This Week's WORD

After he had said this, he went on to tell them, "Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up."

John 11:11
On Wednesday I had some heavy things on my mind when I sat down to do my daily Bible reading. As I checked my reading schedule and discovered that I was in John 11 that day, I wondered what verse 11 might have to say. (For those of you who don't know, God and I have a 'thing' with 1111.)
And, sure enough, as I read verse 11, it was as if God was saying to me, See, Karen. I already know what's going on in your life. And I know what I'm going to do about it.

Thank You, God!

May the peace of knowing God's sovereignty carry you through this weekend.
I'll see you back here Monday!

And if you haven't sent a question to Amanda yet, I hope you will!

Jessica Nelson said...

Hey Karen,
I'm always surprised by how God answers me, but I shouldn't be surprised, right? LOL I'm so glad He spoke to you.
I think I told you we have a thing with 1111 over here too, right? Whenever I see it on the clock I pray for a certain person.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Karen Hossink said...

Jessica - I say the same thing. I shouldn't be surprised!
God is faithful and we should just expect it.
And I think I do remember your 1111 thing. *grin*

O Mom said...

He says that to me often too..A sweet reminder that Yes He does already know exactly what is going on in my life. It makes me just sigh with relief when He talks to me that way.

Karen Hossink said...

O Mom - "Often" Yep. That's right. Not only is He gracious, but He's patient. And I love that!!!
