There's Something A Bit Magical About This Place

Sunday, March 04, 2012

I just got home from my Made To Crave Bible Study. It was good, but it seemed a bit more challenging to me today. Maybe God is getting at some deeper issues and I am resisting a bit. Maybe it's because my pastor preached a very emotionally intense sermon on suffering this morning, which left me somewhat depleted emotionally (while at the same time, cleansing me and imparting hope and a seed of joy as well). And maybe it's the fact that the chest cold has taken root and I am physically weaker than I normally am. No matter...I came home dragging a bit and feeling somewhat ready to collapse.

I checked my e-mail, to find that I had a comment on my previous blog (Sick...Again) and found, to my surprise, that I had FOUR. Every comment was SO uplifting and so encouraging...I have never had this experience on SparkPeople, but I literally got a little misty eyed because I was so touched that you friends, who I have never met and don't even really know very well, would say such kind things. And I know that you meant them. I know that all of us are in this together and are here because we want to help ourselves and help each other be BETTER than we've been before. Still, it sometimes hits me that there is something a bit "magical" about it.

Thank you SO much. From the bottom of my heart. I love all the Spark Teams I'm a part of and I can't tell you how much it means to me that you stop by my page and read my blogs and send me Spark Goodies. You all are amazing. And I'm thankful to have you in my life.

Have a great week, friends! Spread the Spark!

    We have not given up on ourselves.

    We now know we are the only ones that can make it happen for us with God's help .

    We have the power to succeed or fail.

    We can choose to succeed.

    Way to Go My Sparkfriends

    So sorry to hear that you are not feeling better yet. I've got to pray harder! But you made it to church, and received several blessings. My DH was under the weather, but insisted on going to church with me. Putting God first is really important. Sunday just wouldn't feel right without going to church.
    The Made to Crave study does get to some core issues. We often get uncomfortable when God shines a spotlight inside of us, and we have to face some tough things. But He is just trying to help you see what is needed to make more room for Him in your heart. It's like your Mom told you when the medicine tasted yucky...it will make you better! Thank God that He loves us so much that He wants to have a closer relationship with us, and shows us the way.
    Feel better, lady! That's an order! A lot of your Spark friends are praying for you.
