September 1st Scripture Memorization
In a prior post I mentioned me and my family were at wits end with a seven year neighbor dispute turned ugly. (Think Jezebel!) At the beginning of the seventh year I knew it was all going to come to a head. This is a situation I have prayed about every which way until finally there where no more words. Only hope. Faith. Trust.
For me, this was a first. I have a dear friend who told me I am a woman of many words. (This compliment could go either way!!!) I prayed for seven years over the same situation. HE was diligent in peeling back the layers, until finally there was nothing left. Only groans. Opportunity to grow and stretch my faith! I kept pleading for a miracle here. I had to be willing to wait until HIS proper timing. Tough!! I am relieved to share that his proper timing has past. After a ten hour mediation day, endless prayers later, the ninth hour we were packing up to go home with no compromise. I dismissed myself, cried out to the Miracle Worker, and told HIM I am not giving up. It can't end here. I have the Faith! Words spilled out and over into the throne room of grace. I collected myself, walked back into the mediation room with God-confidence, and within the hour all parties walked away with a signed compromise we can all live with! I got into the car with my husband to head home, tired and numb. I said I have only one word....HOSANNA. That's it. Nomas. The next day a dear friend told me HOSANNA in Greek means GOD SAVE US!! That HE did. Giving HIM the Glory forevermore!
