Confusion in this mix

        PERFECT LOVE found in Jesus Christ casts out ALL fear.      I understand therefore I can as a child of God, discard all labels saying I have a phobia on ‘this’ topic or ‘that’ topic.    I can believe a lifestyle or action Is against God’s prescribed order for quality of life without being fearful in any way.   All humans are God’s kids and need a Saviour.    

        Yet inside me I had a gentle fear and sorrow at the certainty some problems I cannot fix. 

         Two things collided yesterday – an awareness of our first-born child’s terminal illness that is drastically altering her quality of life.     Prayerfully surrendering her to God brings PEACE  

           Writing of Memoirs took me back down the tunnel of my life reminding me of amazing God events as well as the sorrows of remembered folks and friends long gone Home.     I remembered God moments of learning growth and the deep valleys and mountain tops.

                 This brought back a reality of strengthened Hope and PEACE like a rolling river.

                    How can we be HOPEFUL, Thankful, JOYFUL and PEACEFUL and yet still be aware of an inside sadness? 

                       The answer I believe is honesty in Prayer and a vital Communication with Him expressing it ALL.        Your comments appreciated.     

                This Psalm I found seemed to express my heart’s yearning.

      Psalm 5.1 

               Give ear to my words,

                             O Lord

                 Consider my meditation.

               God heed to the voice of my cry.

               My King and my GOD.

                For to You I will pray.

               My voice You shall hear in the morning

                   O Lord.  

              In the morning I will direct it to You.

                               I will look up.

               Jesus Christ has now made it PERSONAL.

                                          In His Name


        For all reading these words.  HE IS Alive look up.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    First of all Faye, I am deeply saddened to learn of your eldest’s illness. I promise to include a call for healing on their behalf in my daily prayers. Second, I will be praying for your motherly heart as well, may you rest in the comfort of Mary – who walks beside you in her understanding. Lastly, “Yet inside me I had a gentle fear and sorrow at the certainty some problems I cannot fix.” I gently sighed when I read that line you wrote. I understand this feeling deeply. Indeed, we mourn over the problems we cannot fix, but it is because we have LOVED first; otherwise, there would be nothing to mourn over. May God bless you for those moments you loved strong enough to mourn what is/has been lost. And always remember…”Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted.” Matt 5:4 💕 Hugs!

        I’m happy for Dawn Marie’s comment to you. May you take her words to heart and be comforted regarding your beloved child. From a mother’s heart out sons/daughters always remain our “child.” Love one, dear Lady.
