a need to seek a relationship with Christ. That sounds crazy probably, and maybe that's not how it would have been since I was raised in a Christian home but in all honestly I think it's the hard times that bring us to Christ and then after that we're able to see what an amazing thing it is to have that relationship and we start to see and appreciate the good and the bad because we have that relationship. So in that regard I am soooo thankful now that I had pain, suffering, etc because it definitely has made me realize that without Christ, I would be lost and instead I have a glorisous life because of the joy and peace that comes along with it. I'm babbling, that probably made no sense. I did like your post however :)
