Miracles don’t happen every day, but my boy was proving that to be wrong.  He had taken a small amount of food and turned it into enough to feed five thousand – and that didn’t even include the women and children.  There were even leftovers.  It reminded me of the stories of my youth and how God always provided for our people as they roamed the desert after being enslaved in Egypt.

He walked on top of the sea which he earlier had calmed with his own hand.  He healed many from many maladies – physical and spiritual – even calling out demons that possessed those who had lost track of God.

As he ministered to the crowds, he received word that his dear friend, Lazarus was ill.  He was summoned by Lazarus’ two sisters, Mary and Martha to Bethany, but didn’t go right away.  I know he had a special bond with this family, but he waited until the body had been in the grave for four days.  I didn’t understand at first, but I was sure he had a reason.

When he arrived at Bethany, he wept at the news that his friend was already in the grave.  His emotion was a natural human response to death, but his actions showed his divine power over it.  On that day, he called out to his friend to come forth and Lazarus did.  He was alive!

Word spread like wild fire and reached the spiritual leaders.  It was just the ammunition they needed to use against my boy.  They even plotted to kill Lazarus, who had now become an eye witness to the power behind this astounding miracle.

Those same leaders began to hatch a plan to actively pursue my son and put an end to his ministry and his life.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
