Today is the 10th anniversary of my father’s death. I have been sad today ~ I miss him.
I am so thankful for the gift of salvation that Jesus Christ has given me. Because of it, I have the hope of reaching heaven one day. And the hope of a beautiful reunion with the ones I love.
I am continually amazed at how God’s Word is proved to be true in my life and the lives of people around me. This week I’ve been thinking a lot about this verse, and I’ve seen God answer prayers in surprising ways – “immeasurably more” than what I could have envisioned.
14For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 20Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
I’m including a video here – this song was played at my grandmother’s funeral this week and at my dad’s funeral 10 years ago. It means a lot to me. I hope you enjoy it.
