As promised, I am back to share something positive and hopeful. Clearly yesterday was a rough day for me. I'm thinking I might be low on Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, so I'm going to work on that. A friend shared that possibility (being low on Vitamin D) with me on facebook and it got me thinking about how blessed I am to have the people in my life that God has blessed me with. This lead to my realization of how fully blessed I am simply because God is walking this journey with me.
Last night my husband played a song for me. It was one that I had already heard and it speaks right to the heart of where I am at right now, but it was also affirming that he recognized on his own where I was at and wanted to share that song with me. The song is "Need You Now (How Many Times)" by Plumb and the chorus goes like this:
How many times have you heard me cry out
"God please take this"?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh I need you
God, I need you now.
Today in my daily devotional Beth Moore had this to say: "If Your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction (Psalm 119:92). Teach me your Word during this season of my life like I have never known it before, and make this verse my testimony when I emerge from this place." My desire should be to know God more through the struggles of this time, until the time "when I emerge from this place." He is my strength, my hope, my rock, and my Truth. He alone can heal my body, my mind, and my spirit. Doctors and chiropractors can only do so much- ultimately healing comes from the One who created me.
Thank you, Lord, for speaking to me through your living Word and through the people that you have placed in my life. To you, oh Lord, I life up my soul; in you I trust, oh God (Psalm 25:1). Amen.
