He answers the cries of our heart. Last week I had an issue in a group setting. I was having a very tough morning and couldn’t figure out what was wrong. I couldn’t put a name to the feeling, I just knew that it was not right to feel that way. In the midst of this I asked the Lord to tell me what it was. He revealed the feeling to me, “jealousy”. Oh my, Lord please take it away was my cry. I went home and was still feeling angst over the feeling being there in the first place. My dear friend who was in the group with me, called a couple of hours later and asked me what was wrong, if I was okay? So, I confessed my feelings to her…and that was hard! I knew I had to follow the Lord’s leading and be totally up front with her because He had revealed it to me when I asked. She and I talked it through, and all this week I have been praying for freedom from that bondage. It wasn’t the kind of jealousy where I didn’t want them to do something, or I didn’t want to take their place. I wanted to join them, to be a part. In years past I have had a very active part. This year the Lord has asked me to step aside for a season, to just let them love me. So the Lord can show me, so they can show me, they love me for me…not what I do.

So…we gathered again. In that meeting there was only joy, not one whit of jealousy! Thank you Jesus!!! A feeling of belonging, loving and being loved. Again, thank you Jesus!! There is nothing to big for my God!
