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.
Give ear to my words,
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
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.
