Thankful Thursday

I was studying these verses this morning in my quiet time, and thought I would share with you, I cannot sit long enough to really expound on it, but it says I wait patiently for the lord, that is the thrust of the verses, waiting, patiently, right now I can not wait any other way, it is in the lords hands how quick I heal and can be up and about. I am doing much better and expect to do even better daily, that is my goal and I pray that it is the Father's will also. I am waiting on him to stand me up, plant my feet on higher ground, amen, usually when I sit up I need a stack of pillows under my foot to prop up my leg, will be glad to be on solid ground again, and back in the house of God with his folks, I really miss that the most. I do have a wonderful in home Physical Therapist, she is so good, an such a great asset, she has helped in so many ways, little tips here and there. I go to get my staples out the 5th, that will be a relief too, so I am progressings. So keep praying, it is working, and I will be back full force soon, love each of you.

1 ¶ To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

4 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

5 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us–ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

6 ¶ Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.

7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.

9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.

10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

Hi Barbara, So glad you are doing better. Sounds like you are coming right along. Miss your post every day. Yes, waiting patiently is so hard to do. I guess the hardest for me. Keep hanging in there. Just think of how much better you are going to feel. Praying for you.
Love and prayers are sent your way.

So glad to read that you are feeling a bit better.

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.

So glad to hear from you. Isn't God faithful? What would we do if we couldn't trust Him? As we start a trial, knowing that He will see us through to the other side is our hope and comfort. God bless you and heal you quickly.

Isn't wonderful how His word speaks to us just as we need it? He sends us the right words at the right time to provide the support we need. It is a blessing to hear that you are doing well. For a different reason, I have had pillows propping while confined to what in other times would be a comfortable chair. Knowing you are wrapped in prayer helps, doesn't it?
