Have you ever felt like things weren't going like you planned? Well guess what, they probably never will. Don't get discouraged though, this is a great opportunity to use one of the most powerful weapons in our arsenal. I call it the "holiday season love bomb." When in doubt advance the Kingdom, it's very effective in bringing clarity and joy to your mind.
This week we've been following up on some of our people in Piedmont park. Saturday we visited Jackie, an older woman who lives alone. God's healed her a number of times this year from high blood pressure and respiratory problems. She wasn't having a very good day we felt a heavy depression on her and in her apartment. We prayed and blessed her and her house.
Well, we went back on Tuesday with some Christmas gifts (pajamas and slippers). She looked totally different the depression was gone (praise God!!)and she was so excited to receive the gifts. She commented she hadn't really opened a Christmas gift since she was 18. What fun to bless people, it really is better to give than to receive.
Our next stop was Martha's house. God opened Martha's blind eye over the summer and she can still see out of it. She even read the Christmas card to prove it. We prayed again and blessed her as she was having some other problems with the eyes, they've been watering excessively, they seemed to start drying up after we prayed, so we'll be back to see how her continued healing is going.
Our next stop was Ms. Roland. She's an older women Who God's healed this summer from the effects of a stroke. She's been battling some chronic infection for the past few months but we're believing God for a complete healing. We haven't been to see her for a while because of travel but she really missed us and we missed her. It was good to see her again and stir up her faith. It's amazing how the Lord shows up when we encourage one another.
