We Are Blessed! Rejoice and Be Glad!

Multiple scriptures profess the steadfast faithfulness of God to remain near us during our time of difficulty.  I am tired today and have much to do in my world, so I can’t take the time to look them up and post them for you.  But Joshua 1:9 is one that pops to mind quickly in these days . . .

“Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” 

Wherever . . . and in whatever!

But Abba is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.
He is only faithful!
He is truly merciful!
We are greatly blessed!
We are perfectly loved!

But I am also flesh and blood and I struggle, I hurt and I am sad.

I am so grateful for a Savior who loves me in the midst of my weakness just as much as when I am responding strong!

“This is the day the Lord has made.  
I will rejoice and be glad in it! 
Ps 118:24

My dryer was not drying, now it is fixed—I rejoice and am glad!
My Littles have been sick, but are now well—I rejoice and am glad!
Co-op begins Friday, I am unprepared...but—I rejoice and am glad!
So many have loved & carried us to Abba—I rejoice and am glad!
I do not understand the silence of others...but—I rejoice and am glad!
The medical bills have begun to hit...but—I rejoice and am glad!
I am weepy & struggle to focus on things...but—I rejoice and am glad!
The Fair is on and the Fair is fun—I rejoice and am glad!
We are surrounded by kindness & generosity—I rejoice and am glad!

I miss the voice I have loved hearing since I was 14...but—
I rejoice and am glad!
