But Will He Conquer 'My Death'?

I was just sitting here this morning thinking about Chris' car & praying for wisdom about what needed to be done & then I read this awesome devotional from Proverbs 31 Ministries.


'Jesus showed me He is the Conqueror of all death: (even the death of car) here in this world & forever. God answered my question & prayer with a resounding 'YES!' Yes He can & will conquer my death. I don't have to wait for eternal life to experience my own resurrection of the heart. And neither do you.

Dear Lord, I praise you today for your power over all death--both physical & emotional--here on earth & for eternity. Thank you for caring about the loss in my life & bringing your resurrection power into my everyday problems. I give you my grief & pain & ask for your healing touch to bring new life. In Jesus' name, Amen.'

2 Corinthians 4: 15-18

'For all things are for your sakes, that the abundandt grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding & eternal weight of glory. While we look not at the things which are seen, but the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.'


Don't these just look yummy? They really were delish! Made-from-scratch carrot muffins with cream cheese frosting topped with toasted coconut. Ashley fixed these up as a little Easter treat for our library ladies. I love to see her 'doing' for others! These ladies are sure going to miss her this fall when she goes off to college. ;-)

I can speak from experience how God provides every need at just the right time. It is so wonderful to be able to just rest in knowing that He is our Jehova Jireh. Amy, you are blessed and I love that you know it!
