My Heart is Full

Today has been an amazing day and I wish you were all with me to share in the feelings. This afternoon I am teaching a series of classes on the "Messages in the Miracles of Jesus." Therefore, I spent yesterday and this morning preparing--reading the miracles of the New Testament, pondering on them, imagining them, learning from them,and feeling them and I am full to the brim.

I don't have much time, but let me share just one little thing that has impressed me. Of the 45 miracles that are recorded in the New Testament 19 are requested. Someone asks the Savior to help them. In two, both concerning the casting out of unclean spirits, the spirits ask him not to do anything. But in more than half of the miracles (24) Jesus seeks the person out and heals them without their even asking. As a matter of fact some of them don't even know who He is.

That is a powerful testimony to me that Jesus loves us all and wants to help us with whatever battles we are fighting. Jesus is the Christ. He cares about us. He lives.
