I Am Amazed

Yes, I am amazed at what God can do with someone like me.  I am nobody, hardly have any friends, yes, I have some good acquaintances, but they are not close friends.  I do have a very few friends but they live far away from me, I wish we were closer.  My husband was my very best friend and now he is sleeping in Jesus. I am talking about earthly friends.  I do have a very best heavenly friend and I am so thankful for that.  I have been praying for a close earthly friend that loves Jesus, but so far haven't found him yet.  Yes, it is time to get on with my life and see what God has in store for me.  I am looking for a friend, not a mate, at the present time.  A good Christian friend that really loves Jesus and will bless my life with Jesus love.

I had a great desire to do something for God, but didn't know what to do, I love to share what He has done and is doing in my life but I didn't know how or what to do and a friend was visiting me from Oregon and was telling me about her blog and the thought came to me that I might be able to do something like that and here I am, sharing my faith every morning with you and many others.  I am amazed.

I was pleading with God to give me the blessing of His fullness that He promises in Ephesians 3 and as I listen for His instructions each morning, I have been filling up with His fullness, His word is the miracle that I needed and blogging has filled that need.  I am amazed.

I asked God for happiness.  After my husband died, it seemed that happiness flew away and wouldn't return, but as I have been sharing with you each morning, happiness is returning, day by day.  I am amazed.

I asked God for help when I was left alone and He sent my son to be with me and help with the upkeep and also with finances.  Just what I needed when I needed it, I have also been blessed to have my grandson with me for a few months and getting acquainted with him.  He is a sweet boy.  Another amazing event and answer to my prayers.

I am amazed that God would send His ONLY Son to die such a cruel death just for me and just for you.
Doesn't that amaze you?  It should.  Who am I that He should make such a sacrifice for me?  It is amazing and what is more, He keeps on blessing day by day and it never ends.  Amazing love, and you are included in it too.  What will you do with that love, will you show disdain for it or will you accept it for what it really is?  Will you serve Him with your whole heart?  Ask Him to come in and dwell with you and then spend time with Him each day and you too will be amazed at what He will do for you.  More amazing events later as they occur.  Grandma Joan
