Jesus’s Rescue

I was reading Ps. 130:7 today for my devotional and it says, “… The Lord’s unfailing love is full redemption.” Redeem in the dictionary means to buy or pay off and redemption is the act of redeeming for a fault or mistake: a rescue. And that is surely what Jesus has done. He rescued us from the guilt, shame and consequence of having to go to the devil’s home after we sin. Because of Jesus’ rescue all we have to do is ask and we will be forgiven for all those ugly, stupid decisions we have made. He will even forget about them and toss them in to the Sea of Forgetfulness. We may bring them up in our minds but He also says in His word that He is not condemning us and hitting us over the head with them. He wants us to forget them too, not bring them up over and over again. So friends, let Jesus rescue you from your past and your sins. And forget them as He has.

Before surgery 2

It was my intention to make three posts before my surgery, one for each week. But I got sick several days after the first post. I have been sick for two whole weeks with a sinus infection and miserable. But after the first week I went to the Dr and got some antibiotics. So my prayers have gone from heal me to comfort me and then back to heal me after the surgery. But in my devotions and daily scripture emails I have seen several scriptures about fear which have told me to be “strong and courageous”  and “feat not!” And 4 verses that say, “What can man do to me if God is on my side?/with me?” So I may have to repeat these things over and over in my head during surgery but God is good and He will be with me! The countdown begins. Surgery is in 4 days, Wednesday at 8:45 am. Pray for me if you can, thank you.
