Was able to get out of the house this evening for something other than a medical appointment or errand for the second time in a week. Thank you Lord!
My body hurts and my mind fears going to bed
For the unknown menace of this illness awaits me there,
today, tonight, tomorrow.
Yet it will not last forever, He promises.
He is with me now, here, and to the end of my days.
He knows pain in all it’s many colors and stripes.
He weeps for me, this I know.
And in the midst of it all, sweet fellowship arrived this day:
Prayer and encouragement, compliments for Your work in my frame.
I lift them up to you, my King. You reign and order this journey for my good.
I trust you, Lord.
I am humbled by your grace.
You heard my prayer for a little light in my darkness.
A little light ain’t You after all.
For you filled the earth before the sun and moon shown like candles on a hill.
Your light is holiness, Your light is truth;
Your light will come again when we reign with you for eternity.
Yes! A time without tears, without tics, suffering, unknowns.
Help me wait on You, Jesus.
Hold me close, in the shadow of those mighty wings.
And if it is your will, deliver me this night.
I lay this burden at the foot of Your cross.
I lay this prayer on Your throne of grace.
“Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord, my soul to keep
And if I die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take,” prayed Little Julie long ago.
My, how things have changed.
Thank you. :J
