Yesterday we received an email from the infant school to say that all of N's class have to isolate because someone they have been in contact with has caught Covid. This is 14 days isolation, which leads us up to the last day of term before the Christmas holidays. They'll be staying at home for that day too. So no more school for N before Christmas. He's happy today but it might be an interesting couple of weeks.
I am starting again blogging here. More journalling really. This is a mind dump.
I phoned MR for quite a long chat this morning, while walking the streets. She was very useful. I told her about my recent conversation with PH and she made the observation that behind it all is KH. She is pulling the strings. He is placating her.
I feel this has all come about because I've been praying a lot in tongues recently. God gave me a picture as soon as I started praying this last Monday, of a piece of paper folded up concertina style, and he showed me that as I pray in tongues, the paper is unfolded and laid flat - there were lots of things, dirt, dust, hidden things, in between the folds, and as I pray, the paper is unfolded and all these things are revealed for what they are.
It has been a hard week, last week, and kind of rolling into this week although I'm not praying in tongues as much because of the spiritual kick back that was caused. But I don't believe any of this is coincidental.
Another surprising thing has been RG's turn-around in his opinion the church should carrying on giving to the RS mission (of which HR is the administrator). That was simply not going to happen apart from prayer. I prayed that God would soften his heart, and a whole load of other things that I don't know, because I was praying in tongues.
This is a sermon test.
Welcome to the sermon test.
I'm writing Christmas day's talk on Christmas eve.
Focus. Refuse to be distracted.
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
