THE HOLY WAYIs. 35:8 "And a highway shall be there, and a way; and it shall be called the Holy Way. The unclean shall not pass over it, but shall be for the redeemed; the wayfaring men, yes the simple ones and fools, shall not err in it and lose their way.
v.9 No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous best come up on it; they shall not be found there. But the redeemed shall walk on it.
v.10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion with singing, and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away."
It exists! It's real, a true path for me that leads to everlasting JOY! For me! I am amazed that the Lord cared enough to keep me wide awake weeee hours in the morning to receive a promise that I desperately needed. You see, it's been an incredible what some would say; "ride"! I knew when we accepted our Lords call into the ministry including also for me to be a home school mom (that means a stay-at-home-mama): that life would have its struggles for sure. But, WOW! [Yet, I must say there have been far more rewards!]
This past year, just a few months ago we lost our house because of this lovely recession (though we NEVER missed a payment); presently facing another type of foreclosure and my husband not getting work for months on hand. We have such a longing to do so much more in the ministry that it literally HURTS! Presently, my dh is facing surgery now...we see souls hurting and needing ministered to, the believers needing to be taught and a lot of work to do with the outreach ministry of our church, gobs and gobs of stuff. Yet, we find our hands tied to do nothing.
One thing I know I shouldn't do is ---DWELL ON ME. The Lord has taught me this over and over again. Lately, He has had me listen almost daily to: When I Think About the Lord . Man! When I do that--everything seems to flow right where they are suppose to be giving me His Peace and Contentment.
You see that is the HOLY WAY! When this happens, again I am filled with that 'everlasting joy'! God, You are too good to me! Thank You! I hold tightly to this Word from You!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THgccy_EyFY
