Purposed To Give! by Elaine Davenport February 17-25, 2010

Ephesians 2:10 (Amplified Bible)

10For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), [a]recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].

I went to the doctor and oh the look  on his face,

You don’t have long to live my dear and that can’t be erased.

I went to my family and shared with them the news,

“However you want it done” they said…that gave me the blues.

I went to some people I knew for some quick sympathy; but they looked at me puzzled and thought:  “I’m glad it’s not me!

I needed to find a church; it had been long on my mind,

I didn’t know where to go; but God sent someone so kind!

Disgusted with it all, I went to the bank and  God had strategically sent a longtime friend!

We chatted and I thought I did a great job keeping my sadness in check,

But when we were through talking she took but a moment to  react,

Her words were anointed and power came out,

Yes, she spoke as an oracle of God and my ears stood at attention,

She talked about a church I should visit that she had forgotten to mention,

The devil was fighting me; he knew what was at stake,

so as my heart softened he started getting irate!

I was looking at her smiling and fighting this one strong thought,

He wanted me to say “No” ; I had been doing that a lot!

Yes…I’ll go…it was clearly time  for a change,

God was calling me and I was in range…

I went to the service where my friend said she’d meet me,

she wasn’t there so I wanted to leave.  I had to go back and ask myself why

was I there, the praise music went up and I started to stare.

It was lovely and angelic all around that place and I was overtaken  by joy and of course…His grace.

The minister spoke and oh how he Blessed me.  He let out a big smile and

looked at the ceiling…he looked forward and said:

“Let’s talk about healing!”

In the first ten minutes I wanted to shout as he marched through the word and said:

“God’s got a way out!”

In Conclusion

Alone and facing death; I only had You to trust.

It was a test which caused me to call Satan’s bluff;  a test to make me say enough is enough!

To me You gave a certain sort of peace, which allowed me to take

that medical report in and still feel at ease,

I began to get  medicine out of Your Holy Book, I didn’t have to buy it;

I just had to  look,

I absorbed it- it flowed all through my body when the word got through workin;

the report looked pretty shoddy!

People going to and fro, every where I went; they had no idea of the death knoll I faced,

or that  right about then, my time was almost spent,

One day tears flowed from my eyes as I wondered of Your plan,

the Savior came and held me and grabbed me by the hand,

That day was so special; my healing burst forth strong; my family saw me

shouting and wondered just what was going on…

I was in the kitchen shouting & Thanking God the Most…there was me singing in the kitchen

and all the heavenly host!

I made a vow to God that day You can count on me to serve,  I love you my Dear Father

just show me the way,

Yes, I will tell you; I wanted to live; but Yes, I will tell you  I wanted to give,

I had so much to give and I had wasted so much time, God is His mercy said:

I’ll show you that you’re mine!”

I am purposed to give…all that I can…my words, my thoughts, meeting needs that fit into His plan.

I just want you to know that God is so real…and that is why I make this appeal.

  1. To God be the glory! Yes…I too was purposed to give and I will do my part well by the help of His Spirit. Do you know, I too had such an experience about 12 years ago but unlike you, I never shared it with a single soul instead I battled it out with the Lord on my own. But the results were the same. I am healed and living for His Glory!

    Blessings to you as always!


  2. Hi Gladwell! How are you doing my dear friend? I’m just sitting here writing and watching some messages. I’m having a great day in the Lord!
    Thanks so much for sharing and writing. I’m very happy that you are healed and I look forward to hearing your testimony! So many people will be Blessed by it! Look how far God has brought you…He strengthened you to such a mighty position for you truly are an overcomer! Love E
