Remaining In Him
Every time I lay down at night it takes awhile for my body and nerves to settle. It feels like every nerve in my body is plugged into an electric socket. I can feel constant vibrations running through my legs and feet. It’s often very difficult to distinguish between my actual nerves versus my spinal stimulator.
All I know is I’ve just got to let my nerves settle before I can rest. That’s so much easier said than done. For me that involves processing and praying over everything. This typically leads to much greater peace and much needed rest.
I’m excited tomorrow to share what God has been speaking to my heart. We’re going to look at how to deal with the distress in our lives. God never gives me a message for others that’s he’s not first asking me to put into practice myself. Pray this Sunday I can rest in God’s arms and just let Him speak freely through me. I’m reminded tonight of what’s been my life verse for the past 30 years of ministry.
Jesus said, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)
