162- God Keeps Loving Me
November 4, 1985
In an intercessory prayer letter a man testified that he had been at a point where he felt he did not have anybody on his side, even his wife. God had stripped away his entire support system, isolated him in the midst of a busy life. Yet during that season he made the most important decision of his life. He decided God was enough.
Lord, I feel like I’m in and out of that position. When we had to give up our dream of going to Bible school in NY the disappointment devastated me. My life was shaken up, friends left me, I left friends—they moved away or we just fell away from each other. I quit everything. But You were enough! You saw me through my sadness. After that I accepted that Dan was doing Your work at the church for hours and hours every day. And again. You blessed me with so much grace to get through it. You truly are enough!
And You just keep loving me no matter dips and snags happen in our relationship.
Jan came over on Saturday to watch my kids while I went to the store. She read my Streams in the Desert devotional and my Bible. She rested in You. She has had a great desire to do daily devotions but just hasn’t taken the leap. Being here today she has been in touch with You. She is radiant. Bless You! That she experienced You HERE is a gift that I will always cherish.
Later she said on the phone—“I’ve always said of Georgann, “how does she do it?” But now I know. You draw your strength from Jesus daily.
Later, I felt the Lord say of Streams—this is something you can read and understand in your mind without My Spirit’s anointing. Go back to reading the Word and My Spirit will anoint it for you, to teach you and to comfort you. Get back to reading the Bible.
Boys up in the night, sick with croup, etc.
Today, Steve and Mark are sick, Tim is recovering.
I got up at 6 to go on my walk– 30 minutes. Good prayer time.
It was a GOOD day. School went WELL for Tim – 1 hour.
Put Daniel in the play pen—new idea.
Mark feeling quite sick, so I called the doctor: humidifier, cough medicine, Tylenol.
I kept my cool. Jesus was glorified!
