It is night and everyone is in bed. The dripping rain outside my window is like many little fingers of massaging angels ministering to my aching body. You know how it is, when you are so tired but your mind won’t shut off. Today I am thankful for my faith that God watches over me and listens when we are close and I lift up the fears and pain of those I love. Tonight as I lay here in bed, remembering what my youth group leader taught us that we are to be thankful even in the bad times. Thankyou Jesus for walking through our troubles with us. Thankyou God for your wise use of the pain of this world to mold us into a creature more like you and less of selfish nature. Please give wisdom to those asking what to do, and skill to the doctors doing surgery tomorrow for cancer patient. Please send angels to be with those with short time here on earth. Bless your faithful servants with your presence. As the old hym says…Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.
- O soul, are you weary and troubled? No light in the darkness you see? There’s light for a look at the Savior, And life more abundant and free!
- Refrain: Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace.
- Through death into life everlasting He passed, and we follow Him there; O’er us sin no more hath dominion— For more than conqu’rors we are!
- His Word shall not fail you—He promised; Believe Him, and all will be well: Then go to a world that is dying, His perfect salvation to tell!
