It was almost a year ago today I went in to have a MRI. I can remember easily drinking down the two glasses of mixture the nurse gave me. It was clear, pretty much tasteless and cold. Not long after, I began to feel it working its way throughout my body. The coldness coming from deep within me and eventually overtaking my whole body. Sitting there for an hour, waiting. His Words coming from within my heart and going through my mind. Semi watching a program playing on the TV with total sorrowfulness. Distaste. I don't usually watch the talk or commentary shows. Again, I was reminded as to why not.
How easily we drink up the words of others. Those persons hosting the talk shows have been put into such a position where they are now influencing millions. Most of them came from nothing and now have a material wealth which surpasses any dreams they ever had. And so many people lap up their words, usually based on the status the dollars have put these persons at.
How far away from His Word are their words. I actually shuddered at times while listening, knowing it was from the evil and not from the coldness of the drink within me. I am so thankful His Word surpasses any I was hearing. He has and is transforming me to know, without a doubt, His are solid, never changing Truth.
The nurse came and got me. We made our way to the machine programed to take pictures of my insides. I lay there and marveled at the way ABBA has created us to invent such equipment, procedures. As the dye began to make its way through, I wondered about who it was that came up with this and then to the one who volunteered to see if it would work. So much action going on, completely unseen with my eyes, amongst the sounds that broke the silence in the room.
It was then I was really hit with the Power of ABBA.
His peace, joy, all the Fruits of The Spirit, came flowing from within and completely overtook me. Much like the drugs and dye administered to me. So many were lifting me up to Him with their words. He never isn't here. He is never not "taking action".
Driving home that day I had the heated seats on, 90 degree heat blasting out upon me, slowly driving out the coldness within. Exactly as He drives out the coldness of fear. of doubt. of sin.
I was reminded over and over as I took in His amazing and awesome paint colors throughout the drive home, just one way He shows off His Glory to us. I know He smiles when hearing me say each fall, "This one has to be the most beautiful fall I have ever experienced" - until the next one.
Not only that day, but every single day His Prayer Warriors, as numerous and colorful as the leaves on the trees, surround me, lifting me up with their heartfelt words. This is where He is showing off His greatest Glory - through them. Through each of us, as we are Prayer Warriors for others. The Creator of all, He desires most is to just be with us. Desires most of all, to share all of us with Him. To be our Bestest Friend.
To exchange words with Him. For us to lap up His Words and not the world's.
His Word continually tells me -
No matter where my steps take me in this life, I know He has me and He has it all..
