Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength [rock of ages] (Isa. 26:3-4).
Last night the trouble brought by a girl running off with Mom’s car created an opportunity. Marj and Jack witnessed to Mom about how the Lord worked in their daughter’s heart. Consequently, I praised the Lord even for troubles in my life.
Mom commented, “When I start to worry, Lynn keeps telling me to pray and not to worry. I worried that these troubles would be too much for Lynn, but she seems to be holding up just fine. The LORD can do great things.”
Sometimes, I pray others can see the Lord in me. I wonder if they can see Him at all. It appears like I get in the way so much. However, in her testimony Mom said she saw the work of God in me. Praise the Lord! Perhaps, this is the opening of a door whereby I can share more with Mom.
Pain kept me from falling asleep right away. A sweet peace from the Lord pervaded my soul. Several Scripture verses came to my mind as I meditated upon the Lord in the night watches (Psa. 55:22; Isa. 26:3-4; 1 Pet. 5:7).
My hope in God is sure. Someday I shall see my Saviour. “My dead body shall...arise” or I shall meet Him in the skies (Isa. 26:19; 1 Thess 4:16-17). I desire to go up with others in the Rapture, but if men lay my dead body in the grave, I shall arise. I shall be forever with the Lord. After I see my Saviour, I’ll see those who have gone on before: my beloved husband, my Mom, Grandma, and others. Praise the Lord!
Meanwhile, when troubles come, I will go to my hiding place in the Lord. He will sustain me.
Oh Lord, may others see Jesus in me. Help me to keep looking up to Thee. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
