|Flowers my husband received.....|
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!
