Many a few have stood in my shoes, said the wife of the down and out! I am the one and almost only who’s had the greatest pleasure of caring for the man of my dreams.I follow, only close to thirteen years, after his lovely mother, Joyce! Before you go and get all weirded out, he was the man of her dreams in a totally mother- son way!
Minus the ringing of the bell, I have gained another person to be totally dependent upon me. An overwhelming thought when you stop to ponder on what that really means. Without you and what you have to offer then the day to day reality of functioning would be near the impossible.
I have been reminded these past few weeks that in the grand scheme of things there is only ONE who can meet our needs. Christ alone is the wellspring of life. He makes the IMPOSSIBLE-POSSIBLE! To the work of Christ, I am a hand at times and a foot at others. It is my total dependence upon Him that:
1. Guides me
2. Satisfies me
3. Strengthens me
4. Equips me
Isaiah 58:11, ” The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail”.
When life hands you hurt bring it to the one who can heal, when it hands you uncertainty allow His peace to pass ALL your understanding, when the day is covered with darkness allow His light to shine into your soul and when it “seems” all hope is lost allow your circumstance to be gripped in the hands of the HOPE giver.
