About Me

My name is Meredith, and I am the mother of two awesome boys; the wife of a fantastic husband; the band director for 100 students in grades 5 - 12 in a small community in Maine; and a follower of Christ. This blog is a place for me to reflect on what the Lord is teaching me.

Blogging Through the Gospels: Mark 1

A tough day.   Blogging through the Gospels with Amy, from Mom's Toolbox.

Reading:  Mark 1

Scripture: Mark 1 :40-42

40 A man with leprosy came and knelt in front of Jesus, begging to be healed. “If you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean,” he said.
41 Moved with compassion,  Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” 42 Instantly the leprosy disappeared, and the man was healed.     NLT


Jesus was willing.  He was moved with compassion.  The instant that Jesus touched the man, his skin cleared up completely, leaving perfectly new skin behind.

The man with leprosy, shunned by all since obtaining the disease, did not let that stop him from approaching Jesus.


Lord, I need that boldness.  I need to push through the crowds (distractions) to get to you.
I know that you can heal me.  I know that you can sustain me.

I need to believe that you are willing.

Today, of all days, Lord, I need to feel your presence.  I need your love to sustain me.  In the midst of this trial,  I need to believe that you will help me sort through the mess in front of me.


I am so hurt by the things that happened yesterday.
Please, help me to put the emotions aside, to rest in how YOU see me, and give me the strength to continue with what needs to be done for my students.

Please,  I am begging, Lord.  Be willing to heal my broken heart.

The same 2 verses hit me but from an entirely different angle! Isn't that cool? That God uses His Word to teach each of us exactly where we are and what we need!
