Wow… can you believe that September is already here and here we go NQC CRAZY…
Where has the time gone? This year has just flown by! I hope y’all are doing well and getting ready for the next few months…. I think they are going to fly by as well.
Life is such a gift that we take for granted so much of the time. And when death or sickness comes knocking on our door in our family or dear friends, it kind of wakes us up and puts life back into perspective, it does for me anyways.
To say Goodbye is a hard thing to do for most of us. I have not gotten a good handle on this part of life yet, even though, I know without a shadow of a doubt that I will see my loved ones again, if they are living for God, or they are just a baby not of the age of accountability. For some reason, this is still a hard thing for me. I know we, who are in the ministry aren’t supposed to have these problems, right? (I’m not sure where that is written?), but you know we are all human and all created by God, yet we are so different in so many ways. We can all be glad about that, I’m sure most of you are too …. Because It would be just a little crazy if you were all like me, ha! However, we’d be happy…. LOL, Just kidding. Well back to my thoughts…
God has promised us Peace in the midst of our storms and God does not renege on his promises. Isaiah 26:3 God’s perfect peace; PS: 30:1 says I will extol thee O Lord for thou has lifted me up….. PS 31: 1 In thee O Lord do I put my trust;
PS 18:2…. God is our Deliverer and our Buckler…. He will keep us in His care we just have to trust him…. I am leaning on God’s strength so much these days. I know that He will bring me and my family through.
Each year that passes I think will be a little easier… but we’re not there yet. I have come to the conclusion, that it’s okay to not be okay for a season, as long as we keep walking with the Farther and holding to His hand and walking in His footsteps. One day we’ll wake up and know that we are okay again and that God has never left us alone. He has carried us (like the song I wrote a few years ago) little did I know that he would literally need to carry me once again through the heartache of life that was coming. I am so thankful that our hope is not in this world but in eternal life with Jesus.
I hope you are blessed mightily this month and that you will trust in the Lord and let Jesus be your strength as He is mine.
Be blessed in all that you do so that you will be a blessing to others, and that God’s love will shine through you.
Love You All… Keep looking unto the author and finisher of our faith!
