The Christian inspiration book section...

I was at the bookstore tonight and I was browsing to buy a bargain. I did not want to spend a lot of money. I wasn't in the mood. But I did want to buy a token of something. I browsed through all the different bibles. I have a lot of bibles of all kinds. I suddenly realized that the spirit was not with me. I was tense and perhaps upset in heart for no reason. I continued to search. I stopped to pray for a moment and seek God and asked him what would help me most in the end? I wanted to be refreshed. I wanted to renew my spark. My candle was lighting dim and there was darkness. I prayed to God for some trinket to buy to separate me from my wormhole thoughts of thinking about the same thing. Just before I decided to call it a night because it was closing time. I found a little book that was pocket size. Attractive and modest in appearance and the price was in range of what I wanted to spend. Its' a little devotional book for the whole year for each day. I turned to this days' devotion and it was Romans 8:17-18 where it says, "17and if children, then heirs-heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. Future Glory.18For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us." I didn't think I need anyone to remind me of something. I looked at great spanse for inspirtational books and I realized how little my life was compared to these "giants" of inspiration. Perhaps I though I was becoming a little or lots vain. I was beginning to focus on myself and not on what God was doing through me and mostly for me. I needed to be comforted more than anybody else. Then I realized that I did not understand the issue. I bought a diet coke at the cafe and just refected on God and how I needed him. I guess it was my best moment. I suppose the entry in the devotional was a true quote. We don't know how much we have to suffer in these life with all its tense and lonely moment. And only to be reavealed in our heart that God is for real and is there for us. And even if we have all the books in the world we still need that little quiet moment with God to renew our hope. Romans 8:19- says, "19For the creation waits with eager longing for(AH) the revealing of the sons of God. 20For the creation(AI) was subjected to futility, not willingly, but(AJ) because of him who subjected it, in hope 21that(AK) the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22For we know that(AL) the whole creation(AM) has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have(AN) the firstfruits of the Spirit,(AO) groan inwardly as(AP) we wait eagerly for adoption as sons,(AQ) the redemption of our bodies. 24For(AR) in this hope we were saved. Now(AS) hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25But if we hope for what we do not see, we(AT) wait for it with patience. 26Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For(AU) we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but(AV) the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 27And(AW) he who searches hearts knows what is(AX) the mind of the Spirit, because[f] the Spirit(AY) intercedes for the saints(AZ) according to the will of God. 28And we know that for those who love God all things work together(BA) for good,[g] for(BB) those who are called according to his purpose. 29For those whom he(BC) foreknew he also(BD) predestined(BE) to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be(BF) the firstborn among many brothers. 30And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also(BG) justified, and those whom he justified he also(BH) glorified..." Yes indeed God can renew the hope we have in him, just like the bible says. May your day be bright. Amen. thbg
