Lynnette's Book Chapter 14 & Week 11 The Secret

Please click the above icon to learn more about Read With Us and how it works. This book reading is for In Faithfulness, He Afflicted Me by Lynnette Kraft.

Lynnette starts off the chapter by sharing with us how Anna got saved. I enjoy hearing stories of the day a person got saved so I liked reading this part. After Anna accepted Jesus as her Savior she got baptized by her father, Kyle. This reminded me of my own times of becoming saved and being baptized. I first asked Jesus to come into my heart when I was 12 years old. It was at a church summer camp and I remember how moving the experience was. I wasn't baptized until I was in college. I got baptized in my parents' swimming pool. How fitting that it was the very pool I spent so many summers in. The water was a little cold though because it was closer to fall. What were your own experience of being saved/baptized like?

Lynnette began to notice Anna retaining fluid and not being her usual self. They were able to get the fluid down but she wasn't completely back to normal. She would tire easily and didn't do the things she did before, like play outside.

Anna and her family were able to go to Disney World thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I think this is a great organization that does so many good things for kids and I'm glad they were all able to go and spend that time together as a family doing fun things. I'm sure it was odd for Anna, who wasn't used to being put in the spotlight.

I can certainly understand Lynnette's mind jumping back in forth in thinking Anna getting worse or better. I think that this comes from having suffered losses already and not wanting it to happen again. I don't know how many times I think the worst-case scenario about things, especially with Kyndra. I don't intentionally try to think about those things. My mind just goes there. Have you had times when you jumped between the worst and best of things?

To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.

I think it is great to think well of yourself but you shouldn't boast it to the world. You shouldn't think so highly of yourself that you come across as arrogant. That just makes people not want to be around you. I think it is a great idea to show it through good deeds rather than loud words. If I am feeling good about myself I should try to help someone else feel better.

I to like hearing stories of people being saved. Ridge has been talking about it the past few months, asking lots of questions. It makes you smile :). I also think just as being human we always fear the worst at times even though we want the best. I know with my past pregnancy I fear losing even though we wanted the new life. Great post & doing good deeds is always a good thing. :)

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
