Having been away from your blog for a couple of weeks, God saw me today under my fig tree, and in His perfect timing brought me back to just what I needed to hear - praise Him :-) and, thank you too to Andy, and all at Soul Survivor, for your wonderful teaching, inspiration and encouragement as we grow in the Lord. Feeling nurtured; God bless you all; and "Happy New Year" xx

Thanks Andy. What you said was really similar to what my pastor's wife and best friend after Jesus said to me yesterday. I was low and said "I'm at the end of myself; I feel like I'm getting ill again (9 1/2 year problem), and I feel like screaming through all your church services." She just laughed and said "It's really OK - you can scream all you like; we'll just pray for you more." Then she said "But I'm angry too - not with you, but against the illness. I'm not having it - I'm going for a miracle. I'm going to fight spiritually for you, and you need to fight too; your fight is to believe." I left feeling a million times better. I just thought - is there anyone else on here who needs a miracle?

Wow! Praise Him indeed! This is an amazing passage. I loved a few things in particular here: 1. Baptism. I've just been baptised 1 month ago (for the first time) having come to faith about 9 months ago. And wow - I'm just so grateful that God made this incredible way for us to draw near to him - not just to be baptised with water but with His Holy Spirit, which then comes to dwell and work in us. What an incredible blessing. 2. I love that when people meet Jesus they immediately want to follow him, and then they want to tell everyone about Him - especially their loved ones. I totally have this urge to share! I still struggle with the words to do so effectively though and pray Jesus would lead me in this. Barbara - welcome back from underneath your fig tree! Isabel - bless you. Praying for a miracle for you. Nothing is impossible with God.

ps. Isabel - I didn't mean that to sound flippant. It sounds like you've been battling something really tough for a really long time. And although I do believe nothing is impossible for Him, I felt that might sound a bit flippant in the face of what you've been up against. So - apologies if it did. You'll be in my prayers for strength, courage, perseverance - and peace. xx

No Charlotte - what you said really encouraged me - thanks so much! Your posts are ALWAYS so encouraging. You've got a whole load more of Jesus than you realise. I LOVE new Christians. The absolute best miracle ever is when He saves people. You know what - please don't spend too much time praying for me - He's already heard your prayers and He's got me safe and He is and will heal me. But massively enjoy Him, people are seeing what He's done in you. It's great you're telling ppl. Go for it! As for me I've not expressed it properly - although the first period was awful, when I was at my lowest point ever, He met me again and since then, even in relapses every day has been like heaven. I've seriously got LOADS to celebrate. Through it He's done stuff inside me that I could only dream about. He's saved me from death - and other things - several times. He's done miracles to provide. I know God fights for the needy and He is in absolute control over anything He lets us go through. He's been teaching me to trust Him through the storms. Inside I've never been happier. I'm looking forward to see how God uses it - and it'll be amazing to be completely well again too.

Sorry - I didn't say that right - cos although God is ultimately in control, there are still awful things which happen to people which God hates and He feels deeply. I don't understand it, but I know that He's still good.
