God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing. (‭‭Eph ‭2:7)

I was reminded of this yesterday as I sat in A&E trying to manage the pain in my chest and not wanting to believe that I was having another heart attack.

It was like a B-Movie. There were booths everywhere, full of blank-faced hurting people waiting silently, all looking as frightened and forlorn as I probably was. I found it quite surreal to watch Doctors, Nurses and Orderlies all zooming between us, a strange rhythmic dance set to the beep beep sounds of a myriad of monitors. No one able to rest for a moment, no one finding the time to stop and offer an encouraging smile to those they were passing by, those poor unfortunates who were in their booths – leaking hope …

Jesus was there though. An old man, in seeming great pain was crying and convulsing constantly in pain, his frail legs vibrating at an incredible rate on the bed frame. I prayed for him, he convulsed. I prayed again, he convulsed. I prayed again, but his constant crying and whining were getting to me. I tried again, but his expression of pain was getting to me and I could feel my heart hardening. I began to think stupid thoughts, “Is this worth it, am I somehow making this worse for him…?

“Lord, I can’t do this, please help him,” I finally called out in my heart – not daring to believe. I finally looked up, he was now sat up in bed. I offered a wan smile, he smiled back, all his thrashing about had stopped … Hallelujah! ❤️

If we boast that we have no sin, we’re only fooling ourselves and are strangers to the truth. But if we freely admit our sins when his light uncovers them, he will be faithful to forgive us every time
