Zeal

I read of Phinehas and his zeal for the Lord.

"Zeal" - a feeling of strong eagerness; excessive fervor; readiness; prompt willingness; tireless devotion; diligent enthusiasm.

Oh Father, give me that zeal for You.

Romans 12:11 encourages us, "Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord."

Let's be zealous for the Lord today girls!

(Although I am continuing posting daily, I'm sorry that my words here are few this week. I know that 'little' can become much in the Master's Hands. I trust my life will settle down soon and I will again be able to devote time to writing here. Thank you to all of you who are continuing in prayer for my family. If you want an update on my Dad, please visit my other blog, Ponderings.)

Joy,
Sat. 7:45a.m.
Today is a new day..."Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly." Isaiah 58:8
Dear Lord, I do not know what is best for Joy's Daddy, but I do know that You do. You are everywhere present. Therefore, Your healing presence is with Joy's father, as he lays, helpless in his hospital bed. Whisper to him as he sleeps and cause a peace like only You can give to come over him. No matter, Lord, whatever his needs are, Your healing energy is greater than what any doctor could do. Guide the medical team with Your wisdom and place your power over them. Allow what needs to be done to be completed in Your time. I pray that You, Lord, will take away the worries and fears of Joy and her family; keep all of them fresh and alert and receptive you, dear God. In Jesus' name, Amen.
PS Joy, loved your post today...even when you think it is short, it's sweet to all of us! I pray that you have a "tireless devotion" to our heavenly Father today to get you through. I pray too, that He gives you an abundant amount of fresh energy to be alert to details that may come up at the hospital. Loving and praying for you! Lori - Mesa, AZ
