Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

“SELF” Spelled Backwards

An email from Sister Tracey

Hey John,

I went to bed Wednesday night having some wonderful thoughts, like God was preaching. I wish I could remember what all I was saying in my mind. I went to sleep with some wonderful “preaching” thoughts. Anyway, one I remember was, “This old flesh just wants to kill you. It’s just selfish, self-willed and a pure embarrassment. All you need is to spell “SELF” backwards and then add an “h”, and what do you get??? F-L-E-S-H!! Self and flesh. It’s just pathetic!”

I remembered thinking that I didn’t know where all that was coming from, but I sure was enjoying the feelings. There was more that I just can’t remember, but that’s what stuck out when I woke up yesterday. I have never had that to happen the way it did Wednesday night, with such strong feelings.

I can’t help but feel like Bro. Billy, that God isn’t going to keep putting up with some things and when he answered a prayer for me the other week, it was a serious and relieved feeling, but scary. A “fear of God” scary. It is clean and right. It relieves me that He sees us and those around us. He knows how to fix and clean something up without us having to do a thing but live for Him and stay out of the way. I pray He keeps me and keeps watching me.

Love,

Tracey
