NOTE: For now, on the upcoming posts, I just have the scripture (when the title reads the day and has "scripture only") until the final day, because this is all I had prepared from Pauline Creeden's book (and I don't have access to it here, right now).
I have flown home in MN for an emergency and am not able to attend to these but hope to come back and fill them in later when I can. So for now ... Day 27-32, 34-39 have nothing more than scripture. Day 33 and Day 40 have additional parts from me. Also I have a Great HOLY WEEK planned! I do not know how long I will be in MN or return, but I appreciate prayers whenever you remember me, for myself and my spouse. Thank you!
|" This is what the Lord says:|
“Stand at the crossroads and look;
ask for the ancient paths,
ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
and you will find rest for your souls.
But you said, ‘We will not walk in it ...
My commentary is not about horses from the devotional, but just on the Bible verse and how it corresponds with a vision from a friend of my husband that I just met the day of his surgery, as we waited and she prayed with me, she shared this.
The word that the vision and this verse share is "STAND". This is why I wanted to share about this because it struck me when the first word for this verse from the Lord once again was stand.
The vision: she (Maria de la Luz, which means Mary of the light) was in the entrance of an old church with pews and she was looking toward the front to a bright light that shone on my husband and also illuminated his face so that she could see a tear running down his cheek and she also had one; and when my husband came out of surgery in intensive care, I saw that tear run down his cheek and mine ... a softening of his heart being prepared by the Lord to receive Him as his Lord and Savior, but not yet. 2 of the 5 or more people around my husband also do not yet believe, so it's a spiritual battle and front that is constantly there. It was such a blessing for me to be with my home church family the Sunday after the surgery ... however, the first day home from the hospital, I was wiped out completely by an influenza (both ends) ... so I do need the REST spoken of in this verse ... and I am more than willing to REST.
We each may be at a Crossroad in our life,
