If you’ve never heard Marc Cohn, check him out. Soul, piano, heart, honesty, journey.
“I know there’s always something we have to go through
That has some deeper meaning but
Right now I just can’t say
I know there’s gonna be a lesson somewhere
I’m gonna think a lot about it later
But right now I’m miles away…” Miles Away, Marc Cohn
Just my two cents….being a Christian doesn’t mean things are going to be easy. It doesn’t mean you won’t get discouraged. It doesn’t mean that sometimes you just don’t want to deal with things. It does mean that God will pull you through it somehow.
“In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world.”~John 16:33
“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” ~Exodus 14:14
I am praising the One who loves me and fights for me this morning. Great report from Mr. Ankle Doctor yesterday….I can begin partial weight bearing, and the healing is occurring! I give all credit to Jesus, who is always with me, through the bad and the good. Thank you also to any of you who are praying….Love to you all, Lisa
Here is a song that I recorded at home…forgive the roughness….but it expresses my heart this morning.
Having an injury or illness mandates much waiting, much stillness, much hoping and praying. I am truly seeing what it is to wait for the Lord, to wait to see the mounting up with wings like eagles. In my oh-too-human moments, I doubt and fear and fret. But it is a promise….people who wait upon the Lord shall and will mount up with wings like eagles, we will walk and not grow faint. A promise, a sure hope. And that brings me past my human self for a time, to see the bigger thing that God wants me to see. He’s there, He’s always with me, He never leaves me, and He will carry me through. So thank you, God, for the waiting. It’s been good. Blessings to all of you who are also waiting. Slainte, Lisa
