Deuteronomy 9:13-21; Psalms 119:49-72; Hebrews 3:12-19; John 2:23-3:15

About fifteen years ago, I was breaking several of God’s commandments. I had not wanted to do so, but I continued for three more years. After I stopped, I began to have trouble walking. It was at that time that God called me back to my Episcopal heritage, and I joined Saint Matthew’s and became very active. God allowed me to become totally and permanently disabled with severe neurological deficit. I was forced to take disability retirement. Then I found out I was also diabetic and was put on insulin. I found myself becoming totally dependent on God and was becoming more aware of God and what he wanted from me. I began reading the Bible and learning. I confessed my sins and received forgiveness. I now had a close, totally open relationship with God and a deeper understanding of him. God loves each of us and wants us to love one another and listen to him. “Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10.)
