I will leave you with this photo I took when I went to Redondo Beach over the holidays. Do you ever wonder how places get their names? This beach is lovely, and yet Redondo, which means round in Spanish, just doesn’t make sense to me. So before I get redundant about Redondo Beach I wish you a happy day!
Early this morning I was listening to music and I began to pray. During my praying, this stranger came to my spirit, and I began to see the emotional turmoil they had experienced in their lifetime. I was grieve and hurt for them as I prayed, asking God to comfort and heal them. As I was doing this I thought to my self that the church makes interceding something that they ought not to.
Intercession is not just a gift, it is also a job for the spiritually strong. It is you going into the trenches of war. The pain I feel is not glamorous, and yet people make it look like interceding for the souls of others is something to be applauded and rewarded; much akin to receiving an Oscar. What they don’t understand is that praying for others is NEVER about them; but about feeling someone else’s pain…
I read this and was fascinated. If you are middle aged, give yourself a pat on the back,you must be doing a lot of things right to have gotten this far in life. If you haven’t reached middle age yet, remember we all get there 🙂 and when you do, it’s actually pretty darned good!
Have you ever met someone and you just knew by casual observation, that they are going to be somebody? Well I met this young woman last summer and she is exactly that. Some people come into the world to change things for the better and I believe she will. Some people are born knowing there purpose for being here right from the very start; this young woman certainly does. She is a delight to anybody who will take the time to really get to know her. I’m so glad I met you!
