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!”
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.
