First streaks of daylight
Life is often full of uncertainties. This was proven to me in my blog post today. I thought I had finished and safely published. I’m not sure what happened but it disappeared and I found it had not been published at all. I return now……. what I said before is unimportant my prayer that what I will now write may encourage or bless someone. Hope is like a torch we must cling to even in the midst of uncertainty.
Yesterday I met with the doctor following my five weeks of radiation and five weeks of ‘recovery’. I am grateful and should feel exultant about the result. Unlike many whose lives will be limited by their experiences, I have been told the future for me promises to be longer life and promising. Gratitude for this Grace knows no bounds.
However, even in this there is uncertainty. I know God has given great medical advances in our lifetimes. He is behind many significant break-throughs etc. For the rest of my life I may have to take a small insignificant tablet – one per day. This tablet is like a ‘safeguard’. However, there can be side effects. In some cases many. Few are life-threatening but life-limiting. In other cases none at all. Therein lies the uncertainty………I therefore cling to the hope that in ALL Things Jesus’ statement ‘I have come that they may have life and live life abundantly. John 10:10 can be fulfilled. May we all be grateful and thankful for every day we live! (No one has any certainty about how long).
Day follows night……flood comes after ebb….spring and summer will succeed winter. Hope then! Hope ever! God fails not.
Charles H. Spurgeon
Blessings and prayerful thoughts to others journeying through life with uncertainties. May HOPE blaze brilliantly.
p.s. I found the missing blog. It has been published in a separate link on the Home Page. What I wrote earlier was actually more concise than the above. The sentiment is the same. Have a great day and Week!
