Today is Wednesday. Things are quiet and still very hot all over the country. Things could be worse. Thank the good Lord for each minute of the day and that our families are healthy and strong. We all have great faith and our beliefs are unbreakable. From little girls and boys and mom and dad made sure we fear the power of the Lord because His power was and always is greater than anything made by man.
I remember Grandfather Beals as a Deacon always spoke of God’s power. At times he really had me afraid. I would go to bed at night thinking the Lord was going to do bad things. Now I understand the difference. He is kind, loving, not easily angered, and always forgiving and patient.
I understand that the Old Testament teaches about how God struck down the Israelites because they did not obey God’s command. When Jesus died on the cross, he put in a new covenant of good versus evil, where good always wins. So in my times of struggle I know that whatever the Lord has in store for me, good always wins.
At the church we attend, our Pastor is a teaching preacher. He gets right to the core of the scripture he reads. I would love to take our son to one of his services. I went to get my eyebrows waxed, the young lady said that during chemo therapy they are not allowed to wax them, so if I lose my hair I will have no need for waxing. It does not bother me either way. It’s no shame to lose your hair anymore. Let’s be proud and give God the glory for life. What’s up with the hair anyways. 🙂 Girls, let’s not worry about how we look, God loves us no matter what. Isn’t that all that matters, God’s love?
It’s 10:04 on Wednesday night and we’re at our son’s house, lining my mind up with the Lord for tomorrow’s chemotherapy. And I can just picture him sitting there holding my hand.
Today’s scripture (Psalms 115:18) But we will bless the Lord from this time forth and forever more. Praise the Lord.
