I am taking some time tonight to post from my husbands work laptop as we no
longer have internet access or cable ( ooh we are growing over here! ;)
I still won't be posting much for awhile but I will be stopping into your
blogs as I can because I love hearing about How God is sustaining all of you :)...
I thank God for the peace He gives over the believer, that I can trust in Him to do what only He can do. That I can live by grace and not by my works. Whenever I decide to completely trust Him, He stills and quiets my mind and my heart in the way only He can do. A lot of hard things have come up over the past month... deep emotional
dissapointments, financial hardship, deep fear for my husbands welfare and safety
as he has been tackling two full-time jobs since the end of November, and as I have witnessed him going from one shift into another on 3 or 4 hours of sleep. Add to that the physical and mental exhaustion of being suddenly thrust into the role of a single-mom for 3 (child-care wise) and that would sum up December for us.
I got thrown off by emotions at first, awakening at night from deeep sleep to Grace's cries and then finding myself awake for 30 minutes or more, thinking about those things and turning them over and over in my mind. Then I started bringing my Bible upstairs to bed with me again and reading the Psalms as I did a few years ago when my husband and I were making some hard choices,mainly for me to quit working outside of home and for me to home school. All this to say, the lighthouse of God'sword stayed bright and solid on the rock as I tossed my way back to Him over the waves of emotion. He always quiets my soul at the foot of the cross. I still don't know all the answers about what is going to happen with this or that, but quiet I become as He shows me again and again,that it is all in His hands. I love this scripture:
"The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer!" Amen!!
(Psalms 18:2) Love in Christ to you all as you also live out your lives under God's grace, in whatever circumstances you find yourself in. All of ours different, and yet all under His grace. Amazing! XO'S <3
