.....just stay at home today and rest.
Your head hurts....you didn't sleep well....you've got a lot going on.
You could just stay home and read your Bible and devotionals and that would be enough for today.
I've told y'all before that I want to be as open and honest as I can be.
So....yesterday, those were some of the thoughts that went thru my mind before SONday school. They were totally and completely from Satan. I did have a headache and I didn't sleep well....but, I didn't allow Satan to convince me to stay home. We got up and got dressed and went to our SONday school class. When we got to the sanctuary, our friends, Mr. Edd and Ms. Kathy sat with us after they came down from choir and our pastor asked Mr. Edd to give a quick report about their trip. He told how many eyeglasses were distributed and prescriptions filled and patients seen....but the most awesome of all the numbers was that there were ONE HUNDRED FOUR people who asked Jesus into their hearts!!
Praise Your Holy Name, Lord!!!
Then....when our pastor started to bring the message, he told us that God had changed his mind about what he originally thought he would talk about. If you know me very well....then, you'll know that if I'm really into what the messenger is saying, I'll find myself leaning forward sort of on the edge of my seat, like I'm trying to grasp every single word out of their mouth. That's what happened yesterday. The message was about The Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) and it was just a continuation of something that had happened to us on Friday.
Yes....I'm learning that the "don't go, just stay at home today" voice in my head on SONday morning is just Satan trying to keep me from hearing something intended just for me!!!
2 Corinthians 2:11
.....so that Satan will not outsmart us.
For we are familiar with his evil schemes.
As I type this, I'm still as full of joy as I was when I left that church service!!!
Ain't God good?
Oh, yes He is!!!
In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine, too!!!
