GOD is so cool, loving and wonderful beyond what we simple humans will even understand.
My husband and I want to have a ministry that will touch people as we are led by what GOD will have us to do. This blog is part of it, but we want to do better and more as how GOD will inspire us to do so. We had started a “Go Fund Me Page” for Christian Ministry, https://www.gofundme.com/jjmaslinsartanddesigns.
But because he did fall ill as we were trying to get it to take off, I had to put it to the side to see where GOD was leading us then. Why was all of this happening at this time. Right at the time I started it …..things had gotten worse for him. He woke up needing to be sent to the hospital’s emergency for not being able to breathe.
But somehow we did know, it all was a distraction from the evil one to take us away from the ministry we both wanted to do.
1 Corinthians 7:35
“And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.”
But you know, when you want to do what is right for GOD because you love HIM and HIS son JESUS…..sometimes there will be s bump in the road. Our bump in the road came when he became so ill that he had to in the hospital for months. It was a very hard and trying time for the both of us.
The very people who we had thought were good friends, Christians that attended church every single Sunday and who knew the Bible from end to end looked down their nose at us and turned their back to us. Some secular people thought it was funny to make light of what we were going through and laughed too when they found out that my husband was ill.
All of the hospital stays and emergency rooms at all hours of the day was grueling. Seeing doctor after doctor until there was one doctor that tested to see what was wrong and found out what was wrong. They could not see what we were really going through, only the LORD could. I am so grateful for GOD helping and healing us. I am sure there are many of you who have gone through something similar. But I tell you from my heart, I was faithful to GOD and prayed every single night, during the day as well.
Philippians 4:6 – 4:9
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
This is all to say that all of us need to depend on GOD and not the world and man kind. It has brought us a new understanding in our faith and closer to GOD. You grow every single day I faith anyway as you learn how to lean on the LORD. Walking by faith.
But the true friends that we found to be true when told of what we were going through came through so fast and asked if they could pray for us even before we could say all that was wrong. My one good friend from childhood sent me a bottle of blessed oil that you see in the picture. She had her Pastor bless it and sent it to me in the mail for we are miles apart right now.
“Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:”
King James Version (KJV)
When you have trust and faith in GOD and need HIM to lead you in all you that you do, HE will do just that. I tell you I could not get through with all of the doctors appointments, paying bills as best as I could, making sure that he was taken care of , going to work full-time, and then the house as well. I needed and still need the strength to get through every thing still from here on in life.
The healing of the hands and the anointing of the oil is awesome. You have the faith of all of the people who blessed it and sent it to you along with your own to get the need taken care of. Faith is what you need to get this understanding. And you will get the understanding from having a loving trusting communication with GOD the FATHER and HIS beloved son JESUS.
The oil my friend sent to me that was used was olive oil. And I tell you as soon as I touched the box it came in even , I felt relief. I know that GOD and JESUS are with me anyway, but it is good to feel another blessing.
“And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron’s head, and anointed him, to sanctify him.”
King James Version (KJV)
I will say that the oil is comforting with your faith and prayers from all who are children of GOD as you are too. It is such a blessing to be around people who are believers, brothers and sisters in the LORD.
Here are some more verses on anointing oil in the Bible.
Be encouraging and encourage each other. We all may have a cross to bear that you are unaware of just because all of us handle things differently and have a different bond with GOD the Father than the next person. Let GOD be the judge of what is in a person’s heart and lean not on your on understanding.
When you get past the situation you will be able to give thanks to GOD. For now, my husband is back home and getting the rest he needs and doing better! See what I mean? GOD is good!
“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”
King James Version (KJV)
Praise and glory be to GOD ALMIGHTY at all times now and forever and forever more and through all of eternity long.
May a blessing be to all who read this post and share it.
