Prayer Journal: Day 223

Day 223

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. – James 4:10 KJV

Overcoming an illness can be humbling. When we are used to doing everything, it can be humbling when suddenly we can’t because of our health. When I had tested positive for COVID-19 last September, I never would have imagined that I would be sick for more than two weeks or become a COVID-19 long hauler. I never would have thought that being sick for that long would set into motion some drastic life changes, such as a move to another state.

The Lord gives us strength in sickness and health. He knows our thoughts and fears and can heal us from any ailment. We can be grateful when our health returns. When He lifts us up, He lifts us physically and mentally. Amen.

Day 222

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. – 1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV

God loves us so much that He gives us an inheritance and a covenant. When God blessed Abraham, He asked Abraham to move, and to go to the land that He promised. 

I received the keys to my new house on 4/9/21, and I couldn’t help but marvel at how much the Lord has given me. I wanted a safe place to live, and He delivered more than I could ask or think. 

We have hope that we will be with our Heavenly Father forever, and the relationship continues no matter where we are.

We have faith that Jesus saves us, heals us, and blesses us. We are incredibly fortunate to have a loving God who provides for all our needs. Amen.

Day 215

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Philippians 2:9‭-‬11 KJV

Jesus needed no earthly credentials to be exalted. He made Himself of no reputation while many others spent a lifetime building up their resumes. Jesus didn’t need an MD to be a healer. He didn’t need a PhD to become a teacher. Our Lord did not need to attend seminary to become a preacher. His name itself is holy. 

At the crucifixion, Jesus offered up everything He possibly could…His own life, so that we could live. No greater sacrifice exists. We can be thankful for His life and purpose. We can trust in Him.

As I drive the final stretch of my move to Idaho today, I reflect on the day that Jesus rested in the grave on the Sabbath. He endured so much for us and I am thankful. Amen.

Prayer Journal: Day 214

Day 214

For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him – 2 Corinthians 5:21 KJV

How incredibly lucky we are to have a Savior in Jesus! To have lived a life without sin, Jesus accomplished an amazing feat. But to lay down His life for our sake, there was no one more giving that Jesus to have lived on this Earth. 

We can sing songs of praise and thank God for the doors He has opened for us. Because He lives, we can have eternal life.

The Lord gives us more than we ask or think. We don’t have to feel like we lack anything, because He is an amazing provider! He gives us a place to live, a loving family, and neighbors who help us. He blesses us each and every day with a new beginning.

As I drive today to Idaho, I thank God that this moving day falls on Good Friday. God is good! Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 213: I am Moving to Idaho

Day 213

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. – Isaiah 43:18‭-‬19 KJV

As my family embarks on a new journey by moving from Nevada to Idaho, I reflect on the new blessings that God has brought into my life.

Even though I tested positive for COVID-19 on September 1, 2020 and suffered from COVID-19 long haulers symptoms, surviving the ordeal has strengthened my faith and brought me closer to God. I am grateful that my husband was able to stay home during my recovery to take care of me and Jacob. I am thankful that my husband was able to find an Executive Director job in Idaho. Our house in Nevada sold within three hours of listing it, and we were able to buy a duplex in Blackfoot, ID. 

Instead of remembering how difficult my illness seemed at the time, I am grateful for the new opportunities that God has brought into our lives. He makes way for new blessings. Amen.
