283.8. Step-ups: 50.
No guitar practice today; I need the time to write down a series of dreams I had.
I am struggling with my usefulness to the Kingdom of GOD. There are no healings, and no signs and wonders following me to confirm anything. I feel as though I am just a clown who makes people laugh and encourages them once in a while; a clown and a cheerleader. I want to excel at work and at the same time I don’t want to be there. I am so conflicted at times.
Read Luke 2:1-7.
Joseph and Miriam were not even married yet when they went to be registered for the census. The Holy Scripture says they were espoused; engaged to be married. What a hard start for them. What must this have been like? Not yet married, traveling to Bethlehem for a census, having a baby, and giving birth in the animals’ area, then wrapping your newborn baby in strips of loose cloth you carry for cleaning yourself up or bandaging an injury during your travels. We have it so easy today in this country.
