Blessed in Disguise


     How many of you out there like to vacuum?  How often do you do this chore, weekly?  I have my area vacuumed three times a week because of my cat's and dog's hair.  There is also a different kind of vacuuming that goes on here quite often.  I have a cough assist machine that is like a vacuum for my lungs.  Can you imagine having to vacuum your bedroom or the whole house every time you ate something?  That is my daily trial of keeping my lungs clear.  It may take 5 minutes or 30 minutes
      Although it is painless, it is bothersome.  I have to recognize this chore as a blessing because without it I would be sick more often.  Actually I wish the machine had become available to me sooner because it is such a help.
      Let me share three assurances to remember when troublesome circumstances arise.  First, God will meet all our needs at just the right time.  Second, we are never alone.  God is with us every step of the trial.  Third, God's love is eternal. He will never forsake us.
      I haven't always had this burden to bear but I know it is for my good and I'm blessed to have my needs met, both physically and spiritually, from above.
