'Facing The Facts of Life With Faith'

The last article that we posted was entitled 'Facing the Future with Faith'.
Much has happened in our family since that posting, so I felt led to follow it up with 'Facing the Facts of Life with Faith'.

One 'fact' is that I am 82 yrs old....(and you readers are not getting any younger either).
You're probably saying, "Tell me something I don't know" :)

The purpose of this paper is to hopefully help you and to give you encouragement.
The prophet Isaiah wrote in 46:4.....
"Even to your old age, I am God and I will carry you. I made you and will carry you along and deliver you."

Remember that whatever your age, God isn't through with you yet.
A Precious Promise: "I will never leave you nor forsake you!"

I like the old song "O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go"
(Words: George Matheson 1882) (Music: Albert L. Peace 1884)

O Love that wilt not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

O light that followest all my way,
I yield my flickering torch to thee;
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.

O Cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.

Please remember that God will never let you down and when you are 'down', He will pick you up. Know the Promises in the Bible for they are equal to His presence.

I am a cancer survivor....and our precious 45 yr. old daughter Kristin, is recovering from breast cancer surgery which she had last week. How thankful we are for God, the Great Physician, Who works miraculously through doctors and medicine as well as healing directly from His Throne!

As La Moyne and Kristin were sharing thoughts this week, Kristin mentioned a book by Corrie ten Boom entitled "Don't Wrestle...Just Nestle !" Kristin will be meeting with an Oncologist on Friday about the 'unknowns' ahead of her. We have seen and felt a calmness in Kristin's spirit. It was so special to hear her say that she wants to be a witness for the Lord through all of this. We will keep you posted as to what type of treatment she will be needing. We (and she) would appreciate your prayers!

Isn't it encouraging that as the physical and mental seem to ebb away, God has ocean waves of His precious promises to carry us through difficult times? As we age, we need the 'Ageless One'!!

As we prepare for the celebration of His Birth and schedules get 'overloaded', it would be good to remember "Don't Wrestle....Just Nestle".






If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
