I just re-read my last post (ok, it’s been a month now!). . .
In my silence once again,
my husband had back surgery;
husband and daughter had h1n1 (no serious complications but really sick);
daughter injured her neck;
during these preceding two items, I needed to help take care of the baby (Matthew is now 2 months old), while also take care of a post-operative husband;
AT THE SAME TIME I am battling a very annoying CFS flare, which has my sleep interrupted, my throat sore, lymph nodes swollen, and every joint either on fire or aching. That’s not to mention the fatigue and emotional meltdowns. . .
So, now what? I MUST speak truth to my soul. I MUST use the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God to fight, no matter how tired I am and no matter how continuous the onslaught.
“Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge. I said to the Lord, ‘You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.’ . .Lord, You have assigned me my portion and my cup; You have made my lot secure. . .I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” Psalm 16:1,2,5-8 NIV
I truly have nothing good apart from God. He knows every detail of my life, and every circumstance; nothing escapes His notice. He cares for me; He is good to me! He is before me; behind me; beside me; under me; and over me. He is here in my today, and there in my tomorrow. What awesome grace!
Have a blessed Thanksgiving. He is worth of all praise.
