The POWER in you!

Ok...I have been convicted by a friend that I needed to write a post, since it has been a while....(thanks J. so here we go).

Right how our church is going through Ephesians. Paul has a way of writing great letters to his friends in Christ. Last week was verses Ephesians 1:15-23...crib note version...

"The power that conquered the grave...lives in me!" (Powerful stuff)

I have "meditated" on this a lot this many times I again start to think that I can do things on my own and don't need to "bother" God with my issues or prayers.(but I think he already has an idea of what they are..ha.haa)
But then I remember that God sent the Holy Spirit to live within me...and THAT power lives in me...I feel like I am not doing things alone and that my biggest fan is helping...and that anything; any trial or suffering is possible to overcome because the power of Christ lives in ME(and you too!) ...and with that ANYTHING is possible.
As we are approaching the Holidays, this is usually when I begin to dread Elijah's delivery day. But for some reason I have great peace about it this year, I don't want you to think that I still don't have great grief about him not being here or that I have "gotten over it" or have forgotten the could-have-beens with him in our lives...but the hard fact is, life does go on, and I have started to move along side it once again. I have started to see the impact of Elijah in our lives( I will post about this at a later watching) if even for a short time and the unimaginable journey that GOD has placed before me, even through the lost of Elijah, nothing I ever would have wished for, but to tell you the truth:

GOD is good in ALL things...

Ephisians 1:18-19
18I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength,

As some of you are struggling with many trials in your life or are struggling to become a believer or not blame God for the trials that this broken world throws your way...also read

Ephisians 2:8-10
8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

He has called out...with ownership to you...THIS ONE IS MINE...
