My Divine Notes - Don’t be afraid, trust me. Mark 5:37

March 26, 2012

Mark 5:37 Jesus ignored their comments and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just trust me.”
A stirring in my soul points to my greater need for the Lord’s presence. I need God. I need God so much. There isn’t a new crisis to report. Things are as stable as they can be right now, and my soul yearns for a deeper walk with God.
I feel as if I’ve graduated to the next level, but that level requires total surrender…commitment. My walk with God has taken new turns, new twists, and new flavors – all very different from what I thought possible. Not that I would put God in a “possible” box. 
·        The things I thought possible or what I thought I wanted are no longer important.

·        The walk with God is more intense, more lovingly demanding. I don’t always want to go.

·        The things I thought I knew for sure are not for sure.

·        I know that I don’t know.
Only God knows. It’s all exciting.
Stay tuned.

One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…

Scripture: Psalm 92:12-15
Psalm 92:

13 They will take root
in your house, LORD God,
    and they will do well.
14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,

15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”
