What a last few days I have had:

  • Last Friday I was changing my mother’s sheets on her bed, and I twisted my back for the third time this month.
  • I had two nuclear type stress tests last week.  I will know the results and what my cardiologist found plus what he may want to do next.
  • My mother is failing in her health the last two days. She has been passing out often. She has been on hospice care, and the hospice nurse thinks they were actually mini strokes.

Since I am being bombarded with many trials the last few days, I want to share some thoughts I found on my trials during my devotions the last few weeks:

  • God meets our needs in amazing ways, and we can be involved in other’s lives in the same way. We can be agents of hope. In other words, through my own trials I can help others.
  • I can be assured that God is active and at work in my life, including my trials, my church, my community, and my world, bringing His purposes and His plan into completion. I learned from this that not matter what I face God has a purpose, and it is a part of His plan.
  • The wonderful amazing grace, that the Lord has extended to me must be what I model and practice in my relationships with others. Again, I should never be angry or upset because of my trails.

Do I have reason to be upset? I guess so. This last week has been a huge burden on me. The stress has been pulling me down like a huge magnate.

But, I am not. I know God loves me, and I know that all things work for the good of those who believe.

Never let circumstances dictate your life. Keep a steady walk with the Lord, even through the storms and trials.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

 

Life is Like a Roller Coaster Ride.

Oh my aching back. No I really mean my aching back! I was changing my mother’s sheets on her bed two days ago, and tweaked my back. I thought it was getting better last night, but in my sleep I must of turned the wrong way and tweaked it again. The pain is back, and I am struggling again.

Does this happen to you? Do you have times when you have faced a storm, and you make it through that storm, but later it comes back to haunt you again?

Life is not a bed of roses. Life is not apple pie, and Chevrolet.  It is about the ups and downs of our daily routine. Sometimes we are rolling along fine, and other days we don’t feel like getting up and facing the world that day.

This is called a roller coaster ride. It is not always fun and games. We need to always keep God in our thoughts, and prayers going up to Him daily.

Yes, God allows the storms, but He is also there to help calm them.

My back feels much better when I put my heating pad there, and let it do its stuff. God is our warm fuzzy. God loves each and every one of us. He is just a prayer away.

With God on our side, who can be against us.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

When all the doors you have tried seem to be close, and there doesn’t look like a way to accomplish something, that is when God enters the picture. God is higher, deeper, wider, broader, than all wall you may face. he can help you to keep going and win the race.

Never feel that you are alone. God is always there. He created you, and loves you.

If it is finances you worry about, remember God feeds the tiny sparrows. If it is fear, God says “fear not.” If it is needing courage to go on, God is there holding your hand to walk you through the storms and trials.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
