God Blessing in spite of the storms...
Where to start, been a week since I updated, and so much has happened since then, I am still praising the lord, and thanking him for keeping his hand upon us. We had water come all the way up to the carport, but none in the house, thank you lord, some did get in my dh little blue car, and started coming in his shed, but no real damage, with water you never know, it has an unstoppable power that rages through where ever it may, some may loose faith, but I know God allows things to happen to us also, just like the lost world, it rains on the just and the unjust, one of my verses I remember now, and took it very serious this past week. Mt 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Some times we just need to be reminded of this statement, even when we are in the will of God, doing his work we still may go through some things that are not very good, though very profitable to our spiritual being, this has been one of these times. Take a minute and pray for all those who have been so devastated with the flooding, the fires, and the earthquakes, to name a few, seem God is pouring his wrath out on America, how many of us are looking up and listening and then heeding his ways? I for one am, and know many who read this blog do too, we much not take a day for granted, but live like it is our last, doing all we can to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We had a wonderful week so far, the church we been attending had services Tuesday evening, we went and were blessed by the wonderful and special singing, and preaching. Now yesterday being a holiday, I fixed a macaroni salad, hot dogs, and fresh tomatoes from our garden, although the water destroyed much of our garden we did have a few tomatoes left. Then last night went to a local church having services, and was blessed yet again, God word is true and does what it says, fills us with complete joy, and gladness, such simple verses can really touch your heart, and bring in joy ever lasting.
Today, staying inside, too hot to do much outside, still in the high 90's here, and the humidity is way high too, best place for old folks like us is inside. We may venture out later to pick up a few things needed, but not for long, I hope your Thursday is a good as mine, and you can say along with me, Praise God for his goodness and mercy upon me. Have a blessed day, and know Jesus loves you.
