Joy! Joy! Joy!

I got my Joy back!! Haha! Ever have a period in your life where you just felt like you've lost your Joy? I have. Just recently. Not just for a day or a week but for an extended period of time. We are reminded in scripture to wait upon the Lord. Wait...when it seems dark and God isn't there. Wait...when we pray but it feels like He is not listening. Wait...when all seems hopeless. Wait...Sometimes God wants us to live by Faith and not feeling. To trust that, even when we are not "feeling it" His Word is truth and that's enough. The word says "weeping may endure for a night but JOY comes in the morning. That's a promise!! Hang in there! Keep trusting and believing in Jesus! After a little while,your Joy will come! And that's a promise!! <3 Rebecca

So I am getting better. But the medication to stop the shingles is making me very sick! I truly cannot win! Lol...on another note,we have been hosting a family from south Africa in our home who is doing a seminar on witnessing door to door in the community, getting them saved, and filled with the Holy Spirit. Last saturday they went out and 15 accepted Jesus into there hearts and 2 were filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. I attended the first week but since I have been very sick, I have not been able to attend. Scott couldn't stop talking about how amazing last nights teaching was. He said he knew God was revealing some amazing stuff to him through the teaching of the word. I'm so bummed I couldn't be there! But somehow God allowed this sickness and I'm trusting Jesus to take care of me. So I must sit and rest at His feet until I get better.

Im pretty sure Job had shingles!

Shingles...ive always heard about this painful virus which is actually dormant chicken pox that has been in your body since you initially! contracted chicken pox and has deciced to re appear as very painful blisters called shingles, but I never gave it much thought until I had an outbreak that started a few days ago. And now I'm pretty sure the boils that tormented Job were none other than shingles! Well I may be over reacting a bit...but not much! Ouch! I cant believe how much pain I have been in! So I was sent home from work because some co workers felt it may be contagious. And because I cant afford to stay home from work or a doctor(I have no medical right now) or the Medication, I cried almost the entire way back home and into the arms of my loving caring husband. Who took me to the beach to pray. (The beach is where he always goes to get alone and talk with God about serious stuff) We came away with the peace in our hearts that 1. God loves us. We are His children. 2. God has NEVER not met our needs. EVER. 3. The God of the Bible can be trusted to take care of us, His children. 4. Whatever happens is because He allowed it to happen...For a reason that we may not know until we get to Heaven. So we came home and a wonderful family (who are staying with us while they teach classes at our church) prayed for Jesus to completely heal my body. And that the blisters would be gone when I woke up in the morning. ...and we know that all things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose! I believe this!! And put my hope in Jesus!!

Life is hard...but God is good!

So it has been awhile since my last blog. Actually, I forgot I HAD a blog until my daughter Melissa found it! Haha...Life these last 3 years has been difficult with little periods of joy mixed in. Complaining? No. God has been good to me so I have nothing to complain about. Just because God is good doesn't mean we sail through life with no storms. God never promised that. He did, however, promise that He would always be with us. And He would give us peace in the midst of the storms. And He has certainly done that! I'm thankful for God sending His Son Jesus to pay the price for my sin, so that in believing in Jesus Christ to be Who He claimed to be (the Only begotten Son of God) and believing in His death and ressurection, I could become a child of God. I wouldn't trade this truth for the world and everything in it!
