Prayer Journal: Day 216

Day 216

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. – Matthew 28:5‭-‬6 KJV

The resurrection is the most amazing miracle that God performed. Jesus rose from the dead, to eternal life. What a divine blessing!

For those who do not believe in Jesus,  death is permanent. They only have this life. But because of Jesus, everyone who believes in Him shall have eternal life. We have hope. We have a future in Heaven with our creator. All things will be made new and we will be reunited with our loved ones who have passed away.

Easter Sunday reminds us how powerful our God is. 

As I settle into my new surroundings in Idaho, I’m incredibly grateful for the new beginning that God has given our family. It is no coincidence that my husband is now the Executive Director at Life: A Center for Independent Living. Even the name of his new workplace is significant. Just as Jesus gives us life, so has He provided my husband a job where he will be able to make a positive difference in the community. We are grateful this Easter Sunday for all God has given us. Amen.

Day 169

“For with God nothing will be impossible.” – Luke 1:37 NKJV 

With our limited view of the world, we look at the obstacles before us and think that they are impossible. But with God, nothing is impossible. 

A woman who was barren, despite her old age, Elizabeth, was able to have a baby, John the Baptist. Mary, the mother of Jesus, became the first woman in history to be a virgin and still have a baby, Jesus. 

Miracles designed by God transcend what we know about genetics.

Sometimes I wonder, if we could have looked at Jesus’s blood under a microscope, what would His cells have looked like? He was divine and became flesh to die for our sins. Would his DNA be the same as any other human’s? Perhaps it would be, because He suffered in every way that we have, yet without sin. What a miracle we have in Jesus! Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 114

Day 114

Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our maker; for He is our God and we are the people of His pasture, the flock under His care. – Psalm 95:6-7 NIV 

The arrival of Baby Jesus into the world was a true miracle. Wise men traveled from far-away places to bring gold, frankincense, and myrrh to our new king. He is worthy of our worship. 

When we bow down in prayer before Him, we acknowledge how great is our God. We can be thankful that He lovingly cares for us. 

To appreciate the sacrifices He made for us, we can remember His birth, life, and resurrection. 

When we are weighted down by the cares of the world, we can stop and remind ourselves that Jesus endured more than any human ever had, and He overcame the world. His victory is ours, too. What an incredible gift He has given us! Amen.

Day 113

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. – John 1:14

With God, all things are possible. Jesus is the Word, and He blesses us by teaching us every day. 

It’s sometimes difficult to comprehend how Jesus came to Earth to dwell among us. How humbling that must have been! God gives us miracles on a day-to-day basis. With God, nothing is impossible. 

I know what it is like to have only one son. My toddler is precious. I delight in his every word and sentence. He is a smart little boy.

So, too, must it have been for those among Him to behold the glory of Jesus. He is God’s gift to humanity. Amen.
