8 Days of Thanksgiving

[Psa 37:1-7 KJV] 1 [[[A Psalm] of David.]] Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. 3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; [so] shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. 4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring [it] to pass. 6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. 7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

I preached on these verses last Sunday at our morning Church Service. The key words being, Trust, Delight, Commit, and Rest were the subject of the sermon. The topic was  the lessons that Nancy and I have learned in the weeks of hospitalization and rehablilitation that have been our life in the last two months. Nancy has been under the care of doctors and nurses since September 30th. During that time we have been involved in a long term trial that is ongoing and has taught us much about the faith we have in God. 

It has been said that faith untried is not real faith. It remains in doubt. We understand that as never before. I have no doubt that our faith is real. It has stood and continues to stand in the face of our circumstances. Inspite of everything, I know that we are both better people who in the future will be more loving and more atuned to the needs of others than we ever have been before.

These last 8 days, we have continued to see the hand of God directing us. He leads every step of the way. Nancy and I are now back at Encompass Rehabilitation Hospital where Nancy is learning again to stand and walk so her life can return to normalcy. We have been told our release date is on December 12. We need all of you to pray with us that Nancy's strength will increase so that she is ready for the transition.

Our adventure into adversity is far from over but we are Trusting, Delighting, Commiting, and Resting in our Lord and Savior! We are looking for His total deliverance from this time of trial and distress.

Keep Looking Up!
