Now More than Ever

Flowers my husband received.....
Monday morning, Myra commented on my post: I am glad to read that the two of you are on the mend. Lots of love your way. I always wonder how people who don't know the Lord cope with things like this. You are always noticing blessings and relying on Scripture - what joy.

Yes, Myra...The "blessings"--the connections between what's going on in my life and what I read and remember from Scripture are my stabilizers.  My hope.  My help.  I rely on the Author.  The God of my salvation.

That is NOT to say that I am 100% in this practice.  But the weaker I am, the more I recognize my need.  His strength really IS made perfect in my weakness!  What Paul wrote to Timothy is true of me:

"You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, 
and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus."  ~2 Timothy 3:15

I thank God for my heritage, and I continue to read, think on, and rely on holy Scriptures for wisdom for daily living.  (Who is it that said, "Aging is not for sissies"?)  Now, more than ever, I trust Christ Jesus!


  1. God is our strength when we are at our weakest. When we are weakened, we call on Him more and trust Him more to work all things out.

    Love and hugs to you and your hubby ~ FlowerLady

  2. He wields all things to bring us to focus our attention on Him!

    Thankful for your testimony of His faithfulness!


  3. Amen and Amen, I don't know how people make it thru tough times without the promises of God and experiencing His presence..........what a wonderful gift we have in Jesus.......

    So glad to hear the surgery is over........gotta go back and read the post before this, cause somehow I missed it..........hope you and hubby are doing way better.............
    I tell you I experienced the Lord's grace in ways I never could have if my hubby hadn't gone thru
    the same thing yours did.........the lord just never ceases to amaze................

    Blessings for a total and speedy recovery.

  5. Amen! I haven't walked through illness, but I do know that life curve balls show us what we are made of and what we say we believe. May the strength of the Lord continue to lift you up as wings on eagles.
    Healing and blessings in Jesus name.

  6. What a precious testimony to God's faithfulness! I have discovered that God shows Himself most powerful when I'm at my weakest. God bless you!

  7. I have thought often of you and your husband these days, and continue to pray for complete healing for both of you. This is such a beautiful post, and the flowers you shared are indeed so lovely. Much love, Lidia
