It is God's will for you to be saved and to know the truth of what Jesus purchased for you. Jesus went to the cross as your substitute, paying the price for Adam's sin. He suffered in His own body, and more importantly, in His spirit. He experienced the same spiritual death that entered man in the Garden of Eden. Second Corinthians 5:21 says, "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."
Jesus became one with man in spiritual death to make it possible for us to become one with Him in eternal life. He never committed one sin, but was made sin, and then He suffered sin's penalty for us.

Faith in Action
11 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for.
3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.
5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.” For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
7 By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.
8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 9 By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. 10 For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. 11 And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise. 12 And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.
13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. 14 People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.
17 By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, 18 even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.” 19 Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so in a manner of speaking he did receive Isaac back from death.

First time in years that I am looking forward to Friday! I have been working nights, weekends, and holidays for so long that it seems strange to be looking forward to the weekend off:)
This new job is great! I think I am "getting it" too:)

10 This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel
after that time, declares the Lord.
I will put my laws in their minds
and write them on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.
11 No longer will they teach their neighbor,
or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’
because they will all know me,
from the least of them to the greatest.
12 For I will forgive their wickedness
and will remember their sins no more.”

My brother owns his own trucking company, which I used to work for him for over 10 years until he lost his business during the economic crisis. He has now rebuilt his company, although it is still pretty small, but he needs someone to work in the office, full time, Monday thru Friday! I will be going to his house in the evenings to learn his computer system. I pray I will be able to learn it and work for him again! I used to be a delivery driver for him, and then the last couple of years, I cleaned the offices, the dock, and the yard. Then he went out of business for quite awhile. I never worked behind the scenes, so to speak, in the office, but I am confident that I will be able to learn it.
I have been working on call for so long, never knowing when or what time I am going to work. Sometimes, I work nights, then a day shift, then an evening shift, all in the same week. I never know from week to week, when I will be working, so I can never plan or commit to anything. Every time I do, they call me into work, and I have to cancel.
This will be so great for me to have a regular income and weekends off, and just to know what I will make a week, and what days and times I will work each week. I will feel like a "normal" person for a change!
My disability runs out this month because I have been on the "Ticket to Work" program since having cancer last year. I didn't know how I was going to support myself. God is so good, He always provides the way!
