I know, I know, we all complain our time is so precious!
We are so busy, busy, busy!
Of course, our finances consume us!
We work to live and live to work!
What about your thoughts?
What consumes your thoughts?
Your past? Your present? Your future?
And we don't even want to talk about what we consume!
Let's take a look at a precious piece of scripture describing God's love for each one of us!
"Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken,
let us be thankful,
and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe,
for our “God is a consuming fire.”
Did you get to sit by a firepit or a bonfire this Memorial Day weekend?
Have you ever watched a fire consume vast amounts of wood or fuel?
God is a consuming fire!
He strongly and urgently desires to consume all of you with His all-consuming love!
As we pray this Trey Tuesday, let's re-read that verse with Trey in our thoughts and minds and hearts!
"Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken"
May Jay and Rachel hold fast to the promises of God, knowing full well that God's Kingdom,
God's Way, God's Plans, even through the thickest storms and darkest nights, cannot be shaken!
"Let us be thankful"
Let us all remember to be thankful that God's consuming love encompasses Trey
every day! Let's also be thankful for the AMAZING success that Trey's treatment has produced!
We are thankful for Joe and Bella being so resilient in schedule changes and altered routines!
And let's be thankful for the dynamic team of doctors and nurses and TEAM MITLO ONE surrounding
Trey in his journey! And we are so thankful for the teenager at Children's Hospital, Ryan, who became Trey's
friend as they both fight the battle of their cancers.
"And so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe"
God, we worship You, we stand in awe of You and all that You know and all that You can do!
So, medicine and doctors aside, even carrot juice and homeopathy aside,
we trust that healing Trey is something that You alone can do!
We also trust you can spare Trey from mouth and throat sores!
We believe it!
We know it!
But overall, we trust You!
In closing, let's pray some of the amazing verses that follow God's consuming love!
"Keep on loving each other as brothers. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
Be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”
So we say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid."
