Tuesdays Together (#11)

Welcome to TUESDAYS TOGETHER (in the WORD).

I am so glad that you have joined us.
Our goal/purpose is that we are reading God's Word and we are sharing with each other a "nugget" of what we are learning. Join with us - at any time. We welcome your comments and/or your "nuggets" of what you have read and/or your link to your blog post. You do not have to be a "blogger" to join in on the encouragement and sharing together.

This week our reading (posted on the side bar) was from Proverbs 6, Psalm 25-26, and
I Timothy 1-5.

And once again, I come to you with a couple of passages from the Psalms. There is such comfort there. There are answers when you have REAL questions. There is peace in the promises. So I beginning here this week:

Psalm 25:1, 2(a)

" To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
O my God, in you I trust"

And that is just what I did. I lifted up my soul/my heavy heart. I lifted up my precious Mom and her health and her surgery. My God is trustworthy. He is faithful. He is true to His Word... always. Oh my God, in you I trust...

And I loved this verse this week too. You see, one thing Mom has said to many people this week, is that she is "God's Favorite. " And she is joking.... sorta.

Look at this passage:

Psalm 25:14
"The friendship of the LORD
is for those who fear him,
and He makes known to them his covenant."

After watching her with this surgery, I think I would have to agree. She has a true "friendship" with our Lord.

Here is the first part of this verse from the Amplified Bible:
"The secret of the sweet, satisfying companionship of the Lord have they who fear, revere and worship Him" Isn't that good?

It has been amazing. She has had NO PAIN. Not even a Aleve until Monday night - and then it was just one. She even said she was just uncomfortable - and took one before she went to bed. That is it! There is no doubt that God's hand has been on her. Lots of prayers have been prayed on her behalf and I truly believe that her recovery is a testimony of the Lord's work on her body.

So, I close thanking all of you for joining me in prayer on her behalf. You truly blessed my heart with the emails... the calls... the comments (here and on FB). That is what the Body of Christ does. The joys are multiplied together... and the sorrows are halfed. Sweet Blessings to you all!

Now, your turn.
Remember... leave a comment... share your thoughts... and if you blog - link with us.

I love how God speaks to us through His Word, and I'm especially glad that He used this Psalm for you, DeeDee. I'm so happy that your Mother is doing well. No pain meds - that's amazing! She could have needed the heavy stuff, "but God...". I'm so glad His handprints have been all over this and love your Mother's confident attitude. I truly admire her trust in God and her assurance that His favor is resting with her. That will go a long way in her healing process and help more than any drug she could ever be given!

Great is His faithfulness! I, too, found great comfort in this Psalm this week...and especially this morning as I read it again. So grateful for the Lord's answer to prayers for your mother. Keeping her in our prayers...and you.

Don't you love how God uses his word to speak right into our hearts? This week, I am hovering in Psalm 139. And it's as if it's the FIRST time I've ever read it! I love that.

These scriptures that you share are so beautiful. Praying for you and for your Mom.

:-) Susan

Hey DeeDee...
I love that verse from the Amplified... the sweet, satisfying companionship of the Lord...

That just overwhelms me that we can have a companionship with the Lord that is sweet and satisfying, that He would want that with us!

What a testimony your mom is to the power of prayer and the blessing of having that sweet companionship with our Lord...

I actually thought of "Mamaw" and You when I was doing this reading and How I just KNEW you both would be "trusting" and lifting up your souls in complete and utter faithfulness and peace. I pray that I would be able to do the same under these circumstances. Thank you for the example!
