More than Conquerers

1 Peter 1:6-7New International Version (NIV) 6 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. James 1:2-5 NIV  2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that...

What does it look like?

I’ve continued to think on what it means to be more than a conqueror.  For me I would like it to mean 1)  A meaningful time with my mother.  Lucidity would be best.  But shared memories, good memories are still good. 2)  A gentle death.  Not one marked by so much suffering.  http://backdoorlogic.blogspot.com gives me hope. 3)  Grief as one who has hope in Jesus, not as one who does not have hope. 4)  Peaceful relationships.  Especially with family. 5)  A chance to tell my mother every day how much I love her. The Bible says it this way: Romans 8:37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. We are more than conquerors because we cannot be separated from His love–not death, not the future, and not LBD.  And this is the love I have for my mother.  Nothing can separate that love–not even...

A Life Journey

Seems like LBD is a death sentence but today there was so much life.  Since we are taking shifts caring for mom, for 1/2 of the day I do nothing but work with her to cook, garden, take drives, etc…  I was thinking today that her doc told me that if she wasn’t being cared for at home, she would be in geriatric psych inpatient.  But at home she is happy, laughing at some of her hallucinations, doing things, and living.  Granted sundowning is a nasty part of the day.  But for me I’m getting to love my mother in different ways.  She doesn’t mostly know who I am anymore, but she knows I’m someone familiar and I think she knows I love her.  So today was about living life.  And it was...

Hope Rising against Hope

God is the God of the impossible. On Wednesday we went to the International House of Prayer to get prayer for my mom.  They prayed healing and such over my mom, but they also felt I had a spirit of heaviness.  (She prayed sweetness in my spirit.)  She is right…about the heaviness.  But how does heaviness help anyone? For some reason the Lord gave me a measure of hope this morning.  LBD is a death sentence but Jesus is resurrection power.  I can go the traditional route of medicines and despair but if you keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, it’s called insanity.  What if there is another way? I remember my friends who lived in the Amazon jungle for 30 years.  When I asked them what medical needs they had, they said none.  The only they need is dentistry, but other than that disease is pretty much non-existent from their...
