Sabbath Moments - Jesus' eyes
Sabbath Moments are those times when we "let go and let God" and live in the present moment. Perhaps that is why it is called "the present", it is God's gift to us. None of us really know if we will have tomorrow, only God knows this. But we do have "now". I guess this is why I like the Sabbath Moments Meme so much...it reminds me to appreciate the gift of today. Some day we will live in heaven, "the eternal NOW", where there is no time. Colleen at Thoughts on Grace hosts this weekly meme.
I had plenty of Sabbath Moments this week - my healing being one of them. What struck me most about being healed was not so much the absence of pain but the powerful presence of the Holy Spirit during this process. Like fire whizzing through your body at an accelerated rate. The Holy Spirit is always with us and I feel His Presence but this was different. Kind of like when the Holy Spirit gives me a "word". The "heat" was strong. I could feel it as He worked on different areas of my body, even the palms of my hands were hot. My brother noticed this at the healing service and mentioned it.
Another moment that struck me was when Father DiOrio caught my gaze. Persona Christi to the max! I could SEE Jesus in his eyes. Love poured out! It was like Jesus was coming at me. No wonder I couldn't tear my eyes away. Who could?
God is good.
