Spiritual Sundays

singing birds

And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and besought him that he would come into his house: for he had only one daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.
Luke 8: 41-42

Commentary: The move of God in your life will test both your faith and your patience. Many of us don't have any problem praying about something, but we have a major problem waiting for God to move on our behalf. Jairus's faith is tested even after Jesus is on His way to heal his daughter. There is a delay while someone else is healed. What is happening? Through seeing someone else's miracle, Jairus can strengthen his faith in what God is able to do while he waits for his own miracle. We can do the same.
David G. Evans

Thank you to Charlotte and Ginger for graciously hosting Spiritual Sundays.

This is a beautiful reminder. And how true, that waiting on our part is always the hardest. So, the question is...how do we respond? And depending on how, I guess what kind and how much faith we have will show! God bless.

Thank you for sharing this scripture. We need to remember that God will answer our prayers in his time and according to his will. He is not on our timetable.
Blessings,

What a sweet, sweet message, Lisa. I am one of those who lacks the patience of waiting on God to move in my life, so this was inspiring to me. Thank you so much for sharing this.

I pray you are doing well. May God richly bless you!!

Hi Lisa, thank you for the scripture, a good one to ponder for certain. I can't believe you have that much snow. Ours has melted but is still cold today, in the 40's. Such strange weather! Have a blessed day!

Hey Lisa, thanks for asking about my friend, Mary. She is out of the hospital and getting stronger, but she does still have cancer, I have to remind myself. She is now using a walker to get around, as she was getting dizzy every time she got up. She is waiting to get word from the oncologist as to what drugs to begin again.......
we are still hoping for a miracle!!!

Thanks, so much!
Suzanne

Liz said...

oooooh! Does this apply to me? or what!

Lisa, we (hubs and I) are praying about fasting from Good Friday to Easter Morning..... If you happen to think about it, please mention us in prayer. There is no answer that we are seeking. Just a special time of praise. Easter is such a very wonderful time and sometimes goes unnoticed in the world.

Thanks a bunch! :)
