Looking Upward

"...The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made. The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up those who are bowed down. Psalm 146:13& 14

"...we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character, and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has pourd out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given to us." Romans 5:3-5

It is hard for me to find the words to describe how I am feeling. For the most part I feel amazingly peaceful about this whole situation. I know that God is in control. He knows the pain I am in. He knows that I would love to be up taking care of my family. He knows that at times I feel like a burden to my family members. He also knows that I am looking to Him. I am waiting on Him. I am learning to let go and let Him shape my character through this trial.
I have had my share of tears. Some due to a feeling of helplessness, but most from the pain. The Lord knows my heart and He is really working on me emotionally and spiritually. He is strengthening me, refining me.

I have had a good deal of uncertainty, but the Lord knows this, too. He is helping me to let go and trust in Him. He is upholding me and I am leaning gratefully on Him as I wait for him to show me the way.

'So do not fear for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you in my righteous right hand. For I am the Lord, your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Do not be afraid,...for I myself will yelp you,' declares the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. Isaiah 41:10, 13 & 14

Thankfully I have the strength, love, mercy and goodness of the Lord to help me through this without Him I would be lost.


  1. Oh honey, I truly hope you feel better soon. Right now it is a trial for us to endure but when the sun peeks through the cloud, we are able to transform the trial into a testimony. I assure you, there is a lesson to be learned here. Keep your eyes on the Lord and you are doing a wise thing by reading scriptures, it is medicine for the soul!

  2. I sure hope this will pass soon. I'm very glad you cast your cares on Him. Keep us posted. ((HUGS))

  4. I'm SO sorry to hear that you are in so much pain. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayer.

    Just remember, you have taken care of them, and they will joyfully take care of "Mama"!

  5. Thanks for sharing what you are going through. I love reading these verses and pray for your comfort and healing-but meanwhile, rest and draw near to Him, for He (so) cares for you:)
