Re-Focus

Today at church the pastor's lesson was on re-focusing our lives. Ne Year, new life as in the last post. After being home from church for a while I got a major sinus headache and had to drug up and lay down. I woke up about 9pm with the pain even worse in my head. So again I drugged up and went back to bed. I woke up to the LOUD snoring of my husband. I had the sermon on my mind. We are in a small group that meets every Wednesday. The leader is in the air force and was sent to Germany for a few months so my husband has agreed to take over leadership while he is gone. When Kev is working that leaves me to lead the group. SO I started reading the lesson the correlates from the sermon. I red the scriptures but did not feel satisfied so I did a little search of my own. The first week is on the relationship we should have with Jesus. SO I searched out how Jesus picked the disciples, then friends, then eternity. In Exodus 33:11 Moses speaks of his face to face talks with the Lord. WOW! Now God wants this relationship with me! One of the ways to re-focus in the sermon was to memorize scripture. I decided to so this so my scripture for this week is:
Isaiah 43:13 Even from eternity, I am He, and there is no one who can deliver out of My hand; I act and who can reverse it.
This verse jumped out at me as I was reading. It comforts me because I know I am in the Lords hand and no one or thing can remove me from His hand.

Now since it is 2:42am and I have to go to work in the morning I will go back to bed since my headache is now gone I think I will go to work today. I had myself convinced I would have to call off. So good night to y'all.

Hi, Thank you for your kind words at the loss of my friend Judy. She was a dedicated christian lady and i know she is with Jesus.Your post is a comforting one as i am reminded no one or thing can remove me from the Lords hands. Satan so wants us to believe everytime we goof up we are doomed. Hope you are feeling better. Dee
