Up until now I have been trying to work out exactly what I wanted to do with this website and what information I wanted to include. I now have a clearer picture in my mind and so hope to move forward.
Last night I went to a Touching Heaven ladies’ night at my church, Metro, on the Gold Coast. Heidi shared something at the end of the night that really spoke to me.
Heidi shared about her nephew who had been really sick when he was a baby. The doctors had basically given up and thought he would die without major surgery.
Heidi and her family prayed and the Lord did a miracle. Her nephew was healed and started to grow and develop just fine.
After a while the nephew began to go backwards and get sick again. The family started asking, “Why is this happening? We need to pray harder and believe more!”
As they focused more and more on the sickness and the problem, Heidi’s nephew continued to go downhill and get sicker and sicker.
This really spoke to me! When Heidi said “Take your eyes off the problem and put them onto Jesus!” it somehow spoke straight to my heart.
I am not struggling with health issues, but rather with finances and the worry of how we pay upcoming bills. I have been so focused on the financial situation and asking God to help us that I believe my eyes have moved off the Lord and onto the money problems!
So on the spot there at church I made a decision to move my eyes back onto the Lord and to allow Him to fix our problems and to bring in the provision that He has already promised to do in His word.
So with that said, I choose to put my eyes onto my Heavenly Father and the Lord Jesus.
I pray that you too will be able to remove your eyes from whatever problem you are currently struggling with in your own life. It is sometimes easier said than done, but still well worth the commitment to place your eyes on the Lord and to trust in Him to fulfil the promises that He has made to His children in the Bible.
Until next time, Remember to Enjoy Life, Smile at a Stranger and Make a Difference in the World!
