"For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds," says the Lord. (Jeremiah 30:17)
Yes, it's been a very harrowing New Year for our family already. We managed to get the dreaded stomach bug that seems to be floating about our church...flattening everyone in it's wake.
"O Lord my God, I cried out to You, and You have healed me." (Psalm 30:2)
I've had a few epiphanies of my own throughout this experience though...for example...it's much better to be sick yourself than for your young children to be sick. Yes, yes...because it's hard to watch them suffer...but also...it's just hard to clean up after them. Ugh! I lost a throw rug in this battle! Poor thing will never be the same...
"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds ... Great is our Lord, and mighty in power ..." (Psalm 147:3)
Of course, you know my sick (haha) sense of humor thought of countless funnies amid the flood of fluids. I thought it was sort of ironic. I mean, I talked about wanting to start the year on bended knees...reverently before God...giving Him control....
"And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:19)
...just didn't anticipate the cold porcelain kneeling bench! HA!
"But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing." (Psalm 24:10)
Thankfully, we are all back on the mend again...and just for the record...I haven't missed a day on my Bible reading schedule yet! Yeah!
