This entry told you some of what the last few months have challenged and encouraged me with. At this point in time, as the song says, I cannot see the end of the storm but I'm trusting in a faithful God. But also, I was touched by these words...
'I believe you still heal
And demons still bow
I'm convince there is power
in trusting in a faithful God
So I will praise til you appear
And set your foot upon this shore
I declare that every foe
is subject to MY faithful God.
(lyrics by Gateway Worship).
If you didn't watch the video of Zac Smith from this entry then I ask that you go back and watch it now. I am inspired by Zac words which his wife repeated as she accept his award Thursday night, they are still ringing in my ears. I don't doubt for a moment that the Lord can heal the problems with my stomach that even the doctors don't understand. And I believe with every fiber of my being that he could take them away in a split second. But whether or not he choses too - God is still God, and God is still good. My God is a faithful God - and my hope, my trust, and most often lately it seems, my strength, are found in Him.
It's been a tough couple of months. First with my stomach problems. Then oral surgery a few weeks ago. Followed my a back injury a couple days after surgery.
I am incredibly humbled by the response I received to 'An Entry 8 Months in the Making'. I have seen over and over the Lord use my struggles this year to bring glory to His name and while my body isn't quite there, my heart rejoices with Him. I can say to you with great joy...
It is well, it is well with my soul.
