Are you as thrilled as I am that it is Friday? This week has been a long one! A good one, but a long one.
I thought I would steal a quick minute before I leave for work to wish you all a splendid weekend. Normally, I wouldn't have time to do that, but I slept a little later this morning. It never fails that on the mornings when I sleep the latest, I ended up being ready the earliest. I guess I wake up with a sense of urgency that puts an extra spring in my step.
I couldn't bear the thought of getting up when my alarm first sounded. Brian and I were up late last night, so the morning came very early. It was for a great reason, though. We have the most wonderful group of young married couples that we regularly meet with. It never fails to be a fun-filled evening of laughter!
Anyway, back to my original thoughts. Sorry, the dogs and Brian are in the background, and I can't quite get my thoughts straight. I keep hearing Brian say, "I don't know what to do, Vito." I have no idea why he is saying that, but he is standing motionless in the kitchen. I'm thinking the morning has come as a shock to him, too.
This morning, I sat down to continue my reading through Matthew. I honed in on chapter 8. The beginning of the chapter showcases Jesus' abililty to heal from disease and sickness. Oh my word, y'all, I read these stories with new eyes today. It was because of these individuals' distinct faith that Jesus healed them. I was stopped in my tracks at the healing power that Jesus still possesses. Nothing has changed in the character of Christ, for Hebrews 13:8 says, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."
So, my heart is full this morning as I remember to stand in faith as I wait on the healing power of Jesus to manifest itself in my life. Praise God for His work in me!
