The meeting was very uplifting.Papa shared more on the church: discipline to keep it holy to God, and worship as a new priesthood to God. I love the way Jesus has opened up the way into the holy of holies so that I can enter and stand before God blameless and plead with Him before His mercy seat. It’s a shame I don’t take advantage of this ability so much more often.
I want to study through all the passages Don gave us, and also the ones Papa gave us, and Mark five more in depth, and I need to get studying John so I can teach it, and there’s just so much I want to study! I want it all memorized! I want to be able to find the verses I’m looking for, to share stories and examples, to teach those around me. I keep filling my Bible with sticky notes, because I’m really feeling like I should be able to share important passages or topics with friends at a moment’s notice. I’m going to need the Lord’s help, I know, because the only way I’ll get it done is if I get up early in the mornings and study and pray. I must seek the Lord. I must point others to Him. My very spirit demands it—His Holy Spirit, really.
It's hard for me to watch others struggling. I simply want to fix everything and make it come out right. I am so grateful for the protection and nurture of a godly family.
Lord, so many orphaned children
Begging for Thy touch of healing
Seeking Fatherly affection
Offered by Thy resurrection.
Why am I a privileged daughter
Filled with Thy own living water
And the love of earthly parents?
Lord, is it so I might share it?
