I am absolutely in awe of our Lord!
It has been a very difficult week for John. Last night I went to dinner with my ladies Bible study friends, and when I left I felt just defeated and worn out. John was at home and again not feeling his best. I think he felt a little defeated too. It had been a long week, and it was obvious that it was Thursday. It had taken it’s toll. How are we going to make it months like this before his heart comes?
After spending some time away, talking with girlfriends and having a diversion from life at home, I felt more energized by the time I got back home. When I walked in the door John was still up and awake and sitting in his recliner. ESPN was on the T.V., and he had his IPhone in his hand. He seems a little peppier, too, from the time I had left.
He said to me, “I want you to watch this.” And he handed me his phone. This is what I saw.
Throughout this blog I have tried to capture God’s words to us, how He is using us, and how he is encouraging us through this process. And I have mentioned that His encouragement comes daily through His Word, through the quiet, small voice of the Holy Spirit, through our circumstances, through the people around us, and through things we read and hear. And when I say daily, I literally mean daily.
Once again He has brought us another story of hope. Hope for now and hope for our future. These stories, these gifts from God, are what help us to stay focused on Him and the fact that He is orchestrating this whole process and that He has big plans for John.
John watched this video a few more times last night. This morning he watched this one and another I found from just this week before he went to work. To see the look in his eyes, the smile on his face, and the renewed hope the Lord brought us last night and into today, gives me one more reason of endless reasons to be in awe of our Lord.
Thank you God, again, and again, and again.
