Resting in God's Grace
Yes, folks . . . I'm still alive. And so is my mother, praise God.
It's been a pretty rough year, and things intensified beginning in February when Mom began developing heart trouble. Then skin cancer. And surgeries involving both. Tough, but God is faithful, as always, walking right through it with us.
Today, both Mom and I are feeling ill with a flu bug or something. In the midst of feeling miserable, Psalm 23 came to my mind, so I thought I'd post it today.
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
That's a wonderful promise for those who trust in Him. And I need Him today.
