Wow, it has been a while since I’ve had a chance to post a Thankful Thursday. What with traveling and recovery time, it just has gotten away from me. But here are the three things I’m thankful for this week:
1. I am so thankful that about 6 years ago God miraculously and instantly healed me of the horrible migraines that I had been suffering from. It happened through the simple prayers of a little group of sweet brothers and sisters in Christ gathered around me at a camp outside of Tecate, Mexico and prayed for the pain to end. I have been migraine-free ever since, and rarely even get a headache anymore. Thank you, Jesus! (more…)
There has been an epidemic recently… everyone I talked to was tired, weary, and generally just feeling blah. I just emailed my favorite girls (my small group) to hopefully encourage all of us all right out of this tired feeling. I sure don’t like feeling lethargic, apathetic, and generally worn out. I want to be filled with the strength, joy, and peace that comes from Jesus.
So here’s what I wrote:
I noticed over the past week that there has been a lot of tiredness and weariness going around. And in talking to many of you, you have expressed the same thing. I know that I’ve been more tired than usual lately. It reminded me of what Jesus said in Matthew 11:28-30: 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (more…)
