Hello everyone…I know that it’s been awhile since we spent some time together. Actually, I have been laid up in extreme pain…only this time it’s been something else besides the leg pain.
About a week ago, I woke up early to post a writing…and within a short time, my left arm and hand was in extreme pain. At first I thought that it could have possibly been related to my heart; but later I came to see that I had injured my arm while sleeping.
Today I am much better than a week ago; but at this time, I am only able to type with my right hand, which has been a challenge. It’s been amazing though, as I have seen days of increase on the ministries website, which only goes to show that God is truly in control of all things…and that when we aren’t able…He is…praise Him!
While away from ministry work, I was getting something out of my wallet one day…and I had come across a card with the name “Diane” on it. As I began to pull the card out of the wallet; there was a meaning for my name, along with a Bible verse, which I would like to share with you today. The biblical meaning behind my name is “Divine One”…and the Bible verse that is printed on the card is found in Psalm 18:2…and we read… “The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust…”
You know…when we look back to Paul in the Bible…we also remember a time when he begged the Lord three times to remove the thorn of affliction from him; but God’s response in 2 Corinthians 12:9 was this… “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.”
As my eyes were drawn more and more to the card that I had found in my wallet; I began to see that God was reminding me that even though He couldn’t remove this thorn of affliction from me at the time…that He would be my rock to hold to, along with the strength I would need, to get through another tough moment in my life…and because of this, I did find it easier to trust and love Him through it all.
One thing I did come to see through this time; was that He was allowing me to be out of commission for a while, as a reminder that He doesn’t always need me, to do His job for Him…and that He may have other plans that don’t include me at the moment…which has also became a great reminder to me; that this God I serve is even more powerful then I can even fathom.
May I encourage you today, to never give up on what may seem to be an endless road of despair…for God may be up to something that hasn’t been revealed to you yet. Just trust Him and know that this God, who is greater than anything, will never fail or forsake you.
Well…time to rest both arms now. I never knew that I could type one handed; but God did…and He is truly reminding me today; that we can do all things through Him and the strength He gives us to do it.
Many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him
