Many of you may be unaware that the last six weeks were messy here on my website. My computer was hacked, my website was compromised, thousands of comments got added behind the scenes. My husband and I have spent many hours this week trying to get rid of all the lengthy entries in various languages. The ones about baby goats for sale made us chuckle.

I am in the middle of writing my first autobiographical book: Where is God in Autoimmune Disease? This book is written to be a help to any and all sufferers of autoimmune diseases of all types, for I am one of you. I’ve been sick with my autoimmune disease for about thirty-five years. My disease first manifested itself in 1988 with esophageal spasms, a common beginning side effect.

But it turned toward a more ferocious disease about thirteen years ago, and it has impacted my life in many ways. So, unable to get onto this website during these few weeks, I worked ahead on this manuscript.

So, now that all of you know what happened while I was “gone.” I’ll be back to writing about my usual faith-based content. For now, I want to urge you to continue to press on and to rely on the Lord when you hit a wall like I did with this activity here on my site.

Keep pressing on to do what the Lord has given you to do. He will re-open the doors if they get momentarily shut. If they don’t re-open, He has an even better plan for you.

Until next week, let’s meditate on these realities:

Seven acts of Jesus that prove His Deity:

  1. Turning water into wine (John 2:1-2)
  2. Healing the Nobleman’s Son (John 4:46-54)
  3. Healing the Man at the Pool (John 5:1-11)
  4. Feeding the 5,000 (John 6:1-15)
  5. Walking on Water (John 6:1-15)
  6. Healing a man born blind (John 9:1-12)
  7. Resurrecting Lazarus (John 11)

Seven Statements of Jesus that prove His Deity:

“Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life; whoever comes to Me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst” (John 6:35 ESV).

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life’ (John 8:12 ESV).

“So Jesus again said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep’ (John 10:7 ESV).

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep’ (John 10:11 ESV). “I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me,” (John 10:14 ESV).

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die'” (John 11:25 ESV).

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me,'” (John 14:6 ESV).

“I am the true vine and my Father is the vinedresser” (John 15:1 ESV).
