Hold On

just wait

        Good grief, I'm trying!!  Do you ever question God's timing?  I know it's probably self centered doubt because we don't see His whole picture in everything.
       'He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.' —Isaiah 40:29
        Sometimes we feel powerless in whatever we are going through and we need to rely on God's strength even more.  'In contrast to the strength that youth and health provide, the person of faith can persevere long after others have given up on the race of life.'  He promises us that, for each new day, “Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
       I think that when we focus too much on ourselves, it can be a blinder to us seeing the good works God is doing around us.  Count your blessings name them one by one....... 1] I am well while others around me are sick, 2] Karla's new grandson, Myles, was delivered safely and healthy, 3]  We are working together as a family and feeling blessed, 4] His protection over us has kept us from all hurt, harm and danger, and 5] I'm a work in progress and I know that this is a part of the process in transforming me into who He wants me to be.
       I know if I lose my grip, He will catch me because 'we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.' Romans 8:28


  1. what strength he has given you to see so much. You are a real encourager. Love Dad

  3. This is a "ditto" for me. Love ya, grace

  4. My sweet friend, Sharon Davis, had a favorite song and a favorite saying...."Count your them one by one"....just as you have done. I try to always remember that, as well as Romans 8:28. Love you, T.
