I (Nina) was reading through my journal this morning; some of the first entries I had written in my (then) new journal I got for Christmas from my dear husband. The year was 2002.

At the top of the journal page is this scripture, "I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me." Proverbs 8:17

Dated, April 28, 2002 (and I quote)

     "(I do not set aside the grace of God.) We went to church early for prayer time. I developed a stomachache and it seemed to be getting worse. I had thoughts (the devil) of going to the car or just sitting in the bathroom, but I said 'No, I'm going to pray.' The Lord told me, "I am holy and that is all that matters right now."

I thought of the angels in heaven crying, 'Holy, holy holy.' The Lord gave me a song about His holiness. As I was singing stomachache was totally gone. I related God's holiness to a consuming fire. He burns away all that is 'self,' if we allow Him to.  Sickness is part of 'self.'

As I focused on Him and His holiness - He was able to consume the sacrifice. I am reading a book called, "Forever Triumphant." by F.W. Huegel. Revelation is coming. Give me a deeper revelation, Lord, of "It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me." Amen!"

I don't normally share my personal journal thoughts/entries, but I felt in this case, it was important. Someone needed to hear this. And probably more than a few 'someones.'

                               Blessings on your life in this new year!
