The Verse

I have a meeting coming up just short of a couple weeks. I've been praying about it a lot today, and will continue to pray up until the very moment I meet. Actually, through out this meeting, I will pray, so will many of my friends. It's a big deal.
As I pray, there is a particular verse that continues to come to mind: 2 Corinthians 7:11 "Distress that drives us to God does that. It turns us around. It gets us back in the way of salvation. We never regret that kind of pain. But those who let distress drive them away from God are full of regrets, end up on a deathbed of regrets." verse 12; "isn't it wonderful all the ways in which this distress has guided you closer to God? You're more alive more concerned, more sensitive, more reverent, more human, more passionate, more responsible. Looked at from every angle, you've come out of this with purity of heart."
Ah, from every angle, through my trial, I have come out of it with purity of heart! I have seen the face of God in this trial, and He has kissed my cheek! Not that it's over, I don't think it is, but I am more alive, more sensitive, more concerned, more reverent, more human, more passionate, and more responsible! God has grown my heart and my soul, and I feel His presence even more now than I did 6 months ago.
I know what He is calling me to do, there is no room for doubt in that. Over and over again, He has raised Himself up and proved to me His passionate love, his desire to have me next to Him, my completeness IN Him.
I am praying for boldness in His Spirit, for His truth, and for discernment as I go into this upcoming meeting on the 22nd. Pray for me, friends.
Say That Again, dear Jesus. No regrets from this pain. My heart is pure in Jesus!
