Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been on in a while, I have been really busy with my family making the move from Maryland to Texas, while getting ready to get back to college in a couple of weeks. So needless to say, things get a little crazy. I cannot wait to get back to school. Anyway, when I logged in and saw I had 4 new followers, I said to myself Thank You God! Haha...thank you guys for the comments as well, you have no idea how great it feels just to know that ONE person even comes across my blog. So, yesterday I was reading Luke 4:40 which says, "While the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and laying His hands on each one of them, He was healing them." At first glance, I got that while Jesus walked the earth, He healed people..all kinds of people. He did not care what how bad the sickness was or seemed, He had the power to rebuke it. But then I read the verse again, particularly focusing on "...brought them to Him". They brought what to Him? The sickness? Yes! I think ever since I was a little girl, I thought that sickness, exspecially the worst type of illness was apart of who we are as humans. But it is not. Sickness is an ill spirit which must be rebuked and cast out in the name of Jesus Christ. I came to this passage because recently my father had to go to the emergency room for back pains and as a result he is out of work for a while. When I was younger I was a severe daddy's girl and I was up under him 24/7. So now news that may seem small to others seems big to me because he is my dad, and I got my personality from him. I could sulk about it, but all I can do is pray because I know that there is a Healer better than any doctor or physician this world has ever seen. I may be a daddy's girl, but I am also a Fathers girl, and He never wants to see me down. I know I have a lot to work on with my faith, but I believe that all things work together for good (Romans 8:28).
