I get to…

This is not a place I want to be, but it is where I get to…

  • Be grateful for medical professionals and their care
  • Be thankful that different from last time – Ed walked in here without a walker…and different than the time before that, when a,wheel chair was needed.
  • Be aware and thankful that he was able to answer 99% of the nurses questions
  • Praise God for every bit of gains made in physical strength and cognitive improvements these last few months
  • Praise Him that in answer to prayers the meds only do Ed good and no harm
  • Rest knowing that God is faithful, He is at work in us and for us. He cares for us and takes the cares that we release to Him.
  • Trust that we will see the victory already won for us by Christ manifested in God’s perfect timing.

For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.
Jeremiah 29:11 AMPC

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
1 Corinthians 15:57 MEV

Give thanks to God, our King over all gods! His tender love for us continues on forever!
Psalm 16:2 TPT

First Memories

My first memory of God is when I was six years old and in first grade at a christian school, My class memorized Psalm 100 to recite. Thank God (literally), I didn’t know any better than to believe what it said. You know what? It’s as true today as it was when King David penned it so long ago.

Here are the basics that I learned:

  • He made me.
  • I am His.
  • He is good.
  • Be thankful.

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.  Psalm 100 (KJV)
