TURNING SOUR GRAPES INTO SWEET WINE

Seagrapes by Claire Wally

It was a balmy day to celebrate Mabel’s birthday as the family gathered around for a picnic.  Naturally, we all hugged each other since we hadn’t seen the family for over a year.  The menfolk hovered the grills to cook and the women chatted fearlessly, everyone was happy to be free together.  There was a lady there whom I had not seen before thanking God for the miracles he had bestowed on her recently.  Gladly, that brought me into the conversation to bolster her testimony, though she had some regrets that were still weighing her down…then as a jolt the Holy Spirit descended upon us…and these words came forth:

“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loose in heaven.”  –Matthew 18

We prayed this promise over her and she was released of all those burdens.  That was a holy moment that God is.

Honesty, humor and laughter is medicine to the bone.  Every day we can participate with the Spirit to become God’s testimony, because He has our best interest at heart. This begs the question, have you talked about what God has done for you in life lately?
