Today and yesterday and all week long, I found my endurance not so strong.
Yet God refreshed me each and every day. And gave me courage and strength along the way.
As I recollect moment by moment, event by event – I am so thankful my Savior was sent.
He touched me, He held me, He carried me mainly; and He gave me a blessing that was heavenly painful.
Seeing children coming, desiring to be held by you; in this instance Christ Jesus shared His view.
Anxious, excited in need of a touch. Oh, Jesus – how were you able to give so much?
Faces light up as you pass by. Your name rings out in echoes and cries. But as you leave, a smile dies.
We should be like Jesus and spread His Light, but we walk only in a shadow of His power and might.
Only knowing Christ Jesus is real security, so sharing our faith may be the only Jesus some people see.
So from teeth pulling to lollipops; from clothes closet to beauty shop – with meds to fill and teeth to fill, oh how I wish the water was chilled!
But the water we drink need not be cold for the Water we share is centuries old.
Living water flows freely from Jehovah our God and bears fruit on heavenly sod.
Tape and bandages, shoes and glasses. As the week ends, we dread each moment that passes.
And soon we will leave behind this miraculous place, with eyes wide open not forgetting a face.
In the Bible we read about a mother named Hannah. Barren, without child, prayerfully she awaited God’s answer.
“For this child I prayed,” she explained to the Master and left him with Eli in the temple thereafter.
She never quit praying for that child as he grew. She thanked God profusely and gave Him the glory due.
Now as we depart and go far away – be like Hannah and do not forget to pray.
