So, today we hit a challenge; a snag. The weather has turned bitter cold, killing cold. And people are on the street. And we had nearly a foot of snow yesterday. It took me all day to dig out and then, I was over-tired, sacked and useless. I felt I failed them. Today, I will not fail by God’s grace!
I pray the Holy Spirit resurrects these old bones one more time; and that my strength is sufficient, that, as with the loaves and the fishes, that which is insufficient will be made to be sufficient by His grace.
For the miracle that sustains me is this: that medically, I should be dead or an invalid, but God holds me up and I am strong, and able to serve, through the Spirit that dwells within me. That, even though I have weakened bones and anemia, He holds me up. Just as Abraham and Sarah could produce the son that became the Nation of Israel when they were a hundred years old, I am able through a miracle to do God’s work.
Because, it is not merely kindness for which I work. Kindness is a vehicle; a sermon preached in deeds, not words, and sung in a loud voice.
And here is the voice: constancy. Always present; always stepping up; always cheerful; always eager to serve. Always accepting, forgiving, ignoring insults, and the faults of others. This is why I HAVE to do this.
I am sorry I wasn’t able to be there yesterday. For, with Yeshua, there is no half-hearted measure.
But here is the key to the kingdom: He erased yesterday with His blood; and he has sealed us for the future with the Holy Spirit. No past-no future to worry about. What remains? TODAY! “Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your heart.” Hebrews 3:7.
