I recently went into a trip to a distant city to visit a sister who lives alone there. The idea was to visit her so we would comfort her and be with her for a few days. I did not want to take this trip. I did not have enough spending money for feel comfortable. And I did not want to be a burden on others to take me under their wing in distant city away from home and I was offended to be forced to comply on this mission. I did not see the point in the matter. But went to that city, visit my city, had the most wonderful time, ate the wonderful things and all in all a flawless trip, but I was insulted and did not want to blog anymore, like if that was so important in the end...
The only thing that comforted me was to return home safe and sound, beat and still feeling resentful to go on something I did not want to do so troublesome. And I take out my $00.88 dollar bible a bought over there, at my own expense! Now the Lord never leaves you nor forsakes you! I had the the most wonderful accommodations, free latte cafe, free internet access, resort apartment accomodations, pizza, fish, shrimp, pecan pies, chicken wings, mole tacitos! And I thought that would be paradise for me, but the spirit was not with me...
But as we wrote our blog on the refuge of the word of God, the daylong bus trip ride took it all out of me and I was furious. And I wasn't in mood for anything when I got back. My old greatest pastime love to share the truth was gone. I confessed my sin to God and confessed all my sins. I had come under the enemie's power ever by the amenties that were offered to me. The only thing the fomforted me was to open God's word, even for just myself. And I felt sick still to thread on the paths of Satan and his luck. I had become like him. When we come under the power of someone we become like them. And it is not until we come free that we lift up our God high, high, high, the enemy does not do that!...
["...36And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.
37And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,
38And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
39Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.
40And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.
41There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
42And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
43Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
44And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.
45Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
46My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
47Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
48And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
49And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?
50And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace...]
And sometime usually the plot of the enemy is to keep me and you from, the annoitment of the holy spirit, the breaking of the alabasted jar, filling your life with all wonder and fulfillment, and freedom to lift up God high, high, high. Usually arguments blare up just minutes before, you want to take a few moment and glorify God. And the enemy will take great expense to keep you from glorifying God, even if he has to give an all expense paid trip to a distant city, a just cause, but you will be bitter in the end will not want to come to God for any reason! So we figure that some come to glorify God and some simply don't find it in themselves to do that!...
