Hello Gang. I hope it is a lovely day wherever you are today. It is the Lord's day today and I'm tagging in to Spiritual Sunday with Charlotte and Ginger.
I received a word from the Lord this week and it surprised me.
1. to persist in anything undertaken; maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles, or discouragement;
2. to persist in speech, interrogation, argument, etc.; insist.
3. to bolster, sustain, or uphold: unflagging faith that had persevered him.
Why am I surprised? Because after 2 years of intense illness...I'm not healed and I may not be healed tomorrow when I wake up...He is asking me to persevere thru it. He is not gonna move the mountain.
Kinda like this shot my hubby thought was hysterical of me having a cup of coffee and hammerin' away at the tack strip that held our old carpet down and was in the way of our new beautiful flooring. God loving on us is kinda like when we work on our home...does it really ever end? 1 project leads to another and next thing we know we have to not only have the floor in the living room but the closet, front 3 rooms. Everything ends up all a mess before it looks beautiful again.
Hence, the name of my blog...Bloomin'
Lord, I'm still bloomin' right here where you planted me and I'll persevere until I've run the race
1Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
2Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
